Beat the Clock


Pay with Instructor Credits:  3 credits for PDF certificate.

There are 3 options for this title. Perform 12 tricks in either 24, 48, or 60 seconds to beat the clock. Rules below.




RULES: 12 tricks in 24, or 48, or 60 seconds


Your dog does 12 tricks within the time limit. Because some dogs are naturally faster than others, you have the option of 3 different time limits: 24 seconds, 48 seconds, or 60 seconds. Pick the one that best suits your dog. There are no criteria for difficulty or trick description.  You can make up your own tricks. There are no prerequisites.

Whether you chose to do the 12 tricks in 24, 48, or 60 seconds, you will all get the same title and certificate (although the certificate will note which time period you did). If you get your certificate with 60 seconds, and later do it in 48 seconds evaluated by the same CTDI, we will upgrade your title for free.

  • Tricks do not have to be performed on the same day. Your evaluator may sign of on each one individually.
  • You may submit video of your trick for evaluation.
