HOW OUR TRICK STARS AWARDS WORK..

The first step is to teach your dog some tricks, you can do this at home by watching videos or getting a trick training book or you can go to a trainer to learn how to teach your dog tricks. Contact us if you would like more information about our private trick training sessions.

The next step is to check out the list of tricks for the first level, which is the Novelty Trick Star award. When you can perform 8 of the tricks on the novelty trick list you are ready to apply for your first award.

When applying for your award you can choose to receive your certificate with a rosette, certificate only or rosette only, the choice is yours.

Once you have received your Novelty Trick Star award you can then apply for your Super Trick Star award and then your Mega Trick Star award. 

Bonus awards when available can be applied for at any time

When recording your video be sure to have both dog and handler fully in the frame at all times. Tricks can be performed and recorded separately and then clips edited together for your application video. Please do not add music to your Trick Star awards videos as it can make it difficult to hear your verbal cues clearly. Bonus awards may require music.

Each level has its own list of tricks for you to choose from.

Novelty Trick Star - You need to be able to perform 8 of the tricks on the list.

Super Trick Star - You need to be able to perform 8 of the tricks on the list.
