These are just some of the benefits our clients report enjoying when they take our 6 class Trick Dog Title program. While sanctioned trick dog titles are a fun goal to achieve with your dog, many dog owners are choosing trick training as a way to improve their dog training skills, while creating a highly motivated, obedient and very engaged dog who wants to be part of the team. Trick training goes where traditional training activities don't reach using clicker training and other positive dog training techniques. Our trick dog program graduates have found themselves performing in theatres, in film productions, and even helping out as service dogs.
A side benefit of trick dog training is amazing canine fitness. Many of the tricks the dogs learn are low impact, and involve balance and target muscle groups that dogs don't normally use (like core muscles, gluteal muscles), creating a stronger, more co-ordinated dog that is less susceptible to common injuries such as ACL tears and back injuries.
