    Chelsae S.

    They were very friendly and very good about explaining their program. He showed me the products he uses and within minutes my dog was listening. He even let me test the products he uses to train the dogs. My only complaint is the prices. They are very high!

  4. #4 Durfey's Dogs

    (20 reviews)

    Lara T.

    Durfey's Dogs took care of my Ellie for 2 weeks, training her the basics and advanced skills. They are clearly passionate about dogs and each individual dog's needs (Ellie has a weak leg). Ellie came back a quieter, happy puppy who can enjoy the outdoors in a safer way, thanks to Durfey's Dogs!

  7. #7 Offleash K9 Training, LLC

    (4 reviews)

    Melinda W.

    Roger taught my new 18 month old puppy each obedience command within minutes of each session. Each week, I just sat there and shook my head at how quickly he would learn and continue to obey with my reinforcement through the week. A couple of times I had a question, and Roger responded quickly with an answer to my concern. I highly recommend Roger and Offleash K9 Training.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Ohio State K-9 College

What do you love about your job?

I truly love professionally training dogs. However, nothing pleases me more than sharing my superior knowledge and skills with the dog's owner once I have the dog trained perfectly. Unlike other dog training schools, Ohio State K-9 College students receive undivided attention from a Master Trainer with 38 years of experience at every lesson.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I started my own business out of my love for dogs after researching all other schools in Columbus, Ohio and finding out that they didn't provide the quality of training that I desired for my best friend.

Describe your most memorable project.

One of my most memorable projects is doing my first television commercial with my dogs.
