What Dog Owners Say
Read below to see what my clients and their dogs think of my training and services.
Wendy with Mawgan & Cleo
Amy is a very likeable young lady of integrity. She has chosen a career which suits her well as she has a natural way with dogs of all breeds which enables her to bring the best out in them. She teaches using kind, positive reinforcement techniques to which dogs respond well. She is very good at explaining to her clients how to improve their handling skills in obedience, showing techniques, fun agility and Mantrailing. Her teaching (whether in a group situation or on a 1-2-1) is effective and fun. I can highly recommend her to anyone wanting to build up a better relationship with their dog - beginners and experienced owners alike - all can benefit from Amy's methods and knowledge.
Abi with Freya
We took Freya to the puppy classes with Amy. At some point in between courses felt we needed some support and reassurance with her training and booked a 1-2-1 session. The place for the lessons is great, there is no traffic around, making it very safe for the dogs. Amy took us to a fenced paddock which was ideal for a session off the lead. Two of her dogs assisted her in the session, which was great, just what Freya needed. We worked in recall in the presence of distraction while she was playing with her new furry friends. She gave me so many tips I found difficult to work on everything to start with but been putting into practice 6 tips in particular since the lesson. They have made such a difference! It’s like the commands have become clearer to Freya now and, in consequence, she is more reliable and responds way better when called, even when she is having fun. She also gave us tips to avoid stress around specific triggers. Amy seems to know Freya so well! She picked up very quickly what she likes or dislikes and we could adapt the rewards we give her accordingly. Freya loves her! Since day 1 every single tip Amy gave us has worked for us and made things so much easier. We received so much reassurance as well. She listened to our concerns and worries. We are so happy we have booked another 1-2-1 session for next week.
I highly recommend Amy as a dog (and human!) Trainer. Her classes are informative, well structured and above all fun for owner and dog. My labrador Daphne was a giddy 18 month old when I got her and one of the first things I did was to take her to Amy's classes. Daph improved immensely and you could see how much she enjoyed learning. Amy is extremely well qualified and has a natural empathy with animals, she's also incredibly patient and good natured with her pupils' owners!
Alan with Daphne
Amy is amazing she's always very calm and always understanding of people's and dog's needs. She never rushes anyone and she takes her time with every owner, you never feel pressured around her and the way she trains the dogs is amazing. The dogs love it and the people enjoy doing it. My Tilly does the good citizen training and mantrailing with Amy, she is always excited to go to class and she loves the mantrailing.
Amy’s a very professional, capable and friendly trainer. Sessions are fun, and even the least confident of dog owners are capable of getting results. My dog loved her from the start, which speaks volumes!
Claire with Bertie
Whatever problem you may have with your dog Amy always finds a way forward. She is always kind, patient and positive and classes are always great fun as well as being helpful and brilliantly organised so everyone can relax and progress quickly but without feeling pressured in any way. Best of all she helps you understand what makes your dog tick and how to communicate meaningfully to strengthen your bond and develop your relationship. I recommend her very highly.
Janet with Millie
I first met Amy about three years ago when I got my puppy Labrador, Marley. Marley refused to walk beyond the garden but now, through her support, training and dedication, my three year old Marley is not only walking confidently everywhere on and off lead, he has also passed Gold Kennel Club Good Citizens Award, and passed Novice Trick Training Award. He is now Mantrailing and doing Scent Training. None of this would of been possible if Amy wasn’t there for both of us. Amy’s patience, knowledge and energy has no bounds.
Martin & Mark with Marley
Amy is a calm, kind and patient trainer who uses only positive reward based training methods. She teaches a wide variety of activities for dogs of all ages and abilities from puppies upwards. Especially enjoyable and popular are her mantrailing sessions and I would thoroughly recommend them. They are suitable for all dogs and they really enjoy it. My dog loves them and it is exciting for the dogs to try something new and to go to so many different places.
Mary with Poppy & Anya
Amy is a brilliant trainer, kind and patient and so approachable. My dog has been with Amy from 3 month's old, he passed his puppy and bronze I'm so glad he can go on to do his silver with Amy. He also does mantrailing. Amy gives so much encouragement, he just loves to go training, made great friends looking forward to this year.
Kate & Brian with Albert
We have started training recently with Amy, having done the Mantrailing introduction and two further sessions. Amy is a kind, considerate trainer who has been extremely patient with both our slightly nervous dogs. Looking forward to continuing our progress. Thank you Amy
