Only the best training methods at our dog obedience school in Chicago

Are you looking for dog obedience school in Chicago? In this day and age our pets are like our children, so we want the absolute best for them. Just as you would research your local schools before enrolling your kids, it’s important to find out what training methods your obedience school will be using when you get your dogs trained. Read on to find out how we do things.

We start with the most important basics

Setting a good foundation right from the start is extremely important. With dog training, we start with the absolute basics and then build from there. At the first level, we teach sit, down, stand, stay, come, watch, touch and leave it. This training is for both the dog and his handler, so both of you will be learning. Your dog will learn the proper manners for leash walking, managing distractions, as well as learning to control themselves with things like barking and jumping up on people. This course is for dogs older than five months.

Basic skills that will be taught:

Learning manners will include proper leash behavior, barking, sit to greet, and jumping up. For managing distractions, your dog will learn “leave it”, settle and “sit-down-stay” with increased levels of distraction.

Our other areas of expertise include puppy obedience training, intermediate dog training as well as advanced dog training classes in Chicago.

Why Our Clients Love Us

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.
I was referred by a previous customer. I had never used a daycare before and my experience has been wonderful since day ONE! The staff is friendly, welcoming and attentive to my dog (and me…LOL)…She loves going there.Tracee A.
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.
I’ve been a customer for 15 years and counting. K9 helped us raise our puppies and cherish our old girls. I can think of no other place I would trust more with my furry family.Jonathan A.
This is really awesome dog place. We had a basic obedience training here, and our dog is changed! She listens now, and behaving well, our trainer is really good - she is like a dog whisperer. Love and recommend this place for all dog parents out there.Yessie S.
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.
