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!

Gina walks our dog everyday and is completely dependable and reliable. She has a true love for dogs which is completely obvious in all of her engagements with our dog... we're pretty sure he likes Gina more than us! I would absolutely recommend Gina as a walker and trainer for dogs.

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".

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 !!! 🤗🤗

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!

Emily is a naturally gifted, highly responsible and enthusiastically caring pet caregiver. She is dedicated to our dog, and our dog lights up around her. We have never seen our dog as happy as she is with Emily. Emily will spend extra time with our dog, consistently going above and beyond to provide excellent care and unforgettable service.

Have not experienced Carols expertise on dog training yet, but thumbtack app wants me to rate anyways. Carol has gone out of her way to contact me for a phone converstion and has been very patient w my unavailabilty. As for thumbtacts rating i would say 3 stars which a 5 star waiting for the app to allow u to schedule these appointments threw the app making all the phone calls a unnessacary step. Hope to see u soon ped pet dog training !

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!

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!!
