Whatever the scenario you find yourself in, we can help by revealing an effective gentle communication which all dogs understand. Once you learn and adopt this communication, your dog will look to you for guidance in each and every area of their lives. As a result of this positive communication, all undesirable behaviour will disappear to create a happy, calm and positive relationship.

Thank you for helping us to decide on whether we were suitable for rehoming a rescue, Cassie. You asked super valuable questions and really listened to our concerns. You helped us to make a conscious choice about what is right for us and take the steps to determine that we were doing the right thing. Ultimately we decided we weren't ready to be a 2 dog family, and we're so glad to gain this insight before taking on a commitment to a second dog. Thank you so much for your advice and support. - Mark, Jane, and Winston

Cassie is so great at thinking outside the box. She has a really flexible approach to training and finds what works for you and your dog. I highly rate her

The communication was wonderful. They sent weekly reminders about the classes and would even send us a text before the class started. They were happy to answer any questions and would even stay behind after to go through any concerns I had with my dog’s behaviour at home. Tara was amazing and soooo great with buckwheat. Would happily go to another class that she was teaching.

We are so appreciative of the private dog training we did with Alicia and Cassie. They are both incredibly knowledgable and professional in their approach, and both went out of their way to provide additional help and support. Our great dane has benefited immensely from this training and we couldn't recommend this service more highly!

I wanted some help with my new rescue dog’s on-leash walking manners. A week after a single one-on-one session with Tara, and it’s like I’m walking a different dog. No more pulling! She gave me some great strategies to help with reactive behaviours and some really simple tricks which just make life so much easier. Walks are now so much more enjoyable, and he’s gone from constantly pulling and paying absolutely no attention to me, to walking on a loose leash and constantly checking in with me during the walk. The one in one session was a great investment.

Thanks for offering training using modern science-based animal training methods! Such a refreshing change from the outdated, harsh methods and so much more effective, and fun!
Cassie was absolutely brilliant! I have been struggling with barking with my 6yr old anxious staffy for years. We felt like we had tried everything and Cassie came and it felt like she gave us those last few missing puzzle pieces. As soon as we started enacting her advice we have had a massive improvement and have not looked back since. Not only this but she arrived right on time and was super friendly and compassionate with zero judgement. I've been to a lot of people with my little one and I can happily say Cassie is by far the best trainer we have been to.

After just one private session with our new puppy, we feel far more confident that we will be able to address some of our concerns thanks to the support and professional advice we received. We would recommend the company to anyone experiencing the need for some professional support and advice. The ongoing support has also been most helpful!
