In-Home Dog Training Chicago

The Chicago area is our home base for in-home training.

Smart Dogs' home base is in Downers Grove, IL just west of Chicago. If you have a dog behavior problem that needs one-on-one attention, private lessons in your home can help prevent and/or resolve issues. If you have a dog that needs an immersion program we have the "doggy boot camp"/board and train option that turns behavior around quickly.

Dog training and behavior topics that we can help you with:

  • Manners and Obedience

  • Walking/Pulling/Lunging

  • Potty Training

  • Greeting Strangers

  • Nipping

  • Chewing

  • Barking

  • Car issues

  • Aggression

  • Fear

  • Off-Leash

  • Growling

  • Food issues

  • Crate issues

  • Socialization

  • Agility & Advanced Tricks

  • Canine Good Citizen 

  • Therapy Dog

 

We will work specifically on concerns you have with your dog inside and outside of your home while building a long-lasting foundation.

We have one time sessions or we have 3, 6, 10, 20 or unlimited packages.

Call us today for your FREE Dog Behavior Consultation.

"We adopted a 4 year old Samoyed with behavior issues, and that was the reason he was given up. My husband & I felt his next step was a shelter if we didn't take him or worse. We are so grateful we found Smart Dogs and Kristy. After just one session in our home, within two days, our dog Bart has changed for the better."
