Dog Obedience Training for the St. Louis, MO, Area

If you’re a dog owner in the St. Louis, MO, area, who needs dog obedience training, contact Ridgeside K9 to enroll your dog in one of our programs. We offer training for dogs of all ages and personalities.

Our Obedience Programs

When you have a dog that you know will obey your commands both on and off the leash, you’re able to enjoy far more recreational activities with your pet. Having to worry about your dog’s behavior puts a damper on any fun outings, so obedience training is in the best interests of both you and your canine companion.

At Ridgeside K9, we offer board-and-train programs to teach your dog the essentials of following your commands. We use a variety of training methods based on your dog’s individual capacity to help them acquire obedient behaviors and train them out of undesirable behaviors.

Our Vision

Our expert trainers understand that a dog needs to understand your commands in order to be obedient, so we also offer tips and suggestions for you to communicate more effectively with your animal. Our goal is for you and your dog to be an effective partnership after the training program is complete.

Whether you have a completely untrained puppy or an adult dog that needs advanced dog obedience training, Ridgeside K9 can help. Call us at 703-586-8968 or fill out our contact form to get started.
