    Rick goes above and beyond to help

    We had the pleasure of meeting Rick and so grateful for all his help that day he came to our home. His dedication, compassionate and love for animals comes through the moment you meet him. He listens to your concerns and takes the time to explain how he will proceed to find the right solution. The reason we had reached out to Rick was to see how we could help our adopted fur baby from barking at other dogs and their people. He explained he was going to train us and not our dog. It’s quite interesting how much it is actually us and not the dog. Rick is absolutely a wonderful, beautiful person who really does care about what he does. He spent so much time with us and did not leave our home until we were comfortable with the recommendations he had given to us. We highly recommend Rick to anyone looking for a trainer. Upon leaving that day he made sure to let us know he is always available and to not hesitate to call him if we had any questions. We are so blessed to have met Rick and can’t thank him enough for all that he did for us that day. Deb & Bob Appello and Tobie too.

    k-9 Minds dog training

    Rick came to our house to help us with our two rescue dogs . one we had for many years and one we recently just adopted with so many behavioral issues it was really upsetting my other dog and he was impossible to handle . Rick came over and instantly knew right away how to teach us how to deal with his behavior and to understand him . He spent so much time we never felt rushed and his knowledge patience and experience really helped the dogs and our family to learn the best ways for training . We highly recommend Rick and his dog training services. The Mitrione Family

    Rick was great with our 3 dogs. I was looking for someone to be honest with me about our female GP since we were having behavior problems with her attacking our other two dogs and he was very honest about her behavior. He spent hours at our house observing the dogs and how they interacted with each other and even though it won't work out for our female I appreciated is honesty about her more than anything. He also showed us how to control our little yapper's barking and how to start training our puppy. I love the way he trains with patience and caring for the dogs. I will definitely be using him in the future!

    Unbelievable dog trainer!!!

    Although Rick says he has been training dogs for many years I believe it's more than that. How he communicated with my dogs is unbelievable . He knows what the dogs will do before they do it. He has an amazing gift and something I've never seen before in my life. What I could not do in 5 years he did in less than 5 minutes. I just wished I would have know about him 5 years ago. He is a must see trainer and I highly recommend him.

    Would Recommend

    In the short time ( approx. 90 mins.) that Rick was with us he turned our whole family/pet relationship around. He explained our behavioral errors and pointed us in the right direction.

    Rick came over as scheduled. As soon as he walked in, he explained that he would be observing my dogs and I was to act as normal as possible. I found it so interesting, he performed simple activities, in which my dogs responded and Rick was able to explain the pack to me. It was fascinating. We went over a few of the minor issues, I was given solutions that worked for all of my family. We were ready to tackle the biggest issue, before going on the walk, Rick taught my family the small, yet, important details that would improve our walks. During our walk, Rick was very patient and thorough with us. By the end of the walk, we were able to pass other dogs without any negative response from our dog. Just one visit. I would highly recommend K-9 Minds, Rick is who you will speak to and who will come to your door. Not at anytime, did I feel rushed to bothersome. His passion for what he does is visible, his love for dogs is genuine.

    Taught us training techniques for our out of control dog.

    It was amazing...miraculous even! within minutes of his arrival our dog stopped barking and ended her attack stance. we could not believe it. Ricky taught us how we were actually contributing to her crazed behavior. He was amazing. She was calmer within a short time and by the time he left...maybe 90 minutes later, we were sure that our 10 yr, old shorky (which some called a mini cujo!) can actually be trained to behave around strangers. Believe me when I tell you that she has bitten just about every one outside the family or at least attempted to attack them. so yes this man is a miracle worker. i would hire him in a heartbeat!!

    Canine behavioral training

    It went fantastic. Rick gave me many valuable tips to help fix some of the behavioral issues I was having with my two puppies. In less than a week, his advice had curbed their bad behavior almost miraculously. He really understands dogs and was able to predict how the dogs would react to everything he did. It was amazing watching him accurately tell me what the dog would do based on his behavior. He truly understands dogs and what they are thinking, which goes a long way in helping to control bad behavior. He was extremely friendly and professional. I would definitely hire him again.
