Does your dog growl or even snap at other dogs while on leash? If so, you probably already know how challenging it can be to work on training - in order to build tolerance towards other dogs, you need to be around them, and this can make the problem worse. That's why the leash reactivity course is so great! You can practice being around other dogs, in a very controlled environment where all the participants are in the same situation.

In Leash Reactivity 1, we use large barriers that keep the dogs hidden from each other until they are brought out for various exercises, usually no more than one or two at a time in the beginning. The exercises are geared towards desensitizing dogs towards each other, such as seeing them from a distance, and from the use of props. By the end of the 6-week course, many of the dogs can pass each other and are much lower on the reactivity scale.

We also give you home exercises, so you can keep practicing in between sessions.

The room is spacious, so the dogs have plenty of room to spread out. The class size is small, so it is not overwhelming to the dogs. In addition, the trainer is highly expererienced in helping dogs with reactivity issues. No dogs are ever allowed off leash during this course.

Please note that this class is for dogs who are reactive towards other dogs. We understand that some dogs don't react well towards humans either. We do take precautions to avoid any bites, including ensuring that the other people in the class don't get too close to your dog. The trainer may walk up to you from time-to-time, at a safe distance.

Here's what typically happens.

You get a puppy, and think to yourself, "How hard can this be? My puppy will be perfect and doesn't need training! Besides, he's already good at sitting."

At first, he's so darn cute that you don't mind that he's jumping on people or nipping your fingers. Then he starts growing. The jumping gets worse, and now he's pulling you down the street when you go for a walk. He gets separation anxiety when you leave him alone, is starting to growl at other dogs, and you saw him eat poop at the dog park. No more licking your face!


Uh-oh. This is harder than you thought, and this is only the beginning. You're not exactly sure what to do about it, and you certainly don't want to deal with these issues for the next fifteen years!

The bottom line is that you just need to know what to do, in clear, simple steps. You've already discovered that books, websites, and talking with friends or family aren't getting you very far. That's where training class comes in.

Most people believe that puppy class is about teaching their dog to sit and stay. Because their dog may already be good at sitting and staying, they may decide against it (never mind the fact that the dog will only sit when there's a treat present and with no distractions!).

Tucker Pup's training courses are designed differently than that. Instead of simply "training your dog," we believe in teaching the owners on how to properly handle their dogs and guide their behavior in a positive way.

This course covers the following topics:
  • Loose-leash walking (walking politely at your side, without pulling)
  • Listening to you the first time, without repeating yourself
  • Leaving something alone, and walking away from something
  • Keeping four on the floor and not on your guests, the counter, or your furniture
  • Coming directly to you when called, even when highly distracted
  • Greeting new people or other dogs nicely, including on walks
  • Sitting, staying, lying down, giving eye contact
  • Going to a place in your home, such as a mat, to await further instruction
  • Crate training
  • Accepting people handling him, such as touching his paws, clipping his nails, getting groomed, etc.
  • Socialization and playing nicely with other dogs
  • Playing fun games and exercises with you
  • We also discuss play-biting and other puppy-specific challenges

Even if your puppy may not be exhibiting problems with these behaviors at the moment, chances are you will run into some of them (or similar ones) over the course of time. This class will teach you how to prevent them occurring to begin with, and stop them if they start.


The critical time for a dog's learning is before the age of 4.5 months. After that, these "challenging" behaviors become harder to eliminate. The Puppy Manners course is designed to start your puppy off on the right foot so he doesn't need to "unlearn" things later on. This will set the tone for having a wonderful, positive relationship with your dog for many years to come.

Want to help your puppy become socialized, but are uncomfortable with going to the dog park? This is a common concern because dog parks can have unvaccinated dogs, people may not be paying attention, there are different sizes of dogs and levels of aggression, and the dog park may not be as clean as you would prefer.

Why Tucker Pup's puppy socials are so great:
  • Supervised by one of our trainers, while you watch and participate
  • Off-leash play, plus games and exercises
  • We confirm that all dogs are properly vaccinated
  • The room is kept very clean
  • The weather doesn't matter
  • Your puppy can play with others that are its same size

It's also fun to interact with other dog owners and make some new friends in the neighborhood!

