TRICK DOGGING SIGN UP

 

Trick Dogging is for Teams that want to have fun, love to train, like to practice tricks, want to play with new skills, are  curious about learning more, and are interested in earning TITLES. 


Want to know what we are looking for? Scroll down to view the TITLING LEVELS and our TITLED TEAMS!


This is an on-line program, where you submit the form below, submit your payment, and a link to your video entry. If your tricks match the LEVEL you are working on, we will list you on our TITLE page and send you a certificate of achievement.


This program has no time limits, you work at your own pace, and submit your videos when you and your dog are ready. It's that simple, and that awesome! 


Paws & People Founder, Nancy Tanner has been trick training for over seventeen years, and believes in a strong creative foundation for all training programs. If you cannot attend one of her workshops, or you are ready to earn TITLES, this is a way she has found for everyone to participate, and have fun!


 

INFO & RULES

1. For reward based trainers. No exceptions. This is about your dog, make it good all the way around! Your dog must show willingness to play with you.

2. Yes you can reward your dog while filming, BUT you cannot lure your dog with food or toy, big difference.

3. You can use voice and/or body cues for each trick, but you cannot hand, food, or toy lure your dog into position/s.
