Owner/Head Trainer

Terry Cook

Terry Cook started dog training as a hobby while breeding and raising Schutzhund titled German Shepherd Dogs. Prior to pursuing professional dog training he owned a landscaping company.

In 2009, Terry Cook opened a dog training franchise in Columbus, Ohio under a nationally known company, SMS Dog Training. His franchise was in the Top 3 franchises in 2011 and 2012. He also successfully grew his dog training franchise Facebook page to over 3,900 likes. In 2016, Terry sold his SMS franchise and opened his own independent dog training company in Columbus Ohio. Terry Cook has professional training in Schutzhund, Personal Protection, Narcotics and Explosives, along with being a certified dog trainer as well. Feel free to google ‘Terry Cook Dog Training’ to find out more about his dog training work experience.

As the owner and head trainer of his own dog training company, Dog Trainer Columbus Ohio, Terry’s favorite part about dog training is to have the ability to educate people on how to train their dogs while increasing the canine’s quality of life. Seeing every client’s hard work pay off with their dog during their private in-home dog training lessons makes it all worth it to Terry.

What type of training methods do you use?

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.
