Scott was very professional and understanding of the issues that I personally was having when it came to training my dog. He spent time with me to make sure I was comfortable and offered good advice.
Sherry has a wealth of knowledge and experience when it came to training my dog as well as teaching me to help train my dog. She is very gentle with her doggy clients yet firm. The classes are honestly fun, informative and practical can't get any better than that.
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 would highly recommend Chris and Takacs Dog Training! We hired Chris to help with our 6 month old wheaten terrier puppy and were more than pleased with the results. Chris was able to customize a training plan based on our family home and not just an off the shelf program. He helped us create an engaging and fun training program that included basic house training, leash and walking control, when&how to treat, controlling temperament and discipline with guests, etc. We will definitely be calling Chris in the future for any and all dog training needs!
Very reliable and professional. She came for a meet and greet before walking our dog and always sends pictures and texts to let me know how it went.
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.
Heather does a great job. She loves my dog like her own and makes sure that she goes out on schedule. She's very trustworthy and reliable.
Lindsey has become my regular dog walker and I plan to use her for overnights as well. She is always sweet, professional and just loves my dogs. And, they adore her! I highly recommend Lindsey.
Entrusting Mr. Barkypants, my first-born son, to a dog walker is akin to how I imagine it might feel to someday entrust a less furry child of mine to a nanny: He/She sure as hell better be committed, conscientious, able to survive blizzards*, and love Mr. Barkypants as his/her own. Using this (perhaps slightly unreasonable) standard, I interviewed many, many dog walkers before I found Walks With Zara Chicago Dog Wlalkers, a dog walking company that Russell and his business partner own and operate. Though I haven't yet had to put them to the blizzard test*, it is clear that Russell is an excellent dog walker and human being. I feel strongly about not having just any random person walk Mr. Barkypants: I've witnessed how some walkers who work at larger operations treat (or rather mistreat) the 5-10 dogs they walk at once. Sadly, it doesn't seem uncommon for some dog walkers, on the north-side at least, to roughly yank leashes or yell and scream at dogs, or to refuse to stop walking to allow one of their charges to use the little dog's room, or to tie dogs up to a post in the park while the walker enjoys a cigarette and long chat with his friends. I am confident that Russell does NOT do this; Mr. Barkypants would probably behave very differently with him than he does. Interestingly, though Mr. Barkypants isn't terribly fond of strangers and he is particularly non-fond of strangers who are male and who wear hats, he took to the hat-wearing Russell like he took to liver treats from the first or second walk on. Russell has a gentle, quiet, calm, non-domineering manner with dogs (and humans, really). He isn't embarrassed about speaking to dogs in goofy voices -- a talent I quite appreciate. Moreover, wrt his human dealings, too, Russell is prompt and as honest as Abe: He lets us know when he isn't able to walk a full hour (because of severe weather or sickness) and deducts from his pay despite our asking him to take the full amount. Rates, by the way, are extremely reasonable for Chicago dog walking, especially since Mr. Barkypants gets Russell all to himself on walks. According to their website, Russell is bonded and insured as a dog walker and is a member of the Association of pet sitters. I can speak with knowledge about Russell's excellent credentials as a dog walker. He *will* treat your dogs with respect and patience -- or at least I'm pretty sure they will based on how they've treated my first born son. I can't recommend him enough.

I love dogs, and my clients will tell you that's an understatement. I love caring for them. I love seeing them happy. I love advocating for them. I love trusted relationships with owners and their pets. That's why I gave up a 15-year corporate America career as a Human Resource professional. I do everything from regular weekday walks, in your home three or four times a day visits for vacations/day out/long weekends, emergency (stuck in traffic, decided to go away for the day at the last minute, etc.) visits, pet taxi to and from groomers/day care and light grooming. You have a pet need, we'll work it out. All visits are customized to meet your needs/wishes and keep your dog safe, healthy and happy. I also perform cat care/visits and other in-home pet care (like iguanas and frogs and gerbils). I work seven days a week and all holidays -- happily. I have tons of local references. Hope to meet you and your fur family soon!
I will walk your dogs, feed them and play with them all in the convenience of your own home. I love animals!
