Just added a star: they saw something ( minor skin irritation from home Yard Pet friendly neighborhood park? ) developing that the vet was supprised, they could see it coming long before any symptoms or suffering! Proves re the same , but they do more that the others for your pet & your family! ✓ More...

My family had a much needed educational experience with Jimmy as our puppy, Cam's, trainer. We are 1st time dog owners and we were unaware of how to get a handle and how to discipline our very active puppy. Cam stayed at Carriage Hill and was trained by Jimmy for 3 weeks. During that time Cam learned basic commands as well as how to be disciplined when he displayed bad behavior. Jimmy gave us our own training session to teach us how to enforce the training Cam received. Jimmy is an exceptional trainer for dogs and an exceptional teacher for dogs' owners. He understands dogs' behavior and understands how to convey his training methods to the dogs' owners. More...

Jimmy at Carriage Hill was great with our Australian Shepherd puppy. She’s 12 weeks old and can sit and come to her name. Jimmy taught us how to stop her puppy biting too. We will definitely bring her back when she’s a little older to teach her how to properly walk on a leash. Great basic puppy training. Highly recommended! More...

Jimmy is an amazing dog trainer! He worked with my lab puppy and turned her into a well behaved girl. He is very knowledgeable and clearly loves the work he does and his “students” love him back. Thanks Jimmy!

We've not had a puppy for many years. We decided to get a doggie and it's been the best choice. However, our new puppy is anything but easy. I was at my wit's end with our new bundle of joy. I was referred to Carriage Hills and it was the best decision made. Jimmy our trainer has shown us there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Our pup was literally the worse dog in the neighborhood, dog park and beaches. Now we can actually have a good time when out. We will continue training to reinforce what was learned. I highly recommend Jimmy and Carriage Hills for dog training. More...

Excellent experience with Jimmy and the training program! Our Bruno is a new dog!!! He was well cared for and super excited every time we brought him. They also did an amazing job with grooming. I can’t say enough good things about Carriage Hill. We won’t take our Bruno anywhere else. More...

Carriage Hills was absolutely terrific for our puppy. Everyone at Carriage Hills knew who she was and legitimately cared for her. Our individual lessons with Jimmy were exceptional, he gave her so much confidence and we couldn’t be happier. Jimmy realized our puppy was not your average pup and completely customized his lessons for her so that she would be able to thrive. We couldn’t recommend Carriage Hills enough! More...

Jimmy and Carriage Hill have gone above and Beyond our expectations with the training of our pup, Molly. Jimmy has taken the time to show me what I need to do and always makes sure I understand. He has a true passion for what he does and puts in the time and dedication necessary to successfully train our pup and other more difficult dogs. The folks running the kennel have always been good to our older dog that passed away in November and to our young puppy now. They treat them and us like family. More...

I took my dogs to be boarded. I never boarded my 8 year old dog and brought my new puppy as well. The first thing I saw when I came was Jimmy training a dog. I had a new puppy and loved what he was doing so I immediately signed up! He is really amazing with the dogs and the training has really saved us with our new pup acclimating with the older dog. I highly recommend Jimmy for training and will continue with him as the pup gets older. More...

Within one week of puppy school our 12 week puppy has shown noticeable training recognition. She enters happily and Jimmy is fantastic. Clean, caring and professional. Not many places provide individual attention like Carriage. Jimmy shares fantastic videos and explains what he has covered really well. Great communication and insight. More...

Clean, professional, gentle, knowledgable.... Carriage Hill does an amazing job on our labradoodle!! She gets matted no matter how often we brush (or don’t brush) her. She comes back from her groom looking perfect. She’s always so willing and happy to go in back with them when we arrive at Carriage Hill! Working on ‘fancy’ fur takes professionals and their employees are phenomenal! I’m so happy we started bringing her there!!! More...

Our dog Riley is 2 1/2 and was exhibiting some Protection Aggression and we really didn't know how to handle the situation. My vet suggested Jimmy Cocallas could help us. We enrolled Riley in the 7 week program where he would be working with Jimmy one day a week. Of course WE needed as much training as Riley did maybe more. After each session, we met with Jimmy to observe what he had worked on and showed us how to reinforce it at home. The results have been amazing for Riley and us. We would highly recommend Jimmey. If you simply need basic or advanced training, or if there is a problem with behavior, Jimmy is your guy!!! Jean, Hank and Riley More...

