mentally and physically stimulating tricks

Dog Trick Training Course

Aim & intended outcomes

Do you have a bored dog that is destructive and not enhancing your family life? Do you want them to start using their brain and increase the bond between you? Many canine behaviour problems are caused by boredom or a lack of mental stimulation. Mental enrichment / stimulation is just as important for dogs as is physical exercise. Mental enrichment activities such as dog trick training result in improved mental health and cognitive function in dogs.

Our Dog Trick Training course Is fun for both dog and human, it teaches patience (for you and your dog!), it will increase your dog’s confidence, help your dog with distractions, let out your dog’s excess energy, and strengthen the bond between you and your dog.

Intended audience

Any breed, size and age of dog and is welcome.

“Mental stimulation is as important for dogs as physical exercise and resulted in improved mental health and cognitive function in our dogs.” – Jess Kaddatz, Lead Trainer.

How this course is delivered

Your dog’s journey through this dog trick training course will be 1 on 1 training & will be centred around your dog’s ability not as a group. You will be able to view and learn from each dog and handler upon their turn. This is extremely beneficial for your training future. Every dog learns at progresses differently so the more training you can be exposed to, the better understanding you will have regarding dog training and problem solving. We ask you to come with a couple of “wants” and “don’t wants” so that once the base level is understood we can start working on your wish list.

On day 1, we will complete a theory component, this goes from 9am till morning tea. During this time, we will explain to you the theory behind operant conditioning and use of a clicker to mark the dog and the reasons behind utilising a clicker to clearly communicate with your dog.

We hope you will complete this training with a good understanding of operant conditioning, be able to go forward and continue to develop and train your dog in trick work. This will in turn lead to a better relationship between yourself and your dog. By completing these fun activities with your dog, you will see the benefits behind exercising your dog’s brain and not just its body.

We are hoping that you will then take these skills home and transfer them onto other dogs that maybe in your family either now or in the future.
