Meet the Trainer

I'm Rudy Medina III, and I am the Owner/Master Trainer of Leash In Hand Professional Dog Training in Bryan/College Station, Texas. I’m a member of the National K-9 Dog Trainers Association.


I graduated from the National K-9 School for Dog Trainers in May of 1999. I finished the intensive Master Trainer Course which includes a combination of classroom instruction, hands-on training, written exams, and extensive field evaluations under the supervision of professional instructors. The National K-9 Learning Center is recognized internationally and duly accredited by the Ohio State Board of Career Colleges and Schools.


Feel confident that your dog is in good hands with my more than 21 years of experience in behavioral modification. I’m also certified in the following areas:

• Basic Obedience

• Advanced Obedience

• Scent Detection

• Kennel Management

• Breed Identification

• Search and Rescue Tracking

• Police K-9

• Personal Protection

Comprehensive Dog Obedience Courses and Training Programs

Make sure your dog learns the most important life skills with the all-inclusive dog obedience courses and training programs of Leash In Hand Professional Dog Training in Bryan/College Station, Texas. All lessons are private, personalized, and designed to accommodate your schedule. All programs address behavior modification and include verbal commands and hand signals.


Most of my basic obedience programs are pick-up and drop-off, with no overnight stays. Your dog goes to school while you go about your day.


At the end of training, watch your dog demonstrate his or her newly acquired skills at home. After you watch your dog, you’ll receive an in-home instructional lesson about leash handling skills and commanding correctly and efficiently. You will train your dog just as I previously showed you. My goal is for your dog to work for you.


You will always have the opportunity to freshen up your training with your dog. I offer unlimited follow-up lessons to build on your dog’s obedience. Best of all, I’m always available for questions that may arise so never hesitate to contact me.


“Use it or lose it,” is a psychological training principle. You, the owner, must work on your dog’s obedience daily to ensure a lifetime of satisfaction. Your time and consistency will determine your outcome. For any training to work, you must continue to modify old behaviors as instructed.


To begin a program I must first need to do an In home evaluation so I can meet & greet all and so your dog recognizes me before training begins. The evaluation fee is $125 in the B/CS area. The evaluation fee is deducted from the final quote I will give you at the end of your evaluation. All programs are custom so there are no cookie cutter price ranges, I need to see how much work needs to be done. I offer a lifetime guarantee on training and unlimited follow up. I stand behind all my training and I give more than 100% and I need that from you the owner!

Price ranges from $500 to $1500 for Basic Obedience programs. Pricing depends on the evaluations, programs, behavioral problems, and commands requested. All programs add on to each other. All vaccinations must be current before any programs begin.
