  • Our spazzy hound mix, Paxton did great in the 10-day training! We’ve already noticed a big difference and will keep up the training at home with him. Thanks for a solid foundation!

    Our puppy attended the board and train program and she is doing so much better with her jumping up and leash pulling. They did an amazing job!

    Thank you trainers that worked with Tilly but especially Allison. She did an amazing job with our puppy. Well worth the time and money.

    Wow! Dog Training Now is incredible!! After just two weeks Mia is a brand new dog. I have been struggling to teach Mia to walk without pulling for the last five years. She now knows how to walk without pulling for her whole walk, as well as, knows how to heel and the difference between those two types of walks. Thank you, everyone, who worked with Mia and her sister Penny (our 2 year Old English Pocket Beagle) for these past two weeks at Dog Training Now. And, that was just a portion of what they learned. They are looking forward to seeing you next week to refine all that they learned, along with the other dogs you have there.

  • Our dog Alex could not wait to get to school with you. He obviously enjoyed his daily lessons and practiced them well at home. What a change! Our arms are shorter now that he does not pull on them. Wonderful experience, great staff, specially Allison and Kellie, we enjoyed it in spite of the long daily two-week commute from Evanston. Worth the time and $$. We will surely recommend it to other puppy owners!

    Our dog, Taloa had an absolutely wonderful experience with the team from Dog Training Now! The staff were friendly and worked so well with the dogs. Taloa couldn't wait to go see the other doand the trainers every day. She even by random chance got to meet and hang out every day with one for her littermates who happened to be doing the puppy camp too! We're looking forward to also doing the board and train next month. Thank you so much to the teams at DTN...we appreciate how much you love and care for our dogs!

    We adopted our 3ish year old mutt a few months ago. While he was generally mild mannered and well behaved, he would not sit on command, would jump up, and had bad leash manners. We took him to Dog Training Now for the 12 day board and train and are so happy with the results. He’s great on the leash now and I can take him when I go on walks with my kids. And the place command is an added bonus we didn’t know we needed! It’s so helpful to be able to get him to go lay down when things are getting crazy at our house. I would definitely recommend Dog Training Now; it’s worth every penny.

    Dog Training Now is one of the best choices we have made for Jack! From his initial training almost 4 years ago to the Board and Train programs we have used quite a few times! The updates they add daily and messages from the trainers let us know Jack is in good hands. He comes home exhausted and happy! Trainers Amy, Allison and Melanie have all taken great care of him!

    Pepper started at Puppy Day Camp and loved it. She got along with the trainers and enjoyed meeting new friends. In fact she liked it so much I was afraid she wouldn't want to come home with me (lol). I could feel the love the staff had for Pepper. They were always in a good mood. They were happy to greet Pepper. They answered any questions or concerns I had. Then came 12 day training. I missed Pepper terribly and had great anxiety that I made a huge mistake. But the days went by and I kept up on DTN page (love ALL the photos) and soon she was home again! Yay! She has learned so many things. Now the hard part is to keep up with it all! I think DTN should have a 12 day training for adults so they can remember all the good things you have trained our dogs to be! (Wouldn't that be fun!) All of the trainers deserve a huge KUDOS for all your patience, love and understanding of our four legged family members. A special shout out to Jon for taking such good care of Pepper. I'm sure she misses you tremendously. I highly recommend DTN to take care of all dogs!

  • Amazing experience with the whole team at Dog Training Now. Our 10 month old Pit Mix was extremely people shy and crate anxious. Within a couple days he was excited to head over to his day training! We did the 10 day program and I'm amazed at how well he has done, all thanks to the team! He even goes into his crate without fear! I chose DTN because of the reviews and they did not disappoint. We will definitely be using them for boarding services in the future. You could tell how much they care for each dog. Their process of training is extremely efficient. Oscar seemed a little bummed when our morning routine didn't include him getting dropped off for the first time after he graduated!

    Dog Training Now was recommended to us for our 8 month old "high energy" Lab puppy Lucy. We opted for the 10 day training program and are very pleased with the results. Lucy loved going to her camp and was one big wiggle when she saw her trainers. The skills Lucy learned daily were reviewed at pick-up time which was extremely helpful for us to continue the training at home. We would highly recommend Dog Training Now.

    Wow! I'm so impressed by Dog Training Now! We got our puppy in the middle of Quarantine and were a little nervous that training places wouldn't be open. DTN was able to get us right in for a consultation and let us know exactly what to expect. Our almost 6 month old girl just finished the 10-day Day Training and she's now so well behaved! She was so excited to go every day and we know she was very well taken care of.

    The best part is that now that she "graduated", they still have options for continued learning and refresher courses.

