Clever Dog Obedience Training

I have attended Sally’s Puppy Foundation course with my lab and we have now moved onto the Bronze Good Citizen Award. We both love going to Sally’s classes. The classes help you to understand your dog and their way of thinking, so it’s not just the dog that is being trained but you! They are 5 other dogs in the class we go to, which is a great number for dog socialisation, training and fun. Sally has a vast knowledge and understanding of dogs so she is always able to offer the right advice in any aspect. She is passionate and caring at what she does and I would thoroughly recommend taking your dog to her class.

Transformed 7 month old untrained collie.

I took my wayward rescued collie to the Good Citizen training classes. I wasn't sure if I would ever be able to control him around others. Sally was able to show me how to keep him calm and focused enabling us to learn together. We progressed so well we were able to join the Wag and Tone classes. My dog could work off lead, concentrate on me and do the exercises at the same time as 5 other dogs in the hall. I wouldn't have been able to do that without the classes. Sally has a broad range of knowledge and always uses kind reward based training. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her training.

I have a border collie who is very reactive particularly when competing in dog agility. Sally has shown me how to try and regain focus using food as a distraction and positive reinforcement methods. She spent time with me while I queued at a show so she observe and assess my dog’s behaviour. Even in a short time my dog was responding to Sally and when I tried this method we did manage some focus on me rather on the surroundings. Sally is very calm person and understands dogs. She has a gentle manner and finding someone who has had experience of reactive dogs has made me feel that there is hope for the future. I would definitely recommend her.
