Our trainers are recognized by the esteemed American Kennel Club organization as well as our very own Off Leash K9 training academy.


Allow me to introduce myself, my name is LiAndra Terrell. I’m from Albuquerque, New Mexico where I started my passion working with canines since 2018. I’ve worked in different fields; such as a dog daycare and at a local shelter as a kennel technician, where I’ve witnessed many things in the pet industry. I realized I could improve my skills and help dogs in obedience and behavior modification, to help avoid them going to shelters. That’s when I discovered Off Leash K9 Training- ABQ, NM in 2020. Fast forward me and my 3 fur babies moved out this way so that I could continue doing what I love. Overall, I’ve worked with and trained many breeds with different temperaments, specifically specializing in reactivity. My everyday goal is to help struggling canines and struggling owners live a stress free life!


Hey my name’s Rikki and I’m a recently retired NYC K9 narcotic officer, currently living in Long Island NY with my wife and 4 dogs. In 2013, my partner K9 Kaos and I were certified with the NYS Municipal Police and the National Police Work in building, article searches, tracking and narcotics. In 2015, I wanted a better understanding of animal behavior and science, with that I enrolled in the Animal Behavior College where I certified nationally as a behavioral trainer and certified K9 Medic procedures. In 2021, I started working for OLK9 and in 2023 I decided to leave the City of New York on early retirement and stay with OLK9 full time to pursue my dream independently.  I feel that proper structure and consistency can transform ANY dog into a well behaved member of the family.  I treat dogs like family, I respect them, and I admire them for their own unique personalities and differences. It resonates with my passion to train every time I see that light bulb come on and they master a skill. That’s what this job is all about.”


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.
