Is Your Dog Destructive?

Are you constantly finding your dog chewing on things or tearing up the backyard?

We know how frustrating it can be when your dog doesn’t listen, barks excessively, or chews things up.  We’ll work with you and your dog to correct unwanted behaviors like jumping, leash pulling, and more.
Ridgeside K9 Colorado Springs understands that every dog learns differently and has different needs.  Our team of expert dog trainers is capable of correcting misbehaviors of all sorts.


we can train every dog no matter the age, breed, size, or problem.

Basic & Advanced Dog Obedience Training

The “basics” are never as basic as many believe. The “basics” must be the foundation the dog can fall back on under stress and when in a state of drive. As with all things – the stronger the foundation the stronger the structure. However, if the foundation is weak, no matter how fancy the structure is it will eventually fail.

Our training goal is always to provide your dog with the strongest obedience foundation possible in the allotted time we have to ensure you and your dog can fall back on obedience whenever needed in real-world situations.

Let us help put an end to bad behavior!

Start Enjoying Life With Your Well-Trained Dog

At Ridgeside K9 Colorado Springs, we understand that the foundation of all successful dog training lies in dog obedience training. It’s easy to underestimate how important this is for everything from pet training to high-levels of obedience competitions – if your dog doesn’t have a strong understanding of basic commands and communication then no matter what else you do with them it will likely fall apart eventually!

That’s why our goal is always to provide every pup with an unbreakable base they can rely on when times get tough or distractions arise.

"I am very impressed with the work ethic and dedication of this board and train business. They begin by listening attentively to owners about the dog’s needs, their concerns, their trials and their hopes for their dog’s future. From the moment that the dog is accepted into their care, the dog is treated as if they are their own personal pet."
