Dogs Learn By Repetition
Your dog will be trained at our in-house training facility in central Ohio while facing every day distractions.
We all see dogs in movies that are incredibly smart and do things that the typical pet wouldn’t even dream of doing. There are those gorgeous, well-behaved show dogs that strut their stuff for the judges. And, let’s not forget the brave police and military dogs that help keep us safe… All these dogs have one thing in common; they’re all professionally trained to perform their abilities.
You may wonder how dog trainers achieve success in teaching dogs to behave, react, perform, and comprehend commands. It’s all about being consistent and repetitive. We’ve all heard the phrase, “Practice Makes Perfect!”, and it applies to dogs just as much as it does to humans.
How many times should you have to repeat the same command to your dog? Well, it’s been proven that it takes between 30 to 60 repetitions for a dog to grasp the concept of behavior for reward. However, this is just the first phase of dog training. You’ll gradually want to amp up distractions, increased timing, added difficulties, and so on to ensure your dogs ability to focus on the task at hand.
At one of our dog board and training programs, the trainers at Marcum K9 Obedience will work with your dog in a repetitive training program at our in-house training facility in Canal Winchester, Ohio. Your dog will face distractions and other obstacles that will help them learn to focus on what they’re supposed to be doing at all times.

Dog Gone Good Reviews
We love hearing about how our dog training programs have changed our clients' lives.
The team at Marcum K9 Obedience love receiving messages and reviews from our customers. Reviews on Google and Facebook not only makes us feel good about what we're doing for you and your family, but it also gives other dog owners peace of mind that should they bring their dog to us for training, that their furry family member will be in good hands and get the proper training they need.
I cannot thank the ladies at Marcum K9 enough. Because of their work with our sweet boy Gil, we were able to keep our little family intact! Gil was an anxious wreck when we brought our infant son home for the first time. He would jump, whine, bark and stop listening to all commands because of his nervous state. We couldn’t have our son and our dog in the same room for fear of Gil accidentally hurting the baby while he was showing so much excited energy. After a 5 day board and train, Gil came back to us a changed dog! He is more confident and listens SO well, no matter what the distraction is. He is calm and allows us to be in control (something we have struggled with since he was a baby!). I cannot thank Marcum K9 enough for the work they did with our precious boy and with us. Our family is complete!
