Didn’t adopt a dog from us? You can still come to training! 100% of the training $60 fee goes to rescuing more dogs!! So not only are you getting a well-trained dog, but you are helping other dogs still waiting for their forever homes !!
If your dog is in need of an evaluation or special one-on-one training for specific problems, please contact us directly at 847-985-7384. We will set up an appointment to address your concerns.

• If you or your dog are feeling ill, do not come to class.

All handlers are required to wear gym shoes or safe closed-toe/back shoes. No sandals or flip-flops.
