Allan Foster dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Pulling on the Lead

Kaiser has made amazing progress and hasn't been barking at dogs when they walk past. We haven't heard a squeak out of him in about a week and before that it had been dramatically decreased as well, He is listening to the commands and obeying them perfectly. Very proud of our little (big) puppy!

You've been an amazing help to help us help him!!! 100/10 recommend!

Trainer note from Allan:
The clients did a great job in helping their big German Shepherd learn to relax around other dogs. They saw the real personality of the dog come out and it's a credit to them how well they've all done.

Bo is very much improved. Allan was very helpful and explained things that I could do to help Bo feel safe and secure which led to a much calmer and happier dog.

Allan Foster dealt with: Puppy Management

This was our initial session with Allan - before we took delivery of our puppy. As first time dog owners we were very nervous. Allan's assistance was invaluable and made us feel a lot more comfortable. He was happy to answer all our questions, no matter how silly or small they were. A couple of days after we received our puppy I rang Allan for some advice about Alfie's nipping. Although not scheduled to visit us yet, Allan came over and helped us put some strategies in place to manage this issue. Overall Allan's assistance has been just great and made getting a puppy a fantastic experience for the whole family.

Alan was first class and explained everything clearly and with no rubbish. He clearly demonstrated any exercises and the expected outcome and then made sure we performed the same actions to get the same result.

Ongoing support is also excellent, with Alan responding promptly to any questions and queries.

I look forward to the continuing relationship with Alan and hope that others use his excellent services to not only resolve their dog issues but also resolve issues that the owner may be doing to cause the behaviour and ultimately end up with a happier family, home and dog with everyone working together.

Allan Foster dealt with: Destructive chewing that results in destruction of furniture, woodwork etc Hyperactivity Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Puppy Management Recall or not coming when called

Exceptional value for money! From the moment we met Allan, he began educating us on how to best communicate with our dogs when their behaviour was unacceptable.

We learned so much in three hours and I have been a dog owner for 35 years! Allan's training methods are based on common sense, research and years of experience. Most importantly, we do not have to use treats or other enticements to get the best out of our dogs and no harm is done to them.

From the day we finished training, the change in the way we communicated with our dogs produced immediate, tangible results. We now have two settled dogs who continue to learn and their people are more relaxed too.

Thank you Allan - I have already recommended you to two other people.

Allan Foster dealt with: Hyperactivity Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks

Training was mostly about teaching us how to become pack leaders and how this is more beneficial to the dogs than them having a disorganised pack. This was actually fairly straightforward as I think we knew a lot of it already, just needed to be more consistent and firm.

Allan explained all the training strategies very throughly. He explained it both from the dog's and human's perspective. He was patient and addressed our concerns until we felt more comfortable.
