Learning tricks teaches a dog to expand his communication repertoire and builds confidence.  Owners will master the foundation of trick training including shaping and capturing behavior, targeting, and platform work.  Attendees will pick a trick from Kyra Sundance's list for the novice trick dog title and perfect the behavior over the course of the class and show off at the last class.
