Absolutely amazing course for puppies.  A great introduction to training, socialisation and mental stimulation.  Wow, what a difference in my little pup in just five weeks.  Trainers are outstanding with very caring and nurturing ways, encouraging owners as well as the puppies.  Thank you

Karen came out and did a puppy visit when we got Pedro.  We'd never had a dog before and had no clue what we were doing.  She really helped us to make the right choices for us and Pedro.  She even called me when I was having a meltdown one day!  He also attended puppy classes and started off as shy and he's now a confident, well-behaved little puppy who loves coming to classes

Katherine and Pedro

We had a puppy visit from Karen when he was 8 weeks old as we didn't want to encourage any bad behaviours. It was a very positive visit and he has already shown improvements only 2 days later! 

Fay and Albi the Working Cocker Spaniel
75% of the way through the Puppy Foundations course and it has been excellent.  The approach and methodology from Karen and Phil has been outstanding.  Very friendly, funny and down to earth with a real understanding of the individual puppies.  Great stuff.  Thank you.
      

Andy and Poppy the Border Collie
As we have never had a puppy before, we asked Karen to come out for a home visit.  Karen was really friendly, helpful and informative and Alfie loved her. We are looking forward to taking Alfie to the puppy classes"
