AKC Tricks

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 five levels of Trick titles: Novice Trick Dog (TKN), Intermediate Trick Dog (TKI), Advanced Trick Dog (TKA), Trick Dog Performer (TKP) and Trick Dog Performer Elite (TKE). Dogs must have an AKC, PAL, or AKC Canine Partners number prior to doing a TRICKS TEST to earn a title.
Mixed breed and rescue dogs are welcome at this event. The AKC issues registration numbers to all dogs, regardless of breed heritage or history, so they may compete in performance events.

  • Each Tricks Level has an AKC Checklist. Some of the listed tricks may be selected for use at different levels. However, they may not be repeated. Please familiarize yourself with the tricks that may be used at each level. If you have passed a level or levels and do not remember the tricks you used in the tests for your titles, you may contact AKC to get the list of tricks used for your existing Tricks titles.
