Canine Academy, your Columbus Ohio Dog Trainer, services all surrounding areas of Worthington, OH.
Canine Academy is Columbus Ohio’s best dog trainer specializing in positive reinforcement training methodologies. We designed our methods to improve communication between dog and owner, leading to a happier life for both.
Canine Academy has one standard of excellence, delivered three ways. We offer our basic obedience program with three unique ways to partner with us. We can help you select the program that’s right for you, from a full “board and train” to private dog training classes. We’ll consider your desired level of involvement during the first phase of training, your dog’s personality, your training goals and your budget.
Every dog in our training programs must meet or exceed our training standards. Before, during and after training, we work closely with you to ensure we meet your goals.
Dog Training Packages Include:
- Board and Train
- Private Lessons (on campus or in home)
- Reactive Dog Training
- Public Access Training
- Training for Separation Anxiety
At the end of the training, your dog will have learned basic obedience commands including:
- Sit, down, and place (with implied stay)
- Come to heel when called
- Walking on leash
- Walking off-leash with defined radius
- “All Done!” (release command)
- “Off” with redirect (command to stop unwanted behavior)
- Stay in a spot until released
Dog Training Commitment and Support:
Every dog leaving our board and train, hybrid, or private dog training classes program must achieve a “good” or “excellent” result against our training standards. After the first phase of training is over, you can expect a progress report. During the next 90 days, your trainer will guide you through even more improvement.
Further, our dog behaviorists commit to supporting your dog’s long-term obedience training success. Tuition includes scheduled follow-up appointments to make sure that your new dog training skills transition well to your home life. Finally, our trainers are available for support during scheduled office hours, and welcome all graduates back for free group dog training classes. Your skills will never go stale.
Our Dog Training Methods:
Our dog behaviorist trainers spend a lot of time getting to know what makes your dog tick. Positive reinforcement dog training is about providing consistent reward. Without treats in your pocket, motivating your dog by play and praise – issued the way your dog wants it – makes dog obedience training stick for life.
Beyond identifying the most effective reward for positive reinforcement, our dog trainers also use e collars to provide a very low level stimulus during both commands and praise. Our proprietary Positive E Collar methodology enhances the communication between dog and owner. This enhanced communication builds trust and produces effective training outcomes. We believe that you can teach a dog obedience training without causing the dog any physical pain through an e collar.
Along with your leash, your voice and your nonverbal cues, your e collar is just another tool in your toolbox. But your e collar allows you to communicate with your dog at even longer distances. With your new tool and our dog obedience training methods, you’ll access a level of freedom in nature and in public access.
“I HIGHLY recommend Terry Cook and his trainers. We sent our very energetic Australian Shepherd/ Border Collie to them to get basic handling skills and we couldn’t be happier with the way he came back to us. We had Shannon as our trainer and she kept in great contact with us the whole time. She sent us videos and pictures to keep us updated on what she taught Jett and what he was thriving at. We truly appreciate everything we learned here at this facility and its 100% worth the money. We were happy with the pickup process as well because we were trained on how to keep him in check and how to continue the training at home. I had the absolute best experience and will continue to recommend this facility to everyone we know.”
“We took our Golden Retriever puppy for 3 private lessons. Before taking him, he was out of control. We couldn’t walk him because he would pull to hard, he would jump on everyone, etc. Now he will sit, come, knows place and off. I take him on daily long walks and it is so enjoyable! He is still ornery and his personality is the same but he knows how to listen and control himself. Terry and Shannon were great to work with and the lessons were worth every penny!”
