ABOUT OUR TRAINERS
Meet The Off Leash K9 Team
Ciarra Elle - Owner
Ciarra has had a lifelong love of dogs and other animals growing up on the island of Kauai in Hawaii. Growing up she spent her weekends volunteering at animal shelters and rescues and in her time off she could be found watching her idol, Steve Irwin, the well known Australian zookeeper, conservationist and television personality. She grew up with not only dogs but with cats, chameleons, snakes, birds and everything in between. Animals are her life but dogs in particular became her true calling.
In 2012, Ciarra found Off Leash K9 Training in Virginia. She came for training to learn how to communicate in the best and most effective way possible to our canine companions and she ended up staying to work with the headquarters team under Nick White, the creator of Off Leash K9 Training. 3 years later she opened a successful location in Hawaii and is now excited to be bringing her experience and expertise to the emerald coast, where she now resides.
Training dogs is her passion. This is not a job for her, but it is a lifestyle. She gets to wake up everyday and find joy in being able to work with a wide range of amazing dogs and teach owners how to communicate and live a happier life with their dog right by their side. With over 7+ years of training experience, Ciarra has handled everything from young sweet puppies, to working dogs, to aggression cases and everything in between.
