We train based out of Jacksonville, Florida and supporting Duval County cities. 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!
We additionally do dog behavior consultations and teach owners to understand why the dog is doing what she does. We also provide the owners with the tools to remediate the unwanted behaviors and bring the dog back into becoming the productive member of the family that he was always meant to be. This training can literally save dogs’ lives!
We are certified CGC evaluators! This is a certification program that is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. The Canine Good Citizen Program is a two-part program that stresses responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs. All dogs who pass the 10-step CGC test may receive a very nice certificate from the American Kennel Club. You and your dog will practice the CGC exercises: Accepting a friendly stranger, Sitting politely for petting, Appearance & grooming, Out for a walk (loose leash walking), Walking through a crowd, Sit and down on command and Staying in place, Coming when called, Reaction to another dog, Reaction to distraction and Supervised separation. This class is perfect for continuing your dog’s education. You and your dog will work toward creating a better relationship while your dog learns to listen to you consistently. As you work with your dog to teach the CGC skills, you’ll discover the many benefits and joys of training your dog. Training will enhance the bond between you and your dog. Whether your dog is ready to for the certification, or you want us to help get your dog ready for the certification, contact us!
They go above and beyond to make sure you are happy…
I just want to say a HUGE thank you to Matt and the staff at Off Leash K9 training. We took our 2 yr old husky that had many issues that needed addressing for the 2 week board and train and she came back her same sweet self but also one that would listen now! They go above and beyond to make sure you are happy with the outcome! Thank you Matt for everything and thank you and Mallory for loving Penny!
I highly recommend Jonathan and this company!
I have done several different training courses with my unruly rescue dog and Off Leash K9 is the only one that stuck! Jonathan was amazing to work with and my dog absolutely loved him! She looked forward to every training session. She used to pull on the leash, lunge at other dogs and charge at the door. Now she is calm and confident and we can both enjoy the off leash life. This training is truly life changing. I highly recommend Jonathan and this company!
Well Worth The Money!
We had Freya go through the basic and advanced training course and it was well worth the money. Freya listens to us off leash, she can place on things we never thought she could, and her confidence in herself has really grown. We had Matt as our trainer and would recommend him to anyone considering Off Leash K9 in Jacksonville
Happy to say both dogs are doing great
Matt did such an amazing job with both my dogs! I have a 9 month old golden retriever that was wild and crazy and a 7 year old wheaten terrier that was dog reactive. Happy to say both dogs are doing great. Both dogs respond to all their commands and the wheaten terrier will now sit and place while other dogs walk passed her. My husband and I can now enjoy our walks and future outings while in full control! I did the 2 week board and train, Matt took excellent care of my pups and made sure to send me plenty of videos showing their progress. I definitely recommend him and this company!
