Welcome to Off-Leash K9 Training, LLC
“Your Twin Cities and Central Minnesota Dog Trainers”

Off Leash K9 Training of Minnesota is proud to bring world class obedience training for every dog, regardless of age, breed or size, to Minneapolis/St. Paul, St. Cloud and Alexandria, Minnesota areas. We offer e-collar training for dogs and positive reinforcement training for puppies. All of our lessons are private, one-on-one with you and your dog so we can address your specific concerns.

What is an e-collar?

Modern day e-collars use the same technology that you’ll find in TENS machines that are used in physical therapy. Our training methods use low level stimulation like a “tap on the shoulder” for dogs, and our results speak for themselves. Our ultimate goal is for your dog to be flawlessly obedient without stimulation from the collar, with distractions, and we work with you and your dog to make that possible.

What sets us apart from other trainers in the area? 

We offer a few things that none of the other trainers in the Minneapolis/St. Paul, St. Cloud and Alexandria areas can:

1. A Guarantee. We guarantee that you’ll see a difference in your dog at the end of the first lesson AND we guarantee your dog will be flawlessly obedient if you follow our guidance for 30 minutes of practice between lessons. If you don’t see a difference at the end of the first lesson we’ll buy the collar back from you and refund your money for the remaining lessons.

2. An off leash future for your dog. Our goal is for every dog to know what it’s like to live off leash – free! And for every owner to experience the pride, confidence, and joy of having a dog off leash that is reliably and consistently obedient, under any level of distraction.

3. Hope for dogs of ANY BREED, ANY AGE, and ANY SIZE. We don’t discriminate! Dogs are never too old, too fat or too slow to learn using our methods. We can also help blind and deaf dogs, and dogs with other disabilities overcome them and be confident, obedient pups! Aggression or confidence issues? Call us – those are our specialty!

These are the dogs that we LOVE to help: dogs that are generally obedient except when distracted, dogs that are not obedient at all, fearful or anxious dogs, dogs with fear aggression, dogs with dog aggression, dogs with people aggression, dogs that bolt when outside without a leash, dogs that pull on a leash when walking, puppies that are 5+ months old that have not had any/much previous training, dogs that are destructive/bored, dogs that behave dominantly with their handler/other people/other dogs, dogs with behavior issues such as jumping on people, counter-surfing, excessive barking, etc. We LOVE it, because we can see, each week, the difference in the dog’s behavior – and our clients are always so happy with the results! Who wouldn’t love that job?

Dog Obedience Training Central Minnesota

ecollar trainingOLK9 uses marker training, but we specialize in e-collar training to gain amazing obedience from your dog. There are a bunch of major misconceptions with e-collar training (see FAQ). E-collar training is more about using a ball as a reward, than it is about using the e-collar.

Off-Leash K9 Training is comprised of off leash dog trainers with experience and training ranging from the US Marine Corps, DOD, US Secret Service, and private sector experience! We guarantee 100% Obedience, 100% Off-Leash! Your dog will be trained to have the same level of obedience as most police/military working dogs!

What we enjoy most is seeing dogs that have spent their whole life on a leash, now being 100% Off-Leash and obedient! 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.
