Group Dog Training Classes

A well trained dog can make everyone in the home happier, including Fido!  Our dogs want to please us, they just need to be shown how to do so in a way they understand.  We can help with that.

Our group dog training classes are designed with the family pet dog in mind so that you all can live happily and peacefully together.  We also focus on training exercises that will help keep your dog safe.

Group classes are a great choice for those who are seeking the distractions that a group class can offer dogs and for those who do not seek the individual attention that our in-home dog training programs offer.

So don’t miss out…space is limited in our group classes!  If you need some help figuring out which class fits you and your dog the best, feel free to give us a call at (708)220-9511.

Puppy sits for treat - Group Dog Training Classes

Would having a better trained dog bring more peace and happiness to your home? Would you like to have visitors over without worrying about how your dog will behave? Would you like to take enjoyable walks with your dog instead of being pulled down the street?

This class will teach your dog to sit, stay, come when called, leave it (off-limit items), drop it, greeting behavior, and loose leash walking. These commands will help your dog to listen better at home and in public on a short leash around mild distractions…

..This course also addresses housebreaking, playful nipping, destructive chewing, jumping, barking, begging, digging, attention seeking behaviors, and more!  Upcoming Classes

 

Puppy Training in Orland Park, IllinoisPawsitively Pleasant Pet:

Would you like to feel confident in knowing that your dog is trained not to dash our doors and will come when called? Would you like to have more control of your dog in public and more distracting environments? Would you like to impress your friends and family with how well behaved your dog is when they visit?

This class includes training your dog to go to his place, lay down on command, stay with distractions, to watch you on command, and heel at your side… which is very useful when you need extra control of your dog like when crossing the streets, passing somebody, walking through parking lots, and walking into the vet’s office, etc….

…This course also includes an optional bonus seminar that addresses housebreaking, playful nipping, destructive chewing, jumping, barking, begging, digging, attention seeking behaviors, and more!  Upcoming Classes 

Puppy Training in Orland Park, IllinoisDoggone Good Canine College:

Think about how proud you will feel when everyone compliments on how well behaved your dog is.  You can have peace of mind knowing you did everything possible to keep your dog safe.

When choosing this course, not only will you have an extremely well behaved and polite dog, but your Off leash dog training - Group Dog Training Classesdog will be more reliable around bigger distractions and temptations…and therefore less likely to get hit by a car or eat pills that drop on the floor, etc.

In this class you will learn how to teach your dog:

  • To stay and come at further distances and around more distractions.
  • An emergency “come” and an emergency “down”, which is to lie down quickly when at a distance from you.
  • To quickly transition from loose leash walking to heel, allowing for an even smoother walk with your dog.
  • Not to eat anything that falls on the floor even without telling him to “leave it”. This is very useful in case you didn’t know you dropped something, or a visitor drops something when you aren’t around, or your dog gets to it before you have a chance to say “leave it”… Just think about the vet bills this can prevent!
