Tracy & Bella (labrador) – Oct/Nov Foundation 2017

Amazing foundation course for my chocolate lab Bella (1yr old) who is very energetic. Wanted to socialize her with other dogs as she was getting a little hyper on her lead when meeting other dogs. I can’t believe the transformation with Bella during the 8 weeks, she’s learnt lots and I’ve learnt how to handle her better on her lead. The harness has really helped recommended by Kate and it was great to see Bella interacting with other dogs. A wonderful environment full of extremely friendly people and very cute dogs. Thank you Kate for the tips, advice and support. See you at the Intermediate …

Sarah & Frank (Border Terrier-Foundation Course 2017)

Kate, who runs the course is friendly and full of good advice and is happy to answer any questions you have, no matter how obvious the answer might seem! At the class, there is just the right amount of dogs/puppies to allow you to socialise your pooch, but not too many that it becomes loud and unmanageable. Classes are split into puppy play time, tricks, basic training drills and techniques and question and answer sessions. Instructions and tips for training were really clear and all based on positive reinforcement. Frank our loud and anxious border terrier puppy, has really benefited from the training and socialisation. Would definitely recommend to anyone with a new dog or …

Denise & Daphne (Irish Setter.Perfect Fit Harness)

After meeting Kate at the Middleport Mutts event, I contacted her to get my dog fitted for a Perfect Fit harness as Kate is a local supplier. The harnesses come in three different pieces of differing sizes so can be mixed and matched to get the correct individual fit for each dog. My dog now has a comfortably fitting harness which stays in place. I can not only highly recommend the Perfect Fit harness but also the service Kate …

Vera & Nana (Bijon Frise – Foundation Course 2017)

Kate and the team are really friendly and professional. They all like dogs and easy to talk to. Myself and my dog (aka Nana) had a great time attending the foundation course. She loves the way the lessons are since she is a treats driven dog. And the play sessions are great fun as well. Dogs can be socialised and play with each other. Owners can get to know other as well. I definitely recommend everyone to take the sessions. Most importantly, I can see a huge difference on Nana’s behaviour and I have a closer relationship and understand of her …

Elise & Mira (Whippet – foundation course feb/march 2018)

Mira my whippet is very shy and timid, she has come a long well in class though still nervous, Kate was very good with her and approached her slightly differently allowing her the space she needs. Mira has learnt to play with other dogs and learnt that a tunnel and a ramp are not the scariest things on the planet !! Her obedience has become much better and i felt she enjoyed the learning process …

Laura & Lexi (Cockapoo – 1:1 sessions)

Lexi is a 4 year old cockapoo. When she was a tiny puppy she had an encounter with a small boy which left her nervous of boys, she adores girls. It wasn’t too much of a problem because out on walks she would just give them a wide berth, but then my Goddaughter had a little boy 2 years ago. She was really nervous around him and if he approached her would growl and bark. Enter Kate. She spent more than an hour with us and persuaded Lexi that time spent with a little boy can be a rewarding experience. She also emailed some other training points that I could follow up with and I’m happy to say that Lexi is now much more relaxed around little boys. Thank you Kate. Great …
