Off-Leash K9 Training in Jacksonville NC
John McGough is Your Jacksonville Trainer
Off Leash K9 Training is excited to bring world class obedience training to the Jacksonville, NC area. Your Jacksonville dog trainers specialize in dog training methods adapted from military and law enforcement using techniques which enable you to successfully communicate with your dog so he/she will be transformed into a well behaved member of society in any situation. We train your dog but we also train you to be a better handler which strengthens a mutual bond built on trust and communication.
In 2004, John McGough started his career in dog training at a small grooming shop in Elizabethtown, NC focusing primarily on problem solving and obedience. In 2006 they moved into a new facility just down the road from a prison in White Lake, NC which allowed them to house and rehabilitate rescue dogs from local kill shelters. In 2007, John was propositioned about volunteering for a program using inmates to train rescue dogs at Bladen Correctional Center. The program saved the lives of dogs, but the impact the program had on the inmates was equally as great. Read More about your trainers.
All of our lessons are private, one-on-one, sessions that allow us to address your specific concerns.

What We Do: Off Leash K9 trains regular household dogs to have the same level of obedience as dogs in the military and law enforcement. You have seen dogs that can walk with their owners down the street and be well behaved in stores, outdoor seating restaurants, and public places. How many times have you said to yourself, “I wish my dog could behave in public like this?”
How We Do It: Off Leash K9 conducts personalized one-on-one private obedience lessons with owners and dogs, utilizing marker and e-collar (NOT shock collars) training for obedience. We additionally do dog behavior consultations and teach owners to understand why the dog is doing what she does. We also provide the owners with the tools to remediate the unwanted behaviors and bring the dog back into becoming the productive member of the family that he was always meant to be. This training can literally save dogs’ lives!
Let’s face it. Most people incorporate their dog into their life. The dog IS your family. The way your dog acts can make your life a dream…..or a nightmare. You send your child to school……why wouldn’t you send your dog to school to learn good behavior? Regardless of Breed, Size, Shape or Age, most dogs can be trained to have AMAZING obedience!
