Teach your dog tricks for fun and bonding!
Today I am so excited to be talking to world renowned professional stunt dog show performer Kyra Sundance. I first saw Kyra on the Animal Planet show Pet Stars with her champion, world famous dog Chalcy and I was just blown away!
She and her dogs have performed on several TV shows, including The Tonight Show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, E.T., Worldwide Fido Awards, Animal Planet’s Pet Star and more, as well as the NBA Halftime Show.
Kyra has been nationally ranked in competitive dog sports and has also served as a trainer for dog actors on TV and movie sets.
She is an author with several books about dog tricks and training under her belt, including international best seller “101 Dog Tricks” which has been translated into 15 languages! Her most recent (at the time of our interview) is “101 Ways To Do More With Your Dog“, which really embraces her core tagline of DO MORE WITH YOUR DOG.
We discuss in our interview why it is so important to spend time with your dog, how you can make learning fun and what the benefits are for both of you!
We also touch on:
- How Kyra got into teaching dog tricks and performing
- How to deal with frustrations when training (they will happen!)
- Kyra’s forever dog, Chalcy
- Making mistakes and correcting them
- The #1 thing you need to know when teaching your dog tricks
- Stories from working with canine talent on movie/TV sets
Kyra also talks about her Trick Dog Titling Program, where people can earn the rank of Novice, Intermediate, Advance or Expert. If you’re interested in exploring this program, visit her website.
