We’re kicking off a fun new dog training challenge to inspire you to work hard and train your dog this summer. We know it can be tempting to kick back and relax. But just because school is out for the human kiddos doesn’t mean it’s out for your dog!
Here’s how this works: participate in classes and activities to earn stars. The more stars you earn, the more goodies you’ll receive!
This challenge runs from June 1st through August 31st. If you’ve already done cool stuff with us this month, don’t panic – we’re going to award stars retroactively!
How to Earn Stars
In a calendar week (Sunday through Saturday):
- 1 star for the first class you attend, 2 stars for the second class, 3 stars for the third class, 4 stars for the fourth class, 5 stars for the fifth class… & 1 star for posting about the challenge on social media & tagging us! (@xbonesdog on Facebook & Instagram)
- 2 stars for attending any Workshop.
- 1 star for passing any AKC test:
STAR Puppy, Canine Good Citizen, Community Canine (CGCA), CGC Urban (CGC), and each level of AKC Trick Dog!
- 1 bonus star for taking an advanced level class for the first time:
Recall Mastery, Power Walking, CGC Prep, Performance Fundamentals, Agility Skill Building, Agility Competition Prep, Trick Skill Building.
(You get a star for attending the class AND an extra star for taking something new for the first time!)
- 1 star for earning an agility title in any organization.
(Had to throw in a little something for my sport dog peeps!)
Here’s what you and your dog can earn!
- 5 stars = poop bag roll
- 10 stars = clicker
