"Do More With Your Dog!" is the motto of founder Kyra
Sundance. Whether through sport, tricks, or companionship, she encourages the
integration of your dog into more areas of your life. Dogs have a way of making
the activities we share with them more fun, and by giving them training, we allow
them to participate in more areas of our life. Earn your Trick Dog title
or your Instructor certification; do live shows as a member of the All-Star Performance
Dog Team; or attend a Dog Sports Camp. Come join the fun!
Founded by Kyra Sundance
Founded in 2005 by Kyra Sundance, Do More With Your
Dog!® was originally
a dog training curriculum program which focused on teaching tricks in a step-by-step
method utilizing positive reinforcement techniques. This curriculum was so popular
amongst trainers, that Kyra wrote a book based on these techniques. 101 Dog Tricks
became an international bestseller, and has been translated into 15 languages.
Kyra followed with many more books and DVDs which expanded upon the original
Do More With Your Dog!® curriculum.
With the fast growing interest in dog
tricks and positive training techniques, Kyra recognized the need to have a certification
