Our Philosophy

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. We believe that each dog is not one size fits all and every dog is very different. You will work side by side with our Professional Dog Trainer with each step making many decisions for your dog to help both you and your dog work as a team. This results in more freedom on and off leash while educating owners on how to build trust in this freedom to benefit the 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. 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 everything canine whether young and old dogs alike on general obedience, aggression, anxiety, jumping up, running off, 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 into your home. We look forward to serving you and your dog!

Once you have reviewed all of our training options,  you can fill out a submission form. From there, our trainer will review the submission form within 72 hours and set up a free consultation over the phone with you to talk about all of your problem areas and your training goals. Our trainer will help come up with a custom plan that will fit best for you and your dog.

*Our training programs do NOT include: potty training or service dog training*


Kati Thom

Hi! My name is Kati Thom and I am the head Professional Dog Trainer here at Fetchers! This photo is of my one-year old German Shepherd, Otto, and I. I also have a Golden Retriever, Arlo and an eight-month old black lab, Striker. 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. I grew up with hunting dogs all my life that were very dog and human aggressive. When I got my first dog, I knew I did not want my dogs to be that way. From a young age, I loved all dog breeds. I enjoyed watching videos of owners training and teaching their dogs very intricate and advanced tricks, which inspired me to become a professional dog trainer at such a young age. A challenge that I face from time to time is not being able to help every dog. If I had all the time in the world, I would help out every dog in the Fargo-Moorehead 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 the facility to help them learn basic obedience and prepare them for adoption. I am looking forward to meeting you and your dog!
