so much for all your help, it helps so much to understand what Bree
is doing and hopefully continue to make her feel able to cope better!"
you have told us has had a big impact upon Betsy in a very positive
that quite a few months have gone by since we saw you with Mutley
and I thought I'd just give you a quick up date... This week I had
been walking him off lead down a quiet byway when he suddenly ran
very close to me, and looking up at me as if to tell me something
and when I've looked behind me there has been a mountain biker flying
towards us - this has happened twice so I really feel he is trying
really hard. Of course I gave him lots of yummy treats and loads
of praise! .. we are really happy with his progress so far. Just
a little at a time!"
"We are really
pleased with her progress, thanks to you! .. She hasn't snapped
at one person since your visit. Regarding aggression towards other
dogs, the difference is amazing."
"I just have to
tell you about this as I honestly doubted that I would ever be able
to call Dizzy off a predatory chase once she was in full flight
but it happened!.. I never thought that anything would be preferable
to a running target, thank you for your support and advice we would
never have made it this far without it".
Nicky Courage, Poole
"I want to
say thank you so much for your help with the boys, especially Odie.
It's really changed our lives for the better"
let you know all is going well with Roxy, I have not had any problems
since we met and she has been with a lot of other dogs at the park
you might like to know Frodo is doing really well with the cats
he's now happy to say hello through the stairgate and
then wander off again
I'd recommend you highly - I think we'd
have really benefited if we'd been able to consult you about early
training when Frodo was a puppy."
so much for all your efforts and very full report and I am delighted
to say that we are making very good progress. Your time, help and
advice have proved invaluable.. all in all, we are thrilled.. It
was a fascinating afternoon and time and money very well spent thank
you very much indeed."
for yesterday's session with Oatley. It was fantastically useful
and we have been practising the techniques. His recall has already
Amy McKay Lyne,
for sending everything over and for such a helpful session yesterday.
It helps to have a better understanding of how Gracie's mind is
working on some of these issues.."
very much for today. Stan and I feel so much happier about going
forward with Inky now, and in the right manner, having listened
to your advice. Everything you said made sense, and I'm just really
pleased that Rachel recommended you. .. Again, thank you ever so
much. You were brilliant, and I'd recommend you tomorrow to anyone
needing help with their dog, or child, frankly..!"
very much for the classes, advice and recommendations given for
Sky. Her behaviour has improved massively since the beginning of
the program. Shes also a much calmer dog and a pleasure to be around
"I am so
delighted I got in touch with you. I am now back to enjoying the
dogs all of the time rather than getting wound up by them!"
just to let you know that Alfie is doing just great and I feel he
is probably 90% back to normal
We are all so much happier and
I can t thank you enough for all your help I am sure we maybe would
of had to find him a new home if things escalated any further."
Bev Pearce, Weymouth
"It has been
some time since you called to see Fin. Just an up-date - we have
a completely new dog following your visit!! He is still a bit wary
of strangers but is accepting people into the house and also when
we are out walking. He is also not as afraid of vehicles ... all
in all he is great."
"It was a
pleasure to meet with you today and I am grateful (as will be Helga)
for the wealth of information and the professional and friendly
way it was presented."
"I don't normally enthuse, but I have to say the small changes
in Helga's behaviour are dramatic."
thrown away the cans and bean bags and strangely enough the atmosphere
is so much calmer."
for all the help you gave me with Mabel.. She is responding much
better to most things ... what a relief!"
and information you have given us makes perfect sense and have already
started to improve things with Bess. Many thanks, you are a star."
to say a big thank-you for the Puppy and Junior Classes. Merlin
has benefitted tremendously from attending them; it's made him much
more attentive and he thoroughly enjoys doing the various exercises.
Out walking he's extremely obedient with the recall and "wait"
when I ask for that when he's actually walking along - it's good
to see. Also many thanks for all your help with any problems we
had; it's good to know that there's someone out there in whom one
has confidence. I always feel that if I throw a problem at you,
you'll have a good answer!"
