“I completed a ‘Puppy Package’ with Lucy when I got my new Cocker Spaniel – and have learnt so much from her and enjoyed it so much that I will be continuing to train with her to learn even more!
Even if you have had dogs for a while (my family has had dogs of various breeds for 12 years) do not underestimate the value of working with a professional trainer!
Lucy has changed what I knew (or what I thought I knew) about dog training – enabling me to have an amazing relationship with my puppy.
I have had many comments on how well behaved he is (not a small feat with a cocker spaniel!) She helps with any query you may have and offers clear and easy to follow guidance.
