Susan gave 101%, doing all she could do to help us. We made progress after the first meeting which required trying to undo some of the damage done from previous dog trainers. She responds to questions immediately via email or calls or text. Susan puts her heart into her work.
Terrific dog trainer for our 7 month old Rottweiler. Kristie saved our human puppy relationship!!!!! Kristie ROCKS!!!
Carolyn is a great and patient trainer. My dog is a work in progress but progress is what we are getting with Carolyn.
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.

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.
Rick is very prompt with returning my messages. He took my dog Cody for three walks now, and Cody really seems to like him, especially when he gets belly rubs. So far, I am very pleased with Rick ' s services.
Lynn is an amazing dog trainer and she has changed our lives in only a few sessions:)
Before we met Anna, my wife and I were ready to surrender our dog Zoey to the Washington County Humane Society. Zoey destroyed many things in our home to include bedsheets, comforters, sofa cushions, draperies, shoes, shirts, a recliner, four leashes and three pet harnesses, and that's not the complete list. Zoey was unable to walk with anything other then a 15' cable. She exhibited intense stress, fear, and anxiety. It was so bad that she would pull, tug, and bite on my carhartt jacket. ( thanks for making such a durable jacket carhartt! Lol). It was literally a tug a war every time we tried to take her out for exercise. Anna, discovered, and taught us so many valuable things about Zoey's condition that we were able to come up with a plan of how to work with in Zoey's comfort levels and now Zoey walks with a leash not a cable! She walks right next to my leg with plenty of slack in the leash, she does not exhibit any signs of anxiety anymore. I believe It is realistic to say Anna saved Zoey, not only from going back to the humane society but due to Anna's experience, education, and knowledge with dog psychology, dog behavior, and her understanding of the breeds; how they act and react in social situations, all this gave Zoey a better more calm and fulfilling life. I call Anna the "Saint of Dogs", and I think she has earned this title in the way she genuinely cares for and about animals and how they interact and coexist with humans. I strongly recommend Anna to everyone in need of dog obedience training and behavior modification training for their four legged friends. Sincerely, James & Aly Krieser
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! :)
Carol is a fabulous trainer and pet caregiver! She has helped me with some tough behavioral problems. She works really hard to help you have a great, healthy relationship with your dog. I have seen her completely turn around some very difficult dogs who would certainly have been put down without her help. She has also watched my dogs many times and I trust her with them 100%!!
We worked with Sarah for 6 weeks with our dog, Diggie, on his visitor anxiety at our home. She was quick to diagnosis Diggie's issues and came every week ready with strategies and tools to help us. Sarah was always professional and knowledgable, answering all our questions, while still making us feel very comfortable with what we needed to do and providing us with feedback. After the 6 weeks, Diggie has come a long way, mastering basic commands that will help his anxiety and a plan to continue his progress. We would definitely recommend her to anyone who loves their dogs, but not their behaviors.
Victoria is one of the most dedicated dog trainers and breeders I know. She has so many top working dogs, If you have a breed that you would like to compete with,Victoria is the trainer, and breeder you would want to go to.
Leslie is by far the best dog trainer we have encountered and we have been through plenty ! She has a unique and uncanny understanding of dogs and their behaviors. She has a quiet yet firm way of training, showing that you don't have to be harsh with your dog to train it. She does a pretty good job of training the owners too! She has also alerted us to health issues with our dog on 2 separate occaisions allowing us to get veterinarian care much sooner. If you are looking for a dog trainer go with Leslie! Couldn't recommend her more!
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 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.
Ellen is one of the most sought-after experts in the North Shore and surrounding suburbs! She is the go-to professional for any and all of my dog-related issues. She is unlike any trainer we've worked with -- she understands exactly what each individual dog needs and trains US how to transform our companions into best-behaved pets possible.
