Go beyond teaching your dog “sit” and “stay” with our trick training class!

Learning tricks is an excellent way to stimulate your dog mentally and physically, while building confidence and improving body awareness. Plus, it’s just plain fun! Trick training can be beneficial to dogs of all ages, and many of the tricks your pup will learn have practical uses in the real world. 

In our Cool Tricks class, dogs will work to learn tricks at whatever level is appropriate for their experience and also work to fade lures for tricks already in process! What is a lure?
