Does your dog do tricks? Tricks are fun and entertaining for you and your dog. These sessions start with a practice and coaching session for you and your dog and end in evaluation for the title. Do the tricks at any of the levels or more than one level.
AKC now offers a title called TRICK DOG that you and your pal can achieve easily and get to perform your favorite tricks for an appreciative audience at the same time. Trick Dog days fall under our Canine Good Citizen program and dog/handler performance is evaluated by our own licensed evaluators.
We also offer 6 week trick training classes if you want to learn tricks included in the list as well as others. See our listing under Dog Tricks and Performance Skills.

When Dee rescued Farley, a Border Collie who "had issues", her journey into animal behavior began. Dee was motivated to learn quickly in order to manage Farley and keep him safe. They attended the classes and private consultations offered by Train the Bay—Farley showed progress, which further motivated Dee to obtain her CPDT-KA certification. Today, Dee teaches dog training classes and her dog demonstrates for the class. Dee credits Farley for being a wonderful teacher.
As the Lead Trainer at Train the Bay, Nancy spent the last three decades dedicated to her training work, to developing the program, and to helping Bay Area dogs and their families. In addition to the hundreds of students she teaches every year, she is the voice behind Berkeley Humane’s free Behavior Advice Hotline, and she evaluates and supports the training of shelter dogs at Berkeley Humane.
