Patch is a very energetic little Jack Russell terrier. Right from the word go we knew that we didn't want to be one of those people you see out and about where their dogs are more in control or indeed just uncontrollable. We took the decision to socialise Patch as early as possible and get help with basic training. We asked our local vets who immediately recommended Caroline and CardiffCanineCitizens as one, if not the best classes for dog training in South East Wales. So we booked Patch into the Puppy foundation class and off we went. Our first session included lots of theory and basic do's and dont's regarding your dog. All very useful information and immediately usable. We then took Patch along to the first actual session where we were flabbergasted to find that Patch could be taught to sit, lie down amongst other things in under an hour!!. The social side was really good too, Patch met a variety of other dogs, all bigger than him which has helped put him in his place! The lessons carried on over six weeks, and were always fun, and in a controlled environment. Whenever anyone had questions or problems Caroline would not only be able to tell you the answer but the underlying reason which made things understandable and left no room for doubt. Over the six weeks Patch has come on in leaps and bounds, he's a very sociable little dog now and is mostly very well behaved (He is a terrier so he does have a stubborn streak.. ) He knows whats expected of him thanks to things we learned in class and this in turn makes his and our lives better. We are so pleased with CardiffCanineCitizens that we've decided to take Patch along for further classes and now that he has his Foundation certificate we have already enrolled him up for the puppy returners Bronze level class. We cannot recommend Caroline and CardiffCanineCitizens enough!! A quick note - CardiffCanineCitizens dont just offer puppy training, but also work with adult dogs, rescue dogs and even have classes for dogs with problem behaviour. We understand that agility classes etc are also on offer so may go down that route too. Once again a huge thank you to Caroline. Regards Paul and Luca.Report this

Just to say a huge thankyou to Caroline for all her help with making my gorgeous girl Dora a good citizen. We have been through puppy foundation class and tonight completed the Bronze award. I had never had a dog before Dora and so did not have a clue where to start. Within days of having Dora I had a very helpful call with Caroline with some good advice, even at that stage. Through puppy class and Bronze I picked up loads of tips and advice on dealing with issues such as recall and house training, although that area still needs some work, and learning to control Dora more, for example when going through a door or at a road. It's been absolutely brilliant and Dora has come on leaps and bounds. Ooh and a huge thankyou for introducing Dora to the love of her life Pip. (the two little Shih Tzu's in the photo on here are Dora and Pip). They absolutely love each other. :-) Shame he's been done as they would have made gorgeous Shih Tzu pups. Thankyou again Caroline... I have a feeling we'll be back for silver.Report this

I have taken my collie puppy through the Puppy Foundation class, and also my older collie through Bronze, working for Silver and then hopefully for Gold. Caroline is patient and very knowledgeable - there have been many various breeds in the classes and all of them - and the owners - have been treated with respect and help with their differing problems. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Caroline to anyone who wants to train their dog, or who has any training issues. She is highly experienced and I can't speak more highly of her training methods.Report this
