Dog Boarding and Training
Boarding Combined with Training – Boot Camp for Dogs!
The best first step towards a well-behaved dog is professional training. A personalized dog boarding and training bootcamp (a.k.a., boot camp for dogs, dog boarding school, or dog obedience boarding school) is ideal to train basic obedience, socialization, manners, and life skills. It is also well suited for training dogs with behavioral problems – aggressive dogs, reactive dogs or nervous dogs.
We believe that if an unwanted behavior is not addressed, it will not get better and probably will get worse. In this immersive training and through socialization and private one-on-one sessions, we help you address any particular behavioral challenges you want to address and provide you daily communication, pictures and video for you to view the dog’s progress. We’ll help you learn techniques to successfully integrate your dog into your home as a polite member of the family for years to come.
Special packages available for daily training with boarding

- Progress updates by phone

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.
