Welcome to Two Paws Up Dog Training!

Not all dog training is created equal! Many “trainers” still use out-dated techniques and devices in the name of “training”. These aversive and punishment-based techniques do more harm than good to your dog and your relationship. Here at Two Paws Up, we believe in teaching the dog vs. correcting the dog.

Dogs do not come home knowing how we want them to behave in a household setting. We have to teach them everything from where to go potty to how to walk on a leash and not rush out the door the second it is opened up. All of these things take time and commitment as well as proper tools and techniques. That is where we come in!  Our training is family friendly and allows the entire family to bond with and train the dog.

Our team consistes of more than just “trainers”. We are all experienced in dog body language & behavior. There is a big difference in just training and addressing behavior challenges!

We offer group classes, private lessons and drop-off training options at our 26,000 sqft air-conditioned facility with a 1/2 acre fenced in outdoor training area. We also do in-home lessons at your house all accross Lake County, IL.
