Dog Tricks Class

Tricks Classic and Tricks Encore

What you and your dog will get from these classes:

  • A dog that’ll be the life of the party wherever you go!
  • A training challenge for both you and your dog – your capturing and shaping skills will be put to the test!
  • Foundation skills that lead to many other paths such as Canine Freestyle or Disc Dog.
  • Tricks Classic and Tricks Encore are standalone courses with different fun tricks. Take one or both, any order, your choice!

In Tricks Classic:

  • Roll over
  • Bow
  • Spin
  • Back up
  • Cross paws
  • Four paws in a bowl
  • Sit pretty
  • Weave
  • Put your toys away

In Tricks Encore:

  • Crawl
  • Push a Button
  • Tell Me a Secret
  • Chin Rest/Take a Selfie
  • Jump
  • Airplane / Arm Hoop
  • Read Cue Cards
  • Balance a Treat on Nose
  • Cover Your Eyes
  • Scratch/Dig

Dogs that already know basic versions of these behaviours may work on more advanced versions, focusing on enhancing precision, latency, and speed, and introducing duration and distance, or cue minimization/transfers to verbal cues.

Tricks are a fun and accessible way to bond with your dog and give them mental stimulation and enrichment.

Giving your dog things to do help prevent boredom! Boredom often leads to the development of unwanted behaviours such as destructive chewing, object stealing, or demand barking. So give your dog a hobby and have some fun!
