Today I walked my dog on his first walk without him pulling me all over the place! I had a 1-1 with Helen and she has taught me loads in just one session! I watched endless videos online to help me before booking and nothing worked so I booked in with Helen and I’ve seen the benefits instantly! I am so pleased and thankful for the advise and instructions I have been given to follow.

I HIGHLY recommend Helen for ALL of your dog training / behaviour needs.
Helen has a wealth of knowledge and is absolutely an expert in her field.
She truly understands what your dog needs and what YOU need to do, to meet these.
I have been going to Helen for training classes, social days, social walks and 1-1 sessions for over a year now with my highly energetic, loveable Boxer boy; Banks (He loves Helen, she has some other names for him too)
He has had a weeks' residential with Helen to learn house & food manners, walking on and off lead and to socialise properly with other dogs.
At different phases in a dog's life come different challenges - and Helen is ALWAYS on hand to help me meet these head on!!
She has gone above and beyond for Banksy & I. Particularly of late, training children with dogs, if you have family members/children that might be nervous around dogs - Helen can train them too!
The training, help and advice she gave us with my 5-year old nephew has been invaluable.
I've had endless amounts of advice including nutrition, reactivity, obedience, on / off lead walking, proper socialisation and more - I also now know that proper dog jumpers and slobber bibs exist!!
I might not ever be able to eat another cocktail sausage or look at a cube of cheese in the same way, but I know not to give Banksy dry treats. Trust me, the after effects are toxic!!
Although you take your dog to Helen for training - you’ll get more than your fair share too!

Having our first puppy and knowing what to do was a bit daunting for us so finding the classes provided by Helen was a relief! The training has been fabulous for our pup but also for us! With advice on everything puppy/dog related, Helen certainly knows her stuff which has been invaluable for us. From day one of training we knew we were in good hands. Our pup is excitable, energetic, enthusiastic and wants to be friends with everyone - we wouldn't have her any other way, and with Helen's guidance we have learnt all the tools we need to manage her wonderful personality. I cannot recommend Helen's Masterclass Dog Training and Behaviour classes more highly. Thank you for your wise words and support.

I have a 7 month old Doberman x Doberman GSD who was nervous and reactive. After a residential stay, where she was thoroughly pampered as well as worked, she is now a calmer and more confident girl. Helen has helped me to understand her unique personality and taught me how to carry on with the training. If you are thinking of seeking Helens help for whatever reason, I couldn't recommend her highly enough.
5* and then some!! What can I say other than she has transformed our dog! We will forever be so grateful!
Our beautiful Vizla went to stay with Helen for a period of two weeks as a residential program. She was welcomed into the family with open arms and communication with us was daily. We travelled from afar to seek Helen's professional training because we just could not get the help we needed locally. We are a busy family of five + our lovely Vizla. Family life is complicated & challenging and the dogs behaviour meant a mum of three was even more stressed out! I wasnt able to walk my dog becauser of her behaviour and how other dog walkers treated us. And really was at the end of the road. I was only able to walk her in one place & at certain times to avoid people & dogs & comments!!! Stressful & not fun for me or the dogs! My children, especially my four year old adore the dog & would have been heartbroken to lose her to another family - along comes Helen!! We are now able to go anyplace we like for a walk, she's calmer in the house, she's calmer out & about, follows commands (although I'm still working on my training, I'm trying my best to channel my inner Helen!!) and genreally seems so much happier!
I would highly recommend Masterclass Dog Training. Helen cares so much for the dogs & the support after my dogs stay has been invaluable! Patients, kind & amazing!
Marty was an out of control hooligan when we took him to Helen.
He was 3 years old and his behaviour had got gradually worse to the extent that we were embarrassed to take him out.
He was aggressive and attacked other dogs seemingly for no reason. On the lead he would scream and bark while pulling and tugging in all directions. We could never let him off the lead because he would run for the hills, causing havoc on his way to the nearest road. He wasn't much better around the home, growling at us and jumping up at visitors.
We were bewildered by his behaviour as we had dogs for many years and none that behaved like Marty.
Luckily for us we found Helen and after talking to her on the phone I felt very relieved and hopeful that she could help Marty. He went to stay with Helen and her pack for 3 weeks where she found out that he was a very insecure little dog. Helen helped him overcome all of his problems. She really is a miracle worker and we now have a calm, confident very well behaved dog who to my amazement can be let off the lead in open spaces. Helen has transformed Marty's life and we are so pleased that he can now be a happy dog.
