WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US
After having seen friends make the mistake of not attending training classes with their puppy, resulting in an aggressive dog who is difficult to walk, we were determined not to make the same mistake. From the outset, it was apparent how much experience Wendy and the rest of her training team have and how they understand the individual needs of all the dogs in the classes. They made us feel very welcome and any issue you had with your dog's training was dealt with personally and professionally. It was quite testing at times and hard work but we worked our way through from puppy award to gold and received some outstanding feedback from the gold examiner, making all the hard work worthwhile. Wendy's motto 'A trained dog is a happy dog' is certainly true for us - we have a well behaved, well socialised and very happy dog. Thanks Wendy! (Julie from Macclesfield)
I nervously started puppy training classes with Wendy when my dog was just 16 weeks old, progressing through Bronze and Silver, and am now in the middle of Gold training classes. Inevitable there have been hic-cups along the way, but Wendy has always been there to help with not only sound, practical advice, but also humour and understanding. When it comes to dog training, there really isn't anything Wendy hasn't seen or heard. Great training, great service, great results - what more could you ask for! (Karen from Macclesfield)
After a bad experience with a previous trainer,who used methods totally inappropriate to the breed (and against KC guidelines)we were almost ready to give up. Having a large male puppy,we new this wasn't an option.
He passed KC gold standard at just 11 months old and after being assessed and accepted as a P.A.T. dog bringing comfort to many young people in his work
The determination and commitment,backed up so clearly by a love of dogs, shown by Wendy when faced with a dog who initially wouldn't do what is asked of him is unbelievable, every step was broken down into manageable steps for our puppy.Every challenge was celebrated when achieved
I cannot speak highly enough of the care and respect shown by Wendy to both the dogs and their owners at each class, and would have no hesitation in recommending her. Thanks to Wendy we now have a dog that we are able to take anywhere with the knowledge that he will cause no problems at all.

A very big thank you to Canine Companions.
Kevin and I know that Harvey can be an excitable puppy and we're very appreciative that you've stuck with us through some of his more challenging moments.
You've given us confidence in how to handle him and have amazed us by getting him to pass his Silver Award.
We're really pleased, proud and grateful and looking forward to further training with you in future, it makes such a difference.
Thanks very much - for helping us find a dog - he is perfect for our family and we are really please we have been to your classes and have achieved bronze silver and gold awards - we couldnt ask for more. We were uncertain at times but all that has past - we have an obedient and a happy dog, just got a few more milestones to try and cross - but we will get to where we want to be with lots of love and work Thanks to Wendy, Jane and Alana (Christine Macclesfield )
