Helping You and Your Dog Learn…Together

Understanding Fido enjoys working with dogs of all shapes, sizes and backgrounds. We have a 15-year relationship volunteering with, and fostering for, a local dog rescue. As such, we have a special spot in our hearts for rescue dogs. The force-free training sessions we provide are offered in-home, and in the community, for both puppies and adult dogs.

About the Business

Founded by self-proclaimed dog geek Amy Cranmer, Understanding Fido provides fun and effective training sessions that help puppies and adult dogs build their confidence, enjoy mental stimulation, and strengthen their bond with their humans.  Based out of Concord, N.C. Understanding Fido is able to travel to portions of Cabarrus, Mecklenburg, Stanly, Rowan and Union counties.  

What We Offer

We begin with a consultation to assess your dog’s needs. Training sessions are either private or semiprivate and occur within your home or the community. This is determined by your dog’s strengths, needs and comfort level. Our community field trips allow you and your dog to participate in “real life” events with our guidance and support. Virtual supports are also available.