    I’ve had both a pit and little morkie get their training done here. They were extremely hands on and loving. The pups were excited to go to their schooling. They also answered all questions thoroughly, walked me through hands on training with the pups at the end of the day, and were always so friendly and happy. I absolutely recommend going here and will take my future pups here.

    I would recommend anyone here. When I got my husky puppy, he was the last one in the litter and was never around other dogs to learn bite inhibition. He was a little destructive and just really needed to be around other puppies. I brought him here to socialize and learn and it was the best decision I made for him, he completely stopped biting. He also LOVES the staff here, he was so excited to see them everyday and I felt like they really cared for him and he was in good hands. Plus they post the cutest pictures of your dogs playing and having fun. Taking my pup here was the best decision we made for him

    I love that I can provide an updated 5 star review for Dog Training Now. Henry has now done three classes with Dog Training Now. One was a refresher week and the other was the off leash program. I did do the board and train which was worth every penny. He had a great experience both times. After the first refresher week, he still had to work on a few things that have been a problem: jumping and being away from me. Since I had a few weeks between the refresher course and the off leash program, I spent a lot of time working on Henry's jumping and his comfort with being away from me (he still hates it to be honest...but his time whining after I put him in his crate away from me is steadily decreasing. I swear he really wants to try my patience here!) He boarded with Allison (who is fantastic and kept in touch with me the entire off leash program...we love her) and he responded fantastically to the off leash program. I loved all the photos and videos posted to Facebook. He has been home several days now and each day we practice 2-3 times for about 10-15 minutes. Henry is doing it all perfectly. I have had fun making some difference place areas in the house and having him stay, heel, etc. More importantly, my neighborhood is filled with little kids. Henry loves to lay in the front yard and over the past two days, he has stayed laying on the ground when the kiddos come over to pet him. Can't stop all the kisses he loves to give, but he is much more calm with the excitability happening around him with little kids (especially on bikes, with dolls in hand, etc.). He has also done great off leash in my neighborhood filled with barking dogs and traffic rolling by. The next steps for Henry include the Good Canine Citizen test (which I'm pretty confident he will do well on) and then eventually therapy dog training. Dog Training Now has really set him up for success, and I have to keep it going in order for it all to stick. They gave him a base that I did not have the time to dedicate and for that I am so grateful. Your dog is only as good as the time you spend with him/her!! I know this is a long review but I love this business so much and they are the best at what they do. You will not regret sending your dog here. I promise!!

    Loved our experience with Dog Training Now & would recommend them to anyone! All the staff is nice and knowledgeable. They treat each dog as if it were their own which makes it so much easier to turn your pup over to them every day. Love that they post pictures and videos so you can enjoy those throughout the day. This is our 2nd experience with them and I’m so grateful we found them. They taught Zeus basic obedience skills as well as learning how to be around other dogs. I love that Chris taught Zeus how to play tug! Such a simple thing, you would think, but Zeus really didn’t know how to play and was mouthy, which meant he didn’t play as much as he should. I love the bond Zeus formed with Chris after such a short time, so thank you for that! Thank you all for your time 🙂

    Dog Training Now is amazing! Being a first time dog parent to a very active and smart breed (Australian Shepherd) we wanted to make sure Sophie was given the proper training she needed to be a good dog and happy member of our family. We started out with puppy day camp, which we saw immediate results from. We then enrolled her in the 10 day- day training program where she learned skills that amaze us everyday! So many people cannot believe she is only 5 months old with how well behaved she is 🙂 I can't wait for Sophie to continue training at DTN - she loves all the trainers and her tail starts wagging as soon as we pull into the parking lot. Thank you DTN!

  • If you’re thinking about training your dog, you can’t go wrong with the experts at DTN. We got Winnie at about 4 months, had her spayed & waited for her to heal. Once Winnie was good to go, it was time to sign her up for training. She’s going to be a big pup & although Akitas are known to do their own thing, the trainers @ DTN, without a doubt, are committed to training your dog & helping you learn how to train your dog, too. Winnie learned so much when taking the 2 week training class. What surprised me the most & made me the happiest was when she finally jumped into my car. Winnie was so afraid of this in the beginning & is now an expert. The trainers always took their time to go over her daily training tasks. This was a great experience not only for Winnie but for me. You guys are awesome. Keep up the excellent work. I’m sure we’ll be back!! ?❤️

    I can not say enough on how much I love Dog Training Now! My pup, Sadie was adopted about a year ago and needed obedience help! I searched quite a bit knowing that I needed to feel comfortable with the place I chose since my dog would be boarded with them for 2 weeks. What set Dog Training Now far apart from the other places, was the trainers taking the dogs home every night with them to train in the home environment! This made the world of difference to me! I was so fortunate to work with Kellie! She was the BEST! She made me feel so comfortable with daily updates and pictures! She was so caring with Sadie, treating her like she was her own! I never had to worry about Sadie, I knew she was in the best hands! Kellie is still here for Sadie after training ended too! The trainers really care about the dogs! They wanted to help in anyway they can! The communication doesn't stop just because training did. With Kellie's help, Sadie is a completely different dog, IN THE BEST WAY! She is so happy, calm, relaxed and well mannered! Dog Training Now helps you understand your pup and helps you every bit of the way! If you are in your search for a training program, great news, you found the BEST place!

