THANK YOU 🙏🏽 ♥️♥️♥️ We had a brilliant session with Aaron Rogers today and we also got to meet the amazing Mr Adam as well. Aaron helped us with our two pugs , one that’s from a breeding program to eliminate the issue they have. We learned so much , Aaron understands dogs and the importance of safety in training them correctly. I can’t thank them enough 🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🐾 Love from Lockie and Lielou 🐶🐶 ( seen here with the cats 🤣)

The depth of knowledge and expertise showcased in this book is truly impressive. Every page is filled with actionable tips and techniques that are easy to understand and implement. What sets this book apart is its genuine passion for dogs and dedication to their well-being. The authors, undoubtedly experts in their field, have a profound understanding of canine behavior and psychology, which shines through in their writing. They approach training with patience, empathy, and a deep respect for the bond between human and dog. From basic obedience commands to more complex behaviors, 'How to Train Your Dog' covers it all. Whether you're a first-time dog owner or a seasoned pro looking to refine your training techniques, this book is an invaluable resource. It's clear that the authors have a genuine desire to help both dogs and their owners live their best lives together. I can't recommend 'How to Train Your Dog' highly enough.

I have been following SDT for quite sometime on YouTube and have tried most things that other trainers say do but didn’t work on my three-year-old German Shepherd who I rescued 18 months ago we think he was probably Covid dog as he’s terrible on the lead and goes mad at the site of other dogs although it seems to be excitement and not aggression anyway I bit the bullet took the two hour drive up to Southend Dog Training and had a two hour session with Aaron He spent time with Gunner trying different collars until he found the collar that worked and eventually could sit outside the compound with Gunner just watching the other dogs in their training session without barking and going mad, I had a go on the lead with him as well and the difference was amazing I highly recommend Southend Dog Training and Aaron was brilliant. Thanks mate. Hopefully I won’t need to see you again but if I do, I’ll have no hesitation of the 250 mile round-trip.

A 2 hour 1-2-1 session withAaron at SDT HAS CHANGED MY DOGGY LIFE Honestly! We booked a session with aaron because we hit a plateau with our dog training. Our story… We got a rescue dog aged 6 months almost a year ago and on walks he lunged at everything, he is extremely strong and only my husband could walk him. We spent a small fortune on dog behavior/training and he came along massively. 6months on and In a QUIET environment he is capable of loose lead walking, sit, disengage etc. BUT I thought, we can’t carry on with only my husband being strong enough to walk him and in areas where he has a lot of distance from other dogs. This was controlling our lives. In 2 hrs at SDT Aaron found the techniques and tools to manage Busters lunging. We were amazed! We had the best 2 hours EVER!! I am confident that with these new training tools and knowledge within a few months i will be able to walk Buster on my own!

Sophie was amazing with our reactive jack Russell. We worked through different techniques to find the correct one for us/him. By the end of the session our dog was not reacting to any dogs or people. We tried the techniques later on in the day and since and they've been working wonders. We couldn't be more grateful.

Dear Sian, it's wonderful to hear your positive feedback about Sophie's assistance with your Jack Russell. We're glad the tailored techniques are working wonders for you and your pet. We appreciate your gratitude - it means a lot to us. Team SDT.

After closely following all the great content on Instagram, we finally booked a 1-1 session with Aaron to discuss recall, lead training and general obedience with our 4 month old Whippet, Figgy. Every question we asked received a friendly and in-depth answer that put our minds to rest. We left feeling really clear and a lot less stressed, knowing what we needed to implement, change and stop practicing altogether to raise a happy, respectful and obedient dog! Feeling confident & removing the guess-work was priceless. The facility was big and well maintained, the staff were friendly and it felt great to let our curious little sight-hound off-lead in their enclosed area. Would highly recommend.

Dear Alex, we're thrilled to hear about your positive experience with our 1-1 session. We're glad Aaron could assist in training Figgy! It makes us happy to know our facilities met your expectations. Thanks for your recommendation! Team SDT

Had a great session at SDT on Thursday. We were met on arrival and made to feel very welcome and relaxed. Aaron was our trainer for the session and as soon as we got Danny out of the car he could clearly identify what our training needs were as another dog was nearby!! Aaron immediately helped put us at ease and the session was enjoyable, informative and we were delighted that by the end of the session, we were walking comfortably around other dogs. I had complete trust in Aaron's knowledge and expertise. I had been following the videos prior to the visit, but this session cemented the learnings from the videos and actually having Aaron there to guide and advise made a world of difference and I'm really pleased we made the trip down to have a face to face. Thank you!!

