Do you want to show off all the tricks your dog can do? Let's face it, being able to pull off these tricks is a sign you're the best pup parent around. And with the Dog Trick Challenge, you can help your pup reach their full potential by proving their paw-print worth.

Put your pup's skills to the test! 

It's time to test your pooch's ability to learn and show off their new tricks. All you have to do is sign up to the academy, follow our daily video tutorials or pick a trick from our ever-growing trick list, let your pup show off their new skills, and then post a video of them in action! You can even earn your Trick Titles with us and since Jenny is a Certified Trick Instructor with Do More With Your Dog, we can also assess your tricks for your Title submissions too!

Tricks from Novice to Champion

  • Novice: Paw, spin, nose touch, feet up, hoop jump, fetch, crawl and more

  • Intermediate: Leg weaves, roll over, sit pretty, shake hands, close doors, go fly and more

  • Advanced: Put toys away, walk backwards, open a door, play dead, say your prayers and more

  • Expert: Orbit, handstand, basketball, ring toss, stacking cups, trust fall, reverse leg weaves and more

  • Champion: Put it all together!

We'll show you how to build up to the Champion level tricks step by step with daily video tutorials starting with the Novice foundations!

We show every trick with a dog who doesn't know it yet, so you can see how to troubleshoot along the way!

With over 70 trick video tutorials, there's a trick to suit all ages and abilities

Customer Feedback

Review by A Barnes


The on-line courses are absolutely brilliant. They are calm and focussed unlike other on-line dog trainers who seem to jump around manically.


Everything is positive and reward based. Daily feedback is provided and Jenny & Mike are always on hand to answer any query.I can’t praise them highly enough. If you want a happy, secure pup you can’t spend money in a better way.

Review by C Croft


We cannot thank Jenny and Mike enough. Before the course started we were struggling to really make any progress or to even have any confidence. With our previous dogs, we had been to regular puppy school. We of course learned a few things but nothing dramatic. Not so with this programme.


It was transformative for me and my family. The video's make it possible to revisit the lessons endlessly, the lectures helped us learn things we needed to know, the feedback sessions picked up small mistakes we did not know had such a big impact on behaviour. In short, an invaluable four weeks. Thank you so much.

Review by C Dueck


 I highly recommend using these courses to everyone, especially those who lead busy lives as the convenience, and QUALITY of these courses is incredible.


Jenny and Mike are clearly very passionate about dogs, and training and even with all the people on these courses, they still remember the names of people and their dogs, and the struggles their facing - which to be honest I did not expect from an online course, but they clearly care about every single person they’re teaching.


I loved the courses so much, I’ve already purchased another and I plan on doing every course they offer. If I could give Adolescent Dogs more than five stars, I would. Thanks so much, Jenny and Mike!

Review by K Gallagher


Thank you so much to Adolescent Dogs. We took on a rescue dog a couple of months ago, very frightened of people and most things!


We started with the VIP CLUB The videos are excellent and easy to follow, clear and concise. The lecture videos are very informative and again clear and concise. You can follow the training at your own pace, post videos and ask advice if you're having a problem.


I have never had such a reactive and also intelligent dog before and it has been a lot of fun learning together and knowing that I have the knowledge now to help her through her problems. I literally wouldn't have been able to cope with this dog if I hadn't had this help as although I have had rescue dogs before, I needed a whole new skill set to cope with Bella. She's doing really well now

Review by C Jebbett


We took part in the online training, I have a rescue dog and I’m a first time dog owner. We attended dog training sessions, bought expensive online dog games, hired a dog trainer and had a number of people giving me their conflicting opinions, resulting in us floundering and the dog feeling unsupported!


This last month with adolescent dog training has been enlightening, so much training videos that I can access forever, the videos highlight what could go wrong and how to manage those scenarios, they are professionally made and informative.


Jenny and Mike have given incredible amount of feedback when we have shared videos, I can not give them enough praise.  I feel incredibly grateful for all they have provided, they are clearly driven not by money but of love for dogs and their well-being. If I could have given 10 stars I would have done.
