Day Camp – Dog Day Training Academy

Bringing Out the Best in Your Dog

Do you want to bring out the best in your dog? Then dog day training is for you.  With dog day training, you can make the most out of the time your pup gets to spend at K9 University in Chicago with the major benefit of being able to take him or her home the same day.  Instead of booking your dog in for dog boarding, you can get a comprehensive day of training that can teach your dog everything from basic obedience to interesting tricks.

In this personalized training, through socialization and private one-on-one, we focus on drills to sharpen basic daily skills and provide you daily communication, pictures, and video for you to view the dog’s progress.  We’ll give you pointers to successfully continue to reinforce the behaviors taught in Day camp at home for long term success.  Your dog comes home happy and well behaved.

Puppy Day Training

Our dog day training is ideal for adult dogs as well as puppies. Many people prefer the dog day training option as it provides an economical solution to getting the right coaching for you and your pup. As a multi-faceted dog training facility, K9 University has incorporated all the important lessons taught in our puppy training and obedience lessons into our dog day training.

If you are the owner of a puppy, for example, our trainers will train your pup according to the principles that have been known to help puppies 10 weeks to 5 months old with basic obedience, manners, and socialization. These classes will ensure that these very young DOG DAY CAMP students become happy, healthy, polite, and housebroken pets that you can be proud of.

For older dogs, our basic obedience dog training techniques are used to teach the basic skills such as sit, down, stay, come, watch, touch, and leave it. Depending on your unique needs, we can incorporate training from learning manners (for example proper leash behavior and barking) to managing distractions.

In Day Camp, as well as in all our training programs, we use positive behavioral training techniques to build your puppy or adult dog manners and confidence.

House training a dog in 7 days is possible if you remember a few things. First, use treats as a reward for going outside. Second, save playtime for after your dog goes outside. Lastly, especially overnight, be boring when you go out, so they don’t want to play.
For dogs, training is a lot like play. You can get moments of training in throughout the day. You don’t need to stop everything you’re doing to train your dog each day. Instead use times like going potty outside, eating time and leash time to train your dog.

Ryan Kamm

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.

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.