We recommend signing up for 3-4 puppy socials in order to help your puppy become highly socialized and as highly prepared as possible for dog parks, daycare, boarding, the beach, and much more.

This is a four-week mini-course that happens outdoors. We work on leash walking in real-life situations, including on sidewalks, at the park, under the el tracks, and past other dogs. The course addresses loose leash walking, jumping on people or dogs that you pass, and dealing with strange noises. This course does not address leash reactivity - this is covered in private lessons.

By conducting the course in the outdoors, we can more easily simulate real-world scenarios, noises, and distractions that you many encounter.

We meet at different locations in the West Loop - each course and date is slightly different. Each week, we will inform you each week of where we will be meeting. If a day is rained out, we will improvise, including going inside a store.

Please note that this class is not intended for overly reactive dogs who may exhibit overly aggressive behavior when passing other dogs or people. If you are wondering whether this is the right course for your dog, please contact our trainer - you may need private lessons, which we can provide.

Does your dog growl or even snap at other dogs while on leash? If so, you probably already know how challenging it can be to work on training - in order to build tolerance towards other dogs, you need to be around them, and this can make the problem worse. That's why the leash reactivity course is so great! You can practice being around other dogs, in a very controlled environment where all the participants are in the same situation.

In Leash Reactivity 1, we use large barriers that keep the dogs hidden from each other until they are brought out for various exercises, usually no more than one or two at a time in the beginning. The exercises are geared towards desensitizing dogs towards each other, such as seeing them from a distance, and from the use of props. By the end of the 6-week course, many of the dogs can pass each other and are much lower on the reactivity scale.

We also give you home exercises, so you can keep practicing in between sessions.

The room is spacious, so the dogs have plenty of room to spread out. The class size is small, so it is not overwhelming to the dogs. In addition, the trainer is highly expererienced in helping dogs with reactivity issues. No dogs are ever allowed off leash during this course.

Please note that this class is for dogs who are reactive towards other dogs. We understand that some dogs don't react well towards humans either. We do take precautions to avoid any bites, including ensuring that the other people in the class don't get too close to your dog.

Does your dog listen only half the time? Pull on the leash? Jump on people? Come to you when called? Leave items alone that are on the ground?

Having a dog that listens to you without fail is one of the greatest joys and can bring such peace into your life. Many people say "My dog doesn't need training because he knows how to sit pretty well." They don't know what they are missing! Your dog may be able to follow some basics in your house when there are no distractions and you have a treat in your hand, but what about all those life situations that make listening much harder? For example, what about when you're walking down the sidewalk and he spots a squirrel? When you're at the dog park and he jumps up on a small child? When you're at the beach and he runs away from you? What if you're outside and he runs toward the street and that oncoming car? When he approaches something on the floor that you don't want him to eat?


The primary purpose of the Adult Manners course is to teach your dog the fundamental skills so you can have her do what you want, on command without repeating yourself, time after time. In other words, we are trying to teach self-control across a variety of specific behaviors.

At first, he's so darn cute that you don't mind that he's jumping on people or nipping your fingers. Then he starts growing. The jumping gets worse, and now he's pulling you down the street when you go for a walk. He gets separation anxiety when you leave him alone, is starting to growl at other dogs, and you saw him eat poop at the dog park. No more licking your face!


Uh-oh. This is harder than you thought, and this is only the beginning. You're not exactly sure what to do about it, and you certainly don't want to deal with these issues for the next fifteen years!

The bottom line is that you just need to know what to do, in clear, simple steps. You've already discovered that books, websites, and talking with friends or family aren't getting you very far. That's where training class comes in.

Most people believe that puppy class is about teaching their dog to sit and stay. Because their dog may already be good at sitting and staying, they may decide against it (never mind the fact that the dog will only sit when there's a treat present and with no distractions!).

Tucker Pup's training courses are designed differently than that. Instead of simply "training your dog," we believe in teaching the owners on how to properly handle their dogs and guide their behavior in a positive way.

