This is a title (CGCA) that appears on the dog’s title record at the AKC. Dogs must already have a Canine Good Citizen (CGC) award or title on record at the AKC to record the CGCA.
An AKC or PAL number is required to create and record your dog’s titles. See http://www.akc.org/dog-owners/training/akc-community-canine/
All dogs, purebred AND mixed breed can get an AKC number. There are 3 AKC number types available – AKC registration number, PAL number or AKC Canine Partners number.
