Training

At Fetchers we provide a complete package of services to grow and peak the relationship between dog and owner by providing dogs with great obedience. This results in more freedom on and off leash while educating owners on how to build trust in this freedom to benefit the owner and dogs quality of life. We have been training dogs since 2010 and love to hear from our dog owners the differences they see in their dogs behavior after a training session or stay. Testimonials are at the bottom of this page! Our Fetchers family tag teams the training efforts to maximize the amount of sessions per day and to offer both a male and female perspective. At Fetchers, we train young and old dogs alike on general obedience, aggression, anxiety, jumping up, running off, potty training problems, hunting skills, and more! We use a balanced approach of both positive and negative reinforcement with repetition and well placed patience to achieve this patterned successful behavior. This ensures a smooth transition to your home. We look forward to serving you and your dog!
