Just for tricks

You CAN teach an old dog new tricks! 

Ever wanted to show off some Parlor Tricks with your canine pal at parties, picnics or BBQ's?  Then Just for Tricks is Just for you.  Canines of all ages can learn fun new tricks.  Learn how to teach your dog to Hi-Five, Roll-Over, jump through hoops, balance a bone on their nose, commando crawl, shake hands, the shell game, pick which hand, read, carry a basket and take a bow.

Tools used for Training:

  • Treats that your canine sees as pleasing
  • Three plastic cups for the shell game
  • An 8x10 in piece of card stock for Reading
  • A basket with handle for carrying


The Just for tricks program is a one hour training session that runs one day a week for six weeks.  All canines are required to be current on all vaccinations and in good health as well as their human partner.  Current veterinary treatment of shots/ vaccinations and physical exam records showing the dog to be in good overall health is required at the first day of class.


All human participants under the age of 15 must be supervised by their guardian and their participation is solely at the instructor's discretion.
