Some dogs need more mental stimulation than others, and I believe trick training can be the answer for those brainy woofers that like to think. We work through the titles as set by In The Dog House DTC, starting with 'Rookie level' tricks like - give a paw, leave it and hand touch. Next is 'Uber Dude level' with crawling, peek a boo, which hand, speak to mention just a few, followed by 'Ninja level 'for wave, hop on, balance and catch, cross paws, and more.

When dogs get really good we have 'Guru standard' with go hide, skateboarding, sleepy, the can can and others. All tricks can be independantly assessed via videos and certificates gained to show achievement, or just done for the fun of it.

Trick classes are £56 for six sessions
