At Fantastic Fido’s, we offer a variety of training for dogs. We have private training, training packages, obedience classes, doggie day school, and Saturday socials. To learn more about our training options see the list below or give us a call at 816-364-0988, or view our upcoming class schedule.
A 10-day program where the dog stays with us and one of our trainers. We focus on crate training and potty training. We also go over leash manners, social skills, and any other problem behaviors. Consultation at pick up and two follow-up days (usually about 1-2 weeks later.)
Board & Train
A 2-4 week program focusing on off leash reliability. We also go over scheduling, crate training, and any problem behaviors. Consultation at pick up, follow up days (usually 1-2 weeks later) and lifetime assistance from our trainers. We also provide supplies and handouts if needed.
*Dogs must have completed one of our other training packages.
A 7-day program where the dog stays with us and includes leash walking, sitting, place, recall. We go over scheduling, crate training, potty training, and any problem behaviors. Consultation at pickup, and two follow up days (usually 1-2 weeks later.)
12 Day Turnaround
Our 12 Day Turnaround is a customized program geared towards adolescent & adult dogs who may be struggling with fear, under socialization, various forms of aggression or other issues. This program focuses on proper socialization, exposure to different environments, leash manners, crate training & identifying behavior issues. Our programs are built to develop a well behaved, responsible dog who knows how to make good decisions & who are focused on their pack. The outstanding characteristic of this, & all Fantastic Fido’s programs, are that we work closely with owners to insure success in the home as we know that the long term success of the dog depends on owners who are committed. Consultation at pick up and three follow-up days.
21 Day Turnaround
A 21-day program to address behavior concerns, establish foundational behaviors, and develop a well-trained dog. This program is particularly good for advanced behavior concerns in dogs of any age. Consultation at pickup and 4 follow-up days. Includes free Saturday Socials for 1 year.
Doggie Day School
Another training option offered at Fantastic Fido’s is Doggie Day School. During Doggie Day School, your dog is able to socialize with other dogs, and learn basic obedience throughout the day. Some skills include sit, down, place, and walking on a lead. This program is offered two days a week for six weeks, with owner lessons throughout the program.
Group obedience classes offer training for both owner and dog on foundational behaviors like leash walking, sit stay, recall and eliminating trouble behaviors like jumping and barking. These classes are held once per week for seven weeks and include one free day of daycare for each dog.
Maintenance Training Program
This monthly program helps to keep your dog polished and keep you accountable for training your dog. The dog spends a day in our facility “brushing up” on skills and can even learn new skills with one-on-one training. Owners receive a report card and video by email at the end of the day outlining progress, providing feedback, and suggesting homework. This program is a great value and an excellent way to keep your dog’s mind working!
At Fantastic Fido’s we love being able to take dogs out into the community while learning necessary skills. To do so, every Saturday we offer Saturday Social. During our Saturday Socials, we go to different locations throughout Saint Joseph. The dogs are able to do fun activities, such as agility, swimming, pack walks, and overall good dog citizenship. Sometimes we even learn tricks! To see our latest information on our socials, please visit our Facebook page.
