3rd May 2017Shauna Hoey dealt with:
Our dog came from a rescue centre and suffers from anxiety and fear of strangers causing him to be aggressive. He was the same with Shauna who could not even reach into her bag without him barking. After one session he was sitting next to her and she could move around the room without reaction. An immediate improvement with visitors was noticed. He also improved outdoors with cyclists and joggers and we haven't even done any specific work on that yet. Advice on diet also seems to have helped calm him down. There is still work to do but the difference after one session was beyond our wildest dreams

2nd May 2017Tracey Callaghan dealt with:
The session with Tracey was extremely helpful. She was very patient and explained everything clearly. It was very interesting understanding the reason why dogs behave in certain ways and ways in which to change their behaviour.
There was a huge difference in Ollie's behaviour almost immediately. He is a rescue dog and was very anxious, he is now much more settled and calm.

Absolutely marvellous. Lee obsevered the 4 girls during an informal chat about my concerns on their walking, behaviour in general. Now I am happy to say I can walk them safer using verbal sounds, taught stress free by Lee. And using the same sounds to make having 4 rescue dogs within 6-7 weeks an even better home. The 4 girls already appear more relaxed together and their meal time was a delight to witness, no more I'm doggy boss. Thanks Lee see you soon.
1st May 2017Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
Bella is now a completely different dog in a very positive way. Additionally I have got much more confidence and can now take her for walks in the park without a lead. She responds really well to the whistle and this seemed to be the key to her change in behaviour. Jo is a very competent trainer and I am very pleased I availed of this service.
Bella is an 18 month old Golden Retriever who came from Mayhew Dog Rescue. She was very cautious with her new owners. She would get scared when taken out at night and plonk her bottom down and not move. She was also reluctant to come back when called and would just stand and look at them. This type of behaviour can happen with dogs who are fearful generally and can also happen if have been punished by previous owners. They are scared to make a mistake and shut down and don't respond. It was impossible to know with Bella as there was not much history. The key was to get her confidence in her owners. She responded really well to whistle recall (which never sounds angry!!) and on my second visit she was a totally changed dog. She clearly loved her new owners and had settled in with them really well.

30th April 2017Tina Edwards dealt with:
Great update from Tina as was having problems with recall. I realised I'd let some of the foundation exercises and approach slip a bit but Duke responded really well and I shall be working on those in the next few weeks. As always I liked the dog psychology approach and the clear sympathetic training method . This has really worked for me and my dogs who are both happy and responsive wouldn't hesitate to recommend this method to others.
Duke's a gorgeous young Labrador, now with a little sister. He'd got a bit "lost" after his older companion died, so had started to relapse on recall, but as soon as his owner began to be his leader again, he was sooo grateful an wanting to have more of the games!

27th April 2017Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
I cannot believe how well our puppy responded to Kevin. He is calmer and hopefully if we continue like he is now he will be safe for his lifetime. I am a huge softy and love that it is voice control. Rufus has had fun on his walks and is already beginning to ignore cars. Abbi says a big thank you too she no longer has a bouncy puppy hanging on her ruff!

Following Jo's visits I am enjoying the girls so much more - learning techniques to calm and control - the girls are happier and so am I. We have got more to do but we have achieved so much already. Thank you Jo.
