Browse these german shepherd trainers with great ratings from Thumbtack customers in Kenosha.
Learned a lot from the first session. Realized I had approached training our German shepherd in the wrong way, and learned techniques to get him on the right track.
We have only had 2 sessions but Carolyn has given us good tips to get started with our dog's training. She is very professional, prompt and calming with our dog and us.
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.
We sent our dog Trapper for training with Diana. He is an 8 month old German Shepard. We sent him for basic puppy training and he is doing very well now that he is home. We wanted a program that was more personal and one on one, as we have heard horror stories about boarding kennels. It was great to know he would be in a loving home with other dogs rather than a scary leaky basement kennel area. Also the trainer kept in contact daily with updates and tips to caring for him once he was home. All in all our experience was great! We highly recommend YBFDH!
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 !!! 🤗🤗
Elena is an absolute professional. Her varied experience with different training methods as well as her biology degree make her, in my opinion, the perfect well rounded dog trainer. Elena is concerned with all aspects of your dogs emotional and physical health and with all those tools in her tool box she is an fantastic resource. My dog really enjoys working with Elena and doesn't try and run and hide when she comes over! The ultimate sign of a dog trainer who intuitively cares about your dog, and your dog knows it.
I wanted to say something about Dilis Dog Academy and their approach. I have been to the “box stores” to learn training, but let’s face it, you get what you pay for. I got a certificate that said my dog passed, but I couldn’t get him out of the store! I shopped around and looked at the qualifications of the trainers available to us here in the Chicagoland area. That provided real world training with effective and lasting results. Tom has 12 Standard Commands that if your dog learns, then you are awesome. His Three Critical Commands held to the standard of the Four Variables of Proofing (can you tell that I tried to learn as much as I could, and how he tries to instill this in us?) can be life savers. You want results, hire Dilis Dog Academy and commit to the training
Stephanie’s knowledge of my dogs aggressive behavior alone was so impressive that I immediately knew she was the right trainer to handle My dogs fear and aggression issues. I’d never heard of day training and couldn’t believe that My dogs aggression could be fixed in such a short time, but her knowledge was impressive. I’m both amazed and so grateful for the work she did with my dog. The only downside was that it was a pricier than some of the other companies I talked to, but totally worth the investment in the end! I would and have recommend her to anyone looking for a trainer!! Thank you Stephanie!
I have spent a year looking for a good trainer for me and my dogs. I found one when I contacted the Dog Life Center. The trainer was excellent. Just what my dogs and I needed.
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.
Sarah is a joy to work with. You can tell she truly loves dogs, and knows what she is doing. She has great experience, comes prepared, and doesn't have to stick to the same old same old if something in particular doesn't seem to be working. I am going in for a shoulder surgery in January, and I can trust my almost 100 pound puppy won't be pulling my arm off after I get it fixed. And this is only after 3 sessions! But as she says, you need to be willing to work with the dog and give the time it takes to train him/her. She is by far one of the best train the trainers I have ever gotten to work with.
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

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!
