Trick City Challenge 2012

by Jen on January 24, 2012

Here’s the challenge announcement – make sure you read the fine print at bottom of page:


If your dog can do it, so can Hazel &/or Gladys &/or Pursey.

If Hazel &/or Gladys &/or Pursey can’t do your trick, you win.

What:  Post a photo of your dog doing a trick on the Fetching Tags Facebook page.  Post must include dog name, title of trick (clever titles are best) & your email address.  Make sure that you include this info, we will need it to respond to your challenge & email your prize!

trick defined:  This can be a photo of your dog doing anything that could be duplicated in a normal household or yard setting.  Tricks can be as basic (sit) or as tricky (backflip) as you can capture in a photo.  No dangerous tricks or tricks like dock diving (tricks involving things – like the ocean or stadiums) we can’t recreate here.

Where:  Like I said, on our Facebook page.

When:  Post your trick by Saturday January 28th at midnight.


1.  Each person who enters the contest by posting a pet trick photo, receives a $5 Fetching Tags gift certificate – enter as many pets/times as you wish, but only one $5 certificate per household.

1a.  Photos entered in any previous Fetching Tags contests may not be entered in giveaway.

2. If Hazel &/or Gladys &/or Pursey can’t do your trick(s), or can’t be captured in a photo doing your trick, you get a $10 Fetching Tags gift certificate (enter as many pets/times as you wish, but only one $5  or $10 certificate per household).

3.  Grand Prize winner,  for best trick that can’t be done by H/G/P, wins a custom Paco Collar with rivet-on Fetching Tags, almost the best trick will get a $60 Fetching Tags gift certificate, and Hazel’s Choice wins $40 certificate – to be determined by an independent judge (& Hazel).


The fine print:  Hazel & Gladys & Pursey reserve the right to cheat, substitute props, &/or call on their cat, Preacher, or any other herd, flock or pack members as trick stunt doubles.

Any necessary clarification of giveaway rules will be made here on this blog post, like this:

While you may use more than one gift certificate on a purchase, any combined certificates must originate from a single person/recipient.

Yes, cats & other animals are welcome to compete.

Your official entry must be in form of photo, but you may send a video as clarification.

One trick per pet.

Let’s Get Tricky!

Spike, Lil and I are accepting this challenge.

Would a low to the ground window ledge (like, 12″ – 24″ off the ground) be a location that can be duplicated?

Neil would like to participate again. I’m assuming that it would be okay if the entrant is a semi-dog-like cat and not technically a dog at all? Neil is willing to be challenged by the dogs or by Preacher. Please let me know if we are in and we will begin to devise our trick.

That’s a hilarious idea! I don’t have a dog to do a trick with at the moment, but I will be watching the Facebook page to see the photos!

Yes, a low window ledge sounds doable & cats & other dogs may enter at will. . .
