About Off Leash K9 Training
Steve and Lindsey Ward grew up having a great passion for their family dogs. After high school, Steve pursued a career in the family business as a Contractor in the State Department in Washington DC. Lindsey as a young adult worked with a variety of animals in different settings, including a pet superstore, horse stable, and county animal shelters. She later became an Animal Control Officer. As an Animal Control Officer she dealt with a variety of wild and domesticated animals.
The young married couple started their family by fostering a variety of dogs to prepare them for adopting through a local animal shelter. Later they adopted a Malinois puppy. They quickly learned the requirements of training and exercise needed for this active breed. Steve’s love for racing was constantly taking the couple to the Charlotte area.
They fell in love with the area and made it a dream to move from the busy Northern Virginia metropolitan to the more relaxed community. During Lindsey’s career as an Animal Control Officer, she was constantly dealing with aggressive and poorly behaved dogs. As well, their Malinois’ training was proving to be difficult, fearing his behavior would lead down the same road.
However, thanks to Nick White (Owner and founder of Off Leash K9 Training), their puppy is now a well behaved, confident dog. Deciding it was time to follow their dreams, Steve and Lindsey spent months training with the best dog trainers in the country at Nick White’s facility in Woodbridge, Virginia. Now transforming dog’s behaviors, using advanced and modern techniques to provide family dogs to respond with military and law enforcement precision, flawless, off leash obedience, guaranteed!
