Our Staff cross Jimmy was highly reactive to other dogs during his walks & we could only make very slow progress with trying to control him. Graeme introduced us to the slip collar & its correct use & quick recognition of trouble trigger signals. Although he still has episodes his walking is much improved & he is much calmer & more controllable around other dogs, so are we!

We have a moody French Bulldog and to be honest we started to think our dog had serious behavior issues that were out of control, one minute our dog.. Jeff was cute and cuddly and without warning he would turn into a possessed angry dog literally he would have a frenzy! Every time we took him for a walk there would be an episode, in the past we have taken Jeff to dog training class, …read more

  I have taken a short while to write as I wanted to see if we really had made the right decision in asking Graeme to help us… It’s been an extraordinary time! Our understanding of Leo and his responses have helped bring some calm, and for me especially, some confidence. Could you let Graeme know I am leading not following! Leo responds in his bolshy/barking way but how we all respond (for the most …read more

Graeme came to work with our two collies, one nearly 14 so “an old dog…. new tricks” and one five year old.. They both had quite different issues but after a day spent with Graeme, we realised that he should change his name to “husband training”! We still have some way to go but the dogs are responding really well to the techniques we learnt. The dogs were tired out and slept for hours afterwards… …read more

Graeme travelled up to Edinburgh in August to spend time with Mariela and I and of course our beautiful girl Mia. Mia is a west highland terrier / bichon cross with some behavioural issues and after two unsuccessful attempts from previous dog trainers it was time to call in the big guns! Graeme was able to help us understand why Mia acted in the way she did and offer us excellent guidance to better manage …read more

Amazing! We asked Graeme to help us with our dogs Monty (Old English Sheepdog) and Alfie (Cavachon). We couldn’t believe the difference so quickly. Monty only jumped up once at the TV with a programme showing dogs, unlike all the time. He had second thoughts and stopped. If we hadn’t seen this we would have said it must have taken several takes to do this. He doesn’t pull so much on the lead and whereas …read more

Graeme came to visit us to help with our dogs Buddy and Ruby. We believed Buddy to be a lost cause, a vet having told us he has a canine version of ADHD and autism. Ruby was scared of her own shadow and both dogs were rescued from a puppy farm. Needless to say they have awful mental health issues but we refused to give up on them. We had tried everything, Buddy had even …read more

My husband, Chris, has already posted a review but I wanted to add a few words. Chris said on the day you visited us that “it was the first time he’d ever totally felt in control of our dog”. She’s 6 and we’ve had her since being a pup. It is now 9 days since you visited us. We have a different dog – well actually different owners! We’re practising being more stubborn than she …read more

Not bad for a Northern Monkey part ii Graeme visited us in early May to help with our 3 small terrors sorry terriers and my wife Sue and I thought it time for an update. Monty is far more confident in himself the yellow nervous harness and lead have been a constant source of conversation in Stanford but more importantly it had resulted in a lot less aggressive behaviour from our boy. The lead or …read more

I’ve waited a few days before writing this review, I wanted to take Harley for a walk that would challenge us both. Historically Harley had wanted to attack other dogs she came near when on the lead. After the session with Graeme I have just taken Harley through a field full of dogs, some on lead, some not, without a hint of excitement from her or wanting to get at the other dogs. We also …read more
