"I found Rick when I began my search for a replacement service dog. With my previous SD being a Dutch I of course wanted another one. From the moment I contacted Rick he was beyond helpful and made sure to send me the puppy that was best fitted to my lifestyle. She is just under 10 months old right now and is more than I could have ever asked for. At 9.5 months old she does every task (and more) that my other SD does and she does them flawlessly. She is great around my 3 and 12-year-old sisters but keeps our house safe from intruders.
We have also been doing bite work for Ring Sports and in the few months she has been in training for that she has excelled. Cinder-Ella is doing more complex things every session as has the ability to go far. At her age she is surpassing some things dogs at 2.5 years old cannot grasp."
"This week she went to Disneyland and she worked the crowd, long 13-hour day, loud noises and odd characters flawlessly. She walked in as if she owned the world and allowed nothing to phase her. Asking that much from any other young pup would almost certainly lead to disaster but not for her."
"She has competed in several obedience events and placed with high scores starting at the age of 6 months."
"VERY few dogs have the ability to be level headed at home and out in big crowds and then a complete psychotic monster on the training field but she is one of the few. At only 9.5 months old she is so stable and done so much already I cannot wait to see what the future holds for her...there is certainly no limitations for her!" - A.Gomez
