So far, my family has only had the initial evaluation for our dog. Our dog is a shiba inu, true to his breed- stubborn, territorial, difficult. Tony has given us great tips and was very attentive to our family's and dog's training needs. We look forward to see what kind of progress our dog makes!

I fostered a 5 month old Coonhound that was rescued from a neglectful home. She had very little social skills and a slew of medical issues. The immediate issue, after seeing to the medical, was her food aggression because I have two other dogs. After researching and speaking to a few other dog trainers, I chose Gray House Dog Training because Victoria (the trainer) felt each dog she trains is a separate case and she would evaluate her to see what training would best fit the individual dog. The other trainers had a set training system for all cases. She had my insecure, neglected pup sitting on command at her first session! Victoria interacted with and evaluated my pup before she came up with a plan on how to feed her to eliminate the aggression. And it worked! She also worked with her on a structured routine teaching her how to walk on a leash. We learned basic commands as well. Victoria taught me how to continue training on the days she was not here. It was crucial my pup was trained before she was adopted in order for her to make the transition to her forever home successful. Not only did Victoria teach my pup how to live as a part of a family, she taught her acceptance of love and trust. I am happy to say my Coonie is in her forever home happily living with two Coonie sisters! Politely sharing food and love! Victoria played a crucial part of giving this poor pup a second chance for a wonderful life.

Only had one session so far and we are highly impressed! We learned about our puppy and saw improvements during the first hour. We are excited to continue with our "homework" and look forward to our next session with her.

I had Rose take care of my dog Rocco for one week. Rose kept me informed on a daily basis and was an outstanding pet sitter for my dog. She took pictures and videos with her and Rocco playing. I felt very comfortable and I knew Rose could get the job done at 110%. I would definitely recommend Rose for any type of pet sitting.

About

If you practice three principals, • Remember, dog education begins with you. When you are in charge, your dog does not have to be. • Consistency is a requirement on which your dog depends. • Praise and love are the cornerstones that endear you to your dog and him to you. You will have a successful relationship with your dog. Dog training, for the most part, is all about making you and your dog happy. Club Fido trainers use dog-friendly methods, such as food rewards and positive reinforcement. We have 5 trainers on staff, each experienced in their area of expertise. Roseanne Foy trained service dog for many years. She can teach you how to remedy the above behaviors and many, many more in a group class (6 dogs or more) environment. She teaches our Puppy Obedience and Manners classes. Michele Gardner has been training for 10 years. Her Akita won a national event in Rhode Island. She also succeeded in being the number one Akita in the United States for two consecutive years. She is in AKC S.T.A.R. and Puppy classes. She does group, semi-private and private obedience classes, as well as Canine Good Citizen (CGC) classes and testing. Liz Fortna is our agility instructor. She is a knowledgeable agility instructor and a successful competitor with her dogs and handling the dogs of owners. You will experience the bond she develops with the dogs and acknowledge you need to succeed in agility. Beginner Agility is a pre-requisite in basic obedience training. This class will introduce you to the sport of agility at a more competitive level. We will teach your dog how to jump, negotiate the weave poles, teeter and contact equipment. This class will also teach you the beginning stages of maneuvering your dog through a course off leash. Advanced Agility is a pre-requisite in beginner agility class. In this class, you will build on the skills of the beginner class and learn more detailed handling to go around more complex courses. You will fine-tune your weave pole and contacts in this class as well. If you are looking to compete, then this is a great class. Jackie La Palaca run Doga Classes. Experience the ultimate stretching/relaxation dog and owner yoga from her. Doga is a form of yoga that incorporates your dog. Not only is this a great bonding time, it also promotes a healthy lifestyle. Jackie's soothing voice and manner enhances success of her classes. This is also great for those athletic dogs to keep them stretched and healthy. Joyce Bogar teaches our Cart/Draft class. This class is based on the NCA Draft Test Regulations and each step is covered by Joyce Bogar. A swash adjustable freight style harness is required for this class and can be ordered through Club Fido prior to the class. Joyce will help your dog adjust to the harness and cart. You will practice placing the harness correctly on your dog as well as making the connections to the cart. You and your dog will train in backing up, 90 degree turns, and negotiating narrow areas and gates. We also teach the tools needed for a 3-minute in sight and out of sight down stay.

    I have a cockapoo who is a year and a half old who needs some training. My husband and I try our best with him, but have trouble getting him to stop doing some bad behaviors. Is it too late to train him? He has problems with jumping up when he sees you and sometimes nips at your hands. He drags our carpets around from our kitchen. He barks at other dogs when we're out walking or he sees one, not in an aggressive way though. When we walk him on a leash, he constantly pulls. (Sometimes making it as he is walking us) He begs while we eat. My husband and I can't get him to stop doing these things, and are in need of some assistance. I'm sure there are more things that I can't think of, but wanted to start out with this. Is it to late? Hoping to hear from you soon! Have a great evening.
