Meet The Off Leash K9 Team

Matt and JourdaN - Owners

Matt and Jourdan began their time with Off Leash as clients after getting a rambunctious puppy. They completed a basic obedience package, and Matt was hooked on training. He then got a job as a trainer for Off Leash K9 Training Hampton Roads. Jourdan officially joined the team after Matt received the opportunity to become the head trainer for Off Leash K9 Training Bay Area and Fresno. They packed up their pups Duke, Ellie, and Brody, and headed from Virginia to California.

After a year of being head trainer, Matt is now the proud owner of both Off Leash K9 Training Bay Area and Off Leash K9 Training Fresno. Matt and Jourdan are proud of their growing team and grateful for the opportunity to help owners build a new relationship with their dogs. Having been clients first has given Matt and Jourdan a unique perspective of the importance of building a bond with your dog and helping them gain confidence and freedom through training. When they aren’t training dogs, they can be found watching movies, hiking, or grilling in their backyard!

Moe Camarena - Head Trainer

Monique began at Off Leash K9 Training as a kennel technician and quickly became interested in becoming a trainer. After spending time learning as much as she could while training with owners Matt, Jourdan and the team she became a trainer and has enjoyed seeing the transformations and benefits of professional training for the dogs she has trained and the families who have benefited. Because of this she has become our head trainer and is passionate about training and teaching new trainers to love, enjoy and take pride in what we do.

Outside of work Monique, is a busy mother who loves to have her daughter join her for training opportunities with the pups and is passionate about fitness and weightlifting as well.

Marissa Contreras- Trainer

Marissa began working with Off Leash as a part of our Kennel Technician Team. She quickly moved her way over to our training team after countless hours of shadowing and training to hone her skills. Marissa has always had a passion for animals! She always wanted to be a vet and spent time in the pet boarding and daycare industry before beginning her journey with Off Leash. Marissa is a mother to three beautiful children. Her daughter and two sons love to spend time with her by hiking, playing board games and video games, and doing arts and crafts together!

Marissa is sure to carve out free time for herself on top of being a full time trainer and a full time mom! During that free time, she loves to work out at the gym, play soccer, football, and other sports. She puts her entire heart and soul into each dog that she works with and enjoys being able to build lasting friendships with both humans and their animal counterparts! She always has a smile on her face and brightens up any room that she is in!

Tais - Trainer

Hi I’m Tais! I’m so excited to be training at Off Leash K9 Training! My passion for animal science stems from my experience in agriculture during my childhood. I grew up learning everything from fieldwork to livestock management from my father. From several mentors, I found my passion for research and development. I’ve used my passion to search for new ways to make training informative for all clients! My hobbies include photography, reading, video games with my brother, researching anything in the medical field for veterinary medicine. My bachelors degree is in animal science pre professional.

Lily - Trainer

Hi, I’m Lily, and I’m all about helping dogs be the best they can be while still being themselves. Teaching obedience is my jam, but I’m all about giving them the freedom to be dogs, too. I’ve always had a thing for dogs, and now I get to help them learn and grow every day. When I’m not doing that, you’ll find me out in the fields, running around with my own furry friends. Happiness for me is seeing a dog wag its tail with joy because it’s being itself.

Darnae - Trainer

Hi, I’m Darnae, and I am a big time dog and animal lover. I grew up with pet dogs and reptiles. At 10 years old I started teaching our family golden retriever tricks and discovered how much I loved training and teaching dogs. After serving in the Navy I went to school and got my associates of science degree and began working my way up to becoming a veterinary technician. During my 6 years working for a veterinary hospital I rescued and fostered dogs, studying up and practicing dog training and behavior. I have a deep love of high energy, working breeds, especially German shepherds with two of my 3 personal dogs being mixes of that breed.

Rebecca - Trainer

Hi! I’m Rebecca! I’m very passionate about dogs and all animals! I have 2 working Belgian Malinois’s! I have been working with them in personal protection for the past 5 years as one of my favorite hobbies! I also worked as a Vet Tech for a few years prior to being hired here at Off Leash! A few of my favorite hobbies include riding my horse out on the trails and taking care of my reptiles! I personally enjoy behavior modification and aggression cases, I love the transformation and helping owners!

Sabrina - Trainer

Hi, I’m Sabrina, and I found my calling when I became part of the Off-Leash team! Growing up I had lots of different types of pets, but the dogs were always my favorite! As I became an adult, I went through many different types of jobs, but none sparked that fire in me until I joined the Off Leash Team!

When I’m not hard at work training the dogs, you can find me camping in the mountains, tanning at the beach or hanging out with friends and family at home. I also have four of my own dogs at home that come in many different shapes and sizes that are my babies!
