2nd October 2016Tina Edwards dealt with:
Tina was amazing, haven't stopped telling friends about her. Tina showed me how to divert Archie's attention back to me and today we went to Knowle Park with my sister and her three dogs and he was so well behaved. Back at her house in a strange environment he did exactly as he was told and remained calm! Keeping up the training as so worth it.
Not a young dog, Archie had been attacked and hurt by a larger dog after which he had become fearful and defensive with other dogs. I showed his owner how to build his confidence that she could make the decisions and keep him safe and he's now well on the way to letting her do this job not him. I bet he's really grateful as he is basically a very gentle boy.

Training has been going ok getting better each day.
29th September 2016Sharon Chapman dealt with:
Sharon was amazing today. Friendly and approachable. She quickly started to explain in a way we could understand bits of her obviously extensive knowledge an understanding of how we can improve the day to day behaviour of our two boxer puppies. Immediately they were calmer and we could see exactly what we were doing wrong but had no idea!
I can see how if we follow her advice and everything she taught us today that we can have a good family life with our children and two boxer baby boys! Amazing to watch Sharon at work -we hope we can do her proud in time for her next visit.
These owners and dogs were a pleasure to work with. All keen to listen and learn. Both just needed some clear, consistent rules to follow.Looking forward to seeing everyone again and I am confident that they will make me proud.
27th September 2016Angela Young dealt with:
Angela was great with Louie & Harley, two very different behaviours, Louie very Anxious, nervous, timid & lacking confidence, would jump a wall to avoid children etc, scared of meeting people, Harley over confident, strong willed, demanding responses, thinks he's the pack leader, barking at other dogs, people when out on walks, obviously two owners needing a lot of imput & insight to their dogs needs, we found Angela to be very informative & knowledgable, training began the moment Angela arrived, both dogs, on Angela's terms were allowed to meet & greet, it was lovely to see how Louie responded to her. After a lot of time spent going over some basic techniques, which will be continued throughout each day until our next session, both Louie & Harley had a great nights sleep, ready to begin their reprogramming this morning, Louie had a good walk, a little less nervous, Harley had his first walk, without pulling, one bark only when someone walked around a corner, very quickly reassured & continued his walk, two people blocking his access, one bark, moved on without a problem, saw two dogs ahead, distracted very quickly & no issue, what a joyful walk for the first time in 12 months. Both dogs have a lot of work ahead as do their owners, but well worth contacting Angela, looking forward to this journey. Thank you
26th September 2016Isla Clarke dealt with:
The trainer, Isla, was both polite, very informative and went through the process with confidence that made me believe that I would be able to follow exactly as she had said. When we took Sophie out for the first time Isla put me and Sophie at ease by telling us both how well we were doing. Only a week gone by and Sophie is already improving in her overall reaction to cats. She recently went to a friends house whilst I was away and I asked the friend to kindly follow the instructions. She did and she told me that Sophie was reacting positively to her also. Although it is still early days I am extremely happy with the results so far.
22nd September 2016Tina Edwards dealt with:
Tina helped us to understand a dog's nature more than we did, and taught us how to communicate commands more effectively. She recognised that Blarney was very nervous and was confused about her place in the 'Pack'. We look forward to the outside leash training as it was much too hot to start it on that day.
Yes, our English summer was in full swing and roasting so no leadwork which we will do next time. I'm looking forward to seeing them all again soon. I adapted our training to ensure that Blarney was relaxed and happy to participate and will gain confidence from the daily work.
22nd September 2016Isla Clarke dealt with:
Isla was great. Storm is stubborn as hell and after 8 years had to share her home with another 4 year old staffy Luna. When they first met storm was having none of it and bit Luna and me and my partner thought we may have to live apart or one dog go to their grandparents. Isla sorted them out very quickly and now they even share a bed. Highly recommended.

22nd September 2016Estelle Jackson dealt with:
Estelle was thorough and gave some practical advice which started to work almost immediately. We are all working hard to implement the techniques and Daisy is coming along great!
After only one visit, it's difficult to provide a comprehensive review, but so far it's looking positive.

21st September 2016Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
We very much enjoyed the training session with Linda. She explained everything very clearly and answered any questions we had. We were amazed that Dolly actually walked to heel for the first time while Linda was there. There is still work to do but using the techniques we were shown by Linda it is making things much easier.

20th September 2016Gina Hinsley dealt with:
In a word, 'Brilliant!'
It wasn't the dog that needed training, it was me! After an extended period of illness when the dog was looked after by various friends and family, I had forgotten the correct way to give commands. Gina tuned into my dog and with immediate positive results. I can't thank her enough.
I am now back to being a confident dog owner and we are both much happier for it. Thank you!
