At Ryker Dog Training, we provide effective and convenient solutions to dog problem behaviors. You and your dog will love learning together in a comfortable and supportive environment around other dogs and dog lovers. When you enroll in a program at Ryker, you receive personalized attention from a knowledgeable, friendly trainer. We will help you teach your dog essential manners and socialization skills while showing you how to reinforce those behaviors at home to make them stick. Our tried-and-true training techniques work because they are:

  • • Grounded in balanced training principles using the methods that are the best fit for you and your dog or puppy.
  • • Using the most effective training tool for your dog; which could be food, slip leads, prong collars, e-collars, or many other tools available. By educating our clients on the proper use of each tool, we eliminate the confusion caused by misinformation.
  • • Pragmatically designed to prepare dogs for both everyday and unfamiliar real-world situations.

It’s not dogs’ nature to behave the way we humans want them to – they’re dogs, after all. That’s where Ryker Dog Training comes in; we teach dogs good manners and show you how to bring out your dogs’ best behavior. We even put icing on the cake by making sure both you and your dog have lots of fun while you learn!
