All dog owners know their pooch has star power. Now they can prove it, by teaching Fido these show-stopping feats worthy of the Big Top. Rick Martin—trainer of The Tricky Dogs—offers all the informative guidance needed to transform eager pups into canine dynamos. Geared toward dogs that have already had some solid basic obedience training (sit, down, stay), these applause-gathering acrobatics include such time-tested classics as crawling, standing on the hind legs, spinning around, and jumping through a hoop. And for something really amazing: have Rover ride on a skateboard! (Don’t forget to have your four-legged friend bow to the adoring crowd afterwards.) Throughout, pictures of famous dog performers and colorful circus graphics and images provide inspiration.
