For All Ages and Stages
Prerequisite: Level 1 or the equivalent with Instructor Approval
Who’s it for?: ALL DOGS – mixed, purebreds, and rare breeds!
Class Length: 6 weeks, 60 minutes each week
Class Focus: With the introduction of AKC’s new Trick Dog Division, there is a fun new competitive environment in which ALL dogs can earn a little recognition for their abilities. This course will introduce the how-tos of trick training through luring, shaping and capturing, while introducing a number of creative and clever pet tricks. For an AKC Trick Dog Novice Title, dogs and their handlers must perform 10 unique tricks (5 if the dog has achieved its Canine Good Citizen certificate). Each week we’ll intro new tricks to train while practicing the previous week’s clever actions. I will provide instruction on how to register your dog with the American Kennel Club and check off those tricks as you work towards your title!
