ABOUT OUR TRAINERS
Meet The Off Leash K9 Team
Branden Barnes - head trainer
Branden was born and raised in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. He spent many years passionately working with and rehabilitating shelter dogs to prep them for adoption. Branden also worked for a local kennel that focused on show dogs. After moving to Ohio and receiving a degree from Kent State University, Branden decided that desks jobs weren’t for him and decided to pursue his true passion…working with animals. Now with a strong foundation having worked with many top trainers, Branden is excited to bring Off Leash K9 Training to the Cleveland area!
