Canine Fitness, Focus, and Fun
This is a great specialty class! You won’t find this class offered anywhere but at Team Fido! Over this 4 week class we will work on building focus and attention on the handler, and teaching your dog calm behaviors. Each week I will help you to teach your dog a new obedience cue, introduce different food puzzles, and learn a new trick. We will introduce balance equipment, working on some conditioning for your dog to build core strength and hind end awareness. Your dog will also be able to work through an indoor obstacle course. Lots of training in a fun format! This class is limited to 4 dogs. Contact me to register, these spaces will go fast!

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 $25 (hst included) **Contact me to register!**

Puppy Kindergarten – Space limited, contact me to register!
For puppies 9 wks to 16 wks. (Small breed puppy playgroup is on Sundays at 11 am)
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. Help your puppy learn about life in a safe, positive environment.
Bring your questions! We will talk about puppy nipping and house training along with any other issues you may be having with your new puppy! This 40 min class is divided into an introduction to food puzzles, play breaks, learning some new cues like eye contact/focus, hand targeting and discussion.
Proof of vaccines is required! Call or email to register.

Life Skills 101 (Obedience)
For puppies from 16 wks and up, and adult dogs who need a refresher!
The first thing we work on is attention on focus on the handler. This is so important! Then we build all of our other behavior cues on this…sit, down, stand, wait and stay. We want your dog to learn to focus on you, as all good things come from you! We will also work on building a strong recall, loose leash walking and no jumping. Newly added to the class is an introduction to mental enrichment games and food dispensing toys along with how to teach your dog to drop it and leave it, which are both extremely important! I will teach some tricks, and add in an intro to an agility jump and tunnel 🙂 Fun times at Team Fido!! Message me to register! This class is limited to 4 dogs.

Time to have fun with your dog, while working on focus and handling. We will introduce:

- walking on narrow surfaces/teeter/ladder
- hind end awareness exercises
- balance and core strength exercises
All obstacles are low to the ground and safe for any age/breed/size of dog. All exercises are done on leash and walking. This class is great for fearful or reactive dogs, these types of exercises help build confidence and a strong working relationship with the handler.

I will walk you through all areas then you can work through at your own pace. LIMIT OF FOUR DOGS FOR THIS CLASS.

“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!”
