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.

My experience thus far has been very positive and rewarding. I have seen quantifiable changes in my dog's behavior, resulting in a considerably more peaceful living environment! I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a dog trainer.

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!

We can't thank both Willie and Lisa for everything they have done for our rescue dog Chance. They went above and beyond making sure he was completely ready before sending him home after the board and train program. I truly enjoy taking him in the car and for walks now. This is what having a pet is all about. I feel so fortunate to have found Willie and Lisa and will forever be thankful! It's honestly worth every penny to invest in training your dog properly. They love what they do and it shows. Thank you again Off Leash K9! Keep up the amazing work! Ronnie, Parisa & Chance

If you want top notch training for your dogs combined with someone who takes care of your dogs like they are his own, then give Willie at Off Leash K9 Training in Las Vegas. I signed up my 2 dobermans for 2 weeks of board and train. Willie spoke with me as the end of the 14 days was nearing and asked if he could keep the dogs a while longer. He said he wasn't satisfied and wanted to make sure I got what I paid for. My pups loved him from the minute they left with him (yes, he came and GOT them), until we picked them up. And now I have 2 dogs who have manners. Amazing!

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!

Melissa is extremely knowledgeable about the GSD breed and is a highly experienced (GSD) dog trainer. Prior to our first session, she researched our GSDs blood line to truly understand the behavioral issues that need addressing for him, and took the time to get the full history from us. She outlined a clear program for training us and our 5 year old GSD, breaking it down into manageable steps for my husband and I, busy schedules and all. I knew from our correspondence prior to meeting in person that she was "the one" - she is the real deal and we are lucky to have found her to help us with our dog's fear aggression issues.

I hired Melissa 13 years ago in New York. I had no idea she was no longer working for the NYPD. I found her here on Thumbtack and did not hesitate to hire her to train my new dogs. She is one of the best K9 trainers in the business and highly professional. She is very easy to work with, has an incredible connection with animals and work diligently to insure your dog(s) are trained correctly. She works with you, teaches you and explains why she uses that particular method. HIGHLY recommend her!

Marlene truly cares for the dogs she trains. She takes notes, brainstorms solutions and is very positive. My dog is always happy to see Marlene and work with her. She also introduced us to clicker training, which works so well for my dog and is a ton of fun.

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.

When I got my German Sheppard he was very wild, loud, and enjoyed running out to the streets every time the garage door opened. I called Sit Means Sit Anthem after looking at their videos on their website and schedule an appointment. In just five minutes in the demonstration my dog became more relaxed, quit barking for everything, and most importantly stopped running into the streets when the garage door opened. I have been with them since February and never looked back, the training program is awesome they will take the time to help you with anything you need. If you want the best out of your dog Sit Means Sit Anthem is the place you need to go!

WOW, just WOW this guy is great with dogs, in our first meeting he got my dog focus on him. He begin explaining me how and why his methods works no matter what. He is a mix of positive and adverse training he call himself a balance trainer. Our first and second meeting was at my home from now on will be training in different parks around the city, he says dogs get used to different scenarios, people other dogs and different situations that build confidence both in dog and handler. He want me to begin doing IPO

Justine trained a service dog for my husband who suffers from TBI and PTSD. She worked long and hard training the dog to ensure that his needs would be met. She spent 2 weeks one on one with Kyle and the dog to make sure that they were perfectly capable of transitioning into their new companionship smoothly. Justine exercised the upmost patience in working with Kyle, not taking lightly his past experiences that most overlook. Justine's motivation and compassion are inspirational. She goes above and beyond in everything she does. Her efforts were life changing. I would recommend her training services to anyone in need.

Dedicated, loving, knowledgeable, caring, and maybe part K-9. I couldn't recommend a better trainer for your dog not matter if the task is big or small. I have worked with her for over 4 years with many dogs and situations. She has personally trainer 2 of my dogs. One from a puppy and another we had behavioral issues with who is stubborn. She took on both tasks with full dedication and heart. Can not recommend enough!

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!

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.

Also have experience dealing with dogs with issues after being abused (dealt with food guarding, fear biting, etc.) Will work on socialization if an issue and building a dogs confidence. If you just keep your dog in the backyard as a yard ornament, do not contact me.
