Teaching tricks to your dog stimulate their brain and offer your dog mental stimulation besides the physical activities that you engage your dog in.
Dog tricks build your dog’s confidence, focus, trust and bonding with you. Your dog will love to learn tricks as most dogs love to please you and get lots of reward in the process of learning dog tricks. Dog Tricks will complement the other activities like obedience, dog agility that you are engaging your dog in.
