About Us

For over 25 years Sin City K9 dog training has been a steadfast, reliable, and, reputable business. Rich Damico as a young boy felt firsthand the loss of a pet. Feeling guilt, loss, and a sense of accountability, he made a decision. After years of training with world-renowned trainers learning and seeing different styles, he knew his mission. While working with NASA, and multiple agencies he solidified his mentality. Rich's drive turned into what can I offer others. Knowing the special skill set that he had acquired. He turned his knowledge into a simple but effective 3 STEP SYSTEM. Learning boundaries, teaching verbal cues, and respect for their Handler. Keeping your dog safe and happy is our goal. With us, by your side step by step, you can do this!
