5th July 2015David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
In two hours this training changed my life. I had lists and lists of problems. From pulling on the lead, barking, nipping, weeing in the house, jumping up at guests, so many things. I can safely say everything mentioned here was resolved in that time. The training was really practical, explain then try yourself and we have practiced it every day. It's amazing the dogs are like totally different dogs. They are calm, don't demand any more don't bark uncontrollably. There are a couple of things we are working on like barking at other dogs on a lead which we have another meeting for. The best thing I ever did was invite David to help us. He is amazing.

David was very professional and listen to our concerns. He came up with a workable plan. He is prompt in replying to emails and we would recommend him to our friends if they needed advise

I am amazed after only one session. Widget is doing wonders. He is a much calmer dog and even though we haven't started on one of the reasons I needed a trainer which is aggression towards other dogs I know we will get there in the end. As an example we saw another dog tonight on our walk and he only looked at it and didn't lunge towards it. I'm not holding my breath but I have every confidence in David that he will get both me and Widget through this phase. I need David to come and live with us. Lol.

We are very pleased with the training, David gave clear instructions and worked through each step of the training with us. Also having our homework to do which is backed up by training notes is extremely helpful, as it is a lot to take in at the time.It's not about training her so much as training us. Looking forward to continuing training with David's help and guidance.
27th January 2014David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
It was our first session with David and to be honest we didn't think our head strong rescue dog 'Monty' had much chance of been helped. How wrong could we have been. After only 2 hrs we realised that we had been the main issue, totally confusing the poor little man with his position in the pack! We had instant positive albeit sulky results which have continued over the weekend to the extent whilst taking Monty for a walk yesterday 2 dogs off their leads approached Monty, which normally resulted in him wanting to play dominantly but he didn't they were the aggressors, with Monty looking at us for his protection. This action completely shocked us but has given us a positive outlook for the future of our happy little family. Really looking forward to our next session with David.

David gave us some very useful intial instructions that have helped enormously with her behaviour whilst walking on the lead. We are now starting to focus on heel walking and distance control after our second session with David, so far so good.
21st January 2014David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
David was very professional but really friendly.
He gave us loads of tips to help us with our rather bossy puppy. He demonstrated the actions then got us to practice. He has followed this up with leaflets to remind us.
Bess already seems to be responding. Early days yet but we feel that we have a range of techniques to support initial training.
He understood the concern we have over the cat in the household who is understandably upset by this noisy little monster in the house and I am sure in time we will have a harmonious household not ruled by a small black puppy!
20th January 2014David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
We saw immediate improvements in our 11mth old Irish Setter Bertie. We still have a long way to go and lots of hard work ahead of us, but I can now be in the same room as him without being jumped on and mauled. David was excellent and very thorough in his explainations and have given us all the support that we need.

David explained the processes very clearly and logically. He was both informative and encouraging in his instruction. I felt at ease with him from the start. The exercises yielded positive reactions from the start, so I am feeling optimistic for the future.
