Your dog mastered puppy class and has her basic obedience down. She can 'sit', 'stay', 'down', 'roll over', 'speak', 'bang and you're dead', and all sorts of other cute fun tricks. You, your dog, and your friends and family are all getting sick of your trick routine, and so you start to wonder if maybe you can teach your dog some of the advanced tricks you've seen dogs do on TV or at the circus. Maybe your 'sit, stay, down' routine doesn't wow your friends anymore, but a backflip or having your dog get you a soda from the fridge sure would.
If you and your dog have mastered basic obedience and are looking for something new and exciting, advanced tricks may be for you.
