In the Performer level, there are no tricks specified. The handler/dog will perform a total of 10 previously learned or new tricks from the Novice, Intermediate and Advanced titles. The AKC Trick Dog Performer routine must have at least 2 Intermediate and 2 Advanced Tricks. The routine may have a story (e.g., “This is Princess. Princess loves to go to school. When she goes to school she 1) takes a nap, 2) gets a book, 3) goes outside and plays ball,” etc. A helper may be used to read/narrate the story as a way of cuing the handler for the tricks, or the handler may tell the story as the routine proceeds.
