Dog Talk, LLC, is a dog trainer which provides behavioral training for pet dogs, specializing in senior dogs, puppies, and rescue dogs. Located in Ingleside, IL, this company serves the northwestern suburbs of Chicago, including Long Lake, Round Lake Beach, Round Lake Heights, Pistakee Highlands, Lake Villa, Venetian Village, Hainesville, Grayslake, Johnsburg, Antioch, Ringwood, Grandwood Park, Gages Lake, Lakemoor, McHenry, Holiday Hills, and Channel Lake. The company was founded in 2012 by Lynn Soderlund, who worked in healthcare for 40 years before returning to school to become a professional dog trainer. Soderlund received her degree from the Animal Behavioral College and spends a great deal of time volunteering at animal shelters in order to hone her people and animal skills and to help both people and animals. Soderlund has a focus on senior pet owners and provides a 25% senior discount.

This company provides behavioral training for dogs in order to diminish destructive or anxious behavior and encourage positive, well-mannered, and prosocial behavior. Puppies and seniors and their dogs are special focuses of the program. The first visit is meant to learn about the owner and the dog and to develop a training program tailored to dog and owner. Soderlund typically comes to the owner and works within the owner's availability, working at the owner's home where the owner and dog are most comfortable. Training is an ongoing process, and Soderlund will assist in finding training materials and providing references for veterinarian, dog walkers, sitters, and other support.

Visit the website for Dog Talk, LLC, to learn more about Soderlund, read about dogs who have been in the program, and contact the company to discuss a training program.
