What Distinguishes Our In-Person Dog
Training Programs From Other Trainers?

All programs are tailored to your needs. The descriptions are to give you an idea of what can be accomplished and in what time frame. In-person lessons are now held at Oz Park (the busiest park in Chicago) for real results in a real environment or at our facility (don’t worry, our training carries over in all environments). All consultations, training sessions, and Zooms are also filmed and uploaded to our YouTube for reference.

Pricing For 1 On 1 Training With Jesse At Oz Park Or At Our Facility

With Canine Perspective’s exponential growth over the past year, Jesse’s responsibilities have grown as well. His availability will be limited as of 5/1/22 and full In-Home Programs  with him are temporarily suspended. One-off lessons in-home with Jesse are still being offered as well as In-Home Programs with Elias.

The rates on this column will supersede any other rates for training or consultations with Jesse as we work on updating all sites to display the correct information. Consultations with Jesse are now $235 and are not credited towards training programs.

There is Service Up-charge of $50 to relocate a single lesson to an in-home. In-home lessons done for those outside of the city of Chicago will incur our in-home hourly rate for travel to and from the city as well as the cost of the lesson.

On-Leash Basic Obedience Training Program

$1,425 for 6 Verbal Instruction Private Lessons with Jesse at Oz Park or at our facility.

Canine Perspective’s basic dog obedience training covers the two absolutely essential commands: Heel and Come.

Heel teaches your dog to follow your moves and your direction – not the other way around! If you take one step, your dog takes one step. If you take three steps, your dog takes three steps. This level of focus is required out in the real world in our busy Chicago streets. Not to forget, your dog will automatically sit when you stop. All this is done in complete silence and without the need for treats, so there’s no need in carrying around food in your pockets anymore.

Come is the most important dog obedience command for your dog to know. Why? Because it can save your dog’s life! Running toward the street? No problem! Calling your dog away from his/her friends at the dog park? No problem!

The Video Below Shows How Effective Jesse’s Methods Are With 1 On 1 Verbal Instruction Training Sessions Held At Oz Park Or Canine Perspective’s Facility.

Chasing after a squirrel? No problem! Your dog will respond to your command no matter the situation! I also incorporate an implied Stay command so your pooch will not leave your side to try and rejoin their friends and play after being called.

The basic obedience training program includes six private Verbal Instruction lessons over 6 weeks. Due to COVID lessons are being held at Oz Park or at our Logan Square facility.

Today is (probably) Luna’s fourth birthday. She was homeless so who knows.
Most of you know my story so I wanted to take her birthday as an opportunity to share why this reactive dog is the best thing that ever happened to me.
Of course because of her behavioral issues, Luna led me to Jesse and for that I can’t be more grateful. But she (and he) has taught me so very much along the way.
I grew up with easy, wonderful Golden Retrievers. I wouldn’t trade my experiences with them for anything. But Luna will always be different because of the training we went through together.
While Luna absolutely needed and continues to need her e-collar to curb her reactivity and help cope with the world around her, I wish my last dog had also achieved this level of training because of the bond it creates.
One of the most frequent questions Jesse always gets is whether the collar will make their dog fearful, not as loving, etc. etc. and I’m sure he’ll give trainer reasons why that’s bogus but my take is that it makes your dog MORE loving and loyal. As a dog momma I can say that my bond with Luna is unlike anything else because I’m her leader and her mother. My last dog Indy made good choices 90% of the time but that 10% was always a risk. And she was happy with anyone. She didn’t have enough training to look to me as her pack leader.
Luna needs me. As a companion. As a leader. As a snuggle buddy. As an assistant squirrel hunter. All of the above.
Knowing who is in charge in our relationship makes it even stronger which is why I’m so thankful for her training. And why no matter how “good” of a dog I ever get down the road, Jesse will always train it so we can have this level of bond. Deeper obedience to me just means more fun which means so much more love.

Rather than post to our stories, I thought I’d share Maple and Mookie’s walk to the feed today. It’s their first super long boarding stay with us so mom and dad treated them to some walks while they’re here!
What’s your favorite thing about owning a dog? I have two:
I love walking and being outside in general.
But you can’t beat having on hand garbage disposals slash composters to help out in the kitchen 😂

This is just a Cricket appreciation post!
This good boy is about a week into his Board and Train and if you’ve been following along in our stories, you know he’s crushing it!
Cricket is also really enjoying this new weather for his training walks. He’d like to remind everyone complaining about summer being officially gone in Chicago that your Ugg boots and PSL go great with extra walkies with your best furry pal!

“Jesse is the best! He has been so helpful with now two of our dogs. The first was a bulldog and he has helped so much with overall obedience and her dog aggression. I had to stop bringing her to work and couldn’t go to dog parks anymore, after a few sessions she was already so much better and can now come with me everywhere!! We also rescued a dog and he helped so much with assessing his personality and helping him settle in nicely. No matter what the issue, Jesse can help and has so much knowledge!”

Advance Dog Obedience Training Program

$2,025 for 9 Verbal Instruction Private Lessons with Jesse at Oz Park or at our Facility.

This program takes your canine counterpart’s obedience training to the next level by adding duration work.

Want to take your dog out to a restaurant with a patio, but don’t like having to keep pulling them back to your side? Have you ever run into a friend of yours in the street and stopped to have a conversation, only to have your dog randomly pull you in order to greet another dog?

Addressing those issues is no problem in the intermediate obedience training program, where we incorporate a Sit/Stay command and a Down/Stay command so that you can go to a patio for hours.

Once they’ve mastered those commands, your dog won’t move.

The advanced obedience training program includes nine private Verbal Instruction lessons over 9 weeks.

*All programs require the purchase of an e-collar that is appropriate for your dog’s temperament and size, because remote training is the most reliable, fast, effective and simple method of dog training. Just check out our Yelp, Facebook and Thumbtack reviews and the video below to see for yourself. All dogs are on an electronic collar.*
