Teaching your dog tricks is not only fun but offers many other benefits. Tricks training enhances the bond between you and your dog, improves their ability to learn new things, is a confidence builder and teaches high-energy dogs to focus on you.
Take a bow, where your dog keeps his back legs upright but bows down on his front legs, is an easy trick to teach your dog. Start with your dog standing. Hold a treat at your dogs nose, slowly pull straight down and slightly forward towards the dog as the treat nears the ground.
To entice you to consider taking a tricks class, Luvk9s will be offering $20 off the AKC Novice tricks class that starts Jan. 7th.
