We are pleased to announce the 2022 AKC Trick Dog National Competition It’s Virtual!!
We are pleased to announce the AKC Trick Dog National Competition for 2022.
All AKC Trick Dogs who have earned the Elite Performer title by the entry opening date (July 1, 2022, 5:00 pm, EST) can enter this exciting annual event for trick dogs. The title must have been awarded by AKC before entering the competition.
Because the competition is virtual (i.e., the judging will be done via video), trick dogs everywhere can participate.
How it works: Submit a video to AKC of your dog’s trick dog routine. The routine must be no longer than 6 minutes and may include props and music. The 6 minutes includes the time for moving props during the routine and performing the tricks. If you choose to give a speech at the beginning of your routine, this is counted in the 6 minutes.
You may use a new video, or a video previously submitted to AKC for review to earn your title. Videos that were entered in previous Virtual Tricks competitions may not be submitted again.
As is the case with all Elite Performer routines, there must be a theme or story. For this virtual competition, an audience is not required.
If you have more than one great routine, you may submit up to two videos (per dog) to the competition.
When: To enter, submit your video between July 1 and September 1, 2022.  Three judges will judge the submissions and the winner will be announced in October 2022.
The winner and two semi-finalists of the 2022 AKC Trick Dog Competition will receive trophies. The winners will be featured in AKC media, and their videos will be on the AKC Trick Dog web page.
There will also be breed prizes and qualifying rosettes.
The entry form will be available June 1, 2022.
