Training Evaluation Information

Thank you for filling out our Training Evaluation Questionnaire!  Please read the information below based on where you are having your Training Evaluation as there is some information that is different between the two.

If you filled out the Training Evaluation Questionnaire directly from our website, we’ll be in contact in the 24-48 hours by your preferred contact method to schedule the Training Evaluation with you and your dog(s).  

If you have already talked to us on the phone and scheduled your Evaluation, please make sure to have your dog’s veterinary records sent to us (email, pic then texted to 815-955-7527) or have them ready at the beginning of the evaluation before we get started.  You can find our veterinary requirements on our website under the FAQs section.

If you have chosen to do the Training Evaluation at our location, we are looking forward to you seeing out beautiful property.  We are located at 11275 North Tabler Road, Minooka, I 60447.

 

Before the Training Evaluation Appointment

Before your Training Evaluation appointment, please sign into the Training Evaluation Online Course.  The course is included in the Training Evaluation.  Please begin going through the course before your appointment.  You’ll be able to get started with training right away!
 

During the Training Evaluation, we’ll be actively training your dog, going over material from the Training Evaluation online course and continuing with methods specific to your dog.  So please begin going through the course material before our appointment.

During the Training Evaluation Appointment

We will meet you in the driveway and proceed from there to our training room for the Evaluation.  Please have your dog on a secure collar and a 4-6 foot leash.  Please no flexi/retractable leashes or harness and have enough people present to control all dogs that you bring to the evaluation.  We also require all parties attending a Training Evaluation to wear a mask that covers both the nose and mouth. 

During the Training Evaluation, we’ll be actively training your dog, going over material from the Training Evaluation online course and continuing with methods specific to your dog.  So please begin going through the course material before our appointment.

We’ll be using food (typically orijen kibble, happy howies and ziwipeak).  If your dog has any food allergies or sensitivities, please let us know and have their food ready for us in the driveway that we can have so that when we get to the training room, we can get started training right away.  We don’t want your dog to get an upset tummy.  Also please make sure your dog hasn’t eaten within a few hours of the Training Evaluation so they are hungry for training with food.

At the end of the Training Evaluation you can decide if you want to sign up for our Foundation, Freedom Dog or Dream Dog programs in our Academy.  There is more information on our website about the Freedom Dog Training Academy.  When we finish up, you’ll have a training plan for you and your dog!

We are looking forward to meeting you and your dog!
