Farm Dog : Prepare for your AKC testing
In 2016 the AKC announced a new program called the Farm Dog Certified test. This test provides a series of 12 exercises that a dog may encounter in a farm environment which are designed to demonstrate a dog's trainability, self-control, confidence and trust when working with their handler.

​Our 3-week Farm Dog training course will prepare you
for certification testing by ​teaching your dog 
self control while around livestock and exposing them
to a variety of situations in a farm environment.

Some of the tasks include farm environment loose
leash walk patterns, supervised separation, gate
pass throughs, stimulus reactions, livestock
interaction and walking over unusual surfaces.

​This certification has been touted as A Canine Good
Citizen test on a farm. For details of the actual tasks
required for testing see the AKC website.
