Dog Scout

The first step in a wonderful journey…

Dog Scout BadgeBefore you can receive any other specialty merit badges, you and your dog MUST complete the Dog Scout Title.  Although not overly difficult, this is not a simple task, and proves that you are a responsible owner and your dog has learned to behave appropriately.

Rules that apply to ALL badges:

  1.  No reward items (treats/toys/etc.) on the handler during the badge test.
  2. If a badge requires a “leave-it” that means it should be performed to the same standards as required for the Dog Scout test/title.
  3. Only training methods that do not conflict with the DSA Position on Punishment may be used.
  4. The dog should perform each exercise confidently and willingly.
