Have a question? Ask a Trainer!

Questions that we will be answered in a future blog. AnimalSensibility will Make Heads and Tails of Your Canine Conundrums.

AnimalSensibility is the place to turn to for all of your dog training answers. Collectively, our staff has more than 75 years of extensive and comprehensive experience in dog training and behavior and of course, total dedication to dogs. We are active members of several professional organizations, regularly attend seminars and conferences and are happily obsessed with obtaining the most up-to-date training and behavior information available — and then passing it along to you. This blog is our opportunity to do that on a much larger scale. Our trainers will share new training techniques, case studies from the many classes and private lessons we conduct each week all over Chicagoland, stories from our time volunteering with rescues and shelters, as well as our experiences with our own dogs.

Coping with the Sounds of Summer

It’s that time of year!  The 5-day forecast shows storm after storm.  And I don’t know about you, but I’m already hearing fireworks around my neighborhood in the evenings.  These are the kinds of noises that turn my dog into a shaky mess, especially when it happens day after day. When our dogs get stressed, […]

Sophie’s Story: What to Do If You Find a Stray

She ran in front of my car on my way to work in Olympia, Washington.  I pulled over to see if the owner of the cute border collie mix was anywhere nearby.  No one knew where she came from.  She was shy at first, but I quickly coaxed her into my car.  She hopped in […]
