Your email submission will then be forwarded to the appropriate Distance Evaluator who will review the video and determine if the requirements for the badge have been met. The evaluator will contact you if additional video or information is needed and will explain the reason it is needed. Once the evaluator determines that the badge requirements have been met he/she will sign the form and forward it for processing. You will receive an e-mail confirming your submission has been approved.  Please do not contact any Distance Evaluator directly and request that they do an evaluation for you.

The badge forms on the web site have been revised and include a link to this page. If you print a badge form that includes information different than what is stated above please ignore what is printed on the form and follow the process as described. 

Once you earn the Adventure Dog Title on your dog, you are entitled to work toward a wide variety of specialty badges.  From the Adventure Dog badges right through all the badges, you will find everything you need here – requirements, badge forms, and training tips and guides. 

Some require that you keep a log, some are done on the “honor” system, and most can be earned by video submission if there is not a qualified Evaluator near you.  Most of all… you and your dog will have tons of FUN learning and earning! 

Badges are sorted by category to make them easier to locate.  There are a few badges that “fit” more than one category, and you may see one listed in various places.  It is the same badge – just included in multiple categories.  

Please remember… although you MAY work on criteria for any badges you wish at any time, you will NOT be able to actually receive official recognition for those badges until after you have successfully earned the Adventure Dog title on your dog.
