“Completely unreliable and unprofessional service overall for various reasons. Appalling treatment and email communication via assistant John who is clearly on some power trip. First of all, after payment for all 6 classes upfront we had to chase many times for confirmation of payment and class details (something we have noticed that has come up quite frequently in reviews). The first session was cancelled one hour before class (fair enough, a shame, but these things happen). On our third session, the class was yet again cancelled, this time slightly less than one hour before it was due to start. Due to this inconvenience (with travel costs and distance and working around full time work commitments and arrangements) we enquired about a partial refund for the remaining classes to which we received aggressive, ignorant and quite frankly embarrassing communication from John, the assistant. We are shocked at the unprofessionalism that John has shown by with holding our money by denying a refund and also denying us entry to the remaining classes we have paid upfront for. A company like this should be willing to listen to their paying customers if they are unsatisfied and unhappy with a service and together be willing to find a solution. Would not recommend this training course to anyone. Assistant John is a violating and controlling human being.”

“Bob has been training with Rebecca in her puppy social, beginner class, intermediate class and agility class! It is always an amazing amount of fun and he really enjoys it. Every time we walk through the venue of the classes, he will try to get in. We have been waiting for his adolescent to kick in but still there's no sign of it at the age of 10 month. I think we can accredit this to all the training he received so far. We fixed lots of problem along the way and I can't believe how sweet Bob is these days. Dog training is hard, but Rebecca does make it much easier if you follow her instructions and advices.”

“Our puppy Teddy has been coming to Canine School for Skills since he was ten weeks old. When we first brought him home he was incredibly timid and more interested in other owners rather than other dogs. After attending puppy and improvers classes, Teddy has grown in confidence massively. Now at 7 months he loves other dogs and doesn't freak out or freeze when he meets new dogs. He is also much better at dealing with new and unfamiliar situations. In puppy classes we covered basics like sit, down, come, look, off and touch, but Rebecca also provided information on other aspects of dog ownership e.g preventing food aggression, advice on how to make pups more comfortable being examined so that they are not too stressed at the vets. The classes themselves are fun and particularly since starting improvers, the classes have involved lots of games to improve skills such as recall and stays whilst there are distractions. Every week we cover a few different activities and Rebecca gives suggestions on how continue practising at home. The class sizes are small enough that Rebecca can get to know the individual pups and provide more personalised advice throughout the lessons. Rebecca is always happy to give advice and tips relating to Teddy's behaviour at home. Her input has been invaluable to us as first time dog owners, helping us conquer some of Teddy's odd phobias and picky eating. The classes alone are great, but the access to Rebecca's wealth of knowledge and the fact she is always willing to help, means that Canine School for Skills is more than just obedience training for us. It is probably Teddy's favourite part of the week. We would highly recommend it for anyone who wants a fun approach to dog training. ”
