Trick Dog Class
Class limited to 10 students
4 weeks/$60
Prerequisite: None

Dogs/puppies over 3 months of age are welcome. No aggressive/reactive dogs please.

Dog tricks are more than just entertainment for friends and family!
In this 4-week, one-hour class taught by Certified Trick Dog Instructors, your dog will learn tricks and games in a fun and positive way. Enrich your dog’s life by becoming more aware of how your dog learns, therefore strengthening the foundations of basic obedience.

Benefits of trick training:

  • Improves communication
  • Increases focus and concentration
  • Mental exercise for dogs
  • Builds confidence – great for shy dogs
  • Teaches impulse control
  • Increases dog’s body awareness
  • Strengthens the bond between you and dog!
Bring to class:
  • Leather leash; pull tab if you have one
  • Variety of tiny training treats
  • Bait bag
  • Favorite small toy
  • Clicker (available for purchase)

Trick testing is offered on the last night of class if you wish to earn trick titles under AKC Trick Dog or Do More With Your Dog titling programs. For more information: www.akc.org or www.domorewithyourdog.com

Note: If your dog attempts to bite or has bitten a person, or lunges/snaps at other dogs, or you are not physically able to control your dog, then a group class is not a suitable environment. It is best to consult with an animal behaviorist.
