Marty Ferguson

Marty was born and raised in Ohio. He has spent his entire life living with dogs and is very familiar with many different breeds and mixes.

Marty formally started dog training in 2012. His specialty is e-collar and off-leash obedience training and we were excited to welcome Marty to the Off Leash K9 Columbus team in 2019.

When he is not training, Marty enjoys spending time with his family. You will also frequently find him on an adventure with his personal dog, an American Bully, Murphy.

Kyle Ferguson

Kyle grew up with dogs and has always had a passion for training. He joined the Marine Corps in 2012 where he served as a combat engineer for 6 years in a reserve contract. Kyle joined the police academy in 2015 and was later offered a position as a K9 Handler for a local police department. 

Kyle started working with his own K9, Atlas, and immediately immersed himself into the world of dog training.  He sought out any and all dog training materials he could find. Because of his experience with both pet dogs and working dogs, we happily welcomed Kyle to the Off Leash K9 Columbus team in 2020.

Adam Sutherland

Adam was born and raised in northern Ohio. He grew up with many family dogs including Toy Poodles, Labradors, Chihuahuas, a German Shepherd when he was in college, and a Rottweiler-Chow mix when his children were young. Now Adam has several dogs at home, a Pit Terrier named Luna, a Pit-mix named Banshee, and an Australian Cattle Dog/German Shepherd mix named Raven.

Adam got his start in dog training to help family and friends train their pets to be more reliable with basic obedience. He grew to understand how their daily behaviors shape a well-mannered pet and a more enjoyable relationship. Adam is eager to share his knowledge and help both you and your pet get the most from each other!
