Dogs Learn By Repetition

Your dog will be trained at our in-house training facility in central Ohio while facing everyday distractions.

We’ve all seen dogs in movies that are incredibly talented and smart. Or gorgeous, well-behaved show dogs that strut and sit on command. And what about the brave police and military dogs that help keep everyone safe? These pups all have one thing in common: they’re all professionally trained.

So how do you teach your dog to behave, perform and comprehend commands? It’s all about consistency and repetition, and the phrase, “Practice Makes Perfect!” applies to dogs as much as it does to human beings.

It takes between 30 to 60 repetitions for a dog to grasp the concept of behavior for reward. Once we establish this baseline, we gradually increase distractions, difficulties, and timing, until your dog learns to maintain focus on any task at hand.

When you sign your dog up for one of our Board and Train programs, Marcum K9 Obedience experts will work around the clock on repetitive conditioning at our in-house training facility in Canal Winchester, Ohio. Your dog will encounter repeated scenarios that teach discipline and obedience, no matter the activity, distraction, or command.

From obedience basics to specialized skills, our expert trainers guide every paw toward success, ensuring each session is as exciting as rewarding.

Arrange a Consultation

During your initial training consultation at our Canal Winchester facility, we will assess your dog's temperament, any training skills it may already know, and the most significant challenges you're currently facing.

Training Programs

We understand that each dog is unique, and so are their needs. As we discuss your needs and goals for dog training, our staff will help you devise a plan of attack to get your four-legged friend trained in no time!

Training Classes

The time has come to start the training process. Whether we teach you and your dog one-on-one or enroll in group puppy classes, our expert trainers are there for you along the way! 

Training Maintenance

The work isn’t done once the dog training classes are complete! If you do not use the techniques learned in the training program, your dog can lose the skill over time. Make it a habit to use the commands daily with your dog so the practice becomes a part of your routine!

I researched quite a few trainers in Columbus before I finally settled on Marcum. Allison has done a fantastic job building this program and it shows from the moment you walk in the door. The in-home boarding, personalized training program, and promise of daily updates are what sold me. Garrett did such an AMAZING job with my Doberman, Dino. He now has impeccable manners and is fully on and off leash reliable, which is quite impressive for being a 9 month old pup.

The training Dino received at Marcum is more than just learning some commands— the mindset shift I’ve seen in him is the most impressive change. He has self control, respect, and my ability to communicate with him has drastically improved. Garrett was great about giving me updates, answering my questions, and teaching me all about the training Dino received at our follow up lessons. Not all trainers are created equal, and my experience with Garrett, Allison and the rest of the Marcum staff have proved just that. We are so thankful to have found them!
