DOG TRAINING CLASSES & PRIVATE LESSONS
Looking to teach your dog to be a better companion? Whether you want to compete or just improve your relationship with your best friend, obedience training can help.
Problems with barking, separation anxiety, resource guarding, or destructive chewing? We’ll focus on teaching your dog what to do instead of those problem behaviors!
Agility is fun for dogs and handlers alike—whether you’re new to the sport or an experienced handler, Rick can work with you to teach your dog the skills they need to succeed.
Start your puppy off right! Establish the right relationship early on, and get help with crate training, housebreaking, greeting people, leash walking, and more!
If your dog is over 6 months old, family manners training can help you survive those teenage years! We’ll work on building and strengthening basic behaviors and teaching appropriate social skills.
Know you want to compete? Whether you’re new to the world of competitive dog sports or need help problem solving for your current competition dog, Rick’s experience training for the ring can help.
