Ridgeside K9 are top notch dog trainers. The cost is high to get your dog trained and I can honestly say it is worth it. The care they gave to my dog was excellent. The communication was again excellent. Britney is a wonderful trainer and truly seems to care about my dog. She has stayed in contact with me about how my dog is doing and given recommendations. "Ridgeside K9 are top notch dog trainers!"

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!

We got the puppy training for our dog Monty in June and it gave us such a good foundation to work with. So when Ridgeside started offering Day Care I had to jump on it. Monty absolutely loves it and I feel so confident when I leave him for the day that he is having a blast, socializing and learning! I go every Monday and I live all the way in Ashburn so it’s definitely worth it! "...so it’s definitely worth it!"


Ridgeside K9 Tidewater

We want to empower owners to feel confident in their relationship with their dog. We tailor each program to the needs of the specific dog we are training. We do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach to trainings which sets us apart from many of our competitors.

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.

Board and Train

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.

Doggie Daycare

The daycare facility comes with designated recreation and relaxation areas to strike the required balance between exercise and downtime for your dog.

Aggression Rehab

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
