I have 2 pomerenians and because they are so cute I couldnt resist at all and it felt like they were the one's in control. So i had to find someone who can help me with their behaviour which i honestly thought was impossible

Till Alex showed me the ways to train them and how to let them respect me. Alex was amazing! And its crazy how 3 hours really made a massive difference. Im so happy with how well behaved my puppies are.

Trainer note from Alex:
Even I am sometimes surprised how well some dogs respond to the training after just 3 hours working with them and their owner. The lesson went really well and by the time we had finished both dogs were no longer jumping or barking, but just chilling together. A big success!!

Alex Fraser dealt with: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Destructive chewing that results in destruction of furniture, woodwork etc Hyperactivity Pulling on the Lead Separation Anxiety

In the few months since my husband and I got our wonderful cockapoo puppy, Ziggy, our lives have revolved around her completely. She has separation anxiety and, though I work from home, getting work done has been impossible because of the amount of attention she needs. She is a very happy dog - as long as she is not on her own for one second.

Left alone in a room, she would cry and hurl herself around, to the extent we thought she would seriously damage herself. I have stopped leaving the house without her, even to pick up a pint of milk - her distress was too much to bear.

After reading so much contradictory advice on-line and trying it all and getting nowhere (and feeling like a zombie after having no sleep) I got in touch with Alex out of desperation.

Our session was a revelation, and the Life Time support offers peace of mind, knowing we can call upon Alex at any time in the future.

Seeing how Ziggy responded so positively to Alex's instructions (with her tail wagging throughout the session) was unbelievable. I am skeptical about anything with too-dramatic-sounding results, but the change in her responses was obvious. We are no way near being as good as Alex with the techniques yet, but we are still learning, and can now see how it's done.

Most importantly - Ziggy loved Alex and enjoyed the session.

I feel confident that we have the techniques now to get our lives back. Ziggy is as happy and loving as ever when she's with us - still full of personality, but not crying in distress every time I leave the room.

We can't thank you enough, Alex.

Trainer note from Alex:
Raising a puppy can be challenging, especially for first time puppy owners, but rewarding non the less. I really enjoyed working with Ziggy's parents, and Ziggy responded really well to the training methods we used. I'm really looking forward to catching up with Ziggy and her family in the future.

The training with Alex was very clear and practical. I was given a number of different training tasks to carry out regularly. The session was enjoyable and broken up well into small sections within an overall framework.

Alex spent 3 hours teaching us how to train our dogs Tilly seems to be responding quite well ivy is older and more stubborn but seems to be getting better the lessons were very helpful and Alex was very easy to talk to and very pleasant to deal with hopefully we will be having follow up lessons in the next couple of weeks to see their progress

Trainer note from Alex:
With multiple dog jobs, its often not the dog that I'm initially called in to see that is the root cause of their problems. As the owners mentioned, their new addition was behaving better at the end of the first session than one of their older dogs.

I'm looking forward to catching up this Thursday to see how they are all doing.

Alex Fraser dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise

Roxy is an 8 year old cross pommeranian. She is a beautiful dog with a big bark and that was the problem. Everytime people entered or left the house Roxy would bark her head off and it was annoying and embarassing as she would not do as she was told. Roxy also has a bit of food aggression so when she is eating no one can go near as she would growl and snap at you. Alex came to visit us in early January , he spent about 3 hours at our home wiith me and 2 of my daughters. He fascinated us with how quickly he was training Roxy to stop barking and how easy it was for us to implement the techniques for us to do this.

Alex visited a few weeks later to see how we were getting on and to offer any more supoort. He could see a vast improvement

Its a couple of months on now and Roxy is a different dog. We feel we have much more control over her barking. Obviously she barks because thats what dogs do to communicate but Roxy does not bark at everyone like she did when they are coming and going from our home.

We have control over her eating now too as she has learned to wait for us to allow her to go for the food.

I would definately recommend Alex Fraser to assist with any dog training problems that you have. He has helped us to control Roxys barking and eating issues. We are grateful for his professional incite.

Trainer note from Alex:
Roxy is a lovely pampered Pomeranian who barked a lot when people walked past and especially when people entered the house. By the end of the first session, her family were able to stop her barking repetitively when I entered their home ad they had also built in some control manners around food. By the time I returned 2 to 3 weeks later there was a massive improvement in her behaviour - I am delighted!!

Alex Fraser dealt with: Pulling on the Lead Recall or not coming when called

Although i had used Bark Busters for my last dog who sadly died 2 years ago it was 15 years ago and my memory isn't what it used to be.

I have a 15 month Labra doodle Missy Moo her main problem is recall, although she was pulling on the lead,with a bit of refreshing problem solved after 30 min.

However getting Missy to look and listen was a bit harder.

Alex gave me confidence and reassurance and i feel that if i follow the training Alex gave me,i should have thee Perfect Pouch!

Knowing that i can contact Alex at any time and he'll be there.

Great trainer listened and built my confidence.

Many thanks Alex you've made dog walking the pleasure it should be.!

Trainer note from Alex:
Missy is a really well behaved dog around the home, however she does not always come when called both inside and outside the home. Her attentiveness when walking to heel improved by the time we finished the first session, and I'm confident her recall will continue to improve.

I would highly recommend the trainer Alex, Toby used to tug at the lead and pull when he went for a walk, after the first session Alex recommended the harness, which worked really for Toby, after the first session Toby is now well behaved when he goes for a walk, I am very pleased to have found a trainer like Alex because it has helped a lot and Toby is already better behaved.

Trainer note from Alex:
By the time we finished the first session, Toby was walking well to heel and I have received confirmation that he is still behaving whilst walking on his lead. He also used to get very nervous and bark when any stranger entered his home, but this has also greatly improved. Keep up the good work
