AKC Community Canine Midnight Madness

Now this is dedication!


The Brainerd Kennel Club in Brainerd, Minnesota held a “Midnight Madness” event to provide the new AKC Community Canine test. This took place early (early!) Tuesday morning and the dogs pictured above achieved the CGCA title. Congratulations, and thanks for your support of the new program!

AKC Community Canine is the advanced level of AKC’s Canine Good Citizen (CGC) program. As with CGC, AKC Community Canine has a 10-step test of skills that dogs must pass to earn the official AKC Community Canine title. While Canine Good Citizen tests are simulations of real world skills, (e.g., dog/handler walks through a “crowd” of evaluators in a ring), the goal of AKC Community Canine is to test the dog’s skills in a natural setting. For example, rather than the dog being tested in a ring, in AKC Community Canine, the “walks through a crowd” test item will involve the dog walking through a real crowd at a dog show, on a busy sidewalk, in a therapy dog setting, or at a training club.
