TESTIMONIALS

What Our Students Say

We took our Cockapoo Dougie to Life Skills Puppy training which was fantastic. As new dog owners, the training Victoria gave us was brilliant too. We had a second puppy and unfortunately moved out of the area so used a different trainer. In comparison, Victoria’s knowledge and training methods are far more superior.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Victoria and her team.

Dougie – Cockapoo

A friend recommended People & Dogs, and I reluctantly contacted them – it was very much a last resort. That was 6 months ago, and now Poppy walks beautifully on a loose lead, never, ever pulling. Her recall is now 100% consistent. Don’t get me wrong, it didn’t happen overnight, and it required effort and commitment from me, but it has been totally worth it, and worth every penny.
