Teaching your dogs tricks is a great way to have fun with your dog! I will over the basic fundamentals of using marker-based training relating to teaching tricks - it will all be positive reinforcement training. We will be using shaping, luring, and capturing. You choose which tricks you would like to work on, or be creative and make up your own.
Some tricks that will be introduced: spins, bow, weave, circling objects, paw raises and paw touches on objects, backing around hander, circling the handler, placing the head n objects, touch with the nose, roll up a yoga mat, handlers' choice.
Additional benefits include: Strengthening the bond between owner and dog, entertainment on pet therapy visits, showing them off at your dinner parties, relieving stress at competitions, increasing your dog's confidence, providing mental stimulation.