This course covers the following topics:
  • Loose-leash walking (walking politely at your side, without pulling)
  • Listening to you the first time, without repeating yourself
  • Leaving something alone, and walking away from something
  • Keeping four on the floor and not on your guests, the counter, or your furniture
  • Coming directly to you when called, even when highly distracted
  • Greeting new people or other dogs nicely, including on walks
  • Sitting, staying, lying down, giving eye contact
  • Going to a place in your home, such as a mat, to await further instruction
  • Crate training
  • Accepting people handling him, such as touching his paws, clipping his nails, getting groomed, etc.
  • Socialization and playing nicely with other dogs
  • Playing fun games and exercises with you
  • We also discuss play-biting and other puppy-specific challenges

Even if your puppy may not be exhibiting problems with these behaviors at the moment, chances are you will run into some of them (or similar ones) over the course of time. This class will teach you how to prevent them occurring to begin with, and stop them if they start.


The critical time for a dog's learning is before the age of 4.5 months. After that, these "challenging" behaviors become harder to eliminate. The Puppy Manners course is designed to start your puppy off on the right foot so he doesn't need to "unlearn" things later on. This will set the tone for having a wonderful, positive relationship with your dog for many years to come.

Want to help your puppy become socialized, but are uncomfortable with going to the dog park? This is a common concern because dog parks can have unvaccinated dogs, people may not be paying attention, there are different sizes of dogs and levels of aggression, and the dog park may not be as clean as you would prefer.

Why Tucker Pup's puppy socials are so great:
  • Supervised by one of our trainers, while you watch and participate
  • Off-leash play, plus games and exercises
  • We confirm that all dogs are properly vaccinated
  • The room is kept very clean
  • The weather doesn't matter
  • Your puppy can play with others that are its same size

It's also fun to interact with other dog owners and make some new friends in the neighborhood!

We recommend signing up for 3-4 puppy socials in order to help your puppy become highly socialized and as highly prepared as possible for dog parks, daycare, boarding, the beach, and much more.

Does your dog growl or even snap at other dogs while on leash? If so, you probably already know how challenging it can be to work on training - in order to build tolerance towards other dogs, you need to be around them, and this can make the problem worse. That's why the leash reactivity course is so great! You can practice being around other dogs, in a very controlled environment where all the participants are in the same situation.

In Leash Reactivity 1, we use large barriers that keep the dogs hidden from each other until they are brought out for various exercises, usually no more than one or two at a time in the beginning. The exercises are geared towards desensitizing dogs towards each other, such as seeing them from a distance, and from the use of props. By the end of the 6-week course, many of the dogs can pass each other and are much lower on the reactivity scale.

We also give you home exercises, so you can keep practicing in between sessions.

The room is spacious, so the dogs have plenty of room to spread out. The class size is small, so it is not overwhelming to the dogs. In addition, the trainer is highly expererienced in helping dogs with reactivity issues. No dogs are ever allowed off leash during this course.

Please note that this class is for dogs who are reactive towards other dogs. We understand that some dogs don't react well towards humans either. We do take precautions to avoid any bites, including ensuring that the other people in the class don't get too close to your dog. The trainer may walk up to you from time-to-time, at a safe distance.

If you have taken our Puppy or Adult Manners course, this is the perfect next step in order to help your dog reach its potential.

Now that your dog knows the basics, it's time to make all of the exercises much more challenging. We add the three D's (distance, duration and distractions) plus introduce some new commands in order help your dog build and keep its focus. The goal continues to be for your dog to do what you say the first time, without repeating yourself.

By the end of the course, your dog should be able to excel at many foundational behaviors, even under highly challenging circumstances.

Examples include:
  • Leave things alone unless given permission (even really tempting things, like a pile of treats)
  • Go to a place, such as a mat or crate
  • Stay for long period of time
  • Automatically go to your side when coming to you
  • Walk next to you politely (even without a leash)
  • Come to you from a highly distracting activity.

Don't just stop at one Manners course and think you're finished - take the next step and enroll in Intermediate Manners so your dog can continue to improve and learn crucial lifelong skills.

Does your dog listen only half the time? Pull on the leash? Jump on people? Come to you when called? Leave items alone that are on the ground?

