Jerry Beaugez is the head trainer for Off Leash K9 Training, Baton Rouge.

Jerry is from Bay St. Louis, MS which is just 40 minutes east of New Orleans, LA and 20 minutes from Biloxi, MS.  As an animal lover, Jerry has always had dogs as pets from a 4 pound teacup Poodle to a 170 pound English Mastiff.

As a former police officer, Jerry turned his love of animals into a part of his career when he became a K9 narcotics interdiction officer.  Being the handler of a multi-purpose (tracking, narcotics detection, apprehension, officer protection and crowd control) K9, Jerry and his partner were able to help protect and serve the citizens not only the community where he lived and worked, but the citizens throughout the entire county.  Jerry was also a member of the entry team and later the Assistant Commander of the Hancock County Special Operations Division, a multi-jurisdictional SWAT team.
