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!  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!

***IF THE WEATHER IS CRAPPY THE WALK MAY BE CANCELED. ALWAYS CHECK BACK ON THE HOME PAGE OF THE WEBSITE AND FACEBOOK PAGE PRIOR TO THE WALK FOR ANY CANCELATIONS***

Cost is $30 (hst included)  **Contact me to register!**

NEED HELP WITH WALKING BEFORE ATTENDING A GROUP WALK?

Book one or a couple of 30 min private training sessions to learn how to teach your dog to walk without pulling. Then you can attend some TEAM WALKS to practice your new skills!


Puppy Kindergarten Class – Space limited, contact me to register!

For all puppies 9 wks to 16 wks. 

Socialization is about introducing puppies to not only other puppies but new people, new environments and different things like interesting surfaces to walk and climb on. For the first 16 weeks it’s important for puppies to learn about sounds, smells, and the environment around them without fear. We focus on building confidence around other humans and dogs, and developing a great bond with their guardians.

Help your puppy learn in a safe, positive environment. This 40 min session is a balance of Q & A, intro to puzzle toys, working through an obstacle course and some off leash play.

Proof of vaccines is required! Email to register.

  • Class runs for 40 min
  • Registration is required,
  • Dates must be prebooked and prepaid. For example, if your puppy is 10 wks old and you would like to attend 3 classes, your fee would be $75. If your puppy is 12 wks old and you would like to attend 4 classes your fee would be $100.

SMART DOG – Fun Obedience class

For puppies from 16 wks and up, and adult dogs who need a refresher! 

The first thing we work on is having fun with your dog. Your dog will focus on you more if you are fun and positive! It’s so much easier to teach or refresh the basics if our dogs are focused on us. I introduce mental enrichment games and food dispensing toys to help lower arousal and get your dog using their brain. I cover hand targeting, sit/down/settle, drop and leave, wait and stay, and recall.  Every week I will teach a new trick and introduce obstacles and agility equipment to build confidence. We are moving away from “traditional obedience” and focusing more how to provide a great relationship with your dog, meeting their needs both mentally and physically.

Fun times at Team Fido!! Puppies must be at least 4 mths of age to start this class.

Total with hst is $169.50 for the 4 wk session

This class is limited to 4 dogs. Class runs for 45 min. Dogs must be wearing a harness and six foot leash.

Canine Fitness, Body and Brain

Private, one on one training sessions at the Team Fido training hall to focus on your dog’s physical and mental wellbeing.

Physical fitness and conditioning helps to protect your dog against illness and injury, along with building self confidence. We will introduce conditioning equipment, work on building muscle strength and confidence on unstable surfaces along with hind end awareness exercises.

Mental stimulation enriches our dog’s lives by giving them something meaningful and challenging to do. Engaging your dog’s brain helps to alleviate boredom and frustration, reduce anxiety and stress, and stop problem behaviors like barking or chewing. New food puzzles and games will be introduced for your dog to learn to use his brain to problem solve. Improve your dog’s health and wellness, sign up for some sessions today!

“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!”
