Welcome to Great Off Leash Dog Training, LLC

Our mission is to give dog owner's control of their pups - without a leash; everything from etiquette to an array of commands. Etiquette is tailored to your dogs needs and includes (but is not limited to) help with barking, jumping, nipping, chewing, counter surfing, digging, gnawing, sock grabbing and essentially anything you don’t want your dog to be doing. Primary commands include (but are not limited too) recall - come, sit, stay (until released) place, and heel. These commands are all expected to be met without a leash, regardless of distractions. Due to high demand and until further notice, Brad Cranston will only be doing Private Lessons going forward. 

Losing control of your pup?

The relationship between a canine and its owner is a unique connection and can get overwhelming at times. At Great Off Leash Dog Training, LLC, we strive to give all our clients total control of their dogs WITHOUT A LEASH! Our proven techniques and tailored approach has helped dog owners throughout the Capital District finally get the the control they've always wanted.
