Chicago Dog TrainerOur Location

Conveniently located near I-90, our northwest suburban training facility is located less than an hour from most of Chicago. We train dogs in a safe nurturing home environment which allows us to uniquely work with your dog according to his and your needs.

The facility is completely fenced and if you're part of our Boarding and Training programs your dog will not be living in a kennel while training with us. We don't train in a kennel, we train at home - just like the environment your dog lives in; in the home, in the yard, and in the neighborhood.

We don't just train, we play with him too all the while exposing him to every situation he would encounter at home with you. Your dog learns what he's supposed to do, gently and quickly - all with no force.

Our results last a lifetime - we guarantee it.

Chicago Dog TrainerWe love your dog - and he'll love us too!

For more information, or a free tour of our facility, call us and let's talk about YOUR dog becoming a Dream Dog!

Our Philosophy & Goals

Our philosophy is simple. Improve the life of both dog and family. All too often, unruly dogs do not fully enjoy life because their families constantly become upset and frustrated with them. This is difficult for both family and dog.
Our mission is simple. Make both dog and family happy.
What does is take to make your dog happy? He will thrive when you give him leadership and attention.

Making the family happy is a bit more complex.

Families typically want their dog to:

  • Come when called, every time, on or off leash
  • Walk nicely on a loose leash without pulling
  • Sit until released
  • Down until released

Families also want their dogs:

  • Not to jump on people
  • Not to charge through doors
  • Not to dig in the garden
  • Not to bark and chew  inappropriately
  • Not to climb on furniture you prefer they avoid
  • Not to sniff and eat off the table and counters.
  • Not to be wild and uncontrollable
  • Not to ignore you when you want their attention
