September 3, 2016, at the Grass Valley Dog Show, Chou Chou Briard tested for the Advanced Canine Good Citizen title (also known as Community Canine). She earned the CGC on her first birthday, but I haven't seen the test for Advanced CGC offered until now.
She had to pass 10 tasks; all involved being focused and obedient during distractions -- and at a dog show, there are a lot of distractions!
She took the test with 6 other dogs. She stood in line with them and waited her turn to perform each task. And she passed all 10.
So now she has a new AKC title, CGCA, added after her name, along with her Advanced Therapy Dog (THDA) title. Good work, Chou!
("I have earned 4 titles! But AKC drops the CGC and the THD from my name when I earn the advanced titles. So unfair!")
