New Tricks

Animal researchers agree that pets benefit from trick training. Animals in the wild are forced to use problem-solving skills to hunt for food and shelter and to evade predators. While our pets live in relative luxury, they can also get bored; trick training tests their agile minds and strengthens their bond with their owner. Professional trainers agree that only positive rewards work to motivate learning, and training should always be fun, never stressful, for an animal.
