Meet The Off Leash K9 Team

Misty Hamilton - Owner

Misty Hamilton had a passion for working with dogs at a young age. She started her dog career as a Vet Tech. After 6 years, she became a groomer. For over 20 years, she owned her own grooming salon!

Wanting to specialize more in the dog field, she then became a dog show handler, breeder, and dog nutritionist. Misty bred and showed Yorkshire Terriers for 15 years before falling in love with her current breed, the Dogo Argentino. This breed really jump-started her training career. She really enjoyed and developed a passion for training and working with large, powerful breeds. And that’s when she finally knew this was the career for her.

Misty has owned and bred Dogos for 10 years now. She currently lives with her 6 Dogos in her home with her husband.

Miriam Barlow - Trainer

Miriam became passionate about working with dogs when she was challenged with her own dog that started having aggressive behaviors. OLK9 helped her train and shape her dog into a wonderful animal! She started to learn how to train under the old owner of OLK9 area Bryan Bussard’s expertise for 1 year to accomplish trainer level.

She has trained obedience and advance level, including service and therapy animals.
Miriam loves being able to work with these intelligent animals and loves watching each one progress.

Miriam also loves hiking, paddle boarding, dancing, creating music and traveling.
