Dog Obedience Training San Diego California

Off Leash K9 San Diego LLC is proud to be the top dog trainers in San Diego County, California!

This Father  & Son team make a Dynamic Duo!

Both men, served our country with pride in the United States Marine Corps.  Gunner served for over 22 years, participating in Operations Desert Shield & Storm. Followed by his Son Tom, serving over 12 years, participating in the war on terrorism, Iraqi Freedom. A proud military family.

Both are amazing trainers and are proud to bring this K9 training system to the San Diego county area.
Gunner retired from the military in 2001, transitioned directly into the corporate world, taking a position as the Director of Operations for a Information Technology staffing firm located in Southern Florida.  Gunner has always had a passion for developing unruly house hold dogs into obedient well balanced members of the family.  During 2008 he had the opportunity to pursue his passion on a part time basis.  Moving to central Florida, he began working with dogs in his community. There he had the opportunity to develop the skill for training dogs to reliably execute the basic obedience commands. Although the methods he used were satisfactory, they were extremely laborious and time consuming, he wanted to learn a more efficient method to make these dogs amazing.  During 2014 he and his Bride of 33 years relocated to Las Vegas, NV., in order to be closer to his kids and grandkids.

During the same time frame, his son Tom (located in San Diego area) had made the decision to also follow his passion to become a PROFESSIONAL dog trainer. During Tom’s time in the service he found himself being asked to train his friends and co-workers dogs and grew a natural passion for bringing out the full potential of these amazing animals. Tom spent his last year in the service searching out the best dog training schools in the country, it wasn’t until he discovered the hundreds of BEFORE/AFTER VIDEOS from Off Leash K9 Training that he was truly impressed and ready to make a life changing commitment and proceed with his lifelong dream. He made the decision to leave the Marine Corps after 12 dedicated years of active duty. After extensive  research and evaluation of ALL methods of dog training and reputable dog training companies. Tom chose Off Leash K9 Training LLC, based out of Virginia as his preference above all others.

Tom received his training and certification directly under Nick White (OLK9 founder),he mastered the unique training techniques Off Leash K9 Training, LLC is well known for throughout the country. Gunner later trained under Tom and was certified as an official Off Leash K9 trainer by Nick White.

This Off Leash K9 Team of Professionals are here to “unleash the bond between you and your dog”!

What we enjoy most is seeing dogs that have spent their whole life on a leash, now being 100% Obedient and Off-Leash! We thrive off of seeing the joy in both the dogs’ and the owners’ face when they have mastered a new command without the restriction of a leash.
