  • 5 star ratingMy dog, Benny, received AWESOME training from Dog Training Now. He was a little skeptical when we first got there (because he's a bit shy), but by the end of the two week day-training course, he was wagging his tail and excited to go to class . The employees were very friendly and answered any and all questions I had, and I will definitely be using their "refresher" courses in the future because Benny loved it there so much! I highly recommend this company and their 2-week day training program!

    I left my rescue, Kaylee, with DTN for not only puppy day-care but also her first overnight away from me. I was glad knowing she was going home with someone she already knew - while she was so happy to see me, the pics showed she had a great time! Thank you!

    A great place for dog training! I had my Shepherd mix dog there for the 20-Day Day Training, and the results was amazing! My dog doesn't pull on the leash anymore and great off leash too.

    Everyone there are so nice, very helpful and great trainers. A great and welcoming environment for you and your dog. Allison worked with my dog the most. She is very good teacher, and explained very well of what they went over and answered any questions I had.

    Overall, I highly recommend this place!

    Dog Training Now gave our adopted border collie puppy a strong foundation with fundamental obedience commands via their 10 day training program (we opted not to board our dog - they have the option though!). Findlay eagerly wagged his tail when we dropped him off, their team is extremely knowledgeable, patient with our many questions, and caring. Highly recommend this training facility that becomes more than just a training facility, they become a second family. We will certainly be looking into continuing future training there.

    5 star ratingI used dog training now months ago for my adopted dog Rizzo and the 4 week intensive training. As a large puppy, he was a handful and DTN gave me the tools and resources to tighten up his behaviors. He did not come out of his 4 week training perfect, because it takes a lot of work beyond training to get any dog to be pristine, but they laid a solid foundation for his growth. Even more so, when I board him, I've had such a wonderful experience with Kellie who is his second mama. She welcomes him in with... read more

    Amy and the DTN team had our 5 YO hound rescue Jackson for the two week board and train and taught him the basic obedience commands. We were very impressed in what they'd accomplished in just two short weeks. Their methods are effective without being harsh to the dog like I've seen at some other training places. Highly recommended. When we picked him up on graduation day, Dan spent 2.5 hours with us going over what Jackson had learned. Highly recommended!

    My pup, Thor, just graduated from his 2 week class. Today I had the pizza man deliver to us and told my dog to wait as I saw the driver pull into the driveway. My dog patiently waited. The delivery man commented on how well trained my dog was, he could not beleive he was still a pup and that he listened so well! I owe it all to DTN! They are amazing there and I cant wait to go through their off leash program!

    We brought our dog, Rhu, to Dog Training Now for the ten day training to help us with her rambunctious puppy behavior. We couldn’t be happier with the results.

    From the very first day we saw significant improvement with regards to behavior on leash, as well as with jumping. And as they incorporated more skills, we continued to see the improvements.

    I work as a veterinarian and the reason we ended up at Dog Training Now was based on all of the positive feedback I had heard from clients. Moving forward, I will definitely be recommending their services to clients... read more

    Highly recommend Dog Training Now. I have a one year old Aussie/Jack Russell mix and as loving and sweet as she is - she was also a handful to say the least. After training with Kellie, we are now able to take her out with us. I wanted to be able to take her to horse shows but she was so unmanageable I stopped after our first attempt. Now she is more than able to attend with us and enjoy the time outside. She was well behaved enough to enter the ring herself! — in Roscoe, Illinois.

Our puppy really responded to the lessons they taught her and they always gave her lots of praise and affection. The staff were so great about reviewing the skills with us and gave us all the tools we need to continue training. They are a caring group who really love dogs and what they do.

  • Dog training now did such a good job with our 2 year old chihuahua pup, Milo. Milo was a shelter rescue who had a lot of traumatic past and we thought he’d never be able to get over it. Our trainer was danny and he took care of Milo like one of his own dogs. When we picked up Milo after the 12 day board and train program, we couldn’t believe it was the same dog.

    Nevertheless, we’ll be going back again.

    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.

