Level of Difficulty:   Intermediate and up, great for tricks classes
Items Needed: The letters (you may print them from the tab at the top)
How to Play:   Each student picks one letter from the dog bowl. Your assignment is to think of a new cue or trick that starts with that letter and teach it to your dog. You will perform this trick for the class. It should be something new that the dog does not already know. If you are having trouble thinking of a cue or teaching it to your dog, please be sure to email me for help. You may use one of the suggestions written with the letter or think up a new one. Most of all, be creative and HAVE FUN!
Instructor's Notes: Print a copy of this page for each student.   A great time to use this game is two weeks before the last class. Then at the next class they can have a few minutes to practice or for your help and then at the last class they can perform their trick for the class.
