19th November 2018Angela Young dealt with:
Angela explains how the training should be carried out and the reasons why in a very clear and structured manner. Pedro has made a huge improvement in all areas since Angela's visit and we are enjoying carrying out the training with him, as it is all done in a positive and rewarding way.

19th November 2018Manda Denny dealt with:
I understand what was to be achieved. Mandy was very knowledgable. I prefer to be actively shown what to do. I will keep doing the exercises shown but sometimes I forget what to do. Sometimes Marvin isn’t attentive so it’s a bit difficult. I think he needs more training from Manda.
Marvin is a lovely dog, but he puts a lot of pressure on himself. It was lovely to go back and continue to work on his owner's goals.

18th November 2018Sharon Chapman dealt with:
Sharon was patient and understanding with owners and young dog! She took time to explain and demonstrate training methods, giving us the opportunity to practise them during the session. She has given us much-needed confidence in tackling Peggy's anxiety when outside the house and garden. Sharon has replied promptly and helpfully to our recent emails and we are looking forward to working with her while Peggy's training continues.
Wirral, Merseyside (Testimonial)
17th November 2018Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
Great, very relaxed and the dogs responded quickly thank you
This owner has a Westie and Shih Tzu who were rescued in Australia and came to the UK when their owner moved to London. They were barking at other dogs, pulling on the lead and occasionally causing problems in the home. The main source of these problems was that the dogs were trying to protect their owner and themselves rather than listening to their owner. Once we established a few boundaries and some communication rules, both dogs behaviour improved rapidly and they are doing really well.
15th November 2018Gina Hinsley dealt with:
Gina was firstly extremely lovely. the former "behaviouralist" I used was extremely judgemental and rude and it was lovely to not feed judged because I followed the bad advice of that former trainer and also that I am not being judged for having a fearful dog. Gina is also an excellent teacher, she doesn't expect you to be a pro or not make mistakes. I felt all the info provided was excellent and really helped and Ive already noticed a difference in Bilbo, as have my family. She clearly cares and it shows. I couldn't give higher praise.

15th November 2018Lee Hardy dealt with:
Lee was very friendly and professional. Scooby responded to his techniques quickly. Its only been two weeks but we are seeing a great improvement in his behaviour. It’s good to know that Lee will be there to support us for the next 12 months.

12th November 2018Alex Fraser dealt with:
We had an extremely positive first session with Alex last week. Charlie, our 9 month old collie, has been acting like a proper teenager! He is actually pretty well behaved indoors, but he loses focus completely when he is outside, particularly when it comes to other dogs! All in all, he has become a bit of a handful when we step out the front door! Alex spent a lot of time talking through Charlie's history with us, discussing all aspects of his diet, exercise, behaviours, etc. We then went through some exercises indoors, as much to teach us how to communicate with Charlie as it was to train him. We then went outside to do some lead walking and passing by another dog. We couldn't recommend Alex highly enough! He really took the time to talk to us, and went way over the original planned session time. We've noticed a change in Charlie immediately. He is now walking pretty much to heel on lead walks, and we already feel that he is more attentive to us when we are out in the park. We know that it is going to be a long road, and we all have a lot of work to put in, but Alex has definitely put us on the right path and given us more confidence to help us move forward.
Manchester, Greater Manchester (Testimonial)
12th November 2018Alex Fraser dealt with:
Alex was fantastic with Alfie, our 1.5 year old Manchester Terrier. We've have some problems with Alfie's barking, often caused by his separation anxiety when we have to leave him at home. Alex listened to our concerns, and met Alfie to see how he behaved. After talking through a variety of exercises to try with Alfie over the three hour session, we could already start seeing a difference in our dog. He's still got a way to go, but Alex did a great job of getting us on the right path.
Manchester, Lancashire (Testimonial)
11th November 2018Emma Barrett dealt with:
The training session with Emma, helped us to understand that our Labrador’s challenging behaviour was because he had become ‘top dog ‘ Her clear explanation of how a dog’s mind works made so much sense. Toby coped with his first training session very well and much to our surprise responded to Emma’s commands immediately. We have carried out the training tips every day and in less than a week we are noticing a major improvement . It is reassuring to know that we have Emma’s support for the next 12 months.
Coventry, West Midlands (Testimonial)
11th November 2018Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Linda was excellent, so friendly and professional. We could not believe the difference in Duke as soon as Linda began the training. We are so very impressed with Linda and are so glad we chose your company to help with Duke. Highly recommended.
Duke was a delight to train, he really wanted to learn and his owners are going to be excellent leaders. Well done Duke (and family).
