I had a friend recommend Chesapeake Canine to me and although it was a drive for me to meet with Rick, it was so worth it. My dog was highly reactive to other dogs and he was able to change this almost immediately. He was able to bond with my dog in a way that no one has ever done before. My dog absolutely loved him and Rick showed me how to walk him loosely on a leash, how to create obedience, and how to enrich my relationship with him through play. I highly recommend Chesapeake Canine.

Rick is amazing. I would highly recommend at least getting a consultation. He is obviously an expert in the field.
My working line GSD was extremely dominant and aggressive toward people. Fine with dogs. After 4 weeks of intensive training, he is not exactly comfortable around people but he is safe. Rick taught me how to lead my dog and show him who is in charge. My dog now takes direction from me and has learned how to create space for himself if he is feeling un-comfortable, instead of reacting. Chesapeake Canine is the best!
My GSD was highly reactive to everything. Within minutes Rick had him paying attention to him and following him around. It took me about a month to be able to do the same. But he is no longer reactive and looks to me for everything. I couldn't be happier. The knowledge I gained from the experience has prepared me for all future challenges.
I had my dog trained to be off leash by Chesapeake Canine. Every step in the process went exactly as I was told it would go. It took about the month but my dog absolutely loved the process and loves her off leash freedom. I would highly recommend Chesapeake Canine.
I went to Chesapeake Canine because my dog pulled like crazy on a leash. I thought I had tried just about everything. Rick gave me one lesson which took about 2 hours and the issue was fixed. He also followed up with multiple e-mails. This would be my only complaint. $300 for two hours work seems a little expensive. In fairness, he did say that he didn't know how long it would take but that he could probably fix the issue in one lesson.
I talked to several trainers in the Annapolis area and they didn't want anything to do with my aggressive pit bull mix. Rick with Chesapeake Canine told me that Pixie could be rehabilitated but it would be a lot of work. He was right. Although I have had dogs my whole life, I had no idea how badly my behavior had influenced her. He taught me how to train and live with my dog and her behavior has completely changed. She is now fine around people and other dogs.
Rick was able to connect immediately with my fear aggressive German Shepherd. He was extremely reactive to other dogs and I was not able to get him to listen or walk loosely on a leash. He now walks nicely on a leash and looks to me for direction whenever he sees another dog. Rick was able to accomplish this by using only treats and praise. I am amazed at what my relationship has become with my dog and highly recommend Chesapeake Canine.
