What a great experience using Ada with Riverside dog training. She has taught us the valuable tools we need to get through this puppy stage :-)
We took our 18 month old put bull for training. Anne was very informative and helpful gave my wife and I tons of handouts to help us to continue our training at home between lessons and to continue now. Rusty when he first started his training couldn't even see a dog without getting anxious and start barking and lunging. Now after 4 weeks he will allow dogs to walk by withing about 6 feet without him even caring and we actually took him camping over labor day and the campsite on both sides of us had dogs and he didn't have one outburst. Also rusty now walks nice on a leash with us. If your dog as any behavioral issues or just want to add more training to your dog's repertoire than I highly suggest Anne. You won't find anyone more knowledgeable patient and also affordable than her. Thank you again Anne or and Kirby for putting up with Rusty'a nonsense
Our Lucy is quite sweet but also a very rambunctious Australian Cattle dog. This combined with her stubbornness and physical strength, she was out of control. Thankfully I found Alex. He is great! Right from the start he had Lucy following his commands. Lucy now sits / stays and comes when I call her. We are working on walking without pulling on the leash. It’s wonderful to see the changes with her. He loves dogs and they love him. I highly recommend Alex. I can’t say it enough, he is great!
Karen did amazing work during the two weeks she had my dog for a board/train. My dog is a completely different dog while still being the super sweet dog that she was before.
Cindy Wilson did a fabulous job with assisting me with training my dog,Hershey . She was well prepared with handouts to support and supplement her instruction. I highly recommend Cindy as a dog trainer! She loves dogs and strives to assist her clients to be successful with their pets.
Angelica really cares about our dogs she has made progress with our hardest dog to walk where other people have failed. We have multiple dogs and she takes all of them into consideration. We HIGHLY recommend this person and we like the fact that it’s not all online we can converse with her if not in person at least over messenger
the love i have for dogs. spending time with them. keeping them healthy and good diet. Socializing them with other digs is healthy
Dinah is fantastic! She's reliable, trustworthy, flexible, and most importantly our dogs just love her! We have been with Dinah for a year now. She walks our two dogs three times or more per week while my fiancé and I work long shifts at a hospital 30 minutes away. We are able to focus on our work without worry that our dogs will be cared for. I highly recommend her!
I am a reliable and friendly dog walker with years of dog-handling experience. I've competed in various AKC shows, received dog obedience awards, and always lived with dogs. I would be happy to give your pet some exercise and care.
I am able to train dogs to standard behaviors. I have had experience with many dogs and love working with all breeds. I love working with young dogs and puppies especially. I am willing to travel to you when possible.

I will happily walk or sit your dog. I am available during Monday-Friday and occasionally on weekends. I am friendly and responsible. I have a pet of my own, and I know that I would also like your pet in good hands.
We walk all types of dogs from Monday to Friday. We love helping animals, and we would love to take your dog for a walk.
I train little pups into mellow, mild-mannered mutts and teach pet owners to understand where their dog/puppy is coming from.
You can think of training as learning life lessons. Pet dogs have the capacity to become a loving, even tempered, and well-mannered member of the family. All it takes is hard work dedicated to teaching dogs according to how they learn individually. My understanding of dog communication and cognition allows me to accommodate various levels of intelligence and energy in order to structure a lesson plan for individual dog needs. Training should motivate confidence and problem solving which can be built upon to gain consistency in proper behavior, end unwanted behaviors and strengthen the bond of your family.
