This class is designed to teach you how to train your dog skills beyond the traditional obedience repetoir. This class is particularly helpful for those dogs and handlers who have already mastered some basic obedience skills and who would like to enhance further their relationship and mutual learning. As we go, we will be specifically training the skills that are a part of AKC’s trick dog program. Consequently, if handlers would like, they may also obtain the AKC’s titles that go along with the trick dog program. Regardless, developing these skills with your dog will enhance your dog’s fitness, communication skills, resilience in the face of new challenges, and his relationship with his handler.
