Come join us for a super fun class and learn some new tricks for pet therapy or just to show off how smart your dog is! This class is limited to a maximum of 8 dogs. Spend the first six weeks learning tricks and the 7th week test for a Trick Training Title! In this tricks class you will learn basic tricks and how to build on them to create more elaborate tricks by luring, shaping, capturing and chaining tricks together, you will learn enough tricks to earn your Novice Trick Dog Title through “Do More With Your Dog”. This class can be repeated to add additional tricks or to create more advanced chains of tricks. Teaching tricks to our dogs mentally stimulates them, builds their confidence and improves our bond with them.
Tricks you will learn how to teach your dog: Spin (clockwise and counter-clockwise), leg weaving, figure eights, paws up, say you’re prayers, shake hands, high five, wave, sit pretty, take a bow, jump though a hoop, touch, soccer/push a ball, shell game, wipe your feet, roll over and crawl!
Please be sure your dog's core vaccines are up to date, or you have up to date titers. We also require rabies for dogs over six months and bordetella. We also require the H3N2 canine flu vaccine.
