Have you asked yourself these questions ?

Do you wish your dog would  listen to you better?  Especially around distractions?

Have you tried everything to get your dog to stop having  accidents in the house?

Does your dog bark incessantly and make your home feel chaotic?

Are you frustrated that your dog jumps on guests and family?

Are you jealous of friends who can take their dog on a walk without pulling on the leash?

Are you at your wit’s end, feeling like you’ve tried everything and still need help?

In just a few short weeks, we can teach your dog to:

  • Stop pulling on the leash when on a walk
  • Sit on command
  • Stay on command
  • Go to a designated “place” when told

  • 5 star ratingDog Training Now has been wonderful! They did an excellent job with our 2 bull mastiffs Cleo and Titus. They go over everything step by step and they are good about making sure you know how to correct the dogs when they aren't listening. My dogs would get excited every time we would pull into the parking lot.  The best part is that they would be so exhausted by the time they got home, and they would just fall asleep all evening. Highly recommend this place.  Very nice people and you won't be disappointed.

    Took our stubborn beagle/bulldog mix Cable here after hearing good things from multiple people about DTN. We did the 10-day Day Training program & I couldn't be happier! Even at his most stubborn, he was still able to get the skills down. These people have the most patience for dealing with Cable. Incredibly friendly staff (no seriously they're all the sweetest people), very hands on & patient, and they give nothing short of a great experience. I would 10/10 recommend to anyone who needs help training their pups.

    DTN was and still is a life changing experience for our family and little pup. DTN helped set a foundation to recommended issues that we will eventually face as our pup matures. DTN's training program is effective, but the continued success will be up to the family's dedication and be pro active in reapplying what was learned.

    It's an investment that will reap great returns through our pups lifetime.

  • Little Bit was a shy, scared 3 month old Morkie when she started Puppy Camp. The staff took her under their wings and gave her the right amount of love, attention and guidance. She grew confident even though she is "little^. At almost 5 months she graduated Obedience School with flying colors. She will now attend Graduate School a few days a week to keep up the skills she has learned and build on them. Little Bit loves going there. I'm so glad we found Dog Training Now!

Finley went for the 12 day Board and Train Program and spent days at DTN and went home with one of the trainers (Danny). We would see posts of his progress on FB and Instagram, but we were not prepared for his transformation.

    I cannot say enough nice things about this business. I brought my 1 yr old french bulldog with zero manners and Dan and all the trainers turned him into a proper young dog. He finished the 10 day program, day training. He was well taken care and enjoyed going every day. I think he even misses it. He learned all the skills I was told he would and on schedule. I would recommend this business and would bring any dog to them for training. They are fantastic!

    I highly recommend Dog Training Now. We were first time dog owners and knew we needed to get our excitable puppy Cooper some training but didn’t know where to go. We saw the positives reviews online and set up an apt. Chris, one of the trainers, was extremely helpful, provided us with all the information we needed and listened to any concerns we had (especially when it came time for the prong collar – sorry about that, Chris! haha) Cooper did the potty training and the 10 day adult training and both programs helped tremendously, especially when it comes time... read more

  • I was so impressed with Dog Training Now, both how professional they were, as well as how much they truly cared for our pup. We knew they were awesome trainers because not only did we see a change in temperament from the first day, they also take the time to train the owners too. You can tell they genuinely care about the animals, and the owners being able to maintain the training they provide in a loving environment.

    Chris and the entire DTN trainers and staff were outstanding. The treated Wiley as if he was their own. Our one year old pup is strong and energetic. He now has improved behavior and self control. It was well worth the time and money.

  • We are expecting a baby soon and wanted to take our puppy Everett to learn some basic obedience skills before baby arrives. They went above and beyond our expectations and we are even more excited of our little one's arrival knowing that Everett is so well behaved and ready for the change thanks to all of the trainers at Dog Training Now, especially Marcus!

    Amazing job! After the first day my puppy (Belle) was asking to go out for potty. After the first week, she was potty trained, no accident after that. It's really affordable and the people working in this place are really good. I recommand this place, even if you don't have a pet and just want to talk to some real nice people.

    Love, love, love this place! My Lily did so well here and every single one of the trainers is amazing. Marcus, Matt & Chris always make you feel welcome - always willing to help with any questions and they love what they do because it shows.

