for his expertise in helping owners resolve canine behavior including; aggression nuisance barking, jumping up, chewing and
much more. Ron has spent years researching the different aspects of dog training and perfecting humane methods of
communicating with your dog.
Ron has worked as an instructor for the Washington State Police K-9 Association and has provided dogs and training for

It is clear that Ron Pace has not only developed an effective training method but he has been able to impart its
effectiveness to others. This ability is what makes him outstanding in the well populated field of dog training experts. Dog
owners who learn from his methods can go home and communicate with their dogs as well there as on the training field. This
is training that transfers. This is training that can work for you.
Ron says, a child grows up needing an education to develop communication skills. Learning how to communicate effectively
with a dog in a language it understands is the first step in establishing control. It is important that all breeds of dogs
have proper training, and equally important that the owners are properly trained to handle and understand their dog in order
to enjoy their pet to its fullest potential.
Ron and his wife Patti, run their full-service training facility on five scenic acres in Tacoma, Washington. The center
offers a professional trainer/instructor course, breeding of high quality German Shepherds, boarding, doggy daycare and
