Dog Day Training

Sometimes, all you need is a helping hand.

Our professional dog trainers work with all breeds and all ages, educating pets and owners, solving behavior problems, and getting the results you are looking for. We believe there is hope for all dogs to become great companions. 

About Day Training

Day Training programs are the base of our dog training business at Ridgeside K9 Colorado Springs.

We offer multiple-day training programs depending on your dog training needs, goals, and issues you may have.

Each day’s training program is customized for the individual dog. During our day training programs, your dog is glued to their assigned trainer.

Ridgeside K9 will ensure you are 100% comfortable and clear about how to communicate and handle your dog. There is no time-limit to turn-overs, often they take 4 hours as we do not leave until you are comfortable, educated, and crystal clear on everything.

What's Covered In The Course

what will your dog learn

We focus on – On and off-leash obedience, Place work, Off-leash recall and cover all aspects of livability, control, and environmental neutrality. Often behavioral issues all come down to confusion and the dog having no idea what the desired behavior is. 

Teaching the dog impulse control and self-capping drive and teaching the dog how to communicate is critical for long-term success once training is completed we will have what we call a “turnover” at the end of the program. 

This will include: learning about motivations and rewards; learning and giving new commands;  communicating with clarity; correcting unwanted behaviors / reinforcing and rewarding desired behaviors; knowing how to stay in control and communicating with your dog. Please plan for anywhere between 3-4 hours to be spent with us going over the last 2-4 weeks.


Day training programs range from two-weeks to three-weeks depending on your needs and the dog’s behavioral problems. 

There is no difference in the training between the two and three-week day training program other than duration. The three-week program allows for more environmental exposure, environmental conditioning, environmental neutrality, and overall confidence and impulse control. 

Three-week day training will always deliver a more reliable and consistent dog in the end. Both programs work magic – but “more” training is simply better results. The price includes all training, care, training equipment, and lifetime support for you and the dog

Ridgeside K9 provides everything your pup may need to have a great time during their visit, all you’ll need to bring is their food and any medications that they may need administered throughout the day. Medications should be brought in their original packaging, both for prescription and over the counter medications. We also ask that personal toys and belongings stay home to ensure no one’s favorite chew toy or bed-time cuddle buddy gets lost or damaged. 

Upon drop-off, please leave your dog’s leash to aid in a more efficient checkout. (Have labeled if possible)
