Why Choose Training at Happy Pup Manor?

We deliver breed-tailored training for Doodles, Retrievers, and Smaller Breeds in a home-based environment to achieve exceptional results.

We’re the doodle house! We have a passion for these free-spirited, intelligent pups. Our deep knowledge of their traits and behaviors allows us to provide customized training that gives your pup structure and manners while bringing out their personality. One of the many reasons we love Doodles and Retrievers is because they make excellent therapy and service dogs!  We’re honored to offer therapy dog training in addition to our more traditional obedience board & training program for pups who will work with children, seniors, and others in need of comfort and companionship from a well-behaved pup.

Intimate, Immersive Training Experience

Your puppy will be a guest in our home during their training session, living with our highly knowledgeable team around the clock. This warm, familiar setting puts your pup at ease – allowing for fun play with furry friends and loving humans in the yard or on the couch.  Training in a home-based setting also enables us to simulate a home experience; from distracting scents in the kitchen to knocking at the door, and going outside to potty!

This continual reinforcement of positive behaviors is crucial for effective training. Plus, by welcoming only selective breeds into our training programs, we ensure that your pup will be surrounded by furry friends with similar personalities and playstyles, making their stay more fun, comfortable, and productive.

Our trainers have experience in raising and training Emotional Support, Therapy, and Service Dogs.  If your training goals include becoming one of these most special types of pups, please discuss with Gabby when you are signing up.

5-Star Amenities for Your Furry Family Member

All of our boarding and training dogs stay as guests and receive a 5-star luxury experience. Your fur baby will have supervised access to over 6,000 square feet of our home and our New training building AKA “Gigi’s house”, and our spacious, fully fenced, 30-acre yard is a city pup’s dream come true.  Happy Pup Manor’s complimentary chauffeur service within the Chicagoland area ensures that puppy training fits easily within your schedule.


Our Happy Pup Manor Training Programs

How Long is Your Training Program?

Just like children, puppies are most elastic at a young age. Puppies who spend more of their young weeks at The Manor build off of a fresh foundation of lifelong good habits, preventing naughty behaviors like jumping or mouthing from becoming bad habits.

Accordingly, we recommend the following programs depending on your pup’s age and your training goals:

  • 10 Day – A good general-purpose foundation for any pup under 2 years old.
  • 4 Week – Ideal for young puppies or a family looking for therapy training or a lead into service dog training.
  • 8 Week – Puppy stays with us through the majority of housetraining time and lives with our pack to develop a lifelong foundation for good behavior.

We also offer longer training programs for those with specific training goals. Call Gabby today, or fill out our contact form to set up an appointment, to discuss your specific training goals and the ideal program for your pup.

All puppies in our obedience training programs receive:

  • One hour of individual training per day
  • Group training with other puppies in the program
  • Supervised playtime to socialize with other dogs big and small
  • Constant reinforcement of training throughout the day in a home environment

Our extensive experience and unique accommodations have made us the trainer of choice for numerous doodle and retriever breeders nationwide.  Our owner and lead trainer, Gabby, is a certified AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy and Canine Good Citizen evaluator who holds several Masters titles in competitive dog sports such as Agility and Nosework, and she is a registered member of The Association of Professional Dog Trainers and The International Association of Canine Professionals.
