I have just recently finished a block of four 1 to 1 training sessions with my rescue dog Faith. I am so pleased at how far both myself and my dog have come. Karen is an amazing dog trainer. She explains everything in simple terms and encourages both yourself and the dog. I am so glad I chose to do 1 to 1 training. Faith has changed so much, she is so much more confident and happier dog. She has come so far and i think we are cracking recall and she no long jumps for reassurance now we sit and wait.
Our last session of training was amazing. We did some agility and it was fab, Faith picked it up so well and boy was she so confident going through the tunnel. Thanks to Karen my rescue dog now is confident and she is so happy and ready for a good life.. I cannot believe how much my dog has grown with a bit of training.
I would recommend anyone who is thinking of getting a dog or like us help a rescue dog to do some training with Karen. It's amazing watching your dog grow and seeing that they are happy as their tail never stop wagging. I am sure our family rescue dog is going to have an amazing life now. Thank so much Karen you are an amazing and friendly women who loves seeing dogs thrive and grow in confidence.

Karen is a lovely woman and her sensible advice and guidance has been invaluable. She showed me how to make every training issue a game and to be consistent.
More importantly Karen explained how to view each experience from the perspective of the puppy. This has enabled me to head off potential problemss and allow Rosie to feel safe and secure with me.
Many of my friends have commented that she is a lovely, calm and happy dog. It has been worth every penny.

Excellent service. Karen listened and gave sound advice. Significant improvement in our puppy in days. Thank you. It reminded us of the need for a consistent approach. Our puppy is more settled and there is now a balance between the physical and mental exercise.

Thank you for your help. Since our session I have put the steps in place and have to say have seen a big difference in both Sapphire and Steel's behaviour.
I feel very confident moving forward now I have the necessary knowledge to do so. Steel has taken to to the find and seek games and loves it. We are trying out other things to find out what Sapphire likes. Thanks again.
