Dog Training Reviews

We would highly recommend Rob and the team

Our boys went to Rob 2 weeks ago for residential training. We decided to do this as they had become very aggressive towards each other and it had become unmanageable with them at home. Within days he had them training together and getting on with each other. One had pretty much always been very reactive to other dogs since being attacked as a puppy and his reactivity has also significantly improved. He would previously lunge and trip you over trying to get to other dogs and this behaviour has almost gone. They are very strong dogs and at times were difficult to walk but they are now walking to heel and responding well to commands. We will be continuing with 1-1 training and group sessions but so far I couldn’t be happier with the results. With dedication to the ongoing training we can finally see light at the end of the tunnel we are looking forward to seeing how they progress further and back to their usually happy playful selves. We would highly recommend Rob and the team.

he doesn’t react to other dogs or people now

I needed help with my German Shepard he was very reactive, barking and lunging at other dogs and people when we were out walking and would constantly bark and growl if anyone came into my house. I contacted rob who came out and assessed Loki who went to stay with him for a 15 day residency traning. I was worried about sending him but Rob calmed all of my worries and kept me updated with Loki’s progress with photos, videos and phone calls. Since the residency Loki has massively improved he doesn’t react to other dogs or people when we are out walking and generally is more socialised. I can take him to family members houses who have dogs and I don’t worry about how loki will react. I am continuing to work with Rob to improve both mine and Loki’s training to make even more improvements and take him everywhere with me without worry!

My dog knows when I’m distressed

Rob and all the staff I have met have been outstanding! Rob has been extremely understanding of my needs and travels to Scotland every week to train my dog, which is wonderful because with out him making that effort I would not be able to have a PTSD dog or learn the dog training skills I’m currently learning. The team at one to one dog training school are very easy to work with, all of the team care deeply for the dogs they work with and are committed to giving the highest quality of training to their customers. I would 100% recommend one to one dog training school to anybody looking to work with competent, kind, caring dog trainers or looking to buy an amazing dog who will change your life, like my PTSD Dog I purchased from them has. My dog from one to one dog training school has restored my faith in the world and has helped me take my life back into my own hands. I have suffered from anxiety and PTSD for years but with my dog by my side I feel capable and confident for the first time ever.