    I first and foremost want to thank DTN, the entire organization is professional, diligent, caring, and considerate. My journey, as i am sure many others when they first get a new puppy is to review and over analyze every option for basic training. There are a variety of different training, camps, and boarding all over the NW suburbs. I choose DTN because of its previous raving reviews and my initial conversation when i called in to inquire about basic information (cost, time, location- the staff member took 15+ minutes on a Friday night to ensure i was comfortable with all the details and had made it a priority to provide the best customer service possible) from the moment I put Sadie through the puppy training course for several weeks (starting at 8 weeks old), they gave her an outstanding foundation to manners, socialization, and proper puppy etiquette. In addition, they offered me advice on how to handle different situations, they gave me a open arms approach to any and all questions/concerns, as well as providing me with a detailed updates on progression and how to supplement their techniques in training Sadie.

    She also completed the 10-day board and train where they enhanced her skills previously learns/new skills and gave me the tools to continue with her the success from owner to pup! Naturally it is a little bit scary to leave your new best friend with a stranger, but I had full trust in the DTN staff and Sadie does as well. Every morning that I drop her off for camp (refresher coursers), she is excited to be greeted by not just her trainer, but every trainer there who has a hand in helping her become a great dog.

    I would highly recommend giving them an opportunity to earn your business, as you wont be disappointed from the results, along with the additional support you will receive by joining the DTN family.

    Thank you again to the entire staff!

The amount of time and care they put into training each pup is next to none. I was a bit skeptical of bringing my pup to any daycare but now Archie is a regular, attending 5 days a week.

She couldn't follow any commands before walking in to DTN. Now, she will sit, lay down, wait nicely at doors and doesn't try to take my arm off when we walk.

    Our 8 month old black lab Birdie recently went through the 12 day training. We missed her terribly, but we really needed help getting certain behaviors under control. I have always been skeptical about sending dogs away for training, as I felt like the behaviors should be corrected/ learned in the home environment. But Birdie needed something more intensive, so we gave it a try. And WOW- we literally brought home a new dog. I can’t say enough great things about the trainers and staff at DTN. Allison was amazing and updated me daily on Birdie with pictures and kept me informed what she was learning. The key has also been consistency since bringing her home 2 weeks ago. I am very very pleased with our experience at Dog Training Now, and highly recommend their service.

    5 star ratingOur dog had an amazing experience with the 2-week training program at Dog Training Now. Walking our dog is way easier, and he is well behaved. It is obvious that the trainers love dogs and are excellent at their jobs. I could not be happier we chose DTN and recommend them for training, training refresher, and boarding needs. Love them!

    Beyond grateful for Dog Training Now! We rescued our three year old pup and he was a little hard to handle on walks, always was jumping on us, and not socialized with other dogs well at all. After the 10 day training program we have a trained and well behaved dog who we can take for walks now and actually enjoy them and one who actually listens to us. I HIGHLY recommend Dog Training Now for your pet, they not only train your dog but they honestly grow to love and cared for your pet, don’t have one bad thing to say. So so happy. Thank you.

    It’s been almost five years since Duffy, our wheaten terrier attended the puppy class and the 10 day training class.

    She is a better dog for it! Best training classes around. I always recommend DTN to everyone I meet that has a new pup.

    So glad we found this class. Just had to say it again... you can’t go wrong with Dog Training Now!

    Dog Training Now is absolutely amazing. We did the 12 day board and train for our seven month old Great Dane and my family was blown away with what he learned. He is en route to becoming a service dog and this training was soooooo incredible in advancing him. Danny was assigned to Zazu and had a HUGE wealth of knowledge. He kept in contact with me daily and sent great photos of my pup. Zazu is so incredibly lucky to have had this training. Thank you so much to the incredibly talented trainers at Dog Training Now!!!! He will be back weekly to refresh on his skills!!!

  • Dog Training Now is great. I took my 9 month old Boxer for the 10 day training and he came out a new dog. We go back on occasion for the graduate training days, which he loves, cannot wait to get inside. I've also boarded twice and love that Leroy goes home with someone. Would recommend DTN to anyone looking to put manners in their dog.

