Other Training Options

Private Instruction

Dogs that bark or lunge at other dogs/people, growl, snap, and show teeth, or bite can be helped with our affordable behavior problem consultations. In this format, clients are interviewed, their dog’s behavior is explained, and customized exercises are demonstrated. Clients leave the first session with a written plan to help their dogs.  Typically one to two follow ups is necessary.  And many dogs eventually graduate to group classes. Whether your dog doesn’t like other dogs or people, we’re here to help. Is private instruction right for you?
  • Clients/dogs that prefer a one on one experience
  • Clients with challenging schedules
  • Dogs with special needs
  • Clients with unique interests
  • Dogs with aggression/extreme fear

Board and Train

Our methods include food, toy and life reward.  We do not train with collar corrections or force.  We do use humane consequences when necessary, but no physical corrections. Once your dog gets home, you will need to continue to reward some of the good behavior that your dog learns during its stay. Our custom programs range from $32/day to $60 day (in addition to your boarding fees), depending on your needs. We can keep them for a few days or a few weeks. Call (708) 636 – 1998 or email to can discuss what we can realistically teach your dog in what length of time. Is board and train right for you?
