Where do I begin!!!! We were in a MESS with our mini sheepadoodle’s lack of behavior. Every day was so trying!!! He was running the show and that changed after Brad came into all our lives. Within 2 days… you read that right…2 days we don’t know who this dog is. Jackson actually COMES when we call him. He actually WALKS NEXT TO US. Do. Not. Hesitate. To contact Brad. Your home will be a different place. THANKS BRAD!!!

It was wonderful working with Brad as he trained my dog and I on how to better communicate. You can tell that Brad truly loves dogs and this is more than just a job for him. He worked well with my schedule and was patient with all of my questions!

Brad helped us with our four australian shepherds! He was so patient and knowledgeable with the approach we had to take to start controlling our pups! Our youngest is a 8 month old pup that needed help behaviorally and in just two sessions it has helped immensely! Thank you for your help Brad!

Brad is fantastic, there aren’t enough good things to say about him! I am in a wheelchair and it was extremely difficult to walk our dog Loki on a leash because he would get it tangled up in my wheelchair and would pull me whenever he was distracted by something. My 16 and 11 year old sons were always having trouble walking Loki because he would do whatever he wanted and not what we told him. Brad got us on the schedule within 2 days. Loki was outsmarting us every chance he got and once Brad taught us that we are in control, not Loki, it all fell into place. Now Loki is only going out off leash and does not run to any distractions unless we give him permission to. When I tell Loki to come, he comes right over and sits next to me until I release him. I wish there were more than 5 stars to give Brad because he would definitely get them.
I recently had the pleasure of experiencing Great Off Leash Dog Training and I must say, it was nothing short of exceptional. From the moment I reached out, Brad was welcoming and knowledgeable, setting a high standard for canine coaching.What stood out to me was Brad's expertise in handling dogs of all ages and breeds. My dog, who can be quite challenging, was met with patience, understanding, and effective training methods that showed immediate results. The trainer is not only skilled but also genuinely caring and passionate about their work.
Absolutely love Brad and his company. What a great experience!
Brad is fantastic! Incredibly kind, patient, and passionate about enriching the lives of his clients (both human and dog)--I can say, without question, Brad has earned every single 5 star review (and he has a lot of them)! We're thrilled with our experience. Highly recommend!When we adopted a 13 week old puppy, one of our first priorities was finding a trainer to work with. We wanted to make sure our new addition was set up for success. After reading his philosophy/mission, we knew he was our guy. As soon as you meet him, you immediately know his ultimate goal is allowing dogs to enjoy life. Off-leash = freedom = joy!Brad got us on the schedule SO FAST. After just one session, our puppy had learned "Come" and "Sit" commands--and performed them CONSISTENTLY. By our final session (only a month later!) we were wandering, off-leash, around other dogs, ducks, kids, skateboarders, bikes, etc.Breed, age, and intelligence (obviously) play a role. And he takes all of that into consideration. Brad meets each dog (and owner) where they are. He sent us updates throughout each training session, and took his time working with us directly afterwards to make sure we felt confident. Even now, after we have completed our sessions, he is still just a phone call/text away.

We are so happy we got a chance to work with Brad. Not only did he help teach Remy, our 3 year old lab, but he also taught us so many things as well! We had to stop taking Remy on walks and out in public because of his behavior while on a leash. Now we can take him everywhere with us! Thank you Brad for everything!

