I'm not into titles. Why should I take this class?

Simple answer? It's fun. Your dog and you will learn cool tricks. You will bond with your dog and improve your relationship. And don't even get me started on what a great confidence-builder trick training can be for dogs!

 

I have no previous training experience.

That's cool because no previous training experience is needed.
