Tricks Program

Tricks I
We'll start with the basics like shake, play dead, roll over and sit up and work our way up to teaching the dogs to wipe their paws, say their prayers, hide in a box, take a selfie and ring a call bell. Our goal is that every dog who graduates from Tricks Class can perform the tricks needed to earn a Novice Trick Dog (NTD) title from Do More With Your Dog.

Tricks II
We’ll build on what we learned in Tricks I and learn more advanced tricks like fetching things, opening doors, and carrying mail and other objects as well as learning tricks that build confidence and body awareness like ladder work and perch work. Our goal is that every dog who graduates from Tricks Class can perform the tricks needed to earn an Intermediate Trick Dog (ITD) title from Do More With Your Dog.

Tricks III

We'll work on the tricks you'll need to earn your Advanced and Expert titles from Do More With Your Dog. Some of these include pulling a wagon, ring toss, playing basketball, getting the newspaper, fetching the mail, putting toys away, distance work and rolling yourself in a blanket.
