Would you like to take an enjoyable and peaceful walk with your dog?

Would you like your dog to listen the first time you tell him to do something?

Would you like your dog to be well-mannered around visitors and in public places?

All of this is possible and so much more with our training programs! Imagine no more embarrassment from your dog’s excessive barking or jumping on people…

..and no more chasing him around the house or yard when he’s not listening! Just imagine your dog walking quietly at your side even when other people and dogs pass by!

Your dog can be polite, calm, happy, and content, understanding what is expected of him in your family and in your home. He can be proud of himself because he now understands what you want him to do and loves to please you.

"This was my third dog trainer and this was the best instructor ever!"

Erin O. from Glen Ellyn

"The class went past my expectations. I never thought my dog could ever be this obedient! She could not even sit when she started the class. Now she can do everything we ask her to do. The trainer, Michele gave us great tips to work with our very excited dog."
