Poorly Fitted Harnesses
Harnesses are like a pair of shoes, a badly fitted one can effect movement, rub and generally be uncomfortable. This can impact how dogs walk, their behaviour in general on the lead and for puppies how they grow. It can encourage pulling to…Keep reading
Our whole training experience with Jo was brilliant. Her sense of humour made it fun to do and we thought of it as training for ourselves not just for “Alfie” our 4 month Labradoodle!! Her refreshing approach to training was a bit of an eye opener for us. She explained the psychological aspects of dog behaviour we had never even considered. The body language of dogs was extremely interesting. She always was at hand by phone,text which was very supportive. The modern positive methods proved very successful and our old fashioned ideas we had were soon put to bed. We would definitely recommend Jo to anyone who wishes the training without question. The days spent out in the local park proved successful and was essential in our opinion which added some variety. Jo always gave more than we expected especially with regard to time taken to explain or demonstrate a point. All in all it was a great experience which we could not have coped without. Thank you Jo.

Jo is without a doubt the best, most current, most knowledgable trainer and behaviourist I have ever worked with. When we first got our lovely Spanish rescue dog, Panhandle, I was given very poor advice by another ‘behaviourist’. Everything they told me to do made her worse! She was becoming more and more stressed, barked at people in the street, lunged at dogs and I was getting injured (accidentally) by her on a daily basis. I did everything I was advised to do and nothing helped. By the time I had my first visit from Jo, I was exhausted, sore, in tears and ready to give Pan up (*sob!!)
From the very first behaviourist session with Jo, Panhandle showed signs of improvement. Jo is so kind, never judgemental and explains everything so clearly. NOT all behaviourist are the same!! The people I used before, I now know, are extremely out of date and out of touch in their (always reward based, but not scientific or even logical) methods.
Whilst it takes work, time and money, having clear, kind methods that work so well make it all so worth it. Jo really excels in her work with rescue dogs and with so many now being shipped in from Europe, I strongly recommend Jo above anyone as your go-to. I have such a happy dog now, we are so much more bonded, I adore her and only very rarely get an injury!! Mostly my fault these days for forgetting she’s still learning, silly me!
If anyone wants to message or ask me anything about my experience with the first trainers and how Jo was so different then please feel free!
