Ernie first came on the radar of Off Leash as a client with his dogs Bruce Banner and Tony Stark. Training with OLK9 head trainer Abby Hoxha dramatically changed the relationship with his dogs.
Ernie became a certified professional trainer and is a graduate of the Off Leash Headquarters academy in Northern Virginia.
Coming from a background in training elite gymnasts, his unique ability to relay techniques will help take your dog’s obedience to the next level.
Dalton - Trainer
After losing three different deposits to landlords from dog related damage, Dalton decided to take his dog handling techniques to the next level and became a certified trainer with the Off Leash team.
Born and raised in Tampa, Dalton can help take your dog skils up a couple notches as well.
Moriah Grube - Trainer

As a certified trainer with Off Leash in Tampa, Moriah quickly began positively impacting the relationships between Tampa area owners and their dogs.
Tyler - Trainer
An import from the great frozen northeast (New York), Tyler comes to us from the financial world. He traded his coats and journal entries for shorts and leashes.
After being certified as a trainer with the Tampa team, he quickly made smiles all around getting several 5 star Google reviews in his first month.
Estivin - Trainer
Estivin is a Florida resident originally from New York City who began his dog handling journey by doing Schutzhund training with his Cane Corso. This transformative experience served as a catalyst for Estivin, inspiring him to transition from a career in banking to a dedicated pursuit of dog training.
He has successfully harnessed his passion for training by instructing numerous canines in fundamental and advanced obedience skills. Estivin’s experience and attention to detail will help elevate your dog’s obedience and your owner skills to the next level.
