TDG = Trick Dog Guru

The third level to be achieved from the single dog category – you must have gained UD & TDN first.

10 needed – single dog
  • Go Hide
  • Play Dead
  • Switch Off The Lights
  • Skateboard Pooch
  • The CanCan (chorus kicks)
  • Distance Work (3 behaviours of your choice 10 feet away from you)

  •  Each behaviour must be demonstrated three times.
  •  The behaviour should be on cue – not lured.  Your cue may be visual (hand signal or object) or verbal.
  • A video demonstrating the final behaviour, on cue, must be uploaded to YouTube for assessment (no more than 7 mins & with the trick titles inserted).
  • All behaviours for assessment should be edited into one video with the handler visible.  The behaviours do not have to be performed on the same day.
  • Behaviours must be consistent in quality.
  • A minimum 3 second pause is required for any behaviour with a pause in the trick: example (but not limited to) Play Dead
  • Behaviours may be re-cued if necessary, but errors must be dealt with to support your learner’s needs.
  • Any behaviour that is not adequately demonstrated may need to be repeated.  This is at the discretion of the assessor.
  • All behaviours must be trained force-free.
  • €25 per submission
