AKC Trick Dog Class

AKC Trick Dog Class

 Our trick training class is fun for dogs of all ages and training levels. No experience is required. 

This class covers a series of tricks that will delight your family and friends and make your dog the star of the neighborhood. You will also earn your dog’s AKC Novice Trick Dog title (open to dogs of all breeds and ancestry!).

What do we Learn?

We have a few foundation tricks, and some that are Owner’s Choice. Our foundation tricks – the “classics” – are:

Sit & Down
Hand Target
Take a Bow
Spin & Twist (circle right and left)
Roll Over
Jump Through a Hoop
Play Dead

We’ll have time to cover more, though! You can see the trick dog title application for a list of all the tricks you have the option of learning: AKC Trick Dog Application (PDF)  Each student will have the opportunity to select a special trick off the list to learn.

Who can attend?

Our class graduates are more than welcome, but no experience is required – this is an entry level class and does not require any training.  However…

* if your dog struggles with focus around other dogs and people, attending a basic obedience class first will allow you to enjoy the tricks class more

* if your dog is 16 weeks old or under, we highly recommend attending puppy class first

* if your dog barks, growls, or lunges at other dogs or people, please attend Woofy Dog Manners School or private training
