About

We had our first meeting with Don today, to help us with our dogs training. He was right on time, very friendly and cordial, and within 5 minutes, had Peanut responding to his commands! It was amazing! Our goal was to teach our little one some manners, no barking and jumping on guests when they arrive! No licking of any bare skin he can find, and the biggest issue is separation anxiety. Don had specific suggestions for dealing with the anxiety issue, and he is even going to loan us a product to deter the barking, so we can see if it works with Peanut before we buy it! All in all, we are very pleased, and would recommend Don to anyone who wants a good honest and caring trainer.

Specializing in dog behavior modification and exotic animal training, I have been professionally training animals for over 11 years. My experience covers a wide variety of species including dogs and cats, focusing on behavior modification such as housebreaking, inappropriate jumping, proper socialization, and mouthing/biting. My exotic training experience entails National Geographic, Discovery Channel, VH1, and Animal Planet, involving foxes, wolves, big cats, and bears. I spent a year in Singapore working with elephants in educational shows. I am now offering boarding/training program that is in a home environment. Results are guaranteed.

Cody did an amazing job with my HIGH energy over excitable dog. My dog, Domino now obeys us!!! He can be off leash and does not try to run away. Last year he sprained my knee because he is so big and was out of control. I couldn't take him on walks because of his strength and his bad manners!! Today he heeled perfectly with me.....off leash!!!! I am amazed and happy especially since we had tried several other trainers without good results!!! I pick up my other dog from training next week. Can't wait to see her transformation!!! Thank you Off Leash K9 Training!!!

About

We are so happy with Terra! She is down to earth and explains things very well. It's amazing how much difference there is with our German shepherd and Border Collie mix. Not only has been training the dogs, she has been training the entire family. She is very patient and thorough. She also had great advice on the type of beds and leashes for the dogs. So far. All her advice has been wonderful! She even spent time with us talking about different food types. We couldn't have asked for a better trainer! I would highly recommend her to anyone having difficulty with their pooches!

About

There seems to be a great deal of misinformation out there about dog training. From the stories my clients tell me there are a lot of really bad dog trainers out there giving terrible advice. I have plenty of clients that have been to two or more trainers before coming to me that were unable to solve their problems. Do lots of research, ask lots of questions, read lots of reviews online before ever choosing a dog trainer! I AM THE ONLY TRAINER YOU WILL FIND THAT WILL GUARANTEE YOU WILL BE SATISFIED WITH THE SERVICE I PROVIDE. The first step in changing any dog behavior is to make sure your dog takes her lead from you. Once that piece is in place, you need to have someone that knows what they are doing show you what to look for in your dog's behavior and how to respond to it in a way that is going to reinforce the behavior you want and at the same time discourage the behavior you don't want. This is extremely difficult for most people and even many dog trainers don't get it right. The challenge is that every dog and owner is different and what works for one dog and owner doesn't always work for all of them.

Many consider me the number one dog trainer in North America because no one is getting better results with behavioral problem solving, especially with aggressive dogs. No one is getting better results when it comes to getting dogs to listen off-leash without shock collars.

The dog is very dog reactive. Was able to complete a basic manners class as she is very attentive, but has extreme difficulty on walks if she sees other dogs. Difficult to take her out because of this, but she is very easy to train as far as basic manners. She does get along well with our other dog.
