The Trick Is In The Training - START

Description:

The Trick is in the Training!

Joining a tricks class is a great way to learn more about your dog and more about training. If you are a better trainer you will be able to help your dog through any problem behaviours that might come up:

Through this program you will learn more about the different ways to teach dogs things like shaping, luring, or capturing a behaviour. You will also learn how to reinforce behaviours in an instructive way through use of a marking word, placement of reward, and rate of reinforcement or absence of reinforcement. Learning these components during the training of tricks allows you and your dog to relax and enjoy the fun of learning something new together!

You will learn how to develop a simple paw trick into a number of fun and useful behaviours. Once you’ve taught your puppy to “shake a paw”, you could also teach them “high 5”, wave or even hold their paws to be wiped or for nail trims.

In each session you will concentrate on several tricks from different categories. There are targeting tricks such as go to your mat, ring a bell, or body tricks like rolling over, hiding your eyes or taking a bow. There are tricks that include interacting with you like weaving through your legs or the environment, such as shutting a door. There are also many tricks that can be taught around toys and objects such as bringing you the leash or putting toys away as well as functional tricks for grooming and handling.

This class will help you learn some “tricks” of the trade. Most dogs enjoy learning new things, so let’s get started.

The trainer for this class is Andrea Ferguson Jones, (Certified Trick Dog Instructor)

The Trick Is In The Training is 6 weeks, and is limited to 6 dogs.

Class Fee: $250 (+HST)/Session of 6 weekly classes