We have been immensely rewarded in multiple ways through the years with Carriage Hill Kennels.As breeders, these folks flat-out know what they are doing in breeding dogs for temperament. Our first dog from C.H.- Penny, is a Labradoodle, and just a wonderful, gentle, loving soul. (we knew this already but when a local dog walking service had a tenured walker specifically save Penny for his last day's walk and write comments on our white board at home that our dog was the highlight of his day, it made our hearts swell.) Our second dog Goldie, is a Goldendoodle, that just joined our family back in March and is also an amazing, loving, and smart puppy.We are at the tail-end of our dog obedience training now with Goldie at C.H. and have been working with their Lead Trainer, Jimmy Cocallas. This guy is nothing short of amazing! (Truly, the Dog Whisperer!)We have been reinforcing his training techniques at home and have seen consistent and steady improvements each week with Goldie. If you are looking for just a canned, vanilla obedience training class for your dog, do not even think of looking this dude up. If you want someone that will get to know both you (your training style, weekly time commitments, etc.) as well as your individual dog-based upon their unique personality, proclivity by breed, etc., this is the guy you need! (Yeah-he's that good!) I could tell immediately, that this guy is into his training. He's passionate about it and it shows. He tapes his training session with you, so you have a resource to use throughout the week (very helpful) and is willing to help you work through individual behaviors with you each week. Plainly put, he is an invaluable resource!Thank you Jimmy. You Da Dog Man! :) More...

We had great experience at Carriage Hill with our 5 month old Golden Retriever puppy. Jimmy worked with Sammy daily for 3 weeks. Jimmy is a great trainer and communicator. He would send videos as well as hands-on teach as what Sammy learned. Sammy loved going every day. We will continue training with Jimmy in the future! More...

Had a great experience at carriage Hill kennels with my six month old golden doodle. We did puppy imprinting and basic obedience with Jimmy. Jimmy worked with my dog and then took the time to explain to me what he did. I am very happy with the results and we will be going back in the fall for more training. We have also done grooming and the staff is wonderful. I was very worried about his first grooming and they patiently listened to me. My pup is always happy coming or going! Definitely recommend!

Carriage Hill is my dogs home away from home! I picked her up from her first overnight stay and she didn’t even miss me! My puppy has enjoyed everything Carriage Hill has to offer.

I’m extremely happy and my puppy is too! More...

As a first time dog owner I took my 4 month old rescue puppy to Jimmy at Carriage Hill.

We have taken 2 German Shepherds here over the past 25 years. They provide excellent care and have superior experience and knowledge.

We’ve had nothing but great experiences at Carriage Hill Kennels. We chose to board our 8 month old black lab there over the holidays, as it was recommended by our veterinarian as a good place for boarding. We saw that they also offer dog training and decided to try the 7-week program. Jimmy was great! He took time each week to explain and demonstrate what he worked on with our dog in the trainings so that we could practice at home. Jimmy taught us how to effectively communicate with our dog. He was able to answer all of our questions, offering solutions for some specific issues we were having at the time. Our family benefited greatly from his knowledge and continues to use all that we learned in the program. Our dog is now much calmer, knows the behavior that we expect, and responds when given commands. If you are considering a dog training program, we would highly recommend Jimmy’s at Carriage Hill Kennels. More...

Jimmy did an excellent job training our stubborn six month old puppy. After each training session, he explained exactly what he did and the best ways to practice at home - without using treats! Now our dog sits and stays on command, no longer pulls when walking on her leash and is more enjoyable to be around. More...

