Frequently Asked Questions

Is this program considered "Purely Positive "?

“Purely Positive” dog training is a training method that focuses solely on positive reinforcement and rewards, without any use of punishment or correction. We prefer to use “Positive Reinforcement,” as we reinforce good behavior with praise, treats, or other positive stimuli. However, unlike “Purely Positive” training, we will address dangerous or bad behavior if necessary. If your dog likes to chase cars on busy streets, we certainly don’t want to ignore that behavior.

What's the difference between Clicker & Marker Training?

Clicker training and marker training are both forms of positive reinforcement training. Still, they differ in the specific type of “marker” used to communicate to the dog that it has performed the desired behavior. A “marker” can be a verbal cue like a “YES!” Clicker training is just what it sounds like: a clicker marks the exact moment a dog performs the desired behavior. The choice between the two often comes down to personal preference and the dog’s specific needs.

Who is this program designed for ?

This program is for any dog owner who is ready to begin their pup’s dog training journey with an early introduction to basic obedience commands. It is also perfect for dog owners who aren’t yet comfortable with e-collar training or other traditional balanced dog training methods.

What rewards are used in positive reinforcement training?

We use different training rewards for different dogs. Treats are the most commonly used reward in positive reinforcement training as they are highly motivating for most pups. But we may also use clickers, toys, verbal praise, playtime, etc.

Is there an age requirement or breed restriction?

Although there is no specific age requirement, if you have a new puppy, you should call us first so we can decide together the best time to get your puppy started.

I had the best experience ever! My trainer did an OUTSTANDING JOB! I never thought about the support they provide during after and even when something came for me. I could not thank her and this team enough!!! They were so easy to work it. This has been the best trained dog I have ever had. I could not have done it with them!

HIGHLY recommend Off Leash K9 training to anyone who has a dog!!!!! This was the BEST thing we ever did for our baby girl!!! With this training, she has become much more calm and confident, as well! She knows her commands so well! I can take her everywhere and always get the best compliments on her behavior!

I can’t thank Off Leash K9 enough! Ollie is so much more confident on walks which makes it more enjoyable for us both. Even without the e-collar, he walks at a heel 90% of the time. When not, he still walks with a loose leash and checks in with me frequently. I no longer fear he will escape and run off.

Awesome! this training has helped me a lot with my dog as far as taking her out in public and being able to feel safe around other people and dogs, not worrying about any incidents happening. Also being able to having my dog knowing different commands helps the day by day routine be a lot more smooth

Off Leash K9 Training worked a miracle in just 2 weeks. We got outstanding results. Our 2 pits NOW respond on command. They are friendly and passionate about dogs. They have GREAT communication as we got pictures and videos of our pups daily. I NEVER had to worry about our babies. I HIGHLY recommend them.

The training program for both of my dogs (one a senior, one a puppy) worked well. The reinforcement for the older dog helps as his age limits his willingness to interact with other dogs. Our puppy responds well to basic commands so much so that we can let her off leash will hiking without concerns. We are very happy with Off Leash K9 Training.
