Online Tricks Novice

This four week class covers all the tricks you’ll need to earn your AKC Novice Tricks title. Detailed demonstration videos and lectures make training fun and easy. You’ll get plenty of encouragement and feedback from your instructor in the class’s private Facebook Group.
Each week you’ll gain access to that week’s video lessons. Additionally, each week Meagan will broadcast a Facebook Live event answering all of your questions and giving extra tips. You can watch that broadcast live, or at your convenience. The scheduled Facebook Lives for this class beginning 1/11/21 are from 1:30pm – 2pm on Mondays.
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 Novice title! We’ll provide a gorgeous ribbon and your test form.
