What Our Customers Say About Us

Sending her to Ridgeside has truly strengthened the bond I have with my pup. She attended the 3 week program and came home a nearly perfected version of herself! I can now take her on hikes everyday without stressing about her pulling & jumping. She is now disciplined and extra focused on me instead of distractions. I would recommend Ridgeside to anyone without hesitation!

Cristina Alosio

We could not be more pleased or impressed with Ridgeside K9 Carolinas. Our lives are different because of this experience and we are confident our dog’s life is too. Thank you, Chris and Ridgeside!

Sarah Acosta

Highly recommend Ridgeside K9! I never imagined my Golden Retriever being so obedient. She would pull the leash really hard almost making you fall. Now she won’t go out the door without you telling her to, she doesn’t pull on the leash and when she is off leash she doesn’t run away.  Will did an AMAZING job and was and still is very quick to reply to any questions you may have.

Make Training Enjoyable, And Open Doors to Adventures that Off-Leash Freedom Brings!

Does your dog or new puppy lack focus and attention toward your commands? Are you tired of your dog not listening? Are you frustrated with their behavior toward other dogs or people? We can help!

Off-Leash Board and Training Focusing On Obedience.
Potty Training, Basic Obedience and Socialization.
Focusing on Aggressive Behavior.

OUR PROCESS IS SIMPLE. We focus on owner training as much as dog training!

At our send homes, we spend 3 to 4 hours educating you on how to become the best dog handler! After your dog graduates, we offer multiple free training opportunities to strengthen your skills!

Well, what exactly do We offer after training for free?

Follow Up Lessons
If you choose to do a board and train program with us, you have free follow-up lessons to help you!

Pack Walks
Pack walks are an awesome way to work around other trained dogs in a controlled environment. During pack walks we will push you and your dog past your training comfort zone! We want you guys to be the best team possible.

Refresher Training
We hold scheduled refresher training events throughout the months. These are similar to pack walks, but we focus more heavily on obedience and relationship building.

The Family Page
Once you become a client, you are part of our Ridgeside K9 Family. You will have access to join our Facebook family group with 2500+ clients! This is a great group for networking and hearing about upcoming events such as seminars, refresher training and outings!

What If We Have To Go Out Of Town?
Stay and Train
Do you have to go out of town? Leave your dog with one of our trainers for a small fee so they get some refresher training instead of sitting in a kennel! During our stay and train, your dog will work in obedience and adventure around town with one of our amazing trainers

20+ Years Experience

Who Are We?

Our team consists of prior military veterans, retired police k9 trainers, high level competition sport trainers and some of the top household pet trainers in the country.

Ridgeside K9 believes there is no "one size fits all" approach to dog training.

Each dog and owner are evaluated for issues, goals and wants. We customize each training package using a mix of marker training, free shaping, classical and operant conditioning to establish real world, measurable and reliable obedience and control.

We always push for the dog to achieve clarity of task. Showing a dog a new way of "being" and the owners a new way of communicating.

Our Trainers Are Evaluated, Trained and Selected...

carefully to fit our brand and to provide you guys the best, most qualified and most knowledgeable trainers!
