Scott was outstanding! He quickly identified the problem and gave us 'homework' to work through it. His knowledge of dog behavior is very solid. We will definitely hire him again if future problems arise.
Sherry is a wonderful trainer as well as a wonderful person. She was extremely responsive as I was able to meet with her shortly after our initial conversation. After only two sessions, I have already noticed differences in my dog's behavior and look forward to our next in home visit.
Diana understood my issues with the dog and immediately assessed the dogs behavior. A plan was formed. My dog was in her great Highland Park home for 2 weeks. I received daily video, pictures, updates about my dog. Star & the other staff are warm & giving with all the dogs. A good environment for a dog to change. I would recommend them highly. I would send my dog back.
Belinda is amazing!!! She does a wonderful job with both our dogs! She's even made them peanut butter puppy cookies. She gives us daily updates after her visit and sends photos. She even started training our one pup to sit before crossing the street! She is reliable, professional, trustworthy and a genuine lover of animals. Belinda is the best!
First off, Christy is amazing! She is very professional and cares about dogs deeply. I contacted Christy because I have a 46 pound Pitbull named Layla who is very reactive/aggressive towards other dogs and was seeking training/behavior classes. What Christy found was and reassured me of, was that Layla was not aggressive at all and that as a dog, she did not want to be. Rather, Christy said that she was very insecure of herself and I found that to be very true!! During session 2, Christy brought along her dog Mazzei and after only 3 sessions, Layla was able to co-exist with her PEACEFULLY!! It is truly amazing and I would have never been able to imagine that Layla would be able to be around another dog. Added bonus: Christy massages Layla when she is in distress which teaches her to calm down and it has been a huge help! Christy gives my boyfriend and I expert direction on how to properly train Layla as well as weekly "homework" assignments. Although we are still continuing training with Christy and onto our fourth week, we have found her to be a huge help and couldn't imagine the way Layla is now without her. I HIGHLY recommend Christy for training, behavior modification, and canine massage for your furbabies. You will not regret it!! If I could, I would rate her 10 stars! Do yourself a favor and hire Christy...like NOW! :)
Leslie helped me learn how to train my dog, Velvet, to pass the Canine Good Citizen test. Using Leslie's training techniques, I was able to dedicate time outside of the class to really help my dog learn new behaviors.
We asked Dee to come and observe our recently adopted rescue pug’s toy aggression. Dee immediately and accurately diagnosed Wilma's behaviors as the result of anxiety from a troubled past. Dee explained the purpose of the bad behaviors and how to correct them- to instill confidence in Wilma and integrate her into our “pack.” Her methods were quick, easy, and effective, as evidenced by our pug immediately learning and responding appropriately, and displaying calm behavior. Dee followed up that day with a helpful summary of our visit, and list of training vocab words, and she even offered me her number to text for any quick questions. We will certainly invite her again should any other issues arise, and we whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone looking for an enjoyable and educational experience.
Chris transformed me and my dog, Declan’s, relationship through turbulent times. He enabled me to communicate with my dog and better shape behavior through positive reinforcement and maybe a little bit of training me. It was refreshing and fun. His enthusiasm is unmatched.
Scott was great with my dog Theo. K9 tutoring provides a great environment for learning. After two days of training we could see the difference in Theo's behavior. In addition, Scott gave us the tools to continue his training on our own. I would highly recommend K9 tutoring.
Judy took excellent care of our animals while we were on vacation. She looked in on them 3 times a day which was what we had agreed upon. Judy che ked on them once each morning, once in the afternoon and once in the evening which was also when they were fed. The animals included our two dogs, our son's two chinchillas and our box turtle. We were iimpressed with the fact that she tried fixing the water bottle for one of the chins. When that didn't completely succeed, she went and purchased a new one. Judy definitely took care of the needs of all our animals. We came home to a clean house and happy animals. We have already made arrangements with her to come back again in October. In short, Judy's service was outstanding.
After spending a ton of money on training through another company with almost no change in my dog’s behavior I was starting to fear that he was a lost cause. A friend recommended Stephanie and I couldn’t be happier! She was on time, extremely knowledgeable, and had control of my dog’s behavior almost instantly! After staying with Stephanie for just two weeks my dog behaves perfectly!
Tammy is amazing! We have a 3 month old Shih Tzu. My boyfriend was out of town all week and he normally comes home on his lunch to walk and play with our pup, so we needed someone to take over while he was gone. Tammy came out for a meet and greet with our pup, and we instantly knew she was trustworthy and had a true love for animals. We utilized her Training program, and her dog walking services. I would highly recommend her! Thank you Tammy!!
Tami is wonderful to work with. She is great with animals, flexible, and responsive. She goes above and beyond to make sure her customers (and of course, their animals) have a positive experience. I highly recommend her!
Laura is magnificent with animals. She treated our dog like she was her own. The care and love Laura provides is 2nd to none. When we're out of town we never have to worry. She always takes her time with the walks and always makes sure our home is locked and secure when she leaves....A+
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 ;)
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.
It is obvious that Alec is an animal lover. Conscientious, kind and respectful of the owners and their pets.
Paige helped me win my new lab puppy. She was very patient and even involved my daughter in the training. During the training Paige was always available to answer questions and went above and beyond and has allowed us to email her even now if we reach a sticky spot. Things with Bella have been great in the house and I look forward to purchasing more training from Paige in the future.

I will care for, help train or clean up after your large or small animals while you are home or away. I have worked as a small animal vet tech and I have horses and have been their sole care provider for years. If you need a sitter, a stall cleaner, help training or even help administering meds just call me. There is no job too small.
