Scott the Dog Guy is a true professional through and through. From the moment he met my dog, Leia, it was clear that he knew what he was doing. His assessments of Leia (and myself) began immediately. He thoroughly answered all of my questions, and gave me tons of advice on how to achieve a healthier, happier dog. We worked with Scott twice - once at home and once at the dog park. Leia had been developing aggression towards other dogs (and the occasional person). I was so worried that Scott was going to show up and tell me all was hopeless. He proceeded to provide me with the tools I need to help Leia. If you actually listen to everything he suggests, then your dog will behave better in no time. We noticed positive results the day after our session with Scott. If you choose to ignore some of his suggestions, then you can't expect your dogs behavior to reach the level you truly want. Again, Scott is knowledgable, professional, and an absolute joy to work with. Thank you so much, Scott!

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.

Great dog training service! Adopted a young golden and he had some behavioral and serious obedience issues I wasn't prepared for or new how to deal with. A dog trainer at my work spent numerous sessions with my dog and was unable to deal with or correct any of the major concerns. I found my personal dog trainer in Lombard and the results were remarkable. Another plus is I also received lots of extra tips and advice after the sessions were complete. I have already recommended their service to two other neighbors. Mike R. Bloomingdale, IL

Amazing experience so far! The trainer is the best. My dogs have been "trained" by other trainers - it was very negative and unsuccessful. I'm so thankful I found Sunset- very positive and extremely effective.

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 LOVED PAWFECT DOG TRAINING! The trainers were incredibly insightful and spent more than enough time to not only train Jack, but to teach me everything I needed to know to do my training with him in between our sessions. Jack would get so excited every time we would pull up to the Pawfect House and Matthew and Carin always gave us such great greetings. Being able to train with other dogs in such a friendly environment was so relaxing and pressure-free. We thought we would just do some general training for behavior to stop Jack's jumping and nipping concerns but we learned so much and evolved to agility training with Pawfect and it has done wonders to reduce Jack's energy level and he is so much more responsive to my commands now. I spent so much money on training facilities and I simply didn't know if I would ever be able to resolve my issues with Jack, but a friend told me about Thumbtack and once I was quoted by Pawfect, spoke to Matthew and Carin, and reviewed the Pawfect website, I felt that it would be a safe bet to try the training and I am so, so happy I did. This experience was unlike anything I would've ever imagined for dog training. It is so much more than basic obedience or even advanced obedience training. Matthew is a behavior specialist first and he completely changed my view of not only my dog but all dogs. Working with our dogs as just an animal was simply not correct. Learning that Jack is actually as intelligent as he is and training him as such really made a difference; not in days or weeks, but immediately! I can go on and on but I want to express how truly amazing Pawfect Training is and I encourage anyone and everyone to stop doing facility training and just go to Matthew and Carin and experience what I have; IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE AND YOUR DOG'S LIFE FOREVER! Thank you Pawfect... for more than you will ever know!

As a first time dog owner I have learned that the process to a well behaved dog is the training of both the dog AND the owners. Our rescue one year old Birder Collie/Australian Shepard mix was pretty well behaved indoors and in our yard but had a very aggressive issue when meeting new digs and people. He could not be trusted to not bite either. After one session with Lynn and homework he was 100% better. After the second session I have little fear of having a problem. Buddy still needs some work however the change has been dramatic. Lynn comes to your home with written plans and homework assignments. Hire Lynn, you will not be disappointed. Jeff Wadsworth

Michelle is an absolute wonderful trainer.........my 2 dogs have completely flipped 100% into completely different dogs.......when my 2 dogs first met Michelle they literally wanted to attack/ kill her .......we have been working with Michelle for 3 lessons. Both my dogs now can be approached by Michelle with no problems what so ever......they give kisses ....let her let them .....i can now walk both of them at the exact same time with no issues of pulling me......let me remind you my dogs are 80lbs and 105lbs ......so to be able to now walk both with out them pulling me is a miracle !!! We've had issues with our dog Hayzel being aggressive when it came to meeting new people and Michelle has been working with us to improve that and take it away completely......i am sooooooo Happy to have found Michelle to help me with both of our dogs !!!!! I don't know what I would do with out her ......probably be stressed out big time !!! She's amazing and she knows exactly what she's doing, so if you're looking for someone who is willing to help you please choose Michelle!!! She is our Miracle !!! 🤗🤗

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!

Jay is extremely attentive to details. He takes time to study your personality and lifestyle and pairs you up with the dog that can fit into that personality and lifestyle. He is always available to help answer all my questions about the health of my dog and even other dog owners he has no relationship with. I have learned that when it comes to dogs, Jay is always right. My dog got missing one day due to my negligence, and he gave me steps on how I can make sure my dog finds her way home, and before and hour, my dog was barking in front of my door. Jay is an exceptional and professional dog whisperer and I would always recommend him.

Piccalo has been participating in training with Stacy for over a year. Initially he was swimming and on the treadmill for weight loss and fitness. Then group classes to improve his socialization and impulse control. Piccalo is becoming a more balanced dog as a result of the patience and skill of Stacy and the rest of the staff at Four Legs Pets. They treat you like family.

    In the first year of his life, my Great Dane had worked his way through two dog trainers and five dog walkers. The latest trainer- a certified animal behaviorist, had recommended we put out 9 month old puppy on prozac. My husband and I were against the idea, but decided to have the conversation with our vet. He absolutely refused and then recommended we talk to Kyra. Fast forward two years. Thanks to Kyra (and Comfy K9s) we watched our misunderstood, misbehaved puppy grow into a respectful, loving, well behaved family member. When it comes to training, except to work. Kyra takes her role very seriously. She won’t let you fail your dog. The number one thing that separates her from any other trainer, behaviorist, dog walker- I've worked with is her passion. She wants to help and she'll get it done any way it takes. She reads. She studies. She asks questions. The training is customized to your dog’s individual needs. And, she truly cares about you and your dog. When everyone gave up on our dog, she was there. She’s reliable. I know I can call her anytime and Comfy K9s will take care of us. (They're actually on my emergency contact list!) Kyra is trustworthy. She’s genuine. She will make your dog shine.