Having a dog that listens to you without fail is one of the greatest joys and can bring such peace into your life. Many people say "My dog doesn't need training because he knows how to sit pretty well." They don't know what they are missing! Your dog may be able to follow some basics in your house when there are no distractions and you have a treat in your hand, but what about all those life situations that make listening much harder? For example, what about when you're walking down the sidewalk and he spots a squirrel? When you're at the dog park and he jumps up on a small child? When you're at the beach and he runs away from you? What if you're outside and he runs toward the street and that oncoming car? When he approaches something on the floor that you don't want him to eat?


The primary purpose of the Adult Manners course is to teach your dog the fundamental skills so you can have her do what you want, on command without repeating yourself, time after time. In other words, we are trying to teach self-control across a variety of specific behaviors.

Having a dog that listens to you without fail is one of the greatest joys and can bring such peace into your life. Many people say "My dog doesn't need training because he knows how to sit pretty well." They don't know what they are missing! Your dog may be able to follow some basics in your house when there are no distractions and you have a treat in your hand, but what about all those life situations that make listening much harder? For example, what about when you're walking down the sidewalk and he spots a squirrel? When you're at the dog park and he jumps up on a small child? When you're at the beach and he runs away from you? What if you're outside and he runs toward the street and that oncoming car? When he approaches something on the floor that you don't want him to eat?


The primary purpose of the Adult Manners course is to teach your dog the fundamental skills so you can have her do what you want, on command without repeating yourself, time after time. In other words, we are trying to teach self-control across a variety of specific behaviors.

Instead of simply "training your dog," we believe in teaching the owners on how to properly handle their dogs and guide their behavior in a positive way.

This course covers the following topics:
  • Listening to you the first time, without repeating yourself
  • Leaving something alone, and walking away from something
  • Loose-leash walking (walking politely at your side, without pulling)
  • Coming directly to you when called, even when highly distracted
  • Going to a place in your home, such as a mat, to await further instruction
  • Keeping four on the floor and not on your guests, the counter, or your furniture
  • Greeting new people or other dogs nicely, including on walks
  • Sitting, staying, lying down, giving eye contact
  • Playing fun games and exercises with you
  • Accepting people handling him, such as touching his paws, clipping his nails, getting groomed, etc.


Want to help your puppy become socialized, but are uncomfortable with going to the dog park? This is a common concern because dog parks can have unvaccinated dogs, people may not be paying attention, there are different sizes of dogs and levels of aggression, and the dog park may not be as clean as you would prefer.

Why Tucker Pup's puppy socials are so great:
  • Supervised by one of our trainers, while you watch and participate
  • Off-leash play, plus games and exercises
  • We confirm that all dogs are properly vaccinated
  • The room is kept very clean
  • The weather doesn't matter
  • Your puppy can play with others that are its same size

It's also fun to interact with other dog owners and make some new friends in the neighborhood!

We recommend signing up for 3-4 puppy socials in order to help your puppy become highly socialized and as highly prepared as possible for dog parks, daycare, boarding, the beach, and much more.

Here's what typically happens.

You get a puppy, and think to yourself, "How hard can this be? My puppy will be perfect and doesn't need training! Besides, he's already good at sitting."

At first, he's so darn cute that you don't mind that he's jumping on people or nipping your fingers. Then he starts growing. The jumping gets worse, and now he's pulling you down the street when you go for a walk. He gets separation anxiety when you leave him alone, is starting to growl at other dogs, and you saw him eat poop at the dog park. No more licking your face!


Uh-oh. This is harder than you thought, and this is only the beginning. You're not exactly sure what to do about it, and you certainly don't want to deal with these issues for the next fifteen years!

The bottom line is that you just need to know what to do, in clear, simple steps. You've already discovered that books, websites, and talking with friends or family aren't getting you very far. That's where training class comes in.

Most people believe that puppy class is about teaching their dog to sit and stay. Because their dog may already be good at sitting and staying, they may decide against it (never mind the fact that the dog will only sit when there's a treat present and with no distractions!).

Tucker Pup's training courses are designed differently than that. Instead of simply "training your dog," we believe in teaching the owners on how to properly handle their dogs and guide their behavior in a positive way.

