Dog trick training is a great way to create engagement with your dog or puppy by doing so you build a stronger relationship with your dog and will have a better behaved dog because of it. Giving your dog a job is crucial and with these types of obedience tricks you are making them work hard and therefore tiring them out which will also help with their behaviour as a tired dog is a well behaved dog.
