30th May 2013Sharon Chapman dealt with:
Sharon arrived on time, she was very relaxed and easy to talk to. The issue for us was that we have introduced a new pup to our 4 year old Yorkie Henry. We were concerned that Henry was not accepting Pascha and wanted to address any issues before they became major issues. Sharon gave us great advice which resulted in Henry becoming much more relaxed with Pascha within half an hour. The dogs responded to Sharon well and she showed great affection for animals. She assured us that what is occurring between our dogs is perfectly natural and she sees no behaviour problem, all was explained in depth and great techniques provided. I would recommend this service to anyone that has concerns re their pets.

Sharon is lovely. She explained everything thoroughly to me and I now realise why Trevor behaves like he does. We practise every day he is extremely stubborn but is starting to respond in a more positive way. He was never socialised before we had him and is quite scarred of other dogs eventually I'm hoping we can walk past another dog without him becoming anxious

Tonight was our first session with Sharon, she gave us lots of easy to understand advice and helped us to learn how to continue training Breagh who is an eleven month old border collie. We were given advice on her diet as well as her obedience. Breagh responded really well and we have the confidence to continue until we see Sharon again in another two weeks.

Sharon spent a lot if time with us and identified things that we hadn't noticed was happening. The homework has been achievable and we've seen some improvements already. It gave us enthusiasm and knowledge on how to help us tackle the problems
12th April 2013Sharon Chapman dealt with:
Sharon explained things very clearly and helped to put my mind at rest about the personalities of the dogsand why they may be behaving as they do. It has given me confidenceto continue with the dogs andso far they are showing more attentiveness when on a walk - but we have a long way to go yet.
13th March 2013Sharon Chapman dealt with:
Sharon is lovely. I was nervous expecting to be criticised, held to blame in some way. She was calming, reassuring and professional. Explained things in a way I could relate to. Set some exercises in place which we practised. Took us for a walk to observe his fear with other dogs. Advised afterwards. Left us feeling calm and in control. Now awaiting her second visit which she mentioned bringing one of her dogs along to introduce a positive experience for him.
Bo is a lovely young GSD he is just not sure of other dogs, so he barks but due to his size and breed he can be misunderstood, Chris needed to know that he wasn't naughty or aggressive, just unsure. Since receiving her comments Bo has met my dog Rafa and is beginning to understand that other dogs aren't scary but good fun to play with, and Chris now has the confidence and knowledge to ensure that all his experiences with other dogs are positive.

27th January 2013Sharon Chapman dealt with:
The advise I received from Sharon was very positive and helpful. I realise that I am to ready to tell the dog off and not giving enough praise.
This is a first time dog owner who just needed some reassurance that she was doing things right, as she has stated she was quick to tell the dog off but not quick enough to praise when the dog responded, she also needed some guidance on helping the dog make the right decision. They should both be much happier now.
