Ridgeside K9 Colorado Springs

Ridgeside K9 Colorado Springs believes there is no “one size fits all” approach to dog training. Each dog and owner are evaluated on what training they need and then a training package is customized to meet their needs. We use a mix of marker training, free shaping, and classical and operant conditioning to establish real-world, measurable, and reliable obedience and control. Clear communication and expectations are the key to a happy life with your dog.

Brady is the owner and head trainer of Ridgeside K9 Colorado Springs.  He has spent the past 16 years in the Special Operations community as a medic and K9 handler/trainer.  After a few years of being a K9 handler, he became more involved in the training aspect and began running the training program for his unit’s working dogs.  Brady has spent countless hours training, preparing and deploying dogs in an operational environment and his experiences have shown him the importance of obedience and control in dogs, whether they’re working, sporting or simply enjoying life as a pet.

Brady has been training puppies and adult dogs for detection for the past six years.  He currently breeds working Labradors for detection, search and rescue, hunting and service roles.  This experience introduced him to a variety of trainers and led him to a career in private pet training, particularly boarding and training.

In addition to training dogs, Brady teaches canine medical courses for police, military, trainers, and pet dog owners.  He has worked with over 100 different agencies and taught courses all over the world.

Ridgeside K9 Colorado Springs serves ALL of Colorado with training needs. Our service areas include Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Denver, Fort Collins, and surrounding areas.

Are you a pet parent looking for the best puppy training classes or pup programs for potty training? Are you hoping to enjoy loose leash walking with your pooch but have an extremely busy schedule? You may be looking for a pup training program that includes a training collar. Whatever the case, at Ridgeside K9, based in Colorado Springs, CO, we offer a wide range of pet training solutions. We can train your dog to obey basic cues, such as:

  • Basic commands (sit, stay, down, etc.)
  • Door manners
  • Leash manners
  • and much more

We currently offer immersive home-based board and trains and plan to open a facility in the near future to expand our training services, including daycare and classes.


Training The Dog

First step in training is teaching a clear communication system to the dog. We have to have a way to clearly communicate with dogs what we want and don’t want from them. We will teach them obedience that works anywhere! Doesn’t matter where you go, whether it’s a busy park or grandma’s house, our system works!

Training The Owner

The second and most important step to training is training the owners! At graduation, we spend 3 hours educating you the owner! We teach, show you and coach you. We want you to learn how to properly communicate with your pup so you can build a stronger relationship.

Maintenance Training

Here at Ridgeside K9, we offer various ways to keep up with your training to be able to include lifetime support. We hold group refresher training for all prior clients. Also, we offer pack walks and have a Facebook family group to be able to ask questions and connect with other owners.
