8 Month Old Vizsla
I cannot express enough how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE this program. We got our Viszla puppy in April and have tried so much training. We tried the books, we spent the money for training, we watched the videos etc. NOTHING seemed to be working for us and Bosco. Finally, after a few months of research my husband and I decided to bite the bullet and try this Training Program. I am not going to lie, I was completely skeptical about the whole thing. When Nikki came to our home a complete sense of calm overtook me. While I missed the heck out of my pup, it was worth every single minute. If I didn’t know any better, I would have thought he wasn’t my dog! I was so impressed and felt awesome that when Bosco returned, Nikki stayed with us until we understood how to use the new techniques with him. I respect these trainers and all the work they do into helping train our pups and then US on how to keep all of us living a healthier, happier and less stressful life!!
5 Month Old Dachshund
We are beyond pleased with the results our 8 month old miniature long haired dachshund, George, had with his trainer, Sarah, during his two week board and train program. Sarah picked up George at our house and brought him back to us upon completion of the program. She stayed with us for a couple hours demonstrating and teaching us George’s new commands. Sarah sent us pictures and videos daily of George’s progress and answered all our questions prior to his stay, during, and continues to do so after. George went from being a puppy with a Napoleon complex to one with self confidence in just two weeks. His random, incessant barking has stopped. He heels without a leash like a pro. He sits in place on command, allowing us to eat dinner without him begging for food. Now, he comes when called inside and outside of the house. Overall, he is much more calm and easier to live with. He’s now like a mature dog rather than a crazy puppy. He hasn’t lost his personality at all. It comes through even more now because we are not constantly correcting unwanted behaviors. We couldn’t be happier with the service Sarah provided and care she showed for George and our family.
1 Year Old Pitbull
We signed up for the 8 lesson package with Alex and it has done wonders for our family! After our puppy took positive reinforcement training at PetSmart, he still would not listen to our commands. The dog was running the the household and choosing to ignore us on a regular basis. My fiance and I were feeling helpless but after finding Off Leash K9’s training videos online, we decided to try the Off-Leash training. I was nervous at first about the concept of the “shock collar” but the truth is that you use the collar at a pretty low level most of the time, (and it feels like pins and needles if you try it on yourself). So, it’s really not that bad! My dog is no longer running the house and he listens to commands so well that I hardly need to get his remote or click to remind him anymore. It’s so nice also that I can let my dog run around in the unfenced backyard or at Washington Park dog park without worrying and letting him be off leash. Definitely recommend!!
9 Month Old cattle dog
My dog is a very high energy and very stubborn puppy who thinks she rules the world. Thanks to Stephanie, she is learning to listen to me. She is a very sweet dog who did not know how to let others know that she is friendly and only wants them to stop and pet her. She would bark loudly at passers-by and lunge at them. When she came back from spending two weeks with Stephanie, all of her bad behaviors was gone. I was worried about using an e-collar on her but she is very happy with it. Her tail is wagging and she looks up eagerly at me wanting to do what I ask of her. I was very surprised at how low the stimulation on the collar was for training her. The collar goes from 1-100, and Stephanie had her trained to 4 to remind her of her task and 11 to teach her. Plus, my puppy was well cared for and loved. i received pictures and videos of her every other day. Because I am a nervous mommy, Stephanie texted me each day with her progress.
8 month old lab
I have one lesson left with Amee, and to be honest it’s been the best decision I’ve made for my lab. Before he would never even come or pay attention to me when I gave commands. Now he can come, sit, lay, heel and his favorite – BREAK! When we would go on walks he’d chase after rabbits and take off. Now I can walk him at night off leash without concern he’ll run away. He actually gets excited when he sees me taking out the collar! This has been a great experience all around. I highly recommend Off Leash Training. Amee, my baby’s trainer is so full of energy and so delightful, even at 10AM in 30 degree weather/snow/rain! She’s explained everything thoroughly – I ask a lot of questions, and she’s always so patient with me. I HIGHLY recommend Amee as your trainer and Off Leash Training in general a thousand times over!
5 MONTH OLD LAB
We have a 5 month old white lab, we brought her home in May. She is a sweet dog but has a very strong will, wanted to be the boss. As she grew it got worse and worse, we dreaded anyone coming to the house, she would jump, bite, and not listen at all, we felt completely out of control and were considering not keeping her. Well we heard about off leash k9 training, it was to be our last ditch effort or she was going to have to go. She returned home on Sunday from two weeks with her trainer, she is a completely different dog, I mean total transformation. We are overjoyed that she is actually enjoyable, we couldn’t say that before! We are so very thankful to Alex and all she did with our Bella and how she took time to work with us also to keep up the good work she started. She has checked on us several times since Bella has been home. If you have a dog that is out of control and your ready to throw in the towel, call this organization first, you will not be sorry, your family member will return home a new dog!
