Tricks Class

Length:
4 weeks, about 60 minutes
Description:
A trick is a behavior that you teach your dog for fun. (Which, for many of us, describes all training.) Teaching tricks is a great way to develop the bond between you and your dog and to teach your dog to think creatively. Tricks enhance visits for therapy dogs, provide interest in freestyle routines, burn energy for puppies, and are a relaxed way to keep older dogs learning. They're also a great way to sharpen your training skills.
Class Fees:
$50
Age of Dog:
6 months and older
Requirements:
For dogs that have completed a Beginning obedience course. Dogs must be current on DHPP and Rabies vaccinations.
