Classes

Participating in my classes will help strengthen the bond between you and your dog.

All training through Team Fido Dog Training is positive and reward based. I believe that training should be fun and enjoyable for both you and your dog – learning is much easier when it’s fun!

“Our family has recently brought a new lab puppy into our home, which brings our animal count to three dogs and four cats. Cindy came and spoke with us prior to bringing our puppy home. She had us write a list of questions prior to her visit. Her insight was incredibly valuable – she helped us to see the world through our new puppy’s eyes, and also from the perspective of our two other dogs. We will be taking “Marley” to Cindy’s puppy classes, and will definitely be consulting with her as we move ahead, and face new challenges with Marley. She offers a wealth of knowledge, and doable, practical suggestions. She cares deeply about animals, and has become a trusted resource for us. We are very grateful for her assistance!”

Some Tips

“Only feed half your dog’s dinner so he will be a bit hungry and more attentive. Bring high value soft treats for your dog. High value to HIM….could be cheese, could be chicken wieners…I use beef lung and Dognation Chicken and Beef treats. Your dog should be wearing a flat collar or harness, and a 6 ft. leash. Please NO choke collars, prong collars, e-collars or flexi leashes. You should be wearing comfortable clothes and shoes.”

Team Walk!

Team Walk

Sunday Team Walk is a group walk with our dogs, to work on focus and attention on the handler, loose leash walking and ignoring distractions.The entire walk is like a training class, every time a dog/human/stroller/motorized wheelchair/skier/bike rider (whatever a dog may be reactive too) approaches all we all move off to the side, working on focus and attention on the handler. I work individually with each dog as needed, often walking the dog for the owner to work on specific behaviors. We also add in some parkour style training teaching “paws up” on park benches, rocks, and other obstacles. Many of these dogs can’t be close to other dogs at all on a normal walk. This isn’t a “stroll in the park” walk 🙂 This is a training walk.! Cost is $20 for the hour long walk. NO shock/choke/prong collars. NO flexi’s! Your dog should be wearing a flat collar or harness and six foot leash. Come out and try one of the new Freedom No Pull Harnesses that I now have available!

Cost is $20 for the hour.

Upcoming dates:

Sun May 20, 1030 am

I will walk you through all areas then you can work through at your own pace. This is a drop in style class, so you can do one or as many as you like.
