In-Home Private Lessons

In our In-Home Private Lessons, we work one-on-one with you and your puppy(s) in the comfort of your home.  The first lesson is a working evaluation plus a lesson.  We’ll talk to you about what’s going on with your puppy(s), meet your puppy(s) and devise a training plan.  

We’ll also get started working with your puppy(s) and you on how to implement the training plan so you can get started right away!  We want you to be able to immediately start decreasing the stress that brought you to training at your first lesson!

In-home private lessons are done individually and begin with focusing on the puppy’s state of mind (teaching calmness and better decision making), leadership and obedience.

Lessons typically last 1.5-2.5 hours, in your home, and includes travel within 30 minutes of our location in Minooka, IL.  The cost is $175 during the weekdays/weeknights and $225 on the weekends. After your first lesson when you’re ready to continue training, we can schedule follow up lessons. 

If you are located more than 30 minutes from us, please contact us for a custom price quote that will include a travel fee to your home or consider our Good Dog Program which is taught at our location.

*Once you have covered loose leash walking, sit, down, mat, and come on leash you can join our Use It or Lose It group class.

Board & Train Puppy Programs

Our puppy programs are designed with the busy family in mind. We know how hard it is to lose sleep due to a crying puppy.  We know how hard it is to listen to kids screaming because a puppy is latched on to their pant leg or chomping at their arms.  We know how much is involved in raising a puppy.

But we also know how important it is to do it right.  What is done with a puppy between the ages of 8-20 weeks can shape that puppy’s entire future.  Puppies need to learn right from wrong, they need to learn basic commands, and they need to learn that the world is not a big scary place.  They need to go on lots of “safe” outings to be socialized correctly, they need to be exposed to new dogs and people in a controlled way, and they need to be taught that puppy behavior is for other puppies, not small kids.

We love puppies and we love preparing them for life with their new families.  Our puppy 1 & 2 month programs will set your puppy up confidently to face the world and begin basic obedience.  Our Awesome Puppy program will not only give your puppy confidence, but will also get your puppy started well on its way to off-leash freedom.  We know what it takes to produce a confident, well-mannered dogs that you can take with you to tons of pet friendly places.  We’d love to chat with you about our programs to see if your new puppy is a good fit.
