Trick Dog title!

Do More With Your Dog!® is the only official sanctioning and organizing body for the sport of Dog Tricks.

Dog trainers tend to train the hardest when working toward a goal—it keeps them motivated, and focused. A Trick Dog title can motivate you by giving you a goal. The Trick Dog title allows you to earn your title on your own time, in front of a witness.

Teaching tricks establishes a pattern of learning, teaches skills and focus, is a positive method of training, and promotes a bond between canine and human.

What Does a Trick Dog Title Mean?

Why should we care about gold-embossed certificate? Or about a set of initials at the end of our dog’s name? Why should we take lessons, and invest time, and pay money for something worth no money in return?

We do it because those initials at the end of his name serve as a tribute to the dog that bears them. They stand as a testament to his intelligence, enthusiasm, and willing nature. They say that this dog was a good dog; a greatly loved dog; and a dog who loved greatly in return. This was a dog who put his self interest aside to work hard at tricks that were important to you, regardless of how bizarre your requests may have seemed.

A trick dog title is also a reflection on your skill as a trainer and a testament to your commitment to your relationship. It says that your dog was important enough in your life to receive your time and energy and enthusiastic praise, even at the end of a long day. You loved your dog enough to engage him, challenge him, bond with him, and help him achieve a common goal. A trick dog title shows that you believed in your dog even when he failed; that you gave him another chance even when nobody else would; and that in the end, your faith in him was justified.

You indeed, did more with your dog.

And after the last beat of his heart, the trick dog title will remain; an enduring memorial; an honor to a deserving friend.
