Puts your dog’s obedience in the express lane under the care of our abled and qualified pet trainers.
Our trainers have worked with thousands of dogs of various breeds. With that experience, we understand how to customize training programs for the needs of you and your dog. We take the time to get to know your dog and what training style works best for them. Just like with people, every dog learns differently and we adjust to your dog. No cookie-cutter training programs. Our trainers truly bond with your dog and care about its success.
Two & Three-Week Adult Board and Train Packages (5 months and over)
We focus on – leash obedience, place work, off-leash recall, and cover all aspects of livability, control, and environmental neutrality. Often behavioral issues all come down to confusion and the dog having no idea what the desired behavior is. Teaching the dog impulse control and self-capping drive and teaching the dog how to communicate is critical for long-term success.
Our consultations are free, so let’s discuss the best outcome for your four-legged buddy. Dog aggression is a difficult problem, but most certainly can be solved!
This program is for the owner who wants their dog to learn the basics and foundation of dog training. This program will focus on loose leash heeling, impulse control, and the basic commands of recall, sit, down, and place. In this program we will take your dog to stores, parks and other dog-friendly public places. This will provide the opportunity for the owner to be able to go out in public with an obedient, well-behaved dog. We use a mix of marker training, free shaping, and classical and operant conditioning to establish a clear communication system and set expectations.
This program is for the owner that wants their dog to learn the basics and foundation of dog training with off-leash capabilities. It encompasses the on-leash program with additional advanced E-collar training, allowing you the highest level of control and enjoyment of your pet. The dog will have a solid recall, sit, down, place and heel. We are balanced trainers that use a variety of methods to communicate with your dog. After your dog has learned all the commands, we will work on duration, distance and distraction. After we have established solid ability to follow commands for adequate duration with built-in distance and distraction, we will challenge your dog’s training in high-distraction settings in order to set them up for success in the real world! This program includes an e-collar and leash. Dogs are conditioned and trained with these tools.
*Adult dogs receive a prong collar on an individual basis dependent upon training needs.
*The price includes all training, care, training equipment, and lifetime support for you and the dog.
Board and Train Programs are the base of our dog training business at Ridgeside K9. We offer multiple board and train programs depending on your dog training needs, goals, and issues you may have.
Dog training is about creating habits, we create those with consistency and repetition. Dogs are constantly learning through every interaction, whether you’re training or not. The Board and Train program submerges your dog into a controlled environment to ensure they are learning the behaviors we want them to learn. Not only correcting issues, but providing a good foundation to prevent issues from arising.
Board and train programs provide your dog a clean, and clear training plan. In this program your dog is receiving clear and consistent training and communication. Dog training is nothing more than creating habits. We do that through consistency and repetition. A board and train ensures that consistency with our experienced trainers.
We start out by just getting your dog settled in. During this time we open up a line of communication with your dog and ultimately start to bond with it. Without a bond we have nothing. Once we have a line of communication and understand what motivates your dog, we begin to tackle your dog’s individual needs for training. Throughout the process we slowly challenge your dog by introducing heavier distractions and triggers for your dog.
During training, you can call or text your trainer at any time for any reason. Ridgeside K9 is 100% open and transparent to their clients while their dogs are in our custody.
Plan for anywhere between 3-4 hours spent with us going over the last 2-3 weeks. Once training Is done we will have what we call a “turnover” at the end of the program. This will include:
