What a fantastic trainer Claire is, her laid back calm approach is brilliant and has worked miracles with my little chihuahua Maizie and given me lots more confidence. Where would we be without you Claire! Thank you so much for everything you have taught us 😊 Till the next session !

We attended both puppy classes and 1:1 training with Claire for our little terror Ronnie! She has really allowed us to build confidence when out and about with our very reactive schnauzer. Even though we have completed our training, Claire is still available to give us hints and tips when we needed which is brilliant!

Claire came to me after I requested advice for a puppy who was showing resource guarding habits. Claire came with a mountain of knowledge and looked at all aspects of my puppies habits, behaviour and lifestyle. The training strategies have worked wonderfully, and at each session Claire spent time supporting and demonstrating moving forward with improving this behaviour so it didn't become a habit. These sessions have given me a deeper understanding of my puppies behaviour and has made our home happier for myself, my puppy and my children...ThankYou Claire 🥰

I was fortunate enough to adopt a dog earlier this year . I knew beforehand she was highly reactive and also having owned the same breed previously I was quite aware that she came with a high prey drive !!! However, there came a time when I knew I needed help .My dogs well being and happiness is my upmost priority , so after a lot of research I finally found Claire who met my high standards of being an ethical trainer. The exercises I was taught and the way things were broken down so it was easy to understand was a huge eye opener for me. I feel that all of this ,over the last 5 months, has completely transformed my dogs life for the better and we now have a deeper bond and understanding of one another.Claire also helped me in my decision to totally overhaul and change my dogs diet and the difference in her is phenomenal. Claire is ever the professional , confident and calming in her nature .when you have a reactive dog and struggle daily , a calming person is exactly what you need to help guide you . Claire not only helped me to train my dog ,she also helped me to overcome my anxieties .I'm sure that claire being the humble woman she is would just see this as doing her job but for me and Dizzy it's so much more.she has given me confidence and shown me ways on how I can carry on evolving my relationship with my dog in the future . I cannot recommend Claire, the miracle maker ,enough 🙂

I've had 3 sessions of dog training with Claire and the difference in Lucy (my dog) was exceptional. From having more or less no recall, even after the first session and Claire teaching me so much, I could tell a huge difference in Lucy's behaviour. She is literally like a different dog. Thank you so much Claire for all your help and your support, you really know your stuff and I will be recommending you to everyone!

We were at our wits end when our Jack/Chi became aggressive. Claire's way of changing her behaviour made so much sense. It's not an overnight fix but we are seeing so much progress. I thoroughly recommend her.
