Tricks!!!

Postby spiritdogs » Wed Jun 29, 2011 3:19 am

I haven't posted in a while here, but thought that bragging on my girls was worth coming out of the lurking closet. I'm proud to say that Sioux has earned her Intermediate Trick Dog Title (at age 10+) and Sequoyah has earned the Advanced Trick Dog Title. That enabled me to acquire the CTDI. The program is through Kyra Sundance's "Do More With Your Dog" and, while I would love to have thought up the idea myself, I really do thank her for attempting to elevate the status of dogs that do tricks! After all, others may scoff, but it's all just about teaching complex behaviors, just as we would with service dogs, or any other discipline. Mostly though, this is just another reason to love my dogs, especially Sioux, who has never, ever, ever once failed me in anything I've asked of her.

Anne, that is so great, congratulations! What's involved in earning those titles?

IMO teaching tricks is awesome. Teaching anything really, to keep a dog mentally engaged by discovering new things and problem solving.
