Testimonials 

Recently attended the puppy training classes, which were excellent. Lots of new skills learned and lots to work on as adolescence approaches.

Hannah & Lucca

After an appointment with another dog trainer who’s approach was to include physical reprimands along with positive training, really concerned me and on that first session. Needless to say, I researched and contacted Kathryn. She not only worked so well with Alf, but she really understood his and my needs and objectives for the training. In an hour and a half, she had taught some of the basics and gave me so much invaluable advice. If you are looking for an understanding, experienced trainer who really does care then give Kathryn a call.

Cathy & Alf

This place is a must for all new dog owners. We have been on the puppy and junior classes and our dog is so much the better for it. You are offered a safe, fun environment with a very knowledgeable tutor. I only wish there was another course as we enjoyed it that much and our dog did too. Keep up the good work.

Mike, Yvette & Nellie

Kath is fantastic . 5*. Me and Dave loved our Thursday night training , week 1 he hid under a chair for the hour , by week 3 he ran in . Roll on the next course.

Donna & Dave

We have completed 2 courses with Kathryn with our cocker spaniel puppy and wouldn’t of got to the stage we have with him if it wasn’t for her. Kathryn has years of experience and is very helpful and informative. Would highly recommend (already have to few of my friends) and she will be the first person we call if any issues in the future x

Emma, Dave & Ralph

Took our little puppy Peanut and she has just graduated with a rosette. Cath is a very accomplished trainer who is extremely helpful and very personable. If in doubt go along, I guarantee you will not be disappointed. Thank you Cath xx 5+ stars from me

Maureen & Peanut

Just completed the puppy training class. Our cocker spaniel was frightened and intimidated by other dogs at the start of the course. We thought it would be too stressful for him. We need not have worried, Kathryn was fantastic, her knowledge, patience and advice were vital in helping us to get a confident boy. By the end of the course he was a different dog. We would have no hesitation in recommending her and look forward to the junior class.

Shirley & Buzz

I have known Kathryn for many years, she is a great supporter of our rescue and has helped us in many ways over the years,her training only uses kind methods and has helped many owners and dogs. Kathryn is also a people person which is so important as a Trainer. I have no hesitation in recommending Kathryn as a Trainer.

Carolyne Poulton- Co-ordinator Labrador Rescue Scotland.

I have known Kathryn for many years and she is an asset to our Rescue. Her gentle expertise and knowledge of dog behaviour has helped many a traumatised Golden to trust again. She will also help and advise new owners who may have a few teething problems in the first few weeks with a new dog. This is invaluable to us, the new owners and the Goldens. I would recommend her to anyone who has a problem whether it be small or large and I am sure she will work through it with you.

Jan Robinson- Co-ordinator NW Golden Retriever Rescue.

Fabulous trainer very professional and experienced, never rushes and makes everyone comfortable whilst doing exercises. My dog is so much better for attending the course. Would highly recommend. Kelly

Kelly

Really enjoyed both the puppy & Junior courses we recently attended with our dog. The courses are very informative and the training is very sensible. Highly recommend Kathryn experience really shows.

Lynne.

Cant recommend Kathryn at Four Paws highly enough, we had some training issues with our Labrador Harvey, jumping up, pulling us on the lead, and Kathryn has been guiding us through our training, and I dont think we would of managed without her. We have booked onto the next Beginner course, and cant wait.Thanks. Kathryn
