Hi Derek, just wanted to say a massive thank you for your time and training with Meg & Millie. Total eye opener and after just 1 night they seem to be coming on leaps and bounds with regard to the in house training. We shall continue this training outside on walks and keep you posted on their progress. You are an absolute god send! We just want the best out of our dogs and you have taught us how to achieve this. Thank you
Just wanted to say a big thank you to Derek for all his patience and hard work with us last night. Derek occasionally walks Alfie our spaniel and had recognised some anxiety issues with him.We booked a training / behavioural session with Derek to try and establish the cause and rectify a few issues we were having. After a long talk with Derek he then went onto explain the causes of the anxiety and how we could work with Alfie to make him a calmer, happier dog.Everything he said made sense and when it came to rectifying some of the issues Alfie immediately responded in a positive way. The session was relaxed, calm ,informative and Derek is very professional. After only one session a lot of the negative behaviours with Alfie have disappeared and he is a pleasure to walk on a lead now! Huge thanks to Derek for his patience. :-)) Would highly recommend Derek's services...thanks again, Sam & Craig...
Before I knew Derek I spent lots of time and money trying to find a trainer or behaviourist to help with my nervous collie. Most of those courses told me to avoid, ignore and distract with treats which made no difference. After a short stay with Derek he was able to tell me the real cause of Una's behaviour and how to address it. It's not an overnight fix but he taught me how to deal with Una's problems so I can take these forward at home. We are so lucky to have him in the area to get real help and advice! Una is a much calmer dog already, his intervention has broke the bad cycle of behaviour which has given me the chance to work on Una's issues. He's the only person I would trust with Una and he is a great teacher for people too! Answered all my questions and made everything really understandable. I would recommend everybody should have a session with him, I just wish I knew about him when we first brought Una home!

It was really nice to meet Derek today, he helped us a lot with our dog and would recommend to anyone who has any issues, big or small that they may have, been struggling with ours and within a short space of time Derek had him figured out. What a relief! we now have the tools and methods on how to deal with issues, less stress for the dog and us. Thanks again Derek.
Absolutely amazing - from bedlam to tranquility in 2 hrs.
I suspect the owners get more training than the dogs, but you are not really aware of it. My dogs loved Derek and sat with heads cocked listening to him at the end of the session.
I would recommend him to anyone!!
Hi. I had a German Shepard of 2yrs who was scared of everything. I've had him for just over a year. 2hrs with Derek and he is a different dog. I now have a more relaxed dog who takes instructions. My friends and family can't believe the difference! Derek gave me clear, concise and easy to understand techniques which worked. Thank you so much Derek and I can't wait for the next session! From a more relaxed dog and owner, Debbie
Thanks for an amazing first session working with our dogs today - I came home to a calm house tonight and two calm dogs! If this is what they're like after the first session, can't wait to see how they'll be after a few more sessions! Thank you!
Derek walked in my home during a time where I was about to give up. He transformed not only the dogs but me. He showed me techniques, built my confidence and already there has been a huge change. Its hard work but with Derek's support it all seems easier. Cant thank him enough!
Great training session with Derek from Paws For Walkies today, never thought that my front door could sit open without Stella making a break for it!! Great tips for walking Costa & Stella without them pulling. Just need to work on keeping Stella calm. Hopefully work up to getting them off the lead in the new year. If anyone needs any dog training advice contact Derek!!
Hey Derek just to say a big thanks for your help again! Roxy is walking better on the lead already and seems to like her bed rather than the couch! She also ate all her food for the first time in months and that's after only a day! and she managed a trip to the vet without barking at anyone! Thanks so much can see the improvement already! Roll on January can hopefully have her off lead x
You are amazing.... can't believe the difference you have made with my 4 dogs in 2 hours. Value for money.... you bet you are. See you in December xx
Derek came and gave me and dad tools and information on how to deal with our 9month old border terrier. His recall was non existent and walking him was a chore. Know he is a calm wee man. We can walk anywhere and have the confidence to let him off t he leash. You have to put in the work but it pays off big time. Xxx
Since Derek came and spent a couple of hours with Buddy and I the difference in our walks is amazing, I am very grateful for all his help I wish I had known about him when we had our collie who was a very troubled wee dog.
