  • “When we got our Jack Russell, Peggy, just under a year ago, we were her fourth owners in 11 months. Needless to say, Peggy didn’t have the best start in life and had experienced very little discipline. I was worried that she would never really settle down. Lee was recommended to us by a friend so we got in touch. We were advised Peggy would benefit from some 1-1 private sessions which we booked. I can honestly say they changed everything, Lee really helps you to understand your dog and the impact your actions can have. After just two sessions Peggy was like a different dog, we continued to use the skills we’d learned from Lee and still use them now. We’ve learned with Peggy as a team and she’s gone from being extremely nervous and a little bit naughty to being a confident, well mannered dog that we’re happy to take anywhere with us. Lee told us that he held agility classes so we decided to give them a go, we’ve now been attending for around 18 weeks and have moved from the beginner into the intermediate class. Lee’s enthusiasm is brilliant and we enjoy every single session we attend – theres always something new to learn. We’re so glad we found School of Dogs and couldn’t recommend Lee and his team enough.

  • We first met Lee when we had a problem with our rescue dog Barney. The problem was sorted within half an hour. This is when we found out about Lee’s junior agility classes. We enrolled Barney  and Ellen (6 year old granddaughter) where they are doing very well. One year later they are still both enjoying attending agility class. Myself over this period being an observer has seen the improvement in both Ellen and Barney also the other dogs and junior handlers have improved as some dogs proving to be more of a problem. Which Lee handles with great skill and patients. Would recommend his services to anyone. (Peter, Ellen & Barney)
