Trick training is a great way to bond with your dog, help him integrate into your family, and keep him mentally and physically challenged. A wide range of tricks for every dog and skill level: beg, bow, say your prayers, find the remote, and more! Step-by-step instructions to guide the trainer; troubleshooting tips to solve problems; and "build-on" ideas that encourage taking a mastered skill to the next level, Complex tricks are broken down into smaller, easier-to-learn skills, with a brief overview of how the trick works and what to expect.
