Life BK (before Keith) was frustrating, demoralising and quite frankly, painful! Our beautiful Springer Spaniel, Spud, would pull so badly we suffered shoulder and back pain regularly. Desperate to let him run around we’d let him off the lead, call him back for him to completely ignore us and disappear for a good half an hour sometimes. So we resorted to keeping him on a long lead – this did us no favours at all.
Then, we found Keith. What a kind, calm and knowledgeable man he is. He sat and talked us through ideas he had for how we could make changes. I wasn’t always keen on the changes (figure of 8 dog lead) but he talked me through everything in a way that I trusted and thank goodness I did.
Keith then spent time with us in our local fields showing us, on a long training line, how to train spud, keep him close, bring him in and basically to become an incredibly obedient dog.
Life AK (After Keith), we have a beautifully behaved boy, we love our walks with him, I love seeing him enjoying running around and knowing that once I whistle those 3 pips, he will come straight back (or 2 to change direction!!). I can’t express how thankful I am to Keith, it really has made a huge impact on our lives as dog parents! Thank you so much.
With two fairly young labradors, one of whom is very dog-reactive, we had a very long list of needs which both Keith and Simon have helped us with. The Advanced Puppy Class is absolutely brilliant for reinforcing the basic training learned when they were very young pups, but also takes them on to the next stage. The classes are tailored to each dog’s needs on the day and Simon is brilliant at knowing exactly how much each dog can handle. We have taken both dogs to the Advanced Puppy Class to focus on different issues. It is perfect as there is so much space and the dogs can train but also socialise in a controlled and careful way. We had a really long One to One session with Keith with our older dog which not only covered the situations where he tends to react but which also corrected several other behavioural problems that we had allowed to develop. You can see an improvement immediately thanks to Keith’s advice. We are much more confident too. The advice given by both Keith and Simon is absolutely solid and we can’t recommend them highly enough!
Really friendly relaxed classes, but responsive to individual needs.
We’ve even started to take our 5 year old along to the ‘Advanced Puppy’ Class with our youngster.
The 5 lessons were great , I learnt a lot and Mabel has progressed. Working with her at home is great but the lessons with other dogs in close proximity is the real test. I have enrolled for the next courses for 6 month old puppies starting mid November.
Informative and friendly sessions, perfect for a newbie puppy owner!
Mabel & I enjoyed 5 weeks at the Puppy classes .
I learnt a great deal and Mabel never let me down .
Simon is extremely patient and can get all dogs to do whatever he asks them , extremely frustrating for an owner !!
You learn a lot listening to other owners and the advice
that Simon gives them .
Very worthwhile 5 mornings so I have signed up for another 5 weeks at the advanced classes .
I hope Mabel appreciates my efforts and continues to improve!!
Simon is fantastic. Really knowledgeable and makes classes fun. I love the flexibility of the classes, so you buy 5 and use those 5 sessions when it suits you.
We really need to book some more which we definitely will be doing in the near future!
