ecollar training

OLK9 uses marker training, but we specialize in e-collar training to gain amazing obedience from your dog. There are a bunch of major misconceptions with e-collar training (see FAQ). E-collar training is more about using a ball as a reward, than it is about using the e-collar.

Off-Leash K9 Training is comprised of off leash 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 as most police/military working dogs!

What we enjoy most is seeing dogs that have spent their whole life on a leash, now being 100% Off-Leash and obedient! We thrive off of seeing the joy in both the dogs’ and the owners’ face when they have mastered a new command without the restriction of a leash.
