"I would have no hesitation in recommending Alison. Her knowledge, people skills and communication with all aspects has been brilliant."

Fiona Louise Wall BMVS BSC MRCVS

"As you know I was rather sceptical of your training methods when we first sought your help. I now understand that if we had pursued a different course of a more confrontational type of training, there would have been a serious risk of her behaviour getting worse, not better!  Tilly has now turned away from being a nervous rescue dog, to becoming a delightful family pet. Mr and Mrs Bradshaw". 

“We have had excellent feedback from our clients regarding Alison’s advice and care for their pets.  Her advice is practical, transparent and tailored to the individual animals welfare and client’s needs”. Catherine Meakin, BVSc MRCVS, Silverton Vets.
