Aaron Mann - Trainer

Aaron Mann is a very experienced trainer for Off Leash K9 Training Grand Rapids. Aaron grew up loving dogs his entire life, including Labradors, German Shepherds, Saint Bernards and various mixed breeds. He took his passion for dogs and served our country in the Army as a explosive dog handler. Aaron successfully led infantry troop movements with his K9 companion without any lives lost. After his military career, he served as a police officer for the Lansing,MI. He continued his training at the World Famous VLK training facility in Indiana, studying patrol, detection, and tracking.

 Aaron’s passion for dogs and our community has allowed him to combine his life’s work to help “Any And All Breeds” reach their full potential. We take a good dog and transform them into nothing short of amazing!

Jake Reger - Trainer

Jake grew up around hunting dogs, hunting German shorthairs in the upland for grouse and partridge led to a passion for a hard working well trained dog. Years later two Great Danes with no manners made Jake decide to give Off Leash K9 training an opportunity to give him freedom with his dogs. The night and day difference when those two came home lit a fire inside him that he had to learn how to give that freedom to other families.

Three years later Jake now works hard to give that freedom and opportunity to other families and their dogs who, like him, also thought that freedom was unattainable. Jake also enjoys training his Lost Pet Tracking malinois Han, and his new field trial prospect Odin in his free time.
