Tricks Title Testing

From the 1920’s and 1940’s when trick dogs such as Rin Tin Tin and Lassie won peoples’ hearts, trick dog training has become one of the most exciting new areas in dog training today.
AKC Trick Dog titles are official AKC titles listed on the dog’s title record. Dogs must have an AKC, PAL, or AKC Canine Partners number to earn a title.
