Demonstration Team Training

demo-team-bark-for-life
Advanced Level 2 handlers & dogs will be selected to join the Command Demo Dogs when they have passed the pre-requisite exercises. Demonstration Team training focuses on team-work between handler and dog. Handlers and dogs learn a specific repertoire of tricks such as rolling over, playing dead-dog, crawling along the ground, weaving through handlers legs, leaping through arms, hurdling groups of dogs, finding hidden objects, walking on hind legs, and much more. Demo’ training is a lot of fun, but requires strong commitment by the handler. This type of training is also a pre-cursor to gaining work with our Casting Department for advertisements.
