I had my 7 month old puppy Luna working with Mike and another trainer from Off leash for over a week. I was very nervous about her staying with people I didn’t know well and they handled me so well! Lol Luna was fine… I was the one freaked out!! They gave me daily updated and sent me daily texts and video posts. She learned SOOOOO much in the week with off leash. I have a completely different dog! She use to be a disaster on the leash, lung at other animals, run from me when she got loose, would act up in the house… Even to the point of peeing on my sofa when I would leave!
Luna has come so far! We worked with Mike one on one with Luna at the end of her training. He was so good with us and did and extra session when we weren’t sure if things were going right. Less than two weeks after Luna’s off leash training we took her through the airport as my emotional support animal and on a plane! She was amazing. She went through security without leash and collar. She followed my every move. It was the best thing we ever decided to do. She is a great, positive part of our family now and I can literally take her EVERYWHERE. Thank you OFFLEASH!
Thank you for helping to get our rescue dog, Theo, to the point he is adoptable, and soon to be adopted. He was so fearful of everyone since he was not socialized by his prior family. Now he is a wonderful, sweet, confident, obedient boy who can live with his new forever family–happy, playful and loved.
Mike and Alex did an amazing job training my very stubborn teenage German Shepherd Cooper.
It was obvious during the turnover that not only did Cooper know so many commands such as sit, down, place, touch, heel, come and door manners, but Cooper really enjoyed being with them and vice versa. It wasn’t just a job to Mike and Alex. They bonded with my dog and Cooper totally respected them. I definitely recommend Mike and Alex!!!!!!!!!!!
I cannot say enough good things about Off Leash K9 training!! My 2 dogs, Khaleesi (GSD) and Bronzie (Pit/Chow/Bulldog/Everything Mix lol) were 2 nut cases! Loving, but a disaster to take out anywhere, even a simple walk (god forbid there was a jogger or other dog, it was game on.) Not only can we walk them now and be in full control, we walk them OFF LEASH! When I first saw “Any Size, Any Breed” I thought to myself “Yeah right, they haven’t met my crazy donkeys” but sure enough, 2 weeks later I had brand new dogs! Still their same loving personalities, just in control. Being in control also means we get to enjoy them more, such as not having to lock them in another room or outside when guests arrive, or having to squeeze out my front door just so they wouldn’t bolt out. I could go on and on, but it all boils down to the same thing – any issue you have with your dog, I promise you they can help you!
We rescued our dog George, a Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix, about 6 months ago. While he is a GREAT dog, we couldn’t get him to listen to us, and he had some issues being overly protective. I called many, many trainers in the South Florida area to discuss George and the best methods of training him. After hours spent interviewing and researching, I scheduled our first appointment with Mike. I decided on Off Leash K9 training for several key reasons (there are a few more):
- They had great reviews and proven results.
2. They dealt well with me! (a lot of dog trainers I spoke to were difficult to talk to)
3. They were confident that they understood George’s issues and could help
4. I like the idea of having a tool to help to help me as I am not as assertive with George as I should be.
Within the first 15 minutes of the first session, I was pleased with our partnership. Right away, Mike got George to listen, come, and sit. (More than I had gotten in 6 months!!!). The change in George was notable after the first lesson-he stopped pulling on his leash, and he listened to commands. We have just finished our last lesson of basic training, and we are so happy with the results.
Mike was a great trainer who took time to discuss George’s behavior and personality in depth. He never rushed us when the hour was over, and he talked about issues that went past the basic training.
I can’t say enough great things about South Florida Off Leash K9. Mike and Alex are incredible!! I got my Bailey back today after 2 weeks of Board and Train and can’t believe how well trained he is!!! Total 180 degree change yet his happy personality stayed the same.
Off Leash K9 is definitely the best training ever!!! Thank you guys so much and thank you, Randi!
Mike is an unbelievable trainer! We have seen incredible results after only 3 sessions! We are so happy to have found off leash k9 and are excited to continue working with Mike and our pups.
My family and I would like to take a moment to thank you again for the great job you did with our dog Max. We have witnessed a great change in his attitude. We got home and did everything you told us from walking in the house before him to re-enforcing all his commands. When we got home I asked him to come “now rested” and he followed command. I followed to instruct him to heel and he follow through like a champ. We continued to walk down the street and he kept up with me and I finally got him to break on command. For the next hour we practiced come, sit, down, touch, place, through and break. We still can’t believe how much he learned in such a short period of time. You guys have a gift, keep up the good work and we will keep you posted on his progress.
We were all out of hope and no place else to turn to when we finally called South Florida Dog Trainer – Off Leash K9 Training.
We rescued a wonderful dog, Grant, who was a gentle loving dog, but had a serious issue. After trying other trainers, with absolutely no success or progress, we gave up all hope and were contemplating the unthinkable, something that no animal lover would ever want to be faced with.
Mike and Alex came over for an evaluation and we decided the Grant should go to their camp. I know that they worked extremely hard and Grant was difficult. But Mike and Alex did not give up hope and stuck with him.
I want to sincerely….from the bottom of my heart to sing all praises to them…..thank them for saving the life of a gentle teddybear.
Grant is doing so well, we can’t believe it. No more issues, he listens and obeys, and is a completely new dog (well, same dog, but 10x better!)
Mike and Alex are NOT only trainers, they are animal rehabilitators.
I thank them again for their hard work and dedication in saving the life of a wonderful pet.
Off Leash trainers are amazing! In 2 weeks they will train your dog to completely obey. You are able to take your dog with you whereever you go on or off leash without concern or fear for your dog or others. I highly recommend Off Leash. It eliminates much of the stress of dog ownership.
“The experience, the level of professionalism, and the results, all were outstanding. My husband and I both are ecstatic and sing praises to all who listen. And many do; they inquire about Sasha and her before/after conduct. Off Leash has gone above and beyond expectations…Sasha was an amazing dog before this experience, and she’s even more of a joy after….We feel blessed. Thanks to Mike, Alex and Randi…we greatly appreciate. Teresa and Ruben”
“Mike and the OLK9 team have worked wonders with my Husky/ Shepherd mix Ginger. With just 4 lessons she now listens to her commands. I no longer have to follow her around or have someone grab her collar for me at the dog park. When I call her now she comes straight to me every time, I no longer have to pick her 75 lbs. up to put her in my truck, when I tell her to load up she’s right there on her own. I highly recommend Mike and his training abilities to every one I can.”
Off Leash K9 Training and Mike, the trainer, were awesome. I highly recommend them. They did an amazing job with our dogs. I’m happy to serve as a personal reference for anyone who has any questions about them.
