McClelland dog walking has been walking our pup for a couple months now, and has done a great job. They are punctual and easy to reach.
I'm convinced we have the best dog walker ever! She is so sweet and so great with our dog. Our dog (who judges people) immediately warmed to her. Even when we have had to work late or something came up she was there to check on him as a favor to us. Words cannot express how much we appreciate and are thankfully to have found her, we owe much to her!
Angie is the best! She offers everything we need for our pets - Training, daily walks, boarding, grooming, and sells exceptional food and products in her shop. I call her first for anything related to my pets and she always helps me or points me in the right direction. She's invaluable to our family and my pets love her!
They were wonderful and understanding with my shy (and blind and hard of hearing) Cocker, and he was well taken care of while we were on vacation. He was so shy he was reluctant to go outside, which led to much more work than I ever expected! They texted regularly, and did a great job of letting me know how things were going. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for caring dog walkerss.
Muttsley's is a dependable, trustworthy and kind service that has allowed me to not worry when I can't be there for my dog. My dog LOVES Muttsley's and I would recommend them to anybody who needs help taking care of his or her dog.
I have completed a full course of agility training with Pawfect Dog Training and the experience was incredible. My dog, Max, and I run together and travel a lot. Being able to tire him out was a challenge initially. The Pawfect trainers had me awestruck in the first session! We planned for 2 hours and Max was exhausted after just 22 minutes of games to work his mind. He's a border collie mix. After seeing that, I knew I had hired the right trainer! We learned the agility ladder, the tunnel, the agility sticks, the hoops, and so much more. Max is always so focused on me now and tuned into what we're doing. We were close before, but now, the bond we share thanks to Pawfect's Pawsitive training methods and teaching us so much about how Max sees the world will be forever strong! Thank you Pawfect!
I would recommend Scott for boarding your dogs! He took amazing care of my 2 dogs so my family could take a last minute vacation. He was amazing with them! Thank you!
I cannot speak highly enough about the fabulous service that Brenda Montemeyer has provided for our dog Sadie. She is trustworthy, reliable, loving, and fun! I would highly recommend her!
I foster dogs through IBR. That is how I have gotten know Lisa. She is such a gift to the animals. The love and compassion she has when it comes to animals is amazing. I would trust any pet to her. I know your animals are in great care with her. Fran wingbermuehle
Nicole at Great Pet Vacations was a Godsend to our family. Our 14 month old yorkie poo was disobedient and had awful manners. We did not have the skills to change the situation. In June, we did 9 days of board and train with Nicole and we all were amazed at the initial results. Cocoa immediately was more reliable with potty training, would not cry in her cage and did not attempt to escape her pen. In July, she went back for the additional 12 days of the board and train program and can now sit, lay, target, walk on a leash, leave an item alone and is a calmer more obedient dog. Nicole is a miracle worker and takes her time demonstrating how to continue working on reinforcing the behavior with the owners to ensure continued success at home. She spent more than an hour with us at the intake consultation in order to understand our training goals. In addition, she spent more than 2 hours upon exit. It is clear she loves the animals she cares for, treats boarded dogs as her own, and is a superb dog trainer. This experience was every thing I hoped for and more than I expected. We plan to continue training sessions with Nicole and give her our highest recommendation to others.
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 .
I wanted to say something about Dilis Dog Academy and their approach. I have been to the “box stores” to learn training, but let’s face it, you get what you pay for. I got a certificate that said my dog passed, but I couldn’t get him out of the store! I shopped around and looked at the qualifications of the trainers available to us here in the Chicagoland area. That provided real world training with effective and lasting results. Tom has 12 Standard Commands that if your dog learns, then you are awesome. His Three Critical Commands held to the standard of the Four Variables of Proofing (can you tell that I tried to learn as much as I could, and how he tries to instill this in us?) can be life savers. You want results, hire Dilis Dog Academy and commit to the training
Sharlene took care of our dog while we went away for 4 days. She kept us up to date as to how Dopey was doing and never minded answering our questions. She is a sincere person that we trust with our doggie and will gladly use her help next time we travel
Top notch dog trainer. Professional and very knowledgeable. It was only a week before I noticed huge differences in my dog's behavior, and taught easy to use techniques to help maintain good behavior. Highly recommended!
Nicole called me back in a timely matter. She was extremely professional. Her prices were average for this area. I’m from San Diego, where I thought the price would be higher but they are about twice the price here. Shocked me. She was the 5th dog walking service I spoke to, but the 1st I interviewed. My dog took to her immediately! He does not do this to everyone, as he is extremely protective! So, that was a very positive sign. She brought one of her walkers with as they will be helping to walk my dog and he loved her as well! He went on a walk with Nicole already and loved it. When they got back he got a snack and was happy as can be! She also met all 3 of my cats, so if I need her too she can also care for them. I’m very happy I was put in contact with Mutts in A Rutt!
I highly recommend Sue If you're looking for someone who is very professional with more than fair rates. However, I felt her most outstanding quality was her kindness and compassion for my elderly dog, Duke. It is a huge relief,when going out of town, to know that your dog is getting the very best of care each and every day.
Denise and crew have been walking my dogs for over fifteen years now. I would never want to have anyone else. Whenever I have had something unforeseen come up, Four Paws has ALWAYS stepped up and helped me. They care about my dogs as if they were their own. Years ago when I first realized I needed dog walking services, I had an unfortunate experience with another company (they simply 'forgot to come'!) so it took some time for me to trust that Four Paws would not 'forget' us. I feel fortunate to have found them, and I am not kidding when I say I don't know what I would do without them.
She was a tremendous help. She came in today, evaluated my dog and gave me lots of helpful hints. She is highly recommended.
Jeanine took care of our golden retriever Cali for about a year. She would walk her and play with her each day for 30-45 mins. She was really great with her, extremely reliable, and we could tell she really cared about our dog. She left us notes each day to let us know how cali did that day. I would highly recommend Jeanine as a dog walker.
This dog that I babysat before didn't like other people and only prefer me to come to see him and he know my voice and the way I cuddle him and play with him. My husband came with me one time, he was so shaken. So, I knew I was special to him.