    Lily just went for 2 week refresher during the holidays & I couldn’t be more pleased with how well they take care of her and how well behaved she has become. I would recommend to anyone with a dog - these guys are the BEST!

  • Dog Training Now was an absolute blessing for my Jack Russel/Whippet Terrier mix, Bo Bo! We were in over our heads with a dog that would bolt out any open door and run through busy streets, and he was impossible to catch. He didn't listen to us and had horrible leash manners, despite months of training at a different facility and our own attempts to train him. We were at a complete loss. After the 2-week Day Camp program, we now have a dog that is still just as cuddly, energetic, and playful as before, BUT we have complete control... read more

    We absolutely LOVE Dog Training Now! They are kind, professional, and a wonderful resource and training facility. Our dog has received so many compliments on his training and listening since attending the 10 day training program. He recently brushed up his skills at a three day intensive and was so excited to be back with the trainers. I look forward to being able to sign him up for another course!

  • I've used Dog Training Now for my 3 dogs and each time was a different, amazing experience. All dogs have different strengths and struggles and they nailed them all. The trainers are all fantastic, you feel like they're family once you're done and can always go back to them with questions and advise. My dogs love to go back to visit and feel like they're at home. I recommend them all the time.

    DTN has been a lifesaver for my rescue. They took my scared, anxious pup and helped us both with training! The best part is that they love your dog like their own. After training was over, I’ve been able to bring him for day visits. I was recently out of town and boarded him with Zach. He was so well cared for! All the trainers are the best, Marcus, Matt, Chris... My dog, is calm, settled, has a purpose, well behaved and most of all HAPPY. I trust them so much with a... read more

    I can't say enough wonderful things about Dog Training Now. Marcus was phenomenal during the evaluation and all the guys & girls were terrific with London. They saved my sanity and helped me have a well-behaved, well-mannered dog. Would highly recommend them.

    5 star ratingOur two rescue dogs did the 10 day boot camp.  It was a amazing to see the difference from day 1.  I cannot recommend dog training now enough.  They not only trained the dogs but us the owners on how to work with them and give them the commands they need to be successful.

Testimonials

"I used to dread taking my dog for long walks (or anywhere that we were likely to encounter people/other dogs), because she was so aggressive and excitable. I had bruises and scratches from holding her back! After the two week program here, though, we can go to forest preserves, parks– whatever! My rambunctious boxer will now stay, come, sit, lay down, and walk next to me on a leash. She even makes out with the collie next door now. The difference is huge! Another plus is that because the trainers give you lots of advice and tips, I’m better able to train my dog too! I had tried teaching her stuff before (like sit, shake, wait until I say “okay” to eat) without much success, but this week I used some techniques that Marcus and Nick told me about, and she picked up a couple extra tricks in no time. I’m very happy to have found this place, and my dog seemed to love it too! Every morning I started to ask, “Ready for school?” and there would be serious wiggle-butting."

Lindsey Pauley

"My Rottie Roxy did the 2 week training here and they were awesome. Judy, Marcus and Nick were so great and offered great advice and made me feel very comfortable if I ever needed to pop back in and ask a question. There is no doubt that they love all the dogs that come in. It totally shows in their training. I will be a walking billboard for Dog Training Now, couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. My 3 year old Boxer will be going in a couple of weeks. Thanks so much you guys! "

Patty Gotz

"Dog Training Now is truly an EXCELLENT Dog Training Facility. The transformation in my German Shepherd, Callie, was incredible. The staff love these dogs and it shows how much they love what they do. The price is reasonable and the results are simply amazing…no kidding!! They will continue to help you even after you graduate. They also offer several other programs which keeps us coming back time and time again. I HIGHLY recommend this facility. Seeing is believing and this place will not disappoint."

Lisa Stahly

"Dog training now helped my dog in so many ways. The ten day stay and learn program was unbelievable. Judy and Marcus are miracle workers. Great training at a fair price. They love what they do and it shows. Still going back for follow up training."

Matthew Marc

"I received the best training for my two dogs that I have ever had at Dog Training Now. They've been pulling and barking for 6 1/2 years, but with Judy's reinforced positive behavior training in her studio about 4-5 times a day, it is now a pleasure to walk them!"
