Phillip was very helpful and we saw improvements in the dog's behaviour while he was there. He was very patient with us and went through a lot of issues with both dogs.

3rd September 2018Jane Whitehead dealt with:
Alfie used to pull on the lead and jump on people when he was too excitable. Now he’s like a different dog! Jane was so helpful and knew exactly how to help him. Now he walks calmly and doesn’t jump on anyone.

Jane did an amazing job with my puppy's separation anxiety. River would bark and scratch at the door whenever left alone and all my research was not working, eg a filled kong, toys, music, leaving her for seconds at a time. I really had no idea what to do so called Jane and she fixed it in less than a minute. Easily.
Jane listened to my questions and concerns and her advice was practical, common sense and very helpful. I had paid for another positive treat based dog trainer for help but was left with no instruction or demonstration concerning my problems. There are so many different schools of thought in dog training that I was getting very confused. I completely understand that treat based training would work for some people and their dogs but it wasn't working for me.
It was also fascinating to see how differently my puppy acted around Jane. A perfect sweet angel. But as soon as Jane left there was a definite lack of respect which tells me I'm the problem! I am working on this...it would be great if Jane lived with me....😊 Thanks so much Jane, we look forward to seeing you again soon!

2nd September 2018Stefanie Budiman dealt with:
Stef was an absolute lifesaver! The improvement that the training has made to our lives is absolutely incredible. Stef was super friendly, helpful and understanding. The training she provided was not telling us what we were doing wrong, like I expected dog training to be. Instead, Stef was super encouraging and explained everything, including the reasons behind why we do everything. Within 10 minutes we could already see a massive difference. We are currently doing our homework exercised and everyone is loving it, especially Loki.
Thanks Ash! Loki (3 year old Kelpie x) is an absolute angel! He's very lucky to be rescued and found a fantastic home with you and Lex and wants to please. I am very happy we provided the correct strategies to reduce his excessive barking and other general misbehaviours, and improve his walking and focus. Well done in getting fantastic results and keep up the great work!
2nd September 2018Philip Comans dealt with:
The session that we had with Philip on Thursday was comprehensive and very informative. We were able to see immediate benefits from his instructions and advice on handling Oskar. He was very hands on and demonstrated a depth of knowledge in relation to managing dog behaviour. He has an obvious passion for helping dog owners get the most out of their pet.
Oskar is a 3 year old Golden Retriver and was dog aggressive and reactive. He's a super dog ❤️. We saw him respond extremely well today to my gentle methods of canine communication. With tolerance, patience and practice he will be much more calm when he encounters other dogs. And yes, I do have a passion to help people get the most out of sharing their home with a dog. Dog owners are the BEST! And dogs make us better people!

We have a Bichon x and after Emma Visited us, he is a completely changed pup. Emma's training is highly recommended
Fluffy is a very cute 12wk old Bichoodle.
We covered puppy basics and preventative measures, along with dealing with jumping, barking, recall, getting used to a lead & collar, and toilet training.
His family did a great job during their first speak dog session & I am looking forward to seeing them all again soon.

I have found Jane really helpful. Her training has really made a difference with Lennon. Jane has a way of giving advice in a way that is easy to understand. It was definitely worth it. I can't recommend her enough.

31st August 2018Philip Comans dealt with:
Very clear and well explained with great information, and very friendly too.
Bill & Ted are sibling 2 year old Doberman X Koolie males. Bill is very anxious and spends every waking minute running around the yard. He's clearly "on guard!" Ted follows Bill's every move and also gets aggressive towards Bill at times. Both dogs have had a lot of change in the past with several different houses (same very loving and devoted humans though) so Bill's anxiety has been compounded. Both boys responded extremely well today and several proven strategies have been implemented to assist them be happier, calmer dogs. We've already seen good improvement but we have a little way to go. Well done so far to both dogs and their devoted humans!

31st August 2018Jane Whitehead dealt with:
Thankyou Jane for all your advice. Walking has become so much more enjoyable and we feel confident taking Paddy places knowing that we have control and can manage his behaviour. Your advice about setting boundaries in the home is helping as Paddy rarely ventures into the kitchen now.

Ken was amazing!!! He helped our little cavoodle with separation anxiety and barking. The helpful lessons we learnt from Ken have created a new dog! We can't thank him enough!
