First Day of Course: April 13, 2020
Course Length: 16 weeks
Class has started, but it's not too late to join in! You will be able to see all of the lessons regardless of when you enroll.
This class is very beneficial for dogs competing in any dog sport because it focuses on tricks that involve strength building, body awareness, balance, coordination, and thinking skills.
Tricks are a great way to build a bond with our dogs, and work on our timing when training new behaviors. We can also learn a lot about our dogs by teaching them tricks. We can learn how they think and how they learn new behaviors. This comes in handy when we need to teach any new behavior for sport, such as weaves or contacts in agility. If you're training tricks with a puppy, they will learn how to learn, and they will learn faster with each new trick. See the Syllabus for a list of the tricks covered.
What is included with your Standard registration?
- 8 lessons with written lectures and video instruction with 16 weeks to complete them (a new lesson is released every 2 weeks so you have time to refine each trick)
- Access to all course materials on both mobile devices and your computer
- Downloadable content for off-line access when you're out training
- Ability to participate in discussions and watch all posted videos—you may ask specific questions about course content, but not questions about your own dog
- Keep what you buy—No expiring content; after the course ends, you won't be able to ask questions, but the content is still available to you
NOTE: If you would like to be able to submit videos of your dog working on the homework as well as ask specific questions about your dog and his progress, you should sign up for the Premier registration.
Equipment and space needed
- Most of the tricks can be done with items you can find around the house. A few tricks are more specialized and require things that everyone might not have, like a second dog (Hug Your Friend), stairs (Backing Up the Stairs), or a skateboard (Skateboarding). But otherwise, the tricks require basic items like treats, a clicker (optional), objects for targeting (lids, plates, random around-the-house items), a dog bed or rolled-up towel, varied sizes of bowls or boxes and other containers, a pole, a bottle, a low object for dog to back up on, a piece of Plexiglass or smooth glass (a shelf from your fridge would work!), sticky notes, spoons, a stool or coffee table, and a hand towel.
- Most training can be done in the living room or a similar space
