"When I called Ron to work with our GSD Luta I was primarily concerned with aggression toward other dogs. Luta had been to four obedience classes and did reasonably well with basic commands. But nothing I tried was effective for her dog aggression.
During the time I worked with Ron I came to realize that he was teaching me how to very effectively use five basic commands to refocus Luta's attention away from other dogs and back to me: come, sit, down, heel, and stay. Working with Ron has made an amazing difference.
We worked on those five commands under a wide variety of situations, gradually working ourselves closer and closer to other dogs. By our last session together Luta was calm while other dogs passed by.
Luta is more relaxed, attentive, and confident. And she is having more fun when we go to open spaces to do field work. Runs like the wind and returns as soon as I call her. On walks she has a look at other dogs then returns her attention to me and we continue on.
Before starting with Ron my wife and I were hesitant about using a correction collar. But after I tried it on my own neck I realized it was not painful, only attention getting (like scuffing my feet on the carpet then touching metal). After six weeks of working with Luta under Ron's guidance it is now rare that I use any correction at all - most everything is positive reward with treats, pats on the head, and scratches under her chin. The correction is there if needed, but rarely used.
An Open Letter To Anyone Considering Rapid Response Dog Training:
I adopted an Australian Cattle Dog mix in January 2004. I had never owned a dog from the puppy stage before and hoped that training a dog from the start would give me a better, more predictable companion. I chose my pup (after love at first sight left and common sense returned) based on the fact that the two other dogs of this breed I had come in contact with were smart, loyal and appeared to be good with their owners.
However, despite all of my efforts, our lives were turned upside down by an animal that was consistently outsmarting us. Gabi would bite our hands and nip at our feet when she wanted attention. She would eat any kind of paper or fabric she could get her teeth into.
We tried everything imaginable-cans with pennies, spray bottles, dog obedience training, reading books, growling back…you get the idea. I was concerned not so much for us, because I believed the biting was playful rather than malicious, but for others who might come into our home, especially children.
In a chance meeting with someone, I mentioned the difficulties I was having with Gabi. This person told me that she had hired Ron and that he and Charlie had worked wonders for her dog, Lola. In desperation, I looked up the website she had referred me to and the rest is history.
Ron came out and did an assessment of my dog, followed by a demonstration with Charlie. It was obvious by the way Charlie looked at Ron that the retriever truly loved and wanted to please his owner. Ron assured me that my dog could indeed be worked with and was a ‘good’ dog.
After our first real session with the e-collar I was able to immediately control or eliminate approximately 90% of Gabi’s negative behaviors. This was such a motivator that practicing with Gabi for 15-20 minutes a day was a joy. Each day she got better and better.
Within two weeks (remember Gabi is very smart!) she was consistently coming when called, heeling off leash, sitting, laying down, obeying the "no" command and able to play freely with us in the yard. Being able to play Frisbee or ball with her in my unfenced, large corner lot became one of the best benefits of the program.
Her biting was drastically reduced and at this time, 4-6 weeks later, while she still needs reinforcement in this area, is under control. (Biting is a strong urge in this breed according to sources.) She is a now a calmer, even more lovable and totally loyal dog.
I cannot thank Ron enough for giving me the kind of pet I was hoping for and returning normalcy to our home. While the financial investment in the program was a concern to me at first, I now realize that I could have spent far more that this in sequential dog obedience courses, which would not have given me the same result. I now look at the sessions as a bargain. I was also concerned about the use of an e-collar, but friends, who are dog lovers, reassured me that using the e-collar was preferable to having to give up a dog I loved because I couldn’t control her.
I was afforded a rare opportunity to receive private instruction at my home. Ron is professional, patient, has expertise in this area and possesses a gift for being able to work with the individual to improve his/her skill. He is truly an educator not only of dogs, but also of humans.
Marcy J., Proud owner of Gabi.
