Trick Dog Training

Cost $25 (each session)

2SpeakDog is now offering the fun and excitement of Trick Dog training in workshop form! Our staff will show you how trick training improves your pup's obedience skills, self-control, and focus. Trick training is a lively, enjoyable method of furthering your pup’s training while strengthening the bond between you and your pup!

These workshops are great for almost every pup! If your furry friend has a ~lot~ of energy, or is too smart for their own good, trick training is the way to go! We will put that canine brain to work, combining physical training with mental stimulation, to burn energy and teach them a whole host of new skills. For pups who are little anxious and need a confidence boost, trick training helps develop a trusting relationship based on communication, respect, and positive reinforcement. Trick training is a great way to expand obedience skills (yes, obedience skills!) beyond basic training, and helps keep your pup in top “training shape” before, during, and after our program of Obedience classes.

PRE-REQUISITE: Knowledge of sit, down, and settle. Completion of a 2SD obedience class helpful but not required.
