AKC Trick Dog Program
The American Kennel Club (AKC) introduced a Trick titling program in May of 2017. AKC Trick Dog titles are official AKC titles listed on the dog’s title record. AKC offers four levels of Trick titles: Novice Trick Dog (TKN), Intermediate Trick Dog (TKI), Advanced Trick Dog (TKA) and Trick Dog Performer (TKP). Dogs must have an AKC, PAL, or AKC Canine Partners number to earn a title.
Several times a year, OTCPBC will offer a Trick Dogs Test.
The next Tricks Dog Test will be held on September 23.
