That's Right, Earn Trick Titles fromHome!
We are VERY excited to be able to offer this service to owners and their dogs!
The process is simple:
Review the AKC Trick Title RequirementsSee which tricks are necessary for each title. Know that these titles must be earned in order (e.g. you need the Novice title to earn the Intermediate title). Check out the AKC Evaluator Guide to know exactly what you need to do to pass each test. *Ensure that your dog is registered with AKC. Mixed breeds may be registered as well.

Video Your Tricks for SubmissionAll you need is a smartphone! Make sure that you and your dog can be easily seen and that you are following the requirements set by AKC (e.g. whether you can use lures, food or toy rewards). Once your video is perfected, upload it onto YouTube.
Choose Your EvaluatorSeveral of our instructors are CGC/Trick Dog Evaluators. They are all awesome! Click on their photos below to learn more about them and then choose who you want to evaluate your trick video.
Fill Out the Form and Submit PaymentQuickly provide your contact information, your dog's AKC registration number and registered name and then submit payment via PayPal or Stripe. Each evaluation costs $25.00.
Receive Feedback from the EvaluatorOnce the evaluator has completed their review, they will let you know if you and your dog have passed. The typical turnaround time is 5-business days, if not sooner. You will also receive a completed Video Verification form, which you will need to forward along to the AKC.
Apply for Your Title from the AKCThe final step is to submit your paperwork and fees to the AKC! This will include the completed Video Verification form, the Trick Dog Application and Tricks Checklist. Once that is all processed...congratulations, your dog is officially an AKC Trick Dog!
