Frequently Asked Questions

Is this program considered "Purely Positive "?

“Purely Positive” dog training is a training method that focuses solely on positive reinforcement and rewards, without any use of punishment or correction. We prefer to use “Positive Reinforcement,” as we reinforce good behavior with praise, treats, or other positive stimuli. However, unlike “Purely Positive” training, we will address dangerous or bad behavior if necessary. If your dog likes to chase cars on busy streets, we certainly don’t want to ignore that behavior.

What's the difference between Clicker & Marker Training?

Clicker training and marker training are both forms of positive reinforcement training. Still, they differ in the specific type of “marker” used to communicate to the dog that it has performed the desired behavior. A “marker” can be a verbal cue like a “YES!” Clicker training is just what it sounds like: a clicker marks the exact moment a dog performs the desired behavior. The choice between the two often comes down to personal preference and the dog’s specific needs.

Who is this program designed for ?

This program is for any dog owner who is ready to begin their pup’s dog training journey with an early introduction to basic obedience commands. It is also perfect for dog owners who aren’t yet comfortable with e-collar training or other traditional balanced dog training methods.

What rewards are used in positive reinforcement training?

We use different training rewards for different dogs. Treats are the most commonly used reward in positive reinforcement training as they are highly motivating for most pups. But we may also use clickers, toys, verbal praise, playtime, etc.

Is there an age requirement or breed restriction?

Although there is no specific age requirement, if you have a new puppy, you should call us first so we can decide together the best time to get your puppy started.

Client Success Stories

satisfied customers have seen remarkable changes in their dog's behavior & composure

We signed up for the Two Week board and train. It's been a little over a week that we've got our dog back and I'm blown away. I dropped off an insecure pup and what I got back was a more confident pup. Our trainer was Avery Anderson, and I can't begin to thank her enough for the work she put in training our Lucy.

Mya came to us with absolutely no manners or training. Off Leash K9 Training was just what she needed to become a great dog. She is absolutely a joy now. She walks with us without a leash and listens to our commands. I would highly recommend Roger and Avery for all your training needs.

Roger was our trainer. This is our second time with him. Roger is very knowledgeable and personable. You can tell he really enjoys his job. Training was day and night difference with our dog. He teaches you how to teach your dog. Great training, very affordable, and recommend to anyone I talk to complaining about their dog. Thanks again Roger! Sammie has a shot at being as good as Greta.

This was an incredible experience working with Off Leash K9 Training! I took the 4 lesson package for basic commands and I was blown away that my dog knew each new command within 15-30min! I got to practice under supervision before leaving each lesson to make sure I knew I was working with my dog correctly, and Roger was also available by text for any questions outside of the classroom.

Thank you Roger!!! This was our family second attempt to find someone to help us with our Belgian Malinois, Zuko. The first 15 minutes of the first session and we knew we made the best decision. Zuko loves to go to school and he’s loves Roger greatly. Zuko doesn’t know a stranger and was over rambunctious and we have all learned skills to have better behaviors.

I can’t recommend K9 Off Leash training enough! Roger sent me picture updates everyday of what my dog was learning. Day of pick up, he explained and showed everything my dog learned during his one week board and train. Great experience with results!
