The Best Behavior School For Your Puppy

Our fun, treat-based professional program will help your puppy discover their love of working with you.

Ready or not, puppy training begins as soon as you bring your new puppy home. Our program helps you and your dog establish a firm foundation for raising a well-behaved member of the family.

When training a puppy, it is crucial to start early. Dogs begin to form their own attitudes between the ages of 8 and 14 weeks, and behaviors learned during this period can last a lifetime. Our professional trainers have years of experience helping local dog owners with their puppies. Not only do we train them from the beginning, but we are also here as a lifelong support system to help with any behavioral changes down the road.

Puppy Preschool is Waiting

Our treat-based training approach rewards your puppy for paying attention and performing simple tasks upon command. This will teach them to respond to your voice, recognize commands, and engage the appropriate behavior. Early skills learned at Marcum K9 Obedience will shape your puppy into the dog your family will grow with and love for years to come. Ready to start? Contact us today and we will start with a free consultation done by one of our expert, caring trainers.

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.”
