"I was not knowing what to do and whether I was doing it right or not. Lacking confidence in knowing how to help my dog feel happy and confident and to build a nice, trusting relationship. Bek is warm, welcoming and helpful. The training helped me a lot! By normalising what I was finding hard and giving specific, actionable feedback and strategies that I could try."
"We were told that Buddy was not ‘normal’ as he did not like to be petted.. but then when we met Bek we understood that his confidence and love just need to be won.. Buddy IS normal.. just shy in some instances and cheeky in others. Bek’s approachable manner has allowed us to freely ask questions, that may seem simple but to us daunting .. ! Bek listened, and helped us to work on our goals, and then followed them up. We feel we have gained so much. Thank you for everything!"
