Trick Dog Programs

Why Teach Your Dog Tricks?

  • Tricks offer mental stimulation for your dog

  • Tricks build confidence in your dog - great for fearful, anxious or reactive dogs

  • Tricks provide valuable bonding time with your dog

  • Tricks teach your dog how to learn - if they can learn tricks they can learn obedience and good behavior

  • Tricks are fun! It is very cool to show off your dog's tricks for family and friends, on therapy dog visits, etc.

  • From the 1920's and 1940's when trick dogs such as Rin Tin Tin and Lassie won people's hearts, trick dog training has become one of the most exciting new areas in dog training today!

  • You can earn Trick Dog titles with your dog!

Any dog can learn new tricks!
