Off Leash K9 Training, LLC is proud to be the top dog trainers in Riverside, California!
Tom McGovern is a former US Marine, former Iraq Veteran, and now head trainer of Off Leash K9 Training, LLC in Riverside, California. Tom's passion for working with dogs started when he was a child where Tom grew up in a military family who traveled the world.
Tom found himself following in his father's footsteps and just hours after graduating from high school Tom was at Parris Island, SC to start Marine Corps bootcamp. While in the Marine Corps, Tom's natural passion for working with dogs continues to grow. He found himself wanting to help people achieve military/police precision obedience with their household pets, so owners and their dogs could enjoy the confidence and the off leash freedom that they both deserve to have
During his 12 years in the Marine Corps, Tom served 2 overseas deployments with the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit and 2 combat deployments to Iraq. While in the Marine Corps, Tom constantly had requests from family, friends, and co-workers to take in their personal dogs and train them. Tom slowly found the number of requests extending to friends of friends, friends of family, and complete strangers. At this point, Tom knew that had to make a decision as to whether he wanted to pursue his passion of working with dogs full-time, or continue his service in the US Marine Corps.
During his last year in the Marine Corps, Tom knew he had to follow his passion in life so he spent countless hours searching out the best dog training businesses in the country in order to take his specialized skills and pair it up with a business that he believed in. After months of research, Tom flew out and spent countless hours training directly under Nick White, owner of Off Leash K9 Training, LLC in order to master the most up-to-date training and behavioral techniques.
