We Will Definitely be Going Back!

We attended the 6-week puppy classes and absolutely loved it! Louise was so helpful and patient, both with our very large puppy and us! We felt totally supported with any questions or concerns we had, and we were always able to reach out for help if any problems arose. Even after the 6 weeks of classes, we still feel supported with check-up emails and tips to keep the training up. With so many options for classes, we will definitely be going back!

Delighted to Have Found You!

Our first agility class was excellent. Louise is a very professional trainer which I appreciate so much. The other dogs and their owners are all extremely nice. I have been searching for many years to find dog classes in this area that are professional, safe and enjoyable and I am so delighted to have found you! Looking forward to our next class.

Remarkable Level of Expertise

I am delighted with my Mastin puppy’s training.
The level of expertise is remarkable and has clearly been acquired through dedication and years of intensive experience and study. I am very impressed. Thank you Louise and Janina.

I only wish I’d come to you sooner!

I recently attended a workshop with Louise and Janina, what an amazing and fun experience! My two dogs and I learned so much, and that we may need a little more training to eliminate all the bad habits we have formed over the years. With some further training, tailored to our needs, I am confident that my dogs and I will have a far more satisfying, rewarding and safe life together. Thank you Louise and Janina, I only wish I’d come to you sooner!

Patient and Understanding
We took puppy classes with Louise for our first dog. He loved them and we learnt not only a few basics, but also the principle behind force free training and partnership with your dog. Now I’m back for help with a very nervous new rescue. Louise has been brilliant, very patient and understanding. After a private session I came away with a huge amount of follow up information, guidance and videos to help us on a journey to gentle socialisation. Highly recommended!

100% recommend

Louise and Janina were wonderful helping us with our puppy. He adored them and worked really hard with them to learn all the basic manners a puppy needs to learn, as well as helping us learn the skills to continue training at home. Would 100% recommend the DogSmith to anybody who needs a helping hand to train their dogs.

Knowledgeable and Fun Approach

We took two different sets of classes and Mati absolutely loved them! There could not be a more excited and eager dog every time the training started. Thank you, Louise, for your knowledgeable and fun approach – not only Mati is now well-mannered but he’s a star at agility!
