Off Leash K9 Training is an off-leash dog training business based in Boise Idaho. However, we have locations throughout the United States. We specialize in private lessons, dog behavior consultations, and teaching the owners to understand why their dogs do the things they do. This helps create a strong bond between the owner and dog and without the restriction of a leash.
We believe that 98% of all dogs can be trained to have amazing obedience: regardless of breed, size, shape, or age!
Off Leash K9 Training (OLK9) uses marker training, but we specialize in e-collar training to gain amazing obedience from your dog. There are many, major, misconceptions about e-collar training . Used properly, with the guidance of certified, professional trainers, a high quality e-collar is less arduous, or invasive than other methods such as choker chains for example. See our e-collar FAQs>>
Off Leash K9 Training employs dog trainers with experience and training ranging from the US Marine Corps, DOD, US Secret Service, and private sector experience. We guarantee 100% obedience, 100% Off Leash! Your dog will be trained to have the same level of obedience seen with most police/military working dogs.
What we enjoy most is seeing dogs that have spent their whole life on a leash, now 100% Off Leash and obedient. We revel seeing the joy in both dog and owner when they have mastered a new command without the restriction of a leash.
