“Just a short note to say how happy we are with all you have done for Frankie, especially when he is being walked. He is so much calmer with other dogs and is still improving and when left alone for a couple of hours he is no longer as stressed, we can tell by the lack of drool when we get home! Also the treat ball is great it keeps him busy at meal times and he does not lose interest in it. If anyone I know ever needs a behaviourist I will recommend you straight away! Thanks once again.”

“Having brought our rescue dog home, a Beagle cross, it was evident that he needed training, not just the usual house training and ‘sit’ commands, but behavioural too. Whatever had happened to him in his past has shaped his behaviour and we wanted the best for him and for us, otherwise we probably would have found it hard to cope. Having looked at other dog training schools, where our dog would be one amongst many, and feeling this was not really appropriate, I found Jo’s website and knew that she was the trainer we and he needed. Jo was so knowledgeable, and so obviously interested in our dog and in us that we knew we had made the right choice. She has an individual approach to training dogs, which means that she adapts her techniques and skills to meet the dog’s needs. Her obvious passion and heart for dogs is so evident that her training is fun, informative and successful. She helped us turn our shy scared rescue dog, into a wonderful family friend. She goes beyond the command words and gets in deep in to the behavioural aspect of the dog and therefore his training needs. We cannot recommend Jo highly enough.”
