Scott the Dog Guy is a true professional through and through. From the moment he met my dog, Leia, it was clear that he knew what he was doing. His assessments of Leia (and myself) began immediately. He thoroughly answered all of my questions, and gave me tons of advice on how to achieve a healthier, happier dog. We worked with Scott twice - once at home and once at the dog park. Leia had been developing aggression towards other dogs (and the occasional person). I was so worried that Scott was going to show up and tell me all was hopeless. He proceeded to provide me with the tools I need to help Leia. If you actually listen to everything he suggests, then your dog will behave better in no time. We noticed positive results the day after our session with Scott. If you choose to ignore some of his suggestions, then you can't expect your dogs behavior to reach the level you truly want. Again, Scott is knowledgable, professional, and an absolute joy to work with. Thank you so much, 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.
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!
Andrea first met our dog, Jake, in an adult beginner class. It became clear shortly after we got Jake and he started taking the classes that he had some difficulties around people and other dogs. She handled him so well in every class, setting up a special area for us where he wouldn’t be distracted by the other dogs and owners while still being able to participate in class. She taught us all the basics and was very patient and attentive to Jake, despite not being able to directly interact with him until the fourth week. She gave us so much helpful one-on-one advice before and after every class and continued her wonderful work with us with a couple private sessions. My husband and I were fortunate enough to reconnect with Andrea at Canine Connect for the “Rambunctious Rovers” class designed for reactive dogs. In this class, we learned how to build off of Jake’s beginner knowledge to help him succeed in challenging circumstances. Andrea is able to use her firsthand knowledge of these types of dogs not just due to her training background, but because of her experiences with her own reactive dog. She is able to relate to our difficulties. In this class, we learned many strategies on how to have better control of Jake to prevent things from going wrong. We also learned how to allow for and reward his good decisions. I’ve left this 6-week class with so much more confidence on handling our dog. Throughout all of our time with Andrea, she has been available to us outside of class to address our concerns and questions. She is patient and caring with all of her clients. She truly loves what she does, and it shows! Andrea is a fantastic dog trainer committed to her clients and we look forward to working with her again.
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!
Nicole is an excellent dog/people trainer! She is very patient and thorough with both the dog and the owners. I highly recommend her!
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.
Marcus and Chris were great with our Lab. We had signed her up for a 10 day board and learn training program, and we see a marked improvement in her while walking on the leash - she is more responsive to commands, and it's so much easier to stop her from pulling on the leash when there are other dogs around. The trainers are really nice, and it's obvious they love dogs and love what they do. Would highly recommend them to other dog owners!!!
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!

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.
Chris and Diane are excellent dog trainers. They are truly committed to helping an owner reach their dog training goals. I highly recommend using them for dog training services!
