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.
