Agility Training Additional Services
To keep sporting breeds and high energy dogs well balanced and happy requires lots of mental and physical exercise. Playing with the pack is sometimes not enough to challenge these active dogs. Dogs that can not play with the pack, for whatever reason, also need new ways to remain active. To provide another level of activity we are now offering an agility training service for our daycare and boarding dogs.

Grace has been around dogs throughout her life. In many ways her life is centered around dogs. From training dogs, to relying on Medical Alert Service Dogs for daily tasks, to competing in National Agility competitions, dogs have been teammates, companions and life partners.
Grace’s home pack currently consists of four dogs each with their own special skills and gifts. She trains and competes in agility with her two Miniature Schnauzers Gus and Bernie, who qualified for nationals in his first year of competing! As well as her Standard Poodle, Rafiki, and her Sheltie, Bella, who is a NADAC Champion. Rafiki is also a working Medical Alert Dog and training for Water Fowl retrieval in her spare time.
At K9U Chicago Grace will teach all levels of Agility Training from puppies to competition and will be teaching group obedience training classes. Grace uses only positive training methods and believes in having fun while learning new skills that enhance the bond between dogs and their owners.
When not at K9U Chicago Grace volunteers with shelters and rescue groups in Naperville to help the disabled connect and train service dogs. She also founded Beard & Golden a hand-made custom clothing company providing dog gear and accessories.
Jessica is a native of Aurora, Illinois, and has a big love for dogs, especially large active breeds!
She has two dogs of her own that she trains in high energy sports such as Dock Diving and PSA, a protection sport. Her Cane Corso, Kovu, is a service dog and her German Shepherd, Akuma, is currently training in Schutzhund (IGP) a protective bite sport.
Her focus as a trainer at K9 University Chicago will be with our Day Trains, Board & Trains and Private Lesson programs. She has significant experience with many of the larger breeds that can be a bit more challenging to train, but of course she welcomes all breeds and can’t resist a puppy!
As a certified NAVC Canine Nutrition Coach, Jessica is happy to share her knowledge and expertise to help you optimize specific fitness and nutritional goals for your dog so they can live their best possible life, healthy and happy!
