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 dog. He didn’t rush the session and even stayed over the scheduled time to answer all the questions we had. He left a packet of information that goes over everything we worked on during the in-house session too so we can keep at it on our own. He also hosts group sessions to keep up with the training and work on dog socialization which I’m looking forward to attending. We’ve seen just how sweet, playful, and trainable our dog can really be – now that we know how to handle him!
