This intermediate class will take your training to a whole new level! Tricks is the perfect class for teaching your dog to think and problem solve in a fun and interactive way. While tricks are an excellent way to improve communication with your dog and training skills, they are just plain fun both to teach and watch.
This class will be especially interesting to those who do pet therapy as Tricks will provide creative activities and ways to introduce and present "trick" behaviors to an audience for therapy dog visits.
This class is not just for therapy dogs though - everybody enjoys seeing clever canines perform amazing tricks! Many of these tricks are interactive and are geared for children, friends and family of all ages. "The Big Book of Tricks" is included in the class.
Some examples are: High Five, Bone Balance, Take a Bow, Circle Left, Circle Right, Jump Through A Hoop, Crawl, Answer Questions, Find It and more!
Prerequisites: Dogs will need only basic skills such as: Sit, Down and Stay. Dogs MUST be friendly and non-reactive around people and other dogs. The workshop will include four one hour classes, the "Big Book of Dog Tricks" book and props including Trick Cards featuring laminated photo cards of your YOUR dog performing various tricks and other ideas and props for showing off what you and your dog can do together!
Watch as the ultimate Trick dog wins a game of Simon Says!
BONUS: This class also offers AKC Trick Dog Title(s) for those dogs demonstrating tricks at various levels! More information about the AKC Trick Dog levels can be found on the AKC Website by clicking HERE!
