PROGRAMS


MEET AND GREET

Pricing: $30
  • Recommended for all situations.
  • 30 minute session to help you decide which training option is best for you and your dog.

1 HR TRAINING SESSION IN PERSON OR VIA ZOOM

$120/HR

A 1 hr training session can help get you and your dog back on track. It’s a jam packed informational session for the owner's benefit. The one hour session typically is laid out first by us listening to you about your situation, then providing immediate analytical advice, practical adjustments to owners current training program, and an education on proper methods and techniques that have been proven to benefit the situation. Also includes potty training education. Sometimes it’s just a small adjustment that is needed to get back on track! This is for the type of person that wants to spend the time working with their dog directly through multiple sessions each day. It’s up to you to apply the info you learn in the 1 hr session.

Multiple sessions available at a discounted price.

GROOMING DESENSITIZATION SERVICE

$70/DAY = $490 RECOMMENDED 7 DAYS
This service can help your dog become more comfortable with grooming services by gradually exposing your dog to situations they are uncomfortable with such as nail trims. This is an investment in their peacefulness while at the spa.

DAY TRAINING

Pricing: $65 per day

Has your dog completed a board and train program or a one-on-one program with us at Fetchers? This program is designed for your dog to get in some extra training for the day to sharpen up some known skills, curve some new unwanted behaviors, and have a productive day for your dog. You can leave your dog with experienced trainers to help keep their basic obedience to keep their mind sharp and build off of their already built foundation of obedience.

If your dog has completed a different board and train program from a different facility, or has any aggression behaviors, please set up a Meet & Greet with a trainer to determine the best options for your dog.

Five 1-on-1 Program

PRICING: $550

A one-on-one program can be very beneficial to both you and your dog. This program offers step by step help into understanding the necessary commands and forming a solid foundation of obedience. You will also be working on the three D’s: Distance, Duration, and Distraction, all of which allow you, and your dog, to live a harmonious life. It's really about enjoying the time you spend with them.

Keep in mind 5 sessions are recommended but more are available! These sessions will help teach you the fundamentals of basic obedience and will be 90% of the owners work and 10% of the trainers. You will have the opportunity to ask questions, do many exercises, and help curve many unwanted behaviors yourself.

1-on-1 sessions are not geared for heavy behavior modification for fearful/nervous dogs. Please book a Meet and Greet with a trainer at Fetchers for help with any of these particular behaviors. This will help us come up with a custom plan that will work best for your dog.

You will get 5 sessions that run 60 minutes each, once a week, for 5 consecutive weeks. This will also include the trainer giving you many different exercises and activities to do at home between the weeks.

      Kati Thom

      Hi! My name is Kati Thom and I am a professional dog trainer here at Fetchers! This photo is of Otto, my one-year old German Shepard, and I. I also have a Golden Retriever named Arlo. I have been training dogs for a total of four years and have been working at Fetchers for two years. I continue my education as a trainer by attending seminars and reading books. From a young age I have loved all dog breeds. I enjoy watching videos of owners training and teaching their dogs, which is what inspired me to want to become a professional dog trainer at a young age. A challenge that I face is time. If I had all the time in the world, I would help out every dog in the Fargo-Moorhead area. One of my biggest passions is participating in dog sports. Otto and I are currently training together to compete in our PSA-PDC, which is a bitework sport. My biggest goal as a professional trainer is to one day take in a couple of shelter dogs at our facility to help them learn basic obedience and prepare them for adoption. I am looking forward to meeting you and your dog!

      Our dog loves it here! The staff is extremely friendly and keeps you informed.
