Florida K9 Unleashed is a dog training business based in the Daytona Beach area. Specializing in private lessons, dog behavior consultations, and teaching the owners to understand why their dogs do the things they do. This helps create a strong bond between the owner and dog.
At Florida K9 Unleashed we use marker training and believe that if the root of all training is positive and rewarding for the dog it works. Specializing in e-collar training to gain amazing obedience from your dog. There are a lot of major misconceptions about e-collar training. E-collar training is more like giving your dog its own cell phone and teaching them how to answer your call. The dog learns to answer the call means rewards happen. A well timed reward and proper praise goes so much farther in training then one badly timed correction.

Leash Training Specialist
My passion for dog training was first ignited last spring when my beautiful wife and I picked up our first fur baby, a chocolate lab, on our way home from our honeymoon and we have been glued to each other ever since. My original intent was to simply teach our dog Ruger a couple of “cool” tricks. One thing led to another and it was not until I saw two German Shepard’s running in unison with who I would later find out was Aaron, the owner of his own flourishing business called Florida K9 unleashed. That’s when I decided to stalk…..discreetly inquire about the cool guy with the highly trained German Shepard’s. After my first session with Aaron, I immediately clicked with his training methods and wanted to learn under him and become a part of the Florida k9 unleashed team. I have learned so much under his guidance and truly love working with every dog and owner to help create the bond that I have found irreplaceable with Ruger.

I’m currently a certified K-9 handler in narcotics and explosive ordinance detection by the National Narcotics Detector Dog Association and Department of Defense. I’d love to help you and your dog be the best team that you can be.
