Enter our CCA on
May 1st, 2022 HERE! Current CCA
event is Full for 2022.
CCA from the GRCA.ORG website
"General Purposes of Program The purposes of the CCA program are to (a) provide a noncompetitive means of evaluating and scoring the conformation qualities of individual Golden Retrievers against the Breed Standard (as opposed to a competitive “dog-to-dog” compari- son as in dog show competition); (b) provide a useful and informative evaluation with verbal and recorded assessments by knowledgeable evaluators of the conformation qualities of individual Golden Retrievers; (c) provide archived records of the completed evaluations for all Golden Retrievers that have been assessed to generate reports for historical purposes. Recognition will be based on achievement by any Golden Retriever of three qualifying scores of 75 or greater (out of a possible 100) for a CCA as assessed by three different evaluators. It is expected that many dogs that may never enter in formal conformation competition would qualify for a CCAunder the program. In addition to the qualifying score of 75 or greater, certain minimum scores will be required in order to obtain the CCA title (explained under “Scoring”). In addition, the number of attempts to qualify will be limited to six evalua- tions for any one Golden Retriever."

WC/WCX from the GRCA.ORG
GRCA's purpose in establishing and making available a Working Certificate (WC) and Working Certificate Excellent (WCX) to all owners of Golden Retrievers is to encourage the use and maintenance of the natural hunting and retrieving abilities which are genetically vital to the breed.
