Four fun filled weeks of working out the intricacies of trick training and how to use it to build the relationship between you and your dog and get your dog loving to listen.
Tricks vary with each course and i’m always open to suggestion.
We usually use clicker training on this course and introduce the concept to you and your dog.
This is my favourite course to teach and we have so much fun on them.