This course covers the following topics:
  • Loose-leash walking (walking politely at your side, without pulling)
  • Listening to you the first time, without repeating yourself
  • Leaving something alone, and walking away from something

  • Crate training
  • Accepting people handling him, such as touching his paws, clipping his nails, getting groomed, etc.
  • Socialization and playing nicely with other dogs
  • Playing fun games and exercises with you
  • We also discuss play-biting and other puppy-specific challenges

Even if your puppy may not be exhibiting problems with these behaviors at the moment, chances are you will run into some of them (or similar ones) over the course of time. This class will teach you how to prevent them occurring to begin with, and stop them if they start.


The critical time for a dog's learning is before the age of 4.5 months. After that, these "challenging" behaviors become harder to eliminate. The Puppy Manners course is designed to start your puppy off on the right foot so he doesn't need to "unlearn" things later on. This will set the tone for having a wonderful, positive relationship with your dog for many years to come.

Does your dog growl or even snap at other dogs while on leash? If so, you probably already know how challenging it can be to work on training - in order to build tolerance towards other dogs, you need to be around them, and this can make the problem worse. That's why the leash reactivity course is so great! You can practice being around other dogs, in a very controlled environment where all the participants are in the same situation.

In Leash Reactivity 1, we use large barriers that keep the dogs hidden from each other until they are brought out for various exercises, usually no more than one or two at a time in the beginning. The exercises are geared towards desensitizing dogs towards each other, such as seeing them from a distance, and from the use of props. By the end of the 6-week course, many of the dogs can pass each other and are much lower on the reactivity scale.

We also give you home exercises, so you can keep practicing in between sessions.

The room is spacious, so the dogs have plenty of room to spread out. The class size is small, so it is not overwhelming to the dogs. In addition, the trainer is highly expererienced in helping dogs with reactivity issues. No dogs are ever allowed off leash during this course.

Please note that this class is for dogs who are reactive towards other dogs. We understand that some dogs don't react well towards humans either. We do take precautions to avoid any bites, including ensuring that the other people in the class don't get too close to your dog. The trainer may walk up to you from time-to-time, at a safe distance.

You get a puppy, and think to yourself, "How hard can this be? My puppy will be perfect and doesn't need training! Besides, he's already good at sitting."

At first, he's so darn cute that you don't mind that he's jumping on people or nipping your fingers. Then he starts growing. The jumping gets worse, and now he's pulling you down the street when you go for a walk. He gets separation anxiety when you leave him alone, is starting to growl at other dogs, and you saw him eat poop at the dog park. No more licking your face!


Uh-oh. This is harder than you thought, and this is only the beginning. You're not exactly sure what to do about it, and you certainly don't want to deal with these issues for the next fifteen years!

The bottom line is that you just need to know what to do, in clear, simple steps. You've already discovered that books, websites, and talking with friends or family aren't getting you very far. That's where training class comes in.

Most people believe that puppy class is about teaching their dog to sit and stay. Because their dog may already be good at sitting and staying, they may decide against it (never mind the fact that the dog will only sit when there's a treat present and with no distractions!).

Tucker Pup's training courses are designed differently than that. Instead of simply "training your dog," we believe in teaching the owners on how to properly handle their dogs and guide their behavior in a positive way.

This course covers the following topics:
  • Loose-leash walking (walking politely at your side, without pulling)
  • Listening to you the first time, without repeating yourself
  • Leaving something alone, and walking away from something
  • Keeping four on the floor and not on your guests, the counter, or your furniture
  • Coming directly to you when called, even when highly distracted
  • Greeting new people or other dogs nicely, including on walks
  • Sitting, staying, lying down, giving eye contact
  • Going to a place in your home, such as a mat, to await further instruction
  • Crate training
  • Accepting people handling him, such as touching his paws, clipping his nails, getting groomed, etc.
  • Socialization and playing nicely with other dogs
  • Playing fun games and exercises with you
  • We also discuss play-biting and other puppy-specific challenges

Even if your puppy may not be exhibiting problems with these behaviors at the moment, chances are you will run into some of them (or similar ones) over the course of time. This class will teach you how to prevent them occurring to begin with, and stop them if they start.


