Tricks Training Class

Trick training is great fun for both dogs and their owners! It’s still training – just as obedience training is – and builds on the training relationship you have with your dog. Dogs must have good basic obedience skills prior to enrolling in this class.

In this class, we talk about how to teach a lot of different tricks and you can pick and choose which to teach and practice during the class (and after!). We keep this class small so we can work with you and your dog on your tricks.

This course is five weeks long, one hour per week, and is $100.

The next class will start on Thursday, June 8th at 7:00 pm and will end on July 13th. (Class on July 6th will be postponed for the monthly walk about town.)

This class is only available to Kindred Spirits graduates. Reservations are required for this class.
