What Does a Trick Dog Title Mean? 

A trick dog title honors the dog, recognizing him as an intelligent and willing partner. It means that your dog loved you enough to work with you and try to understand you, no matter how crazy your requests and how clumsy your attempts.

A trick dog title honors your commitment to your dog, showing that he was important enough in your life to receive your time, your energy, and your undivided attention. You loved your dog enough to engage him, challenge him, bond with him, and help him achieve a goal.

You believed in your dog even when he failed; and you gave him another chance even
when nobody else would have; and in the end your faith in him was justified.

You are an owner who did more with your dog. And that makes your dog the luckiest dog in the world.

—Kyra Sundance

Tricks?  I Don't Care If My Dog Can Do Tricks...

Tricks and Agility work are a great way to practice obedience while having a ton of fun with your dog.  We believe training should be fun for you too.

 

Trick training provides lots of things to you and your dog:
 

  1. Mental and Physical Challenges
     

  2. A Sense of Accomplishment as a team
     

  3. It encourages communication between you and your dog
     

  4. The trick training process actually practices the your dog's manners in a way that shows immediate results.
     

  5. Tricks are a great way to expose your pup to new things and work on their self confidence. 
     

  6. Each new trick is a new challenge for you and your dog to figure out together!