The critical time for a dog's learning is before the age of 4.5 months. After that, these "challenging" behaviors become harder to eliminate. The Puppy Manners course is designed to start your puppy off on the right foot so he doesn't need to "unlearn" things later on. This will set the tone for having a wonderful, positive relationship with your dog for many years to come.


Does your dog growl or even snap at other dogs while on leash? If so, you probably already know how challenging it can be to work on training - in order to build tolerance towards other dogs, you need to be around them, and this can make the problem worse. That's why the leash reactivity course is so great! You can practice being around other dogs, in a very controlled environment where all the participants are in the same situation.

In Leash Reactivity 1, we use large barriers that keep the dogs hidden from each other until they are brought out for various exercises, usually no more than one or two at a time in the beginning. The exercises are geared towards desensitizing dogs towards each other, such as seeing them from a distance, and from the use of props. By the end of the 6-week course, many of the dogs can pass each other and are much lower on the reactivity scale.

We also give you home exercises, so you can keep practicing in between sessions.

The room is spacious, so the dogs have plenty of room to spread out. The class size is small, so it is not overwhelming to the dogs. In addition, the trainer is highly expererienced in helping dogs with reactivity issues. No dogs are ever allowed off leash during this course.

Please note that this class is for dogs who are reactive towards other dogs. We understand that some dogs don't react well towards humans either. We do take precautions to avoid any bites, including ensuring that the other people in the class don't get too close to your dog. The trainer may walk up to you from time-to-time, at a safe distance.

If you have taken our Puppy or Adult Manners course, this is the perfect next step in order to help your dog reach its potential.

Now that your dog knows the basics, it's time to make all of the exercises much more challenging. We add the three D's (distance, duration and distractions) plus introduce some new commands in order help your dog build and keep its focus. The goal continues to be for your dog to do what you say the first time, without repeating yourself.

By the end of the course, your dog should be able to excel at many foundational behaviors, even under highly challenging circumstances.

Examples include:
  • Leave things alone unless given permission (even really tempting things, like a pile of treats)
  • Go to a place, such as a mat or crate
  • Stay for long period of time
  • Automatically go to your side when coming to you
  • Walk next to you politely (even without a leash)
  • Come to you from a highly distracting activity.

Don't just stop at one Manners course and think you're finished - take the next step and enroll in Intermediate Manners so your dog can continue to improve and learn crucial lifelong skills.

Want to help your puppy become socialized, but are uncomfortable with going to the dog park? This is a common concern because dog parks can have unvaccinated dogs, people may not be paying attention, there are different sizes of dogs and levels of aggression, and the dog park may not be as clean as you would prefer.

Why Tucker Pup's puppy socials are so great:
  • Supervised by one of our trainers, while you watch and participate
  • Off-leash play, plus games and exercises
  • We confirm that all dogs are properly vaccinated
  • The room is kept very clean
  • The weather doesn't matter
  • Your puppy can play with others that are its same size

It's also fun to interact with other dog owners and make some new friends in the neighborhood!

We recommend signing up for 3-4 puppy socials in order to help your puppy become highly socialized and as highly prepared as possible for dog parks, daycare, boarding, the beach, and much more.

Does your dog listen only half the time? Pull on the leash? Jump on people? Come to you when called? Leave items alone that are on the ground?

Having a dog that listens to you without fail is one of the greatest joys and can bring such peace into your life. Many people say "My dog doesn't need training because he knows how to sit pretty well." They don't know what they are missing! Your dog may be able to follow some basics in your house when there are no distractions and you have a treat in your hand, but what about all those life situations that make listening much harder? For example, what about when you're walking down the sidewalk and he spots a squirrel? When you're at the dog park and he jumps up on a small child? When you're at the beach and he runs away from you? What if you're outside and he runs toward the street and that oncoming car? When he approaches something on the floor that you don't want him to eat?


The primary purpose of the Adult Manners course is to teach your dog the fundamental skills so you can have her do what you want, on command without repeating yourself, time after time. In other words, we are trying to teach self-control across a variety of specific behaviors.
