What Do Our Clients Say?

We sent our 5 month old Golden Retriever puppy Sophie for dog training in Stamford with Rachel at Off Leash K9 Training in early November. Rachel did a fantastic job training both Sophie and us! Rachel sent us pictures and videos of Sophie every day, along with status updates on her progress during training. To this day she still answers our texts and provides support. This is one of the many perks of their programs! I would highly recommend Rachel and CT K9 Off Leash, we plan on using them again once we get puppy #2!


We sent our 11 month Rhodesian rescue puppy, Clara, for training and she came back as a new dog! Sara, the trainer, was absolutely fabulous, she has the perfect balance of being an effective trainer and very loving. She provided multiple videos per day and was great about sending updates on Clara’s progress. We’re so impressed at how our dog is responding to the training. We also loved that our dog lived with Sara’s family during her training vs. being at a training facility. We highly recommend Sara and CT K9 off leash training.


I had my 6 month Doberman do the 2 week board and train with Off Leash K9 Training in Stamford and it could not have been better. I was sent multiple videos, pictures, and updates during the training. She came back knowing all the commands and our trainer Nikki was so kind and helpful for all our questions. She even wrapped our dogs ears for us during the entire 14 day  training, which was amazing. We can’t give enough thanks to Nikki and her team at Off Leash. It was a great experience and we would highly recommend it!

World Famous Dog Training Programs

Basic Obedience

This package comes with four private sessions where our dog trainers in Stamford will teach you and your pet the basics in dog training. Our sessions are held weekly and last at least an hour long. At the end of this package, you will have learned, practiced and perfected a total of seven commands with your dog. This is the perfect package to start off with so you can learn alongside your pet!

Advanced Obedience

This package is combined with our basic obedience package. Your first four sessions will be spent learning and polishing the initial seven commands. Once you get through your first four weeks, the second set will focus on advanced commands! We offer several different advanced commands so you can decide what you and your pet want to learn from our dog trainers in Stamford. Each session will still be held privately for an hour!

Therapy Dog Work

In this eight week program we are focusing on preparing your pet to become a therapy animal. Carefully working through all of our basics and continuing on to train around different distractions and in different settings is how you will spend your eight sessions. With completion of this program, your pup will be ready to get certified as a therapy pet!

Aggression Training

Is your dog reactive and tough to manage around other dogs or people? Do they nip, growl or snarl to a point where you are concerned? Dealing with aggression issues is something out dog trainers in Stamford are always working with! We offer an eight week, one-on-one program with our trainers where you can learn how to work with your dog. First, you will cover all the basic obedience essentials. Second, you will incorporate them into situations where you need to have better control over your pup!

Two Week Board & Train

One of the most popular training course packages that we offer is our Two Week Board and Train program. This style of training could be considered our most effective training package for most families since it takes the work out of it for you. After dropping them off, they will be returned to you far more obedient and less distracted. We like to think of this style of training as sort of a summer camp for pets! Our Two Week Board, and Train program focuses on all aspects of behavioral training and features a bit of all of our training packages combined with an emphasis on leaving your dog distraction proofed.
