Welcome to Trick Doggin' with Cari!
Spending time with your best friend is fun for both you and your dog. Teach your dog new tricks to show your friends, family. You just might want to join “Trick Doggin'” and do demos for the public. We have a demo scheduled for May with Rosewood and would love to work on a performance for that. Tricks will be geared with that in mind. However if you do not want to do demos for the public that is fine too....We have plenty of things they can learn just for you!
This class is taught with Progressive Reinforcement Training. Progressive Reinforcement Training essentially means teaching animals by rewarding desired behaviors and excluding the intentional use of physical or psychological intimidation.
It is a philosophy which encourages the integration of your dog into your life in a variety of ways—through sport, training, or accompanying you to more places. Dogs have a way of making the activities we share with them more fun, and by giving them training, we allow them to participate in more areas of our life.
Do More With Your Dog!® is the only official sanctioning and organizing body for the sport of Dog Tricks. Download the application and I can witness and sign off on the tricks that your dog knows. Together we can teach enough tricks so that your dog earns their title. How fun is that!
