Tricks and Heelwork To Music Class
Jen’s passion for all things dog training was born from teaching tricks. She competes in Heelwork To Music and Freestyle and has a number of trick awards with both of her own dogs.
Teaching your dog tricks may seem a “little silly”, but trick training has a variety of benefits to your dog and you as the dog owner. Trick training can build a better recall, keep your dog fit, increase your dog’s motivation, dramatically improves your bond with your dog and it can greatly improve your skills in teaching your dog other behaviours.
If you enjoy teaching tricks, you might also be interested in getting started in Heelwork To Music (HTM). HTM is a fun and creative dog sport in which you and your dog work together to build routines and sequences in time with your choice of music.
Our trick training classes start with beginner which is suitable for anyone who has never taught their dog tricks before, right through to competition classes for anyone competing (or considering competing) in Heelwork To Music.
Jen always finds fun ways to teach me and my dog new things. She uses tricks and games to find solutions to everyday problems. It is never boring for either of us!
