Tricks

Learn how to teach your dog almost any trick with the help of a clicker and our tricks class! Tricks are a great way to build the bond with your dog, expand their skillset, and work on your own skills as a handler. During the first 5 weeks of class, we will cover a variety of tricks that are on the list for the AKC Novice Trick Dog title. Tricks include roll over, on your bed, crawl, pushups, high five, take a bow, and spin in a circle. During the 6th week you will take the test for the AKC Novice Trick Dog title! Additional levels are offered for higher level Trick Titles.
 
Prerequisites: Either Puppy Preschool or Beginner Obedience.

Impulse Control Workshop

Is your dog impatient, demanding, hyperactive, or bouncy? Maybe your dog is a developing adolescent or a very active adult. Having an overly excitable dog can be overwhelming and frustrating.
 
While we can't change our dog's temperament, we are able to use training methods to help our dogs develop the ability to remain calm and better self-regulate. As we set boundaries and create communication skills with our dogs, we help them to learn to be patient and to better control their emotions.
 
Through a series of games and exercises, this class will help you provide Fido an "off" switch and learn to control his impulses.
