24th May 2012Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
I feel confident that with Linda's help I will be able to overcome the problems I have been having with my dog and the problems my dog has with me.
We have only just completed the first session and there will be follow up sessions and homework to follow to help the owner and her dog.
22nd May 2012Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
We saw immediate results with easy to follow guidelines. We have been able to put everything Linda taught us into practise with success. Meg still has a lot to learn but we now feel much more confident and able to control certain situations better.
We were also advised to alter Meg's diet which she is not only enjoying more but we feel she is less hyperactive.
Meg is still a very young Border Collie that was very anxious about visitors, barking and backing away from them, she lunged at cars, bikes and other dogs. Even after I was in their home for a while if I dared to move it would start her off on the barking and daring herself to have a lunge at me. After the intial session we could see an improvement in her and on my second visit I was almost sure she was a different dog! She was laid down on the floor in the living room relaxed. Meg's owners have done a wonderful job on her and her behaviour is much improved. I will be continuing to support Meg and her family with any problems they have with her.

Linda works in a professional and friendly way, explaining simply how to address Ozzy's problems. We still have a long way to go, but there is an improvement so far.

Very impressed with the results achieved in a short space of time. Highly recommended with a thorough professional approach.
20th March 2012Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Deefer has responded very well to the 'pillow' and the bah command. He is much calmer since training began and people that call say how much better he is. The Canny collar has been wonderful for walking and he is now a pleasure to take out.
We still have a long way to go but seem to be on the right track - not bad for only eight months old. Thank you Linda.
17th March 2012Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Linda has just returned for her second visit. Our dog is under a year old and in her 'terrible teens'. We didn't realise what a good job she was doing of training us, especially regarding passive dominance! Pulling on the lead was our worst issue, if we hadn't seen it with our own eyes we wouldn't have believed that a new collar and key word would make such a difference after only one session.
Today we worked on recall. Linda persevered despite other dogs, children, rain etc, so that we were in no doubt how to proceed. It's nice to see training not based on food/clickers etc. Being mean!!
The collar mentioned is our own Bark Busters communication collar and this dog responded so well to the way in which we use it, she was walking by their side after only a few minutes of tuition. Clever girl.
11th February 2012Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
I am so pleased with how Barry is doing. I cannot believe the way he's changed. He was so aggressive towards visitors and other dogs. Now he's so well behaved we can enjoy our walks so much more.
2nd February 2012Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
From Linda's very first visit to see Alfie we saw an instant change. The new 'BAH' word works wonders, even our close family have commented on how good he is. Now he is allowed to go and visit my parents house!
21st January 2012Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Linda was very calm and thorough. She inspired me to be confident about helping Archie overcome his issues with loud noises and other dogs.
I am looking forward to further sessions with Linda to help me progress with getting the best possible outcome for Archie.
