MFGRC To Hold CCA July 16 in Ocala; Space is Limited

The Mid-Florida Golden Retriever Club will hold a CCA (Certificate of Conformation Assessment) on Saturday, July 16, in Ocala, Fla. The CCA is a program of the Golden Retriever Club of America (GRCA) and offers an AKC-recognized title.

The MFGRC’s CCA will be limited to 18 entries on a first-come, first-served basis, with one alternate. The entry fee is $75 and entries close on July 2. Entries must be accompanied by a copy of the dog’s AKC registration.

Entries should be sent to Robin Bowen, event secretary, at 3001 SW College Rd., PMB 41, Ocala, Fla., 34474. Checks should be made payable to MFGRC.

Entry form

The event will begin at 8 a.m. at the MADTA (Marion-Alachua Dog Training Association) building, located at 6600 NW 3rd Place, Ocala, Fla., 34482.

The purpose of the CCA is to provide education to owners on proper breed conformation. It is a non-competitive, one-on-one evaluation where dogs are assessed against the standard, not against each other.
The CCA provides the owner with a chance to demonstrate their dog’s qualities in a relaxed environment (dogs are expected to be casually groomed and handled). The owners receive both verbal and written feedback from the evaluator, and evaluations are confidential. The dog receives a numerical score based on the breed standard, and those that score above a 75 are granted the title, which can be put on the dog’s AKC record.

More details are available on the GRCA website:
