When I first got my kelpie-collie x at the start of 2015, I went to the best local knowledge on dog training I knew of, Kirsty. Over a few chats with a cuppa and after watching her work with her two, I felt pretty confident to train up my young fella. Within a few months, I had him trained well enough to walk around town without a lead, to trust him with the teenagers at the kids camp we lived and worked at, obey set commands and travel distance in vehicles. He’s doing well. And every day I’m with him, I’m putting those initial learnings from Kirsty into practice. I can definitely recommend Kirsty’s work with training dogs.Dan
My 14-month-old Kelpie was starting to develop very headstrong antics, and I was getting worried about his jumping and not walking obediently off the lead. He was also treating my older dog too roughly. Kirsty has done two sessions with him so far and his behaviour has really improved. She’s given me some easy strategies to use with him – and I feel like he is listening to me so much better than he was! We are all going to keep working with Kirsty – having a lively dog is great, but only if he knows how to contain it when he needs to! Thanks Kirsty – highly recommend this service.Booma
