Rick and Heather Dillender


Rick and Heather Dillender own A Fresh Perspective Dog Training in Albuquerque, NM. They specialize in behavior rehabilitation for all levels of issues, including aggression, fear, destruction, hyper-activity and others. They have worked with hundreds of families over the last several years, and have developed a unique method and approach for addressing behavioral issues that is gentle, straight-forward and highly effective. They have used their approach to develop programs for no-kill animal rescues that can stabilize behavior for dogs in facilities, and have developed an extensive Service Animal training program that pairs rescue dogs with disabled individuals as teams. Any issues the dog may come with can be addressed through this method, and within a short time can be put to work as fully functional service animals. They also offer a 12 month Instructor Training Program for individuals wishing to certify as trainers in their proprietary method.
