Mary Beth and I have been blessed since we started Columbia Dog Training in 2011. We have had the privilege to work with so many great clients and their dogs and people in the rescue community. We have also received tremendous support from fellow local dog trainers and nationally known trainers that I met by attending workshops and shadow programs. Our business has grown far more than we ever expected...
Hello everyone.
Our luck ran out weather wise today so we are cancelling Training With the Pack. Hopefully we'll have nicer weather next Saturday and you can join us at 10:00 am at Mill Stream Park in Valley City. Check out the events page on our website or on our Facebook page for details and pack walk rules.
We hope you all have a great day.


Our luck ran out with the weather. It looks like rain is headed our way so we cancelled Training With the Pack for today. We hope to see you next Saturday at Mill Stream Park in Valley City at 10:00 am.
Even though the weather might make you think otherwise it's offically Spring as we move our Training With the Pack class outdoors again starting Saturday April 7th. We're excited to be moving back outside since space is no longer an issue and we don't have to limit the number of dogs that can attend. We hope you will join us. The details regarding this weekly class are shown below.

Happy New Year!
The heart of winter is upon us and it's often too cold out to give your dog much needed exercise and work. But that's not a problem since our weekly pack walks continue at our winter location. This is a great opportunity to work your dogs in a new environment around other people and dogs. Weather permitting we will work outside in the parking lot and adjacent park. If it is raining...

With the warmer weather our friends at Landmark Lawn & Garden Supply are getting much busier. So we decided it was time for us to move the pack walks back outdoors a couple of weeks earlier than originally planned. We want to thank Landmark for being such gracious hosts during the winter months. We would not have been able to hold the pack walks had they not allowed us to use their warehouse.
So...

We do some drills to help teach your dog to handle everyday distractions of people and other dogs, we give training tips every week and we set up obstacles to help your dog build their confidence. See the details...
Spring is officially here but as we all know that doesn't mean we aren't still in for some questionable weather. So we've extended our agreement with Landmark Lawn & Garden Supply in Strongsville to continue holding our pack walk there through the month of April. If the weather is nice we will work outside in their parking lots and surrounding areas. If not we will move into their warehouse. Which...
