Dog Training Programs at Alden's Kennels

A well-mannered pet brings their owners many benefits to health, happiness, and stress-release. But what do you do when your canine companion is the cause of your stress? Whether it’s a piranha-mouthed puppy that still needs to learn not to bite, or an older dog that has developed some unwanted behavioral quirks, most pets could benefit from more obedience training. Professional obedience training reduces the stress of pet ownership and promotes a stronger relationship between the dog their family.

Teaching your best friend can be a stressful and frustrating experience. At our professional dog training center in McHenry County, Illinois we want to reduce the stress with our easy to follow instruction programs.

We offer a wide variety of programs because we realize that each individual’s needs are different. That goes for both for the owners and the dogs. Our various professional programs are tailored to the needs of you and your best friend. Currently, we are offering a range of private courses, group training, and boarding programs.

Professional Dog Obedience Classes in Illinois for Any Experience Level

The absolute best time to begin professional pet training is when your puppy is between 8-12 weeks old. This is an impressionable time when the dog hasn’t learned or developed any bad habits. Unfortunately, most owners wait until their best friend is far past this stage. At Alden’s Kennels’ center for pet training in Ringwood IL, we advise you start obedience instruction for your pet as early as you can.

But we also know that old dogs can learn new tricks! Our professional dog trainers are ready to work with any behavior or skill level. We offer a free evaluation, where we can diagnose your dog’s level of obedience and address specific problems. Our classes are suitable for all skill levels.

Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced instruction classes will help your pet become a well-mannered, non-intrusive part of the family. In these classes, your pet will be taught using positive reinforcement. Our expert trainers will also teach you the necessary skills to maintain their obedience and how to help your puppy or adult dog become a well-socialized canine citizen and family member.

Dog Training in Northern Illinois that Works With Your Schedule

Our center for pet training realizes that balancing a busy schedule and trying to train a dog can be exhausting and overwhelming. That is why we have created a unique boarding instruction program. With this program, your pet stays at our facility while receiving a professional two-week behavioral instruction course. After the first week, our staff will send you a video so you can see your pet’s progress. At the end of the two weeks, before your dog goes home with you, we have a special lesson where you will learn how to maintain the training your dog has received during its stay with us.

In all of our pet training programs, our main goal is to give owners the tools to help their dog keep up positive skills and behaviors. To achieve this, the focus is not just on teaching the dogs. We also instruct the owners on how to implement an effective pet obedience program at home after leaving.
