Training Courses




I’ve known Ron Pace for many years and have witnessed over and over his skillful ability using his leash and collar technique to train and communicate with dogs. Ron teaches the owners how their dogs learn, what they are thinking and why they are doing what they are doing. With Ron’s guidance, owners are able to better understand their dogs through their body language. Ron teaches owners to train their dogs.

I became personally involved with Ron’s instruction program when I took three dogs through his obedience program over the past five years. As a foster mom for the Humane Society I had the opportunity to adopt two dogs. Both dogs had their own issues. Our rescued field spaniel had been severely abused by her first owner. She was aggressive towards men including my husband and son. Through Ronís method of training, his ability to read and understand dogs, Tawny has left her turbulent life in the past and is now a trusting, oving and loyal dog. We are blessed to have her in our lives.

I fostered our second dog, Cinder, since she was three days old. When she started to show signs of dominant behavior at an early age, I started her in Ronís puppy pre-school classes then his formal obedience program at six months of age. She is now an adult and is a healthy, smart and extremely energetic dog. Through the training program we have learned to keep her dominant behavior under control. I have learned to read her every move. I know what she is thinking and can act on it if need be.

Ron is a brilliant dog trainer and a true professional. His talent and gifted ability to read and communicate with dogs is incredible. I have been involved with animals all my life and spent many years grooming and showing dogs.

I researched other types of training methods but nothing came close to the level of training Ron provides in his program. Completing Ronís trainer/instructor program has been everything I hoped for and more. The trainer program is intense and comprehensive. I spent hundreds of hours watching and finally had an opportunity for hands on training. I progressed through the program and experienced many different dogs and a variety of personalities including aggression, dominance, shyness and fearfulness. The next part of the instructor program is spent learning how to teach owners to actively participate in training and work with their dogs. Ron places a high importance on ensuring the owners one on one involvement in the program so that they are better able to learn to communicate with their dogs. I spent 2 years apprenticing in Ronís professional trainer/instructor program and once I completed it in 2009 I was hired by him and have trained/instructed well over 100 dog owners per year since then. Once I lay the foundation with the private lessons Ron takes them to the next level with biweekly group classes that are included in the program.

Ron’s program is not only challenging but gratifying. I have experienced owners who deeply love their dogs but are frustrated, at times to tears, at the inability to even walk their dog on a leash. Through commitment and dedication, I am looking forward to working with the owners and their dogs to build a quality relationship and hopefully a positive life changing experience for both. Please come and observe one of our private lessons or a group class to see for yourself the magic that has made this program so successful.
