OBEDIENCE CLASSES

About Dog Obedience Classes at Bark Avenue

Dog and Puppy Obedience classes are for all dogs age 4 months or older.  If your dog is younger than 4 months but you need a dog trainer, please call us at 630.289.8470 to discuss your situation.

At Bark Avenue Daycamp, we provide both dog and puppy obedience and behavioral training.  The dog trainer’s ability to build a trusting relationship with dogs of all sizes and breeds makes her a very effective trainer, capable of addressing even the toughest issues.  As a dog owner in Elgin IL or any other Chicago suburb, you will work with the trainer to learn the skills necessary to bring out the best in your pet and to ensure that they are well behaved at all times.  You will learn the importance of providing leadership to your dog in addition to the love and affection they already receive from you.  Whether you live in St Charles, Elgin or Schaumburg IL, you’ll build a relationship based on trust and respect with your dog or puppy.  Combining leadership with love and affection creates an unbreakable bond between you and your pet.
