Canine Freestyle Titling Opportunities…

Canine Freestyle Titles:  Pam’s Dog Academy

Titles will be awarded to dogs after completion of three legs in each level of a particular division. Each participant must start in level 1, even if the team can already perform at level 4. Multiple video routines can be entered at the same time in order to earn a title faster. However, they must be videos that were filmed at different times or on different days.  When submitting multiple videos to earn titles faster, each video will need an entry form as well as a entry fee.

To enter & submit video titles go to  Click on the title you are interested in and you will find all the rules and entry forms.  We look forward to watching you and your dog perform.

Pam’s Dog Academy Offers Video Titling Opportunities

Disc Flare is just one of the many different types of video titles you can earn with your dog through Pam’s Dog Academy.

The rules:
Disc Flare Division
A handler can use up to 10 discs

All levels will have up to 5 minutes to throw as many different disc throws according to the level at which the team is entered. The handler can use any type of disc flare he/she would want to use.

Positive Bond between Human and Dog – It is obvious to the viewer that both dog and human are joyfully participating of their own free will. At NO time during the the minute does the human team member look confrontational, annoyed or demanding towards their team member. Any punishment, force or intimidation will result in a NQ.

Accuracy – Dogs must catch a majority of the throws.

Overall Performance – Disc creativity, variety of throws, the use of innovative throws and wow factor will be taken into account.

* Any throw done with the right hand can also be done with the left hand and will count as a different throw.

* Example: Behind the back throw right, then behind the back throw left will count as two throws. Backhand throw with the right, then backhand throw with the left will count as two throws. That is already four throws…

Beginner: 4 different throws
Novice: 8 different throws
Intermediate: 16 different throws
Excellent: 20 different throws
Champion: 30 different throws

Each dog/handler team must complete each level before moving onto the next level. If you and your dog are able to compete at the Champion level, then you can simply pay for Beginner, Novice, Intermediate, Excellent and Champion at one time and submit one video for all levels.

Adding Criteria: Stay – Online Class

This is a video for my online Rock Solid Stay Class. Most of the videos I upload for my online classes are unlisted. But I thought I would post this one…

If you have ever thought about taking an online class, now is the time. I have decided to keep my prices really low! Not because they are not worth the money but because I think dog training should be affordable. Most online classes are expensive and I don’t think they are worth the money. However, you will get a lot of bang for your buck with my classes! Plus, I give a lot of personal help that many classes don’t have.

I offer online classes in Clicker Training Basics, Canine Freestyle (4 sessions), Play-N-Train Recalls, Loose Leash Walking Exercises, One on One Coaching and Rock Solid Stays.

My online classes teach you how to train your dogs while having a great time! It is a win win! Fun and Innovative Games that focus on training your dog to reliably do behaviors!

Have a great day with your dog, today and everyday!
