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! 

Michael Heinevetter – head Trainer

Michael’s dog training career started as a self-taught dog trainer helping family dogs since he was young. After a health scare reshaped the behaviors of his 6 month old puppy, Michael focused all of his energy on learning more about dog training and temperament.

Michael joined Off Leash K9 Training to pursue his passion and a create a new way of life. He loves helping dogs that have been doubted or misunderstood! He genuinely believes that there are no bad dogs. Michael’s goal is to help the dogs and owners have a happy and healthy life while finding peace of mind through obedience.

Taylor Eftimov – Trainer

Taylor has worked and grown up with dogs her whole life. She handled her own dogs and others’ dogs in AKC conformation, agility, rally, and obedience as a junior handler when she was growing up. She has championed and titled many different breeds of dogs in many different sports.

She also has experience working in a dog daycare & boarding facility where she was an assistant dog trainer. Training dogs has been a way of life for Taylor and wasn’t something she considered a career until she found Off Leash K9 Training. Her favorite part of training is building a special bond with your pup of mutual respect and trust and showing you how to build that unbreakable bond as well!

She currently has an Icelandic Sheepdog named Dokken—while he is a retired show dog, they still like to compete in rally and obedience when they can. On the weekends, their favorite place to be is outside, whether that means relaxing in the backyard, walking at the park, or hiking on the mountains.
