Mobile Dog Training

Our mobile dog training option consists of training sessions with you and your family in the comfort and privacy of your home. We believe your home is the most adequate environment for your dog to learn.

Mobile Dog Training Includes

  • 1 to 2 sessions per week for a pre-determined number of sessions (number of session is determined during the temperament evaluation).
  • Each session is approximately 90 minutes. Sessions involve: 45 minutes of trainer / dog time to establish proper foundation, followed by 45 minutes of owner / dog time to establish leadership and control with Garrett’s supervision.
  • Each session requires follow-up work by you, which consists of at least (3) 15 minute sessions of homework each day to keep up with your training program.
  • Books recommended to read while in training

Group Dog Training

High Quality, Low Cost options include:

  • Training based on AKC (CGC test)
  • Learn how to train using positive methods
  • 10 dog limit per class – please contact us to schedule your class
  • 90 min training sessions are NEVER RUSHED

We are sorry but at this time Ridley K-9 Academy is no not offering our group training classes. We look forward to starting another class soon.
