One of the best investments you can make, is that between you and your dog.
One of my most recent success stories!
Dog training is more than walking your dog. It’s about restoring families and lives. Reclaiming the way you used to live before your dog forced you to change. Obedience through communication is the key to success! When one of your dogs attacks the other and prevents him from coming into the family room; When your neighbor is afraid of your dog attacking their dog; When you just can’t get through to your dog and it’s forcing you to make a decision to get rid of the dog or end your relationship; That’s when we step in. Learn through comedy, fun, and easy to understand methods to take back control of your home. Not only do we train dogs to be obedient, we are problem solvers. We are not a franchise nor are we a big business. We offer unlimited access for you to call with issues that occur after the session. We travel all around the DC and Virginia area helping people with situations described above and many others, along with obedience and walking.
I have a rescue puppy, and she’s what we think a shepherd/hound mix. She’s wonderful, extremely smart, and very affectionate. But, she’s a puppy, and I’m hopelessly in love with her, so a lot of her negative behavior remains unfixed. She jumps, she begs for food, she pulls on the leash, she is very possessive of me to the point of aggression, and a whole host of other issues. So finally I reached out for a trainer, and from the start Ryan was my choice. Very polite and personable while organizing the training dates, and very informative during our lesson. It wasn’t just training the puppy, it was training me as well, which I think is something everyone can benefit from. The same day after training, my friends all noticed a change in my dog and her responsiveness to my commands. She’s still a work in progress, but she improves every day with what Ryan taught us. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a qualified and effective trainer!
I HIGHLY recommend Ryan from Ruff House Dog Training! To say that he is great at what he does is an underestimate! I must say that I was hesitant at first as our dog has been really aggressive. Ryan assured me not to worry and that he could handle himself. After 10 minutes with Bruno, Ryan had him under control. He was super informative and knew exactly what he was talking about. In only ONE session, Bruno is a completely different dog. We have a lot of work to go with him, but the foundation has been laid and it is now up to us to continue to improve our role as the Alpha. Thank you so much, Ryan! Gone are the days of living in fear and hello to tomorrow!
We can’t wait to bring our dogs home, cuddle with them, take them out for walks, play fetch, etc. Our dogs complete us, in a sense. They provide happiness and joy in our lives. However, sometimes the dog takes advantage of us.
Most times, we don’t know how to fix that. We think, “that’s just the way it’s going to be” or “that’s just the dog’s personality”. The truth of the matter is, no dog is too old to learn new tricks; no dog is immune to having boundaries just because of their size. We, as humans have rules and guidelines that we should follow to live prosperous lives, our pets should too.
