Carleigh and Brent started with Ridgeside K9 Northern VA in 2019. 

They’ve been training dogs since 2017 and originally started because of their own two dogs, Kona and Maui. 

While working for Aaron, they trained thousands of dogs in Northern Virginia. They have trained dogs and owners with every issue and every walk of life and they are now bringing our amazing services to Tampa and its surrounding areas!

Brent Hedge, Owner, started early life as a child living on a farm taking care and spending time with various types of animals. Leading up to starting an internship with a small local company and working his way up in the company and inevitably finding a position at Ridgeside K9 three years ago where he’s trained thousands of house pets from anything to off leash training to extreme behavior modification. 


Carleigh began her life having numerous family pets and as a younger adult got her own dogs Kona and Maui which she spent countless hours training before helping Brent on the Ridgeside K9 Northern Va team for years before also moving to Florida. Carleigh has had a massive role in opening this location in Tampa and is in the foreground of everything going on. She is one of the silent workers in the background keeping everything and everyone in check, she is an absolute asset to Ridgeside K9 and one of the reasons for the success generated here in Tampa.