    5 star ratingI could not be happier with my experience at Dog Training Now, and I'm already planning on when I can bring him back for continued training and even therapy dog training.

    I brought Henry, my mini goldendoodle, to Dog Training Now for a few reasons.  I had already put him through a in-house training program immediately after I got him as a puppy, and I had also completed a Puppy AKC class.  I had to travel extensively after this time, and he was boarded at a local doggy daycare.  After I returned from several trips, it was like all the training I had done had disappeared.  Henry was jumping on people, not sitting well, not laying down, and certainly not coming consistently.  I was honestly crushed that the money and time I had spent training him had gone to pot after boarding.

    I first brought Henry in for an interview and I felt at ease right away.  I could tell that they have a clearly defined process and program for dog training.  The staff is well trained and REALLY cares about what they do.  I immediately jumped on the two week course.  My only regret was that I should have had him do the in-house boarding/training course, because DTN is 20 minutes from home (going away from downtown) and I had to commute back downtown on the Metra.  It was a very long 2 weeks of commuting and stress for me that I would have paid extra to avoid!

    Each day Henry had a focused activity and I received my lesson on that specific activity at night.  I was given material to read on day 1, and I read all of it.  We practiced a bit each night, although he was tired at times and he often gave me this look that said "enough Mom, I want to chew this bone and lay down."  

    Henry took to the training quickly, but he still requires regular training from me until he just "gets" it.  He is only 7 months old, so I have months of reinforcement ahead of me.  I have all the tools and resources I could ever need from DTN.

    I feel like I need Henry to stay with DTN whenever I have to travel for longer than 3-4 days to preserve his training.  Also, I would want him to  get tons of love that does not come from sleeping in a strange crate in a big room with a bunch of barking dogs.  

    I honestly cannot recommend Dog Training Now enough.  Really great business with wonderful and caring trainers.

    After trying in-home training and group training elsewhere for our Goldendoodle​, Miles, he was still hard to control. He was nipping at us and everyone he met. We could barely control him on a ​leash.

    After two weeks of day-training, it's like having a new dog! We can walk him and he stays with us, and he barely nips at all. We are trying to keep up with all that he (and we) learned​ because it is so effective. It is a great balance of praise and discipline that is hard to find in other training​. Thanks to the great people at Dog Training Now! Miles loved being with you and you were so kind to him. We will be back for sure. We can't recommend​ you highly enough!

    Dog Training Now is terrific! Our 7 1/2 month old puppy Bailey just completed the 10 day training program and they were great! They took SO much time every day to answer all of our questions. They were extremely helpful, patient and kind. They would ask us each morning how Bailey did the night before. At the end of everyday, they would take time to walk us through the day's lesson step by step and help us practice it before taking Bailey home. They went above and beyond by helping us address a particular challenge that Bailey was having at home. We loved the pictures they posted on FB everyday. Their communication to us throughout the process, starting with the scheduling process was terrific. The trainers are great and we can tell they really care about our dogs. While Bailey's behavior isn't 100% perfect yet, we have a great foundation to build on. And we know that Dog Training Now is always there for additional refresher training for Bailey and for us. We would highly recommend DTN!

    I cannot say enough good things about DTN!! We put our puppy Jax in the Puppy Day Care for a couple weeks to learn some basic potty training and get socialized. Jax had so much fun!! The staff made such a good impression that it was an easy decision to use DTN again when we needed to get Jax more structured training. The staff is so nice, easy to talk to, and everyone knows each dog and their personality. They answered my questions through email/portal right away, making them super reliable when you need. We did the 10 day training and Jax has come so far! Every time we pick up, they spend adequate time to train us. I’m super happy with the results. In addition, now that Jax is trained, we can use DTN for daily day care and boarding. This was so important because we have sent Jax to other places and they are smelly, dirty, and Jax always came back sick or tired for several days because there is not enough people supervising. DTN’s facility is clean, and I can send Jax for day care knowing he is still getting refresher training!! I have already booked Jax for boarding for when I travel. DTN is actually out of my way to work but SO worth the drive! I also love the updates on FB! Okay like I said...I can’t say enough good things about DTN!!

    1 star ratingLoved first time training for 12 days. Very disappointed on 4 day boarding. Alyssa's gone.

    Told of some of my concerns and was told that their trainers have a life and can't work 24/7. I think they are if I'm paying for those days.

    Not happy with trainer who has no certification and only there 2 months.

    Not going back.

    They not only train your dog, but train you too... Dan was always available to explain the training and solve any issues. All trainers are very professional and friendly. Our french bulldog Olga is behaving so much better. We would definitely recommend them to everyone. Trust the process and you will have a happier dog in a happier house! 🙂
