Is your dog over excited?
If you have answered yes to any of the above questions, or you have another behaviour struggle with your dog that you would like to overcome and would prefer an individual training session with your family and dog or you feel your dog may not be suited to group training, then this service is for you!
Fantastic! Professional and reliable services for our furbaby. Leah is very knowledgeable
I really recommend training with Leah. We did the 3 week reliable recall workshop. You wouldn’t expect a fully trained dog after three weeks, but Leah shows you lots of games to play to improve your relationship with your dog and get them coming back to you.
Hamish my rottweiler loves her to bits!!
Thank you so much Leah! I have a very happy and tired Sid
Excellent service and Leah really spend’s time making sure my 2 dogs are well looked after and tired after their walk.
Thanks so much for your help over the past six weeks or so. We have really found the training beneficial and will continue to put it into practice in the months to come. We particularly liked the practical and realistic nature of your approach as it felt like it acknowledged that our dog is part of our family rather than a creature to be trained to behave in a very strict and structured way. Laylah decided to go off on a little adventure of her own in the forest this morning so I remember what you had said about always making a fuss of your dog when they come back, however long they have been away! It felt like she was gone for hours (probably no more than about 5-7 minutes) and she had clearly had a brilliant time as she came hurtling back down the track to me 😊 I was very relieved to see her back!
We also really appreciate all the handouts and follow-up information via email as there is such a lot to remember. Having these resources makes us feel able to carry on and work on little bits at a time, rather than having to do everything at once. We also loved the safety of the area and that the dogs got to run around together every so often. It really helped us to see how they reacted and have you on hand to guide us.
In terms of the ‘it would have been even better if…’ then there is really only the weather we would want less of! We liked the outdoor nature of the training as this felt much more realistic than being indoors and the distractions were all very real for us and the dog. The way you dealt with the weather and let us know if you were cancelling was great and we appreciated things being re-arranged.
We will definitely be back to the playground at some point in the New Year and maybe a hoopers course later in the year as Laylah seemed to quite like this.
Thanks again for all your help and willingness to continue to support us as we learn with Laylah 😊
Leah is an an amazing dog trainer, very knowledgeable about dog behaviour and training. My dog absolutely adores going for walks with her and his doggie friends (he’ll wait by the window looking for her!) Even although he is still a pup, he is very big and thanks to Leah’s help with socialisation and obedience courses, he gets along well with other dogs. We can not recommend her highly enough.
