The bond between you and your dog is special, so wouldn’t it be amazing if you could understand what your dog was thinking and be able to use this knowledge to communicate with them by helping our four legged friends make the right choices in all situations, even when they may feel under pressure, stressed or threatened.

I bought my rescue dog to Amy to help me build a bond with my dog and learn training skills. Amy always made training fun and looked at real life situations like car noises and gonig to the vets which really helped my Labrador. Shel loves the vets now and I truely believe its because of this training.

Excellant professional service 10/10. would definatly recommend. We have a 10 month old Border Collie and we needed help with his walks as he was “fixated” on a field. Amy helped us understand the reasoning and that our collie, Charlie was actually really nervous and anxious and later learnt the best loose lead walking solutions and the click a treat works fantastic. Me and my partner were very pleased with the serivce and will continue to train Charlie’s loose lead walking the best way possible so he will be a happier doggy on his walks in future. – Rachael Wood –
