15th October 2014Tina Edwards dealt with:
Excellent grounding for my puppy. Well explained and easy to follow. Instant results. Also good advice re food.
I recently returned for a 2nd visit to discover what a lovely young dog responding to his owner and thoroughly enjoying his place in the pack hierarchy! We did some more work, teaching him to walk on loose lead (not with treats!) and how to focus and recall when off lead. A delightful way to spend an afternoon with a 5 month old pup.

After just one session we noticed a considerable difference in Alfie's attitude. In fact he seemed quite happy.He seems alot more relaxed in the house and calmer in general. I'm very pleased with things so far and hopefully with a bit more work things will improve even more thanks to kevin.
13th October 2014Andy Waterhouse dealt with:
Andy has worked wonders.
Minnie is an eight month old Cavachon and is very timid by nature to the point that she would not want to go out on the lead for walks.
Although still slightly unsure, Minnie has become a more confident dog and I have become a more confident owner.
I also changed her diet to a raw food diet which has made her more relaxed and calm.
I have worked with Andy on two sessions now and each time he works a miracle.
Thank you Andy.

Kevin gave a really clear description of the method of training used ,and why it is effective. The presentation was excellent and very informative.
His control and confidence with our dogs was excellent, as was his demonstration of the techniques used.
I am determined to make this work for Luca and Meg , as this will make our relationship with them much more positive and rewarding for both dogs and humans.
Thank you very much Kevin, you have enabled me to see a way forward for us into the future.

Lee was very knowledgeable and put us at ease. His suggestions were practical and allowed us to feel more confident in the situations with Wilf that were causing us concern. Thank you.

12th October 2014Tina Edwards dealt with:
Was a fantastic session. Have already seen improvement in Alfie just one day later. Tina was calm, very knowledgable, showed no bias, very patient and understanding.
A young dog with a family who have never owned a dog before, they were seeking guidance and help with the "normal" puppy things that go on! They had already completed toilet training and had well researched the breed they wanted for a family pet and have a lovely little chap in Alfie. I showed them how to teach him not to steal shoes, tea towels etc., to stop chasing the broom and mop and how to improve on the lead and with recall. I can't wait to see him grow into the dog that will complete their family.

10th October 2014Lynn Prentice dealt with:
I consider myself to be fairly knowledgeable about canine behaviour as I have worked in Veterinary Practice for over 20 years but when Murphy started to act aggressively towards other people's pets. I was at a complete loss. Having tried other cheaper behaviourists and got nowhere, I contacted Lynn Prentice as she had been recommended to me by other staff at my Practice. Lynn arrived on time, assessed Murphy and over the next few hours very tactfully assessed all the mistakes I have been making. When pointed out, I became extremely aware of all the things I had been doing to make Murphy feel the need to protect me as I had unwillingly put him in charge. At no time did Lynn ever make me feel bad or embarrassed even though if the truth be told, I should have know better! Lynn suggested many small things I could do to put me back as Pack Leader and within only 2 weeks, the difference in Murphy has been astounding. He obedience level has improved 100 fold and not once, has he shown even the slightest sign of being uncomfortable/aggressive to any other animal. As someone who see's many "professional" behaviourists within my work environment, I can say, hand on heart, try Lynn first as you will not need to go anywhere else. Sometimes, you really do get what you pay for.

Excellent, helpful, Kevin was really approachable and Ted has changed already. Training instructions sensible and easy to follow. We feel reassured and more relaxed.
10th October 2014Alex Fraser dealt with:
We met Alex prior to our first session so we could get to know him, after all it is us who need the training not Dex!
Alex was warm,firm and friendly.Dex responded well immediately.
He is stubborn (Dex not Alex) and as Alex put it...he has trained us well in the 2 years we have had him. He is doing great with going through doors,not pulling on the lead unless he is going to his fave places, then he simply cannot wait to get there. He is slowly realising that we are in control. I am really looking forward to our next visit this Saturday to see how we have progressed. Still some work to do but positive we will get there.
Just been back to see them all for the second session and I was really pleased with how Dexter had improved! Firstly there was no barking when I knocked at the door which was excellent. They also said that he was far less demanding with his toys and demanded attention far less. Both owners now felt they had far better control of him, including calling him back inside when he has been playing in the garden. In the past he used to be very stubborn - but he now trots back in quite happily when called. Dexter used to be very possessive with his toys when out on a walk, but they told me about a walk where he didn't react to another dog who invaded his space when he had his toy. They have worked hard with Dexter and are now reaping the benefits - GOOD WORK!!
