Frequently Asked Questions

Is this program considered "Purely Positive "?

“Purely Positive” dog training is a training method that focuses solely on positive reinforcement and rewards, without any use of punishment or correction. We prefer to use “Positive Reinforcement,” as we reinforce good behavior with praise, treats, or other positive stimuli. However, unlike “Purely Positive” training, we will address dangerous or bad behavior if necessary. If your dog likes to chase cars on busy streets, we certainly don’t want to ignore that behavior.

What's the difference between Clicker & Marker Training?

Clicker training and marker training are both forms of positive reinforcement training. Still, they differ in the specific type of “marker” used to communicate to the dog that it has performed the desired behavior. A “marker” can be a verbal cue like a “YES!” Clicker training is just what it sounds like: a clicker marks the exact moment a dog performs the desired behavior. The choice between the two often comes down to personal preference and the dog’s specific needs.

Who is this program designed for ?

This program is for any dog owner who is ready to begin their pup’s dog training journey with an early introduction to basic obedience commands. It is also perfect for dog owners who aren’t yet comfortable with e-collar training or other traditional balanced dog training methods.

What rewards are used in positive reinforcement training?

We use different training rewards for different dogs. Treats are the most commonly used reward in positive reinforcement training as they are highly motivating for most pups. But we may also use clickers, toys, verbal praise, playtime, etc.

Is there an age requirement or breed restriction?

Although there is no specific age requirement, if you have a new puppy, you should call us first so we can decide together the best time to get your puppy started.

Client Success Stories

satisfied customers have seen remarkable changes in their dog's behavior & composure

OLK9 trained our 6 month old Weimaraner who was just insanely disobedient. I saw an instant change after our trainer had him for only 2 days. I was blown away at how much love our trainer showed my dog. He made him part of his family and out trainer became part of ours. He kept us updated everyday and as much as we needed.

I highly recommend Off Leash K9, Philadelphia. Our trainer was an incredible trainer. From the moment we got in contact he was accommodating with scheduling the drop off of our 8 month old Female Goldendoodle, Tinkerbell (Tink). When you arrive at the location he welcomes you and makes sure to answer all of your questions and let you know what to expect.

Our trainer is absolutely amazing, and loved my 1 1/2 year old puppy just as much as I do! I got picture updates every day, and felt totally confident with leaving my baby with her. I started my dog off with 1 on 1 lessons, and decided that wasn’t the right route for us, so we decided to do the board and train instead.

He still gets excited when people come over but now sits while greeting them. I can’t say enough good things about his trainer. She is amazing. We got updates every night on what Boomer learned that day and what he was doing the next. 5⭐ rating in every way.
