What our Clients are saying about us
Jacquie was brilliant, so helpful, knowledgeable, and experienced. She didn't make me feel silly for not getting things right or for having been trained by my dog! She made me feel confident and looking forward to doing all of the exercises and homework.K.C., Basingstoke, Hampshire17th March 2017
Jacquie is an excellent trainer, Tosh feels at ease with Jacquie and responded to the training from the first lesson, Jacquie explains the training in an easy to understand and through format leaves you with your own training schedule to follow and when to make contact to discuss progress, reassuring to know Jacquie is only a phone call away if you have a problem, I also like how Jacquie listens to your concerns with your dog and comes up with answers and reassurance, first class all the way.P.S., Colnbrook, Berkshire8th October 2016
My Lakeland Terrier was a challenging dog when Jacquie first met us. He had no respect for me and I was falling out of love with him! Jacquie got things straightened out within a month. Even after the first lesson I could see where I was going wrong and I was able to re-assert my leadership skills. Jacquie was able to understand not only my dog but me as well. By being able to relate to how I was feeling, we could explore how I could respond differently to the situation. We also addressed the dog's diet which was essential in moderating his hyperactivity. Jacquie is a truly impressive dog and owner trainer.L.C., Cobham, Surrey28th April 2015
Jacquie was great and instantly made us feel a lot more confident in our handling of Rhaegar. The methods she showed us were easy to follow and the results were almost instant. Training and walking is fun again!N.T., Basingstoke, Hampshire30th May 2014
Amazing! The dog's behaviour improved instantly and has continued all day. He is a completely different dog. I'm totally lost for words.S.H., Basingstoke, Hampshire22nd May 2014

Early days but Hugo is unrecognisably better on the lead. He is also much better at not rushing out of doors. We still have some work to do on behaving when the doorbell rings but visitors have noticed a big improvement. He is still not good at meeting other dogs but the water spray does calm him down and we have had some non aggressive meetings with smaller dogs and I have great hopes of future improvements. We have changed his diet and he does enjoy the new food but it's obviously too soon to know if his behaviour has been affected.

Was done in a relaxed and friendly way, didn't feel that I was being judged by my dogs behaviour, also had good advice from Jacquie ref feeding times for my dogs.

A lovely little Jack Russell terrier, who gets a little worried when out in the big wide world!
With his owners help he can now feel a bit braver with those bigger dogs.

Jackie was excellent. I was very impressed with what she did with Spike. It seems she has fixed the barking problem.

Very informative took time to make sure we both understood what we had to do and what not to do
Delightful 6 month cavaschon. Just needed to know what to do, would have loved to have taken her home with me!

After 1st session, pulling on the leads was much improved. I can now walk both (big dogs!) without the need for a harness, with loose leads on collars, without charging!! Visitors to the house get a much more, quiet, polite welcome. Can now get both dogs to stay by me when doggie friends spotted. It's a relief for them not to charge over to say a big hello! Hardy, flat coat is somewhat belligerent about the new regime, but he is coming round slowly...Thomas, lab, has been very good with the training. Thoroughly recommend Jacqui, understood completely what we were looking to do. Both dogs not naughty, just very friendly, excitable and big, so we needed much better control, and that's what we are getting. There is no magic wand, it's training everyday and being consistent....but it works. Thank you
