We hired Garret to help us with our 2 year old pup who was having some behavior problems. Garret has great information and has gone out of his way to help taking time to answer any of our questions and show us how to communicate more effective with our pup. The methods he has presented have been super effective in helping our pup gain confidence and good behavior. We are so thankful we found Ridley… Read more “Chloe M.”
After struggling with our puppy and her growing leash reactivity towards other dogs for a year, we decided to call Garett. With his attentiveness and amazing ability to assess an issue with our dog right away he was able to immediately fix the issue during training. With the tools that he has given us we have been able to see improvements in our dog on walks and her reactivity. We have been able to recall… Read more “Cheyanne C.”
I’m very happy I found and reached out Ridley K9 Academy. Garrett obviously knows dogs and more importantly how to help the people he works with better understand them. Even before booking an in-house session, he readily helped over the phone. His approach with the training was great – he allowed our German Shepard to come to him and build trust and a rapport and at the end, we had better confidence working with our… Read more “Alison M.”
Garrett is the best. My wild poodle puppy has already made significant changes after her first lesson. He is patient, loving and cares so much about dogs. Garrett is also really fun to talk with. I would highly recommend Ridley K9 Academy.

I had an amazing training session with Garrett. He helped me understand my dog’s feelings and actions, and now I feel I can work with Grizz in a partnership. We worked on his confidence building, and mine, to help us feel better outside with distractions. My boy is only 8 months old and with today’s session I know we are going to have a great future together. I cannot thank Garrett enough for the help… Read more “Nastia Avanova”

Garret came into my home and completely opened our eyes to so many different things with my 1 year old German Shepherd. He set us in the right direction and gave us some great tools to start working with Gunner. He answered ALL of our questions and definitely took away some stress that we were having due to worrying about Gunners bad behavior. He truly does awesome work and you can tell he loves what… Read more “Bailey Herrling”
Garrett helped my dog and I to become a better team. Understanding that I needed to be taught how to properly train my dog and show him what I expect/need from him is key. He helped me to correct the behavior I had enforced and show me the correct way to interact with him. I am grateful for Garrett’s patience, knowledge and understanding. I would recommend him to anyone needing assistance and look forward to… Read more “Marcie Hoekstra”
I have interacted with Garrett a few times, he has the right energy for training dogs, he is calm and non reactive, he listens well and responds thoughtfully. I admire the training of his own dogs. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Garrett if you need help molding your pup into a model k9 citizen.
I signed up for a training class w my black lab puppy , Garrett was sooo wonderful w all the dogs in the class, we had different breeds, different ages. Garrett had us think about our own goals with our dogs and he worked w all of us individually and as a group. Garrett’s love for what he does and all the dogs in the class was so evident by how he interacts with the… Read more “Debbie Stetler Zeier”
Let me just write plan and simple this guy Garrett knows what he’s talking about, if u apply what he teaches you , you will get RESULTS. The proof is in he’s dogs, and I personally have seen him handle dogs that would have other trainers run the other way. Not to mention he’s good guy straight forward. Thank u for your work.
Thank you for all the tips and coaching today. We are excited to continue working our amercan bulldog puppy. If anyone needs help with their puppy, call Ridley K9. He is great with the dogs, adults and especially with our 6 year old son. Great training session today.
Yo bro! Nice!!
Garrett helped us immensely with our young golden doodle puppy. It was amazing seeing how quickly our puppy could learn new skills with the proper teacher- absolutely could not have made this much progress on our own!! I would absolutely recommend his training to anyone who needs direction with a new puppy!!
Garette was our answered prayer 2 Months ago we adopted a 2 1/2 year old chocolate lab mix from Sacramento shelter. From the start our new dog seemed to adapted very well to our home. His personality very smart , sweet and semi listened to commands. Things changed as soon as we had several Family members at our house for a baby shower. He was aggressive , territorial protective and we became fearful He would… Read more “Billie R.”

I’ve have been using Garrett to educate me in training my 2 Rottweilers and German Sheppard every week for about a year. His extensive experience always produces desired results. Garrett has been exceptional at training me and my wife! We then pass this knowledge down to our pups. We strongly recommend ridley k9 academy for all your k9 needs.
We bought Garrett Ridley’s book. It is very informative. Garrett is an invaluable resource for American Bulldog owners. Sadly, we live too far away to get training sessions in person. He instead, was able to speak to us several times at great length by phone. He is generous with his time and willing to share his knowledge. Our puppy’s behavior immediately improved after using Garrett’s advice.
I have watched Garrett Ridley train dogs for several years. His compassion when speaking with dog owners mixed with his knowledge of training skills makes for a great learning environment for both dog and handler. If you are looking for a place to train your dog you have an excellent one with Ridley K9 Academy!
Garrett came to our home for our first training session with our 5 month old Shepherd. Garrett coached us and gave us the training we needed to understand our dogs cues. Looking forward to utilizing the skills we learned today. I highly recommend Ridley K9 academy.
Garrett is an amazing dog trainer who understands dogs & people! Overjoyed with the behavior of our German Shepherd mix and Husky! Liked that he worked with the dogs at home and I won’t have to sell a kidney to pay for it!
Garrett is passionate about canines, there care, training and breeds winner American Bulldogs. He’s an expert on all these subjects and has years of experience to back up his effectiveness. He does not disappoint!
Garret helped us train our 8 week old Springer Spaniel at our own home. He spent a couple of hours teaching us training techniques and gave us more insight into our puppy’s personality traits. It was a great start to us training our puppy as a family.
He is with out a doubt someone to call on. He makes sure you get it right and make it a pleasant experience with you and your dog. In my opinion he is actually training you to make your pet what you want out of them. He is super nice and loves what he does. He gives great advice and always there to help you. Call and get your loved one in a better place!!!!
Garrett has been my families trainer for many years and through multiple breeds: German Shepherd, Rottweiler, and of course American Bull Dog.

Garrett has a deep understanding of a each dogs temperament and which training methods work best for each individual dog. My wife and… Read more “Jason W.”
This trainer speaks a dog’s language! We were so impressed that he would come to our home and patiently answer all our questions and work with us and our very large, full-of-life puppy! He does not break a dog’s spirit but instead, helps you to embrace and enjoy your dog as a puppy. We have worked through some very annoying behaviors yet feel we are positively engaged with our puppy, thanks to Garret’s guidance.… Read more “Gail H.”
After several trainers came to our house & deemed our dog too big a problem for them to remedy, Garrett Ridley showed up and saved the day. It was like having a visit from the dog whisperer. Like that, but better. Garrett is the consummate professional, he understands dog behavior, and he literally saved my dog’s life. I cannot begin to thank him enough. His kennel is located in Placerville, but he was happy to… Read more “Dante M.”
I interviewed several dog trainers 2 year ago before choosing Garret. I chose him over all of the others because of his approach using positive reinforcement and gentle correction. Garrett worked with me to give my dog the structure and discipline that he badly needed. I could easily see that he is a man who loves to see dogs be successful. Recently, my dog Murphy began having behavior problems that were endangering his health. I… Read more “Angie M.”
I used Garret over year ago and absolutely loved him and his dogs! I referred him to a friend of mine and she has now referred him to two other people. Garret knows dogs and treats them with respect and they in turn treat their owners with respect. I would recommend him to everyone!