I want to thank you for the invaluable training and guidance you have given Molly and me over the past five weeks. She now knows all her commands and can now heel and is off-leash thanks to your professional training. You had such intuitiveness and patience with her.
The IQ Remote Trainer is a great learning tool which enhanced and aided in the training process. I would surely recommend your training to lots of dog owners . Molly and I are grateful for all that we've learned from you and will continue to reinforce the Rapid Result Training every day.
Sincerely, Kathleen S."
"Before working with Ron, I was having a very hard time training my husky puppy, Faolan. He is very sweet but very high energy. He seemed to pick and choose when he wanted to listen and was not easy to walk as he constantly ran in circles and pulled.
However, even after the second session working with Ron, I saw huge improvements in Faolan's behavior and he seemed to enjoy our walks more with the added commands and training. I had heard from a number of people that huskies could not be off-leased trained but Ron quickly proved that to be untrue.
But his training did not just help with walks. Faolan has been much better behaved around the house and happier as well. Ron has so much knowledge and experience training dogs that his guidance was worth every penny.
And after much research, Ron is one of the only trainers I found that offers affordable one-on-one training sessions rather than in a group. I would highly recommend Ron's services to anyone considering dog training. He is the best!"
"Max, the doodle, is now just over four years old and is such a wonderful pet. Thanks mostly to you and your training. If you remember, we were at our wits end and almost ready to give up when we found you and you helped us become a happy family. Max has added so much joy to our lives and the lives of almost everyone who knows him.
Thanks, Trish Blackman"
Hi Ron, I just wanted to thank you again for everything that you taught Natalie, Abby, Oscar, Milo, and myself over the summer. I try not to think back to the days when they were absolutely crazy and I basically got plowed over when I walked in the door. Our son was born on September 15th and the dogs have done so well with him thanks to you. We have also been able to find a national wildlife refuge that I can take the dogs off leash and everyone is amazed that the dogs come back to me consistently when called. I've even taught my husband all that I have learned so that he is able to take them as well. Thanks again for all that you have taught us and let us accomplish!

To say we were desperate is an understatement.
We had just brought home Snickers, a rescue dog, and that very first night he attacked our other dog. Our son tried to pull the two dogs apart and got bit!!! Over the next few weeks, we had to keep the two dogs separated at all times, and it began to feel like we were prisoners in our own home. Snickers was proving much more that we were capable of handling on our own. I began to look for some help. After one false start with a different trainer, I found Ron's number in the yellow pages and called. During that brief phone conversation, Ron offered sensible advice — and reassurance.
A few days later, Ron came to our house and showed us how well behaved his own dog – Charlie – is. It was great to watch but I must admit I was skeptical. We had had so much trouble with Snickers — aggression toward our other dog, tearing things up, and so on — I had a hard time believing that we could ever get Snickers under control. I definitely did NOT believe that we could have him walk with us "off leash in six weeks or less" as Ron's web site proclaimed.
But we offer this testimony: we indeed are walking with Snickers OFF LEASH in just four sessions!! (Rapid Results is certainly a fitting name for his dog training techniques!) Through our training sessions, Ron has offered a wealth of knowledge about dog behavior/s with a highly professional style, laid back but firm — always with the best interests of the dog at its core. I highly recommend Ron to anyone who is in need of a trainer.
So here's a heartfelt thanks for working with us and Snickers. We can now have our two dogs together . . . AND, best of all, we have our life back!

On behalf of Poe's "grandma" thank you for all your help with Poe's training. Rachel and I are both very satisfied with all of your help with his training and very pleased with his accomplishments! If anyone would have told me a few months ago that he would be splashing in a creek and off his lead, I would never have believed it. He has come a long way. We very much enjoyed the time spent with you and Charlie and I think you may have even converted a 'control freak' like me! Believe it or not, I even learned a lot by listening to your helpful suggestions and watching you work with Poe. Many thanks and best of luck to you and Charlie and Sadie! Your work and results speak for themselves, but if you ever need a reference, please feel free to use my name.