My dog is not a beginners dog. He has a strong predatory drive and strong hunting instinct which makes him chase long and far. When he sees or gets the scent of game he locks in and has no recall. Most people would not be able to control him and would lose him.I was required to go out of town, however, I would not have made the trip if Brad didn’t watch the dog.I left with complete confidence entrusting my beloved dog to Brad. He is the only person I would leave my dog with knowing his talent and capability to train and work with a high energy difficult dog.He truly is a dog whisperer and genuinely loves them too!Rob R

I can’t say enough about Brad Cranston and Great Off Leash Training.After only 2 sessions Enzo was a completely different dog.I joked to my boyfriend Mike that if Brad could train Enzo in only 2 sessions to be a semi normal dog … I was sending Mike there next! 😁Well Brad kept word…..After only 2 short sessions, Enzo went from being a complete psycho jumping on people and dragging me down the street, ……… to walking every morning off the leash staying by my side.It gave him this crazy happy confidence as well.Brad, Mike and I really can’t thank you enough.We are proud to be part of the GOLD Dog family.❤️🐾🦴

My dogs barking got so bad I had to start searching for a trainer. I came across Brad on the internet so figured it couldn't hurt to reach out. It sucked because we were in different states, but he had a solution thankfully. He did a ZOOM session and taught me how to use it and correct the dogs behavior. After just one session with him I started getting control of the barking. Highly recommend if you're looking for an easy way to gain control of your dogs bad behavior without having to leave your house.

My girlfriend and I got a German shepherd/Australian shepherd mix puppy together named Remi. My girlfriend already had an Irish doodle named Kyra, that I couldn’t believe was so well trained by Brad. When we got the new puppy, I already knew exactly who to go to for Remi because I wanted her to be just like the first dog he trained. Remi was only three months old who came to us with no confidence at all, who would raise her teeth at other dogs and bark. After speaking with Brad, he decided to meet with Remi. He felt that he could work with her even at her young age. Remi is now almost 5 months old and is a friendly, confident, super happy, well trained puppy! He also took his time with me to train me into feeling confident in Remi as well. Brads training is beyond belief and of the highest quality. I cannot recommend him enough!!

I rarely write reviews but Brad is amazing at what he does and deserves to be recognized. After learning about Brad's off leash training style, I was confident he was going to help my 1.5 year old Vizsla and I tremendously. Brad is attentive, tailors sessions to your specific needs/goals without the "extra fluff" and makes things so simple. Other trainers suggested several levels of obedience classes and/or 100% recall prior to off leash training which I felt was a bit excessive. After 1 session, there was a huge difference in my dog's off leash ability. Brad is truly gifted and I can't say enough positive things about his training services. 10/10 would recommend. Thank you Brad!

I would highly recommend Great Off Leash Dog Training. Brad is the owner and the one I worked with for my 18 month old standard Goldendoodle (75 lbs)Brad took the time to coach me in the training and work with the dog. It was exactly what my family needed to gain control. I couldn't be happier with choosing Brad's training.Well worth the investment and you can tell Brad treats you as more than a customer. Trust his system and you will be happy with the final product and direction.

We have an almost two-year old Cane Corso mix, Carl, and a five month old Rottweiler puppy, Zelda. Before we met Brad, Carl was an incredibly anxious dog making it extremely difficult to take him anywhere. Brad was able to build Carls confidence allowing him to go out in public without all of us being a nervous wreck. We are so impressed by everything Brad was able to achieve in only 4 sessions. We still have some work to do with the puppy, but he built us a great base to start off with, ensuring us a great future with our two pups!

Brad Cranston worked a miracle with our sweet dog, Cookie! She is a 2 year old, small German Shepherd mix and was found abandoned, taking care of her 8 puppies! When she came to us she was afraid of everything, falling to the floor in a submissive posture every time anyone approached her. I sought out training for her more to help increase her confidence than to work on off-leash training. BUT... WOW!! Am I happy we found Brad and Great Off Leash Dog Training! In just 3 sessions with Brad, Cookie became a different dog! She is confident, happy, and playful! I walk her daily in our neighborhood off leash. I take her hiking regularly, off leash, and I have complete confidence in her behavior. We were thinking all of these wonderful reviews were too good to be true, but that is absolutely NOT true! Brad loves the dogs he works with and trains the humans pretty well too!! We felt confident in all of his instructions for us when we wrapped up our training with him. Cookie spent 3 hours in busy Congress Park on a lovely Saturday afternoon, off leash the entire time and with perfect behavior! We are delighted we found Brad and the results are well worth the investment!! Make this happen for your dog! You will be so happy you did!! Thanks Brad!!!