"All in all
I am absolutely delighted at the progress and the change in Buddy
since we had our consultation so a big thank-you for your help and
say a big thankyou for the great lessons, we thoroughly enjoyed
Carol and John
Fishenden, Sturminster Newton
for the very enlightening training session. The benefits of your
approach are almost immediate!"
very much for your incredibly helpful classes - thank you, and I'm
sorry not to be able to say so in person. I think Tia is a really
lovely gentle dog - obviously brilliantly trained - and a great
credit to you."
so much for today I am so grateful to you and will keep up the good
to update and say that Jayla is making great progress. She has not
barked when coming near other dogs for a while now and I have been
very impressed with her progress. Thank you for you help."
is making fantastic progress with the noise phobia, it's hard work
but very much worth it
He's much, much calmer with [son's name]
now and quite often approaches him and sits at his feet. He's also
shown quite an improvement with people leaving the house. Overall,
we've seen some pretty substantial improvements in his behaviour
and are very pleased."
it is just like having a new puppy! Life has been completely different
for us and Molly since last week - she is MUCH calmer, more attentive
and no growling
So, thank you so much for putting us all back
for giving me the confidence to allow Twix to make such good progress
to say a huge thank-you for your help with Loki- life has been alot
easier since we got some know-how!! "
got to the point out on walks when if she is off the lead and sees
another dog, she runs up wagging ...We cannot thank you enough for
your help and advice..I was initially very sceptical ..but now,
seeing how it can work with what was such a problem is quite amazing.
with you very good and worth every penny!, thanks Kay"
so much for the time you spent with us earlier this month. It was
a great morning and we both felt much more positive after! It has
had a great effect..we are so much happier than we were, thank you
that day when you came over has been invaluable. Dylan has been
responding to 'down', 'stay' and 'in your bed' really well. Jumping
up also improving."
so much for such extremely useful training classes and I'm sure
we'll be in touch in the future when we need a helping hand.All
the very best"
to let you know that our new Bailey is a reformed character!! Thankyou
so much for your help again, he is like a different dog… his whole
behaviour has changed completely, we can not believe it in such
a short time"
was a revelation for me! I cannot believe how well Lilia did around
other dogs and it has given me a boost of confidence in my abilities
…I cannot thank you enough for all your help and patience up to
now and look forward to challenging myself some more!"
Di Joyce, Dorchester
very much indeed for your comprehensive report. We have been working
hard with Ollie ...we are already progressing well. I would like
to thank you for your time and efforts with us ... we really appreciate
"He has become
much more relaxed with other dogs and people. [The course was] very
useful for me and my puppy."
to mail you - sorry it's a bit late - but a great big thankyou from
Scruff and me. Scruff is a different dog (still the same character
though) - he's much easier to give up things … and on walks he is
now off the lead across fields.. the way it should be... thank you
thank you … your training has given us both the confidence we lacked
….. If I let him go off in front he now looks back at me quite often
in case there is a new command or hangs by my side looking up at
me … and is quite willing to accept other dogs as well as Sweetie…..
for the help with Ruby. All is going well - she is a different dog
-the jumping [up] has all but stopped and she walks much better
on the lead.Thanks again."
Nigel Baldaro, Crewkerne
"Just a quickie
to thank you for the help with His Lordship. I found the classes
very helpful and I think he is learning at last. I will carry on
with the practice sheets and hopefully the next time you see us,
he will be paw perfect, not pulling and off the lead! ....I would
very much like to do the Advanced class."
wanted to say thanks for the report you sent and all your help,
we wouldn't have believed it was possible to get Annie anywhere
near a dog a few months ago"
Sue and Andy
have been a HUGE benefit to both of them....Helen,many thanks for
all your help and advice,hopefully we'll see you again..Couldn't
be happier with how both dogs are now responding to your training."
enjoyed last week, I learned loads and my confidence improved enormously,
I think Saffy will benefit massively from what I've learned. She
is already much more relaxed with Lloyd which, after six years,
is an absolute miracle!!"
"Thanks. We've so enjoyed the classes, Helen. I cannot tell
you how different you are to the other class we tried. We only went
so fantastic we just don't want to get anyone else … however it
was so difficult to find someone in the first place and since I
have, I have had so many people say 'my god the change is amazing'
and 'what have you done?!' "
you're away on holiday now and apologise for not dropping you a
line sooner but would like to thank you so much for all the work
you did with Odie, he's a different dog...Thanks so very much once
again for all your hard work, it really has made such a difference."
for your help with Bert back in September. After the initial few
weeks there has been a dramatic change in Bert in the house and
aroung children. He is alot more chilled out".
