AKC Approved CGC Evaluators

AKC Approved CGC Evaluators administer the CGC, AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy and AKC Community Canine programs. Some evaluators offer one or two levels of CGC, others offer training and/or testing on all three levels. By selecting your state below, you’ll be able to see the names of instructors/evaluators in areas nearest where you live.

AKC Approved CGC Evaluators (who also administer AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy and AKC Community Canine) include local trainers with dog training schools. In addition, the three levels of CGC are also offered by some 4-H leaders, therapy dog evaluators, and veterinarians. If your current trainer is not familiar with the CGC program, AKC can provide the trainer with assistance in becoming an evaluator.
