We had the best experience working with Sophie to help us train our dog Goldie. She talked us through all of the elements that we needed help with, and also explained things in a way that made us understand the behaviours that we needed to change to better the outcome of Goldie's training as well. She helped us to see where we were going wrong and simple changes we could make to alter her behaviour. The change in her was seen straight away, especially when it came to walking on the lead. Sophie is a lovely and delightful person that we absolutely trust and will always go back to see when we need help. Thank you Sophie! - Megan & Paul



Oh my gosh! Having a puppy can be a tough road to go down. Believe me, I've had some really rough rides. But it turns out I never needed to. Who knew? If I had met Sophie 40 years ago, I would have had a much smoother road. She walked in and Sydney was immediately calm. As if he didn't need to be the boss anymore. No worries. He literally went into another room and played with a toy for about an hour! Sophie taught us the basic rules of dog behavior and how to put them into action. It was easy and after she left we had a new dog. This is not hyperbole and I'm not being paid to say this. Her fee was worth every penny! Thank you Sophie! - Ron & Mark



We needed a trainer that understood our struggles and put our family at the heart of the solution. Sophie’s professional approach ticks all the boxes and she has a solution for every problem . Sophie is great at identifying areas for improvements and tweaking our technique to help us achieve a better outcome! She is not only a fantastic dog trainer, she’s a brilliant human coach too!! Our puppy is now thriving and we are learning together so quickly. We can’t thank her enough. - Manuela

We were having quite a few issues with our adolescent dog and our 7 month old pup. Consulted Sophie about our issues and her help and guidance has been invaluable! I thought I'd read and learned everything I needed to know but was pleasantly surprised to learn things I'd totally overlooked. I now have calm pups that listen and are contented. I would recommend Sophie to anyone who needs training advice that really works. - Keziah Toomey



Sophie gave us excellent guidance in helping us better understand Otis’ behaviour and the simple yet effective changes we could make for him to become calmer at home and during his walks. Thank you Sophie :) - Brian
