Fetch! Dog Training’s focus is on the people-dog bond using positive reinforcement training.


I offer a variety of group classes and private training sessions throughout Chicago’s North Shore communities.

At Fetch! Dog Training, I believe that each dog is an individual and training to your dog’s strengths is important to being successful. 

I listen to your training goals and come up with a plan that works best for you, your family and your dog.

Through the use of Positive Reinforcement techniques I tailor each training session to help meet your goals and build an everlasting bond between you and your dog.


Dog training isn’t limited to just the dog in the relationship. A trainer’s job is more like being a coach, coaching you and your dog to be the best team you can be.

About Fetch Dog Training

Nancy Paolucci, CPDT-KA did not discover her passion for dogs and training until she adopted her first dog in her 20’s. She delved into training and dog behavior research, realizing her dream of working with dogs.
Fetch! Dog Training uses Positive Reinforcement training methods. I focus on the key concepts of Motivation, Consistency and Timing and teach you how to apply these to training and modifying behaviors. Positive Reinforcement is a science-based training technique with a proven history of positive outcomes.

Taking a class with your puppy or dog is a great way to not only teach them invaluable skills but to also build a long-lasting relationship.
