Pet Obedience Training for Puppies and Adult Dogs

Obedience is not only about keeping your pet under control; it's also about being a leader. As pack animals, dogs are happiest when they know where they stand in relation to others. Furthermore, establishing your role as the pack leader makes it easier for them to pay closer attention to you and less attention to distractions. At Animal Care Center of Downers Grove, we know how important it is to have a healthy, well-established relationship with your pet. Therefore, we offer obedience training for both puppies and adult dogs in a safe, positive environment where owners can spend quality time with their pets. Our experienced trainer provides instructions that make obedience training both fun and educational.

Obedience training helps strengthen the human-animal bond, giving pets and their owners the ability to completely understand each other.

Our Puppy Classes

Every puppy needs a healthy start. While their medical needs will always take priority, their social and behavioral needs are important too. Our puppy classes are geared towards helping puppies develop healthy social skills with other dogs and people. They also offer the opportunity for you to train your puppy in basic commands and reduce unruly behaviors. Urinating in the house, chewing up the sofa cushions and stealing food off the counter are common behaviors that can be corrected with practice.

Our puppy classes include:

  • Socialization
  • Teaching your puppy sit, come, and stay
  • Walking on a leash
  • Tips for housebreaking
