    15 Fun Tricks To Teach Your Dog | Denver Dog Training

    Posted March 30, 2017 By in Dogs & Family, Training Your Puppy With | 4 Comments

    Everyone knows that dogs need physical exercise, but did you know that mental exercise is just as, if not more, important? It’s true! Not only do dogs need mental stimulation in order to stay sharp but regular training keeps dogs happy. There is also the added benefit that training your dog regularly results in a stronger bond and increased trust between you and your dog. Who doesn’t want that? 

    For obedience training, we highly recommend that you enroll your puppy or dog into a well reviewed, relationship focused dog training class, like our Delightful Dog (Level 1) or Devine Dog (Level 2) classes. This is because we believe that obedience training is an essential part of raising a dog, and the skills taught in these classes are a great way to help keep your dog safe and under their excitement threshold.  

    But we also believe that continuing your training after graduation is equally important. So here is a list of some really fun tricks that you and your dog will love learning together!

    • Training sessions should be short 5-15 minute sessions
    • Pick a reward marker and use it consistently
    • Always try to end them on a good note, before your dog fatigues
    • Make sure to use a high reward treat that excites your dog
