Looking for a great way to have fun with your dog before the Holidays? How about impressing the family with your pup's hidden talents?

Join our NEW Carnival Tricks Workshop! 

Teaching your dog fun tricks is one of the best ways to continue with your dog’s education! Did you know? Dogs that know tons of tricks often are more obedient with basic commands!


This Workshop will run for 2 weeks, at 90 minutes each session!

Class Topics and Behaviors Taught (may) include:

  • Figure 8 Leg Weave
  • Peek a Boo 
  • Jump over Arms (or Legs) 
  • Jump through a Hoop
  • Circle Body 
  • Say Prayers/Be Shy 
  • Look Left/Right over shoulders
  • Back Up
  • or any other tricks you specifically request!


Some tricks will have a holiday theme to fit the season!


As you teach your dog tricks, you’ll also be learning ways to teach other complex behaviors. Even if your dog knows a lot of tricks, you will expand upon them and learn more! Our class is easy, fun and your dog is guaranteed to love learning new tricks!

This is an 'intensive' Tricks Class that will run for 2 weeks meeting for 90 minutes each session.

  This class is for dogs 6 months and older that have completed Intermediate Puppy Training and/or Intermediate Manners & Obedience for Dogs (or the equivalent)! Dogs need to have a solid “stay”, be comfortable and able to focus working around other dogs and people and be fairly food or toy motivated.

Feel free to enroll your senior companion because old dogs really can learn new tricks!  Dogs must not be leash reactive/aggressive toward people or other dogs. You will be required to provide proof of current, age appropriate vaccinations. Click here to review all our group dog class rules and policies.

The one-time class fee of $150 covers both 90 minute sessions! You and your dog can feel great knowing that a portion of your training class fees benefit the homeless animals in our community!
