"A perfect calm approach to my dogs behaviour"

Amy was so understanding of my dog's personality and adapted the training to suit him. He is already listening to me more and we are having fun learning together. I would recommend Amy for one-to-one sessions to anyone. Lucy

"Amy was very friendly and helpful and I felt at ease with her in my home"

Amy recently worked with me to help with anxiety issues and basic training for a Puppy which I was fostering.

I found Amy very friendly and helpful and felt at ease with her in my home. She helped me by showing me small training changes which had an incredible impact. Amy kept in touch between training appointments to ask how we were getting on and to answer any question's, I highly recommend Amy, I’m looking forward to working with her in the future! Jo

"She can be a bit of a handful"

I would just like to say thank you very much for helping me with Marti.  Having you come to my home for one to one sessions worked perfectly for both me and Marti as she can be a bit of a handful !!  You were very understanding and patient with both of us and gave me a lot of tips to try and after putting them into practice they are beginning to work.  Marti is already listening to me more and is not quite such a handful.  I would certainly recommend you to any of my friends who get puppies in the future and definitely recommend one to one sessions. Shirley
