It is the mission of Brooks Canine Center to modify negative behavior whether it is puppy behavior or aggression issues that may lead to the relinquishment or even euthanasia of a family pet. We instruct owners on how to communicate with their dogs in its natural language and how to fulfill the dog’s first and most pressing need: leadership.

Board and Train Program: This program is a 1-3 week program where your dog boards at our facility in Des Plaines. All training is obedience based where we work your dog daily to modify negative behaviors and to improve your dogs overall obedience. This program comes with up to 3 one on one lessons after the board and train is complete where we instruct you on how to continue with the training.
