Meet Christine - Your Off Leash K9 Trainer in SW Florida!
Christine - Owner
Christine has been in the business of training dogs for almost a decade. She grew up in a military family and once she graduated from National K-9 School for Dog Trainers she jumped right in to training service dogs for veterans with PTSD and successfully placing over 150 dog and handler teams. She decided she needed a change of pace and joined the Off Leash K9 Training team and hasn’t looked back. She loves working with the “problem dogs” and looks forward to helping families live happier off leash lives with their pets.
Dirk - Trainer
Dirk started with Off Leash K9 Training as a client! Dirk first came to us with his Doberman, Godric, who came from a rescue situation where he was abused and had some serious issues where his aggression grew towards dogs, people, and even against Dirk. After going through the board and train, It was life changing, literally, with the opportunity to change the lives of owners and dogs alike, Dirk came aboard the Off Leash K9 Training as a trainer! Today, Dirk thrives in helping troubled pups and owners effectively communicate, bond, and learn from each other for a better and easier lifestyle. “Changing lives one dog at a time!”
Sherry - Sales & Service
My love of dogs started at a very young age. My grandmother breed Shetland Sheepdogs and I attended my first dog training class at the age of 11. I always knew I wanted to work with animals.
When I was Assistant Shelter Manager for my local Humane Society I was involved with starting our “Second Hand Dog” training program. I had the opportunity to work with a number of dog trainers in our area. I joined the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, attended numerous seminars, workshops and yearly conferences to learn. I eventually became a Certified Pet Dog Trainer, Head Trainer for the Monadnock Humane Society in Swanzey, NH and taught classes for the MSPCA in Springfield, MA.
I truly believe a dog is most happy when they are getting BOTH physical and mental stimulation. Well trained dogs create happy dogs and happy owners! That’s what I love about dog training!
Kyle - Trainer
My love for animal’s began early on in my life with family pets, but really took off when I got an opportunity to work with police K9’s in Northern California. From there I found my passion and I started working with pet dogs and understanding dog behavior. My main goal is to not only produce well trained happy dogs, but it is also to reinforce the bond between owner and dog as well to create a clear form of communication between the two.
Karina - Trainer
My name is Karina, I started dog training when I got a German Shepherd puppy. I quickly learned I was a bit over my head so I began to learn as much as I can to train him properly and build a better relationship with him. Learning about him took me through a journey to be becoming a trainer starting at Petco and then offleash. I enjoy teaching parents how to be a leader an a friend to their dog.
Laurin - Trainer
Laurin has been involved in the world of dogs a majority of her previous 7 years of employment. She comes from a law enforcement background where she specialized in animal protection law in which she pursued criminal cases surrounding the treatment and care of domestic animals in Virginia. What she witnessed inside and out of local animal shelters pushed her to make the jump of joining the Off Leash K9 Team. Laurin saw the overwhelming disconnect between humans and their dogs, and wanted to be a major part in bridging that educational gap. Her favorite part of the job is being able to watch her work not only repair, but build stronger relationships between clients and their furry family members.
