Puppy School

This is Chicago's ONLY fully off leash puppy class. Open to puppies aged 8 weeks to 5 months, we focus on teaching basic manners, as well as handling, socialization, and how to combat common puppy behavior problems. Each student receives a free e-book, AFTER You Get Your Puppy, written by world renowned veterinary behaviorist Dr. Ian Dunbar, as well as written and video homework. Skills taught are: sit, down, stand, leave it, take it, drop it, heel, polite greetings, and as well as a few fun tricks! 

Six week course. $175


 

Adult Obedience

Beginner Obedience with a twist! Instead of the old approach of meeting once a week for a set amount of time, we are going to flip that! Each new team meets with a trainer for two private training sessions in your home. After those two sessions each team gets access to group classes, held twice a week each week, for six months. Come to one a week, two a week, you set your own schedule! The class is all levels, beginner to more advanced, each class working on both obedience skills (sit, down, come, heel, place) and manners (off, leave it, out). This class is open to dogs six months or older. This class is not for dogs with major behavior issues.

Two private lessons and six month class access. $550


 

Agility

A fast paced obstacle course for dogs, it challenges both handler and dog to be fast and efficient. In this class we build a solid foundation of both handling and obstacle performance. Build you dog's confidence as well as giving them an appropriate outlet. Whether you are just starting out or continuing on to learn more about the sport, we have a class for every dog!  For our beginner classes there is no prior training required, though we do encourage each team to complete a basic obedience course prior to enrollment; for our intermediate and advanced agility we do require completion of beginner agility or instructor approval prior to enrollment.

Six week course. $175
