Enter the wonderful world of dog tricks! Our instructors will walk you through, step-by-step, learning how to teach your dog cute and useful tricks. This class gives you an opportunity, in a small classroom setting, to be able to title your dog with AKC for your novice title. Tricks aren’t just for fun! Tricks can:
Create a stronger bond between you and your dog
Keep your dog in “working mode” even during stress or excitement
Help diminish undesired behaviors by turning them into useful and helpful behaviors
Make some breeds more appealing to the public
