Brilliant! Our greyhound Rocky had been freezing outside our house for maximum 2 hours at a time and this had been going on everyday for at least two months! We tried absolutely everything to get him to move but nothing would work! We were recommended Angela through the Greyhound Trust and she managed to fix this within an hours visit and now it takes no longer than a minute to get him in the house! She has also given us great advice on his toilet training. I would advise anyone who needs behaviour advice to contact Angela, she’s amazing! - Paul
One of the best £50s I’ve ever spent!
I booked a one to one session with Angela to assist with my lovely labradoodle puppy, Hamish. The experience was fantastic from the moment I contacted her. Angela was approachable, flexible and efficient with booking a session.
From the moment Angela arrived at our house it was clear that she had a wonderful touch with dogs and was very knowledgeable. In 1.5 hours we covered all my concerns from mouthing/biting, recall, jumping up, recreational barking and crate training.
Angela’s techniques are based upon positive reinforcement which was important to me. I found that there was no need to repeat commands or tell Hamish to “stop”, which had previously been so demoralising for me and probably not great for Hamish either.
I was able to put the techniques Angela taught me into practice straightaway and I was astounded by how effective they were, so quickly. Within 24 hours my relationship with Hamish was transformed and we have continued to build upon that ever since thanks to Angela.
I only wish I had contacted Angela sooner and recommend everyone books a one to one session with her in the early stages of having a puppy to start on the right footing.
I had attended other puppy training classes (small group sessions) with Hamish before contacting Angela and I must say that not all trainers are the same and advice we were given elsewhere from trainers caused more problems than it solved.
Angela also gave me a really useful puppy training guide which I read from cover to cover and still refer to - her services are great value for money.
I cannot recommend this lady highly enough.- Sarah
We can not recommend Angela enough! We were at the end of our tether with our out of control Frenchie, barking and showing aggression towards dogs and people! Angela completely transformed him and gave us the help and support we needed! She is calm, reassuring and incredibly knowledgeable, nothing was too much trouble. Thank you so much for all your help :) - Jon
I first heard of Angela when a friend bought a Border Collie puppy and remembered how he enthused what an amazing dog trainer she was and how she stopped him getting into bad habits from the outset. So, when I was mad enough to buy two male (brother) Working Cocker Spaniel puppies, I booked Angela for 3 puppy training sessions at my home to start 3 days after we bought them home and she immediately had an impact on us and them. She is so calm, encouraging and makes the training (the humans get trained!!) so simple and completely common sense. I genuinely can’t recommend her enough and know we’ll be asking her to return again when our puppies are nearly a year to work on new skills. - Lisa
We have recently adopted a rescue dog and needed some guidance. Angela gave us insight about the breed. We were trying to train a hound in the same way we did with our Labrador! It was not working! Angela observed the dogs at the house and told us what we were doing wrong and how to correct it. She did the same when we take our walk outside in the park. In the two days which followed the consultation, I could already see a big difference and I am quickly building a bond with my dog. Angela sent us a detailed report after the consultation and it is now our "bible" to refer to. We would highly recommend Angela: she is patient, knowledgeable and she clearly loves her job! Dank Angela! - Francesca
Angela has such a lovely calm approach to my 7 month old Labrador. He was turning into bit of a lad, running up to other dogs and lunging on the lead. So I booked 3 sessions at home. The training Angela gave both myself and Maverick made perfect sense and was easy to bring into our daily routine. He is doing amazingly well and we are both still enjoying learning. It has made such a strong bond between us. I would most definitely use her services again and would highly recommend her. Many Thanks Angela! - Helen
Angela is brilliant - very knowledgeable and supportive and she really helped us when we needed it most. Especially with so many different opinions/advice being given with regard to our new puppy, Angela gave us sensible, logical and easy to use ideas that worked instantly in engaging our puppy in a more positive way. I can't thank her enough and would highly recommend her services to anyone needing advice/support with their dogs. - Sacha
Angela came to visit my self and my German Shepard today I feel like she has really helped for our first session already, She has a magic touch to dogs! Angela is a very lovely lady who puts her heart in to dog training. I would 100% definitely recommend :) - Baily
I recently contacted Angela regarding my 18 week old whippet/lurcher. We where having some guarding issues and general nipping/jumping problems. I was desperate for some reassurance and guidance and Angela absolutely put me at ease, all my concerns and worries she helped with lots of information and techniques regarding training. Having someone come to your home to see your puppy and how he acts in his home environment is a god send, everything felt very relaxed.
Within 24 hours and me feeling a lot more confident you can really see a difference in Lenny already, this evening he has seemed more relaxed in a room for 10 weeks he’s had literally just bounced off the walls in.
I was also emailed a really detailed report that is really useful to refer back to, I’ve already recommended to my doggy friends.
I’ve no doubt that we will see improvements daily with Lenny, I also feel a lot more braver since puppy behaviour was explained to me.
I can’t thank you enough! Lenny also thanks you! Lots more treats for the positive behaviour which I was totally missing as I was overwhelmed in the unwanted behaviour. Thank you! - Liz
After comparing a few dog training classes online, we discovered Greatest K9 - Angela's Puppy classes through "Bark" .
My daughter and I took our non stop growing Lab cross - Eddie - to puppy classes, then after a little more growing had been done we attended the adult classes.
Eddie has thrived in all of these classes. Angela maintained a calm, fun, and controlled atmosphere and environment for the dogs (and owners) to learn key communication skills. I'd recommend that anyone who has a new puppy or dog to attend Angela's classes as it has really helped deepen our communication and bond with Eddie. Should we have any issues with Eddie as he matures I won't hesitate to contact Angela.
I just wish there were more classes...We miss them! - Alix
We came across Greatest K9 after signing up to Angela's 6-week puppy class. Our Rescue Dog Mabel learnt all aspects of training. From walking nicely on a lead, Sit, down, wait... The list goes on. Further to completing the course, we had a nice long break before signing up to the 6-week Adult class. Mabel is a much calmer, more focused dog now. Who you can see, has really enjoyed all the training. - Me included! Me and My partner would defiantly recommend using Angela's services. Her understanding and knowledge have proved vital for us. - Lee
We didn't know what to expect as we've never had a dog behaviourist round before. Angela was lovely and so easy to talk to. We got so much out of our 1.5hours with her and learnt so much. The tools she has given us has made life abit easier with our dachshund Boo and already seeing results in a few weeks. We would highly recommend Angela and would like to thank you again for seeing Boo. - Lauren
Angela came to see us at a pivotal point with our Alpha male puppy and was amazing! She equipped us with all the tools we needed to get him on track and we couldn’t be more grateful. We cannot rate her services highly enough. - Jane
I'm so glad I found Angela to help me with my new puppy, she brought a calm, knowledgeable and understanding space into the house and, not having owned dogs before, she gave me so much information and good advice that worked straight away with our little pup, making the whole experience much easier to manage. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Angela to anyone looking for guidance and support with their dogs. - Sacha
Angela is a great trainer and is so patient with both humans and puppies! Her tips have been invaluable with training our very calm but very stubborn 5 month old Curly! It was so nice to find classes where Winston could train with other puppies and didn’t have to go to adolescent classes due to his age. We look forward to carrying on the training at home and attending adult classes in a few months time :) - Laura
If you’re looking for advice and reassurance in training your dog, I highly recommend Angela. Within half an hour of my enquiry, Angela had replied with a ‘no pressure’, friendly and personalised email with full details of her services. I was able to book a consultation for the next morning where she came to my home to meet me and my puppy and spent 90 minutes with us answering any questions and giving a huge variety of tips and techniques. I wanted help specifically with crate training and Angela seemed to have a wealth of knowledge and experience in this. Angela helped me to understand the positive things I had already been doing and how to build on this and didn’t make me feel patronised at all, I felt much more empowered to get the training right. By the time she left, I felt a lot more positive and confident that my pup will be happy and confident when on her own and I have already started to see improvement. Angela also provided me with a email summary of the consultation that evening and gave me her in depth puppy training pack. Wouldn’t hesitate to call her again in the future if needed, and would definitely recommend. - Khea
Nelly has just finished a course of Puppy training classes. Angela was welcoming and engaging and clearly very knowledgable! She made me feel at ease and now we’re very sad classes have ended! - Louise
Loved puppy classes and learnt so much! Angela was brilliant and Mabel loved every second! - Sophia
Very friendly & professional service, replied to my email quickly and managed to fit us in for a one to one session the next day. Clearly has a lot of experience in her field and there is no pressure for any follow up sessions. Very happy with the service so far, thanks Angela :) - Hollie
Very professional, calm and knowledgeable. Communicated effectively via email which let us get straight to work when visiting our home. Lots of advice was given and explained clearly to us. Followed up by an extensive document to work from.
I would highly recommend, and would use again. - George
Thank you for all the training and additional support you gave to us. Millie really enjoyed Monday evenings at class with a lovely group of people and of course their dogs. We have seen such a huge improvement with her and will continue with her training. Thank you Angela. - Lorraine
Angela helped us so much with our spaniel. He was completely exuberant and hyperactive on walks, but now we can finally take him as a family without feeling embarrassed and don't have to worry about him running off! Really glad we reached out! - Sarah
