AKC Urban Canine (CGCU)

AKC Urban CGC is more advanced than the Canine Good Citizen and is for dogs who live in urban settings. Dogs who pass the AKC Urban CGC test earn the official AKC Urban CGC title that is designated by the letters “CGCU” on the dog’s title record.  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 Urban CGC test is done in real situations.

Prerequisites:  To earn the AKC Urban Canine title, dogs must meet the following two requirements:

  1. Have passed the AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test.  
  2. Must have an AKC registration number, PAL number, or AKC Canine Partners number.  (Note, all dogs, including mixed breeds, can get an AKC number)
