I absolutely loved scotts approach and he gave me so much more information for my Frenchie that I hadn't heard from other dog trainers per sey. He was very pleasant and professional and if anyone needed help with thier dog I would highly recommend him!!!! Thanks Scott!!!!
Sherry is a wonderful dog trainer. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with her. Unfortunately due to some family issues we were forced to get rid of the dog. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
Great dog training service! Adopted a young golden and he had some behavioral and serious obedience issues I wasn't prepared for or new how to deal with. A dog trainer at my work spent numerous sessions with my dog and was unable to deal with or correct any of the major concerns. I found my personal dog trainer in Lombard and the results were remarkable. Another plus is I also received lots of extra tips and advice after the sessions were complete. I have already recommended their service to two other neighbors. Mike R. Bloomingdale, IL
From our initial conversation, Leah was friendly, professional, and passionate about Worthee, and providing exceptional services for me and my two dogs. I spent almost a year searching for a dog walking service before I came across Worhee. I was impressed by the thoroughness of Worthee's hiring and training process for it's dog walkers. Leah was extremely patient and even enthusiastic about answering all the questions and concerns I had regarding allowing another person to handle my dogs. She went above and beyond to work with me on a package that would fit my lifestyle and budget. After I had my first meet and greet with the dog walker, I contacted Leah to express a few concerns I had. Leah immediately took the initiative to contact me by phone and listen to all my concerns in depth with a both professional, and down to earth demeanor that made it easy for me to speak openly. She then quickly put my mind at ease and resolve all of my concerns. Leah then went a step further and came along on the next meet and greet and connected me with a dog trainer from Worthee, thereby creating a team of remarkable people to help improve the lives of my dogs and myself. I absolutely love receiving a photograph of my pups on the days of their walks and a nice note about how their walk went. I found that Worthee is without a doubt a unique company. They have set themselves apart by making their client's and client's pet's happiness the number one focus of their business!
Working with Chris has been an absolute joy. If you are looking for a trainer for your dog, you will not believe how big a help Chris will be for you and your dog. For example: I was walking Kona down the sidewalk when someone with her dog asked if I used a trainer because Kona was the best behaved dog she had ever seen. She was so impressed, she reached out to Chris for her own dog! We could tell within minutes of talking with Chris that he truly cares about the dogs he works with and about us as the parents. His passion for dogs is clearly evident and his knowledge and ability to help matches his love of dogs. When we first were looking for a trainer, part of it was due to wanting to make sure we were teaching her correctly, and part was due to a resource guarding. After we had our first session with Chris, the resource guarding issue was taken care of in about 5 minutes! He also helped us significantly in how she plays with other dogs, she walks next to me, does tricks on command, and he helped with how she behaves around the house. Strongly recommend using Chris!
I LOVED PAWFECT DOG TRAINING! The trainers were incredibly insightful and spent more than enough time to not only train Jack, but to teach me everything I needed to know to do my training with him in between our sessions. Jack would get so excited every time we would pull up to the Pawfect House and Matthew and Carin always gave us such great greetings. Being able to train with other dogs in such a friendly environment was so relaxing and pressure-free. We thought we would just do some general training for behavior to stop Jack's jumping and nipping concerns but we learned so much and evolved to agility training with Pawfect and it has done wonders to reduce Jack's energy level and he is so much more responsive to my commands now. I spent so much money on training facilities and I simply didn't know if I would ever be able to resolve my issues with Jack, but a friend told me about Thumbtack and once I was quoted by Pawfect, spoke to Matthew and Carin, and reviewed the Pawfect website, I felt that it would be a safe bet to try the training and I am so, so happy I did. This experience was unlike anything I would've ever imagined for dog training. It is so much more than basic obedience or even advanced obedience training. Matthew is a behavior specialist first and he completely changed my view of not only my dog but all dogs. Working with our dogs as just an animal was simply not correct. Learning that Jack is actually as intelligent as he is and training him as such really made a difference; not in days or weeks, but immediately! I can go on and on but I want to express how truly amazing Pawfect Training is and I encourage anyone and everyone to stop doing facility training and just go to Matthew and Carin and experience what I have; IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE AND YOUR DOG'S LIFE FOREVER! Thank you Pawfect... for more than you will ever know!
Leslie is an excellent dog trainer, patient, diligent, organized...a true professional who we would recommend to any dog owner looking for a trainer. Paul & Molly
Dee is amazing she is best dog trainer! My dog love her!
Jeanie Murray: Well, seven years ago Tom McMurchie worked with me and my 1-year old Labradoodle, Rush, in Phoenix AZ. I don't have adequate words to explain how wonderful the experience was. Tom was knowledgeable, professional, patient, humane, and just darn perfect. He trained me as well to make Rush an awesome, well-mannered family member. Then, Tom moved to Chicago. Rush is 8 years old (still perfect), but Tom has always been available for me to talk to him on the phone with dog-training advice. Then we brought a second Labradoodle into our home at 8 weeks old, Reagan. Do I ever wish Tom was still here to work with me and Reagan, who is a work in progress (almost 3 years old now). Actually, Tom did advise from afar when I had questions about Reagan. If you are looking for that perfect person to work with you and your dog, don't look any further than Tom McMurchie. Thanks, Tom!
Nicole is an excellent dog/people trainer! She is very patient and thorough with both the dog and the owners. I highly recommend her!
I made contact with 5 star canine to train my dog. Jason arrived at my house on time, explained his services and went to work immediately training my dog. My dog now listens to my commands. Unbelievable. I was extremely impressed with his knowledge, expertise, and value. If you need your dog (s) trained, I would highly recommend contacting five star K9. I am glad I did .
Marcus and Chris were great with our Lab. We had signed her up for a 10 day board and learn training program, and we see a marked improvement in her while walking on the leash - she is more responsive to commands, and it's so much easier to stop her from pulling on the leash when there are other dogs around. The trainers are really nice, and it's obvious they love dogs and love what they do. Would highly recommend them to other dog owners!!!
Jay is extremely attentive to details. He takes time to study your personality and lifestyle and pairs you up with the dog that can fit into that personality and lifestyle. He is always available to help answer all my questions about the health of my dog and even other dog owners he has no relationship with. I have learned that when it comes to dogs, Jay is always right. My dog got missing one day due to my negligence, and he gave me steps on how I can make sure my dog finds her way home, and before and hour, my dog was barking in front of my door. Jay is an exceptional and professional dog whisperer and I would always recommend him.
I can't say enough great stuff about not only how Kelly is outstanding as a dog trainer but how patient she is training the owner as well. If you want the best for you dog, this is the trainer for you!

Piccalo has been participating in training with Stacy for over a year. Initially he was swimming and on the treadmill for weight loss and fitness. Then group classes to improve his socialization and impulse control. Piccalo is becoming a more balanced dog as a result of the patience and skill of Stacy and the rest of the staff at Four Legs Pets. They treat you like family.
Chris and Diane are excellent dog trainers. They are truly committed to helping an owner reach their dog training goals. I highly recommend using them for dog training services!
I have been training dogs for about 16 years, and I'm very good at it. I do obedience and attack, and I also help dogs with trust issues.
I offer basic obedience training with emphasis toward off leash obedience. Currently working with private clients in Chicago.
