“Jo is a natural born trainer. She is so kind, calm and assertive, thoroughly professional and always punctual. She listened fully to us and she understood. She had the simplest of solutions for what to us seemed big issues, but they began working for our little dog, immediately. After just one 2hr session and a follow up, we witnessed a transformation: our dog was balanced, eating properly, walking on a looser lead and meeting and greeting other dogs more calmly. We cannot believe all this was achieved so quickly. The specially tailored paperwork reports and printed sheets are so well written-this is lady who really cares for you and your dog. Jo has worked miracles for us. We only wish we had found her sooner.”

“When we asked Jo to call and look at Molly I was really worried that we would have huge problems socialising her and due to her strength we were naturally concerned this would lead to defensive/aggressive behaviour.  Having owned dogs for over 30 years this was the first time we had consulted a dog trainer and behaviour specialist but recognised we had to take steps as soon as possible to develop good behaviour in Molly.  Jo’s techniques have been key to improving her responses to situations and people she considered frightening and threatening.  Molly, I believe, distrusted humans and without Jo’s professional help we would have struggled.  Three months on Molly is one of the happiest dogs I have ever known.  She loves life, us and other dogs.  The training is ongoing.  Her knowledge of recall commands is excellent – however she still chooses to ignore me if the alternative option is to play with another dog or puppy I am working on this with Molly and we will get there she is still young.  Molly is much more confident with visitors to the house Jo’s tips were invaluable with this as was her advice as to how Molly looked at certain situations and how we should respond.   Molly is now fully house trained, again this has been quicker due to us following Jo’s techniques. I can confidently say training Molly has been easy, training me much more difficult.  I believe there is no such thing as a bad dog if trained properly early enough – Molly is testament to this.”
