Does your dog love to learn new things? Are you looking for ways to keep that busy brain mentally engaged? Do you want to expand your skills as a trainer, build your relationship, and try something new with your dog? Whether you're starting from zero or already have a "tight five" ready to go, Trick and Treat will give you and your dog a chance to learn, grow, and perform!
In this fun and light-hearted all-levels class, you and your pup will work together to build up your repertoire of tricks. In the process, you'll develop communication and training skills that will strengthen your relationship with your dog for years to come. Instructors will cover different positive reinforcement methods of teaching new behaviors including luring, capturing, shaping, and training "loops," and help you figure out which method to use for which tricks. When you're ready, they'll help you build strong cues and fade your prompts so that you and your dog can really impress your friends!
Tricks covered will depend on your interests and previous experience, but may include: Sit, Down, Shake, Spin, Sit Pretty, Roll Over, Bow, Crawl, Back up, Jump, Under, Climb, Dance, Hold, Play Dead, Paw Stand, Leg Weaves, Go To Bed, Get Your Leash, Put Away Your Toys, and Find Mom/Find Dad.
