Well what can I say that others haven’t already said in previous reviews! I have 4 large dogs – 2 of which are rescue dogs and 2 of which are 9 month old pups. I had a huge list of assorted issues that I needed Linda’s help with and in today’s first session we have covered boundary work, front door manners and distance control. I really can’t believe how responsive all 4 dogs were to the training techniques and in 2 hours have seen such a huge difference thanks to Linda’s excellent training of me! Thankyou so much for giving me hope Linda!
These four dogs were quite big! but such big softies and just needed to know that they weren't, in fact' in charge! When I left all four were asleep! Hope I didn't tire their owner out as much! Beautiful behaved dogs now. Although we still have to tackle lead work and recall at a later date. Well done to everyone.

The main problems we have with Mitch are: jumping up, pulling on lead, especially after vehicles, and recall. On her initial visit Linda has helped us with all but the recall. The new harness in conjunction with the command words has seen almost instant and miraculous success and Mitch is now a pleasure to walk. The command word plus training aid has had some success in curtailing the jumping up, especially with strangers. However, it has only had limited success with ourselves and relatives. Mitch is still a pup and we're sure, with Linda's help we will succeed in the end. We are very much impressed thus far with Linda and the process and look forward to her next visit shortly.
Mitch is a beautiful, young dog that still has a lot to learn. I cannot wait to see him on Thursday for our revisit appointment. His owners are being consistent and with some extra lessons Mitch will become a much better behaved lovely dog.

Linda is an absolutely amazing trainer, our dog is a rescue and has some very bad habits along with aggression, Linda was able to calm Layla down within the first 5 minutes of training, Almost instantly we saw a change in Layla, she was much calmer and relaxed, since our first visit we have been following Linda's homework she gave us and each day is getting better and better, without Linda I don't think we would have been able to do this. Layla has become a lot more attentive and is more obedient, we still have some issues to combat however I have no doubt that we can straighten these problems with Linda's support and guidance. Linda also gave us information on nutrition as Layla is a very picky eater, since we've brought Layla onto the raw food diet Layla is no longer agitated and will empty her bowl at both meal times. Thank you Linda!
WOW, this is an amazing result. I love it when owners follow their homework. It is hard work to get the results you want. Layla is already on her fifth home so we really needed to work hard and put the homework in place. Well done Layla.

Fantastic trainer for me and Allie, couldn't believe how quick Allie learnt to be on her own without Barking and scratching on the door. Linda was very friendly. Looking forward to allies next training session.
24th January 2016Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Linda was very calm and professional in her approach towards the training. She explained all aspects in clear language, demonstrated techniques and then allowed me to practice the same. Before the session ended Millie had already become much calmer and responded well to training. The literature that Linda left with me was also very clear, precise and useful.

We were so impressed with Linda! The reaction of our pets to her and the advice she gave us was incredible! I fully intend to carry it on as I know my babies will definately benefit from it. She left us with a training programme to follow and we will do all she suggested. Nula is a rescue puppy who has a few issues but we will get there with Linda's help. A huge thank you to Linda!

Our walks are now stress free, for both Monty and myself. He walks at heel and is responding to his training. The barking is now manageable and much less! HAPPY OWNER - HAPPY DOG!! Thank you Linda
Monty is a beautiful Cavalier who thought he was in charge of his owner. They were so lovely to work with and responded well to the training. I have since revisited and it is so lovely to see him trotting nicely by his owners side without barking at cycles, scooters or children playing. Well done to you both.

We were very pleased with Linda and the way she came across, we noticed a difference that same day with Jess and things are a lot calmer now we are following her advice. Once we have this under control we can work on the outside work.
Jess is a beautiful dog and now that she is not the leader of the pack she has calmed down and is enjoying being herself. We do have more work to do but well done so far Jess.
