From your dog's perspective everything is a trick - in this fun class you'll build all your dog's good basic behaviours, and really build your own problem solving and training brain, so that you can teach your dog anything.

Build your relationship, improve your teamwork, and contributes to confidence and co-ordination for you and your dog.

It is designed to guide you through a variety of Tricks which can count towards a Do More with Your Dog (DMWYD) Trick Title, should you wish to apply.

The classes are 4 weeks long and will contain multiple chances to be assessed for Novice, Intermediate, Advanced and/or Excellent Trick Titles, or you might just want to come along for fun and to develop more party tricks to show off to your family and friends!
