Service Dogs and their handlers may need to alter the trick to work within their unique needs. This is fine.
Trick Dog Masters Titles
Masters titles are optional titles and are not required in your pathway toward earning your standard titles. Instead, they are additional honors to show further mastery of each level. Each optional title must be earned consecutively, and each Masters title may be earned only after you’ve earned the corresponding standard title. Use the same checklist form as the Novice/Int/Adv/Exp titles.
