Your Culpeper Virginia Dog Trainers”
Bryan Swihart is the owner/head trainer for the Off Leash K9 Training program in the Culpeper area. He is Army veteran with multiple deployments; where he was so impressed with military working dog’s impeccable obedience and high level of confidence enabling them to be the most well trained canines in the world. With a degree in finance he has a solid small business foundation, with the precision and passion needed to transform your dog from unruly to obedient, frightened to confident, timid to content.
Bryan has a lifelong love of dogs starting with his first dog “Squeak,” who used to sleep under his crib every night. He has owned and trained a wide assortment of dogs ranging from Chihuahuas to Pitbulls; including his current comrades, a rejected Labradoodle, an American Staffordshire Terrier Mix, and his newest foster failure a German Shepherd/Hound Mix. Bryan has a special love for “Bully Breeds” and wants to empower people to showcase what wonderfully loyal and loving dogs they really are. After serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, his desk job is not where his passion was. He is bringing his passion for K9 training and love of dogs to Off Leash K9 Training.
Brant Weller is the Massanutten head trainer for the Off Leash K9 Training program in the Culpeper area. He came to Off Leash K9 Training after his Labrador – Pitbull Mix Reginald was tragically hit by a car after running out in the road. While Reggie recovered from his injuries, the trauma that Brant and his wife suffered made them want to prevent such a tragedy from happening again. They worked Reginald and their Boxer – Hound Mix Manfred through the basic and advanced lesson at Off Leash K9 Training, Culpeper. After seeing the amazing results, he was convinced that the training was not only worth the price, but would have saved them the heartache of almost losing their pup. Brant has a bachelors degree with a double major in History/Political Science and Religion/Philosophy is currently the associate pastor at a local church and the wrestling coach at Wilbur Pence Middle School. He hopes and wishes that everyone can feel the pride and joy that having an off leash responsive dog brings. It not only can save your pups life, but brings the enjoyment of being able to take your pups anywhere without stressing about their behavior.
We are thrilled to bring Off Leash K9 Training to the Culpeper area, specializing in the same dog training techniques used by the military and law enforcement. This style of training encompasses their core beliefs and philosophy of consistency, fairness, and crystal clear communication that will turn your dog into a well behaved member of society in any situation.
