Dog Training Classes & private lessons
Looking to teach your dog to be a better companion? Whether you want to compete or just improve your relationship with your best friend, obedience training can help.
Problems with barking, separation anxiety, resource guarding or destructive chewing? We’ll focus on teaching your dog what to do instead of those problem behaviors!
Agility is fun for dogs and handlers alike — whether you’re new to the sport or an experienced handler, Rick can work with you to teach your dog the skills they need to succeed.
Start your puppy off right! Establish the right relationship early on, and get help with crate training, housebreaking, greeting people, leash walking, and more!
If your dog is over 6 months old, family manners training can help you survive those teenage years! We’ll work on building and strengthening basic behaviors and teaching appropriate social skills.
Know you want to compete? Whether you’re new to the world of competitive dog sports or need help problem solving for your current competition dog, Rick’s experience training for the ring can help.
We offer both group classes and private lessons.
Private lessons can be arranged at one of our facilities or your home.

Train with Rick
Welcome to Rick’s Canine Workshop. My programs have been designed for not only the first-time dog owner but also the serious competitor.
Each program is individually tailored to meet the needs of each owner and dog team. I use positive training techniques in all my programs for pet ownership and competition.
I can help you teach your dog to be a joy to live and train with. Dogs want a chance to please and be successful. But they are not born knowing the rules and social graces of humans nor the rules in competition. You have to teach them in a clear, concise, and positive way.
Good Training for a Good Dog
With an average class size of 5 students per instructor, you get the one-on-one help you need to help your dog understand the human world.
Competition & Pet Classes
No matter what your goals are with your canine companion, we’ve got a class for you — from puppy manners to competition skills.

An Experienced Competitor
