 4 months ago we brought our adopted rescue Sprocker (Pippa) home - we were warned she was completely prey orientated, her recall was appalling and advised to use a long line at all times (her poor recall was even noted on her vet notes!). Naively we took her to the beach and let her off for a run and she promptly disappeared into the horizon only to return when she was ready! Fast forward to this weekend and thanks to Steph we were able to take her back to that same beach and have her off the lead for the whole walk with her returning immediately when called! We have see such a huge improvement in her and can not recommend Steph enough! Thanks to her Pippa can now enjoy a run off the lead which is vital to burn off some of her endless spaniel energy!! Freya, Barrow

Steph offers a great service, 100% trustworthy, really takes the time to understand your needs and the needs of your dog. Always offering extra training advice and spends time to ensure you understand how to carry this on in her absence. Highly recommended. Angela, Clitheroe 

Steph's puppy training really helped me stay on track and address some unwanted behaviours before they became a problem - very friendly and professional service. I highly recommend. Paul, Great Harwood

Thank you so much Steph. Since you have started training our 1 year old beagle he has been much better behaved. Other people have noticed a big difference in his behaviour too. He's a work in progress but with time and commitment, we know we'll soon have the obedient dog we wanted. We'd highly recommend you to anyone. Chantelle, Clitheroe

Steph is a very calm, reassuring and knowledgeable lady with helpful, practical advice even though I have been a dog owner for many years. As time passes and when you lose an older pet, you can easily forget how to train a new dog. Steph is very reassuring and gave me my confidence back. We always look forward to our next training session! Susan, Clayton-le-Moors
