Scott did a great job of getting to root of my german shepherd's behavioral issues and identified what I could be doing better. Within one hour I was walking my dog without issues. Since our session, my dog and I are enjoying near-perfect walks as she a far-less distracted by her surroundings and more focused on me. At home, she is calmer and I noticed much less barking which is a nice plus. Overall, I am pleased that I could have this much control after one session. I would highly recommend Scott for any dog training needs.
This was my first time getting a trainer and I made the best choice with Sherry. She's an incredible woman with a very holistic approach to dog training, which is exactly what I was looking for. She knew her information and put us in the right direction to correct my dog's behavioral issue. She is very relatable, easy to communicate with, and an overall joy to be around. I cannot wait to work with her again soon!
Jaime does a great job of training your dog. She really understands the best way to get through to your pet, and does a fantastic job of explaining how to continue training after your session with her is over. I would definitely hire her again, she did a wonderful job with my two year old lab Kane. He came home a different dog after his two week training session.
We used Worthee for the first time over the Christmas holiday (2013). We combined walks with overnights, over a period of five days. Having previously boarded our dog and seeing the stress this caused him, having the in-home care was priceless. We came home to a happy dog, which was very important to us. We also appreciated getting periodic updates from the walkers while we were gone, including pictures! We are hooked, and plan to continue to use Worthee for our dog-walking needs.
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!
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!!
Jim provides the creme de la creme in dog training. His knowledge and professionalism are outstanding. He is sincere and takes the time to listen to you and your dog. The changes he has implemented in our dogs life as well as our family is greatly appreciated and worth every dollar spent. Thanks Jim!
Nicole at Great Pet Vacations was a Godsend to our family. Our 14 month old yorkie poo was disobedient and had awful manners. We did not have the skills to change the situation. In June, we did 9 days of board and train with Nicole and we all were amazed at the initial results. Cocoa immediately was more reliable with potty training, would not cry in her cage and did not attempt to escape her pen. In July, she went back for the additional 12 days of the board and train program and can now sit, lay, target, walk on a leash, leave an item alone and is a calmer more obedient dog. Nicole is a miracle worker and takes her time demonstrating how to continue working on reinforcing the behavior with the owners to ensure continued success at home. She spent more than an hour with us at the intake consultation in order to understand our training goals. In addition, she spent more than 2 hours upon exit. It is clear she loves the animals she cares for, treats boarded dogs as her own, and is a superb dog trainer. This experience was every thing I hoped for and more than I expected. We plan to continue training sessions with Nicole and give her our highest recommendation to others.
Super friendly and my dog loves him!! Very patient and calm despite our anxious dog! Just 20 min and we've seen improvements!
Cassie is such an amazing caretaker for our dog. She literally has helped Sully to be able to walk on a leash. She not only really cares for your dog, but she actually cares about their well being. Cassie is the absolute best!!
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!
Jilian has dog-sat for my crazy 65 lb dog Sulley numerous times. She does a great job making sure he is fed, has his pills and is all around loved while his family is gone. She even stays the night when we need her too! We love Jilian!
I love animals. They deserve to be taken care of, fed, groomed, taken outside for walks, and be played with. Just show them affection always.
We specialize in obedience training using positive reinforcement as well as theory based on scientific fact, mainly in the field of animal learning.
I take care of dogs for local pet owners. I will walk, play with, and feed your dog while you're at work or out of town.
I'll make sure your dog is walked, and I take care of what he/she has to do. Feel free to give me a call anytime.
I became a dog sitter/walker in 2008. I love being around animals and get to know each of their different personalities.

We are Chicagoland's premier dog walking company. Dogs Deserve It provides dog walking, pet sitting, and pet taxi services. DDI believes that an appropriately exercised dog is a much happier, trainable, and lovable pet. Thus, we put emphasis on energetic, purposeful, accountable exercise. This is called the Dogs Deserve It difference. About the Dogs Deserve It difference: Leash Etiquette -- All DDI walkers follow "leash etiquette" standards, teaching and reinforcing proper walking techniques and establishing boundaries. The dog is walked to these standards and the technique is shared with the owner. This means that DDI dogs do not aimlessly parade around city streets with limited direction, allowing the dog to pull on the leash and the walker to carry on a random cell phone conversation. Distance Tracking -- All DDI walkers wear a pedometer to track their walking time. There is no more guessing whether the dog has gone around the block or just out the door. DDI walks provide more than just an opportunity for daily output. Anecdotal notes left by the walker also include insight into behavioral and training issues. DDI is the first Chicago-based company to create an innovative walker tracking system. More Than Just a Walk -- DDI time with canine clients is interactive and purposeful. Owners report less anxiety, aggression, and other bad behavior from their canine companion. All these benefits are only available from our service.
I walk the dogs as many times needed. I work with anything. I have to feed them if needed or shower them, and I play with them.
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.
