Trick Training Workshop with Andy Winther!
April 8 from 12pm - 3pm

 

 

Whether you take joy in just playing with your dog or you aspire to achieve greater competitive skills, tricks are a foundation to success.
Trick training involves the gradual development of simple incremental joyful tasks that, when put together, "the whole is greater than the sum of the parts".

Dog tricks are the product of an evolving bond built on trust and fun.
Dogs develop thinking skills as they stitch together the basics, resulting in a happier, active, thinking dog wanting to engage with the owner. You will find your dog offering you more interaction and wanting to learn more.

Class size will be limited to 6 dogs and their handlers and additional auditors

Cost: $75, if participating with your dog

           $20 Audit Only (without your dog)

 

Dogs should know some basic obedience.

Examples of tricks that may be covered:

  • Blow bubbles
  • Circle around you backwards
  • Figure 8 backwards
  • Limp
  • Paw Dance
  • Shy