We had our dog boarded, and trained here. It was an amazing experience! The boarding was great with lots of activities for the dogs like playtime and swimming to keep them active. The training was even better! Jimmy was outstanding! Our dog was a little wild and hard to control at times, but Jimmy changed all that. He’s a true dog whisperer!! After only a couple weeks of training, Jimmy had our dog well trained and not acting out anymore! He was sitting and staying, laying down and staying, he learned drop it and leave it, come and fetch. Our dog was also not jumping up on us anymore, which was a big plus. Thanks to Jimmy he is a much calmer dog. Not only did he train our dog very well, but he also taught us how to continue training him at home. I highly recommend getting any dog trained by Jimmy or boarded at Carriage Hill Kennels! More...

Carriage Hill is fantastic! We have a not so mild tempered Shepherd that needs a lot of play and love while we're out of town. Carriage Hill does a great job with their heated kennels, pool and play time. He gets a bargain bath on the way out and is calm yet happy to see us! Great prices, awesome place!! More...

They did a great job watching my dog. I was nervous leaving him but he was happy and healthy during his boarding and they did a great job grooming him. I could not be happier with the boarding experience. I do have one critique, I wish they would invest in webcams so that people can see their dogs when boarding. More...

Jimmy took our dog at nearly a year and helped us to help her curb bad habits and become a better behaved, pleasant dog to be around. She’s a very sweet German Shepherd But because of her size, she can be intimidating. Jimmy’s professionalism and knowledge have been of great benefit to all of us and we highly recommend his skills as a trainer—not only that, he really enjoys working with dogs and it shows!!Not sure why this was posted w/o my name but this is from Diane Rand.

Jimmy's puppy training class exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend it. My husband and I enrolled our 3 month old yellow lab to Jimmy's puppy training class. Jimmy worked with her on recall, sitting and laying down. He also helped build her confidence by exposing her to different surroundings and other dogs. We noticed a huge difference in our puppy's responsiveness to our commands (responding to sit and recall). His training made life with our puppy more manageable and enjoyable. Jimmy also sent us videos of her training sessions and worked with us on how to best train our puppy. He took the time to answer our questions and give us tips. We trust Jimmy and will definitely be enrolling our puppy in his obedience class. More...

Going on 10 years 5 dogs 1&3 @ a time, clean, dog comfort and " a home away from home us!" The jump and run in, hesitate to say bye and "thank" when they leave. POOL & aqua guides love the pets ( "Dog bubblers" ha ha. But seriously , careful people and pets MUST. be healthy & vet regular ( shots & inoculations) no stray / dumped sick dogs allowed! Good place going rates , maybe a little higher, but long customers ( with behaved pets) get a extra/late day regularly. VET on call if your a distance or SUDDEN problem for advisement and treatment of transport. Wear your " 3D glasses" and you'll see "TRUST", "CARE", " LOVE" and happy friendly pets your pedal can be friends with!They come home: well fed & rested but us ally want to go to sleep and dream about their adventure but wake up "AT HOME" and ready to love you again as before.Can I say more?

After a minor incident at home, which lead to a costly window repair, I reached out to Carriage Hill in an attempt to line up a one-on-one training program for my Wheaten terrier, Fabio. Fabio came to me from Fetching Tail Adoption of Itasca, has been in my home for roughly a year, so it was timely to re-align certain of his behaviors that emerged over the last few months. Trainer Jimmy Cocallas introduces him to beginning training with perfect results! Terriers can be stubborn, slow to respond to a command, but with Jimmy’s firm, yet patient direction, Fabio transformed from a misbehaving teen to a dog I can be proud of. He made a weekly outline for me, effective and easy to follow, and introduced the pronged collar as tool to eliminate his constant pulling. I would recommend Jimmy to anyone who is looking for a top notch trainer, from a family with a new pup, or to anyone with a mid-aged dog. More...

Trust them more that yourselves: flexible , economically fair and EMPATHIC! SHE',S HAPPIER TO GET THERE THST TO COME AWAY! Not home but away: then at home she happy happy : sometimes we go out of town from there: she love the ride but has to go to a unknown kennel, w think is the best, but she has to go there!No pals, yes pals, she recognizes them and so do they.A lot like :" CHEERS" where everyone knows your name! A froset to explore, a pool to swim in and a great summer haircut ( Alaskan / Siberian Husky) so she's cool and likes the people. Clean, professional, knowledgeable!Plus after 15+ years , 4 pets , many long trips when all the KENNELS become exposed to flu, disease, infections never once here! Once they spotted the begining of a problem : the vet was amazed the predicted a " hot spot" before we did and BOTH told us how to avoid them! Someday we may have to beg her to : " Lassie come home" she likes them so much! We love her but they are like family to her. I'd call ahead until they know your schedules because they are a very popular home away from home! Add a " play time " or a " swim" your pet will love you more! More...

