8th April 2018Alex Fraser dealt with:
Alex gave us simple techniques to help with our dog Castro’s behaviour that were successful immediately.
His sessions and fun and informative for both dog and owners. He is patient and thorough and we feel we are making big steps in the right direction.
Alex is only ever a text away if we have an issue that arises. We feel confident in his support and expertise and we all enjoy his sessions immensely.
Castro is a lovely little dog, but he used to get over excited when he encountered other dogs which resulted in him barking. I normally visit a number of customers on days I am working so i am unable to take my 2 boys with me, but I am more than happy for customers to come to me. We recently did a walk with Castro and my 2 dogs and it was amazing. All 3 were off lead and running around, and even when we encountered other dogs Castro’s Mum and Dad were able to ensure he behaved. Keep up the good work and I can’t wait to catch up with them all in the future.

7th April 2018Aaron Noble dealt with:
Aaron gave excellent advice in terms of helping Pongo with his seperation anxiety. We practiced daily and have seen massive improvement. Before Aaron helped Pongo barked and howled from me going out continuoisly until my return. Now it takes him 5 minute to settle and then he sleeps - i observe on a camera and am reassured he is happy and content.
Cannot thank you enough x
It is an absolute pleasure. Happy I could help!
6th April 2018Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
What a lifeline it’s been to have had a visit by Kevin which has resolved a desperate situation! It is now a pleasure and not a fear to have our dogs together. The immediate difference with the issues we have had within this one visit is unbelievable.

4th April 2018Alex Fraser dealt with:
As others have stated I was a little apprehensive as to how training in the house would attend to Millie's pulling, barking and non return tactics! However Alex explained the plans for the session and began training me! After learning the basics we went outside and soon Alex had Millie walking to heel - I was impressed. Today I have been out for a walk waiting to be pulled but we have walked to heel :) This is only the first day but I am hopeful and looking forward to the second training session working on recall
I know what I do works, but I was expecting Millie to be a real puller on her lead. By the end of the first session she was walking beautifully next to her Mum. We have met up again recently and she was still behaving whilst on her lead which allowed us to deal with her excited barking when she passed people. She did really well. I am looking forward to catching up in a few weeks time to work on recall.

3rd April 2018Lee Hardy dealt with:
Lee definately has the magic touch with dogs. My little penny doesn't like men at all especially when they are near me. Lee taught me how to control her I'm in charge and in control of the situation and worked with me for a few hours in how to communicate with penny. I cannot believe a couple hours in and she was sitting on his lap on the sofa very relaxed and at ease. He is coming back soon to help me with her walking but in over a week she is a new dog already with me using what he has taught me. Its gave me the confidence to dicipline her when I need to and she seems a much happier dog knowing her boundaries. Cannot wait for her next session. Thank u so much lee.

3rd April 2018Manda Denny dealt with:
Manda was instantly likeable and friendly. She listened intently to our concerns and explained everything in terms we clearly understood! Rocco tried it on a bit but after a while we saw quite an amazing change in his temperament. The ‘homework’ and literature Manda left was clear and concise and I’m always referring back to it. As long as we keep practising, as advised, I’m sure we’ll see a happier dog, leaving us happier owners!! Can’t wait for our next session!!
Rocco is a lovely boy who was a little worried about having to look after his family. He’s a lot happier now that the pressure is off.

2nd April 2018Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
The initial training was very comprehensive and adequate to what our dog needed. I learnt a lot in the session with Jo and felt confident that the exercises she recommended were something I could perform and teach my husband to do with our dog. A week later, when we had our follow up session with Jo and my husband, we also had a very good training session that further helped our dog to gain the confidence he needed to travel and evolve with us.
Jo's recommendations and interest in helping our dog have been fantastic.
These owners have a Bernese Mountain Dog puppy. Their business is on two continents and it is important that their puppy can travel safely on an aeroplane. Unfortunately it has proved that their puppy is fearful. This is not unusual in young dogs and a lot can be done to increase a dogs confidence but to do this, these owners have had to undertake an intensive program to build his confidence sufficiently to travel without being damaged by the experience. He has made very significant progress already and his owners have gone out of their way including changing travel plans to give their dog the best chance possible.
