|Heartland Dog Training
& Education Foundation
Heartland Dog Training is a non-profit dog training and
education foundation on Peoria´s Northeast side. Our training facility
is nestled back in the trees - far from any highway - and has plenty of
flat, frequently mowed, outdoor grassy spaces for dog training. We
have a fully handicap accessible, regulation size, obedience ring in
our air-conditioned building. We also have a fully fenced outdoor area
where you can come and work on any training problems that you are
Our all-volunteer staff has been training, showing and placing titles on
their own dogs for years. Their love of dogs is evidenced by the care
and concern they show toward their own dogs and yours. All of our
volunteers sincerely love and respect animals. It doesn’t matter if you
want a well-mannered, all around pet or if your goal is to show your
dog in obedience trials. With your help, our goal is to assist you with
having the best dog you can living in your home.
Heartland features small classes and a friendly atmosphere. You will
receive personal attention for your dog´s problems in an open, non-
judgmental manner. Our methods follow the AKC Novice Platform.

you and your dog!
