Obedience Training is generally teaching a dog to perform specific behaviors, such as sit, down, and heel on cue.
An obedient dog is more than a dog who knows how to sit and stay. It is a dog who has learned the fundamentals for good behavior and manners. Sit and stay can also mean, sit by the door and stay until I am ready to go!
Private lessons are always the fastest road to your training goals and have many advantages. See benefits to private in-home training for more information.
Private In-home Obedience Training Packages
Sessions are 1 hour long. Our first visit will be an in-home evaluation which is $40, however, the evaluation will be free if you sign up for a package that day.
Please note that we can only travel 15 miles outside of Streamwood IL for private training sessions.
There will be a $2.00 per mile surcharge for any extra mile after 15 miles. Our maximum travel
radius is 20 miles outside of Streamwood IL.
In this package you will learn leadership roles, house training, socialization skills, nipping, destructive behavior and other common puppy issues. Basic obedience commands will also be taught like sit, down, come and walking on a leash.
This class refines all the basic obedience commands and prepares you for advanced training. More real life distractions will be
added. Behavior problems will be evaluated
and addressed as well.

This class teaches fun parlor tricks such as roll over, play dead, balance treat on nose, cover nose, sit pretty, give paw, high five, hide and seek and much more!

Let's Go for a Walk!
In these sessions we will focus on loose leash walking and heeling. Here I will teach you good habits while walking with your dog. I can help you with proper leadership skills and teach you how to work with your dog on focus behaviors in distracting environments.
Canine Good Citizen
Started in 1989, CGC is a certification program through the AKC that is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. The Canine Good Citizen Program is a two-part program that stresses responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs. All dogs who pass the 10-step CGC test may receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club. The classes can be done in your home, but the test has to be done in another safe location.
