CDCA Versatility Program

CDCA Versatility titles open to AKC / Canadian / International registered Canaans or AKC PAL-registered Canaans owned by CDCA members in good standing. Performance and breed titles / certificates for eligibility requirements must be earned in United States. A higher event level title may be used to complete any Versatility level title, but may not be re-used for another Versatility title. Titles from ONE level lower may be used to round out the title requirements of a level, but may not be used to satisfy skill level requirements such as Novice, Open or Advanced titles as listed below (e.g., V titles would not count past VI level for a VI+ title).

Disclaimer: The requirements for any CDCA Versatility Award may be changed without notice. Notwithstanding the satisfaction of any such requirements, Versatility Awards are subject to the ultimate discretion of the CDCA Board of Directors.

Certificates to be issued for CDCA-V, CDCA-VI and CDCA-VI+; plaque to be issued for CDCA-VM.
