Meet The Off Leash K9 Team
Joyell Leonard - Trainer
Joyell lives in the Little River area and has a Bachelor’s in Psychology and a Master’s in Education from UNC Greensboro. She taught public school for several years transitioning into a homeschooling mom of six children for the past 16 years.
Joyell loved dogs while growing up and began dog training when they adopted their first rescue, Gracie, in 2010 and then Lauren several years later. It was not until 2019 when the family bought a Mini Aussiedoodle named, Daisy, she found herself delving into everything dog from videos, books, talking to other trainers, online classes, and her own dogs. Since then, Joyell added 2 more dogs: another Mini-Aussiedoodle named Cappy and a Mini-Bernedoodle named Carter. Joyell responsibly breeds Mini-Aussiedoodles for pet families where all the puppies are loved and raised with her family. Joyell continues to educate herself daily and loves combining her years of teaching experiences with people to help you understand your dog. When Joyell is not training dogs, you can find her spending time with her wonderful husband, six kids, son-in-law, and grandchild. We are very happy to have Joyell as part of our Grand Strand Team in Myrtle Beach!
