Because we are Dog Parents like you, we know how important your bond with you dog is. That’s why we have created Dog Training Programs to help better your communications.  If you sign up for any of our training programs, the results will be a well-behaved dog or puppy. These include:  


For dog owners in the Chicagoland area, get a thorough assessment of your dog’s or puppy's behavior and training needs with a 2-hour in-home Private Consultation with the Wolfkeeper. At the end of the consultation, Toriano will provide you with a list of 15-20 action items – either training priorities or environmental changes you can make at home – to help modify your dog or puppy’s behavior.  In addition, you'll know what training programs makes the most sense for your puppy or dog. The cost of the Private Assessment is $250.

We will cover the following:

·      Evaluate the household dynamics

·      Listen to what you want to change about your dog

·      Evaluate Dog or Puppies training capabilities

·      Discuss basic manners

·      Socialization with people mad other dogs

·      Relationship forming games

·      Exercise techniques

Fee: $250 

Note: $100 deposit due to secure time and balance due the day of meeting. Consultation fee can be applied towards other training services.
