Pedestal Training Workshop


One Day Workshop

Do More With Your Dog! is excited to bring you the only Pedestal Training certification course. See for yourself what a difference pedestal training makes! Kyra Sundance is a leading proponent and expert on Pedestal Training, and has long shared her passion for this training method at seminars around the world. All props and meals supplied for you. Free gift bag full of books, DVDs, training tools, and more! -$299



Our goal is to help each person at the level that they are at. You will not be singled nor judged on the performance of your dog; in fact, many trainers choose to bring their more difficult dog.



Why Pedestals?

Pedestal training is used to manage behavior (by providing a "home base"), and to improve training (by improving focus, drive, and precision). It is invaluable in working with multiple dogs, and in improving motivation and work ethic. Work directly with Kyra Sundance, world-renowned trainer and author of bestselling 101 Dog Tricks, to learn the academic knowledge and hands-on techniques of successful, positive dog training. Make your dog happy!

Workshop Testimonials

  • Kyra Sundance, I just wanted to thank you for a fantastic 3-day weekend. Your Stunt Dog and Canine Conditioning Coach workshops were fun, engaging, and very informative! I've been training dogs for over 40 years, but I was still able to learn something from both of these workshops! Thank you for all of your time, commitment to the sport, your friendship, and your generosity. The fact that you spend so much of your personal time helping so many people, in such a positive and energetic way, just shows how much you truly care for the sports of Trick Dog and Stunt Dog.

  • As I went to her seminar. It changed directions of my training programs. She is like solid positive energy. If you can't come away from her with ideas you need to go back to the start. Because she is great at what she does. She is more real then most trainers I have been too. Kyra thank you
