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.

Pippa the Miniature Poodle

Pippa the Miniature Poodle
We contacted Sally when we were at a loss of how to begin to train our new cheeky miniature poodle puppy. It was difficult to know whether we were doing the right thing with her and not making her bad behaviour (biting and growling) worse.

Huxley the German Shepherd

Huxley the German Shepherd
It is in no way an overstatement to say that a week of following Sally’s advice has entirely changed our home and our puppy. He is happier and the growling and snapping we were faced with has gone.

Ruby the British Bull Dog

Ruby the British Bull Dog
Despite taking Ruby to puppy classes, unfortunately her recall had become pretty poor, she was having times of getting over-excited and would run around like a lunatic and and jump on the furniture and worst of all would try to bite.

Fynn the German Shepherd

Fynn the German Shepherd
Following a deeply informative conversation we now have the tools to do right by Fynn. Within one day we saw immediate results. Sally showed us that in trying to do the right things we were actually doing the wrong things and making Fynn more anxious.

Daddy the Chihuahua

UPDATE: It’s been three days since our training began and not only has our dog's behaviour changed but the whole atmosphere of the house has changed.

Preparing for a puppy

Sally cuts through the confusion of all the different information out there, really helping us understand the behaviour of a dog and how we can do the best for our puppy.

Nellie the Staffy

Nellie the Staffy
We thought we were doing everything right, we were following advice from trainer(s), from reputable websites and videos but her improvement seemed to stop after around 2 months and we were beginning to pull our hair out. Our phone call with Sally completely flipped our perceptions of dog training and ownership on their head.

Roo

Roo
Your advice has been so insightful! I knew I was doing things wrong with my dog Roo but I didn’t realise it was mostly me who had to change but now I completely understand why!

Monty the Cockapoo

UPDATE: Last night Sally talked me through live via FaceTime how to approach this next hurdle. I was ready to take charge, be calm and most importantly follow the crucial steps and have patience.

Sonny the Shetland Sheepdog

Sonny the Shetland Sheepdog
Sally taught us to be in charge - for us to be top doggie - us looking after him, not the other way round.

Clay the English Bull Terrier

Clay the English Bull Terrier
It was incredible. Sally led us in the right direction. Sally's approach to the programme is on point, understanding the psychology of dogs and teaching them the right way.

Elvis the Sprocker Spaniel

Elvis the Sprocker Spaniel
Elvis had developed severe anxiety after a period of lameness and getting scared during a windy day whilst home alone.

Big King K the Rhodesian Ridgeback

Big King K the Rhodesian Ridgeback
Having been dog owners for more than 3 decades it was surprising how much we were able to learn from her and the logic behind the information was infallible. Sally's methods and approach are absolutely fantastic and the results speak for themselves.

Fergie, Dougie and Cooper the Collie and Beagles

Fergie, Dougie and Cooper the Collie and Beagles
I was having difficulty with my collie pulling on the lead and becoming nervous aggressive and lunging if he saw another dog whilst out walking. It had got so bad that I could no longer walk them together and would try and walk him early in the morning around the lanes and avoid main roads in the hope that I didn't meet another dog!

Rango the Lurcher

Rango the Lurcher
It’s clear that we’ve got a long journey ahead of us with our dog, but with Sally’s help, we’ve gone from regretting our decision to take on our boy, to really enjoying his company. And I really cannot explain in words, how wonderful that feeling is.

Hamish the miniature schnauzer and Ruby the Boston terrier

Hamish the miniature schnauzer and Ruby the Boston terrier
We had other trainers but their advice didn’t give us the results or make as much logical sense as Sally’s. We can’t recommend Sally enough!

Tin Tin the Utonagan

Tin Tin the Utonagan Cross
It was so lovely meeting you and I still see your beautiful 15-month-old dog in front of me, extremely well groomed and so very very well-behaved.

Bertie and Boston the Boston Terriers

Boston and Bertie the Boston Terriers
Thank you for the insight of how to train my Boston and Bertie. They are such wonderful dogs and I want to achieve everything you taught me.

Saffy the Golden Retriever

Saffy the Golden Retriever
In a few short minutes Sally established an atmosphere of complete calm and connection with Saffy. She has helped me reconnect with my dog completely. We now just need to keep practising!

Frank the Border Collie

Frank the Border Collie
The afternoon you spent with us and our dog (Frank) were very insightful. You certainly opened our eyes as to Frank's view point. It quickly enlightened us as to the root of our issues. Within minutes of your arrival, we saw how your techniques can work.
