Kayley Kurfman

Kayley was born and raised in Nebraska, but moved to Ohio in the Fall of 2016 and started working with Off Leash K9 Training! She has been working with dogs since she was 16, starting with doggie daycare and vet clinics, and has now accumulated a wealth of training knowledge which really shows in the dogs she trains. Kayley has worked with many rescues and has two rescue Great Danes of her own. In her free time, she loves to go kayaking and hiking with her dogs.
