Animal SheltersAfter you’ve chosen your dog at one of the Chicago Animal Shelters, you’ll want to get him trained as soon as possible. To help you in this process, we’ve created a guide for dog training in Chicago. There are a number of options regarding training your dog. Some dog owners will enroll their new pet in a group class at a local park or pet store. Others will hire a professional dog trainer to train their dog. This option, however, can be expensive for most people. We recommend you train the dog yourself as you will find it to be extremely satisfying … for both of you. You’ll build a bond between you that will last a lifetime. Choosing who and how you want your dog trained is an important decision, as it can affect your relationship with your dog over his entire life.One of the most rewarding things you can do with a new rescue is train your dog at home. Both of you will feel comfortable in a home-setting environment and it’ll save you a lot of money. Also, as mentioned, it’ll be more fun for both of you. Here’s the thing, you’re going to end up training the dog yourself in the long run anyway over the lifetime you spend with your dog, so why not start out training him from the beginning. To help you in the training process, we have a number of instructional online dog training videos that are affordable and easy-to-implement.
