Getting our cockapoo Peggy was the best decision we have made in a long time; joining Leaps and Bounds was the second best. Tammy and Kate are incredible: they have an amazing natural affinity with dogs, understanding what makes them tick and how our behaviour affects theirs. Peggy was a very feisty pup (to put it mildly) and caused us quite a lot of stress in her first weeks and months, as much as we adored her from the outset. Now she is the most wonderful little dog, thanks to training classes and puppy play sessions at Leaps and Bounds; she and we have learned so much. In addition, we have had three one-to-one sessions with Tammy and Kate, helping us with excessive play-biting, poo-eating and frustration barking. Within moments Tammy and Kate can see the problem and its likely cause, and have formulated a plan. In each case we have taken the advice and, quite simply, it has worked. Tam and Kate have taught us how to be good ‘parents’ to Peg and it’s changed everything. And not only are they incredibly skilled dog trainers, but they are fun, kind and warm-hearted — just wonderful people all round — and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to any dog owner.
