Highly Recommend

I can highly recommend Louise and Janina’s classes. I took my dog through the Pet Dog Ambassador training and really liked the calm, positive, reward-based approach. I also took a Fun Scent Games class and my dog loved it, it was a fun way to mentally stimulate Buddy.

Thank you Louise and Janina 



Louise KirkSan Pedro de Alcántara

Very Professional Trainer!

We had a private session and took part of some of the puppy group classes – Louise is a great and very professional trainer! She gave us all the necessary steps to have a well-trained dog and really went the extra mile. It was obvious that she loves what she does and therefore does it with a lot of passion. Every class was followed up with an email summarising all the information needed to practice at home. The classes were a lot of fun and Quila, our puppy, loved Louise! Very recommendable for everyone looking for professional training!!!

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.
