ABOUT OUR TRAINERS

Meet The Off Leash K9 Team

Matt Ferramosca – Owner

Matt Ferramosca (Owner) stumbled his way into Off Leash K9 Training a little over 7 years ago when his Pitbull/Husky mix, Annabel, was in dire need of some off leash training. While a very smart dog and excellent INSIDE, she was a bit of a rascal and loved to play tag, her favorite game, while outside off leash. In addition, Matt could not get a grasp on Annabel’s intense prey drive as Annabel would not hesitate to take off after a squirrel, deer or rabbit. After graduating from OLK9’s Basic and Advanced Obedience Program, Annabel became an ambassador for her breed, and Matt was sold on Off Leash K9 Training’s ability to change peoples’ lives in addition to their canine companions.Matt loves talking with clients and discussing how his obedience programs will be able to meet their unique training needs en route to establishing a happy and healthy hierarchy within the clients’ “pack.”
 
Matt has 7+ years of experience working with advanced canine obedience and behavior modification with Off Leash K9 Training. In this time, he has trained 4,000+ dogs, and he has made progress with each and every one. Matt will work with any behavioral issue, breed, or client! 

Karen Braccia – Head Trainer

Karen, a former client, started her experience with Off Leash K9 Training through basic and advanced training package with her dog, Madigan (“Madi”). While loving and sweet to people, she was particularly reactive around new dogs and couldn’t be walked (trusted) on-leash due to her issues. OLK9’s training programs gave Madi the skill set and exposure she needed, but more importantly, OLK9 took the time to train Karen as well, so she could build on her confidence, just like Madi, one dog at a time. All this lead Karen to want to give to others what she needed for her own dog.  Each dog she trains, each positive outcome, proves that obedience, consistency and good behavior can be obtained if you are given the right tools and work hard enough. Providing these tools and changing the owner-dog dynamic for the better is the force behind Karen’s drive to help her community through our furry friends.

Jimmy Dolinger – Trainer

Jimmy Dolinger began his Off Leash K9 Training experience through his Chocolate Lab, Nash. As clients of OLK9’s lesson program, Jimmy and Nash learned 14 off-leash commands, and the fire was lit! Jimmy has since added a German Shepherd named Frank to the pack, and enjoys incorporating them into his lessons and board and trains! Jimmy graduated from Alvernia University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Athletic Training. Jimmy currently teaches sports medicine at the high school level in addition to training dogs. When Jimmy is not training dogs or teaching, you will most likely find him out on the golf course or hanging out with his wife, Meredith! Jimmy looks forward to giving you the same bond with your pups that he has cultivated with his pups!

Rachel Moseley – Trainer

Rachel Moseley began her time with Off Leash K9 Training as a client 2 years ago. Her Labrador retriever Monte was an incredibly loving and playful 1 year old that carried with him a bit of stubbornness and strong will. Rachel knew his calm demeanor and desire to be around people would make him a perfect therapy dog, but she needed help getting him under control on a leash. After graduating from Basic Obedience, Monte and Rachel went on to complete Therapy Dog training. That experience as a client helped Rachel realize she had a passion for understanding dog behavior and for helping others achieve a similar life of Off Leash obedience for their dog. Today, Rachel and Monte spent a lot of time at the Children’s hospital and in schools providing affection, comfort and love to a variety of people in need. Rachel likes learning about clients and helping each one incorporate obedience into their individual lifestyles. She enjoys seeing owners become the pack leader and create happy, stress-free lives within their homes.

Erica Tillger – Trainer

Erica from Sudlersville, Maryland has always loved dogs. Erica is intrigued by dogs’ ability to learn new concepts and commands. 

Erica has trained her own dogs her entire life, but seeing others struggle with their dogs time and again made her want to help others. Erica has a Border Collie named Lottie and a Cane Corso named Riley that she loves to take hiking and teach new things. 

Through Off Leash K9 Training, Erica has added many tools into her training tool belt. Erica enjoys working with clients to help them achieve happy and stress-free lives with their pups!
