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.

Meet Our Trainers
Judy Louis is a certified clicker trainer – certified by Karen Pryor Academy. Her goal is to develop the incredible human /animal bond using clicker training. Judy uses positive reinforcement techniques to teach socialization and behavior skills for both her human and canine clients. She will help you successfully integrate your dog or puppy into your home and lifestyle. Judy coaches clients in the comfort of their homes, in small group classes, in board & train programs or via day training based on their desired environment and needs of the animal. Her clients receive daily videos to observe the techniques and cues that are being used to train their dog, and to monitor progress. The videos are invaluable, especially once the training is complete, as they allow you to view them again as needed, ensuring a lifetime of reinforcing positive behaviors and communicating effectively with your furry friend.
Training Options Available: Board & Train, Day Training, Private In-Home Training and Small Group Obedience Training Classes.
