We took our husky to Sarah’s dogskool whilst he was a pup, it was great for him as we could socialise him with other dogs whilst teaching him commands and bonding with him. Following on from the puppy classes we decided to then contact Sarah to ask about 1-2-1 dog training which she was more than happy to help. This included an initial consultation, then 3 follow up sessions. This really helped as we gained knowledge on proper lead walk as huskies are known to pull. Work on recall, group dog walks for socialising and general behaviour habits. Thanks for helping us out

We started our journey at Dogskool with puppy classes and now retouching base with some skills as my dog has reached adulthood. The team at Dogskool have been amazing with listening to me about my dog and making sure our needs were met when attending a course. I was anxious about attending due to some traits my dog had picked up but everyone was fantastic and i can't wait to join more courses in the future. If you have any doubts if a course is right for you and your dog, Sarah and the team are always on hand to help and talk things through with you.

Sarah has been brilliant. From the first meeting I felt she understood exactly what the issues were. She made us feel completely comfortable and never made any negative comments or criticised what we had been doing. (This was in sharp contrast to another behaviourist we had contacted, who had an opinion on everything but refused to meet the dog!) We now feel much more confident in dealing with the issues and we know Sarah is there if we need her. Her charges are very reasonable and well worth it. Her advice has been invaluable.

Would highly recommend Dogskool. Bobby our Cockapoo puppy has learnt so much during his sessions . Michelle and Courtney are very knowledgeable, and also gave advice via email . I was very nervous of the puppy biting when we joined and Michelle was very supportive ,helping me to grow in confidence with Bobby . These sessions have been a game changer .

The activity classes are great for ongoing training. Well organised, inclusive and good fun for owners as well! I have been to other training / activity classes and whilst all have benefits, I do think the ones run by Dogskool are my favourite.

Sarah provided great knowledge and advice on our 1 to 1 training. It was great to have someone to view our training journey in real life experiences. Our relationship with our dog has improved since taking on the advice from Sarah. Hoping to do more classes with her in the future

Been working with Sarah at Dogskool to combat Mabel’s lead etiquette. We were struggling due to her reactivity to other dogs and she has zero concentration. After an in-depth zoom call which we established through Sarah’s questioning that Mabel had gut related issues which we managed to resolve quite quickly by a change of diet and feeding regime. This improved her mood so much. Then came the 1:1 session, Sarah gave us a strategy to work to with lots of advice on the right lead etc. Two weeks on we’re getting there. Mabel is calmer, listening to us and we’re walking so much better. It’s work in progress but we’ve still got two more 1:1 sessions to go. I highly recommend Sarah & Dogskool.

Hi Kerri! We're thrilled to hear about your positive experience working with Sarah at Dogskool. It's great to see that Mabel's reactivity and concentration have improved so much. Keep up the progress, and we're here for the remaining 1:1 sessions. Thanks for the recommendation!

Police beware No Training Just a walk around a field. Not interested in my dog Just got told to keep my dog away from people/dogs. Just give treats. Had to fight to get some money back, after saying I don’t think she was helping my dog. Be very careful if you get you her in to train you do for behaviour issues, she reports you to the police.

Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry that you were not happy with the service that you received. Despite my best efforts, I feel that you were unable to understand the concepts of counter conditioning training techniques and how they should be used to modify your dog’s aggressive behaviour. Thanks to your occupation as a Sports Massage Therapist, you had recognised that there were physical issues with your dog but you did not seem to accept the highly likely link between underlying pain and Maisie’s aggressive behaviour. As I explained in detail, you were unlikely to make much progress without investigating and subsequently dealing with her obvious health problems. My strong advice to you was that you manage your dog’s environment. I urged you to reconsider your habit of allowing a dog with a proven bite history to be in the room with your clients when they visit your home. You commented that you allowed your dog to lie on the bed with them. I consider this highly unsafe. I also consider it unsafe to allow your dog off lead in public areas when you know that there is a considerable chance that she may injure an adult or a child. You are mistaken in your belief that I have reported you to the Police. I merely pointed out to you that, should Maisie bite someone, as she has several times in the past, you are likely to be subject to action by the Police under Section 3 of the Dangerous Dogs Act. “Having a dog dangerously out of control” is a criminal offence. Sadly, I feel that, under your care and in the situations that you place her in, Maisie’s behaviour will escalate and that she will not improve despite the input of various canine professionals.

Our Jeff has recently graduated from puppy classes with DOGSKOOL. When we started he was very shy and nervous around other dogs, his confidence has grown week-by-week and has learned a few life long tips and tricks. Staff were very knowledgeable, supportive and friendly. I would 100% recommend DOGSKOOL. We will be back soon for flyball. Thank you.

Thanks Kay. Delighted that you and Jeff enjoyed our course. He’ll love Flyball!!

Dogskool puppy classes After having such a great experience with Dogskool’s 1:1 puppy package we wanted to carry on the learning with the puppy classes so we could get used to handling our dog being around other dogs. Really worthwhile to do this to get the foundations right from the start. We were first time dog owners but we’d recommend this class if you’ve always owned dogs too - research into dog behaviour and training methods have changed so much, plus every puppy is different.

Absolutely 💯 I would recommend Sarah to anyone. The positive and kind way she trains dogs is highly reassuring and she give the owners confidence to deal with any issues they might be worried about. The best instructor I have ever known.

Excellent overall training I have used Dogskool for puppy training and one to one reactivity training. I found both courses extremely helpful. The trainers are very knowledgeable and listen and address any concerns you may have. I would definitely use Dogskool for any training needs
