Stunt Dog Competition Rules


Official Rule book

Rules and diagrams are available in the official Stunt Dog Competition Rules Handbook.


Tricks are meant to inspire and entertain audiences, and we want to give you the skills and the forum to do so successfully. These rules are meant to give you a wonderful, positive experience performing your tricks in the ring. By following this system you can look confident and cool, and not embarrassed or silly. It is with this goal, that the Stunt Dog ring sport was structured. Learn more about Stunt Dog competition, or become one of our first Stunt Dog judges, by attending an "Intro to Stunt Dog Competition" workshop.

Foundation Levels

The first four levels of the Stunt Dog title are called the Foundation levels. The structure stays the same throughout the foundation levels; only adding or removing a few elements, or changing their difficulty. By the time you get to the Champion level, you will feel comfortable and confident in the ring, and have a successful structure which you may wish to use as a basis for your Champion routine.
