Please note that Diane has retired only from dog training so that she can spend more time with Ron, her dogs and all of the wonderful doggie guests staying at the Chandlers' Clixworld® Inn.
“We have been with Clixworld® for over 18 months...We have been involved in the training aspect as well as the boarding. Both areas deserve a 10 on a scale of 1-10...Our hyper-active 3 1/2 year old Bichon has become a much better behaved animal because of the training and ideas for change that Diane Chandler has given to us...We can't say enough about the personal and caring atmosphere in our training sessions in our home. Never was it punitive, but rather helpful and positive...And, IT WORKED. The Boarding at Clixworld® is more like a first class hotel, with plenty of room, healthy exercise and a climate again of caring for our Lilly. I would recommend either the training or the boarding to anyone...Excellent service and pure love of animals.” Joan & John Bolger and Lilly of course, Aurora, IL
“Since he was a small puppy, our Labrador Retriever has been a happy visitor to the Clixworld® Inn and a student at the Training School. We travel often and feel completely at ease leaving our little guy for a short or long stay. We know he gets personal attention, lots of love, and a safe, clean place to stay. We especially appreciate the 24 hour supervision that he gets, which sets the Clixworld® Inn apart from all other options in the area. Check-in and out are always seamless and we get a detailed report about his stay. He LOVES going to "camp!" Thanks Clixworld!” Kerri H., Geneva, IL
“I wouldn't board Sammy anywhere else. You and Ron are wonderful people and your heart and soul go into truly caring for our family while we are gone. I can trust that Sam is having a blast. I would be willing to bet it would be nearly impossible if not impossible to find the kind of hospitality that would include comforting him during a thunderstorm, switching his next door neighbor to someone more compatible, trying to check his belly for rashes, or simply treating him as family. Sam isn't "boarding", he is on "vacation". I can't thank you enough for the professionalism that your team has for the families that visit your facilities. The trust goes beyond words. Hope to see you next summer! Will give plenty of notice.” Mary Kay Loyd, Virginia
"My dogs have been boarding at Clixworld® since they were puppies. These puppies are now mature dogs who have health problems which require medications and special assistance (one is blind). The care they receive there is the same as the care they would have at home. We leave on vacation knowing that they are in good hands." Cindy Schalk, St. Charles, IL
“When leaving our two small dogs at the Clixworld® Inn, we feel comforted in the knowledge that our dogs will be very well cared for there. The facility is extremely clean and well run. The caretakers are true dog lovers, and treat each dog like it was their own. Our dogs come home happy after a stay at the Clixworld® Inn.” Patrick & Maureen Quinn, St. Charles, Illinois
“We know that Bogey Basset Hound enjoys his vacation time with you, because he howls all the way home when my daughter picks him up. He loved his puppy training with you also -- people, dogs, treats -- it doesn't get any better than that for Bogey.” Danna Szczepanik, St. Charles, IL
"We have used Clixworld® training and Inn for the past two years, and would not consider going anywhere else! Our dog Baylie is so well loved and cared for when we go out of town, we have no doubt she enjoys her stay with Diane and Ron. We highly recommend Clixworld! Thank you for doing what you do with the love and passion you have!" Janet and Gary Ashurst and Baylie
"We love the Clixworld® Inn. Previously, we had tried a house sitter. I almost ruined our vacation worrying about our dogs and our house. It turned out that my worries were well founded! So then we tried 2 other kennels. At one, our dogs came home with stress related illnesses. The other kennel had so many additional fees for basic care, it was ridiculous! We thought we would have to give up vacationing until we found the Clixworld® Inn. It is comforting to find that the people we know and trust from dog training, also offer boarding. Our dogs vacation so well with the extra attention and lower stress environment (and so do I). Plus, we can afford to go away because of the reasonable charges without all the hidden extras. THANK YOU Diane, Ron and Clixworld!" Pattie Kenyon, Batavia, IL
“We are happy to endorse the Clixworld® family! We registered our English Cocker Spaniel puppy in a Clixworld® training program recently and found the trainers to be notably personalized and caring. Their insight and knowledge regarding canine behavior management was a cut above what we had ever experienced as dog owners eager to train and understand our pets. We also boarded our puppy at the Clixworld® Inn and found excellent facilities along with accomplishing leash training which we requested. As we moved along the way with our little guy, some special needs arose. We found Diane Chandler understood the circumstances and gave us both guidance and support in our efforts to deal with the issues. A big thank you to Diane for being there when direction especially was needed during perplexing moments. We look forward to many more positive doggy experiences with our Clixworld friends.” Kathy and Paul, St. Charles, IL
"I am so pleased that the lady who sold us our puppy suggested that I take her to Clixworld® in Geneva for her puppy training classes. A local friend, a long time owner of several dogs, also told me that Clixworld® in Geneva “was a great place.” So it’s reputation precedes it!
I am very happy with the whole experience. Diane freely offered me some very helpful behavioral tips even before the class began. Our puppy absolutely loves the classes, and has really enjoyed meeting Diane and the trainers and, especially, playing with her classmates during “recess.” She is doing very well with her training, and it has greatly improved her “manners” at home. I am definitely signing her up for the next class.
It is obvious that Diane and her staff are highly professional and really love and understand dogs. Knowing this, I wouldn’t hesitate to use their kennel if we went out of town. As a new puppy owner, it is nice to know that service is available.” Mary H., St. Charles
