Ridgeside K9 employs numerous active and retired police K9 trainers and military veterans that now specialize in amazing obedience and control on household pets. Ridgeside K9 believes there is no “one size fits all” approach to dog training. Each dog is and owner are evaluated for issues, goals and wants. We customize each training package using a mix of marker training, free shaping, classical and operant conditioning to establish real world, measurable and reliable obedience and control. We always push for the dog to achieve clarity of task. Showing a dog, a new way of “being” and the owners a new way of communicating.
