CGC as a Title

As of January 1, 2013, Canine Good Citizen® will become an  official AKC title that can appear on the title records of dogs registered or  listed with AKC. Dog owners who complete  the CGC as a Title process may list the suffix “CGC” after the dog’s name.

Since the program began in 1989, CGC™ has been considered an  “award,” meaning that it has not been listed on a dog’s title record.

As a result of frequent, ongoing requests from dog owners  and instructors for AKC to recognize CGC as a title, dog owners will have the  option of having CGC added to their dog’s title record and appear as a part of  the dog’s titled name.
