Sherry had our aggressive shelter dog literally eating out of her hand within 30 seconds after first entering our door! With anyone else the dog would be barking & growling non-stop for who knows how long. She told us all kinds of tips & tricks, training us to train our dog. We both have had dogs all our lives but never one with so many issues. We are this dog's 3rd home according to the shelter. That alone should have been a red flag. Today after one visit, we have a much calmer dog who already is responding to the techniques Sherry taught us. We will be practicing them to see if we will need Sherry again for fine-tuning. So far we can see a big improvement in less than 24 hours & would definitely recommend her, especially for a strong-willed aggressive dog. It's a miracle!

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.

From our initial conversation, Leah was friendly, professional, and passionate about Worthee, and providing exceptional services for me and my two dogs. I spent almost a year searching for a dog walking service before I came across Worhee. I was impressed by the thoroughness of Worthee's hiring and training process for it's dog walkers. Leah was extremely patient and even enthusiastic about answering all the questions and concerns I had regarding allowing another person to handle my dogs. She went above and beyond to work with me on a package that would fit my lifestyle and budget. After I had my first meet and greet with the dog walker, I contacted Leah to express a few concerns I had. Leah immediately took the initiative to contact me by phone and listen to all my concerns in depth with a both professional, and down to earth demeanor that made it easy for me to speak openly. She then quickly put my mind at ease and resolve all of my concerns. Leah then went a step further and came along on the next meet and greet and connected me with a dog trainer from Worthee, thereby creating a team of remarkable people to help improve the lives of my dogs and myself. I absolutely love receiving a photograph of my pups on the days of their walks and a nice note about how their walk went. I found that Worthee is without a doubt a unique company. They have set themselves apart by making their client's and client's pet's happiness the number one focus of their business!

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!

Working with with Pawfect Dog Training was an amazing experience. We adopted a new puppy from the shelter and wanted to crate train her, so she would be comfortable in her crate when we were not home. Matthew did a great job training our dog to go into the crate on her own and feel comfortable in there. More importantly he helped teach us the right way to train her and taught us how to keep up with that training to get positive results. After only a few weeks of working with Pawfect and keeping up with our training at home, our puppy had no problem going in her crate on her own. Now she is so comfortable with her crate that she will go relax in there even when we are home! I definitely recommend anybody to work with Pawfect Dog Training to help train their dogs!

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 !!! 🤗🤗

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

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.

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!

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!

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.
