""I have been bringing my dogs to Chicago Canine Academy for years. I could not think of a better place to train a dog. I have read the negative reviews and I could not disagree more. The methods used are not harsh, they are necessary. A balance of correction and praise is used to communicate with the dog. Before you pass judgement on Jim Morgan and his training techniques, do yourself and your dog a favor and stop in a watch a class. You might be surprised that it is not as some of these reviews would have you believe it is. Many happy well trained dogs come out of Chicago Canine Academy, dogs that otherwise would have been deemed beyond help by purely positive trainers.

Think about this~
You would not raise a child without corrections/punishments, why would you raise a dog without this element? Positive methods are great for teaching but eventually corrections will be needed to assure good behavior. Your dog needs both elements to be successful.""

""Let me preface this by saying that due to everyone at Chicago Canine Academy, I've got just about the coolest dogs ever.

Jim Morgan dramatically changed my dog's behavior and my expectations . After going to many different dog trainers and classes, I was referred to Chicago Canine Academy. From continual practice and obedience classes here, my dog has done a complete 180. All """"negative corrections"""" stem from a place of fairness and compassion. My dog's obedience allows her to live a big, happy, life. Training makes owning a dog so much more enjoyable!! I never thought I could confidently walk around the park with a once vicious, aggressive pit bull. I even got another dog! I'm so proud of my animals and I know that they're thankful for the training that we've gotten at Chicago Canine Academy. Jim can come across a little crazy, but he's a fantastic dog trainer and obviously loves dogs. You can't argue with the results. I highly recommend this place.""

Jim from Chicago Canine Academy is fantastic. My husband and I can't thank him enough. See we adopted a dog 2 months ago who's previous owners never did any type of obedience training. He was terrible at walks and would be difficult to control at home just very hyper and wouldnt listen at all. We took him to Jim for an evaluation to enroll him in obedience class and in 20 minutes Jim had him sit and stay AMAZING ! And this was done without any harsh corrections at all. Now we take him twice a week for training and he's doing amazing in are walks and at home. Jim not only trained are dog he trained us as well. Let me tell you this was and is the best money ever spent. It's awesome to find a trainer who knows about animal behavior and how much he loves his job we will always bring are dog and any other dogs we adopt in the future to Jim. Highly recommend Chicago Canine Academy !!

I love CCA. When I started training my german shepherd pup, Charlie, all I really wanted was a dog that didn't drag me down the street. Now, a year later, Charlie is reliable, strong, well behaved and happy! Jim Morgan and his staff show you endless possibilities of things you can do with your dog. I have seen Jim rehabilitate ""vicious"" dogs and give them another chance in life. In fact, I now own one of them. Lewis, my 3 yr. old rott had been given up by his original owners because he was considered dangerous. Lewis is now the sweetest, friendliest dog I've ever seen, because of Jim and his love for dogs! Owning 2 large breed dogs is a responsibility I take very seriously and my dogs have a great life because of Jim Morgan. I can take them anywhere! Trust, safety (of the dog), control and just plain FUN is what Jim and CCA are all about!

She has had fear aggression issues for which we have taken her to behaviorists, trainers, etc. People don't want to come to our house because they are afraid of our dog. In less than a half hour Jim had her seated on a pedastal calmly watching as people came in went out. I sat there in stunned disbelief. This wasn't my dog. The day before another trainer was scolding me and insisting that it was just a matter of time until we had to have the dog put down.

I strongly recommend Jim. I know we have more work ahead of us, but Jim inspired confidence that we could do this. Our dog is such a big part of our lives it would crush us if we had to put her down. Jim convinced me that he has what it takes to help us help her, and I was so grateful I was close to tears as I left. We will be back, and if you are having a problem with a dog, Jim Morgan is the guy you want to go see.""
