Does it seem like your dog has the memory of a goldfish, lasting only a couple of seconds? Do you struggle on walks with keeping your dog away from food on the ground or keeping them from lunging to greet other people or dogs?
Do you find walks with your dog or having guests over stressful? Does your dog bark and lunge at people or other dogs outside? Does your dog bark and make your guests uncomfortable? Take back your fun relationship with your dog in this 8 week class.
Sick of feeling like your arm is being pulled out of its socket while walking your pup? Do you look longingly upon friends and neighbors while they take a relaxing stroll with their pooch? This can be your future! In this 6 week class, we find fun and engaging ways to make walks more fun and less stressful. We’ll practice techniques inside and take the show on the road out in the neighborhood to be sure you feel prepared. Get started with more fun and less pulling today!

This six week course will set the stage for you and your dog to have a good time no matter what you choose to do afterwards!
Dog Nosework Training Classes
Nosework is a fun and fast growing sport where dogs search for the smell of essential oil. The training for this sport is similar to drug or bomb detection dog training. The most amazing thing about this sport is how confident dogs become after learning and doing nosework!
Did you have a great time in Intro to Nosework and you’re ready to continue building on your skills and teamwork with your dog? Ongoing Nosework is for you. We’ll pick up where we left off in the last class, and start to add more difficult hides, solidifying an indication, outdoor searches, and searches that are blind for the handler. Continue to build your dogs confidence and your teamwork as you harness the all-powerful dog nose!
Private Dog Training Classes
Need more personal attention than a group class allows? Schedule a one-on-one lesson at our office to address any behavioral problem you are having. This option is perfect for dogs who cannot attend a group class for any reason or you would like more personal attention than the class environment may allow. Our office allows a safe space for your dog to work through any struggles and learn new behaviors that set everyone up for success.
Need to work on some challenging behaviors with your dog, but can’t seem to find the time? Having a hard time fitting a class into your busy schedule? Let us come to you and work on your training goals while you’re at work!
Drop Off Training: PAL - Play and Learn
Fido offers weekday drop-off puppy training that goes beyond the typical on-leash style dog training class. We call it Play and Learn (PAL) and it’s a science based canine training approach founded on the understanding that the more we compassionately socialize, train and condition puppies during puppyhood the better off they will be as adults.
Age: 2.5 - 6 Months Old
