Trick Dog (Novice & Intermediate)

4 weeks - $115

Prerequisite: Completion of Puppy Kindergarten, Basic Manners or Confident Canine

Are you looking for the next level of fun and rewarding training for you and your dog? Trick training not only provides physical and mental challenges for your dog, but also encourages a relationship based upon clear communication and positive reinforcement training methods. Plus, your dog will learn some great new tricks that you can show off to your friends and family!

Some of the tricks covered in the Novice and Intermediate levels include:

  • Novice: crawl, stand, shake a paw, peek-a-boo, spin, fetch and more!

  • Intermediate: close a door, roll over, sit pretty, wave goodbye, leg weave and more!

Just like people, every dog is unique and learns differently. These classes will challenge you as a trainer to be creative in finding which positive reinforcement training method (shaping, capturing, targeting or luring) works best for your dog to learn each new trick.

During the course your instructor will follow your progress and you may be eligible for a Trick Dog Title upon completion.

All classes come with weekly homework handouts to guide you through your home practice.
