Trick Training Classes – rolling blocks of 6 weeks of classes for £48.

This class will help you work towards trick training certificates assessed by Chrysalis K9 and by In The Dog House run by Nando Brown. The classes are also a great way to have fun with your dog, build a strong bond and enhance basic obedience.

Chrysalis K9 Trick Dog Level 1

Train force free and video, 6 of the following tricks. Each trick can be cued with a word or a hand / body signal but no luring is allowed in the final video. Record 3 performances of each trick to capture the best that you and your dog can achieve.

Edit together a video of your dog’s 6 tricks and post it on youtube, we will assess it and if its good enough then you get the level 1 certificate and rosette! (We can help you if the video editing is a bit of a mystery!)
