About Takacs Dog Training

A force free and positive reinforcement dog training experience.

Takacs Dog Training LLC is a force free, positive reinforcement dog training experience. That means that at no time will I use fear or pain as a part of my dog training services. My dog training will consistently and patiently instruct your dog in the behaviors that you prefer to see and reward your dog for those behaviors. In time, your dog will decide to provide those behaviors because he finds value in them. This will result in a dog that is a better decision maker and as a result better behaved.

All of this is done with programs that are tailor made to fit your needs and are provided exclusively in the comfort of your home.  Convenient Day Training services are also available so your dog can learn while you are away at work. As a result, you and your dog will learn the skills needed to sustain your dog’s good behaviors.

Our training programs have been provided successfully throughout the Chicagoland area and Northwest Indiana for puppies, adult dogs, rescue dogs and dogs who exhibit issues with anxiety or fear.

My dog training education began by receiving my Dog Training Certificate from the Ferndog Trainer Academy. I have continued my education in the Ian Dunbar Academy as well as receiving further instruction from Malena DeMartini, Pat Miller, Ken Ramirez and Sue Sternberg. I am also a Professional Member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers.

If you have a rescue dog, we will make a donation to that rescue from your paid fees to support the good work that they do. We also provide free lifetime support via email, phone or text after your training program is completed.

“Chris was amazing to work with! We really enjoyed how responsive and knowledgeable he was. We learned such great tips and tricks that we will use for a lifetime. We still stay in touch with Chris and he is very personable! We are so glad we enrolled Wrigley in Puppy Kindergarten.”
