Highwood Facility Closed

We are thrilled to announce that we will be closing our Highwood, IL location to expand our services locally! We are working tirelessly to offer an increase in availability and the quality of our services throughout the North Shore. We aim to make this transition as smooth as possible for all of our clients, with minimal and temporary changes to our popular programs throughout the expansion process.

Private Training Sessions & Consultations will continue as usual, with more local availability, online coaching options as well as in-home sessions.

Animal Assisted Therapy Sessions will be held at the office of Anita Schmidt, L.C.S.W. at 466 Central Ave., Suite 50, Northfield, IL 60093 beginning April 2019. 

Group Training Classes will continue to be hosted locally along with increased online and webinar offerings. Details regarding location and schedules will be announced closer to the time of open enrollment. An email will go out with updated class offerings and the spring class schedule following spring break.

Canine Playtime will no longer be offered after March 23, 2019 We recommend attending the indoor social sessions at Pet Peeple, in Deerfield, IL. or utilizing our Online Meetup Board to find friendly dogs to meet with for private playdates as an alternative to the dog park environment. To view the online meetup board visit

Day Academy will no longer be offered during the transition, we aim to expand this program in the future and will keep everyone updated to any changes. For your daycare needs, we recommend Yuppy Puppy in Lake Bluff, IL due to the excellent facilities, well trained staff, and transportation offerings.

We are excited to expand our services locally and to continue to offer the personalized care that we pride ourselves on. We thank you all for being a part of our amazing community and cannot wait to see what the future holds. Please keep an eye on email updates as we will announce location openings and new programs as they develop!
