Dog trick training is one of the best ways for dog owners and dogs to have fun together, to build trust and confidence, and to show friends and family how smart dogs really are! New videos from Andrea Arden Dog Training and Howcast make it fun and easy.
These 44 new videos are now available from Howcast on their site, YouTube channel and through other distribution network platforms. The guide, How to Teach Your Dog Tricks, features dog tricks including: getting a beer, opening a door, shaking hands, waving goodbye, dancing and much more. In 2003, Howell Book House published, Andrea Arden’s Little Book of Dog Tricks.
In addition to being loads of fun, there are practical benefits to dog trick training. It provides mental exercise by asking dogs to become creative thinkers and to learn and understand what owners want. It can also be a valuable source of physical exercise, improve attention, basic manners and obedience and may help to prevent and solve some dog behavior problems.
