We asked Dee to come and observe our recently adopted rescue pug’s toy aggression. Dee immediately and accurately diagnosed Wilma's behaviors as the result of anxiety from a troubled past. Dee explained the purpose of the bad behaviors and how to correct them- to instill confidence in Wilma and integrate her into our “pack.” Her methods were quick, easy, and effective, as evidenced by our pug immediately learning and responding appropriately, and displaying calm behavior. Dee followed up that day with a helpful summary of our visit, and list of training vocab words, and she even offered me her number to text for any quick questions. We will certainly invite her again should any other issues arise, and we whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone looking for an enjoyable and educational experience.

Diana understood my issues with the dog and immediately assessed the dogs behavior. A plan was formed. My dog was in her great Highland Park home for 2 weeks. I received daily video, pictures, updates about my dog. Star & the other staff are warm & giving with all the dogs. A good environment for a dog to change. I would recommend them highly. I would send my dog back.

Scott was great with my dog Theo. K9 tutoring provides a great environment for learning. After two days of training we could see the difference in Theo's behavior. In addition, Scott gave us the tools to continue his training on our own. I would highly recommend K9 tutoring.

Sherry is a wonderful trainer as well as a wonderful person. She was extremely responsive as I was able to meet with her shortly after our initial conversation. After only two sessions, I have already noticed differences in my dog's behavior and look forward to our next in home visit.

After spending a ton of money on training through another company with almost no change in my dog’s behavior I was starting to fear that he was a lost cause. A friend recommended Stephanie and I couldn’t be happier! She was on time, extremely knowledgeable, and had control of my dog’s behavior almost instantly! After staying with Stephanie for just two weeks my dog behaves perfectly!

Belinda is amazing!!! She does a wonderful job with both our dogs! She's even made them peanut butter puppy cookies. She gives us daily updates after her visit and sends photos. She even started training our one pup to sit before crossing the street! She is reliable, professional, trustworthy and a genuine lover of animals. Belinda is the best!

Leslie helped me learn how to train my dog, Velvet, to pass the Canine Good Citizen test. Using Leslie's training techniques, I was able to dedicate time outside of the class to really help my dog learn new behaviors.

I would highly recommend Julie to any of my friends (and have) that want to train their dogs. I like that she comes to your house. She was very helpful in giving me a different approach to training that is more my style of training. I have started using the techniques she has shown me in the past few days and my dog has shown improvements.

I used the owner of North Shore Dogs for a couple years before I moved down to the city and I can honestly say from experience that I have never felt more comfortable or confident in a dog walker than I do in NSD. She was always there when needed in a pinch and consistent about when and how long she took my dog out. In addition to the daily walks I also felt very comfortable leaving my home and my animals (cats and dogs) in here care for extended periods of time. I recommend NSD for all of your pet needs! Now I just wish she would extend her services downtown ;)

Lynn is the kindest, most patient and warmhearted, knowledgeable, and flexible person to work with. She has an exceptional understanding of dogs and their behavior. During our initial evaluation, Lynn gave us a few pointers and our dogs were behaving better. I could not ask for a better person to "train" me in training my dogs.
