Off Leash K9 Training of Salt Lake City & Northern Utah
Off Leash K9 Training Utah is an off leash dog training business based in and around Salt Lake City and the Northern Utah area, however, we have locations throughout the United States.
We specialize in private lessons, dog behavior consultations, and educating dog owners to understand why their dogs do the things they do. This helps create a strong bond between the owner and dog – and without the restriction of a leash.
Working mainly with household pets, we are able to offer you and your pet an exceptional level of obedience, which allows you to bring them anywhere and everywhere with you, hassle-free. What we enjoy most is seeing dogs that have spent their whole life on a leash, now being off-leash and obedient! We thrive from seeing the joy in both the dogs’ and the owners’ face when they have mastered a new command without the restriction of a leash.
We specialize in private lessons, “board and trains”, 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 without the restriction of a leash.
Off Leash K9 Training (OLK9) is an off leash dog training business originally founded by Nick White, and is based in Northern Virginia; however, we have 137+ locations throughout the United States.
The system and techniques offered will work for any dog, regardless of age, size, or breed. Check out the over 1900+ before and after videos on our YouTube channel to see the amazing results we achieve with dogs every day!
OLK9 uses marker training, but we specialize in e-collar training to gain amazing obedience from your dog. There are a bunch of major misconceptions with e-collar training (see FAQ). E-collar training is more about using a ball as a reward than it is about using the e-collar.

Evan Carson is the President and Owner of the Lehigh Valley, Scranton, and Bucks County Off Leash K9 Training locations. He also owns the Salt Lake City and Northern Utah locations, and is a trainer with Off Leash K9. Evan started as a client in 2010 with his Dogo Argentino, Capone. He has always had a profound love of dogs, and has never lived without them. He loved training and working with his own dogs, and had no problem doing so until Capone.
Capone had some pretty serious reactivity issues with other dogs, which led Evan to find Off Leash K9 Training and Nick White in 2011. Three weeks into private lessons Capone was off leash, healing him in complete control around and past other dogs. From there he completed the basic program and then started advanced training with Capone and then started with his Springer Spaniel, Penny Lane. He was hooked! The rest is history, as they say.
OLK9 literally “changed his life”. From that point on, Evan knew he wanted to work with dogs as a career. Over the next six years Evan worked tirelessly to achieve that goal and in May of 2017 his dream became a reality when he opened the Lehigh Valley OLK9 location in Allentown Pennsylvania. The Lehigh Valley location quickly expanded from one trainer to three by the end of their first year and in September he opened the Scranton location in PA. Since then Evan has grown the Lehigh Valley location as one of the most well-known, highest rated and most reviewed dog training companies in the state. Earlier last year, Evan opened up a new facility for his Scranton location in Peckville/Blakley Borough. His PA locations now employs six full time trainers, is still growing, and is currently hiring.
Evan took over the Salt Lake City and Northern Utah OLK9 locations in August of 2018. Later that year he opened the first OLK9 facility in Northern Utah in North Salt Lake and has plans to grow those locations as he has done in PA. Utah OLK9 currently employs two full time trainers.
During his downtime, Evan enjoys spending time with his family, including his wife and two daughters, and his two dogs, a 2-year-old German Shepherd, Arya, and Lucy, a Bulldog/Rat Terrier/ Staffordshire Terrier mix. He also enjoys being outdoors, hiking, personal defense training, dog training seminars, and working with Arya and Lucy to fine tune their obedience.
