3rd July 2018Tina Edwards dealt with:
Brilliant. Very informative, very understanding of my pocket rocket yorkie. Good advice about all aspects including food and a more holistic way of supporting some of her needs. Tina was not afraid to be gently firm with me which helped install the basics in me and thus help me with my very determined Milly.
Milly, well on my arrival she launched from about 4 mtrs away what looked like a full on attack at me! Full speed and landed half way up my chest! Luckily, once we started work, she showed us just what a delightful little girl she is! I fell in love with her and could have sneaked her in my bag to take her home! Her owners now know how to speak dog and she is relieved not to have to make decisions about visitors. Future visits will help with lead work and focus on her owner.

3rd July 2018Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
The help received today was great. The presentation was really clear and easy to understand and gave a whole new perspective to how differently dogs interpret things. We realised our mistakes straight away and now have a plan to help Shiva.
Kevin was really friendly and accommodating to our specifc needs and was very confident and ressuring about the training methods. He was also understanding of the fact that Shiva was a rescue dog from Romania and it was a clear he had experience with similar situations like this one.
I was anxious at the beginning of the session but results were almost instant. I could see a change in Shiva very quickly and I could answer the door and keep her under control and after one outdoor session I was able to call her back from chasing the car which was a great result.
Our main problem was that shiva would not walk on the harness and progress was made and even with just one session there were glimpses of success and I now know how to continue to work on this.
Overall I am very pleased with the service and it will improve our life with Shiva and keep her safe which is great.

27th June 2018Estelle Jackson dealt with:
Estelle had a chat with me and my wife to find out what type of dog Bonnie is after a few minutes she started telling us about Bonnie like she had known her for a long time. She informed us about her food then gave use some tips that helped from the beginning with her behaviour. We took Bonnie out, this was the one thing we need to get under control as she pulls from start to finish. She is a old Tyne bulldog so she is so strong. With in 5 minutes Estelle had stop her from pulling and working with her. We look forward to take Bonnie out cannot wait to see what is next. Thank you

26th June 2018Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
Excellent technique, learnt how to control the mouthing. Still a work in progress but delighted with the results after one session. Titan is learning this is not acceptable behaviour and will calm down. Would recommend without any hesitation as so impressed with the results.
Titan is a lovely natured Staffordshire Bull Terrier that his owners rehomed from the RSPCA. As a breed it is not uncommon for Staffies to be mouth orientated and lick, mouth and sometimes even nip when they are excited. In Titans case this was so excessive that his owners had to muzzle him when they had visitors. It is not easy to stop this behaviour and his owners have been very committed to teaching him good behaviour as well as dealing with his bad behaviour so friends and family can see what a truly wonderful dog he is.
26th June 2018Isla Clarke dealt with:
Was put straight at ease with Isla, after a conversation on getting to know Louie we preceded to work on Louies excited behaviour on greeting people. We also worked on Louies sit and stay. After almost a week on working on his training I'm pleased to say he's responding well and is eagar to please, it's like I'm finally talking in a language he understands. I look forward to Louies next lesson with Isla the dreaded out on the lead, but I'm more than confident Isla is the lady to put us on the right track to make walking a joy and not a tug of war.