Melissa and Dan were very friendly and always were open for any... read more

    5 star ratingIt is my first time having a doggie that will weigh more than 15 pounds.  In fact, my Huskidore (Husky/Laborador) puppy will probably be more than 50 lbs.  After adopting, I started to have concerns on potty training and behaviors that cannot be ignored with a larger dog.  I am so glad I found Dog Training Now.  After enrolling my puppy in the Puppy Day Camp, he has great potty habits and I can see that he really enjoys the day camp and all the human and puppy friends.  Everyday when we pull into the parking lot of the studio,... read more

    I’m so happy I chose the right place to train my 8 month old puppy! DTN has overall been an amazing experience for my puppy and my family. I chose the 10 day day training and couldn’t be happier with my experience at DTN! Every night when I came to pick up Kona, each and every trainer I met with was so thorough in explaining exactly what Kona learned that day. Kona can be quite stubborn and I was shocked with the results on how much she has grown since coming to DTN. I can’t thank DTN enough for helping... read more

  • Dog Training Now is the best decision I could have made for my dog, Daphne. She has always been very smart, but that got her into trouble! From day one at Dog Training Now, I could see a difference. The trainers are incredibly patient, kind, and intelligent. I always felt like Daphne was in great hands. At the end of every school day, they taught me the skills she learned and how to practice at home. They’re great with teaching you how a dog’s brain works as well. It helped me gain understanding for how she’s processing the lessons and... read more

    5 star ratingI have a 18month Miniature Schnauzer who thinks he's a German Shepherd when it comes to barking. He's very shy and nervous around strangers and has a very very hard time walking on the leash. It's probably my fault that he's this way since I didn't socialize him early enough. I was going on vacation with my family and decided to send him to boot camp. I live in South Loop Chicago and trust me when I say I have researched a lot of locations, none of them really fit our needs. Finally, I stumbled upon Dog Training Now and... read more

  • Our Bella is a sweetheart and full of energy but she was very wild. We couldn’t get her to stop jumping on people, and i struggled with her on walks. Two days into training and she was a completely different dog. She completed the 10 day training and now looks at me on walks and follows commands very nicely. The trainers are all very nice and knowledgeable. They truly care about the dogs and take good care of them. Thank you Dog Training Now !

    Dog training now is an amazing place! We did the 10 day training and my dog went from being naughty and hard to train to being so knowledgeable and sweet. Would definitely recommend!

    I brought my incredibly wild and never listening-German Sheherd puppy here. I was hopeful after seeing the reviews but did not anticipate the incredible change in behavior I would see. My dog, Elli, was a different dog after training here. She can be a little difficult at times and just not listen but she learned all of the commands so quickly and the staff was great in demonstrating to me how to give her commands and correct her so that she would learn the behavior needed everywhere, not just at school. I am so incredibly pleased with the service. The... read more

    I highly recommend Dog Trainjng Now. My Cj is a 8 month old who NEVER listened when given commands and was VERY stubborn. It’s safe to say that after his 10 day training he is a completely different dog. He learned so many good tricks that will not only help him out but me as well. I appreciate all the trainers so much!

His name is often confused with the Stanley cup. But no thats not it, haha. We are actually really big fans of the show The Office. And we thought he had Stanley Hudson's personality. Just Funny and Mellow alot of the time.

When Miriam met Gus, a young shepherd mix around the age of 1, at Animal House Shelter in Huntley, she knew that he was the one. One more visit to the shelter for her boyfriend to meet Gus sealed the deal. Gus became a part of the family.

Jacey had been waiting to get a dog for a long time. After all, she grew up with dogs throughout her childhood. When she finally found a rescue puppy, she hopped in her car to drive to Indiana to meet an 8 week old yellow lab named Scarlett. Since that trip, Scarlett and Jacey have been inseparable.

You don’t have to speak to Mel very long to realize that he has a heart for people, and for his dogs. In the last few years, Mel found himself losing his beloved beagles, his loving rescue dog named Radar, and his mom. He was in the valley, struggling to find the happiness that he usually naturally exudes. “The next thing I knew, I was on a rescue website,” recalls Mel. Even though he and his partner had decided to not get a new dog for awhile, Mel couldn’t resist once he found a part shepherd, part collie online.

When Becky and her fiancée strolled into a shelter to adopt a dog two years ago, they couldn’t help but choose Bobo. He was a nice size for their home, and 1 year old Bobo appeared calm, laid back, and ready to be the newest addition to the family. It only took a few weeks for Becky to fall in love with Bobo, and for Bobo to show his true colors.
