An Excellent Grounding!

We have just completed our “Small Paw Etiquette Puppy Class” a 6 week course, which gave our 4 month old puppy “Joe” an excellent grounding. We too benefited from the course in development and training techniques, which we will continue with over the coming months. The course also provided good socialisation skills for a young pup. Louise clearly has a passion for dogs, she makes the classes fun, all the pups love her and her training skills can only lead to a happy, well behaved adult dog.

Well Done!
I couldn’t recommend enough the experience for both you and your dog. Patience, logical and easily explained, Louise makes you a better owner/trainer and more importantly Eddie came on leaps and bounds and our relationship and understanding has improved both our learning and training. Well done Louise and Eddie.

A Wealth of Knowledge

Louise offers really great training through a reward based programme. Our dog responded well to the positive reinforcement. Her love and passion for dogs is obvious. Louise, has a wealth of knowledge about dog behaviour and is able to differentiate the behaviour of various dogs in the group and knows how to help each owner in carrying out the training tasks. Her knowledge is also demonstrated in providing useful tips to enhance good behaviour in dogs. The class summaries together with the suggested homework are invaluable.

Positive and Driven!

Louise Stapleton is a very positive and driven dogtrainer and it’s nice to see she loves all dogs, little of big, young or older. The dogs really like her and within a few minutes dogs are naturally coming to her. We are very happy to visit Louise regularly with our little dog because he is learning but also having a great time!

Highly Recommend

Our dogs love to train with Louise. They are happier and more motivated to work with us than before the training sessions with Louise. We will absolutely continue with group classes and can highly recommend also private classes. We love how well Louise works with different kind of dogs and are happy that she always has time for questions.
