Hank would pull like a sled dog on just about any collar/harness and just wasn’t trustworthy off leash. He attended their off leash obedience program and when we came to pick hank back up, he was a totally different dog! When they say they give your dog a 100% reliable recall they mean it! We are able to do so much more with hank now because we are not constricted by where we can take him. Sending hank to Ridgeside K9 was the best decision we’ve ever made, and we made some lifelong friends along the way! Thank you for all you’ve done!

As a new comer to the area I first adopted my dog without having the slightest clue as to how to train her. I went to several other dog trainers in an attempt to learn how to safely and effectively get her to be calm around other animals and people out in public. But unfortunately their methods were not cutting it. The Ridgeside K9 team has superseded all my expectations when I first entered my dog in for the off leash B&T. Not only Is she calm but she can finally be trusted off leash without strict supervision. The Ridgeside K9 team was very helpful and extremely professional when they were training me. And I will definitely come back for all my dog training needs. I cannot thank them enough for all of their hard work and would highly recommend!!

Sending my dog to Ridgeside K9 was the best decision I made all year! Before the board and train, Walter was a bundle of energy who had no ability to self-calm. Every time we’d leave him, he would work himself up into a panic and bark non-stop. Since his board and train he’s a changed man! Not only is he obedient, but he is noticeably calmer and more relaxed both alone and with us. I can’t speak highly enough about the quality of training we experienced! All of the team was very responsive, supportive, and always willing to answer questions. I will 100% send all of my future dogs their way. Thanks so much!

Ridgeside K9 Toledo Dog Training

We Train Any Breed, Any Age, Or Any Behavior.

Small dogs to big dogs, puppies to senior dogs, we have the experience to transform your dog into the perfect obedient pet that listens to your every command!

Board and Train

In an age where personal security is of high importance and where crime is prevalent, the most effective way to defend your family and home is with an effective home protection dog.

Puppy Training

These lessons with your puppy are just the first step in a great training journey. We encourage all to continue training past the puppy stage in order to reach high level obedience and control.

1-on-1 Lessons

This is best for those who want to be very invested in the dog training process. Similarly to our other programs, the private lessons are all based off what you want from your dog.

Behavior Modification

Through balanced training and counter conditioning we can modify the dog’s behavior. Behavior modification is the most complex training process that we offer but we are also trying to change the way the dog looks at the world.

Big or Small, Sweet or Aggressive, Old or Young
