Ridgeside K9 Louisville

Born and raised in central Kentucky, Chris started his journey into the dog world while at Eastern Kentucky University with a German Shepherd named Zoey. Chris and Zoey trained with various dog clubs and went on to title in tracking.

Chris’ love for dogs grew as he moved around for work, gaining experience and exposure. He finally decided to start training dogs professionally over 10 years ago. His passion for dogs led him to become a police officer. Now he is the dog handler for a Sheriff’s office.

Chris believes in continuing education and attends classes/seminars regularly to ensure he is providing the best experience possible for the families he works with.

He is also a founding member of the Central Kentucky Police Dog Association, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping provide training to K-9 units from smaller agencies.

Ridgeside K9 Louisville serves ALL of Central and Eastern Kentucky with training needs. 

WHY RIDGESIDE K9 Dog Training?

Are you a pet parent looking for the best puppy training classes or pup programs for potty training? Are you hoping to enjoy loose leash walking with your pooch but have an extremely busy schedule? You may be looking for a pup training program that includes a training collar. Whatever the case, at Ridgeside K9, based in Louisville, Kentucky, we offer a wide range of pet training solutions. We can train your dog to obey basic cues, such as:

  • Basic commands (sit, stay, down, etc.)
  • Door manners
  • Leash manners
  • and much more

We currently offer immersive home-based board and trains and plan to open a facility in the near future to expand our training services, including daycare and classes.


Training The Dog

First step in training is teaching a clear communication system to the dog. We have to have a way to clearly communicate with dogs what we want and don’t want from them. We will teach them obedience that works anywhere! Doesn’t matter where you go, whether it’s a busy park or grandma’s house, our system works!

Training The Owner

The second and most important step to training is training the owners! At graduation, we spend 3 hours educating you the owner! We teach, show you and coach you. We want you to learn how to properly communicate with your pup so you can build a stronger relationship.

Maintenance Training

Here at Ridgeside K9, we offer various ways to keep up with your training to be able to include lifetime support. We hold group refresher training for all prior clients. Also, we offer pack walks and have a Facebook family group to be able to ask questions and connect with other owners.
