Thor’s NTD Filming

I decided to start the journey to earning a Champion Trick Dog Title by starting where we left off- at the Novice Title. Thor earned his NTD on July 25th 2013. He earned it on his last day of his first ‘Tricks Dog class’ at Club Doggie ( with Champion Trick Dog Instructor Kama R. I was a little overwhelmed with managing Thor, treats, clicker, ect and only had bits and pieces of it recorded.

The day we received Thor's certificate and collar charm.

Later I did record the video “Thor the French Bulldog’s 15 dog Tricks” but I always planned on making a video of his title and this time filming it correctly! He was able to do each of the tricks and I think he enjoyed showing off for the camera but a few things popped up that we will definitely need to work on. Namely we need to get better work ethic, I need to stop cheating to help him succeed, distance, and I really need to get more solid hand signal/ verbal cues since at multiple points he seemed to get a bit confused on which trick I was asking him to do.

The tricks Thor did to earn his NTD are: sit, down, come, stay, doggy push ups, food refusal/ leave it, hand signals (3 tricks), jump over a bar, paws up on a object, roll out a carpet (we used a yoga mat), shake hands, speak/ bark on cue, spin circles, take a bow, and treibbal (pushing a ball). I threw in a sit pretty/beg since it is one of his favorite tricks and he does it with so much enthusiasm.
