At Marcum K9, we believe that early training is crucial for raising a well-behaved and happy puppy. Our professional puppy training program in Columbus, Ohio is designed to help you and your furry friend establish a strong foundation for a lifetime of obedience and love.

Why Choose Professional Puppy Training?

Your puppy’s behavior is shaped during their first 8 to 14 weeks of life, making this the perfect time to start training. Our team of experienced trainers has helped countless local dog owners teach their puppies important commands and behaviors that will last a lifetime. Not only do we provide training from the beginning, but we also offer ongoing support to help with any behavioral changes down the road.

Our Approach to Puppy Training

At Marcum K9, we use a treat-based training approach that rewards your puppy for paying attention and performing simple tasks upon command. This not only teaches them to respond to your voice and recognize commands but also helps to engage in appropriate behavior. By starting your puppy off with the right skills, you can shape them into the dog your family will grow with and love for years to come.

Puppy Preschool at Marcum K9

Testimonial Nate Will

“We sent both of our Danes to Marcum K9. Two Danes, and two completely different dogs. One was six and our sweet little old lady. The other was 9 months old and a wild child. Garrett did an amazing job with both of them and the changes have been remarkable. Garrett has followed up with us multiple times after their training and has responded quickly with any questions/concerns that my wife and I have had over the months since the training. I would highly recommend Marcum K9 and Garrett. The best money we have ever spent.”
