I have a 3 year old Belgian Malinois (Dex) that has a great deal of energy but is very smart. I was having some obedience issues with him that I wanted to address in an official manner. I conducted a lot of research regarding dog trainers in the area. My goal was to find someone who possessed a great deal of expertise in training dogs, someone I could trust to get Dex on track with basic obedience and maybe teach him more advanced skills as well. My research led me to Off Leash K9. I read up on Willie Harrell, his vast experience with K9's and training, as well as the numerous positive reviews of his training programs. I contacted him and set Dex up for the two week in-house board and train program. Dex started April 1st with one of Mr. Harrell's trainers, Daniel Clark. I was updated via E-mail and videos during the course of his training as to his progress. I was very impressed with how quickly he advanced in his training. When his training period was complete, last Saturday, I met with Mr. Clark and he went over Dex's new skills, as well as the training collar, in detail. Mr. Clark told me Dex was very smart and learned all of the basic skills in a couple days so he worked with him on some more advanced skills for the remainder of the program. He asked me several times as we went along if I felt comfortable with, and understood, what he was telling me. He went above and beyond to ensure I understood the instruction, the proper use of the collar, and Dex's new capabilities. He was genuinely concerned with making sure I had everything down. Since Dex returned home, I've been working with him on his new skills to get him even more dialed in on some of the more advanced things he learned. Mr. Clark has checked up on us a few times already too since I got Dex back. I cannot express with enough emphasis how much the training program helped Dex, me, and my family. Prior to his training, Dex was always first to the door. He would do about 10 spins before I got there and would literally bash his face through the door on his way out and back in. Now he knows door manners...so he sits and waits until I give him the command before going out or coming in. He also knows sit, down, come, place, heel, touch, extended sit/down, come to heel and through. I'm so grateful to Off Leash K9, to Willie Harrell, and especially to Daniel Clark for training Dex and making him the accomplished and well-behaved dog he now is. I couldn't have done it without them. I highly recommend consideration of Off Leash K9 for your dog training needs. I certainly will look to them again in the future for any advanced training I wish to pursue with Dex. Thank you Off Leash K9!

My son suffered a TBI about 7 years ago. He recently got a rescue dog for a service/therapy dog. K911 has done a phenomenal job in training both the dog and my son. LOL. Kevin knows what he is talking about and he has patience. Thank you for a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Melissa is such an amazing trainer. She understands animals better than I've seen. ...and I grew up in a family with a AKC obedience/show GSD. So I knew what I wanted. We currently have an almost 2yr German shepherd who had social issues, obedience and manners issues. Melissa immediately detected what was wrong, what caused it and had results so quickly. She was able to get our shy,fear biting dog to play with dogs at the dog park in basically 1-trip! She's like hiring Ceasar Milan in Vegas! She taught our whole family how to work with our GSD AND our little Shih Tsu who has anxiety issues. Melissa and the kennels have SO much experience. She will develop a training schedule for your schedule and needs. I had been looking for a good dog trainer for 1.5yrs. I wanted AKC training. No "shock" collar training. Positive reinforcement and not just another person saying they can train a dog. We had gone to puppy classes at Pet Smart-save your money- if you want someone who KNOWS animals, Has a great reputation, Is knowledgable about AKC, showing, training, guard dog training..stop searching and call VonWeiss Kennels! Best dog/Animal trainer in Vegas area!!!! So glad we found her!

Samantha is a gem. She is professional, kind, a real dog person who will do wonders with your dog. She got my Doberman, Nick to behave on a leash in one walk. I would recommend her highly she is nice, patient and always is punctural and upbeat. I am so happy to have her as my professional dog walker and sitter. Consider using Samatha and you will be very satisfied. In closing Samatha is GREAT....

Rebecca has a true love for dogs. That love shows through with how she treats your dog while she is training them. I would take a dog to her for training if I needed to.

