Joining the Suburban K9 Team
Exciting! Rewarding! Challenging! Fulfilling! These are just some of the words our trainers use to describe their Suburban K9 experience. It isn’t just a job. It is a calling.
Who Are We Looking For?
We’re always looking for people that are willing to go outside of their comfort zone and live a life worth living! It’s certainly “unconventional” to make a career out of dog training, but we’re looking for those who are willing to make their passion into a day job. Our trainers are motivated. They want to learn, and they continue to do so on a daily basis. They’re well spoken, confident, and empathetic with our clients.
During the last 10 years we have steadily grown from one location in Chicago to many locations throughout the Country. All of our current locations are extremely busy and we are currently expanding further! We’re looking for individuals throughout the country that want to join our growing company.

The Things We Do
Our company offers a variety of different training options for our clients. From basic obedience classes, board and train programs, to in-home appointments, we’re able to tackle a vast range of behavioral issues! Our trainers undergo an engaging and informative apprenticeship program which provides extensive exposure to some of the most common issues dog owners face today. We understand dogs have the ability to add a great deal of stress to their owners’ lives, and we’re here to lend a helping hand!
Our trainers spend most of their time on our two main services, in home training and boarding and training. Our trainers generally take two dogs into their home at a time to fully train them and then train the owners after the board and train is complete. This is a fun way to earn a living, help clients, and have a truly flexible schedule.
What We’re Not
We are not a franchised company. Franchise opportunities often cost up to $100,000 or more! You don’t pay us to become a Suburban K9 trainer. We pay you! Your apprenticeship program is very thorough and intense. Not only will you learn a massive amount about dog behavior, but you will be paid the whole time. How awesome is that?
Franchises often function just like a game of telephone. What person 1 said and what person 10 heard are often very different. We at Suburban K9 take pride in the consistency of our quality training and techniques. We won’t water down our services to fatten up our wallets. We expand slow, and we do it right.
