Success stories

From aggression to lead pulling, from puppies to rescue dogs, from Chihuahuas to Rottweilers and all crosses in-between, I have experienced all sorts of problem behaviours. Read more about my methods in these testimonials from some of my dog training clients.

Rubus and Kizzy

Rubus and Kizzy
We were amazed at how quickly Rubus understood who was boss when you introduced yourself to him, and quite frankly, amused at the way he didn’t know what to do and froze, slowly collapsing down to the ground in incredible slow motion and wagging his tail when he got there!

Roxy the Cockapoo

Roxy the Cockapoo
Roxy was attacked at 4 months and so we blamed a lot of her behaviour on this and put our feelings onto what she thought she was doing i.e. hugging us, barking and running away,

Bailey the Poodle Cross

Bailey the Poodle Cross
We had tried trainers before contacting Sally, we had done puppy classes, group classes and 1-2-1s. Nothing helped our (now 1 year old) poodle cross.

Dexter the German Shepherd

Dexter the German Shepherd
UPDATE: Dexter is doing really well and now walks happily without his mussel. Here is a picture of him outside the local pub, watching the people coming and going without any barking.

Obi and Wilson aka white dog, brown dog

Obi and Wilson
It has been a positive experience enlisting Sally's expertise with our dogs, my partner and I had certain reservations about involving a third party. However, we knew we needed to do something so we could continue to enjoy our dogs safely.

Bella the Pyrenees Mountain Dog

Bella the Pyrenees Mountain Dog
Our Pyrenees mountain dog, Bella, has food aggression and ruled our house for many years. We had learnt to avoid situations not to upset her but since my daughter was born it was becoming more difficult to constantly avoid situations just to please Bella.

Zea the Golden Cocker Spaniel

Zea the Golden Cocker Spaniel
For anyone with a dog who recognises some if this behaviour in your pet just have a good long think about the possible consequences.

Cece the Husky-Labrador Cross

Cece the Husky-Labrador Cross
My husky-lab cross Cece had been pulling me around on the lead for almost three years since I adopted her. She has always shown on-lead aggression but it was getting worse by the day. The final straw came when I was out walking Cece and she lunged at another dog and started trying to fight it and I couldn’t take any more.

Boudi the Jack Russell

Boudi the Jack Russell
UPDATE: She doesn’t give a toss about fireworks! So happy about this. That tail is wagging more than I ever dreamed of.

Lucie the Black Labrador

Lucie the Black Labrador
After explaining the theory we got straight to the training, the techniques were easy to grasp and instantly our dog was behaving like a dog who had been trained all her life.

Bella

Bella
We felt so confident in your methods that we decided to rescue another dog and he's following in Bella's footsteps. I'm certainly leader of the pack now!

Sunny the Golden Retriever

Sunny the Golden Retriever
It’s just over a week since I called Sally in tears because my lovely 8-month-old golden retriever had bitten me yet again while out walking on the lead. And this time he did it hard!

Marley the Miniature Schnauzer

Marley the Miniature Schnauzer
Sally taught us so much and gave us a fresh approach to training. We’ve changed Marley’s diet, binned the treats & toys and re-established ourselves as “pack leaders”. He’s a much calmer dog now.

Milo the Cocker Spaniel

We still have a long way to go but I couldn’t be happier with the progress. Thank you Sally, you’re knowledge and experience has meant that Milo and me have a better relationship than ever before.

Gertie the English Bull Terrier

Gertie the English Bull Terrier
Sally met Gertie and showed us how she would expect her to behave and in a very short time we saw a very different dog indeed. With the techniques that Sally showed us we now have a dog who is learning to understand where she fits in to our family.

Remy the Jack Russell

Remy the Jack Russell
We adopted Remy, a three-year-old rescue Jack Russell, seven weeks ago. She was showing an alarming state of aggression to all visitors and we knew couldn’t afford to let her off the lead because she would attack.

Kia and Khan the German Shepherds

Kia and Khan the German Shepherds
We started lead training and after a few hours our dogs stopped pulling and started walking to heel on the lead. Now we can take them out daily without be pulled along.

Maggie the Golden Retriever

Maggie the Golden Retriever
Sally I want to thank you again as I would not have bred Maggie on her 3rd season, which is the best for first time, without your help. Maggie is a much more balanced girl now.

Lola the Black Labrador

Lola the Black Labrador
Sally explained that the dog needs to know we are in charge, it needs to be led not be a leader, it needs to know that it doesn't need to think for itself and we do the thinking. I thought about it a lot and what she was saying to me made perfect sense.

Luna the Border Collie

We had reached the end – she was lunging at every car and every dog we came across. We wanted a dog so we could all go out with her, but it was no fun anymore, hiding from other people/dogs – so just my wife or I would take her out on our own.
