A Closer Bond is northwest suburban Chicago’s premiere, all-inclusive canine center. Katy Cushing, founder of A Closer Bond, realized her true passion centered on dogs early in her life. In 1988, she graduated from a school for dog trainers, where she discovered the unique bonds that are possible between dogs and their owners. After working with trainers in Chicago and Atlanta, she took her natural ability and training background and opened A Closer Bond in Palatine, Illinois in 1994.
