    If anyone is interested in working on the Novice Trick Dog title, let me know. It is being done via video verification in a FB group that starts on the 15th.

    hmmm... I think Moo has enough random things in his repertoire... I'll need to refresh my memory on some of the tricks and see what he'd tick of the list!

    @Panama I think we might have Ezri be able to do it. I’ll check with the wife for it

    I'm doing video Trick Dog evaluations. PM me if you want me to test you.

    I request an optional $10 donation to my herding club. We had three events cancelled this spring and had front loaded expenses, so we're hurting.

    With funds going to your club, I would recommend members here go through you.
    The lady doing the one I was trying to help has several already signed up...so PLEASE, any of you interested, go through Obbanner.

    Diva & I loved and had so much fun doing the Novice.

    I printed the list and Moose and I are in! Rubie might be one or two shy of her intermediate, too. arg.

    They have to be done in consecutive order. You'll need Novice before doing Intermediate.

    Thank you, @Panama! I appreciate your recognition of how it costs money to put on trials and matches and your support.

    Clubs need all the help they can get or we could lost a lot of them. Hopefully things will turn around before long.

    So going through the lists, we are all over the place in trucks Ezri knows. But it will give us something to formalize.

    If you're considering doing a Trick Dog evaluation, please read the Evaluator's Guide. It has information that can help you succeed as well as specifies what has to be done. For instance, the guide states you can use food and lures in Novice.

    http://images.akc.org/pdf/trick_eval_guide.pdf

    Each trick for the Novice and Intermediate levels must be done twice. That's not on the Trick Dog Checklist for those levels, but it is a rule.

    Congratulations! :thumbsup: You and Moose did great! :wow:

    I love this screencap of you and Moose. At the end of a trick, he turned and stared right at the camera as if to take a bow. :)

    YAY... Diva got her TKN Certificate today! Only 2 more tricks to master before she qualifies for her Intermediate.

    Side Note: Seems certificates are taking 3-4 wks to receive Certificates.

    Thank you! Taking forever to get their certificates. I submitted paperwork for Diva's Intermediate 3 wks ago, and it's still not even recorded. And we start Advanced tomorrow.
