  • Advanced is not a separate test that would be offered per se but is always available to anyone who has already earned their basic title at the desired level.  The dog runs the same JH/SH/MH test as everyone else but must earn an overall average of 8.  It is the owner’s responsibility to track their dog’s progress towards an advanced title via a form that is downloadable from the AKC website which they need to bring with them to the test for certification of qualifying scores and signature by the test secretary.
