Check out Indian Creek SchH club, its in Marengo, so may be a trek, but they do tracking, and obedience there. You dont have to participate in bitework. Also they do private and group lessons I believe. I am in the Northern suburbs and drive out there when I can.

|SDG||Thank you for your replies. Yes, two of those are in the city. Hubby went to school downtown years ago and now avoids it at all costs. It would not be a pleasant experience for him to have to drive there weekly. Me...I'd love a condo in the city for the weekends! Why oh why do opposites attract?|

Looking for a trainer in the Chicago suburbs
We are looking to find a trainer or training club in the Chicago suburbs. Western burbs preferred, but North or South would work also. Hubby does not want to go into the city, either.
Not certain about competitive IPO type training, but would be open to a club that did the obedience and tracking portions of IPO, as our girl may not enjoy the bite work.
Our puppy is 5 months old and just about finished with puppy kindergarten. We are looking for trainers/clubs that use positive methods....and that are kindly disposed to owners that are more comfortable with a warm and fuzzy environment
Thanks for your thoughts....
