Scott was great. I was having trouble with walking my dog. We went for a long walk and he was not only training my dog but me as well. He gave me a lot of great advice and I am certainly going to work my best to get my dog to walk by my side. Thanks, Scott.
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!
Great dog training service! Adopted a young golden and he had some behavioral and serious obedience issues I wasn't prepared for or new how to deal with. A dog trainer at my work spent numerous sessions with my dog and was unable to deal with or correct any of the major concerns. I found my personal dog trainer in Lombard and the results were remarkable. Another plus is I also received lots of extra tips and advice after the sessions were complete. I have already recommended their service to two other neighbors. Mike R. Bloomingdale, IL
Chris did a great job helping me with my dog Miles. Miles is a much better walker after ongoing leash training and is now interested in walking next to me instead of way in front. I highly recommend using Chris for your dog training needs.
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! !
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 was the best! In 5 weeks (really just after the first lesson!) I had the confidence and tools to maintain my dog’s training. It made the world of difference walking my dog, Barney, each day when he would walk by my side and sit on command versus pulling the leashing and leading me. Barney loves our walks together, and I do too! He sits, stays and comes on command! I can't thank Jim enough for his patience and positive energy. His passion for dogs is obvious and I would recommend him to any/all families in need of training! Katie G.
My husband and I are new dog owners and Lindsey has been a great help to us. We have taken classes with her and she has come to our home for private training. We knew nothing and Lindsey has patiently given us easy to understand instruction on how to be good dog parents. The dogs respond so well to her. She is always available to answer questions. Lindsey is professional, kind to us and our dogs, and has a tons of knowledge to share. We plan on continuing both classes and private sessions.
I can say that our experience with Susan caring for our little Ginger (adopted pooch of 2 years), was truly awesome! From the first meet & greet there was a "love connection". Clearly Susan has a love for dogs as though they were her own. When I returned home from my trip after Susan cared for Ginger, it was quite obvious that she was well cared for and exercised properly. Each time Susan has helped us out while away, Ginger walks around the house looking for Susan once she leaves and whines a little as if she's lost her buddy. I would recommend Susan as a reliable and super friendly dog walker/pet sitter!!
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!
