Post Looking for training in Chicago, IL

Hello everyone!

I am welcoming my pup in May and he will be 12 weeks old! He has been getting the puppy basics from his breeder (crate training, house breaking, socialization, basic obedience, leash behavior). He is doing great, but once he comes home, I would love to continue his training!

I would greatly appreciate any recommendations for training facilities to take my pup to! I am looking more at programs offering obedience training and potentially a Canine Good Citizen (CGC) program as he ages. Have not considered other avenues, but I am open to them.

I have come across My Bodyguard GSD (feedback would be great), but was wondering if there were other programs available that some of you might be familiar with.

Thank you for your time!

Looking forward to your suggestions!

Hello!

I am willing to go up to an hour out of Chicago if the suggested trainer is known to do well, with positive reinforcement methods!

My pup will be 12 weeks, so anything that is appropriate would be great!
