CGCA (Advanced Canine Good Citizen) or AKC Community Canine

$140 AKC Community Canine is the advanced level of the AKC's Canine Good Citizen Program. Whereas Canine Good Citizen tests are most often tested in a ring and situations are simulated (e.g., 3 helpers serve as a "crowd"), the AKC Community Canine test is done in real situations including at shows, classes, and in the community. All dogs must have completed and passed the Canine Good Citizen test prior to enrollment into this course.

CGCU (Urban Canine Good Citizen)

$140 AKC Urban CGC requires that the dog demonstrate CGC skills and beyound in a setting that includes traffic, crowds, noises, smells, and other distractions that are present in a city or town. As with Canine Good Citizen, AKC Urban CGC is a 10-step test of skills that dogs must pass to earn the official AKC Urban CGC title. Dogs must demonstrate they are well-behaved and well-trained when in public settings to earn this title.
