AKC Farm Dog Test

The AKC Farm Dog Test is open to all breeds of dogs, who are at least 9 months old and are registered with the AKC (including mixed breeds with an AKC Canine Partners number). This test involves your dog performing a series of 12 exercises that are typical for a farm environment such as being in close proximity to livestock (who are always penned to avoid any altercations); jumping and staying on hay/straw bales; walking on unusual terrain; and jumping over logs. There is no herding involved. Instead, the goal is to assess his or her aptitude as a working farm dog by exhibiting self-control, confidence and trust with you. In order to earn the title, the dog must qualify under two different judges.

OTC will be holding its first farm dog test on June 23!
