As I am writing this I just returned from a walk with my 3.5 year old Chocolate Lab who for past 3.4 years of her life was almost intolerable walking on a leash. She would pull us basically down the road and was so overly social when it came to meeting/seeing other people and dogs, encountering either one was always a challenge. After enduring enough of this, we decided to seek out professional help and found Pat at Regional K9 after some online searching. His methodologies seemed sound and he offers a free consultation, which in my opinion is a huge positive as we could meet with him, hear what his training consisted of and then decide for ourselves if we wanted to continue with the training or not. After meeting with Pat, I had no doubt in my mind this would work and we opted for the 3 day boarding program with 1 (human) lesson upon pickup. After the 3 days, I cannot say enough positive things about the experience as a whole. The dog we got back was well mannered, listened to direction and walked in the heel position on a leash with zero pressure or pulling. On top of that, we got the much needed instruction to continue the training at home. Now roughly one month post boarding, I cannot believe the progress we have all made, and it’s been such a delight to come home and go on walks with a happy and well behaved dog. To top it all off, Pat has gone out of his way to follow up with us after the training, check on the status of things and offer helpful tips and tricks to make sure we are giving her the best instruction possible. I absolutely recommend Pat and Regional K9 to anyone with a dog. We learned so much in the process and it was a pleasure working with him. Thanks for such a great experience! More...

Pat at Regional K9 is not only an amazing trainer but also someone who truly cares for your pet. We saw so much progress in such a short amount of time. After dropping off a nippy/jumpy 16-week old puppy, we came home with a calm, focused, and well-behaved puppy. Throughout the whole processes Pat was professional and provided continued support both during and after the training through pictures, videos, and texts. Thanks to this continued support and guided materials we were given, we have been able to keep up her training and she has grown into a very well behaved 8-month-old! I highly recommend Pat! More...

My partner and I couldn't be happier with Pat and the work he did with our pup. We showed up with our one year old lab mix after really struggling with his behavior (he literally chewed through his leash during the intake process with Pat). After ten days with Pat we were reintroduced to a new dog, he has been responsive and shows a clear understanding of the principles pat discussed. He made it very clear that he's not a magician and that as the owners, my girlfriend and I have a lot of work to do, but he put us back in charge, and now we get to decide what kind of dog we want. Couldn't be more grateful! More...

Pat is a fantastic trainer who really treats your dog like he/she were his own. He really walks you though the program and once he begins training your dogs, he sends you photos and short videos of your dog’s progress via text so you can how your dog is improving which is really awesome and helps you stay connected to your dog and his/her progress. Pat really does take the time to get to know your dog and tailors his training around the dog’s personality, strengthening the dog’s string suits and working on improving their trouble spots (e.g. jumping, accidents in the house, etc). Pat is very courteous, professional, and genuinely cares about both his clients and dogs, which really adds a level of personal attention and detail that only can offer to your dogs.Pat also provides private lessons (already built into his packages) to show you what he has worked on with your dog and to give the owner the chance to work with the dog while getting real time feedback. This is the true icing on the cake because Pat can help you improve your commands with your dog and give you invaluable pointers and suggestions to ensure that when you take your dog home that you are correctly reinforcing what she has learned and building on what Pat has taught the dog. Pat staggers these private lessons to ensure a successful transition in training your dog and making sure he/she continues to make progress.I highly recommend Pat as your dog trainer ultimately for two standout reasons:1. The amount of progress he is able to accomplish in your dog that will give owners a great advantage in teaching their dogs manners and obedience.2. His genuine passion, respect, and professionalism when working with both dogs and clients simply is one-of-a-kind and the true difference maker. More...

Pat did an incredible job with my dog Judge! Judge learned all the basic walking/leash commands as well as general obedience. He came home a new dog! The best part of the residency program though is that Pat & his family tested Judge like he was one of their own. It’s more than worth it to have a well-trained/happy dog! I highly recommend Pat & Regional K9! More...

Q&As

Helping my clients to turn problems into solution.

My dog. She was out of control and I felt helpless. I found a great school for dog trainers in Columbus, OH called National K-9. I hopped in the car with my dog and spent 6 weeks in a comprehensive & intensive program. Graduated. Opened my own business and it has & continues to be an incredible journey.

I do foundational work, but I also teach your dog how to become part of your family again.
