Meet The Off Leash K9 Team

Rick ROberts - HEAD Trainer

Rick Roberts is a graduate of West Virginia State University, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. He was a retail manager for many years before he decided to follow his real passion for dogs. Rick grew up with German Shepherds, and has always been interested in dog obedience and behavior. This interest was sparked by the fact that his great grandfather was a breeder, and his father worked with K9’s in the Air Force. Rick is an avid outdoorsman, and all his pups love hitting the woods or water with him frequently.

Dave Dobbins - Trainer

Dave Dobbins is excited to be a part of the Offleash K9 family. A native of Alabama, Dave has called North Carolina home for most of his life. He spent 30 years teaching in North Carolina’s public schools, most of that at Southeast Guilford Middle School. During that stretch, Dave served in several state-level leadership positions, and spent time as a mentor, co-op teacher for interns, restaurant chef, and a frequent clinician, presenter, and adjudicator at regional and state music education conferences and festivals.

Dave loves dogs, loves training dogs, and loves helping dog owners have a stronger bond of love, understanding, health, and trust with their K9s. He still frequently finds new parallels between training K9s and teaching school children. Dave and his wife Amy live in Pleasant Garden and have two college-aged daughters. The Dobbinses have a German Shepherd named Saban, a Black Lab named Millie, and they often host their daughter’s Pit Bull rescue, Clementine whom they like to call their “grand-pupper.” In addition to dogs, Dave loves hiking, cooking, biking, fishing, traveling, and all things Alabama football. Roll Tide!
