TESTIMONIALS

We have had 1:1 sessions with Emily, both face to face and online, for our young maltipoo Coco since she was only a couple of months old. We are now attending the follow on training classes. Emily's friendly yet highly professional approach, her knowledge and experience, and her suggestions and advice given in sessions and via email have been well tailored to Coco's personality and behaviours, and have been extremely helpful. We've come a long way with Emily's help and will definitely continue to work with her.

Duke and I were excited to discover that Emily was running group courses locally.  The weekly classes were small which was great in terms of having space to work on training with older puppies.  We also needed to book a private session with Emily in the park when Duke reached adolescence to help with his recall.  This 1:1 training was reassuring and I felt positive afterwards that with her help we could move forward.  Emily is kind, patient and clear with her instructions, I would highly recommend booking any training classes with her.  Thank you, Emily!
