WELCOME


The specialty of Thunder's Pack Canine Training in Brookfield, IL is taking dogs of all breeds, all ages, all temperaments, and making them loving, obedient members of your family.

    I volunteer with a rescue group and currently have 2 energetic foster dogs as well as a very playful 2 yr. old puppy. I needed help with my three very rowdy boys, but I did not know who to call. After speaking with several trainers and behaviorists, I decided to work with Thunder. I liked that he came to our home where the dogs were most comfortable and they behaved most naturally. Each dog had his own unique set of problems and needs, so the situation was complicated. From the first visit, Thunder knew what to do to get control of the dogs' behavior. After 3 months of hard work,they are now more calm and obedient,the house is more peaceful, and our daily routine is easier. I have enjoyed learning from Thunder. His help has been essential in restoring peace to our home. Thunder has always been most generous with his time and advise. His training style is firm and kind, and his love and caring for the welfare of the dogs always shines through.
