Hi, I’m Amber! I grew up in Bronx, NY and currently reside in Stamford, CT. I graduated from SUNY with a degree in liberal studies and early childhood education, but then found my passion for dogs. I have always wanted to work with dogs. I have worked for doggy daycares in the past but then decided to start doing my own services through Rover to help pet parents who did not want to keep their furry friends in kennels while they were away. I am a huge advocate for animals in abusive situations or looking for a home. I involve my own dogs (Luna, 6yr chihuahua pig mix and Dash, a 3yr party mini goldendoodle) in my everyday life whenever I can. Ultimately, OLK9 gave my dreams a chance of being able to work with dogs and benefit their lives forever. I am happy to assist you in your training needs and excited to help your dog become the best they can be.


Hello there, I’m Kelsi! I’ve recently embarked on an exciting new journey, transitioning from being an animal control officer to becoming a dedicated full-time dog trainer in Connecticut. For more than 5 years now, I have been honing my skills in dog training, starting with my very own furry companion, Crab. Initially, Crab struggled with fear aggression, but through my efforts to address this issue, I gained a wealth of knowledge and developed a true passion for training. I am proud to say that I have extensive experience working with various breeds, but I am particularly fond of my three American Pit Bull terriers. Together, we actively participate in a range of exhilarating dog sports, all aimed at enhancing their overall quality of life. I am absolutely thrilled to be a part of Off Leash K9 Training as a dog trainer! My ultimate mission is to assist my clients in creating a life of absolute bliss and harmony with their furry companions. I have always had a natural knack for tackling difficult challenges, especially when it comes to addressing troublesome behaviors. I am excited to meet you and your dog!


Hi Pet Parents, My name is Matthew Hiser, and I’ve had the privilege of being a part of Off Leash K9 Training for over 4 years now. As a dedicated professional, I work with all kinds of dogs, from puppies to service dogs, but I specialize in aggressive behavior modification. I strive to provide effective solutions for managing canine aggressive behavior, recognizing triggers, and transforming them into well-balanced companions. At Off Leash K9 Training, we understand the challenges that come with owning an aggressive dog, and we are committed to helping you address these issues head-on. With years of experience in canine behavior modification, I have honed my skills and techniques to facilitate positive transformations in even the most challenging cases. My approach is centered on teaching dogs how to control their aggressive tendencies and redirect their energy into more productive behaviors. Through personalized training sessions and proven methodologies, I empower these dogs to become better versions of themselves, ultimately fostering a harmonious bond between you and your four-legged friend. I am passionate about what I do, and I take great pride in witnessing the progress that each dog makes under my guidance. I also offer one on one, personalized puppy lessons, to help train and raise a well-adjusted dog from puppy to adulthood. I utilize clicker training techniques specifically designed for puppies. Clicker training is a positive reinforcement method that involves using a handheld clicker device to mark desired behaviors and reinforce them with rewards. This approach is highly effective in teaching puppies new skills, shaping their behavior, and strengthening the bond between you and your four-legged friend. By incorporating clicker training into our sessions, I create a fun and engaging learning experience for your puppy. Through consistent and precise clicking, I can communicate to your puppy the exact moment they exhibit the desired behavior, which helps them understand what is expected of them. This clear communication accelerates their learning process and enables them to make positive associations with their actions. As an experienced dog trainer I understand the importance of early socialization, obedience training, and instilling good manners in these formative stages of their lives. With my expertise and guidance, I will help your puppy grow into a well-behaved, confident, and a happy canine companion. Thank you for choosing Off Leash K9 Training. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with you and your furry companions. Together, we can embark on a journey of transformation, whether it’s turning your aggressive dogs into well-behaved, happy members of your family, or helping to structure your puppy into an even-tempered adult.
