A great way to build a strong bond with your dog
Teaching your dog to do tricks enables you to spend quality one-to-one time together.
Tricks are taught using positive training methods with lots of praise and reward. Dogs respond because it is fun, plus they are receiving lots of attention from their owner.
There are various different training techniques for trick training including Clicker Training, Luring and Shaping. A dog can learn tricks regardless of breed, size or age.
Trick training is great fun for both dog and owner. It only needs 5 to 10 minutes a day. It also provides valuable mental stimulation for your dog, which can go a long way towards preventing boredom leading to behavioural problems.
