Filmwork Testimonials

What a great trainer of dogs. One can see a great difference in Cobber (and Sam). When we came to you it was Cobbers last chance as he was so wild and willful, having no luck with other trainers your training proved to be pivotal in changing his behaviour but not his soul. You undertook not just training Cobber but also showed a young lad (Sam) the essence of how to be a good trainer and owner. Your training has been great, and both, Cobber and Sam enjoy it each week, not just the training but the company of the other classmate, both four legged and two legged. Thanking you.

Puppy preschool – a good idea or not?

Often puppy preschool groups are socialisation only classes, where (hopefully) small groups of puppies are interacting together.  Often, for some, these classes can be stressful and chaotic for both pup and owner.  Because of their age and limited mental capabilities...

Louise is awesome, she understands how dogs think and is a wonderful trainer for humans as well. Dog training is the highlight of our dog Coco’s week. She loves Louise (all dogs do) and learns something new each time.. Training has made her a happy and well behaved dog but also allowed her to keep her spirit and personality. Last but not least, training is fantastic fun for humans and dogs alike.
