Trick Dog Training

Our founder, Captain Haggerty, wrote the first comprehensive trick training book with co-author, Carol Benjamin, in 1977. Dog Tricks is still a perennial best seller.

Haggerty Dog Training’s first trick class was taught in North Palm Beach, Florida, in 1997. We have always incorporated our classes with the information you need to get your pet into show business based upon Captain Haggerty’s book, How to Get Your Pet Into Show Business.

Our trick training students have appeared opposite Colin Farrell, Christopher Walken, Tina Fey, Robert DeNiro and starred in commercials for Chase Bank, Master Card, Bounty Paper Towels and so many more!

Available Courses

Our basic course is taught in a four week group class to help prepare you for more advanced and useful tricks such as sorting the laundry and finding your keys and cell phone. Our four week training class is designed to make your dog useful, fun and entertaining while developing your relationship with your once in a lifetime dog.

The four week course includes:



Hand signals

High five
