We started our 6 month old Belgian Malinois (Sophie) with Ricky’s 2-week immersion program. To say we were in way over our heads is an understatement! We had not appreciated the intensity of this awesome working breed. But after spending the 2 weeks with Ricky and his team, she honestly came home a different dog. She stopped chasing cars. She was far less reactive around other dogs and we were able to control her prey drive. And she stopped using my hands and arms as her favorite tug toys! We continued with a package of several in-home lessons, which have helped us reinforce her training to keep her on track. Ricky has a natural gift with these dogs and we’ve learned so much from his experience. While at one point we were seriously considering retuning Sophie to the breeder, she’s now just over a year old and we can’t imagine our home without her. So happy we found Ricky and Spectrum Canine. I cannot recommend them highly enough!

After months of debating on if we were going to spend money on training sessions, my fiancée and I finally called Johnny and said we were ready for his help. IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY. If you have been searching for someone to work with, look no further because Johnny is your guy. We rescued a 1 year old GSD with NO manners. He was king of the house until we started working with Johnny. Jumped on everyone who walked through the door, would take off running any chance he got so you would chase him, chased our cat around the house, pulled on the leash like crazy, etc. After one session the change in our GSD was almost night and day. Our sweet boy can now walk by our side unleashed, follows commands, greets everyone pleasantly (my grandma even puppy sits him!), etc. Training your dog the BEST investment. Just know that it is HARD work and you have to stay CONSISTENT. Johnny will give you all the tools you need to raise the dog of your dreams.

I will say that contacting them initially was a little difficult. The contact form kept giving me an error but I was really glad when I saw that you can text their number! !!!Don’t give up contacting them!!! I scheduled a consultation, paid through venmo, and was connected with Dakota. We have two dogs; Berkeley was rescued from a neglectful home about a month ago and JackJack is my dog that’s spent the last year and a half in Philly that I picked up 2 weeks ago. Introducing the two of them; Berkeley attacked JackJack and we quickly realized she gained a lot more negative behavioral issues than we thought. Fast forward 2 weeks, we have a tall gate separating the house to keep the two apart but within eye/sniff sight and we were having mental breakdowns basically every night. People kept telling us that it could take weeks/months for them to be civil but it felt like there was no progress at all. Then Dakota and Jordan showed up for the evaluation. Number 1 tip if you get Dakota, bring a pen and paper because the dude can talk lol Our lives have changed dramatically and it’s only been a day! They suggested we take the dogs for a walk, so we did but under their supervision. It was the first time the dogs were near each other without a safety net between them. We were scared but Dakota acted like it was a regular Tuesday afternoon. I’m happy to report that Berkeley didn’t attack JackJack! She wanted to at least once but Dakota was able to distract her before her thought of murder turned into a plan of attack. Jordan was amazing as well and her calm demeanor helped Berkeley to quickly trust/engage with her. She also gave awesome recommendations for diets and I want to use her help to determine a good meal plan for the pups. We took their advice (what to change around the house/how to get the dogs to respond to us) and as I’m writing this, my partner has Berkeley in her lap, JackJack laying down next to her, we can go about our day like everything is normal, and I am eternally grateful! Seriously amazing! I thought we had to board and train her because we were so exhausted. Now I feel like we don’t have to and we will definitely use them for training sessions!

My pup’s name is Ziggy, who is a 10 month old Mini American Shepherd. He’s been home for 5 weeks from the Spectrum Canine’s Dog Immersion Program. I have been pleasantly pleased with the whole process starting from the consultation with Ricky, the logistical information from Erika and finally, the training and teaching by Johnny. My pup was very intense and reactionary to people and other dogs. Walks were painful for me to the point I would drive a block to the park for a short stroll with my pup then return home. Of course, we attended a few different puppy classes and I followed many training videos with little improvement in his behavior. However, the end point for me was when my pup was growling with his hackles up at my next door neighbor. If I didn’t get control of his behavior now it would only get worse. I would not be able to enroll him in herding or agility courses. The team at Spectrum Canine assigned Johnny to worked with my pup and he has laid a strong foundation of discipline for me to build upon. Now walking my pup is a pleasure. I have even gotten a few compliments when walking by others on how my pup is well trained. Now Ziggy will still alert when he sees other dogs but, I have him focus on me by doing some training drills as suggested by Johnny. My pup loves them! There are many dog immersion programs in the Central Valley (where I’m from) and the Bay Area that I could have chosen. With Spectrum Canine I appreciated their honesty about what I can expect from their program, up front cost information and after care support which has been invaluable for me and my pup. In the end you won’t go wrong choosing Spectrum Canine Dog Immersion Program for your pup. BJ

I can’t recommend Ricky and his team at Spectrum Canine enough! I sent my crazy doodle to Ricky for his immersion program. I was really hesitant at first with all the bad associations there are with certain training tools, but Ricky is one of the best teachers out there and made me feel fully comfortable using them on my dog. I can now take my dog downtown and out in public with me without worrying about him being too crazy with all the commotion. I’m so glad I went through with this training; it’s truly the best investment!! Thank you so much Spectrum Canine!

Ricky does an excellent job training dogs in all aspects of a dogs needs. His passion is the dogs and their owners. I compete with my dogs, my dogs were developing some behaviors that were not going to help my scores when I competed, Ricky has helped my dogs to maintain the level of training I needed to compete successfully in a very timely manner. Superb Training!!

My husband & I had the best experience with the Spectrum K9 team. This team is extremely professional and goes above and beyond to produce quality trained dogs. We have an English Cream Golden Retriever and started weekly sessions with Steve at 4 months old. Within the first two sessions we were able to have our pup, Mozzarella.. sit, stay, down and recall. They also provided us with the proper tools (collars, leash leads etc) to be successful and consistent with Mozzarella. We went on a vacation when Mozzarella was about 8 months and sent her to Spectrum K9’s Board & Train, little did I know we would come home to the most behaved, happy and trained puppy. This is the only way we will board our pup in the future. If you’re looking for a quality dog train, look no further!

Ricky and Spectrum Canine cannot come highly recommended enough by me and my family. I have worked with Ricky for a year both through my employment as well as with my personal family dog at home. I saw changes in my dog after just one session. I chose the in home personal sessions and Ricky went over the top to evaluate not just my dog, but myself as the handler and my goals for where I wanted to be. Ricky was very responsive to my needs and did not finish a session until we both felt in a Good place with the days training. I was so impressed I signed up for another round. I never had a problem connecting with Ricky or his staff to schedule appointments and always got a fast response back via phone, text, or email. What impressed me most about Ricky is his versatility in training dogs for several different purposes such as obedience, service, protection, or in my case hunting. He truly can do it all. Not that I had to, but he is well worth any wait to get into the program. Trust me, I have worked with several other “trainers” in the past. Ricky is the real deal. Don’t hesitate to sign up and start enjoying you pup.
