CANINE PARTNER PROGRAM THROUGH AKC
AKC Canine Partners program is for ALL dogs; purebred or otherwise, to have fun and be recognized.
Your dog’s AKC Canine Partners number is their ticket to participate in Agility, AKC Rally, Obedience, Tracking and Coursing Ability. AKC also honors therapy dogs with the AKC Therapy Dog title. We partner with other dog sports organizations to recognize their titles, including the North American Flyball Association, the Barn Hunt Association and some Search & Rescue groups. To learn more, go to www.akc.org/register/information/canine-partners/enroll/.
The AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) program is now a titling program for both dogs registered with the AKC, as well as dogs enrolled in AKC Canine Partners Program (not an AKC Registration), enabling them to earn official AKC titles. The CGC rewards dogs that demonstrate basic obedience and manners. You can get started through AKC STAR Puppy classes, if your dog is a puppy. Once your dog has worked through the CGC award, you can advance to the newest title; AKC Community Canine which shows your dog can demonstrate his good training in public.
