It's our first time being a dog parent. So we wanted help with training for our 6 month old collie. Looks like we hit the jackpot with Mad4Mutts Dog Training. Brilliant from first contact. Excellent advice. Tailored to your needs. We look forward to more sessions.

We really enjoyed working with Steve. He was very patient and knowledgeable and seemed to "get" Norman's personality very quickly. We have lots of work to do, but we can see an improvement in Norman's behaviour already. Thanks for the support!

Hi Angela, and thank you so much. Norman is a very sharp character, and he's made a fabulous start. I'm sure with all your hard work he's going to make rapid progress from here on in. Well done Norman! You're a star!

He met other puppies and loved it and provided him with plenty of opportunities to engage and learn new skills, as did we Very social and relaxed environment Very pleased and happily recommend

Hi Ian, Thank you very much. It was a pleasure having yourselves, and Hugo on the course. He learns very quickly, he's a real character and I'm sure with your guidance he's going to become a lovely well rounded dog. Good luck for the future, and you know where we are should you need us!

Steve is so great and nice to work with. I had got to a point with my dog where I just didn't know what to do with him, I didn't want to take him out near any other dogs. So I contacted Steve at Mad 4 Mutts. From the first chat on the phone to the first email, to meeting our first meeting at our house with him, everything has been great! Talking us through the training tips and exercises, guiding us through the why, we are doing these exercises. We've had two sessions with him and my dog has improved so much already. I also now have the confidence in knowing what I need to do and how I can help my dog. The way Steve's training suits each individual dog is brilliant and I can't thank him enough. I would definitely recommended him to everyone. His prices are also so reasonable, which is so thankful in this climate we are in. Thanks again from a very happy dog Mummy.

Have a dog Arthur who was struggling with some recall and attention ! After the appointment with mad4mutts we could see how much he enjoyed the training as well as how effective it would be . Would highly recommend them to anyone looking to get their dogs trained up as they offer spectacular advice that works for the dogs and owners alike!

Hi Keegan, It was great working with yourself and Arthur. He is one of the friendliest pups we've ever worked with and such a character. You're absolutely right in saying this is all about the dog and owner partnership, and watching how you and Arthur gel as a team leaves us in no doubt that he will excel with his future training! Well done Team Arthur!

Taking on a rescue Springer Spaniel brought its challenges but with the support of Steve and Mad4Mutts not only has Jake grown in confidence so have we. Clear, manageable, goals set by Steve have enabled us to follow a training programme that has brought about positive changes in such a short time. Despite a fear of men, sadly a hangover from his past, Jake bonded quickly Steve. Two lessons completed and there’s one thing we are wondering …..why didn’t we contact Mad4Mutts sooner. Thank you Steve.

Hi Graham, Thank you for your very kind words. As trainers we are only ever as good as the work that owners put in, and both yours and Jayne's commitment to Jake and all your hard work is definitely producing results. I'm very optimistic that Jake is going to make continued positive progress under your guidance. Well done Team Jake!

Contacting Steve was the best decision I made. Mickie and Sunny have their forever home with me and I was struggling to cope with their dog reactivity and reactivity to each other. Having met steve on the first session, I knew this was going to work. Being given the 'tools' to work with Mickie and Sunny had an immediate impact and we are all enjoying the exercises. A long way to go but with Steve's help, I know one day I will be able to walk both dogs together. Steve has such a nice personality, so calm with the dogs that it has an effect on me too, I'm not as tense or anxious either as when I'm on my own I can hear what Steve is saying and can visualise what he's doing with the dogs and put that into practice. Thanks Steve for the journey so far 😊

Hi Julie! Mickie and Sunny are a real joy, and I'm sure they are only going to progress from here on in. You're doing incredibly well with this cheeky pair, and it's great to see your confidence growing. We're looking forward to them walking nicely together outside, and you all enjoying your walks together! Onward and upward Mickie and Sunny!

