She has competed in Kennel Club Competitive Obedience competitions over the last 13 years achieving numerous first place positions with three of her dogs.

After having a one to one session with Steve I felt like I had been given the key to unlocking my dog. 
Steve worked with me on addressing some challenging behaviours in particular lead walking. I have gone from dreading walks to once again enjoying them. I now feel in control and confidant, my dog listens to me and our relationship has improved. We also attend Steve’s other classes and thoroughly enjoy them including my puppy who has also made great progress.  Tanya from Chatham.

One word- amazing… We came with our then puppy Brooke who is now 3 years old and attended puppy socialising, bronze silver and gold kennel club classes that they taught…. Steve and Sally tution is the best and they definitely know their stuff !! Great approachable people… Brooke is the best dog ever and everyone comments on how well.
She behaves/ responds to us as owners and I think a lot of that is down to the teaching she had as a puppy… Thanks Steve and Sally for your hard work and will.
Definitely return to you if and when we have another puppy…
