We have only worked with Rick for a very short a mount of time and in that time have seen a tremendous difference in our dog. He used to jump all over people and whine and pull when seeing other dogs out of excitement but now he is calm and collected. He still needs a lot of practice and work to get to our end goal of him being a service dog but I am confident that Rick can help us accomplish this task. Thank you so much rick. I would 100% recommend Empire State K-9 training for any of your doggy needs!Nov 15, 2020Verified

Rick is definitely the best dog trainer around! My husband and I rescued our dog Bear and realized pretty soon after he did not get along well with other dogs. We live in a very dog friendly complex, and going on walks with Bear was a chore. Every time we saw a dog, we had to turn around and go the opposite direction, or Bear would bark and lunge aggressively toward the other dog. For initial training, Bear stayed with Rick for about four days. I was stunned when I received a video from Rick of Bear with another dog, not paying the other dog any mind. We had three other classes with Rick, where we learned techniques on how handling him around other dogs, and other training tips. Our last class we were able to take Bear to Rick’s and just get him socialized to other dogs. Thanks to Rick, Bear is so well behaved and we can enjoy our walks and not worry about other dogs! Rick is truly a miracle worker!!! Thank you so much Rick!!Nov 9, 2020Verified

Rick is great, person to person, and dog to dog. My Jack Russell is only partway through his training, but he is doing great so far and Rick wrote and said he really likes Coop.May 14, 2020Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Our pricing structure is not complicated at all. All prices are listed on our website at sandersk9.com. Costs for Service Animal, Guard Dog and hunting dog training are not listed. Those seeking specialized services must speak directly to the trainer for exact costs, which are based on the individual needs of the dog's owners.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Working with dogs has been a passion since my childhood. Out of my 8 siblings, dogs were always drawn to me and I to them. After college, I decided to pursue training full time as my career and have never looked back. Now 40 years later, I have an incredibly rewarding and fulfilling career.
- What types of customers have you worked with?Our most common job is training that out-of-control, unruly family dog. Chewing, barking, housebreaking, jumping, digging, biting and fighting. Anything is remedied if trained with Empire State K-9 Training. I am also an aggression specialist so we handle any aggressive dog even those that other trainers have refused to train. ANY AGE - ANY BREED - RESULTS GUARANTEED!
