Miss Susie was very knowledgeable and genuinely caring about both the puppy and the family. She offered a variety of hands on techniques that we are able to use from the very start. I would highly recommend her services and we will use her again as a resource for dog training.
She is very professional and our pups listened and got a long with her very well. She gave us valuable insight and generally cares about our pups. She also is always looking for ways to improve her training.
I have a husky who was rescued as a stray... Meaning we had to start at "hasn't even been trained how to sit". Not only did I feel valued and understood by the trainer, but the services here have helped me and my doggie bond and develop a mutual respect for each other too. The prices are definitely fair and scheduling is made easy. I used services for beginning/obedience-type sessions as well as kennel training/separation anxiety. You can't go wrong here for any of your training needs!! I can't say that enough. :)
I took my dog aggressive shepherd Blue to offleash because I was tired of being pulled down the street when he saw another dog it was very frustrating and embarrassing. Now after doing the 8 lessons I couldn’t be happier! I can walk past any distractions and Blue doesn’t bat an eye! Couldn’t recommend them enough!
Here is a little history, we adopted a tree walker coonhound from a shelter in Tennessee and brought him home to Wisconsin. The first month was ok as we all got adjusted to each other. There were counter surfing, mouthing and dominance issues from the beginning. We knew we had a stubborn ALPHA, ALPHA male but we were working through it. The dog and I had an altercation over a rawhide where he became very aggressive and tried to bite me. From that day forward he would try to attack me unsolicited any time he saw me or heard my voice. It got so bad I would have to lock myself in a room so my wife could let him out. I am 6',1" tall and 220 lbs, this is the first time in my life with all the dogs I've owned that I was afraid of a dog. We talked to many behaviorist's whom all said we should just rehome the dog and had no answers for us. I was determined not to give up and make things work because I knew that this was a good dog deep down inside. That is when I was recommend to Shelly at "Hair of the dog that bit ya". I got a great feeling from her right away on the phone and was intrigued by her explanation of how she handles her training of dogs (it was a much different approach from what I was hearing from everyone else). This is a large breed hunting dog who is aggressive and she knew exactly how to handle it. She came out the very next morning to a situation where everyone in the house was uneasy and afraid of this dog who now was in total control of the situation. Long story short after two hours Shelly had broken the dog had him taking commands from both my wife and myself. We felt like we had our lives back and believe it or not the dog seemed happier that he now knew the pecking order. This was truly a Christmas miracle for my entire family. The picture attached is from the same day where that morning my dog wanted to kill me and what he was like by the afternoon! I cannot thank Shelly enough and I am so excited for our new life together with Bohannon. Todd & Shelly Bloom
As a first time dog owner I have learned that the process to a well behaved dog is the training of both the dog AND the owners. Our rescue one year old Birder Collie/Australian Shepard mix was pretty well behaved indoors and in our yard but had a very aggressive issue when meeting new digs and people. He could not be trusted to not bite either. After one session with Lynn and homework he was 100% better. After the second session I have little fear of having a problem. Buddy still needs some work however the change has been dramatic. Lynn comes to your home with written plans and homework assignments. Hire Lynn, you will not be disappointed. Jeff Wadsworth
I'm convinced we have the best dog walker ever! She is so sweet and so great with our dog. Our dog (who judges people) immediately warmed to her. Even when we have had to work late or something came up she was there to check on him as a favor to us. Words cannot express how much we appreciate and are thankfully to have found her, we owe much to her!
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!
I’m looking forward to working with Sev’s Smarty Paws. Tracy was helpful and professional from her first contact with me. Our consultation showed me she is exactly what we are looking for in a trainer for our dogs.
I'll make sure your dog is properly taken care of like it was my own. I need at least a business day to respond.
Are you busy with work, and errands? Do you feel that your four-pawed family member needs some exercise, but you can't find enough time in the day? I am here just for you. If it's a play day at the dog park, or a quick 15 minute bathroom break, I am here to help you keep your pets happy!
I handle dog training in McHenry and Chicago based on customer satisfaction. Try before you buy. Make your canine a Smart K9.
My 3 dogs look and smell great after getting groomed here. One of my dogs is part Schnauzer and we always get him a schnauzer cut, which isn't easy to do, I've been told. She did outstanding. I also have a yorkie who was dealing with an injury and she was able to work with him. After a bad experience at PetCo and having visited multiple dog grooming facilities, I am beyond pleased and satisfied with my experience at Deja Vu's K-9 Corner. I will be going back to get my dogs groomed here.
I am a dog sitter and dog walker. I have loved watching dogs for a long time. I have 1 of my own. I have trained it very well. It used to be scared of walking outside, and now, loves it. My goal is to make your dogs happy, take them on walks, and watch them when you need someone to watch them. I have always been a dog lover and always will.
My personality and vibe stand out because any dog I have met are very loving with me and that's because I can communicate with them in calm manner. That makes it easier to play with the dog and show it affection.
