As many of you know, trick training is one of my specialties. I love trick training not only because our dogs can learn some cool tricks that we can show off to our friends and family but also because it helps improve our mutual relationship and understanding.
I am pretty sure that you have taught your dog some tricks already. In fact all behaviours you teach your dog can be considered tricks, such as Sit, Down, Stay, and Come. In addition to those four basic tricks, does your dog do Fetch, Give, Leave It, Go to Bed, Focus (5 sec), Hand Touch, Paws on an Object, Peekaboo (Middle), Spin, Roll Over, and Shake Hands for example? If your dog can do 15 tricks, your dog can earn a Trick Dog Title!
If you are interested in Trick Titles or just Trick Training, join our K9 Trickstas Learning Group on Facebook!! It's free. As well as questions about trick training, you can ask anything there. I will do my best to help you!
