Dog Training in Wicker Park, Chicago
If your dog is disobedient, you probably won’t be able to include it in your out-and-about lifestyle. If this is true for you, it’s probably time to consider dog training in Wicker Park. Let’s face it, it’s all about the lifestyle in Wicker Park. If you enjoy all that the area offers, you’re someone who enjoys a modern lifestyle. Maybe you enjoy delectable lunches at the Coast Sushi Bar, spending time with friends at The Anthem, or even like to while away the hours in the various art shops, boutiques and trendy restaurants. Chances are that if you have a dog, it’s with you most of the time, or being treated to a good pampering while you’re shopping up a storm. Regardless of how you spend your time with your dog, you want to ensure that it is well behaved in public (and at home for that matter). That’s where K9 University comes into play.
At K9 University in Wicker Park, Chicago, we won’t just teach your dog to sit and stay and be more obedient. Although that’s precisely what we will teach, there’s so much more that comes with training your dog: it creates a great bond between you and your dog. You will learn to communicate in a language that you can both understand. You will find that a dog considered to be “naughty” or destructive before, was simply misunderstanding and being misunderstood. A stimulated dog is one that wants to please. We are certain you will be pleased with the results of a good dog training program.
We teach puppies and grown dogs – it’s never too late to start. Our puppy training classes are aimed at teaching basic obedience, dog agility and K9 nose work for keeping him occupied at home. If you don’t want to travel to us, we can provide you with private lessons at home. For some dogs, this is more comfortable and makes for a better learning (and teaching) environment.

Dog Training FAQ’s
- What is nose work?
This fun canine sport will teach you how to encourage and develop your dog’s amazing sense of smell and natural desire to hunt by sniffing and locating a scent or odor target.
- Do you train dogs that are aggressive or have behavioral problems?
Yes. If you have an aggressive dog, a reactive dog or a nervous dog, we offer a dog boarding and training camp, which is ideal to train basic obedience, manners and life skills for dogs with behavioral problems.
- What is agility training?
Amongst many other things, your dog will go through tunnels, over jumps and learn to do the weave poles, dog walk and teeter. Agility training builds confidence, is mentally stimulating and a great form of exercise for dog and owner!
- What is the best – individual dog training or group classes?
It’s not that one is better than the other, but some dogs may not be sufficiently socialized to enter group training classes, or perhaps you don’t have time to attend regular group classes. We provide individual, one-on-one dog training, which has the benefit of fewer distractions and more personalized attention.
- Is the dog training classes inside or outside?
Inside. Our spacious, padded and climate-controlled 3,500 sq. ft. indoor facility provides plenty of room for dogs at every level of ability.
