AKC Trick Dog Title Evaluations

Novice, Intermediate, Advanced, Performer, Elite Performer Levels


Reserve your time slot via the calendar below!

AKC is now allowing video evaluations for Trick Dog Testing.  Please see below and email Jen@MatrixDog.com for more information!

For the Video Evaluations:

It’s $10 per evaluation which you can send via paypal (click here: https://paypal.me/JenGiacchi) or snail mail me a check (contact me for my home address for sending a check).

I will need your dog’s name, breed, AKC number, and registered owner’s name, plus your mailing address if you’d like me to mail you a title ribbon!

There are several options for getting me videos:

  1. You can facebook message the Matrix Dog business page the videos or upload them to YouTube or somewhere else and send me the links to review.  (You can also text them to me if the other stuff doesn’t work.)  You are welcome to send one video or multiple videos.
  2. We can also set up a video chat and you can do them while I’m watching live.

If you video them yourself, make sure that I can see all of you and all of your dog.

For Novice and Intermediate, tricks have to be done twice!  If you have any questions on tricks or requirements, just let me know.

Each trick videoed separately is fine, just submit all the clips at the same time (or in succession). 🙂

The evaluations are $10 per test.  You do still have to submit forms and an application (plus money) to AKC if you want the title recorded with them.

After I review the videos I will send you two forms back (trick checklist and the video evaluation certification) that you’ll send to AKC (you can email or snail mail them the forms)!

For the In-Person Evaluations –

Please bring your own treats. We will have a lot of props, but if you need specific ones please bring them along.
