Dog Training Classes 

Research shows that getting your dog into classes has life long benefits in terms of preventing behavioral problems, so whether you have a newly rescued dog, a new puppy, or a dog who you just want to do something fun with, Fortunate Fido has dog training classes for all of your needs!

Our classes help you and your dog learn to work around real world distractions so that you can be a better team when you need it most!

Keep an eye on our class list for new offerings. You can find it below or here!

For issues such as aggression and reactivity, please email us about scheduling a private lesson with one of our trainers instead. 

What dog training class should we start with?

The best classes to start out with are our Puppy Fundamentals class for dogs under 5 months or our Fido Fundamentals – Manners class for dogs 5 months up to 2 years. Both of these classes cover essential new dog issues such as jumping, attention, and walking issues. You can see more information about what these classes cover and eligibility below!

Puppy Fundamentals & Fido Fundamentals – Manners

Our manners classes are six weeks long and on the same day and time each week. The first week is for PEOPLE ONLY to go over the class setup, what to bring, and what to expect, as well as to go over how to use a clicker! The following five weeks, you bring your dog and work together to learn new behaviors such as:

  • Attention around distractions
  • Polite greetings
  • Confidence
  • Sit
  • Down
  • Handling
  • Loose leash walking

Our Puppy Fundamentals class is for dogs five months and under.

Our Fido Fundamentals – Manners class is for dogs 5 months to 2 years.

For dogs over 2 years, we require a private lesson before enrolling in a class.

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!
