"Ricky and Vanessa are the most dedicated, amazing dog training team I've ever encountered. I've trained my brother's pitbull when he was just a puppy, but training an aggressive rescued dog was a whole other story. I knew I couldn't choose any trainer. I wanted someone who specialized in aggressive behavior and who understood dog psychology, basically someone on Cesar Millan's level. I was deciding between Elite Pup or K9 training. I chose Elite Pup training because it was personalized, Ricky came to do a 30 minute consultation and he was extremely patient with my dog. Ever since I worked with Ricky, my dog has turned a full 180°. I couldn't have this calm, balanced dog without his help. Fred loves you guys and appreciates all of your help too!"
"Ricky was absolutely wonderful with helping us train our rescue Staffy. She was scared of other dogs which would make her aggressive when one got too close to her and she would always pull on her lead as hard as she could anytime she saw another dog. She is a completely different dog now so we're able to take her more places and let her explore more. Not to mention Ricky actually explaining what he does and why so we can continue to train her and our other pup was a huge help. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for someone to train their dog with obedience and aggression issues."
"Elite Pup Training is the best! After just a few sessions my dogs went from barking at every guest to lying calmly on their beds during dinner parties. Our friends could not believe the transformation.
They were also both so difficult to walk that I rarely took them out together. Now, they both dogs walk right at my side with no pulling.
One of our dogs had previously spent a month at another training facility, but the training didn't come close to what we received in just 6 sessions with Ricky. Ricky is super knowledgable and professional; and the perfect mix of gentle and firm. Highly recommend."
