Meet Your New Favorite Dog Trainer

Passionate. Patient. Persistent. Pet-lover. These are just a few of the characteristics that describe me. I know each animal is different, and I’ll work with yours to give them the specific guidance they need. Whether you’re thinking about getting an animal, have a new pet, or already own a pet with behavioral problems, I am here to help.


My name is Alex Eaton and I started Out of This World Dog Training to offer the people and pets of Central Ohio an exciting and effective method of training. I am a certified professional dog trainer. I received my certification through Animal Behavior College and graduated with honors. I have also helped train service dogs for Canine Companions for Independence. I have spent time volunteering at Franklin County Dog Shelter as well as being a consultant for other dog trainers in the area. When necessary I consult with local veterinarians to make sure that my methods, nutritional information and medical advice are 100% up to date and correct. I take your pet’s health and well-being as seriously as humanly possible!

I believe that owning a pet is an amazing and rewarding experience, but also a responsibility, not a luxury. Training your pet properly will lead you to a greater understanding of the animal, and I firmly believe in the owner-pet relationship being one of mutual understanding and respect. I immerse you fully in the training process and use dog psychology to more effectively teach your dog. I find that owners end up learning as much, if not more, than their pets. Contact me to find out more about my unique approach to training.


My Services

Helping You Help Your Pet

It’s never too late to teach an old dog new tricks, and I believe it’s never too late to train any pet. My services are designed with you and your pet in mind, and I believe in working as much with you as with your animal. I’m proud of my high success rate and the level of satisfaction with my clients as well as their pets.

Behavior Consulting

I'm Here to Help

If your animal needs help with a specific behavioral issue, Behavior Consulting may be a great option for you. The earlier undesirable behaviors are addressed, the more quickly they can be changed. Sessions can be done in the comfort of your own home, at your convenience, with personalized plans to fit your pet’s needs and your lifestyle. No problem is too big or too small.

Dog Walking Training

Time for You and Your Pet

The reality for many dog owners is that they find themselves dragged behind their dog instead of sharing a relaxing walk together. If this situation sounds familiar, dog walking training may be just what you need. Proper instruction on how to walk your dog will make the daily routine of walking your dog much more relaxing and will serve to strengthen the bond you share.

Obedience Training

Teaching Your Dog to be Polite

Your pet has plenty of potential to learn and understand commands, regardless of age, and my techniques will lay a foundation for you to build upon. My instruction on basic obedience skills as well as general house manners will help your canine companion be his or her best self.

Puppy Training

Build Good Habits Early

A new addition to the family can be a lot of fun but also a lot of work! Starting your puppy early with basic obedience, house manners, house breaking and crate training can make a world of difference as your dog matures. Puppies as young as eight weeks old can learn a great deal through training. Get your puppy started on the right track today!


Satisfied Owners. Happier Pets.

I would recommend Alex to anyone and everyone. From the moment I reached out through Yelp, Alex was quick to respond and informative of his services. He helped us train two mixed breed dogs. From basic obedience to advanced training Alex was well versed on his custom training plans he created for each of our dogs based on their differing progress. One of my dogs that I rescued would resource guard. Alex was able to make huge strides in his development within the first hour of training. He left us with a training plan at the end of the session that we could work on which was a great help as we worked on our own. He would continually check up as needed to check on our progress and would offer and tips he had for us. He is a large part of why our dogs are extremely obedient and well trained. If you are looking for a personalized experience with a trainer who is extremely well versed, I cannot say enough how happy you will be with Alex at Out of This World Dog Training.

Alex was AWESOME!! Our dog Sadie is very intense, always charging the door when someone comes, walks us on the leash and tells us where the treats are and when to give them.  She is a terrier of some sort but my sister always called her a "terrorist"!  Just after our first lesson, Alex was able to teach her not to charge the door, proper way to greet people and most importantly how to walk on a leash without pulling my arm out of socket.  Definitely recommend "Out of This World Dog Training"!  I'm looking forward to practicing those exercises and our next lesson!


We have 3 standard poodles 2 years old and younger. Lots of dog energy and intensity! We had tried other trainers with minimal success. We needed a trainer that would work closely with us, help us stay consistent and committed until we reached our goals. Alex was that person. He immediately connected with each dog. Recognizing their singular personalities, strengths, and challenges. He was warm, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and creative. Alex taught us so much about basic obedience, offering innovative ideas and different approaches. He worked with us on politely greeting visitors at the door, walking calmly on the leash, and so much more. Most importantly, he came regularly as we needed him to. First twice a week. Then once a week. And finally once a month. He helped us completely transform our dog family and increase the happiness they already bring to us. I can't say enough about his skills and insight. The real Dog Whisperer.

My dog, Remi, was fearful and became aggressive with some dogs. I contacted Alex and he responded promptly. Within just one hour during our first session, I noticed such a difference. Remi was already behaving better on a leash and with other dogs in the neighborhood. Alex was able to answer every question I had and was very knowledgeable about every situation we encountered with Remi. I feel more confident as a dog owner because of the training, and I know Remi does as well. If you are looking for an honest, kind, and passionate dog trainer, I would highly recommend Alex.


Alex is an extremely knowledgeable dog trainer who can work on a variety of dog issues. It’s clear from his detailed answers and proven methods that he has an in-depth understanding of dog behavior. Alex is working on much more than basic obedience with our dog. We have a rescue that has nervous tendencies from his past so he reacts to people coming in the house by nipping and barking. He also has severe separation anxiety. Alex has so much patience working with him and so far after just 2 sessions we’re already starting to see improvements. Highly recommend for anyone who is looking for a reliable, knowledgeable and effective trainer!

Alex was very knowledgeable and understanding of my nervousness for training my eight year old dachshund Chihuahua mix. He didn't just train Troy, my dog, he also helped me be a better person for my dog. Troy is living a better life and is less stressed for when someone comes in the house or leaves. Thank you Alex for helping Troy!
