What: We will be teaching some simple tricks to the dogs. You’ll get to start working on these in class but will have some homework to perfect them. We will have 2 to 3 tricks homeworks per week and will work with a few props as class progresses. We’ll be using clicker training, shaping, marking, capturing and luring. Not all dogs will do the same tricks in class but you’ll get to go home with an idea of how to work on them. Some tricks we could work on: Shake, Wave, Sit up, Weave Through Legs, Jump Into Arms, Stand on Hind Legs, Cross legs, Shame, Roll over, Bang, Spin, Walk Back, etc. We’ll take a vote, and also go from the dog’s preferences. Each person might work something different. Tricks are a great way to teach your dog how to LEARN! You can never go wrong with tricks so there’s no pressure to them – all the better for you both to enjoy!!!
Why: Trick training is a great way to teach your dog “how” to learn; gives you the chance to improve your timing & decision making; builds confidence in the under-confident dog; and channels the energy of over-exuberant dogs into positive behaviors that will delight you & impress your friends.