My experience with the folks at Carriage has been excellent both for baording and training. I feel completely comfortable leaving my 7 month old puppy there for extended stays. When I drop her off she loves it! The staff at Carriage is always courteous, helpful and very knowledgable.
I took advantage of a training program offered by a young man, Jimmy, and it was great. He worked wonders. I cant thank him enough. I now have an obedient puppy and a ton of knowledge so I can continue reinforcing what she has learned. It is wonderful having a well trained dog. I highly recommend Carriage.

We brought our 8 month old male Doberman Pinscher for the 7 week training program after a frustrating experience with another obedience training group. The one-on-one training with Jimmy Cocallas was just what our dog needed. Jimmy had a natural connection with our dog and his method works. We saw amazing improvements within the first session and our dog continued to make progress throughout the following weeks. We got the results we were hoping for and happy to see our dog thrive with everything he has learned.
We will continue to come to carriage hill for advanced training with Jimmy, swimming, and boarding.

We are extremely pleased with the level of care that Gilson receives at Carriage Hill. Everyone of the staff is genuinely a "dog person" and they are truly there to take care of our loved pets. Yes, at the end of the day, it's a kennel. But they really do a great job. I have some specific experiences to share: When I toured the actual kennel area before dropping off the first time, I did not smell any urine or feces at all. Yes - it is a kennel with chain-link fencing and all, but it was clean -- much cleaner than I anticipated. After our first vacation with Gilson at Carriage Hill (it was a 2 week trip), upon getting him home, I noticed his elbows were a bit raw. I felt funny calling - but did so anyway. The response from Jackie was very caring and very supportive for me to have placed the call. They do give them blankets to have in their kennel, but she counselled me for the next drop-off to remind them of his elbow situation, and they would give him extra bedding, and to give extra watch. We have not had one problem with raw elbows in the 2 years since. As we have returned for subsequent drop-offs, my dog does not cower or try to avoid going in - he just walks right in (and he does have a cowering reflex to uncertain situations). I had one of the owners come up to me once upon pick-up and tell me how much he enjoys my dog, with specifics -- which means to me that he was interacting with my happy, well-adjusted Gilson, not a sad and bemoaned dog. When the dog-flu hit Chicago, we were soon going out-of-town. The staff was VERY specific in the questions that they asked before allowing Gilson to come to stay in order to protect and ensure the health of their kennel. And as soon as the vaccination was available - they required all dogs that boarded there to have the flu vaccine. They are very committed to the health of all dogs that are in their care.And finally - our most recent trip occurred over the 4th of July. Sadly, Gilson has developed a noise fright in the past year to thunderstorms. We were VERY concerned about the fireworks and their impact on him. We were in a high-level of contact with Francine and Chris - and their support of our concerns went way way above the call of duty. We are so grateful to them both.At the end of the day, we know that we have a safe, caring, loving situation for Gilson to stay in when we are not home. We feel that we have partners in both resource and support as we lead our dog's life. We highly recommend your consideration of Carriage Hill Kennels for your doggie needs. More...

The facility and staff are so nice that we travel from Libertyville to leave our springer for longer than a week each time. Our Hunter is always very happy, very well groomed and in one peace on the way out. He always has lots of fun. We highly recommend this kennel to anyone! More...

My daughter purchased a English Springer Spaniel from Bob and she couldn't be happier. The process of buying him was easy from the beginning to the end. He is now 1 years old , well trained, and loves everyone!! She's already talking about purchasing another English Springer Spaniel from Bob in the near future. We are pleased with the experience my daughter had that we are now looking into buying a dog. More...

