Puppy Training

We have adopted a very special breed of dog - a Maremma. Having used Ainsley to help us with our very submissive but adorable and sensitive labradoodle/border collie mix Jessie, we turned naturally to her for help again. Getting to know our lovely Bella and her stubborn nature has been such joy with Ainsley's guidance and oh gosh, I do not know how to say it, she is just so intuitive and easy and she explains everything so simply - we are delighted with all that we have learned and the support we have. And look forward to lots more as is it is all such fun!  Valerie

We recently decided to forgo puppy training classes and have private puppy training instead which was completely tailored to us as a family.  I cannot recommend Ainsley enough.  We all (including the kids) felt very comfortable with everything we did both at home and in the park as well as all dog socialising.  We all feel confident now with our puppy and although will do a few more sessions as she gets older have a great trained puppy in just 3 sessions with Ainsley.   Karen, Nick with Alice, Labrador puppy

 Dear Ainsley


I just want to let you know how pleased I am with the help you have given us with training Stella. Having never had dogs before I felt really nervous though excited about what we were taking on by bringing a puppy into our household.  Getting you involved in Stella's training was one of the best decisions I could have made.  You have helped me every stop of the way and I got a lot of confidence from your expertise and felt you could help me solve any problems that Stella gave us.  Lesley & Stella 


Thanks so much to Ainsley for her help training Digby and general doggy advice.  I'd never had a dog before and it was great to have someone to ask about all sorts of things regarding the care of our new puppy.  Digby is doing well with his training and loving every minute.

When we first got Millie she was the usual playful but disobedient puppy and took no notice whatsoever of our attempts at training. However after just three sessions with Ainsley the change was dramatic, totally obeyed all commands she was given, stopped jumping up at visitors, waited at the kerb and walked to heel.

I have no hesitation in recommending Ainsley for all your dog training needs, absolutely excellent!

Ainsley - what can I say other than amazing.  It's because of your work with my whippet that I have felt confident enough to foster dogs.  Ainsley started to be my dog trainer when Bella was around 4 months old. My husband was out of area and I had never had a dog before but Ainsley helped me to give my dog manners and the puppy socialization that she needed but that I was unable to do due to not driving. My girl is now 19 months old and I have rung Ainsley many a time saying Bella is doing this what do I do??  She is always at the other end of the line when you need her. My current situation is a foster dog that is physically 10 months old but has had no socialization but thanks to the amazing work Ainsley has done my dog and the foster dog were able to play in the garden together and not be stressed or hurt.  Thanks to her I now know how to use a clicker for both my dog and my foster which really helps, as well as giving me tips on how to manage them both around the house. I am currently typing this with a 10 month old lurcher on my lap.  Thank you Ainsley xx
