Course Description

Total Team: Tricks For All Seasons :: Frankie Joiris and Chris Ott

Explore different training techniques while learning fun tricks with your dog.

Teaching tricks is a fun, silly and low pressure way to practice training skills, learn about different training techniques, engage your dog’s mind, increase focus, mental acuity and flexibility, and give your dog a work out when the weather is not conducive to outdoor exercise. Tricks are also a great way for puppies, retired older dogs, dogs who are rehabbing, or dogs who, for any other reason, can’t take the physical stress of sport training, to keep busy, fit and entertained.
