Client Testimonials & Newspaper Articles

At Spirit Ridge our philosophy is based on the understanding that our clients have different needs when requesting our services and/or help.  Some clients simply want a well adjusted, family pet that can go for walks and not create all sorts of problems for their handlers and other dogs and humans.  Others, want to create and instill a strong 'work' ethic in their dogs by teaching them to 'track', go through an agility course, competitive obedience as well as the ultimate, reliable off-leash obedience that comes after a lot of hard work and handler patience and persistence.

No matter what the objective is, we strive to customize our obedience and other training to clients' desires. It is this type of attention that we provide plus the small size classes (limited to 6 handler/dog teams at most - no 'cookie cutter', high volume classes at our training facility!) that creates a client loyalty that we strive for.

Please take a moment to read some of the client testimonials and newspaper articles that have been written about Spirit Ridge in the recent past.  We are indebted to our clients that have taken the time to write these unsolicited testimonials.
