Farm Dog Certification

Is your dog a farm dog wanna-be?  Find out by going through the AKC Farm Dog Certification test.


Open to all breeds, including mixed breeds, this test involves your dog performing a series of 12 exercises that are typical for a farm environment such as being around livestock, and farm equipment, walking over strange terrain and climbing on hay bales.  No herding is involved.  Instead, the goal is to assess his aptitude as a working farm dog by exhibiting self-control, confidence, and trust in you or his handler.  Dogs must pass two tests under two different judges.


There will be 50 runs available each day.  $40 PER RUN.  Pre-registration is recommended.  You may enter at with payment available through PayPal.  Or you can mail your entry to the test secretary:
