Kate from Leaps and Bounds has helped improve our miniature dachshund’s behaviour towards other dogs.
Before starting behavioural lessons our dog would bark at other dogs from across the park but now, with Kate’s friendly, expert guidance, our dog can be very close to other dogs and interact in a healthier and happier way. Thanks Leaps and Bounds! Would definitely recommend.
We have really benefited so much from the classes at Leaps & Bounds.
The puppy play sessions were a great, fun way to socialise with other puppies, and really brought on our dogs’ confidence around other dogs.
The dog training classes are informative and fun, and they have really helped us as first-time dog owners, learn techniques that we use every day, both at home and out on dog walks.
We have had some one-to-one sessions too, to tackle particular behaviour we wanted to work on with our dog, which has given us specific tasks to practise, and has been a great support.
We would really recommend the classes; all the trainers are so friendly and happy to help, and it’s a great way to meet other dog owners and their dogs.
I contacted Tammy in October 2018 when I was desperate for help with controlling my beautiful and affectionate, but dog reactive little Staffy. She patiently listened to my sorry tale of woes and immediately came up with a master plan to set both me and my best boy on the correct path. She made a monumental difference to us both and I am now confident in my ability to guide Lester to be the best dog he can be. It wasn’t an overnight fix, but I have the knowledge now to cope with pretty much any situation. Thank you Tam
Tammy gives your pups the foundation to behave and chill in the doggie world. 5 years on and Dora is the dream. Thank you Leaps and bounds. X
Cannot recommend Leaps and Hounds enough, Winston began his puppy classes here and really enjoyed himself.
Tammy, Kate and all the staff are amazing and so patient with all the puppies and of course their
We shall be returning as soon as lockdown is lifted.
Tammy I think you may find Winston has grown just a little lol.
Thank you all for making puppy classes so much fun x
Both of my dogs went to Leaps & Bounds training and they have become the most lovely, well trained, happy dogs I could ever imagine.
Tammy was fantastic with both of them, they were both very small puppies, but Tammy made sure they felt comfortable and safe during training and the Puppy Play, so that they were able to thrive and develop confidence in their training and with other dogs.
The training was really fun and I think I enjoyed it as much as my dogs did! Thanks Tammy

I started working with Kate a few weeks ago – and what can I say. Kate has already made an enormous difference to us. She is teaching us in such a positive and upbeat way, and each session is targeted to our needs. My puppy is full of energy and eager to learn new things.
As a lot of the exercises are game-based, Mia is having a blast without noticing that she is actually going to school. Since working with Kate my girl has become much calmer and much more focused on me, pulling on the lead is becoming less frequent with every walk (unless there is a squirrel around), and we are enjoying our time together while learning new things together every day.

I cannot express what a difference contacting Tammy Burrage from Leaps and Bounds has made to our life with an extremely energetic Spaniel puppy and an owner who had no clue how to deal with him.
She has a calm, confident and above all kind demeanour which helps to put even the most nervous owner at ease. She also makes every lesson fun, which is key to keeping both dog and owner engaged. Through regular training and lots of patience from Tammy and her team, we now have a more obedient dog, as well as a much more well informed owner.
I have also enjoyed the agility course, which Bertie loved and also proved to be the best workout I've had in years! I'm so glad Tammy encouraged us to give it a go, and for when you cannot attend in person, her videos and tutorials are clear, concise and really easy to follow.
I couldn't recommend Leaps and Bounds more!

Cooper joined us at 9 weeks old at the beginning of March 2020 and little did we know that we would be plunged into a National Lockdown a few weeks later. This meant no fun, socialising or puppy play for our little boy; we think Cooper thought he had come to parents with no friends!!
During those early days Tammy and the team at Leaps and Bounds School for Hounds were there to answer any questions and give advice which was very comforting. As soon as was possible puppy classes and puppy play started up again, which has been invaluable for both us and Cooper. Classes are so well organised, the Team are so enthusiastic, warm and welcoming which the puppies respond to so well. During the further lockdown periods the Team have provided online training classes to ensure the puppies’ training continues.
We highly recommend Leaps and Bounds School for Hounds. You and your puppy will have fun whilst learning. Thank you so much Tammy, Kate and Jess for all your help and patience, you are the best.

Kate and Tammy from Leaps & Bounds have helped me enormously with 121s and group sessions, educating both me and my somewhat excitable dog. A professional, knowledgeable, friendly and approachable team. They have patiently supported me in bringing order to Dexter. I can highly recommend them, and indeed have,

We were having a real problem with our 2yr old Lab Willow barking loudly and getting over-excited whenever anyone came to the house. I reached out to Kate for some 1 on 1 training to see if she could help. I was immediately impressed with Kate’s calm, patient approach to training, and that Willow responded in such a positive way from the very first session.
We’ve had a few 1 on 1 training sessions, both at home and outdoors, and Willow’s meet and greet behaviour is now so much improved I am really happy - I cannot recommend Kate highly enough!
