Susie is an excellent communicator and truly excellent at what she does. She spent an exceptional amount of time with us and our dog. Her knowledge of animal behavior and health is top notch. Our fist session was very informative and she provided very good insight into our dogs challenges. She also recommended a new leash and collar and was equipped to provide those tools to us without an extra trip to the pet store. We received homework and training treats to begin our working with our dog on own. We will definitely be contacting her for additional visits.

Diana understood my issues with the dog and immediately assessed the dogs behavior. A plan was formed. My dog was in her great Highland Park home for 2 weeks. I received daily video, pictures, updates about my dog. Star & the other staff are warm & giving with all the dogs. A good environment for a dog to change. I would recommend them highly. I would send my dog back.

First off, Christy is amazing! She is very professional and cares about dogs deeply. I contacted Christy because I have a 46 pound Pitbull named Layla who is very reactive/aggressive towards other dogs and was seeking training/behavior classes. What Christy found was and reassured me of, was that Layla was not aggressive at all and that as a dog, she did not want to be. Rather, Christy said that she was very insecure of herself and I found that to be very true!! During session 2, Christy brought along her dog Mazzei and after only 3 sessions, Layla was able to co-exist with her PEACEFULLY!! It is truly amazing and I would have never been able to imagine that Layla would be able to be around another dog. Added bonus: Christy massages Layla when she is in distress which teaches her to calm down and it has been a huge help! Christy gives my boyfriend and I expert direction on how to properly train Layla as well as weekly "homework" assignments. Although we are still continuing training with Christy and onto our fourth week, we have found her to be a huge help and couldn't imagine the way Layla is now without her. I HIGHLY recommend Christy for training, behavior modification, and canine massage for your furbabies. You will not regret it!! If I could, I would rate her 10 stars! Do yourself a favor and hire Christy...like NOW! :)

Working with Elena was an amazing experience. Not only is she well informed on dog behavior and training, Elena also answered any questions I had about her methods. She even informed me on how to reinforce her training and tricks I could teach on my own.

Lynn is the kindest, most patient and warmhearted, knowledgeable, and flexible person to work with. She has an exceptional understanding of dogs and their behavior. During our initial evaluation, Lynn gave us a few pointers and our dogs were behaving better. I could not ask for a better person to "train" me in training my dogs.

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

I would highly recommend Julie to any of my friends (and have) that want to train their dogs. I like that she comes to your house. She was very helpful in giving me a different approach to training that is more my style of training. I have started using the techniques she has shown me in the past few days and my dog has shown improvements.

The dog was taken from a backyard breeder and had several social and behavioral issues. Jennifer did great with a unique and difficult situation. Worked well with everyone and helped the dog feel comfortable. Made many steps forward with the puppy.

Laura is magnificent with animals. She treated our dog like she was her own. The care and love Laura provides is 2nd to none. When we're out of town we never have to worry. She always takes her time with the walks and always makes sure our home is locked and secure when she leaves....A+

I used the owner of North Shore Dogs for a couple years before I moved down to the city and I can honestly say from experience that I have never felt more comfortable or confident in a dog walker than I do in NSD. She was always there when needed in a pinch and consistent about when and how long she took my dog out. In addition to the daily walks I also felt very comfortable leaving my home and my animals (cats and dogs) in here care for extended periods of time. I recommend NSD for all of your pet needs! Now I just wish she would extend her services downtown ;)

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 won’t 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 dog’s individual needs. And, she truly cares about you and your dog. When everyone gave up on our dog, she was there. She’s 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. She’s genuine. She will make your dog shine.

About

I would love to help assist fellow dog owners to bridge that gap between master and pack member at an affordable price. To own and care for a dog is already expensive enough, so paying for a professional trainer is often discouraging and can lead to many outcomes including negative behavior in both dog and human, neglect, abandonment, stress in both dog and human etc. My goal is to eliminate anything blocking the natural connection between you and your canine companion.
