Advanced Trick Dog Titles

Advanced Trick Dog title builds upon what your dog learned on the Novice level.

That’s why in order to be eligible for Advanced title you need to have Novice title for that Talent Track. 

For example, if you would like to work on Advanced Thinker Trick Dog title, you need to get Novice Thinker Trick Dog title first.

 

The feature of the Advanced skills is that they are 2 or 3 step tricks, from the trick training perspective or require your dog to have an advanced level of body awareness and control.

 

All of the movements are natural for dogs but will require advanced coordination and combining several skills. For example, this could be walking backwards in a circle or walking sideways in coordination with you etc.  That’s why in order to be ready to learn the advanced level skills, the dog needs to learn the Novice level skills for the same Talent track.

Advanced Trick Dog title requirements:

Part 1: Perform any 10 tricks or behaviours from the Advanced list
