Meeting and working with Susan was above and beyond what we could have hoped for! She came to our house in Lake Zurich and was here for about 2 hours she really knows her job well and taught us things about our dog that we never would have figured out ourselves. She has a great personality and was really easy to communicate with. Our dog Reptar also responded to her on a positive note. It took about 15 minutes for her to get Reptar to trust and listen to her and by the end of the visit he was really comfortable around her and listened to all of her commands. We can't wait to have her work with Reptar again and in fact she is coming back in 2 days to work one on one with Reptar and our son. Her prices are really reasonable but no matter what she charges, she is definitely worth it! You can tell she loves what she does and goes the extra step to make sure you know why she is doing what she is doing and how we can continue to make progress with Reptar until her next visit. We think she has resolved the reason for Reptar's aggression and now we have work with him to make it better and we truly believe with Susan's help and knowledge, we will achieve our goal. We don't believe there was anything she could of done to improve our visit. She knew what to do the minute she walked in our door and by the end of the visit, we felt progress was already made and can't wait for her to come back and continue working with Reptar. We would most definitely recommend Susan to anyone who really wants excellent training for their dog. She knows her job, she is really good at what she does but most of all, she loves doing it and that makes the results even more rewarding. We feel that we have already created a bond with her and can't wait for the final results with Reptar to be achieved.

Scott was very professional and understanding of the issues that I personally was having when it came to training my dog. He spent time with me to make sure I was comfortable and offered good advice.

Even though I didn't eventually need a walker, I was impressed with the prompt, polite, and accommodating responses from your employee. If I should need dog walking services in the future, I surely will contact you.

Sherry has a wealth of knowledge and experience when it came to training my dog as well as teaching me to help train my dog. She is very gentle with her doggy clients yet firm. The classes are honestly fun, informative and practical can't get any better than that.

Gina was excellent to work with. Not only is she good with our Dog, but probably as important: good with us (after all, Dog Training is more about teaching the owners to teach the dog, than teaching the dog!).

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!

I could not say enough good things about working with Stephanie when it came to training my dog. I have a rambunctious bulldog who's a year and a half. Nothing but behavioral problems, nipping, chewing things, eating things, and not coming when called. She was always on time, patient with my dog and myself, and made me feel comfortable with having her take care of my pup. I would HIGHLY recommend having her train your dog. I was thoroughly impressed to say the least!! I fully intend on utilizing this training in the future with future dogs as well.

Jim was the best! In 5 weeks (really just after the first lesson!) I had the confidence and tools to maintain my dog’s training. It made the world of difference walking my dog, Barney, each day when he would walk by my side and sit on command versus pulling the leashing and leading me. Barney loves our walks together, and I do too! He sits, stays and comes on command! I can't thank Jim enough for his patience and positive energy. His passion for dogs is obvious and I would recommend him to any/all families in need of training! Katie G.

Here is a little history, we adopted a tree walker coonhound from a shelter in Tennessee and brought him home to Wisconsin. The first month was ok as we all got adjusted to each other. There were counter surfing, mouthing and dominance issues from the beginning. We knew we had a stubborn ALPHA, ALPHA male but we were working through it. The dog and I had an altercation over a rawhide where he became very aggressive and tried to bite me. From that day forward he would try to attack me unsolicited any time he saw me or heard my voice. It got so bad I would have to lock myself in a room so my wife could let him out. I am 6',1" tall and 220 lbs, this is the first time in my life with all the dogs I've owned that I was afraid of a dog. We talked to many behaviorist's whom all said we should just rehome the dog and had no answers for us. I was determined not to give up and make things work because I knew that this was a good dog deep down inside. That is when I was recommend to Shelly at "Hair of the dog that bit ya". I got a great feeling from her right away on the phone and was intrigued by her explanation of how she handles her training of dogs (it was a much different approach from what I was hearing from everyone else). This is a large breed hunting dog who is aggressive and she knew exactly how to handle it. She came out the very next morning to a situation where everyone in the house was uneasy and afraid of this dog who now was in total control of the situation. Long story short after two hours Shelly had broken the dog had him taking commands from both my wife and myself. We felt like we had our lives back and believe it or not the dog seemed happier that he now knew the pecking order. This was truly a Christmas miracle for my entire family. The picture attached is from the same day where that morning my dog wanted to kill me and what he was like by the afternoon! I cannot thank Shelly enough and I am so excited for our new life together with Bohannon. Todd & Shelly Bloom

We are extremely satisfied with Carolyn! We revied many people and we received many responses but somrthing about Carolyn's approach really made us want to work with her! She's patient, on time and flexible with our schedule. We have a unique situation at our home having two dogs that decided one day they were not going to get along. Our one dog (who is very stranger aggressive) LOVES Carolyn and laid down next to her even on the first day, which is huge for her. Through our training interactions we learned how much our pitty LOVES training and how our other dog needs our help with training to increase her confidence. We will continue working with her and are extremely happy with our choice!

Belinda provided excellent care for our dog. Our dog, being a rescue dog, required specialized care in which she delivered; this included having patience, providing lots of attention, and staying overnight. All of which she did all eagerly. Belinda came to our house on a couple different occasions so our dog could become familiar with her. She even brought our Pebbles a new toy and treats! She maintained communication with us while we were away, providing updates and sending pictures. While it was difficult to leave our dog (specially being new to this state) I did find comfort knowing she and our house were being well cared for. Belinda is truly a sweet and caring person to owners and their pets as well as honest and responsible. We will definitely be using her services again:)! Thank you Belinda! We greatly appreciate all you have done for us!
