A brand new dog training facility is opening in Chicago. Owner Nancy Reyes has been training dogs in Obedience and Agility for many years and has “taken the plunge” and opened a beautiful new facility. She will be offering Obedience, Agility, and Flyball training classes.

I’ve known Nancy for several years through Dearlove Agility, Windy City Agility Club, and Dana Pike’s classes. Nancy is one of the really nice people in Chicago dog training and I’m sure this new venture will be a big success.

The building is located on the south edge of O’Hare Airport so it is conveniently located for many Chicago area handlers. It certainly is convenient for me, it is only 10 minutes from my house. The centerpiece of the facility is a ~100’ by ~100’ ring covered in new 3/8” matting. The matting is soft and has good traction. Nancy has a full set of AKC Agility equipment.

Even though it is just opening it is already in demand. Dana Pike is using the facility for her Winter classes. I’ve rented the ring for Agility practice and a number of Obedience handlers were using the ring for practice too. I’m sure as other handlers become aware of the ring rental it will be booked all the time.

The building is officially opening on December 5th with a number of dog training demonstrations including: Obedience, Agility, and Flyball. Our Flyball team Black Sheep Squadron will be giving the Flyball demonstration.
