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!
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! !
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!
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.
I was really nervous when I set out to find a dog trainer for my German Shepherd, but all that was put to ease when Nicole came by for a meet and greet with my dog. She explained to me all of her training methods and answered any questions I had. She was very easy to talk to about any problems I had concerning my dog. And after three weeks of her board and train program, I am wowed! Her results are outstanding. My dog now gives me her full attention, is much more calm, and no longer pulls while walking. I kniw these
Everyone at Dog Training Now was clearly a dog lover. I have littermates, and they were proving troublesome for me to train. Dog Training Now got them to behave themselves and curbed the aggression they were developing. I highly recommend them to get your dogs in line with your expectations.
I could not say enough good things about working with Stephanie when it came to training my dog. I have a rambunctious bulldog who's a year and a half. Nothing but behavioral problems, nipping, chewing things, eating things, and not coming when called. She was always on time, patient with my dog and myself, and made me feel comfortable with having her take care of my pup. I would HIGHLY recommend having her train your dog. I was thoroughly impressed to say the least!! I fully intend on utilizing this training in the future with future dogs as well.
Nicole called me back in a timely matter. She was extremely professional. Her prices were average for this area. I’m from San Diego, where I thought the price would be higher but they are about twice the price here. Shocked me. She was the 5th dog walking service I spoke to, but the 1st I interviewed. My dog took to her immediately! He does not do this to everyone, as he is extremely protective! So, that was a very positive sign. She brought one of her walkers with as they will be helping to walk my dog and he loved her as well! He went on a walk with Nicole already and loved it. When they got back he got a snack and was happy as can be! She also met all 3 of my cats, so if I need her too she can also care for them. I’m very happy I was put in contact with Mutts in A Rutt!
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!
It is obvious that Alec is an animal lover. Conscientious, kind and respectful of the owners and their pets.
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!

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.

You should hire me because I'm young, so of course I'm energetic and active. I love pets. My business would be great because I have no problem walking dogs.
Hi. My name is Bryan Gaul. I am currently in transition with moving in a few months. I have always been around animals my whole life considering my family used to breed dogs. I also own a German shepherd that I have trained since she was 10 weeks old and is now a well-trained registered service canine. I am interested in getting to know you and your pet! Thanks a lot.
I am a dog lover and a true believer in the value of proper pet diet and exercise. I treat all animals as if they are my own, and I strive to build great relationships with my clients and their pets. I work on mornings, and I will often bring my own pup, George along!
I love any furry pet like it were my own. I am looking to expand my company with more furry friends, even if it's overnight or day care. Also, long and fun walk is a must!
