Join us for our fun Trick Dog Workshop Series, and if you'd like, earn your AKC Novice Tricks Title. Teaching tricks strengthens the bond you have with your dog while improving your dog's focus, attention, and enthusiasm. Each workshop focuses on a different set of tricks allowing you to move one step closer to earning your AKC Trick Dog Title.

Workshop #1 in the series will focus on the following tricks:

  • Crawl
  • Push Up
  • Shake
  • Get in a Box

Workshop #2 in the series will focus on the following tricks:

  • Spin
  • Kiss
  • Jump
  • Paws Up

*After each workshop, you'll have the opportunity to upload a video of you and your dog performing these tricks for review by your instructor. Once you have completed 10 tricks (or 5 tricks +CGC title), your paperwork will be approved for your ACK Novice Trick Dog title.

Want to grab your Canine Good Citizen (CGC) title? Sign up for the next CGC Prep Class  and test for the CGC Certification.
