Tricks are for Dogs!

Introducing dogs to new tricks can be a daunting and often frustrating task. As dog owners, we want our furry friends to be as obedient and skilled as possible at following instructions. Our dogs are members of our families; as such, we want our pets to be happy, healthy and loved.

The Tricks

Meet Ty

Ty is a 4-year-old 5-pound black-and-tan Chihuahua. He has a sweet, yet strong willed personality and will do almost anything for attention. Ty is the mascot of the site and tends to invent his own versions of many of the tricks presented. Come with us on our fun (and, at times frustrating) journey to teach your doggy best friend how to sit, stay and lie down.
