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.

"We just picked up our girl Cookie from Mandy at Off Leash. I am so impressed with the work that Mandy did with her. She’s like a new dog- actually listens to commands and complies! We humans have also been trained on how to keep up the training Off Leash has started.

"Off Leash K9 was the best thing for my dog. After trying pet store obedience, I knew my dog needed more. He came to me as a stray with major fear issues, causing him to not be able to go on walks or in public without being afraid of everything he heard.

"They did a great job with our puppy. She did the 2week boarding training. Before sending her to training we tried at home and some days it seemed like we were doing well and other days it seemed like everything went out the window.

"We have been attending training sessions with Danny Walker and absolutely could not ask for a better trainer. Danny’s work with our 7 month old golden doodle, Ellie, has been essential to building trust, communication, and healthy boundaries regarding her behavior and her attention span.

"We recently sent our 20 month old husky/pit mix, Louie, to off leash k9s 2 week board and train. He stayed with their trainer Mandy. She kept us in the loop the whole time and gave us great updates every night! It was really impressive what she was able to teach him in the two weeks.
