Off Leash K9 Training – Knoxville is part of the highest-rated dog training business in the United States! With over 130 locations nationwide, we are the fastest growing dog training company in the world. We’re proud to bring it to the Knoxville area! We offer several different packages to allow clients to decide what program best fits their lifestyle.
We specialize in private lessons, dog behavior consultations, and teaching dog owners to understand why their dogs do the things they do. This training helps create a strong bond between the owner and dog without the restriction of a leash. We believe that 98% of all dogs can achieve this high level of obedience: regardless of breed, size, shape, or age!
Our training technique works for dogs of all ages, breeds, and sizes! The Off Leash K9 Training system is a proven system that changes both owners’ and canines’ lives for the better. Our company includes handlers with experience and training ranging from different military branches to rescue and shelter volunteers and even former veterinarian technicians.
We provide an obedient, off-leash, and distraction-proof pup at the end of our program! Your dog will be trained to have the same level of obedience as most police/military working dogs.
Here at Off Leash K9 Training of Knoxville, we take your dog’s safety and care very seriously. In order to help ensure that you get the very best care and updates on your dog’s stay with us during their 2-week Board and Train, we incorporate a variety of safety measurements and controls. First, management and yourself (as well as anybody you choose to include) are added to a Google Photos album of your dog that is updated daily with photos (promised to never exceed 48 hours – even in cases of trainer illness or outstanding circumstances – because we are human too) and videos every 2 to 3 days!
Dogs will be dogs, and while Board and Train issues are far from the norm, we do have protocols in place if things do not go as planned. Should your dog’s appetite decrease during their stay, or they receive the smallest wound, you will be notified immediately via management or the trainer and given an assortment of care options that could include your trainer modifying your dog’s diet to increase calorie content and appetite, first aid, or even veterinary care. Any time your dog leaves the trainer’s home, they are outfitted with a GPS Whistle unit that allows us to keep a detailed record of outings and ensure that there is never a situation where we are unable to show the owner via screen shot, exactly where their dog is at any time of the day.
Furthermore, every Board and Train stay comes with a full before and after video that documents your dog’s training journey. You’ll see from the very first day at pickup (or right after) to the final turnover when you get to work with your transformed dog for the very first time! We know how much you love your dog because we are dog lovers just like you! We promise to treat your 4-legged family member and best friend as if they were our own.
Buying a puppy for your home, can lead to many years of laughter and affection. In fact, many would consider a family dog as their own child. However, like any child, most dogs require almost constant supervision. And once you take your eyes off of them for a single moment, there is no telling what they may do, or what may happen to them.
Any responsible dog owner will do their best to keep them from harm, but what can you do when you cannot always be around to watch them all day? Just as you would with a child, you would want to teach them how to be more independent, more obedient, and most importantly, safer, when you are and aren’t home watching them.
You may not be able to ship your dog off of boarding school, but you can take them to one of the highest rated dog training companies in the nation. Off Leash K9 of Knoxville helps dogs all across the nation become their best, learning to leave behind bad behavior and replace it with the obedience that you need from them. In no time at all, you will never have to worry about leaving them alone, or leaving them around others.
