On 1 st January 2020 a new competition will be available to members of the Canine Association, this is Trick Titles Test. The first test is the Starter test and in this there are 15 tricks to choose from, the handler picks 6 tricks and these are the ones to be used in the test.
The great thing is that in the ring there is a table/chair on which the handler can place six pieces of food in a closed container and if they wish can go to the treat table take a treat out and reward their dog a successful trick. For those who prefer to use a toy as a reward then that is also allowed but it must be a quiet toy.
There are classes at our club to introduce you to this innovative sport make sure you ask your instructor about them. All the tricks are performed off lead, though many can be trained on lead, so no need to wait – just jump in and enjoy yourselves.
