AKC Novice Tricks Class

COURSE OVERVIEW
Wow your friends with awesome tricks that you and your dog learn together in our Novice Tricks class! Now, you and your dog can train together as you strive toward a goal— a trick dog title!

This versatile title allows you to pick and choose tricks based upon your mutual strengths. To earn the AKC Novice Trick Dog (TKN) title, your dog will perform 10 skills from the Novice list. If your dog has a Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certificate or title on record, they can do 5 novice tricks (CGC +5) to earn the novice title.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Please be sure each week to bring poop bags, a soft mat or rug, long-lasting chews or stuffed Kongs and plenty of small, soft treats for your dog.
