Rules:


What are Trick Dog Masters Titles?

Masters titles are optional titles and are not required in your pathway toward earning your standard titles. You can earn your NTD, ITD, ATD, ETD, and Champion titles without ever earning your Masters titles.

Masters titles are additional honors to show further mastery of each level (the Novice Masters title shows mastery of Novice tricks). Each Masters title must be earned consecutively, and each Masters title may be earned only after earning the corresponding standard title.

All of the same rules apply to Masters titles as to the standard titles, except that there are more tricks, and the tricks must be of only that level. A Novice Masters title must show 30 Novice tricks, and no intermediate or higher tricks.
