PWD Achievements

Trick Dog Evaluations

Bring your Portuguese Water Dog to participate not only in the K9 gift exchange, but to participate in Trick Dog evaluation and earn a title! Trick Dog evaluations will be done by Kelly Liedtke. You will need to bring your own props for the Trick Dog evaluations.

Cost: $20.00 per dog
Limit: 2 dogs per household

Show off your PWD’s tricks and earn a Trick Dog title! There are five AKC Trick Titles you and your PWD can earn. For those just starting out, for the AKC Novice Trick Dog title, your dog performs 10 skills from the Novice list. If your dog has a Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certificate or title on record at AKC, it can do 5 Novice tricks (CGC + 5) to earn the Novice title. Dogs that have completed the Novice title may also test for advanced titles. See more title information on the AKC site.

To participate in the Tricks Title evaluation and receive your title:

  1. Complete the event registration (see button below)
  2. Print and complete the AKC Trick Dog Title Application, and the Tricks Checklist for your testing level.
  3. Bring your AKC Title Application and Tricks Check List with you to the Holiday Party, along with check or cash for $20 per dog to pay the evaluator.
  4. If your dog successfully completes the evaluation, you will then submit the your paperwork and a $25 application fee to AKC to record and issue the title. Information on this process is detailed on your AKC Trick Dog Title Application.
