Tricks are a great way to connect with your dog and have fun. Trick training also results in better health (as many tricks help build muscle tone and stamina), increased flexibility, balance and concentration, as well as a boost in your dog’s confidence in him or herself and you. At the same time, each new behavior you teach provides you with yet another useful way to channel your dog’s energy into something positive.

In this 5 week class you will teach your dog many of the following tricks: go to your place,  shake, rollover, spin, fetch, jump through hoop, tunnel, climb, push a shopping cart, ride a skateboard, bang! play dead, and much more!
