Behavior Modification Programs

Since our founding in 1975, we have been dedicated to helping families to improve their relationship with their dogs. It has been our goal to offer quality education programs for all puppies and dogs, regardless of breed. Our Behavior Modification Programs focus on the root causes of your dogs behaviors. In the program we get to know your dog personally and help you to better understand your dog. The end results of these programs are the modification of problematic behaviors, and a greater understanding of your dog.

Free Initial Evaluation

Before beginning any behavior modification or counseling at National K-9, your dog will be evaluated by one of our certified professional trainers. This pre-enrollment evaluation of your dog will enable us to determine his/her personality type, aptitude, social development, and behavioral patterns and problems. This evaluation will also allow our trainer to determine what your goals are for your dog. From this information our certified trainer will be able to recommend the best training approach and whether you and your dog would best benefit from private lessons or a residency training program. With either approach, your dog’s training curriculum will be designed around your individual dog and your goals.

During your evaluation our trainers will also answer any questions that you have about training and your dog’s behavior. Our trainer will also provide you with a demonstration with a trained dog to give you a better idea of what National K-9 can offer you and your dog. This initial pre-enrollment evaluation is free of charge and there is no obligation to sign up for training. Owners must present a current vaccination records from a licensed veterinarian prior to being evaluated.  Simply call our office at (614) 864-8808 and schedule an evaluation time to take place sometime Monday through Saturday.
