Private One on One Dog Training Lessons

Fortunate Fido’s dog training lessons allow you to focus on your specific goals with your dog!

During these lessons you get to pick and choose what behaviors or issues you would like to focus on, which allows you to get a customized training plan for your dogs’ needs.

Our focus during these training lessons can be learning more about how to get a confident, happy puppy; training impulse control; learning foundations of parkour; teaching your dog to relax around other dogs; confidence building for the fearful dog; controlling aggressive behavior; teaching your dog not to jump on visitors; coming when called; potty training; and more!

Our training lessons utilize positive reinforcement training because “science has repeatedly shown that dogs learn better–with more beneficial, long-term results–when positive reinforcement training is used.”

In addition, training methodologies have an effect on dog stress levels as well! Research has shown that “Dogs trained using aversive stimuli, which involve punishments for incorrect behavior, show evidence of higher stress levels compared to dogs trained with reward-based methods,” which is why it’s important to utilize a dog-friendly method of training to ensure that both you and your dog have a fun time learning lasting new behaviors during training lessons!

Behavior Modification Private Dog Training Lessons

We also offer private training for dogs with issues such as fear, aggression, and/or frustration:

  • Fear – Fearful dogs are often dogs who shy away from you and or others; dogs who hide from visitors; dogs who bite and/or growl due to fear; and dogs who shut down at the vet or groomers.
  • Aggression – This includes dogs who guard resources including food, toys, space, their bodies, or people; dogs who bite or growl at family members or others; dogs who aggressively jump, mouth, and/or bark
  • Frustration – Frustrated dogs are often dogs who can be seen barking at windows, fence fighting with other dogs, jumping on visitors, or barking and lunging on leash towards people, dogs, or other animals.

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!
