My dog, Hope, came from the Dogs Trust aged 5months. She had never been socialised and had BIG issues with other dogs which made going for a walk a nightmare. Advice from the Dogs Trust and a behaviourist did not help. Fortunately, I started training with Clare and Lydia. Clare assessed Hope at home and on a walk. The first thing she suggested was to use a harness rather than a gentle leader when walking. There was an immediate improvement and walking with Hope actually became enjoyable. We worked with Clare and Lydia for several months and by the end I was able to confidently work around Hope’s dog issues. The type of training they use makes you, as the owner, much more aware of what your pet is thinking and why they react and behave in a certain way , which makes solving problems much easier and leads to a deeper and happier relationship with your pet. I have no doubt in highly recommending Clare and Lydia to anyone who has a pet with behaviour problems or for routine training. In the future, if I get another dog I will immediately seek Clare and Lydia's help with any problems.