I literally can not thank Steve enough for all he has done for me and my rescue dog Woody. When I got in touch with Steve, I literally was worried I was going to have to give our dog back to the rescue organization- Woody was reactive to people, dogs, cars, bikes- you name it. My husband kept saying "this dog is not working." I had not slept in three weeks and was crying every day as I was so tired and frustrated. I had already paid hundreds with another 'behaviorist' and was literally at my wits end. Steve changed everything. Three sessions in, Woody is going on hour walks, calmly navigating people, cars, dogs, bikes and children. He is a joy to be around, and I have never been more in love with a dog. I owe Steve my sanity and my marriage, and am so thankful for all of the unending support and care he has given our family and our special dog. I can not recommend highly enough. DO NOT GO ANYWHERE ELSE!

Hello Jen, Thank you for this, you are too kind! Woody is a lovely lad, with some issues from his past, but all credit to you for not giving up on him. All your hard work is paying off, so well done! I'm sure Woody will become your perfect canine companion with all the love care and work you are putting in, and look forward to future glowing reports of the new and improved Woody!

Couldn’t recommend Steve enough. He has massively helped Mylos lead walking, obedience and impulse control. Also my confidence on walking a very excitable Labrador has grown massively through his help. Steve is very knowledgable and rational and no problem is too big for him. He adores the dogs he works with and puts the time into building a relationship with them which I admire. His training has ensured that I am going to get the dog that I want, a calm non reactive dog. Thank you so much for everything you have done for us. We will definitely see you at the obedience classes! 😊 Ps Mylo says thank you for all of the hotdogs🐾😊🦮

Hi Jodie, Thank you so much for this lovely review. It was a real pleasure working with yourself and Mylo, and nice to see Mylo develop so quickly with all the hard work you have put in. it was also great to see your confidence and handling skills grow significantly too, so all credit to you. Mylo has lots of potential and I'm sure he will go from strength to strength under your guidance. A massive well done. It was a real pleasure to work with such a committed and caring owner! See you at Obedience classes!

Steve was brilliant with our boy (Cesar) being a nervous and reactive dog we've always found our boy a hand full. Just after 3 sessions we've Seen a big improvement. Steve has given us so much information to go forward and amazing techniques to keep a good training schedule for the future. Overall, a 5 star service and wouldn't hesitate to recommend in the future. Many thanks, Naomi and Dan

Hi Dan & Naomi, Thank you for this lovely review. Cesar is a lovely boy He may never be the most confident pup in the world which is the root of his reactivity, but your commitment to him is outstanding, and that's why he has made such amazing progress. We can see both his confidence in you and your confidence as handlers growing and look forward to hearing about Cesar's future progress. Well done, superb effort!

Cannot recommend Steve and Mad4Mutts enough, and I do regularly 😊 From the very first email, phone call and booked session, I knew this was the trainer for me. He took the lead and showed me how to train my boy in a way that he would respond and listen to me while giving me confidence that we were heading in the right direction. I was worried but steve really helped guide us through the practical techniques and the theory behind all the techniques we were using and we have seen such progress, and we hope to continue to make it. Max loved it, and also loved Steve and his high reward treats 🥰 which is high praise indeed as he is such a fussy boy when it comes to treats 🤣 All sessions or calls have been followed by emails explaining everything for me, which I refer back to constantly to ensure my whole family are doing the same. Always available for support and advice, and I couldn't imagine going to another trainer again especially now I've rehomed another precious lady ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Reply from Mad4Mutts 2023.10.05
Hi Sarah, thank you so much for your very kind review. It's great to hear Max is doing well, and thrilled to see both Max and Luna looking very happy. We do our best to guide and equip people, but it's really down to the owners consistent graft with their dog, and we know you have worked incredibly hard with your training. We wish you every success with them both for the future, and we're always a phone call away if you need us. Sincere thanks!

Steve has been fantastic with my reactive dog. He's really tuned her in with commands and calmed her lead walking down. We are making good progress and his advice to keep me training her has been so useful. Hoping we keep up the progress being made. I'm so pleased I made my decision to get some help. Highly recommend!!
