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.

Bella the Cocker Spaniel

We soon realised why our much loved pet found meeting some dogs scary and Sally explained clearly the techniques we needed to adopt to change her behaviour.

Scruff the Schnoodle

Scruff the Schnoodle
What he craved was the opportunity to be led, so he could relax, safe in the knowledge that we, as his new pack, would deal with whatever the streets of Bristol might bring – children, scooters, cars, bikes and, in particular, other dogs.

Sophie the Cockapoo and Suzie the Cavashon

Already, we can see an improvement in calmness and behaviour of both dogs and how willing they are to follow our lead.

Bear the Staffy Puppy

Bear the Staffy puppy
Never having had a puppy before and being unsure what we would need in the way of equipment etc your advice has been practical and really helpful.

Sasha the Staffie

Sasha the Staffie
Today has been so peaceful - not one bark at the television and no barking at the window!

Lottie the Cockapoo

Lottie the Cockapoo
We would like to thank you for the benefit we have gained from our session with you and the difference it has made to Lottie's behaviour

Theo the Sharpei/Rottweiler/Staffie cross

Theo the Sharpei/Rottweiler/Staffie cross
After coming home and finding my house had been destroyed again. I was at my wits end and desperate for a solution. I called Sally and she agreed to see him.

Oscar the Springer Spaniel

Oscar the Springer Spaniel
Within 30 minutes of meeting Oscar Sally had him completely under control and began the more difficult task of re-educating and retraining me!

Hugo and Alfie

Sally with Hugo and Alfie
I was exhausted: five weeks from adoption, little pup (now named Hugo) and Alfie were both running rings around me. Friends recommended Sally - well, what a blessing!

Charlie the Parson Jack Russell

Charlie the Parson Jack Russell
Our first meeting with Sally was just over a week ago and after following her expert advice he is a much happier little dog. It is a pleasure to walk him, he is improving all the time and I am surprised how quickly he is learning now that I know how to communicate with him!

Meeko the German Shepherd

Meeko the German Shepherd
I never thought that in just a few hours I would see my dog walking calmly on the lead or waiting patiently as I walked through doors. But that's what has happened and I feel so relieved and excited to continue on with the training!

Rosie and Jerry the Ridgeback/Alsatian cross and Jack Russell

Rosie and Jerry the Ridgeback/Alsatian cross and Jack Russell
I could hardly believe that within a few weeks Rosie had learnt all Jerry's faults and he was learning none of her virtues. I very soon possessed two badly behaved dogs!

Disa the Elkhound

Disa the Elkhound
I know there is no excuse for my dog’s behaviour and I also know that it was not my dog’s fault but my own fault for letting things get to this point.

Rory the Irish Setter

Rory the Irish Setter
I wish we had met you when we first brought Rory to live with us, we would have saved a fortune on puppy classes, trainers, different leads and harnesses, and treats, none of which worked with him

Neige the Utonagan

Neige the Utonagan
UPDATE: It was a very emotional moment, in the park, on this beautiful and sunny morning. I let Neige off the lead and she didn’t run away, didn’t drive crazy running around, didn’t look for distractions. She focused all her attention on ME, doing anything to PLEASE me.

Jasper the Cocker Spaniel

Jasper the Cocker Spaniel
I had called in a couple of behaviourists but they just got him to do what they wanted by giving him treats and this made his stealing worse.

Three little pups

Myself and my parents had gotten three puppies at the same time. When we got all three dogs together it was pandemonium.

Reggie and Nellie the Beagles

Reggie and Nellie the Beagles
The moment she walked into our house I began crying with shock when I saw what an amazing, magical effect she had on our naughty dogs!

Wilson the Collie/Labrador Cross

Wilson the Collie/Labrador Cross
Behaviours we had encouraged, accepted and ignored had produced a very insecure and highly anxious dog, which unfortunately placed him (or so he felt he had to be) Pack Leader with aggressive tendencies.

Ted the German Shepherd

Ted the German Shepherd
Ted very much dominated everything and anyone in our lives inside and outside the home.