Carriage Hill Kennel has been our baby Titos second home for the last 5-6 months now. We take him to Carriage Hill M-F from about 8am-6pm. We LOVE this place for many reasons, but mostly because of the people. Francine, Bob, Jackie, Chris and the rest of the staff are just wonderful. They treat you like family and they are truly caring people. My husband and I feel very lucky to have found Carriage Hill Kennel. One of our favorite things about Carriage hill is the doggy swimming pool. They have an amazing indoor pool and Tito (our 16 month old Rottweiler) just loves it. He was hit by a car a few months ago and after we put him in swimming classes with Carriage Hill, he started walking and running like he did before. Prior to swimming, he would start to limp after as short period after running or just playing. We have seen a major improvement and honestly have not seen him limp after about 2-3 weeks into his swimming classes. I highly highly highly recommend looking into their swimming classes if your pet is in need of some exercise or has problems walking or running. We have also had Tito groomed several times and they've done a great job every time. The cost for their services is very fair and extremely worth it. Especially when you have the peace of mind that he's being taken care of by such wonderful people. You really can't put a price on that. Thank you for caring for my Tito and all the other cutie pies everyday. More...

Im finally saying thanks to Chris for the Labradoodle we acquired from him last fall. You guys did a great job in all the puppy raising before you let us take him home. We even tried to take him home early and you refused. Oliver, as we now call him, has no problems interacting with people. Holding his tail, paws, ears doesn't even cause a flinch in him. Taking food or toys away? No problem. No aggression whatsoever. Well behaved with other dogs,kids and strangers. Overall a great dog! More...

I have been taking my dog to Carriage Hill for about 7 years (after trying a couple places that weren't good) and I have had a great experience so far! The staff clearly cares about the animals, and are obviously dog-lovers themselves.  The fact that it is a third-generation family business reassures me that the owners are completely invested in the success of the business - which translates to well-cared-for pets and happy pet owners. I always feel safe leaving my dog there.  Plus, just a few years ago they renovated and expanded the facility (including the pool, if you are so inclined), so it's nicely updated. As evidence of their great customer service, several years ago when my dog came home from the kennel with a form of kennel cough not covered by the vaccine, Carriage Hill sent out a letter to all customers who had boarded a dog there during a certain time period. They explained that this was a different type of kennel cough that had been running rampant through the local IL/WI area (they were right; it was all over the local news); they apologized; AND offered a free bath to any dog who had been affected.  Instead of denying that she caught it at their kennel and ignoring their customers, they were completely proactive.  This made me a MORE loyal customer. Go check out the facility and see for yourself! More...

I am so glad I found Carriage Hill Kennels!  This place is GREAT!Francine, Bobby & Jimmy have been so wonderful with our dogs.  They are a 3 generation family business, they love what they do and you will feel that the first time you meet them. They have a wonderful balance of being professional but treating their customers (pets & owners) like lifelong friends.I found this kennel about 2 months ago.  I had never boarded any of my dogs ever & was a little nervous.  I have a 12 year old Boston Terrier and a (now) 8 month old Rottweiler puppy.  I needed to board both dogs for a week while on a family celebration vacation.  Our Rottweiler is a high maintenance dog, who has needed much socialization & work overcoming anxiety (grrr).   Francine, Bobby & Jimmy have been amazing at helping us with her!  They have been reassuring & patient & just have understood her from day 1.  We loved that they could work on training with her while we were away.  I also like that the kennel was clean, had heated floors & large sized kennels. When we brought both the dogs home they were in great spirits, happy & healthy & our Rott was much more confident. We have continued training sessions with them & I am very happy with the results.  We recently had the dogs boarded there again and it was so nice to know that they were in good hands & they love going there. I highly recommend this kennel for boarding, grooming, swimming and training.  In addition to being great at what they do, I find them to be reasonably priced.  Additionally, they are very no nonsense, they are not going to try sell you a bunch of frivolous products you do not need. How refreshing! More...

We just picked up our two dogs from two weeks of boarding and they could not have been happier.  We had them bathed before they came home so they smelled good and didn't have any of the signs we have seen in the past from a negative boarding experience.  Thank you Carriage Hill Kennels!  Our two dogs will definitely be back.

