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
From our initial conversation, Leah was friendly, professional, and passionate about Worthee, and providing exceptional services for me and my two dogs. I spent almost a year searching for a dog walking service before I came across Worhee. I was impressed by the thoroughness of Worthee's hiring and training process for it's dog walkers. Leah was extremely patient and even enthusiastic about answering all the questions and concerns I had regarding allowing another person to handle my dogs. She went above and beyond to work with me on a package that would fit my lifestyle and budget. After I had my first meet and greet with the dog walker, I contacted Leah to express a few concerns I had. Leah immediately took the initiative to contact me by phone and listen to all my concerns in depth with a both professional, and down to earth demeanor that made it easy for me to speak openly. She then quickly put my mind at ease and resolve all of my concerns. Leah then went a step further and came along on the next meet and greet and connected me with a dog trainer from Worthee, thereby creating a team of remarkable people to help improve the lives of my dogs and myself. I absolutely love receiving a photograph of my pups on the days of their walks and a nice note about how their walk went. I found that Worthee is without a doubt a unique company. They have set themselves apart by making their client's and client's pet's happiness the number one focus of their business!
Amazing experience so far! The trainer is the best. My dogs have been "trained" by other trainers - it was very negative and unsuccessful. I'm so thankful I found Sunset- very positive and extremely effective.
I hired Kim to help me train my young puppy whom I'd already somewhat spoiled. I was looking for help with puppy biting and jumping, setting rules and making him understand them and sticking to obedience training, which I find sorta boring. Kim was working the second she stepped through my door, showing me how to deal with the jumping and explaining my dog's body signals to me. She was funny and interesting to work with, not only told me what to do but WHY it works and went a step beyond what I'd gotten from trainers in dog class as far as connecting the pieces for me. She demoed every trick and technique she was showing me and made me feel like I can easily incorporate her tips into our daily life. I am very excited that I now have a more interesting approach to training my pup. I was a bit overwhelmed by all the information at the end of our time together and I think Kim could tell because she summed up what things I will need to work on with him. She gave me a clear plan of when I'd hear from her next so we could discuss challenges and progress and gave me options for working for her in the future if I chose to. I am definitely going to work with Kim again to see if I can improve the relationship between my dog and my boyfriend's dog and teach my pup how to nicely walk on a loose leash.
Leslie is a very knowledgeable trainer. She is very outgoing has a good sense of best training method based on particular dog and it's personality. I have used trainers in past with other dogs and Leslie is by far the best trainer I have used. Leslie has turned my good dog to a great dog.
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
Michelle is an absolute wonderful trainer.........my 2 dogs have completely flipped 100% into completely different dogs.......when my 2 dogs first met Michelle they literally wanted to attack/ kill her .......we have been working with Michelle for 3 lessons. Both my dogs now can be approached by Michelle with no problems what so ever......they give kisses ....let her let them .....i can now walk both of them at the exact same time with no issues of pulling me......let me remind you my dogs are 80lbs and 105lbs ......so to be able to now walk both with out them pulling me is a miracle !!! We've had issues with our dog Hayzel being aggressive when it came to meeting new people and Michelle has been working with us to improve that and take it away completely......i am sooooooo Happy to have found Michelle to help me with both of our dogs !!!!! I don't know what I would do with out her ......probably be stressed out big time !!! She's amazing and she knows exactly what she's doing, so if you're looking for someone who is willing to help you please choose Michelle!!! She is our Miracle !!! 🤗🤗
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!
Have not experienced Carols expertise on dog training yet, but thumbtack app wants me to rate anyways. Carol has gone out of her way to contact me for a phone converstion and has been very patient w my unavailabilty. As for thumbtacts rating i would say 3 stars which a 5 star waiting for the app to allow u to schedule these appointments threw the app making all the phone calls a unnessacary step. Hope to see u soon ped pet dog training !
Marcus and Chris were great with our Lab. We had signed her up for a 10 day board and learn training program, and we see a marked improvement in her while walking on the leash - she is more responsive to commands, and it's so much easier to stop her from pulling on the leash when there are other dogs around. The trainers are really nice, and it's obvious they love dogs and love what they do. Would highly recommend them to other dog owners!!!
Sarah worked with me and my 4 year old Yellow Lab on greeting at the door, leash pulling and not jumping on people. To be honest I didn't think much could be done at his age and because no matter what I tried couldn't get him to improve. Sarah was amazing and helped tremendously. She is very calm and patient and was able to give me very simple training tools to use to work with my Lab. And it worked! She clearly loves animals and they really respond well to her. Sarah was always on time, met with me and my dog before training began and clearly explained the process at this initial appointment. I would highly recommend Sarah.
Jennifer is a fantastic dog trainer! Very clear and concise during classes, and definitely has a great connection with all canines! My Fezzik is learning SO much so quickly! :)
I can't say enough great stuff about not only how Kelly is outstanding as a dog trainer but how patient she is training the owner as well. If you want the best for you dog, this is the trainer for you!

Piccalo has been participating in training with Stacy for over a year. Initially he was swimming and on the treadmill for weight loss and fitness. Then group classes to improve his socialization and impulse control. Piccalo is becoming a more balanced dog as a result of the patience and skill of Stacy and the rest of the staff at Four Legs Pets. They treat you like family.
I did board and train with my girl Lucy. It was pricey but it was the best money I ever spent on my dog. I have been to 2 other trainers prior to meeting Kristi. She really helped me with Lucy wanting to drag me on walks and bark and lunge at other dogs and people. I now enjoy walks. If you want training from Canine Composure just bite the bullet and do it. Not only did she fix my dog but she also really helped me.
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!
In the first year of his life, my Great Dane had worked his way through two dog trainers and five dog walkers. The latest trainer- a certified animal behaviorist, had recommended we put out 9 month old puppy on prozac. My husband and I were against the idea, but decided to have the conversation with our vet. He absolutely refused and then recommended we talk to Kyra. Fast forward two years. Thanks to Kyra (and Comfy K9s) we watched our misunderstood, misbehaved puppy grow into a respectful, loving, well behaved family member. When it comes to training, except to work. Kyra takes her role very seriously. She wont let you fail your dog. The number one thing that separates her from any other trainer, behaviorist, dog walker- I've worked with is her passion. She wants to help and she'll get it done any way it takes. She reads. She studies. She asks questions. The training is customized to your dogs individual needs. And, she truly cares about you and your dog. When everyone gave up on our dog, she was there. Shes reliable. I know I can call her anytime and Comfy K9s will take care of us. (They're actually on my emergency contact list!) Kyra is trustworthy. Shes genuine. She will make your dog shine.
Jennifer is a great trainer, very insightful in the ways that dogs think and feel. My dog and I have attended training classes before, but there were a few behaviors I wanted to work on. Working one on one and at home is great, as there are less distractions than working in a large class. In all a very positive experience for my dog and I; he gets rewarded for his good behavior and I'm less stressed because he's doing what I want him to do! Jennifer's positive reenforcement methods are easy to learn and work great!
I offer basic obedience training with emphasis toward off leash obedience. Currently working with private clients in Chicago.
