Trick Star Online Classes!
Does your dog already know several tricks and has the basics (sit, down, stay) covered? Are you looking for something fun to do on your schedule, at home, to continue challenging you and your dog while strengthening your relationship and improving your dog’s fitness?
Our Trick Star Genius class will have a different theme each month. We will provide a minimum of 3 lessons and various activities focused on the theme for you and your dog to work on during the month. You will have access to a Facebook group where the activities will be posted with instructions and suggestions for intermediate through advanced levels of each task. Participants will be able to ask questions and post videos for feedback.

Anyone that has completed Trick Star 1, regularly attends Mica Dog Sports Club or has instructor approval

Pre-requisites: Ideally dogs will be familiar with marker/reward based training but I will also provide information on it at the beginning of class. Dogs should also be familiar with hand targeting, sit and down.
Equipment Needed: Your dog, food or treats he will work for, clicker (optional, but recommended). We will use regular household items for props.
You will also need a Facebook account.
Method used: All activities will be taught using positive reinforcement and it is recommended you train with a hungry, food motivated dog.
