 Zoe (mum to Deefer) was inspired to study to become a canine behaviourist due to her rescue dog’s anxiety. She is now studying for an Advanced Diploma in Canine Applied Animal Behaviour.  Zoe delivers puppy training classes and supports with admin.

We did the puppy classes, the first 2 stages were with Dani, who was amazing! Our last stage with Leanne who was just as amazing! Both so knowledgeable and helpful. We did a split of Zoom/in Person and both were equally as helpful. We’re now looking into doing further 1-1 session to further Winnie’s skills.

Trainers are knowledgeable and friendly - offering all kinds of tips alongside the official course details. Handouts are given to help keep a track of what you're being taught and classes are small so lots of individual attention. Inky & I have learned lots in a lovely kind atmosphere.

Donna is an amazing trainer. We had one-2-one puppy training sessions with Donna. She helped us understanding our puppy & training her with positive methods. We have a Beagle puppy 3,5 months old now. We are first time dog parents. Donna is a very reassuring, calm, patient & helpful trainer. I highly recommend Donna. Thanks for all your help so far!

We really enjoyed the 2 lots of 4 weekly puppy courses we booked for Scooby our GSD with Abbey Dog Training. I was sceptical at first to be honest, but you ran both courses brilliantly, were attentive to all our silly, repeated questions(!!) and gave us excellent tips and information to help reinforce everything we learned in class so we could practice at home between each week. It was also great to meet other owners and their pups and overall the 8 weeks of training have made a real difference to how we and Scooby now interact. We've come on leaps and bounds as both dog and owners. Many thanks again Lesley for an excellent programme which I would recommend to any new puppy owners.

Thank you so much for your guidance over the past 12 weeks. I was very sceptical about the course before I started as Bully is my first pet and after speaking to people with dogs, they didn’t sound convinced dog training would help. I’m very happy I ignored them and booked as I believe I learned so much that will benefit me and Bully.
