Dog Obedience Training Santa Barbara

Stephanie has been involved in training dogs since 1997, when she acquired her Doberman Pinscher, Cody, and handled him successfully in local AKC conformation and obedience competitions. It was evident early on that she had a gift for working with animals. During her childhood, her family raised puppies for The Guide Dog Foundation (NY) and Stephanie was always eager to be involved in the process. She has also been an equestrian since the age of 4, training and competing horses during her teenage years until she discovered the world of working dogs and competition sports for dogs.

She joined a local Schutzhund club in 2000 and began watching and learning different styles and methods of training. In early 2002, Stephanie attended a seminar on Ringsport and was hooked. She began seeking knowledge and training experience. Stephanie started training dogs professionally in 2002, taking on pet clients in NY while continuing her education.

Through the years, Stephanie traveled extensively across the United States and has also traveled to Europe numerous times to continue her education in working with canines. She learned about different training methods and theories, breeding dogs, raising dogs and competition handling. She also focused on studying aggression in dogs as well as behavioral issues. She has personally worked with and studied under many of the best trainers in the world and has knowledge, experience and ability beyond her years.

Stephanie has handled many different breeds of dogs with temperaments ranging from extremely shy to extremely aggressive and everything in-between. She has also worked with quite a many rescue groups and shelters across the country, giving her the experience necessary to work with common behavioral issues associated with shelter or rescue dogs. She has worked with clients from all walks of life including many celebrities such as Charlie Sheen, Ben Affleck, Nicole Richie, Cameron Diaz, The Madden Brothers, Peter Wentz, Joe Trohman, Rockmond Dunbar, Capital Cities and Trevor Ariza. Stephanie has also had numerous appearances with her dogs on television shows including The Doctors, Storage Wars, Monster Men, Pivot TV and Bill & Guiliana.

ecollar trainingOLK9 uses marker training, but we specialize in e-collar training to gain amazing obedience from your dog. There are a bunch of major misconceptions with e-collar training (see FAQ). E-collar training is more about using a ball as a reward, than it is about using the e-collar.

Off-Leash K9 Training is comprised of off leash dog trainers with experience and training ranging from the US Marine Corps, DOD, US Secret Service, and private sector experience! We guarantee 100% Obedience, 100% Off-Leash! Your dog will be trained to have the same level of obedience as most police/military working dogs!

What we enjoy most is seeing dogs that have spent their whole life on a leash, now being 100% Off-Leash and obedient! We thrive off of seeing the joy in both the dogs’ and the owners’ face when they have mastered a new command without the restriction of a leash.
