Thank you so much for all your hard work helping Tolly, we can see significant improvements in lots of aspects of her behaviour. First, and probably most importantly, her aggression has definitely diminished – she tends to ignore other dogs and move away from them when her fear is aroused rather than attack them. When we see that she’s becoming fearful or aggressive your techniques give us greater control over her and helps her to relax, secure in our company. After a little work by us using your techniques she can now even run free with a dog she previously attacked mercilessly: it was so nice (and very emotional) to see her running free with this dog and for us to enjoy it with her. Secondly, she has stopped chasing our cat which is marvellous because tension around the house has now gone and we see more of the cat who is a beloved pet too. Overall, she seems calmer, more self-controlled and willing to obey our commands: grooming her is much easier – must do more of that!

We were very impressed with your skill and approach to dog training (and to pet owners!). We are determined to do our best to continue your good work and reinforce what she and we have learned from you. Our family life has improved significantly – we know we can’t let our guard down but as a result of your work we can enjoy a much happier family life with our much loved Toller.

Thank you for your invaluable help and support in altering the behaviour of our dog who was prone to aggression with other dogs. Your expertise, care, and calm advice has altered her behaviour to the extent that she is more controllable with other dogs and aggression is avoided. The distraction techniques you have taught her are even effective on our cat! – Not a bad outcome for a toller!

“Thanks so much for all your helpful hints and ideas for working
with Hugo. I’ve been out and bought a long line today to sort out his recall
and I am working on the other problems as well. I think we have a way to go to
stop him lunging and shrieking at other dogs but using your technique I managed
to get past a couple of dogs this morning without too much trouble! There’s
hope for him (and me!) yet. ”

“I can never thank Helen enough for all that she has done for me and Fitz. He is a very special boy and she’s made him even more special. The thing that has impressed me most, apart from the obvious benefits of having a well-mannered, happier dog, is that Helen tailors her training approach to each individual dog and circumstance. It is not a one-size fits all approach, she really listens and works with you and your dog to find the best solution. Helen, you rock! ”

“Wanted to say a great big thank you for today. It went so much better than I could have imagined. You really are a super trainer and without you Skye would not have had so many opportunities to try and be a ‘normal’ dog. You have no idea how much your intervention has enriched the lives of both of us. really glad you moved closer”
