Frank was a full of beans puppy when we first met – he was adorable. Faye was keen to get put the work in to give him the foundations of good manners and behaviour. We worked together for 6 sessions and due to my puppy training and Faye’s efforts we achieved a perfectly trained puppy who was loving life!
As soon as we bought our lovely puppy, Frank, I knew that investing in training him properly was essential for his development and for him to have a healthy happy life with us. Upon recommendation, we contacted Hound Training and booked him in to start almost as soon as he came to us, at just 12 weeks old.
Working with Emily was an absolute pleasure from the very beginning. The sessions were fun and enjoyable with homework given each week for us to practise ahead of the following weeks session. Her knowledge and passion for her job clearly shows and she was able to provide help and advice with Frank’s problem areas, allowing him to quickly progress and develop into the happy, well-behaved dog we have today.
Many of our friends and people who meet Frank comment on how well he behaves. His obedience of the basic commands such as sit, stay/wait, down and walking to heel is impeccable – we’ve even used the learning techniques Emily taught us to teach him new things such as barking on command, ‘dancing’ (standing up on his hind legs then walking backwards) and down.
I’ve recommended Hound Training to many new dog owners, especially those struggling with traditional group ‘puppy classes’ which can be extremely distracting for both the dog and owner, and will continue to do so. Thank you Emily!
