This is Doug, and he is a Champion Trick Dog! From now on his official name is Douglas Kellum, CHTD. Yep, he gets to have fancy letters after his name, just like the fancy obedience dogs, and the show dogs, and all the dogs that strive for excellence in their field. I think Doug deserves it, after all, he has more skills than a fully trained Service Dog, He has dabbled and succeeded in many more disciplines including scent work, agility, treibbal, and is honing his acting skills for the starring role in my heart. The sport of dog tricks recognizes you and your dog for the awesome things you do together, no matter what sport or tricks you might be into. Doug’s name can now be found on a registry listing all the Novice, Intermediate, Advanced, Expert, and Champion trick dogs. I’m proud to say that Doug is in the company of just 3 other Champion Boxers! To find his name, scroll down past the huge list of Australian Shepherd and wade through the solid page of Border Collies, because the list is alphabetical.
