a Passion and gift

Dillon (founder/head trainer) discovered his passion and gift for caring for animals when he got his first dog, Star, at the age of seven with his father, Star was a German Shepherd. Years later while Dillon was living in Los Angeles working in music, he found himself missing something: the selfless companionship of dogs.

That’s when Gunner, an energetic German Shepherd, entered his life. He worked with Gunner and multiple dog trainers in the Los Angeles area for over 3 years to build a strong foundation of obedience and protection.

Dillon found that training dogs was his calling in life, and that he had a natural talent for it. He started training different friends' dogs as a hobby. People would see him with Gunner and ask him who trained the dog, and that's how Full Potential K9 was born.

In January 2019, Dillon completed his professional training at one ofthe nation’s top dog trainers’ schools.

Dillon has successfully trained more than a thousand
dogs as of today through his own dog training business, including two Labrador retrievers for the U.S Department of Defense to perform detection work, multiple A list celebrities, professional athletes (MLB, NFL, and NHL), and 5 different local veterinarians’ personal dogs. He continues to further his education by attending seminars for dog trainers around the globe, and recurring private coaching sessions with world level competitors. In summer 2022, he successfully completed a NePoPo® training course.

Dillon is currently raising a Belgian Malinois puppy (Trower) for competition, along with 3 Labrador retrievers for detection work. He is part of a local IGP (Internationale Gebrauchshund Pruefung) club and plans to compete in IGP, formerly known as Schutzhound/IPO, along with AKC Field Trial Tests.

"There is nothing more rewarding than taking a dog to it’s full potential. I’ve seen first hand how improving a dog and their owners relationship with the proper communication and training can literally save lives."

Reviews From Our Wonderful Customers

Our Dog Kobe is a Belgian Malinois/Shepherd Mix and 3 years old. Two years ago Kobe had a similar training program in California prior to our move to Florida. We thought it was time for some 'touch up' training. After interviewing with Dillon We believed he was the right trainer for Kobe and enrolled in the 5 week program. Dillon is very professional and so focused on the dog's RE-actions, something I didn't see before. Difficult to write about all the details, the proof is in Kobe's new behavior, his response to his surroundings and my commands which are effortless. Since his training with Dillon, Kobe has traveled on airplanes, in a car across the USA , stayed in strange hotels and even been on a ferry to Canada! We are so proud that everywhere we take Kobe other people are so impressed how calm and well behaved he is. He officially has passport!! After picking up Kobe from Dillon he was so alert and active....K9 Kravings Dog Food is his favorite, hard to find on the road but he is so vibrant when he eats it.
