Cassie Wagner is the head trainer of the Off Leash K9 Training, Lehigh Valley & Scranton locations and the facility manager for the Lehigh Valley location in Allentown. She offers professional training that will strengthen the bond between you and your dog. Cassie feels that the most important aspects of dog training are trust, love, communication, and mental and physical exercise. After being a client of Off Leash K9 Training herself and seeing the life-changing results between her and her own dog she wants to help others achieve those same results as well. Her greatest joy is seeing the transformation between owner and dog from the first lesson to the last.
Cassie studied Wildlife Management & Conservation at Delaware Valley University and has a background working with a variety of animals including White-Tailed Deer, songbirds, owls, and hawks. She has worked at an array of places giving her a strong background in domesticated animals; including a vet’s office, a dog daycare & boarding facility, and a whole foods pet store. Although she is beyond passionate about wildlife, dogs have always held a special place in her heart and she found herself yearning for a lifelong career involving dogs. She is thrilled to be a part of the Off Leash K9 family and believes that this type of work is her true calling.
Cassie’s favorite pastime is hiking with her dogs. She currently has a German Shepherd named Nala and a Native American Indian Dog named Talcon. One of her life goals is to visit and hike at every state park in Pennsylvania. The great outdoors is her favorite place to be and also where she believes her and her dogs are happiest. She also enjoys skateboarding, snowboarding, and listening to music.
Cassie wants to help you and your dog to succeed to the best of your ability and create a mutual relationship built on trust and respect. When dog and owner come together and understand one another it is a very beautiful thing.
