Training & Agility

We offer on-site dog obedience training, dog agility, and nosework classes through Advances in Animal Behavior. Since 1995, the Advances in Animal Behavior team has been helping Chicagoland dog lovers train their pets. They offer both private lessons and group classes, as well as board and train. Their positive reinforcement methods help create a dog that listens and that also enjoys training. Whether you need private lessons, behavior problem solving, puppy classes, obedience classes or sports classes they can help. Class schedules may be found at

Board & Train

We offer Board & Train tailored to your pet’s individual needs. Whether your pet needs to learn a new skill or practice an old one, their stay with us is the perfect opportunity for training with our on-site expert. Training while boarding also provides mental stimulation and additional exercise. We offer training sessions from 30 minutes to 60 minutes. Please contact Advances in Animal Behavior, (708) 636-1998, if you have further questions about training while boarding.
