Advanced Talent Show Dog Title

The Advanced Talent Show Dog title builds on what you learned in the Novice title. 

You are now ready to perform more complex tricks, expand the range of the tricks and props you are using and starting to really perform in front of the audience (real-life or virtual).

Dogs who obtained at least one of the Talent Show Dog titles are also eligible to take part in real dog talent shows, competitions and Dog Talent show displays at large events, and perhaps even as a part of the team in CRUFTS. If you would be interested to take part with your dog, join our Facebook group and we will keep you informed about the upcoming opportunities. 

Most importantly, keep having fun!

Eligibility: You need to receive the Novice Talent Show Dog title to be able to submit for the Advanced Talent Show title.

Advanced Talent Show Dog title requirements:

Part 1:  Five sequences of 2 Advanced level tricks in each of the sequences

Each of the sequences needs to include 2 Advanced level tricks from any of the talent pathways (Thinker, Performer, Athlete, Helper). Instead of the suggested tricks, you can use your own tricks, but they need to be on the same level of complexity or higher. If in any doubt please contact us first. 

You can combine tricks from different talent pathways in the same sequence. You can re-use the tricks from your Thinker, Performer, Athlete or Helper titles submissions but they need to be in a different environment.

 

You can’t use exactly the same trick more than once in Part 1, but it is OK if it is performed in a different way. For example, you can use jumping through a hoop and jumping through the handler’s arms. Though both of the tricks involve jumping through a circle, they are different tricks as each requires some specific training.

 

The transition from one trick to another in the sequence should be fluid and without undue delay or hesitation.

Please only give food or another reward after the completion of the sequence.

Part 2: Perform 5 tricks with props 

Choose any Advanced or Novice level tricks from any of the talent pathways or your own. 

If using your own tricks please make sure they are on the Advanced or Novice level of difficulty or above. If in any doubt please contact us first. Please do not re-use the tricks submitted for your Novice Dog Talent Show title- we want you to learn and to be able to perform a wider range of tricks.

 

For props, you can use any household objects, tools, musical instruments, clothes, sports equipment, recycled or re-purposed objects etc. Please do not use dog agility or obedience equipment, but you can use the handler and where appropriate and fully safe the members of your audience.

You can re-use the props. 

Part 3: Perform 2 sequences of 5 different tricks each. One of the tricks in each sequence needs to include a prop

Choose any Advanced or Novice level tricks from any of the talent pathways or your own. If using your own tricks please make sure they are on the Advanced or Novice level of difficulty or above. If in any doubt please contact us first. Please use different tricks from your Novice Dog Talent Show title submission.

 

Only one trick in each sequence needs to include a prop. You can have a prop for other tricks in the same sequence or they can be performed without a prop. You can re-use the props, but please do not repeat the exactly the same tricks as in Part 2 of this submission.

 

The transition from one trick to another in the sequence should be fluid and without undue delay or hesitation.

You do not need to perform the sequences one straight after the other. Each can be recorded separately and does not need to be recorded on the same day or even the same place.

Once you record the separate video clips, ideally please put them together into one video for submission (preferred option). If you are struggling to make the combined video please check other submission options here. If you have any questions please message us and we will be able to help.
