I just had to let you know we are sooooo very grateful for your training.
You have transformed our lives! Bella is a DREAM dog! I still can’t
believe the difference in such a short time….much more than we expected.
No more pulling, no more leash biting, no more stopping at every stick or
distraction, no more darting after other dogs and people, no more ignoring
my every command (even though I know she knows what I’m asking of her). I
can’t wait to continue our lessons when we get back to Henderson the middle
of March. In the mean time we will continue to do as you taught us and
enjoy our amazing dog.
Here’s a photo of her on a ski/walking trail in the Sawtooth Mountains.
Notice…..she is off leash and actually comes when called!
PS Bella says thanks as well. She is a very happy dog.
Brutus was a 10 month old rescue mutt from the Lied Animal Shelter. He was very friendly but lacked any discipline, potty training, manners, or focus.
After successfully completing Sin City K-9′s Dog Obedience training with Rich Damico, Brutus and his owner Troy went on to Sin City K-9′s AKC Rally Training with Carol Riback. “AKC Rally was definitely a challenge at first, but Brutus loves the interaction and challenges that AKC Rally offers.” Brutus received his AKC Rally Novice title in November 2012.
As Rich says in his article about choosing a dog trainer, it’s important that your dog trainer is able to demonstrate obedience techniques on his or her dog. How can you trust a trainer to train your dog if they can’t train theirs?
Rich takes obedience training to a completely different level with his dog Ace P.I., who is a nationally-known canine sporting competitor. Unlike many trainers, who allow their business to get in the way of training their own dogs, Rich expects his best friend Ace to be a shining example of dog obedience.
Here’s a short video of Sin City K9′s founder, Richard D’Amico, and Ace P.I., at an obedience trial…which Ace passed with flying colors, of course.
Last week Rich and ACE competed at the United States Mondioring National Trial, held in Costa Mesa, California. They placed 3rd in the nation for Level 3 Mondioring and received the Decoy’s Choice award.
Many of our clients really want to train their dogs, but just can’t seem to find the time. Some travel for work and also worry about boarding their pet while they are away. To address the needs of customers like this, Rich Damico offers board and train programs in his Las Vegas training facility.
How does it work? Simple! We do everything for you. With a board and train, a member of the Sin City K9 staff picks up your pup before you go out of town. They stay with us for a few weeks and are trained by Rich or another member of our dog training staff. When you get back home, your dog is delivered trained, washed, and happy! We then spend a few sessions teaching YOU what we taught your puppy so that you can be an effective leader of the pack!
Rich Damico, Ace, and the rest of the Sin City K9 team were recently interviewed for an article in the Las Vegas Review Journal! Click here to read the article. Congratulations to Rich and the Sin City Canine team!
We’ve had a bunch of our readers call and e-mail about our videos. Everyone says the same thing: “They look great, but you’ve already done TONS of training with these dogs. Let me see what the dogs look like before they understand Rich’s dog training system.”
No problem! Here’s a video of Luna after just one week of training. You can see that she understand place and is learning to come and heel on leash. She’s still a bit jumpy and isn’t a great listener yet, but she’s already better than many pet dogs.
One important thing to notice is how HAPPY Luna is to be spending so much time training with Sin City K9. Unlike other systems, which “break” the dog or overwork and stress the dog, Rich Damico’s dog training system focuses on setting boundaries while showing Luna plenty of love – and she loves it!
Lots of people think that having a great family dog like a golden retriever or labrador retriever means they can do without training. While it is true that there are certain breeds that seem to have an innate ability to please their loved ones, all dogs need training in order to live a full, happy life.
Here we see Sin City K9 training Andy. You will notice the wagging tail, fun puppy-like prance, and smiles that Andy is giving trainer Rich D’amico. Andy really loves working with Sin City K9!!!
