Who says you can’t teach an old(er) dog new tricks? Training is for dogs of all ages! Our day school program is a daylong school where your dog, aged 7 months or older, will learn basic obedience, enjoy playtime and socialize with other dogs. Day school is recommended for young dogs that have no prior obedience skills, or older dogs that need a refresher course on their basic skills. Dog Den Chicago only accepts 5 training prospects at one time to allocate the most attention and time to each dog in our care. Because of this, we recommend reserving a training program ahead of when you want your dog to visit with us.