Two words: swimming doggies.Seriously: they have a swimming pool for the dogs they board and groom.  How much more invested could they be in puppy health and wellness  They do a great job with the grooming too; we've been bringing our dog here for years and are always happy with his cut.  And he actually likes coming-- something we never saw with any other groomer!

We've gone to Carriage Hill for almost 20 years. They took care of our first dog Spunky who died five years ago and they take care of our little Hotshot. Fran and her team are amazing. And today I think they are more amazing. There was a notice about micro-chipping when I picked up Hotshot today. I realized that I had to contact the microchip company b/c we just moved. Bobby said he would get the number off of the microchip for me. I called the company and guess what? I had never registered Hotshot. Thanks to Bobby and the rest of the CHK team for putting up that notice. Without it, my micro-chipped dog could have been lost and the company would have had no way to contact us. Kudos to everyone at CHK - we're huge fans!!! More...

I can't say enough good things about the people at Carriage Hill Kennels.  I took my dog there right before Christmas and somehow, some way, I managed to lose my keys between the car and the desk at Carriage Hills. Chris, the owner, offered to drive me home, offered to let me borrow his truck to go home and check for extra keys.  Long story short, Chris ended up coming back to the kennel to let me back in after hours, and we found my keys.  The entire staff was so nice to me and tried to help me in so many different ways.  If they take this good of care of their customers, imagine how much care they provide to your pets.  This was our first time at Carriage Hill and we wont be going anywhere else!

I took my 5.5 month old Black Lab here for a swimming session and was very pleased. The facility is very clean. He was accompanied by a trainer who went in the pool with him which was very helpful since it was his first time swimming. He took to it like a natural.The people here are very friendly and helpful with questions I had regarding my new pup. I plan on bringing him here for training during their next session and will board him here when needed(I will update on these topics when I have tried them).I will be making this a weekly visit for the pool.

Love, love, love this place.  This is a family business, run by a brother and sister whose parents passed it down to them.  Now even their children work there.  These people live and breath pets.I have been taking my wheaten terrier here for grooming every two weeks for seven years now.  Love the way they trim his butt.  He looks so cute walking away from you.  That's not to say that occasionally we don't get a trim that's not exactly right.  We do.  But never too short, so they always can take him right back and fix him up.  And they do it happily.Also, we probably have the only swimming wheaten and he enjoys the indoor swimming that they have there.

I have brought my 1-year old dog to Carriage Hill Kennels for grooming twice so far. I really love this place. The facility is clean and the staff and owners are friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable about dogs. I love the way they groom my dog -- haircut as specified, nails and sanitaries trimmed, ears cleaned, and glands expressed. Their prices are comparable to other grooming places. They will have you drop your dog off early between 8 and 9 am and give you a time when your dog will be ready for pick-up (usually mid-afternoon). Meanwhile, I get to run errands and do the many other things I cannot otherwise do when my two young dogs are home with me.  I've also brought in my new 4-month old puppy on my second visit for a puppy trim and coat de-shedding and the owner offerred suggestions on what she thinks is best for my puppy. She also told the groomer to make sure to take my puppy out sometime that afternoon and to feed her.I have not inquired about their boarding services as I haven't had the need for it so far. More...

We have used C.Hill for our dogs' grooming for over a decade. Our beloved Dobbin was a Lhasa mix rescue who had very quiet but firm opinions, rejected 2 other facilities in Glenview after 1 visit each. When he developed diabetes, special allowance was made & he was ready for pickup in 2 hours, looking as beautiful as ever.
We now have another rescue, Fritz, who is as feisty as Dobbin was laid back. I held my breath because he's not easily directed, but after picking him up, I found him tail wagging & happy. And, again groomed beautifully. The owner gave me two suggestions to help our boy ajust.
Carriage Hill is clean, well run and professional, in my opinion.

I boarded my leash aggressive and whiny German Shepherd for 3 weeks while traveling.  Not only was she well taken care of, she seemed well adjusted and loved when I picked her up.  While no place is as good as staying at home, I have found comfort in knowing that my dog is well taken care of and comfortable while I am away at Carriage Hill Kennels.  The price for boarding and grooming is fair and I feel that I am getting exactly what I am paying for.
