Looking for fun activities to do with your dog? Try Trick training!
Teaching your dog tricks is fun for you and for your dog. During trick classes you will learn how to teach your
dog tricks using positive reinforcement. Not only will your dog learn some tricks, but trick training will help
your dog become a dog that loves to learn. Tricks training provides mental stimulation for your dog and
strengthens the bond between you and your dog.
