Meredith is proud and excited to offer Off Leash K9 Training to the Memphis, TN area!
Meredith grew up in a small town in South Carolina where a love and passion for animals was instilled in her from a very young age. Since she can remember, her family has rescued dogs of different breeds. She quickly discovered her passion for training dogs when her family rescued a German Shepherd/Chow mix named Duke! A few years after getting her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, and learning about Animal Behavior and Learning, she moved to Memphis, TN. She rescued a German Shepherd/Basset Hound puppy named Louie. After researching various training techniques and seeing Louie’s transformation, she realized that she wanted to pursue her love for dog training professionally.
Meredith trained under Off Leash K9 Training’s owner and founder Nick White where she learned to apply the techniques from this world-renowned dog training system to dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds! The OLK9 system vastly improves the relationship between dogs and dog-owners by allowing clear communication off leash with distractions.
OLK9 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.
We believe that 98% of all dogs can be trained to have amazing obedience: regardless of breed, size, shape, or age!
