Novice Trick Dog Class
Intermediate Trick Dog Class
Young or senior, pure bred or mixed breed, any dog will enjoy trick training! Trick training is one of the best ways to build a fun, engaging, loving relationship with your dog. Dogs of any age and breed(s) can participate in tricks. During classes, a variety of reward based training methods will be used to elicit behaviours. Trick training not only builds your relationship, it provides much needed mental stimulation and can increase your dog’s confidence and self-esteem.
As a Certified Trick Dog Trainer, Yvonne Ferguson will help you learn over 25 tricks (including Say Your Prayers, Roll-Over, Hoop Jump, Take A Bow, Crawl and many more!) that you can practice anywhere and anytime. Help your dog learn to focus in all situations, build a strong bond with your dog or just impress your friends. All tricks can be modified to you or your dog's specific needs, skills or personality which will increase his/her success and fun!
Upon completing the Novice Trick Dog Class, dogs and handlers can qualify for their NTD (Novice Trick Dog) title from the international Do More With Your Dog organization. For an additional fee, Yvonne will witness your title and submit all the paperwork and payment for you! All you have to do it sit back and enjoy the wonderful tricks your dog has learned, while waiting for your title certification to come into your inbox.
Once a dog has completed the Novice Trick Dog class or received their Novice Trick Dog title they are able to join our Intermediate Trick Dog class to work toward earning their ITD (Intermediate Trick Dog) title! Yvonne is available to handlers to complete the Novice Trick Dog title application for dogs that already have the required Novice Trick Dog tricks! More advanced dogs can join the Intermediate Trick Dog class with a brief assessment completed.
Effective January 1, 2020, CKC will be recognizing titles from Do More With Your Dog!®.
Trick dog appeals to all dogs and is both a fun sport and a great bonding experience with a dog and their owner/handler. The CKC is thrilled to adopt this Title Recognition Program beginning in January 1, 2020. In addition, any titles earned from Do More With Your Dog!® prior to this initial launch date will be eligible for a CKC Title Recognition as well. The CKC Office will be accepting applications on or after January 1, 2020.
“Whether he’s young or old, athletic or lazy, quick-witted or dumb as a rock—he’s YOUR dog, and his success need only be measured in YOUR eyes.”

We have created and implemented strict health and safety protocols for classes including social distancing guidelines, regular disinfection, mandatory masks and more. With uncertainty in the future we want to keep you and your family healthy. Should the government of Ontario increase restrictions once again and force us to close, our in-person group classes switching to a virtual classroom. We use a virtual classroom to 'meet' in a safe way. The class is run live and you are able to see, communicate and see demonstrations in real time. You still receive all the class handouts and we are here to support you even outside of class! Classes are fun, interactive and enjoyable; and the best part, your dog can be highly successful with dedicated attention on you. It is also important to understand that if vaccine passports are required by the government in the future during dog training classes, all students will need to show valid proof of vaccination. Those unable to provide proof of vaccination will need to be transferred to virtual classroom.
