Tests can be taken at any age, but we recommend at least a year old. Once your dog passes the standard CGC, you may opt to test for either or both Community Canine and Urban Canine tests. Any dog may obtain a certificate from the AKC upon passing. Dogs can also earn a CGC title, but must be registered with one of the following: 1) AKC number, 2) Purebred Alternative Listing number (PAL), or 3) AKC Canine Partners number (for mixed-breed dogs). Visit the AKC's web site for more info.
Tests take approximately a half hour. The standard CGC and Community Canine tests are scheduled at our class locations and take about a half hour ($40). The Urban Canine test is scheduled at another predetermined location ($75).
