dog training class at Homedog Resort & Daycare in downtown Columbus, Ohio

Our Goal is to Help You Build the Bond You Want with Your Dog by Creating a Unique and Custom Program Specific to YOU AND YOUR DOG’S NEEDS!

Our Approach to Dog Training

Our program is designed using the values, policies and ethics set by the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers. We base our tactics and techniques using the LIMA strategy with programs designed by the owner and certified professional dog trainer, Greg Barnard CPDT-KA. The LIMA strategy is an acronym for the phrase “Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive” meaning that our trainers use the least intrusive, minimally aversive strategy to succeed in achieving a training objective. We do not justify the use of punishment in place of other effective techniques and strategies. We believe we can achieve the desired behavior change by focusing on the animal’s environment, physical/mental health and operant/classical conditioning.

Consider our Homedog University program daycare 2.0. We create a daycare schedule based on your dog’s needs using proven training methods to ensure your dog’s day is filled with mental enrichment, physical exercise and socialization exercises. While this is a great program for any dog it’s best suited for puppies, high-energy dogs or dogs that are new to your family because the individualized schedule provides our team the opportunity to do more of what your dog likes and help them overcome any challenges or inappropriate behaviors. Our activities include field trips, training sessions, small play groups, large play groups, mental enrichment games, play time and rest periods. This program has limited availability and is only available Monday thru Thursday so please contact us for additional details!


4-Week Obedience Courses $125 (Puppy or Adult)
Training Workshop $20

We offer group classes to address a variety of training objectives and lessons. For our 4-week courses you and your dog will participate in a small, on-leash group lesson (no more than 4 dogs). You will learn a variety of basic obedience commands using positive reinforcement to set a solid foundation for lifelong obedience and training. In our workshops, we will review a variety of topics ranging from becoming a new dog owner to leash reactivity and training tools and techniques. These workshops are in a classroom setting and last 45-60 minutes. Some classes may require dogs and others may not – though every dog gets to participate in daycare the day of the workshop. Contact us to find out when our next 4-week class or workshop is scheduled!
