Does your puppy seem a bit offAnti-Social? Showing signs of AGGRESSION?

It is much easier to rehabilitate a puppy at 4 months than a dog who’s been fearful, anxious, anti-social and/or aggressive for years! Adopting a cute little puppy puts many people in over their heads with potty and behavior problems. It is not uncommon for a puppy to be born with behavior issues, and – in rare cases – severe aggression. If you suspect your puppy has issues, don’t hesitate to address the problem NOW!

We offer three types of training services based on the age of your puppy. You can read about each class below or scroll down for pricing.

Training Classes for Puppies Under 6 Months Old

Our 6-week puppy training behavior classes cover common mistakes Pet Parents make when bringing home their little one. With puppy training classes, you are on your way to being stress-free in no time!

Many problems families experience when their puppy is an adult stem from misinterpreting these behaviors when growing up. Play biting on your shoelaces and fingers is cute when you have a 10-pound German Shepherd puppy, but wait until it grows up to be 100 pounds and is still biting your fingers! In other words, don’t hesitate to start your puppy up on the right paw!

These training classes are for puppies under 6 months and cover potty/crate training, the do’s and don’ts of raising a puppy and teaching basic commands – sit, down, come and heel – using food.

Six 45-minute to an hour long lessons over 6 weeks.

*E-Mail Maria at Maria@CaninePerspectiveChicago.com to see if Canine Perspective’s resident Puppy Expert, Maddie, has availability to enroll your puppy in private classes.

Private Classes are now being held at our new facility in Logan Square.

Chicago, IL 60647

Due to overwhelming demand Private In-Home training is currently not being offered for puppies under 6 months.

Training Classes for Puppies Between 6 Months & 1 Year Old

I consider the 6-month mark to be equal to the terrible twos stage in toddlers because this is when puppies begin to shift to an adult mindset. Therefore, at this age, I introduce pressure concepts and pair it with clicker training, giving a balance of positive and negative.

We cover the basic obedience commands sit, down, come and heel through leash work using a prong collar, remote-collar, and/or clicker training.

Six 1-hour long lessons over 6 weeks.

Puppy Behavior Modification Classes

This program is intended for puppies that are displaying signs of aggression. Puppy biting through play or puppies just being puppies doesn’t qualify as aggression. If your puppy is barking and lunging at guests, other dogs, and people out on a walk then there is a possibility your puppy is showing signs of actual aggression. Jesse will determine whether or not your puppy is displaying legitimate aggression. The cost is determined based on the severity of behavior and length of time to rehabilitate your pet and does NOT include a training collar that must be purchased separately. During an evaluation, Jesse will inform you about which program you will need and which collar you will need.

You will receive your quote during the evaluation. Puppy Behavior Modification classes start at $3,000 and is priced according to the severity of your puppy’s behavior.

We achieve long-lasting results in every case. Contact Maria today to set up your consultation!

“Our girl Roxie, just adores Jesse and his gang! Jesse treats her like one of his own…Jesse was her trainer as a puppy and she is totally obedient and well trained. I recommend Canine Perspective for anyone with a new puppy or a rescue that may have obedience or training issues. Jesse is our Dog Whisperer!”
