ABOUT OUR TRAINERS
Meet The Off Leash K9 Team
Hayley Ponds - Head Trainer
Hayley Ponds – Hayley has had a passion for animals all her life and especially dogs. She lives in the Jacksonville area with her 3 dogs a GSD/Malinois, German Shepherd and Border Collie. Hayley has extensive knowledge with herding and working breeds. Hayley graduated from Richlands High School and holds an Associates Degree in Science with concentration in Health from Fayetteville Technical Community College. While working as a Kennel Technician in Jacksonville Hayley capitalized on various skills and techniques in basic commands and understanding of K9 behavior in large and small groups as well as 1:1 situations. During this time Hayley wore many “hats” and began to focus on the dynamics of training many different breeds.
This is what lead her to Off Leash K9 Training. Hayley’s goal is to help her clients understand their pet and how to communicate effectively and consistently in various environments with different stimulus present. We are very happy to have Hayley as part of OFF LEASH K9 TRAINING JACKSONVILLE.
