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.


Home for the Holidays

Now that the holiday season is in full swing, a lot of us will be going home to see family and friends and bringing your pet with you might not be an option. Choosing the right type of care for your pet while you’re traveling can be one of the tougher decisions to make as […]

How to Handle Off-Leash Dog Surprises

I live in a neighborhood where there is a bit of a cultural difference in regards to the ownership, care and training of dogs. Basically, there are lots of off-leash dogs roaming around, and from what I’ve seen, the training styles employed are quite different than what we practice at AnimalSense. A few days ago […]

Move Along: How to Get your Dog Motivated to Walk

Recently I’ve come across some dogs who, for whatever reason, just refuse to budge when going on walks. It struck me as so odd since most pups LOVE to go for strolls, especially on beautiful summer days like we’ve been having in Chicago lately. Here’s the scenario: I’d get rover leashed up, he’d seem somewhat […]

First Doggy Date Etiquette

The dating scene can be pretty scary sometimes, especially those dates where you find out that the person sitting across from you doesn’t like dogs. Yikes! Then again, sometimes you find that fellow dog-lover, and you think “Great!” Even better when that potential love interest has a pup of their own. You start to daydream […]

The Break Up

Just as children get caught in the crossfire of divorcing parents, so too can dogs when their owners split up. It’s just one of the delicate matters that need dividing when two people choose to go their separate ways. In the last few months, I’ve known several couples that have called it quits, and although […]

Ten Tips for Holiday Pet Pics

The holidays are upon us and among the myriad of things on your To Do list, sending out cards to friends and family might be a high priority. I always like to take a festive picture of my dog to use as the front cover because: A) I’m a borderline crazy dog lady and B) […]

The Pains of Leaving the Pooch

In a few days, for the first time since I’ve had Otis in my life, I’m leaving him at home and going on vacation. We’ve never left him before, any place that we’ve traveled we’ve been able to take him with us and while I’m so excited to go to our tropical destination, I’d be […]

Dressing Up Your Pup

Halloween is soon upon us. Store fronts are putting up their spooky decorations, pumpkin flavored foods and beverages line the shelves at the grocery store, and bite-sized candy is on sale at CVS. Most important, however, is what you’ll decide to dress up your dog as! If you’re anything like me, one of the joys […]

The Stinky Dog

Sometimes, my dog smells really bad. Not for lack of grooming, or teeth brushing, though. My dog farts. A LOT. The kind of farts that will clear the room or peel the paint off the walls. There are times when we’re sitting on the couch together, and I actually have to light a match or […]
