It's Time to Get Tricky!

Training tricks is a great way for you to become a better trainer and your dog to become a better learner. Plus, it’s just plain fun!

This self-study class covers all the tricks you’ll need to earn your AKC Novice Tricks title. Detailed demonstration videos and lectures make training fun and easy. Most people take about a month to work through all the video exercises.  At the end, if you’re able to demonstrate 10 of the required tricks (via video), you’ll earn your official AKC Trick Dog Novice title! We’ll provide a gorgeous ribbon and your test verification paperwork to turn into the AKC for your official title. 

You’ll have 90 days from the date of enrollment to send in your video demonstrating the tricks you’ve trained.  

  • Enrollment provides access to the full online course
  • Includes video submission for one dog
  • Class Fee – $66
  • Note: this self-study class does not include coaching or feedback. Virtual private lessons are available, if needed. 

PLEASE NOTE: You will have separate logins for our Online Learning platform and our In-Facility Programs.