    I live in Los Angeles and travel to Vegas often and always bring my dog, Schnoopy with me. I had an all day business commitment that didn't allow me to bring him along and I'm not use to ever leaving him alone for more than three hours. Lynn was recommended to me so I called her up and asked if she would meet with me beforehand so that she could meet Schnoopy, it was clear that she was a true animal lover the ways she interacted with him. I could see my little Schnoopy felt comfortable around her. I'm extremely over-protective about Schnoopy and gave her very detailed instructions about his care, which she took very seriously. The next day while she watched him she sent me frequent updates and pictures. Lynn was wonderful with him and super accommodating to my last minute request for a dog-sitter. My only complaint is that she lives in Vegas and I wish she lived in LA so she could watch him here! Thank you Lynn! Licks from Schnoopy!

    Very good working knowledges of dogs. It was not rushed he took his time and did not push my 6 month old Doberman puppy. While training he still let him be a puppy and figure things out. I was was pleased with our first meeting and the outcome. Would highly recommend Luis to anyone

    Nancy was such an amazing petsitter! We used her while we were away on our honeymoon and it was such a relief knowing we had someone so professional watching our animals. We have five animals (2 cats, 2 dogs, and 1 rabbit) so I'm sure she had her hands full, but she handled everything so well. I loved that she kept in touch via text while we were gone as well as sent us photos of our animals to show us how they were doing. She cleaned everything before she left which was very nice of her. We used her services for overnight stays and pet taxi. We'll definitely be using her again in the future!

    About

    Hi my name is Keelin, I have always had a passion for animals and growing up as a kid pets were family members. I think the most important thing about choosing someone to watch over and take care of your family member is knowing that the person looking after them cares about their happiness and well being as you do. A typical day with your pet depending on his/her needs could include a walk/drive to our local park to play! I absolutely love pet play, it is such a big part of their health and fitness and bringing a smile to their face. We have great walking paths in my complex as well. Of course some well deserved rest time and then a bath service is available with a good brushing to help settle in for the night. I have and can work with reptiles, fish, small mammals/rodents as well as a variety of farm animals. Quotes are available and assessed based on species/care needed. I do have three furry/feathered children in my home. My cats Bastet, Pepper Minthe and Aries, then there is my Parakeet Apollo. If your furry loved one is not a fan of cats there is no need to worry. Give me a heads up in advance and Bastet, Minthe and Aries have their own private accommodations available. Bastet has lived with three rascal pups in the past and has minimal issues with dogs. My roommate has a sweet pup her name is Buttercup! She is a small terrier mix and she has gotten along great with my three cats! She is jut getting socialized with dogs and has been amazing with the guests that have come over so far! She is very playful and active. If need be she does have her own personal accommodations while guests are present. I do have a 7 year old Daughter named Esmae, she is a big animal lover! She loves learning about animals and learning to take care of them. I prefer that all pets that visit our Pet Friendly Home also be Kid Friendly! Thank you and I look forward to caring for your furry family member!

    Deb Manheim is my dog trainer of choice. She has worked with my dog since she was 10 weeks old, using positive reinforcement techniques that have made all the difference in the world. Deb understands dog behavior. Because of this, she develops multiple ways to train each individual dog that makes sense & is fun for the handler & dog. Deb provided me with outlines of each training session so I could review what I learned on my own, which I have found to be invaluable, even now when I am doing refresher training or training something new. I have been taught the foundations from Deb. Lastly, she is patient, non-judgemental & down to earth. After all, much of dog training is about "training" the owner/handler, so I appreciate her kindness & sense of humor.

    I'll walk and take care of your pets while you're on vacation. My business began with my love for dogs, cats and horses.

    About

    I have experience training dogs, exercising, walking and spending time visiting with animals. For example, I trained and exercised two mid-sized poodles. They were a challenge as one had a high level of fear of other dogs and the other constantly guarded the frightened dog. It took a good month or training to reduce the heightened fear response from hyper jumping and whimpering to walking quietly beside me. I care about the dogs I work with. I utilize a goal of compassionate cooperation between myself and the dog to achieve the goals of an enjoyable relationship.

    About

    I watch dogs while their owners are on vacation, hospital, etc. My love for dogs makes this a rewarding and fun career.
