About Dog Den and our approach to training
Our Dog Den training staff includes co-owners Alexa, Alex, and Alana.
Alex and Alexa are sibling dog trainers who later met Alana at a training facility they were all attending. All three soon learned that they possessed the same passion and philosophy on dog training and quickly became friends.
After trying different training styles, they all came to agree that balanced training is the most effective and beneficial training method for dogs and owners. Issues such as stubbornness, bad manners, reactivity, and excessive leash pulling can arise from seemingly sweet puppies that were raised incorrectly (which the three of them found out the hard way). Alexa, Alex, and Alana strive to give people the tools to help raise their puppies to be confident well-trained companions and their older dogs to be the best dogs they can be. Old dogs CAN learn new tricks.
Train. Stay. Play.
Dog Den Chicago bases its methods on the philosophy of balanced training. We believe the best way for a dog to learn, regardless of breed or age, is through this approach. While working with Dog Den, we are dedicated to providing a safe and comfortable environment for every dog and owner. Our goal to ensure that owners always feel confident about their dog's behavior, whether going outside places or having house-guests visit their home.
