9th January 2010Craig Steiff dealt with:
We we very impressed with Craig - Very insightful and an excellent personable manner. A week later, we are seeing a big difference in Jewels' behaviour!
Having already been re-homed once at just 6 months of age, Jewels the Boxer didn't have a great start in life. Fortunately her new owners are dedicated to doing the right thing for her. She had developed a dislike for certain dogs in the local park, and a habit for barking at the front door.
It was clear upon my arrival that Jewels had assumed a lot of unnecessary responsibilities within her new pack, such as answering the door and deciding which dogs were allowed in the park at the same time as her. All of which must have been quite stressful for owner and dog.
Jewels was quite good at training her owners, so we decided it was time to turn the tables and give her a much needed education. Once we had the owners speaking the same language, it became instantly clear to Jewels what was expected of her. The difference was obvious by the end of the first session... No more barking!! Peace at last.
9th January 2010Zoe White dealt with:
Clear easy to follow directions, which had immeadiate results with barking and puppy bitting. As a family we have found this to be very supportive and I would whole heartedly recommend Zoe to anyone.
We worked at puppy management with the youngest dog, including food issues and toileting issues. And worked on pulling on the lead and confidence building with the the other dog. They had a tendancy to get boisterous when playing together which we also looked at.
8th January 2010Kim Lummis dealt with:
When we got our puppy Scrumpy we were stressed and constantly tired. We really wanted to do the right thing by our puppy, but were really worried and unsure that the techniques we were using were the right ones. We were also confused and worried by Scrumpy's behaviour and wondered if some of the things she was doing were normal. Kim was able to put our minds at rest and set us on the right track. Scrumpy is doing well now, and Kim still comes to see us to ensure Scrumpy will be a well behaved adult dog.

6th January 2010Andy Waterhouse dealt with:
Andy Waterhouse attended punctually and was very friendly, and my boxer Grace responded to him immediately. I am looking forward to further sessions with Andy.
4th January 2010Kim Lummis dealt with:
Amazed that results were so quick when Kim ran our first session. We have all worked hard, and will continue to do so - but it works! My younger dog is learning faster but the older one is (reluctantly!) responsive too. So all in all, ask me in a year but I'm hoping I have perfect pets!

3rd January 2010Tina Edwards dealt with:
Very impressed with Tina's training of Marley, we could barely believe the change in his behaviour and are hopeful that with more training and Tina's help we can have the loveable family pet we envisaged when we purchased him. Prior to Tina's Arrival we were considering giving Marley up as he had turned into quite an unlikeable animal. Now we can see we were going wrong and have high hopes for the future.
This young Beagle was certainly living up to his name!! He was pulling, barking chewing, jumping up and being generally very disruptive in his attention seeking and was making the whole family upset with him. His diet was reviewed and I showed the family how to work with him to show him a new way to behave, giving him the attention he needed in the way of games/training with praise as the reward he craved.

2nd January 2010Tracey Callaghan dealt with:
Very impressed with Tracey. We have seen an immediate improvement.
1st January 2010Andy Waterhouse dealt with:
Andy unravelled what had seemed an impenetrable problem calmly, easily and in a way both we and the dog understood. If only we'd asked for his help sooner!
1st January 2010Craig Steiff dealt with:
The first session went very well. I was impressed with the calm way Craig dealt with \'Blue\'
I\'m confident this training will be very beneficial to both me and \'Blue\'
When training young dogs you don\'t want to train them too hard, or in anyway take away the enjoyment of having a companion animal.
With \'Blue\' all that was required was to politely point out his mistakes and give plenty of praise for the good behaviour.
With young dogs it\'s also a wonderful opportunity to make sure the conditions are right in the first place, so that the bad behaviours don\'t start later on in life.

31st December 2009Nicki Platt dealt with:
Nicki was very good at explaining the reasons for Jacks behaviour. She spent plenty of time observing and analysing his actions. The techniques she suggested have made an immediate improvement but will obviously need to be continued for full benifit.
