Premium Dog Training Serving Northeast Ohio

It’s about the journey, not the destination.

Our Dog Training Mission

Fortunate Fido is dedicated to dog training using PAIN-FREE methods! We care about you and your dog and our goal is to train dogs using their natural abilities to work for us.

We have classes in Obedience, Rally, Tricks, Parkour, Cooperative Care, A.K.C. Canine Good Citizen, and A.K.C. Puppy Star. We also offer private lessons to help dogs that have reactivity, aggression, or fear.

We love helping dogs and their owners build confidence and develop beautiful, fun training relationships. You and your dog’s safety and peace of mind is our priority!


Does your dog need basic manners?

Do they have trouble greeting people politely?

Are you looking to socialize your new puppy?

Does your rescue dog need to learn to work around other dogs?

Do you want to learn a fun new sport?

Private Lessons

Is your dog ‘out of control’?

Does your dog bark and lunge on walks?

Does your dog jump & bark when people come over your house?

Is your dog unpredictable?

Is your dog afraid at the vet or groomer?


We offer classes for dogs of every age and skill level that teach your dog basic obedience as well as sport specific classes like Rally, Scent Work, and Parkour.

We also offer private lessons which let you pick and choose what you would like to work on. It could be as simple as learning more about your puppy or training impulse control, relaxation around other dogs, and more!


Fortunate Fido is known for our experienced dog trainers! Each of our trainers have had education and certification.

And of course more! Read our Trainers’ Bios and see for yourself!

It’s kind of hard to write this because what Ginger has done for me & my dog is so big it’s truly hard to fit into words and just overwhelming to think about. I guess it’s pretty much like the proverbial “pebble in the pond” or “ripple effect.” One in home visit with her led to so many positive changes.


I love what they do here. Amazing work with animals that is science based and effective. I would recommend them to anyone!
