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.

We really love the in home setting used for training. Everything is done in a trainers home and the dogs are supervised 24hours a day. The trainers, and employees of Your Best Friends Dog House are great. They are very attentive to the human clients needs as well as the dogs and other animals. We were introduced to YBFDH about 3 years ago, we had an 8 year old Irish wolf hound and he was starting to act iffy. He would growl at the kids and was beginning to become aggressive to strangers. Our neighbor had used YBFDH for dog walking, and pet sitting so they mentioned to me they also offer dog training. We sent our old boy to learn some new things, and he came back without any of the negative behaviors he had previously shown. We now have a 1 year old Great Dane and he did his puppy and basic training at YBFDH. They do a great job!

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!

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".

Nicole! What can I say? She's amazing! We were gone on vacation for a little over a week. I have 2 bigger dogs and one that's small but a senior doggie. They come with their own set of challenges. She stepped up, is able to handle those challenges with a positive attitude and a passion for her job. You can tell she has a genuine love for animals and treats them like they are members of her own family. She doesn't discriminate against big dogs/small dogs, which anyone with big dogs knows is a godsend. I will absolutely hire her again, and you should too!

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 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 .

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!

My husband and I are new dog owners and Lindsey has been a great help to us. We have taken classes with her and she has come to our home for private training. We knew nothing and Lindsey has patiently given us easy to understand instruction on how to be good dog parents. The dogs respond so well to her. She is always available to answer questions. Lindsey is professional, kind to us and our dogs, and has a tons of knowledge to share. We plan on continuing both classes and private sessions.

Laura is magnificent with animals. She treated our dog like she was her own. The care and love Laura provides is 2nd to none. When we're out of town we never have to worry. She always takes her time with the walks and always makes sure our home is locked and secure when she leaves....A+

Carol is amazing. Our dog wa so calm and happy when we got home from our two week vacation, and I know it was because she was being loved when we were gone. Carol also sent us adorable pictures every time she visited our dog, which made us feel more confident that Béarnaise was having a great time and we needn't worry about her. So much peace of mind!! Once a few months after our trip, we ran into Carol on a dog walk. My dog spotted her from across a busy road and started crying and whining and trying to get to her to say hello. When we finally got to her, she was so happy to see her friend she couldn't stop jumping on her and licking her. You're definitely in good hands with Prairie Path!!

Stephanie was incredible! Not only did she help us with our new puppy, but she also offered to come look at shelters with me for an emotional support dog. She helped me find potential dogs that would fit my needs, spent her day off looking at shelters with me, and giving my family recommendations and advice on acclimating the new dog into our home all on her own time. She had no problem answering our million questions any time we texted her. She absolutely went above and beyond for our family! I highly recommend her to anyone who’s looking for a great trainer who also just genuinely cares about her clients and their dogs!

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 ;)

I can say that our experience with Susan caring for our little Ginger (adopted pooch of 2 years), was truly awesome! From the first meet & greet there was a "love connection". Clearly Susan has a love for dogs as though they were her own. When I returned home from my trip after Susan cared for Ginger, it was quite obvious that she was well cared for and exercised properly. Each time Susan has helped us out while away, Ginger walks around the house looking for Susan once she leaves and whines a little as if she's lost her buddy. I would recommend Susan as a reliable and super friendly dog walker/pet sitter!!
