Meet the Trainer

My name is Carla Dorpinghaus, owner and trainer of Fun with Fido Dog Training. I am a dog lover and passionate about the work I do with dogs and their owners. I have an extensive background in applied behavioral modification which has allowed me to achieve a high skill set in all the nuances of dog training. I enjoy working with all breeds of all ages with any type of behavior. When I am not training dogs, I enjoy spending time with my family and my two favorite canine companions, Ellie Mea and Gus. I am very excited to get you on a pathway to creating a successful dog training experience and and teaching you to teach your dog to be best they can be.

At Fun with Fido Dog Training, I know you are the kind of pet owner who wants to have a well-behaved dog that is affectionate and a loyal companion to the whole family. When we welcome a pet into our home they become an instant part of our family. We become frustrated and discouraged when our new pet suddenly becomes destructive, won’t listen, or worst of all, bites or becomes aggressive. Lacking the tools, training, and time, pet owners feel they have no choice but to relinquish their pet or worse, euthanization.

At Fun with Fido Dog Training, I have the knowledge and expertise to tackle any problem you are experiencing with your dog. I only use evidence-based training techniques that are designed to eliminate any unwanted behavior, shape good behavior, and motivate your dog to respond on command. My training programs will help your dog build confidence while promoting a strong lifelong bond with the whole family.

I understand that many dog trainers charge astronomical fees for training packages and programs that just don’t work. I won’t try to sell you gimmicky training programs that are based on quantity. My approach is simple. I give my clients value by providing effective dog training at reasonable rates. Clients never pay for training sessions that they don’t use. After your dog has completed a customized training program with me, I will follow up. Your experience and feedback are important to me, so checking in with clients is an essential part of my training process. I am always happy to answer any questions and offer my recommendations at no additional charge. So what are you waiting for?
