We have just completed our puppy training with Donna. I can not recommend her enough. Penny loved her lessons and I feel like I've learnt so much as well, Donna was very knowledgeable and helpful.

After a few sessions with Donna I feel so much more confident with Kobi.

He has definitely lacked confidence in some situations and Donna has helped me manage them in a calm and relaxed way.

We booked in to have 1-2-1 with our staffie pup. We wanted to have better lead walking with him. He loved playing the games that Donna planned. We continue to play them at home. Thank you so much for your help we have learnt alot.

Thank you Donna for helping us train Luna our golden doodle. In just 4 weeks we went from a pulling dog that would not come back to us when called, to a dog that is a pleasure to walk and returns after her playtime. I will certainly recommend your skills to anyone needing help with their dog training . Paul & Luna 

Dog stood with owner

Thank you so much for all your help! I honestly didn’t think I would be able to get to this point after everything with Pip and Barney being attacked. I wouldn’t of got this far if it wasn’t for your help and I cannot thank you enough for that.
