“Trick training is definitely the best way to bond with your dog. My Aussies and I compete in agility, obedience and rally, but I have learned more about them and how they learn from trick training. They also use tricks as therapy dogs to entertain others and relieve stress. I recommend trick training to anyone wanting a closer bond with their dog.”
