Trick Training

As a Certified Trick Dog Instructor (CDTI), I’m delighted to be able to assist pet owners in achieving trick titles. Trick training is not only fun, but it also strengthens your bond with your pet and provides necessary mental and physical exercise.

Trick witnessing for titles, as well as coaching, can be done virtually so this service is open to anyone who is interested. Cats are welcome too! For more details click here.
