We started working with Nikki at Off Leash K9 about 4 weeks ago and I can’t say enough good things. Our dog, Cali not only LOVES working with Nikki, but the training has far exceeded all my expectations of what could be done in such a short period of time.
From day one, Nikki took the time to understand exactly what I was looking to accomplish, and ensured I had all the knowledge I needed to do my homework each week. Cali no longer jumps on people, can sit and lay for extended periods of time with all types of distractions, and is all around a happier more secure dog that I can confidently take in public. If you are looking for a trainer in the Birmingham area, there is no reason to look anywhere else!!

Our dog Lewie, an 18 month old Rhodesian Ridgeback, was having aggression/anxiety issues with strangers and new situations. After completing his training for aggression/obedience, he is more confident and less anxious. He is now obedient and in control. I’m so amazed at the transformation!!!
Nikki was awesome to work with. She gave us the training we needed to have an amazing dog!! Our family thanks you so much Nikki!

I was searching for dog trainers in the Birmingham area when I ran across Off Leash K9 and I noticed the great reviews and decided to give them a try. I am thankful I did. I went from having a 7 month old German Shepherd pup with aggression issues - even wanting to attack the trainer he had just met, neighbors and their dogs also leash pulling issues to a completely transformed Shepherd that after 3rd lesson was able to go without the muzzle with complete confidence. I got a fast response when I called Off Leash K9 and great communication for appointments. I was very pleased with the trainer Nikki. She was Awesome and turned a pup that wanted to attack her, into one that was happy to see her in just a few lessons. Axl has learned many things that make life a lot easier for us and I am thankful that Axl and I got to know Nikki. She is a great trainer and made the lessons a breeze and enjoyable. I would highly recommend Off Leash K9 to anyone in need of training for their dog - and I would Highly recommend Nikki.

When I brought home my golden doodle puppy, I knew that he was going to be a very big dog. I started my search for training options in the Birmingham area. I am so glad that my search brought me to OLK9 Alabama and Cameron. Baxter attended the two week board and train program with Cameron at his home. Baxter left us with selective hearing, jumping, counter surfing and pulling on the leash. We received back in two weeks a totally different dog for the better! Baxter is able to walk on and off leash, respond to all his commands very well and is still the same playful and people loving dog as he was before just now he’s a perfect gentleman. I can’t say enough about Cameron as a trainer, he connects with the dogs well and is super easy to work with. While at training I got pictures and videos daily so I always knew what my boy was up to and what he was learning. OLK9 training is the best hands down. WORTH EVERY PENNY!!! Don’t hesitate. Call them today!

We started working with Nikki for our super shy shepherd/husky mix last year hoping to get help with her fear of strangers, her leash pulling, and her heavy prey drive that would cause her to run off.
Nikki has done absolute miracles with her. Her fear of people has diminished significantly, but most of all she has new freedom, as we can walk her off leash wherever we go, and she listens to us, even with all of the distractions.
Nikki went above and beyond in helping us. And, our dog Minnie, just loves her. Highly recommend Nikki and Off Leash Dog Training!!!

Our dog, Yogi Bear, is a very anxious dog. We struggled for the first year on how to manage his behavior and build his confidence. We found Off Leash training and our dogs life and our life has changed for the better!
We did the basic and advanced training session with trainer Nikki. Nikki and Off Leash were exactly what we all needed. Nikki has a wealth of knowledge on animals and animal behaviors of all kind. She is kind and willing to talk and guide you through every step with ease.
Yogi still has his sweet and goofy personality, but the behaviors we struggled with now can be managed. Yogi is happier and has gained so much confidence. He know what is expected of him and he knows his boundaries.
My husband and I have gained confidence in managing his behavior. I never thought I would be able to take Yogi out by myself and now I and more than comfortable to take him anywhere that is dog friendly. I never thought we could allow guests to come over and now more the merrier.
If you are struggling with your dogs behavior, call Off Leash! I promise you will not regret it.

If you are looking for longevity in training, don't hesitate to contact OLK9! My pup had just turned 1 when I sent her for board and train. She is almost 4 now and is still a rockstar!
The best part is the trainers teach you how to continue making your dog the best they can be and offer refreshers for board and trains. Well worth the investment many times over.

Cameron was an incredible trainer! Choosing OLK9 Alabama in Birmingham was the best possible choice for our dog!
We were struggling with a dog who was pulling on the leash, jumping on everyone, barking, and even growling at other dogs. Cameron gave our pup manners AND helped us manage his dog aggression issues. Thanks so much!
