Columbus Ohio Dog Trainer Terry Cook

Dog training for obedient and off leash K9’s in the Columbus OH area

As we start the dog training journey together let me introduce myself and welcome you to the world of dog training in the Columbus Ohio area.

My name is Terry Cook and I am a certified professional dog trainer that specializes in basic to advanced obedience with off leash control. I started dog training as a hobby while breeding and raising Schutzhund titled German Shepherd Dogs in Lancaster Ohio. In 2009 I opened and was the original owner of one of the biggest dog training franchises in Columbus Ohio. I sold my Columbus Ohio franchise in 2016 in order to open my own independent dog training company for families that want to have a stronger bond with their dog through obedience training. I have worked with all types of canines, from rescued and adopted mixed breed dog to pure-bred dogs and puppies of all age and sizes. I work with K9’s that are not just pets but family members. Are you looking for the best dog trainer in Columbus Ohio? Terry Cook offers the best dog training for a happy and confident offleash K9 through positive reinforcement training.

What type of training methods do you use for obedience and off leash control with my dog?

I am versatile in my positive dog training methods due to understanding that not all dogs are the same. I have seen the amazing transformation in each dog and puppy with over nine years of using positive redirectional dog training, it brings out the best in every canine while boosting their confidence and building trust through basic obedience commands on and off the leash. As a Columbus Ohio Dog Trainer, I will never punish a dog for doing something that is undesired because that ruins trust and does the opposite of forming a strong bond between the owner and their dog while your K9 is learning different obedience commands. I will never condone yelling, punishing or intimidating your K-9 to get your dog to do what you want. My dog training methods include treat training, clicker training, leash and collar training along with e-collar training as well. I help dog owners understand how to communicate with their dog positively and effectively that will not only make your obedience training easy but fun as well! I can help you get your dog off-leash in as little as 3 private dog training lessons.

What will my dog learn through your Columbus Ohio Dog Training program?

certified dog trainer, columbus ohio, terry cook, obedience training, behavior modificationFor every new client in the Columbus Ohio area that chooses me, your Columbus Ohio Dog Trainer, will receive a FREE in-home dog training evaluation, where I come to you to evaluate your dog and give you a personalized price quote based on the positive dog training tools that we will be using and how many lessons it will take to have your dog off leash with solid obedience. Every dog training package has a LIFETIME SUPPORT guarantee as well. That is how much I want to help you and the guarantee I promise you when you choose Columbus Ohio Dog Trainer Terry Cook for all your dog training needs. I help all K9’s from dog training with puppies to older dog breeds, to aggressive dogs and even help the dogs who have flunked previous dog training classes.

Let’s face it, when you come home and your dog has chewed up the living room chair legs, scratched the door frames or your dog even frantically pulls you down the street during walks, that does add stress to your life, right? I am ready to come to you for a free dog training evaluation in the Columbus Ohio area and show you that you can have a dog that can be obedient with off-leash control and has nice public manners towards any guest.

*** Most of my dogs are off leash in 3 dog training lessons and there won’t be any additional charge if I have to come out again to help your dog be reliable offleash after lesson 3.
