Meet The Off Leash K9 Team

Lindsey Hill - Owner

Lindsey Hill is the proud owner of Off Leash K9 Training in North Alabama. Lindsey began working with OLK9 in May 2019 in an administrative role. She obtained her dog training certification with in March 2020 and has been training dogs for 9 years now.

Lindsey enjoys training dogs of all breeds. She’s especially talented at teaching fur babies how the world may be big but that building a true confident and balanced bond with humans can be so much fun! Her vast experience enables her to train any dog in a fun way…making them a happy and obedient member of the family.

Lindsey’s other gift is teaching dog owners how to become more knowledgeable about their dog so they can create and maintain an amazing bond that will last forever.

She has worked with severe anxiety, reactive, and aggressive dogs with great success. Her approach to training means working with families and dogs alike…making sure the dog is well-balanced and a valuable member of the family.

Lindsey is from a small town near Tuscaloosa, AL, and has been here in North Alabama for 11 years.

In her free time, Lindsey enjoys spending time with her husband, three children, 3 dogs (Labrador, Doberman, and German Shepherd), and cats. And like the rest of us, she enjoys the Alabama sun and spending time outdoors.

Nick sutton - trainer

My name is Nick Sutton, and I have dedicated the last 7 years to the art and science of dog training. While I appreciate working with all breeds, I have a particular fondness for high drive dogs. Among the common issues I address, working with fearful dogs is my favorite. Witnessing a fearful dog transform, from being uncomfortable in their own skin to showing significant improvements in their mental well-being, is incredibly rewarding. Knowing that I have played a pivotal role in their success is what drives my passion for dog training.

My journey into the world of professional dog training began in 2018 when I got my first dog, a German Shepherd named Adonis. Adonis’s dominant behavior prompted me to seek professional help, leading me to enroll with Off Leash K9. After just a few lessons, Adonis showed remarkable improvement. His progress was so impressive that I was offered a position as a Trainer, and from that moment on, I was hooked. Since then, I have continued to expand my professional skills and knowledge. One of my proudest accomplishments was graduating from Bart and Michael Bellon’s NePoPo® Gold School in June 2021.

Outside of dog training, I enjoy spending quality time with my beautiful wife, Kayla, who is also a talented dog trainer. Together, we share a love for riding horses and training our own dogs for competitive obedience and protection sports. Additionally, I train some of my dogs to be sold to individuals or organizations where they can use their skills to protect and serve, ensuring that these dogs get to be “good by biting bad people.
