I absolutely loved scotts approach and he gave me so much more information for my Frenchie that I hadn't heard from other dog trainers per sey. He was very pleasant and professional and if anyone needed help with thier dog I would highly recommend him!!!! Thanks 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.
YBFDH did a great job training our two dogs. I will say this trainer is a great trainer, however she doesn't sugar coat things and she will tell you like it is. Our dog Stevie was counter surfing any chance she got, also was tipping the garbage can and other things like that. We are so glad we found YBFDH and look forward to a lasting relationship with the trainers and the company!
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 have to say that Pawfect Dog Training really did a professional, excellent job. I'm really satisfied with their training system. High Quality training. Thank you I am so happy I used your services!
I volunteered to assist the Navy in training recruits at RTC Great Lakes, while stationed here I wanted to find something to do with my time while I was here. I decided that I wanted to get dog and train the dog to be a therapy dog. I thought it was an outstanding way to provide love & affection for people that truly need it. I hand selected a female Golden Doodle, that I named Bella. I now needed to find a dog trainer to help me train Bella, after searching around for a few days, I was referred to Leslie Wooldridge, after meeting with Leslie and discussing the reason why I wanted to her to train Bella, she was very direct and up front about how it is going to be acommitment, and that it is a lot of work. I respected her honesty because I could see that she took pride in her work. I have been training with Leslie for almost a year now, and I am extremely happy that I chose her. The relationship between Leslie & Bella has been amazing, and the results of the training have aloud Bella to ace both the AKC "Canine Good Citizen" (CGC), and Therapy Dog International (TDI) certifications. I would highly recommend Leslie Wooldridge to anyone willing make the commitment to take the time necessary to get superior results.
Leslie is an excellent dog trainer, patient, diligent, organized...a true professional who we would recommend to any dog owner looking for a trainer. Paul & Molly
Scott did a great job with house training/off leash training with my dog, Penny, and later bird training.
Dee is amazing she is best dog trainer! My dog love her!
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 !!! 🤗🤗
Lynn is an amazing dog trainer and she has changed our lives in only a few sessions:)
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 .
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.
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’s knowledge of my dogs aggressive behavior alone was so impressive that I immediately knew she was the right trainer to handle My dogs fear and aggression issues. I’d never heard of day training and couldn’t believe that My dogs aggression could be fixed in such a short time, but her knowledge was impressive. I’m both amazed and so grateful for the work she did with my dog. The only downside was that it was a pricier than some of the other companies I talked to, but totally worth the investment in the end! I would and have recommend her to anyone looking for a trainer!! Thank you Stephanie!
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.
I have spent a year looking for a good trainer for me and my dogs. I found one when I contacted the Dog Life Center. The trainer was excellent. Just what my dogs and I needed.
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 wont 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 dogs individual needs. And, she truly cares about you and your dog. When everyone gave up on our dog, she was there. Shes 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. Shes genuine. She will make your dog shine.
Joe has helped me with several foster dogs. He has helped me learn positive techniques that work very well. I highly recommend him!

I have been training dogs for about 16 years, and I'm very good at it. I do obedience and attack, and I also help dogs with trust issues.
