AKC Trick Class
Have some fun and learn some new tricks! We will spend 6 weeks working on expanding your dog’s behavior vocabulary. Dogs need new mental stimulation as the “same old same old” behaviors can lose appeal. Teaching tricks will expand their horizons and give them a new level of confidence in the way to interact with everyday objects and face everyday situations. This process can also rejuvenate the appeal of working with your dog, strengthening the bond by allowing you have fun and enjoy training sessions with your pet.
Ame Parton, CPDT-KA
I am so passionate about the relationship you have with your pets and how that relationship evolves! I started in the Pet Industry over 15 years ago and specialized and focused my time on Dog Training. I am certified a Nationally Certified Professional Dog Trainer- KA. My focus on the education of pet owners helps to strengthen the relationship you and your family have with your pets and helps create clear communication both to and from your pet.
Dog training has become my way of life. The first class I taught was in Yakima WA 2006, and since that day my goal has been to utilize my skills in teaching the human half of the equation how to better understand and work with their pets. Throughout my years of training, I have found by applying positive reinforcement training philosophies I can help create more trust and loving bonds between pets and their family. Many of the clients I have worked with over the years have helped shape me into the dog trainer that I am today.
My own pet Captain and I have bonded more every day while working on growing and developing our skills together. Starting as a rescue puppy, we have come a long way in our journey together. We have overcome obstacles of every kind including social skills, obedience, and mastering 3 levels of AKC Trick Titles.
I can’t wait to work with you and your pet! No matter the length of time in your relationship, I specialize in strengthening your bond. Whether you have a brand new puppy or have recently adopted an older pup from one of our local adoption agencies, I’m here to help through positive reinforcement training techniques!
