Meet The Owner - Jeff Aman

Meet Jeff Aman, a dedicated professional with a profound commitment to service. With 23 years of military and government experience, he has exemplified resilience and dedication throughout his career. As a disabled combat veteran, he brings a unique perspective to his work.

For the past four years, Jeff served as the Chief Operating Officer at Ridgeside K9 Northern Virginia, where he honed his skills in canine behavior and training. His philosophy revolves around a “crawl, walk, run methodology” establishing clear communication with the dog, fostering a harmonious relationship between owners/parents and their furry companions. Jeff’s passion for understanding and connecting with dogs extends beyond professional boundaries, reflecting his genuine love for animals.

He grew up with dogs, from rescue mutts to fully accredited quail hunting dogs but did not understand the vast power our canine friends hold when they are truly a part of your life in every aspect. The key is communication!
