    Tips for  Intermediate or higher level teams: Check their pre-req's

    We have noticed that it really helps the titling process to be strict about the pre-reqs in the Spark groups. Check the title holders list... If they aren't on there, send them a message asking for a picture of their title and giving them a link to your Novice Spark group. Here is a sample message you can send:

    Hi XXXX, I see that you requested to join the Intermediate Trick Dog Class. There is a pre-req of the the Novice Trick Dog Title. I looked through the list and did not see you; this may be because your name is displayed differently. If you could send me a picture of your trick dog title I can admit you to the class. If you do not have the novice title yet, you may join my novice class at... https://www.facebook.com/groups/CloudK9SparkTeam2/

    Coach: Liz Morris, CTDI

    • Everyone is welcome to join our team 😀with all breeds large and small.
    • Old dogs? new tricks? no problem, puppies and older dogs are all welcome, come and join the fun! 
    • Empower your dog and enrich his/her world with new tricks at a pace that suits you!

    Join Now:

     

  • In Facebook Newsfeed look in the left sidebar and choose"Groups." Next, look in the upper left corner for the button called "Create Group".

     

  • Once you've created the group, click the button called "...More" and then choose  "edit group settings".

     

    Many of the options here will be your personal preference, but below are a few options we suggest you choose: 

    • Description:SESSION STARTS JANUARY 1-- Ignite your passion for dog tricks! Join us for 4 weeks as we coach you through learning 15 new dog tricks. You can do it! Your totally excited coach is XXXX (CTDI). ***All the important info is in the post pinned to the top of the page***
    • Location: Best to leave blank, as you want students from all over
    • Tags: Dog Tricks, Dog Training, Clicker Training, etc.
    • Linked Pages: Do More With Your Dog!, and possibly your other Spark groups
    • Web Address: Something like BobsNTDSparkTeam
    • Privacy: Public
    • Posting Permissions: Anyone in the group
    • Post Approval: unchecked
  • Add Kyra Sundance as a member to your group. Make her a group Admin. Access this setting by going to "Members" in the left sidebar.

  • Add a cover image to your group. You may use this one or customize your own with your team name and photo.

    The Spark Team logo is available in our Public Dropbox, here:

    http://www.domorewithyourdog.com/trickdog/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=352&Itemid=322

  • Dog Tricks Spark Teams may wish to use this 1-page title application form. It is a PDF form, so you can download it and enter in your name and your Spark group name, and possibly all the tricks you will teach (or the student can handwrite in the tricks). This way the student will remember your name when it is time for them to submit their app online.

    Download the customizable Spark title app

  • Facebook groups allow you to "pin" one post. This post always remains at the top of the page. This post will have all the important info for your students. You can edit this post every week to add new links to videos.

    Note: on mobile devices there is a button at the top of the page that says "view pinned posts." People never realize to click that button, so we have to try really hard at the beginning to make sure everyone knows to read that pinned post. This has been our single biggest challenge.

    We find it is best to not post links to all of your instrcutional videos in the first week. Keep your students focused by just showing them a few tricks/exercises each week.

    3. SHOW OFF YOUR TRICKS
    Upload your videos to this group.  
    
    4. TEACH 15 TRICKS – EARN YOUR "NOVICE TRICK DOG" TITLE
    • Once you've demonstrated 15 tricks for any witness, submit your checklist here:
       http://shop.domorewithyourdog.com/Dog_Tricks_Title_p/title.htm
    • Your names will be added to the official registry:
       http://www.domorewithyourdog.com/trickdog/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=48&Itemid=149
    • You will receive a certificate and ribbon in the mail. 
    • Your dog's name will  be officially designated with the NTD suffix. 
    • Bask in your awesomeness... you and your dog rock!

    ----------------------------------------------
    HOW WELL DOES MY DOG HAVE TO PERFORM THE TRICK?
    ----------------------------------------------
    Leashes: 
    Novice tricks may be done on-leash to prevent the dog from running off. The leash shall not be used to pull the dog into the desired behavior. 
    
    Treats: 
    Treats (and/or toys) may be used as a reward after the trick is finished. Treats may be used as a lure, but only in the following amounts: no more than 50% of the tricks for the Novice title can employ a lure.
    
    Physical Manipulation: 
    Handler may not physically manipulate the dog to get him to do a trick. Petting the dog at any time is fine. Lightly tapping the dog to regain his attention is fine.
    
    Service Dogs / Disabled Dogs / Very Senior Dogs:
    These dogs and their handlers may need to alter the trick to work within their unique needs. This is fine. 
    
    Extra Credit Trick: 
    One additional trick of comparable difficulty may be used to count as a Novice or Intermediate trick.
