Basic Obedience Training for Dogs and Handlers
When their best behavior could be better
Basic Obedience Training for dogs and handlers who need to start at the beginning, this class teaches the basic skills: sit, down, stand, stay, come, watch, touch and leave it while exploring the use of markers in training. The handler learns how basic cues can help with good manners and proper leash walking. Designed for dogs five months and older, this class will provide the handler and dog a foundation for further learning.
Basic obedience training for dogs as well as puppy training is a matter of equipping your dog with the skills he or she needs to be successful in your life. We shape basic desired behaviors for a happy, well mannered, and healthy dog.
If you are looking for more advanced training, please check our Intermediate Dog Obedience Training class. If you’re looking to start your puppy off on the road to good obedience, start with our Puppy Training (for dog up to 6 months of age).

Ryan, a native Chicagoan and dog trainer since 2012, has a passion to understand dogs with special needs and a commitment to help their families provide them with the best care and life possible.
As a trainer at K9 University Chicago Ryan focuses on rehabilitating dogs that are reactive and have specific aggressions or triggers. His work allows these dogs to become more confident and comfortable around other dogs and people.
This work is highly specialized and rewarding but also critically important in a city that has so many dogs living together in close proximity with distractions that can easily become reactivity triggers for dogs that may have been abused or not socialized.
Ryan runs our Social Rehabilitation Group for dogs that need to play away from the main daycare groups. He often brings his own dogs, all rescues; Zedah, a Dogo Argentino, Maya, an American Staffordshire Terrier, and Spyro, an American Bully, to help teach the other dogs how to successfully play and cohabitate in a group setting.
Ryan also works with clients offering Board & Train packages and private training sessions.
