Scott was AMAZING!! I can't believe how much we learned in one hour with him. He has such a great personality and definitely knows his stuff. I would definitely recommend him for any dog training/behavioral problems. I can't wait to now use all the training we learned. Thanks Scott...you're the best!!

We picked up our dog Mandi about 10 days ago. She was having some anxiety issues, and was very timid around other dogs. We heard about YBFDH from our neighbor and thought we should give them a call. We live in Colorado, and didn't want to send Mandi alone on the plane, so the owner of the company flew out and picked up Mandi and flew back with her. She updated daily with photos and videos of Mandis progress. We flew into Chicago for the weekend when it was time for Mandi to come home. Once home we noticed her behavior was much different. She seems so much calmer and not as timid when other dogs are around. She even plays with the neighbors dog now instead of running away! We give 5 stars and would recommend them to anyone else interested in truly loving dog training!

Belinda was absolutely amazing, she looked after out new dog pheobie while we were away over Christmas. I immediately felt comfortable leaving her in charge of our pet & home when we met & my confidence continued to grow. Belinda clearly loves dogs & pheobie obviously felt at ease with her very quickly as they were playing & gelling within minutes. Belinda sent daily updates with pictures to us which was sweet as we missed her & could see she was happy & ok. I would highly recommend Belinda & will definitely be using who let the dogs out again, in fact we already have her pencilled in for our next trip to Mexico. Thanks Belinda.

Leslie put me at ease the moment she walked through my front door! She is so easy to talk to about any issues concerning my dog and takes the time and care to personalize training to that dogs needs. Her training method allows for the puppy parent to both see Leslie herself do it and then for me to do it myself, since us humans needs training too! It's very crucial that the puppy parents takes and use her guidance as it will pay off immensely! My puppy, Rhett,was constantly love biting for attention and bothering us during non play time, like dinner. Thanks to her training (me and Rhett that is, lol), he is not nipping and knows when we go to eat, it's not play time. He's also much improved with greetings,has better focus, and is well in his way to be an excellent Canine Citizen! We love, Leslie! 2 paws up! !

Here is a little history, we adopted a tree walker coonhound from a shelter in Tennessee and brought him home to Wisconsin. The first month was ok as we all got adjusted to each other. There were counter surfing, mouthing and dominance issues from the beginning. We knew we had a stubborn ALPHA, ALPHA male but we were working through it. The dog and I had an altercation over a rawhide where he became very aggressive and tried to bite me. From that day forward he would try to attack me unsolicited any time he saw me or heard my voice. It got so bad I would have to lock myself in a room so my wife could let him out. I am 6',1" tall and 220 lbs, this is the first time in my life with all the dogs I've owned that I was afraid of a dog. We talked to many behaviorist's whom all said we should just rehome the dog and had no answers for us. I was determined not to give up and make things work because I knew that this was a good dog deep down inside. That is when I was recommend to Shelly at "Hair of the dog that bit ya". I got a great feeling from her right away on the phone and was intrigued by her explanation of how she handles her training of dogs (it was a much different approach from what I was hearing from everyone else). This is a large breed hunting dog who is aggressive and she knew exactly how to handle it. She came out the very next morning to a situation where everyone in the house was uneasy and afraid of this dog who now was in total control of the situation. Long story short after two hours Shelly had broken the dog had him taking commands from both my wife and myself. We felt like we had our lives back and believe it or not the dog seemed happier that he now knew the pecking order. This was truly a Christmas miracle for my entire family. The picture attached is from the same day where that morning my dog wanted to kill me and what he was like by the afternoon! I cannot thank Shelly enough and I am so excited for our new life together with Bohannon. Todd & Shelly Bloom

Are experience was truly amazing! We have a 1 year old German Shepard mix that is high energy and within the first half hour Dee had her understanding commands like sit, bed, lie down and stay. She also showed us how to get her to stop jumping and nipping. Not only was the training great and effective but her recommendations for items to help walking and keeping her busy while we are not home were as well. We also really liked that she is very passionate at helping dogs and and their owners and that was very evident because she works with you during first appointment and then if you need any extra help you can text,call or email her! I would highly recommend this dog trainer!!

What a relief!! Finding a caregiver for my baby on super short notice could have been brutal. My request was answered immediately, the cost is competitive and I was super comfortable with Nicole's experience. My dog was happy when I got home as was I. I will definitely use All Aboard again. Hire her!!!

Chris was great to work for training my puppy Lily. I really liked that he listened to what I wanted to work on, and made sure to personalize our lessons based on what I wanted. He was very attentive, and also made sure to check in between training sessions, which was very much appreciated. I would absolutely recommend Takacs Dog Training to anyone looking for a great in home trainer!

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 .

My 3 dogs look and smell great after getting groomed here. One of my dogs is part Schnauzer and we always get him a schnauzer cut, which isn't easy to do, I've been told. She did outstanding. I also have a yorkie who was dealing with an injury and she was able to work with him. After a bad experience at PetCo and having visited multiple dog grooming facilities, I am beyond pleased and satisfied with my experience at Deja Vu's K-9 Corner. I will be going back to get my dogs groomed here.

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!

I could not say enough good things about working with Stephanie when it came to training my dog. I have a rambunctious bulldog who's a year and a half. Nothing but behavioral problems, nipping, chewing things, eating things, and not coming when called. She was always on time, patient with my dog and myself, and made me feel comfortable with having her take care of my pup. I would HIGHLY recommend having her train your dog. I was thoroughly impressed to say the least!! I fully intend on utilizing this training in the future with future dogs as well.

Great extra service added by YBFDH!! This place was really great with working out our dogs aggression, and then when we were ready they helped us get him certified as an emotional support dog. I noticed a review on here or their other page stating that a dog had been in a fight. I am the owner of the second dog in this " fight". The story in the review below is inaccurate. The owner of YBFDH acted as any business owner would in the situation that was presented. I think it is malicious and frankly disgusting to post such a review. YBFDH/AT YOUR SERVICE has been a god send for our family! If you're not satisfied with your experience I will reimburse you for your training costs!
