We were very impressed by Isla and the magical techniques that she showed us. She really was our fairy godmother! Not only was she extremely friendly, caring, and listened to our concerns, but also her knowledge of dog behaviour was incredible. After Isla had discussed our concerns in great detail, we started training with Toddy. Isla expertly guided us through and was so patient with us until we had grasped the most effective techniques we have ever seen. We were so amazed how Toddy responded to his "reconditioning" during the session with Isla and can see major improvements already as he is responding really well to his new regime. Now that we have stopped him window watching he seems to be a lot calmer. We are looking forward to meeting Isla again for our next session so that she can show us more of her magic!

Isla is GREAT. Alfie responded great to her techniques and is now becoming a lovely dog to live with! Getting better on his walks everyday. Her techniques are easy to follow everyday.
Looking forward to our next session.
Worth every penny to have a lovely little boy :)

I cant recommend Isla enough!! After just one afternoon the change in Archie's behaviour is amazing. We did not realize that his behaviour was due to him being so anxious until Isla pointed it out and explained why and how to correct the problem. He is now so much happier and relaxed, and not "on guard" all the time. It gives us peace of mind to know that we can contact Isla at any time for advice, or ask for a visit if we need it for any future problems we may have with Archie. Well worth the fee.

This was the first home dog training we have had and I can say with my hand on my heart that Isla is truly wonderful at her job and worth every penny.
Isla was so very kind and clear in her explanations and spent time talking through Tinkerbellâ€™s history and behaviour.
Even within the initial training session Isla helped transform Tinkerbellâ€™s undesirable behaviour into a sweet little girl who feels safe and happy.
Isla talked us through how to deal with Tinkerbellâ€™s behaviour taking us both through every stage allowing my husband and I to give the commands.
As a result of Isla's visit we changed Tinkerbell's food.

Well where do we start. We where both very skeptical about this training but for the sake of our little rescue dog (Chaz) we where willing to give it a go. Isla made us feel as though we had known her for years she felt like part of the family as soon as she walked in. She is a fabulous person and a very caring person. She took some notes from asking questions about Chaz; does he bark at people, does he jump up, does he chew, does he dirty in the house. Isla then told us she was going to show us some simple exercises to do in the house. We have carried this on every day and he is getting better each time. Rob has been taking him out still in a morning but is worried that he is not doing the procedure right - this is something we will both work on and strive to achieve. All in all we are very, very pleased with the small progress we have made in just 3 days. Isla you are an angel in disguise and thank you for guiding us in what we have to do to help Chaz.
24th January 2014Isla Clarke dealt with:
I was starting to worry that my beautiful baby was somehow a problem case. She is only a pup and suffered with not staying in her fate and when she was there howling like a wolf. Within 1 hour of Isla's arrival she was quiet and behaving. Of course I have many weeks of imbedding the behaviour into my dog but the difference in just 3 hours is quite frankly remarkable.
Isla is lovely and easy to discuss issues with.
Would highly recommend

Dudley is doing extremely well thanks to Isla. He is more confident and getting better everyday. We have done a couple of comunity walks with Isla and he is so well behaved and very rarly barks at other dogs. The advice we have been given regarding his diet has worked amazingly, we never thought that just by changing the type of dog food he had would make such an impact on his life. He still has days when he won't really eat a lot but it's just a case of time and patience and Isla did inform us of the little hick ups we may have as he gets to know his new ways. I'm very proud of the huge change to Dudley with Isla's help I think we would of still been scratching our heads wondering what to do to help and reassure him if we hadn't had her help.

I can sum the training up in one word AMAZING. Dudley was responding really quickly which i was surprised about. One thing that we are working on is stopping him from going into the front window and already he has stopped himself a couple of times. I wish i had had this help sooner. I can't wait to see the transformations over the next year to help make Duduleys life a stress free one. As a rescue dog i believe he has had enough stress in his 2 years of life and want his new life with our family to be a happy one as he is a treasured pet.
It is lovely working with Dudley and his family, Dudley and his family work so hard in training and it was so lovley to see all of his progress over time and it was lovely to see you all at the community dog walk.
