Tricks & Sports
Teaching your dog tricks or getting involved in dog sports are two great ways to bond with your dog and to ensure that he is getting the physical and mental stimulation he needs.
Dog sports have something for everyone. Regardless of your dog’s breed, age, and what his motivations are, you can certainly find a dog sport that works for you. Dog sports range from fast-paced sports like agility and flyball to more thinking-oriented sports like canine freestyle and scent work, so you do not have to have a particular type of dog to participate in a dog sport.
