Group Classes
Because we believe individual attention is critical to insuring the success of our clients, we keep our class sizes very small. Group classes are an economical way for you to learn the tools you will need in order to successfully train your puppy or dog - especially if your new addition has had no basic formal training in the past. Group classes teach you, the owner, everything you need to know in order to lay the foundation for basic training and insure a happy future together. Affinity Dog Training, inc makes sure you gain those tools in a safe, friendly, and supportive atmosphere. Classes are currently being offered at 1944 Gyorr Ave. In South Elgin IL.
Affinity Dog Training is offering the following classes:
  • Puppy Kindergarten: Meets for 1 hour, once a week, for 7 weeks
Our Puppy Kindergarten is designed for puppies between 8 and 18 weeks of age at the start of classes and is limited to no more than 6 puppies per group. It is our hope that all puppies are registered for class by the time they are 12 weeks of age. This gives us ample time for socialization opportunities, as well as laying the foundation for problem prevention and correction. In this class we address all your common puppy behavior concerns; biting, mouthing, chewing, housetraining, crating, jumping on people and much more. Basic Obedience Cues are introduced in this session.
  • Foundations Class: Meets for 1 hour, once a week, for 7 weeks 

Our foundations class is designed for puppies and dogs 5 months of age and older and is limited to no more than 6 dogs per group. This class is generally for dogs that have had no prior formal obedience training. Concentration in this class is on teaching your dog to focus and have impulse control. All the tools for teaching the basic behaviors of SIT, DOWN, STAND, COME, STAY, OFF/LEAVE IT and WALKING without pulling are taught. In this class we also address common adolescent behavior concerns like jumping on people, "hyper" activity, and more.
