Was lovely to meet Alex today. He is a knowledgeable trainer who explains what works (and why) and what doesn’t. He also tells you what you are already doing right or where you are making mistakes. We have 2 young dogs and he very quickly figured out their personalities and tailored the training to suit each dog which was great for us. We are so confident that Alex can teach us, that we immediately signed up for further training and can’t wait to see Alex again in a few weeks.

Trainer note from Alex:

2 lovely young Retrievers! Both quite excitable and strong, so walking them wasn’t easy, especially for one person to walk them on their own. By the end of the first training session, both dogs were listening to their family and walking much better on their leads. Although we achieved a lot in the initial 3 hour session, follow up support can be really beneficial to build on the training  and to ensure their family get things right.


 


looking forward to catching up with them all in a few weeks.

I was amazed how quickly Alex had my two dogs responding and was very grateful for his advice how to stay pack leader. We spent some time discussing the behaviour of my dogs and how I reacted. His advice made a lot of sense and made me realise that I was also part of the problem.

Trainer note from Alex:

2 lovely dogs, but there was some underlying tension between them. They both responded really well to the training session today and I am so pleased that their owner is back in charge of her pack! Keep up the good work

Alex Fraser dealt with: Barking at people, dogs and animals or barking for attention or at noises Digging Hyperactivity Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Puppy Management

ALEX COULD IMMEDIATELY TELL US THAT CHARLIE HAD TRAINED US VERY WELL! WE RECEIVED LOTS OF INFORMATION AND ADVICE AND CHARLIE WAS REASONABLY QUICK TO RESPOND TO THE NEW COMMANDS. WENT ON HOLIDAY, LEAVING CHARLIE WITH DOG SITTERS AT HOME, SO WE NEED TO ALMOST START AGAIN WITH HIS TRAINING. COULD NOT USE THE "BAH" SOUND SUGGESTED TO STOP CHARLIE DOING THE WRONG THING, AS IT GAVE ME A SORE THROAT WITHIN 2 DAYS SO I NOW USE A SOUND WHICH SUITS ME. LOOK FORWARD TO OUR NEXT SESSION WHEN ALEX WILL SURELY CONTINUE TO TELL US WHERE WE ARE GOING WRONG. WE ARE FAR TOO SOFT WITH CHARLIE BUT WE WILL GET THERE IN THE END, WITH ALEX'S HELP - I AM SURE.

Trainer note from Alex:

Alfie is a lovely little dog and responded really well to the training, along with his Mum and Dad. My training is more about training the owners who in turn can train they’re dog (s)


On the odd occasion the initial 3 hour session is enough to give the owners the skills to continue to train their dog without further support from me. This was one of those sessions

Alex Fraser dealt with: Barking at people, dogs and animals or barking for attention or at noises Puppy Management

Alex Fraser was very friendly and tried his best to engage with a rather nervous little dog. We felt very comfortable with his style of teaching and sense of humour as novice puppy owners . By the end of the session we had learnt how to walk her properly and about passive leadership techniques. We realise the three of us still require further input from Alex

Trainer note from Alex:

Some dogs are naturally more nervous than others and this young dog had spent its first 6 months with her mother, sister and previous owner, but had had very little interaction with others, especially men. She was very nervous! It’s so important that the pace of the initial training session suits both the owner and their dog. We managed to do more on the first session than I first anticipated but there is still plenty more to work on. I’m looking forward to catching up with them all.

Alex was very informative and explained everything in detail. I feel very confident that he will be able to help with our problems with Gyp. We are continuing with the training and advise he gave us and am seeing some light at the end of the tunnel.

Alex was very pleasant and explained everything to us. He made us feel relaxed too. On the second visit Alfie was like another dog. We have been following his recommendations and Alfie is becoming a much more calmer dog. Alex has also provided support inbetween sessions, which continues to be a great help.

Alex Fraser dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Hyperactivity Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Recall or not coming when called

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.
