Individual Activities for Dogs

What is Individual Activities for Dogs?

Individual Activities for Dogs is a trainer curated service that provides custom one-on-one attention with our team of trainers and dog handlers. We design activities around each dog to provide them with plenty of individual attention and lots of exercise using elements they love and enjoy.  The service is available to our guests in Dog Daycare or Dog Boarding.

We offer this extra service for any dog that can’t play safely in our general group for a variety of reasons including those dogs that have a rough play style or are reactive with other dogs and for all unaltered dogs. All dogs participating in this service should be 5 months or older.

Individual play activities include:

  • Fetching with a frisbee or tennis ball or using the Go Dog Go Machine
  • Treadmill exercise
  • Rope toy tugging
  • Agility equipment including A-frames, tunnels, and hurdles
  • Work out using Fit Paws equipment

How Does Individual Activities for Dogs 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 Individual Activities for Dog Unique?

Many dog daycare settings don’t offer individual activities options for dogs that can’t play in the established group. This is because they don’t have 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 Individual Training for Dogs (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.

Individual Activities Pricing

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

Yazmin Lopez

My name is Yazmin,

I was born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico.

Since I was a child I have always loved dogs and becoming a dog trainer now is like a dream come true.

My duty as a trainer is to not only build a strong bond between owners and their pets, but to educate them on the method of positive reinforcement training and behavior modification. This is my way of contributing a little to society by making dogs great furry family members.

In addition to my contribution to society, I volunteered for two years in Nuevo León, Mexico for an animal shelter. My experience also extends to agility training.

My husband and I founded a pet care and BARF food company back home in Mexico. We live, breath, and sleep dogs and dedicated our lives to making the world a better place by training these extraordinary animals.

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.
