So far I just had my first session with Scott and I was extremely impressed. I have a high anxiety adult dog who is quite a handful, and Scott managed to calm my dog down. I am looking forward to our weekly sessions in overcoming my dog's (and mine) anxieties so that he can be a great canine citizen.

Helene was willing to watch our dog, Hubble, during the weekend of our wedding. She even agreed to a meet and greet beforehand. Helen was kind, communicative, and did a fantastic job! It gave us such peace of mind to know our baby was well cared for during that special time.

Edgar was great to work with. He was super professional and did everything he said he would. He even offered to come back and do additional applications of weed killer when he saw how bad the weeds were. He's seriously awesome and hardworking.

We have been using Christy's Canine Care for about three years now and have had an excellent experience. She has a wonderful way with dog's. Our dog, Lexi, is quite skittish but Christy worked her magic and very quickly, she and Lexi where best friends. Our neighbor has a dog that no dog-sitter was able to get near enough to even get a leash on her. But in the first visit, Christy had the leash on her and was able to walk her. My neighbor caller her a "dog whisperer".

I met Alaine at a dog park. I instantly saw the love she has for animals. It is very hard for me to leave my two dogs with anyone. I have a very hard time trusting people with them as most of you do. I have used her service for 1 day up to 5 days when I took a trip. She is absolutely wonderful at doing what she does. I highly recommend her. Both my dogs just love her and go crazy when she walks in the door. Do not hesitate calling her.

Leslie put me at ease the moment she walked through my front door! She is so easy to talk to about any issues concerning my dog and takes the time and care to personalize training to that dogs needs. Her training method allows for the puppy parent to both see Leslie herself do it and then for me to do it myself, since us humans needs training too! It's very crucial that the puppy parents takes and use her guidance as it will pay off immensely! My puppy, Rhett,was constantly love biting for attention and bothering us during non play time, like dinner. Thanks to her training (me and Rhett that is, lol), he is not nipping and knows when we go to eat, it's not play time. He's also much improved with greetings,has better focus, and is well in his way to be an excellent Canine Citizen! We love, Leslie! 2 paws up! !

Jackie was such a tentative listener to our doggie training needs! She came over and consulted us, really listening to our challenges and gave us great tips to begin properly training our puppy. Her wide breadth of knowledge and experience really showed! We plan to continue using her services.

Chris was great to work for training my puppy Lily. I really liked that he listened to what I wanted to work on, and made sure to personalize our lessons based on what I wanted. He was very attentive, and also made sure to check in between training sessions, which was very much appreciated. I would absolutely recommend Takacs Dog Training to anyone looking for a great in home trainer!

Highrise Petcare is the only company I trust to take care of my dog. Brian, the owner, and his team are super responsible and friendly. It is such a relief to know my dog is in good hands with them. Also, it's great to know who will be walking my dog each day - way better than those other services with constant staff turnover. I would highly recommend Highrise Petcare to anyone looking for a reasonable, reliable and caring dog walker.

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 .

My dog is a shelter dog with multiple issues. This is the first time I have needed dog care beyond the assistance of family and friends. I found Nancy, General Manager of Fetch, to be both professional and caring. My dog and I immediately felt comfortable with Nancy and his dog sitter, Jennifer. Jennifer took care of my dog for 4 days and did a tremendous job! She understood exactly what my dog needed. She provided him with the same routine he is used to and a lot of love. To put my mind at ease Jennifer would text with updates and pictures each day. I highly recommend Fetch! Pet Care of Orland Park to Frankfort, to any dog owner.

We got a new pup and we needed someone to come 3 times a day, to play, walk and feed her while we were at work. When I contacted Lets Walk Chicago, Lauren promptly responded to my emails and even met with us Friday night before we even got our puppy. When we got our little one we met with Beth the designated walker for the area as well as Lauren who fills in should Beth not be able to make it. Beth and Lauren are wonderful, they comes to take Watson out at the requested times, feeds her and plays with her. If for some reason our normal walker isn't able to make it, we get a notice the day before or the morning of that Lauren will be filling in, they keep us in the loop on everything. I also get cute pictures and notes of the days activities. So far I could not be more pleased with Lets Walk Chicago.

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!

Robert was amazing in taking care of my dog. He was extremely professional and responsive. I loved getting photo updates of how my dog was doing. I also greatly appreciated that Robert was trained in pet CPR and was independently insured - definitely kept my mind at ease whilst I was gone. I recommend Robert and the Pigglesworth Pet Project very highly!

John has provided the BEST dog walking service we have received in the past three years of owning our new puppy! We have had a number of dog walkers in the past for various reasons and John is by far the best! He is professional, dependable, caring to our dog, sends us photos after each walk, and overall is a pleasure to work with! The most important factor for us is reliability given we work during the day and John is always there to walk our retriever! He does not walk our dog with other dogs and devotes his time and energy to making our puppy happy while we are at work. John also goes above and beyond as he gives our dog a peanut butter Kong before he leaves so our dog doesn't bark while we are away. Please work with Top Dog Chicago as your dog will love the service!!!
