In this Workshop you will teach your dog a few simple tricks, such as Touch, Wave, Walk Back, Sit Up, Weave Thru your Legs, Hide your face, Crawl, Roll Over, Play Dead, Spin, Shake your head, Paws Up. Those dogs that have already learned these tricks can work on advancing their proficiency or they could work on more advanced tricks like Ring a bell, Jump thru your arms or a Hoop, Peek a Boo, Say Your Prayers & more. Teaching Tricks is a great way to engage, challenge and bond with your dog and it’s FUN since there’s no pressure. Tricks are a great way to keep your dog focused and engaged while waiting for your run in Agility, to reduce anxiety at the vet’s office or to put a smile on someone’s face at Therapy visits or just to impress your friends & family.
All participants will leave with a set of exercises to continue the work on your own.
Maximum 8 working spots, $75 ($65 current students); auditing spots available for $45 ($40 current students).
