“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.”

“Jo is just ‘Amazing’… We are sad to think that our sessions have come to an end but are now looking forward to carrying on developing the skills we learned in order to bring up our adorable puppy. We have gained a vast amount of knowledge about doggy behaviour and their likes and dislikes. It wasn’t just myself and my husband that was learning, Jo also taught the children how to not only love your puppy, but how to be safe around your puppy too. Jo has an amazing talent and is a lovely person to deal with, she was always very positive, natural and was always at the end of the phone if we needed her. I would recommend her to anyone… Thank you Jo. xxxx”
