Train as You Live® Certified
Hi, I’m Brittany! I’m originally from Nova Scotia, Canada but I grew up in New Hampshire. I came down to North Carolina in 2007 to attend UNC Charlotte, and apart from a brief time back in Canada, have lived here ever since! I joined the Off Leash family as a customer in 2009 with my first dog, Lambeau. He was an Australian Cattle Dog/Pug mix with a mind of his own! Although he LOVED to cuddle, he also desperately needed training. Within a few lessons, he was completely off leash playing disc golf with me daily! Training made ALL the difference in his behavior, and allowed our relationship to be much more enjoyable. At Off Leash, I am a dog and people trainer. I do demos, train dogs in people’s homes, and I work with the Jumpstart doggies. Coming from the customer side of things, I know how desperate people feel when signing up for training. We all love our dogs, but sometimes it’s hard to love a dog who causes so much stress. Everyone typically has a little bit of doubt whether their dog could be trained, and I LOVE seeing the switch in their heads when that doubt vanishes! It’s an amazing experience to help dogs reach their potential! Dom (my husband and another Off Leash trainer) and I have an 8 year old Beagle/Boxer mix named Toonie who loves playing with frisbees and snuggling on the couch. We also have a 2 year old Golden Retriever named Goose who is President of the “Let’s Go Play Club,” and is best friends with every single dog that comes through our doors!
