Clients Dog Training Comments
Here are just a few comments I have recieved from clients. To read more visit:
Just thought I would relay an experience Glen and I had the other night while walking Lulu. We decided to go the other way to normal, down our street towards the main highway, many more houses, and it was dark too. We passed a house going one way and their dogs went berserk, and had to pass it on the way home and one jumped the fence and tried it’s best to get to us. I had food in my pocket and ended up throwing 4 handfuls at it to distract it, and Lulu was great during the whole mess – Glen had her leash, and she was definitely agitated but not aggressive back. Scared the bejesus out of me – certainly got my heart rate up, but we both felt all the lessons had paid off in one fell swoop.
Once again, our huge thanks for your guidance.
I have a 6 month old female english bull dog mastiff cross. She was such a nervy scared dog for unknown reasons, and i couldnt get her out the gate to go walking. I found Elaynes business card and gave her a call to come to my rescue! We talked on the phone for ages and immediatley I felt at ease and happy that someone was listening to me and could help me. I like Elaynes approach and ideas for our nervy dog. and after the first lesson I could see progress. She also gave me confidence in myself to tackle these problems and to feel good about myself. Every day has been a huge improvement.And every lesson we learn more and Marley the dog has become a different and more confident dog and I’m sure she is enjoying it as much as I am. I have also enjoyed the “coffees” after our lessons to go over things and chat. Great way to meet new people and new friends. It is great value for money the phone calls and txts are no trouble to her. Marley will be an ongoing challenge I think, but we are a much happier dog and family.

Elayne takes a practical and problem solving approach to dog training lessons. Further, she coaches you through what she has shown you so when you have “a go” there is a sense of mastery – a “learn by doing” approach.
Our dog breed is known to be “laws unto themselves”. However after our session with Elayne we felt that we were well on our way to becoming “head of the pack”. Elayne has kept in contact to reinforce our efforts. She continues to provide support and we think we are winning!
We can recommend Elayne as a highly competent and patient trainer who understands owners and their dogs. Consequently she is able to develop a personalized programme to suit both owner and dog which, in our situation, is leading to very satisfactory outcomes dogs who know we are boss! Ruby is very good. Poppy still thinks she is boss some of the time but she is getting the message. The time and money has certainly been worth the investment.