Nothing less than a wonderful experience. I highly recommend “Great Off Leash Dog Training”! The difference in my dogs behavior and the amount of freedom that was gained; made this worth every penny! Thanks Brad!
If you are looking for a flexible, professional and effective trainer look no further than Brad. We hired Brad to help us with our (then) 8month old Newfypoo Gus. The change was noticeable after the first session! Brad showed us how to communicate more effectively with Gus and his response was immediate. We are now able to walk off leash anywhere, neighborhoods, parks etc. Brad also customized our lessons to include solutions to everyday manners (charging the door, counter surfing etc.).We now have the tools we need to see our gentle giant reach his full potential! He's actually about to take his CGC test and the skills we started with Brad made it possible! He even offered suggestions on how to better manage our older dog who has always had behavioral issues. Throughout the process he was always available to answer questions and encourage our growth. Thank you Brad!

Even after a year, our two year old rescue continued to be an escape artist. We couldn’t open the front door or walk Skye out to the car without putting her on a leash. I had been reluctant to use an e-collar, but we really needed to do something for her safety and for our peace of mind. Brad did an amazing job training Skye, as well as teaching us how to use the collar effectively and humanely, along with commands and praise. We are all so much happier since Skye’s been living life off leash. We have a dog that loves to run and now has the freedom to do so without us worrying that she’ll run away. Thanks so much, Brad - You have a wonderful way with dogs and we couldn’t have done this without your expertise!!!!

Brad is “Gold”. He can take any challenge thrown at him, and find an answer/solution to it. We first started with Brad when our dog Oscar was a puppy. He whipped him into shape just after the first session. We felt like we had a new dog.To this day, Oscar continues to be the best dog ever. One of Oscar’s favorite things to do is go out and get the mail or bring out the garbage with us. He also lives for his daily leash free walks. He loves the freedom of being off leash. None of that would have been possible without Brad. Brad has also helped us to work with Oscar’s timidity around strangers and other dogs, which we had been struggling with.I really can’t say enough about how wonderful Brad is with not only dogs, but with their owners. He is responsive, and receptive to everyone involved.Thank you again, Brad!
Working with Brad has absolutely changed our lives with our 9month old golden doodle, Atticus. Brad connected with him immediately and spent 3 solid half day sessions not only training Atticus, but also educating us on how to successfully allow Atticus off leash in pretty much any situation. Brad is amazing at what he does and we give him our highest recommendation!
After getting our puppy, Harry, about 9 months ago we were at our wits’ end with his behavior. Walks were miserable because he pulled the whole time… our guests were always subject to “Harry the Hurricane” throughout their whole visit. We knew he was a good boy deep down but needed to be trained. Our friends recommended Brad and from our first conversation I felt confident he would be the perfect fit for us. He picked right up when I called and we were on his schedule within a week. His knowledge of dog’s behavior and breed tendencies is so impressive and allows him to tune right in to each individual dog’s needs. I couldn’t walk Harry without being dragged and would never dream of taking him off leash… Brad had him trained within a few hours. We can now get him the exercise he needs off leash and when he does need to be leashed for walks, he walks nicely. When we have guests over he is under control. We credit this all to Brad and are looking forward to a long life with our Very Good Boy!

Brad is the best of the best. Trustworthy, dog whisperer, and most of all truly cares. Milo went from barely listening to phenomenal recall and completely able to walk off leash without fear on my end. I’m confident in how to handle him, and know how to reel it in when we get off track a bit. I’ve recommended Brad to lots of people and will continue to do so. This is really where he shines and both us as owners and our dogs are lucky to have him!
Brad is amazing. I started my pup young and he was full of puppy energy! Brad had him trained in no time and was great about training ME as well! My comfort level and my pups confidence speaks for the work Brad does. Well worth the investment!🙌🏼
