About our Group Classes 

Fetch Canine is passionate about teaching humans how to train and raise their puppies and dogs, to be calm, happy, and well-mannered using positive reinforcement training methods.

We design our dog training classes to be force-free, fear-free, pain-free, caring, and safe for dogs, both emotionally and physically.  

We do not use training methods that are physically or psychologically intimidating.

Our certified dog trainers are CPDT-KA (Certified Professional Dog Trainers-Knowledge Assessed) through the CCPDT (Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers).

Reactive Rover

Black Dog

Walking a dog with reactivity issues can be stressful making walks unenjoyable. In our 5-week Reactive Rover class we have two main goals:

1.    To provide owners with critical handling skills so that they are confident and equipped to deal with the triggers and challenges that may arise in their everyday environment

2.    To provide the dogs with the coping skills necessary to exist more comfortably in the presence of triggers that previously provoked heightened levels of fear, anxiety, and reactivity. 

This class is limited to four dogs.  This class is for leash/object reactivity, NOT dogs who have aggression towards other dogs/people.
