All Dog Training Starts with the Basics which is what we call Foundation Training. Foundation Dog Training in Fox Valley begins with basic obedience training. Teaching your dogs the fundamentals of Sit, Down, Stay, Come and A Release command is the building blocks for Advanced Dog Training. 

There is no one size fits all training for dogs. Regardless of your training goals you must work each level of training in order to reach your goal.

Why In Home Training is more effective than group Dog Training in Fox Valley IL

Just like children, learning happens best when in a relaxed and quiet environment. It allows your dog to concentrate and absorb new information without distractions. This is the “Learning” stage of dog training in Fox Valley Il  and it’s best to train in your home.

We recommend In Home Dog Training versus Group Training Classes.

Benefits of In Home Dog Training in Fox Valley IL

    • Personalized attention: Training with a professional dog trainer in your home allows us to really focus on your family and dog training goals
    • Individual programs: Every Dog and every family will have different expectations for their dog’s training. In Home training allows us to customize your needs and work with the whole family.
    • Flexible scheduling: People have busy lives, so you don’t have to stay committed to a particular day and time for your dog training needs. We have days, evenings and Saturdays In Home Dog Training Options.
    • Less distraction: Allows both the dog and family members to learn skills at a faster rate and is more effective.
    • Reduces frustration, anxiety, stress: Group classes can be loud, unorganized, and stressful for both the dog and the pet parent who may get frustrated because their dog is unmanageable and disturbing the class which can be embarrassing.

Many people confuse group training classes as “socialization” Unless the group class offers time for the dogs to “interact” then it is not socializing, it distraction. Distraction training happens after your dogs has learnt basic foundation skills and then is able to perform in a environment that can pull the attention away from the handler. For example Leash Walking.  Most dogs will pull on a leash if they see a squirrel, another dog, or a person. However if your dog understands the principals of walking on leash, then it will be less likely that the dog will pull.
