Trick Training Builds Confidence!
Training your dog to perform various tricks can have a profound effect on your dog’s confidence, both in and out of the classroom.
It is amazing what can happen when you put the dog in charge of his own behavior! Dogs can really blossom in this class conquering things that once used to be scary.
Besides, who doesn’t love a dog that can perform adorable tricks!
Trick Training Builds a Great Bond!
Trick Training is such a fun class because it is so different from the regular manners classes.
Dogs learn more by shaping behavior, which requires the handler to pay more attention to the dog’s subtle (or sometimes not so subtle) signs their dog is figuring out the desired behavior.
Handlers become quite “in-tune” with their dogs by training tricks.
Trick Training is Fun and Rewarding!
Trick Training is a lot of fun for both the dog and handler! It is very rewarding to see your dog figure out what you want him to do.
Trick training is a great way to burn off some of your dog’s energy too! Especially mental energy.
And who doesn’t like shiny ribbons?! Did you know you can earn titles and ribbons by passing the AKC’s Trick Dog Tests?
