Trick Dog & CGC Testing at the Terv Trial!


Any dog can earn one of the new AKC trick dog titles. If your dog can do agility, it can earn a trick dog title. 

Patty Wiedeman, an AKC trick dog evaluator, will be at the Terv trial each day from 1-4 p.m. (or beginning when the 4-8-12” class ends) to evaluate dogs from Novice through Advanced. The fee is $10 per dog, per test level, with $5 going to Tervuren Rescue. 



You can sign-up in advance or at the trial for either CGC or Trick Dog or both. If you want to reserve a slot in advance. Sign-up here:

·        CGC - https://goo.gl/Gg33Vc



Each test level will cost you $10. You’ll pay the fee at the time of the test. The AKC charges $20 to record a new title for both CGC and Trick Dog. (There is a reduced fee for CGC if you don’t want it added to the dog’s title records. This is most useful for non-AKC registered dogs.)



You can sign-up and test for any or all the Trick Dog levels at the same time. Example: You want to try both the Novice and Intermediate Trick Dog tests at the same time. Simply indicate that on the sign-up sheet. If your dog earns the Novice title, you can then test for the Intermediate level. If you don’t make through Novice, you won’t be eligible to test for Intermediate and you won’t be charged.



Every performance-trained dog – agility, obedience, etc. – should easily pass the Novice Trick Dog test. Most can also easily earn the Intermediate and even the Advanced level titles, too. At each level, you choose the tricks your dog will be tested on. You’ll find the trick checklists here. http://www.akc.org/trick-Dog/trick-dog-applications/



Applications will be available at the trial. You can also fill them out in advance, which will help speed things along. You can find the applications at http://images.akc.org/pdf/GK9T80TrickDo
