14th March 2008Manda Denny dealt with:
Superb! Amanda was extremely professional and empathetic. After her first visit, we're so pleased we consulted her! On New Year's Day, we adopted Alfie a 4-5 year old, occasionally snappy rescue dog Lurcher/Terrier cross we think, who was emaciated and had been shut away from contact with people/other dogs. He's loving, lively, fun and a very quick learner but also ignores us/runs away when he smells/sees something more interesting! Our main goals are to be able to take Alfie to the park, let him off lead for a run and know he won't bite anyone or anything; or race off out of sight but come back to us when called, no matter what distractions there are!
Amanda explained that before we can expect Alfie to behave OUTSIDE the home, we have to elicit his respect and make sure he behaves well IN the home first! She showed/instructed the whole family on techniques to practice consistently, for Alfie to treat us with respect, stop on command, stop 'mouthing', barking at the phone/doorbell, jumping up and lead-pulling. All this, with a calm approach and affection as a reward. Alfie's response was and is amazing! THANK YOU, we're looking forward to our next visit in two weeks!

6th March 2008Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Linda has done an excellent job sorting out Thunder. I didn't think it would work but it has. I am so surprised by it all.
This lady had a very food aggressive dog and I knew she would have to work very hard using our training methods. She applied herself and full credit to her on the results - Thunder is now a happy dog, walks nicely by her side and more importantly is enjoying his food without the aggression he had previously shown. Top marks to her.

3rd March 2008Andy Waterhouse dealt with:
Shovel the greyhound had developed aggressive barking behaviour towards other dogs - he had been attacked last year and got much worse.
I am amazed at the change already! Even other dog owners have commented on his improved behaviour. Thank you so much! We look forward to Andy's return visit - we are planning a walk and introduction to Andy's boxer, something which seemed impossible just last week!
We got lots of other great advice too.

1st March 2008Steve Smithson dealt with:
We were really pleased with the service you provided. Steve was really helpful and we now feel we have the tools to manage our dog's behaviour and are able to enjoy her in the family.
This family with a very young child found the behaviour of their Labrador increasing difficult within the home to the point where the dog was being isolated more and more - something they didn't want. We helped to reintegrate the dog into the family which met the original aim of having a family pet!
