Bringing home your new four-legged friend will likely be one of the best days of your life. But as exciting as this is, it may also be intimidating, especially if you have never owned a dog before. Thanks to our obedience training in Chicago, even the worst-behaved dogs will leave our trainers a completely different dog, in the best way possible! Here are some signs your dog could benefit from our services that will have both of you wagging your tails.

Over-Aggression

If your dog continuously shows aggression either toward other dogs or toward humans, this is a red flag that our obedience training in Chicago is necessary. Examples of aggression include growling, barking, biting and unexpectedly chasing after humans or other animals. At the end of the day, you want to be able to trust your dog in social situations as well as while relaxing at home.

Jumping

How many times have you gone up to greet a dog only to be jumped on? As much as you don’t mind this, it isn’t how a dog should be behaving. You don’t want your dog to go out in public and jump on strangers. We can help train your dog how to greet people the right way.

Ignoring You When They’re Called

When you call your dog’s name, they should be well-trained enough to come on the first command. If this is not the case, contact our dog obedience trainers in Chicago for help!

Leash Pulling

When you take your dog for a walk, is it as if the dog is walking you? Leash pulling is a common behavior that many dogs excitedly exhibit. However, this is a warning sign of bad behavior. Dogs should be well-trained enough to stay by your side on a walk without straying too far ahead.

Let your dog reach his or her full potential through our obedience training in Chicago! Contact Chicago Canine Academy to get started.
