Foundation Trick Dog  10-Week Course

This is a 10-week progressive course that covers all the fundamentals of Trick Dog training with positive training methods and lots of fun, toys and treats. Trick Training builds a positive bond between handler and dog, develops patience, builds confidence, assists with distraction training, and lets out your dog’s excess energy in a controlled, safe training environment.

All equipment is provided, and any agility equipment is gradually introduced at lower heights. The Trick Dog Foundation course offers up to 45 tricks over 10 weeks.

Upon completion, handlers and their dogs will receive a certificate and rosette, allowing progress to the Intermediate Trick Dog level.

This course is open to dogs that have had some formal Obedience training, with sit, drop, stay and off-leash control essential in the training and development of Trick Dog skills.

While excitement is normal, barking must be minimal. Aggressive/reactive behaviour will not be tolerated. The class is limited to 4 dogs, so it is essential that you return the signed form below with a 50% deposit to secure a place. Complete payment is required on the first day of the course, if not done so prior.

The cost of the 10 week course is $360, including all training and assessment materials.
Fees are non-refundable after the first class.

No classes can be made up if missed.

Bitches going into heat cannot attend. Please plan accordingly.

Vaccinations: please provide proof of up-to-date vaccinations

Further preparation: non correcting collar (buckle or quick snap), gentle leader or easy walk harness and a long leash. We do not allow prong collars or choke chains. Bring plenty of soft tasty treats in tiny pieces as well as a fun toy for rewarding and play breaks.

Please dress accordingly, with correct active wear and closed-in training shoes. The Training area is fully rubberised and enclosed, with great air flow. It is not air-conditioned.
