What to expect at our fun Puppy Training classes in Chicago

If you have just adopted a new puppy, consider puppy training classes at K9U in Chicago. With years of experience and expert staff, we at K9 University will assist you through every phase of training your new dog, while also ensuring your bond gets stronger. There are many dog training programs out there, but none quite like ours. Find out what you can expect from your puppy’s training classes and one-on-one training options.

Getting the right start for your puppy

Our puppy classes are designed for pups from ten weeks to five months old. This means that right from the beginning, your puppy will be trained to reach his full potential. The classes start with a group play session, where your puppy will learn to socialize with other dogs. This is crucial as it ensures that when you take your dog out, he can interact properly with his fellow four-legged friends. This is also vital if you have more than one dog. Next, the foundations will be laid for three crucial areas of dog training:

  1. Basic obedience
  2. Manners
  3. Socialization

Puppy training classes in Chicago Basic obedience will teach your puppy to recognize his name, to watch, to come, to sit and “down”, as well as how to walk on a leash properly. Good manners means that your dog will learn not to jump up on people, to stay in a crate, to eliminate only outside, to “leave it”, and to not bark excessively. Socialization will not only cover being able to interact with other dogs, but will help your puppy to behave properly in all situations, such as being gentle with children, riding in vehicles calmly, and behaving appropriately with visitors.

These are all the basic skills that your puppy should master before moving onto more advanced training, which we offer as well. We work with both you and your dog, so that each class is a fun and bonding time with your new pet.

Puppy school in the Chicago area

Once your puppy has graduated from puppy school, he can move onto the more advanced classes. We offer dog obedience, dog agility work, and nose training, in both a group setting and private one-on-one classes. We have been operating since 1992, with an aim to create a loving “home away from home” to bring out the very best in your pooch.

Whatever level of training you need for your dog, we at K9 University have the experience and the expertise to achieve those goals. Contact us today for more information.

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.
