If I could give 100 stars I would. Brad is a miracle worker. I found Great Off Leash Dog Training from a friend of mine when she posted her dogs transformation on Facebook. We were originally going down the road to install an electric fence for our 6 month old puppy at our house so he could run around. We soon realized that while the fence would be great at home it wouldn't help us when we took our dog off our property. We decided to give Brad a chance to train Tucker so he could enjoy running off leash without running away from us from wherever we might go. Well Tucker can do that and more. From sitting to healing to coming on command Tucker enjoys his new found freedom from off the leash.10 days ago, Tucker would have taken off on us if off leash or starred at us like we were crazy because we were asking him to come. Brad, thank you so much for taking care of Tucker like he was your own. We are forever grateful! Jen and Steve Carron

Friends of mine recommended Brad and Great Off Leash Dog Training to me I was VERY indecisive about sending Thráin (my baby boy) for off leash training and I went back and forth at least 3 times and I'm grateful that Brad put up with my anxieties about sending my dog for 2 weeks for his board and train program because I couldn't be happier with the results! Brad sent videos and pictures and was in constant contact with me over the course of 2 weeks ensuring that my boy was in in great hands! Not only did he care for my dog like his own but he provided exceptional training and left me feeling very comfortable with his training techniques to remain consistent for Thráin! Furthermore, he was beyond accommodating by picking my dog up and dropping him off 3 hours away from his home!! I'm thankful that I was able to fully trust someone to care for my dog and give him the necessary tools to make our lives better!

Brad started working with my dog, Artie about 18 months ago. Before we started working with Brad, Artie would constantly bark for what seemed like no reason, demanded attention and did what he wanted when he wanted. He was a menace and all the training in the world didn't seem to make a difference. After hearing about GOLD I decided to give it a try and i'm glad I did. Within 1 week Artie turned from Dennis the Menace to a well mannered gentlemen. Every time we catch up with Brad for a refresher session or walk in the park Artie gets so excited to see him. Additionally, when Artie stays with Brad while we are away I know he feels at home and is treated like a king. I highly recommend GOLD to anybody who is looking for a trainer for their dog.

A previous co-worker of mine referred us to Brad in order to tame our crazy little lab/ jack Russell mix, Prim. Before Brad and Great Off Leash Dog Training, Prim was such a good girl at home and in her own yard; but, when we left the safety of our own home she turned into a psycho! She would dart away the second she didn’t feel tension on her leash, jump on people, tug like crazy and totally forget her name and her family— she wanted to see the world and had no boundaries. Due to these behaviors, she missed out on a lot of adventures like hiking and swimming because we couldn’t trust her. Thanks to Brad she will no longer miss out- she is like a whole new dog! Since training we can trust her on/off leash with heavy distractions.
After session 1 Prim loved Brad. She would get so excited to see him for each session and she instantly respected him. He was able to get my wanna he sled dog “heeling” in 30 minutes! Amazing! I would recommend Great Off Leash Dog Training to anyone with an unruly dog. Thanks for everything Brad!

Our German Shepherds,Dustin and Jenna came home Friday morning from Great Off Leash Dog Training, LLC ! They are doing so good and we are learning how to be consistent with their training. It is a work in progress but I am amazed at the results! We were so impressed, we sent Dylan, our Border Collie, and he was a star in training! They are all still active puppies but much more behaved now (sometimes with a little help)!

Brad is such a wonderful trainer and they love him as was evidenced by when he came to pick up our Border Collie, Dylan, the Shepherds were extremely excited to see him and wanted to get in his car with him!

He is going to keep doing training with us until he is satisfied that we know what we are doing! That is real commitment and caring! Brad is now a part of our family and we are so blessed to have found him!
