DID YOU KNOW you can earn official Trick Titles with your dog?
Now you can have fun teaching tricks to your dog, and then you get to show them off to earn your titles!
Do More With Your Dog (DMWYD) is a recognized sanctioning body for the sport of Dog Tricks, and they issue official Trick Dog Titles for dogs who can perform a variety of dog tricks!
Then you can also earn the Trick Dog Champion and Trick Dog Grand Champion titles!
There are also Masters level titles and fun Specialty titles to earn too!
HOW DO I EARN TRICK TITLES?
In order to earn your Trick Titles, first you need to teach your dog some fun tricks!
Different tricks are considered different levels of difficulty and so will apply to certain titles. Check the tricks section below for more information on which tricks to work on!
Then you need to have a Certified Trick Dog Instructor (CTDI) witness those tricks.
Both DogWorks Trick instructors, Dove and Julia, are Certified Trick Dog Instructors, and can witness your tricks for you to earn titles!
Once one of us has witnessed and approved your tricks, (see Witnessing section below) and you have shown enough tricks to earn the title, you can submit the title application to earn your title!
You will get a Title Certificate and can also receive a Ribbon and other goodies!

As Certified Trick Dog Instructors, Julia and Dove can witness your tricks for your trick titles!
We can witness your tricks virtually via video!