Cannot recommend enough for any issues. We had an issue with lead reactivity and had a 1.1 with Phoebe. She was thorough and we really felt like she took time to get to know us and our boy Rio. She was then able to help us make adjustments and educate us. The rest of the trainers were also out and it was great to see lots of team work between staff coming over to work with the clients needs. For example another trainer come over for us to practice Rio's reactivity to people walking towards him. We also got to meet Adam who went over and greeted everyone. I cannot thank them enough. Free videos with tips on insta, website, training sessions, food and more. Just from the tips on insta we were able to implement changes. We loved working with Phoebe. She was so caring and catered to exactly what we needed. Thank you SDT team & Phoebe for our 1.1 yesterday from us and off course Rio. A journey and money worth spent.

We recently had Sophie for a training session at the centre where she advised us on our dogs reactiveness to both people and other dogs as well as pulling on the lead. She was very informative and helpful that we booked in for a home session too. She again was very helpful and answered all our questions, reassuring us on how to progress with the training. Sophie was professional but had a great sense of friendliness that put us at ease. If we need any further help we would definitely go back.

We've recently had a 1-2-1 with Adam & wow 👌 what a difference this lesson has made to our walks with Nobby, our 4.5yr old staffy. Nobby used to take us for a walk, he wanted to get everywhere at 100mph, hence my husbands shoulder now being under the hospital - he's a very strong & wilful boy - the dog not the husband 😆 Adam taught us how to use a good halti & harness together & what a difference its made - walks are now pleasant and painless. We were very impressed by the whole experience, the pleasant & welcoming staff and the knowledge we brought away with us - we would definitely recommend Southend Dog Training 👍 Many thanks Nichola & Shaun (oh and Nobby too 😉)

I've been throwing money at a trainer that couldn't help my dog with his reactiveness with dogs. So I make the appointment to visit the centre and have a session with Aaron. I didn't think it was possible to see a difference in Barney within two hours, but Southend proved me wrong, with the right tools and technics Barney was walking past all the dogs within two foot of each other with reacting. I've been home a few days and I can walk him past cats, dogs and people without a lunge, a bark or a 360, it is beyond brilliant. I'm behind Southend 100%, worth the five hour drive and money well spent, should of done this at the beginning. Please if your dog is anyway reactive don't hesitate to book with them. They explain everything, they try different things, to get a right fit for you and your dog. It was also great to see Adam, Aaron and the team, they are are like meeting royalty, I had to courtesy lol. Thank you to all humans and dogs at Southend, I continue training and progressing forward with Barney.

We have a very reactive dog, we brought her to Phoebe at Southend dog training. She helped us to help our dog, after a two hour 121 session, our dog was walking better on her lead and we had been shown better teaching tools to work with over the next 6/8 weeks with after care support and homework. Phoebe was very knowledgeable, professional and clearly loves dogs, I would recommend her to anyone looking for support with dog training.

We had a 1-1 session on Friday with Kim and all I can say is wow. Within 15mins Kim had my delinquent working cocker spaniel Sonny walking like a pro. This for me was proof you can teach an old dog new tricks 🥰 (Sonny is 7). My slightly better behaved black lab Archie was as I knew a easier task. We worked on lead walking separately and together and what had started becoming an unenjoyable experience of walking my boys has become a joy. Call back was also worked on and what a difference with my boys. I had a great experience with Kim and highly recommend anyone that like me was at my witsend and want to put the work in for happier dogs and humans. Thanks Kim ❤️

Had a fabulous one to one with Adam with my 2 year old Dogue de Bordeaux Murphy. I don’t have enough words to thank him for the help and advice he gave us. I’ve already started putting in place the actions and had an amazing walk with Murph today with his behaviour and recall improving already. Adam was patient and explained things so easily it made me think why I hadn’t thought of it before but this is why he’s the expert. I can’t recommend Southend Dog Training enough!
