When a widespread skunk infestation effecting Chicago suburbs made national headlines, media outlets such as USA Today, NPR, the Chicago Sun-Times, and WLS 890AM with John and Lauren hailed ABC Humane Wildlife Control & Prevention as the front lines of humane defense. Since its founding by university-trained naturalist Garon Fyffe in 1976, the team of animal experts has deftly removed unwanted animals, pests, and birds from homes and businesses. Each of the 35 state-licensed wildlife control experts employs humane processes to sniff out pest problems and solve the underlying issues, such as gaps in the foundation, tree limbs offering easy roof access, or handbills lying around offering employment in return for cheese.

According to Buffalo Grove Countryside, Candy Oppman trained her first dog when she was only 9 years old. Like many people, she grew up and started a family—only her family turned out to be a combination of kids and rescue dogs. After founding her own pet-sitting business, Candy went on to learn about training and animal behavior. These skills would prove useful for her next endeavor: Bark University, Inc.

Inside Bark University's 3,500-square-foot facility, trainers rear canines through a method called "pack leadership"; or as Candy puts it, "training them as a mother dog trains her puppies, in a language they understand." The full-service facility is also open to daycare, where supervised dogs can frolic along the 5,000-square-foot fenced backyard and in the rubber-matted playroom in groups separated by size, temperament, and playing style. They round out their services with grooming sessions and overnight stays—wherein a staffer remains on premises to keep pets safe and see if they start to talk.
