One of those main variables is the amount of time dedicated to training outside of class and private lessons.
At Fetch! Dog Training , we aren’t just training your dog, we are training you to train your dog so that everyone succeeds for the long term.
In order to see real results, you must commit to training your dog consistently throughout the week.
We will work together to set realistic goals for training. Remember, even a few minutes of training a day can make a big difference.
