Dog Group Play Conditioning

What is Dog Group Play Conditioning?

Customized dog group play conditioning and coaching activities to use, maintain, or improve your dog’s mental strength while building relationship with other dogs and the handler. The service is available to our guests in Dog Daycare or Dog Boarding.

A trainer selects small group play settings for individual dogs that can’t play in a larger group.

How Does Group Play Conditioning Help Dogs?

This focused coaching service provides all dogs a safe place to play and teaches them how to engage with other dogs in a respectful manner.

These dogs receive the needed mental and physical stimulation that helps to keep them healthy while building their social confidence.

This program redirects the enthusiasm and energy that can often be displayed in unsocial ways into a fun outlet for play and socialization.

What Makes K9U’s Dog Group Play Conditioning Unique?

Many daycare settings don’t offer group play options for dogs that can’t play in the established group. This is because they don’t have the space or the trainers experienced in interrupting dog body language and behavior cues.

Why Only at K9U Chicago?

K9U Chicago accepts all dogs, even those dogs other facilities won’t accept into their daycare programs.

Because of this belief that all dogs deserve a safe place to play; programs like Dog Group Play Conditioning (or coaching) have been created to nurture dogs that just need the right environment to learn how to responsibly engage and successfully play with other dogs.

Dog Group Play Pricing

This service is available with Daycare or Boarding and costs $15 per session.

Why Our Clients Love Us

K9U is great. They offer classes as well as day camp /sitting services. The size of the location is pretty impressive, as they have a large indoor and outdoor areas for dogs to play. (They even pick up and drop off your dog.). The staff and trainers are very friendly and extremely effective.James J.
K9 University is great. We’ve been going there for 7 and a half years. We’ve done training, we’ve done agility, we’ve done boarding and we’ve done daycare. The only thing we haven’t done is a drop off and pick up. My dog is kind of a nut and they deal with her well. Debbie W.
My dog has experienced everything at K9U: daycare, classes and boarding. When he is either picked up by the K9U van or dropped off his tail is wagging like crazy. When I pick him up he is happy to see me, goes outside to relieve himself and then pulls to go back in. Jane F.
