High quality education for any breed of dog.

Standalone + companion training options available.

Specialized TRAINERS for Obedience, Estate Dogs,
Therapy, & Service Dogs

We have a variety of training classes available to suit the needs of our clients. Many of our classes run on Sunday mornings & Saturdays here in Spring Grove, Illinois. We are also happy to try to help you during a time convenient for you. We do in-home training, private classes, and group classes.

We encourage family and canine socialization and positive reinforcement in everything we do. We believe in educating each dog to its fullest capabilities, for whichever service it will be used for. We educate every dog as an individual - we don't use 'mass training' procedures.

We now also provide Covid-friendly virtual or remote dog training sessions - for those who can't attend our sessions in person, for whatever reason. Learn more about our remote training sessions here.
