Unleashed Pawtential and Hound Lounge Wellington have partnered to bring you a range of dog training classes in Miramar, Wellington. We are proud to announce the new partnership by hosting a Novice Dog Tricks Workshop.
Come and teach your dogs some new tricks to impress the relatives before Christmas! Cathi is a Certified Trick Dog Instructor, and she has trained her dog Griffin to achieve his Novice, Intermediate and Advanced Trick Dog Titles.
This workshop will teach a total of 15 tricks - enough to achieve the Novice Trick Dog title. Some of the tricks chosen are really useful real life behaviours, and if everything is trained as a trick then training is more fun!
- Lie Down
- Spin Circles
- Figure-8 (through your legs)
- Roll Over
- Shake Hands
- Take a Bow
- Sit Pretty
- Shell Game
- Jump (over your leg)
This workshop is open to dogs of all skill levels, but we do ask that you only bring dogs who are social and happy to work near other dogs. If you have a less-than-social dog then you're welcome to attend as an Observer - you'll receive the same step-by-step instructions to take home, and you'll have the advantage of watching multiple dogs learn.
Important note: if you choose the option to attend with your dog and pay for the Novice Trick Dog title (including a certificate, ribbon and the bragging rights of the letter 'NTD' after your dog's name), then the assessment to pass this title will be held in mid-January 2017. To earn the title your dog needs to do the tricks on verbal/hand command only, which is a lot to expect after one workshop!
