Online Tricks Intermediate

Have fun and build your teamwork with your dog as you train a bunch of snazzy tricks!  This second level class covers tricks from the Intermediate level tricks checklist from the AKC Trick Dog program. Each week you’ll gain access to detailed demonstration videos which will guide you as you train each trick.  You’ll get plenty of encouragement and feedback from your instructor in the class’s private Facebook Group.

Additionally, each Monday beginning November 16th at 3:45pm-4:15pm Meagan will broadcast a Facebook Live event answering all of your questions and giving extra tips. You can watch the broadcast live, or the recording will be available for viewing at your convenience.

If you are able to complete videos of 10 of the required tricks by the end of class, you’ll earn your official AKC Trick Dog Intermediate title! We’ll provide the official AKC verification form and a gorgeous ribbon!
