HIGHLIGHT TESTIMONIAL

“I took my Jack Russell puppy, Lily, to her first Whistle and Wag course in January 2022. Lily was 8 months old and had a rough start in life so was reactive around dogs and people that got too close to her, didn’t sleep much and just couldn’t relax. She also has Inflamed Bowel Disease and Colitis, so wouldn’t eat and would often be ill for weeks at a time which had made training her extremely difficult. I was at the end of my tether and as soon as I contacted Jemma and Nici for help they were so supportive with me and patient with Lily.

The classes provided a safe environment for us to learn, the exercises were fun and adapted to suit every dogs ability. They gave us all time during each exercise to make good progress before moving on to the next one. In no time at all Lily learned to focus on each task rather than everything else around her and was becoming increasingly comfortable being around other people and dogs as a result.

The homework that is set each week helped us build on the skills we had learnt in class and laid good foundations for working on her manners and building a solid routine for her. When I had questions or concerns between each class Jemma and Nici were always quick to respond and offer much needed advice personalised to our needs, giving examples on how to implement particular pieces of training and always followed up with me to see how we were getting on.

In between the courses we have had 1-1 sessions with Jemma to work on challenges we had with Lily’s sleeping routine, chewing and handling which were invaluable to us. She was able to find the root cause of why Lily couldn’t sleep, taught us how to understand her needs better, implement structure in her day and even helped us find food and treats suitable for Lily’s dietary requirements.
We started having a few good moments in the day, then when she took to her new diet we had some good days every now and again and now we just have steady and predictable days. It’s hard for us to imagine a time where we would spend over an hour trying to get her in to her crate at night, or it taking 2 people to get her collar, or dreading taking her somewhere indoors with other people because it turns out we have a dog that is full of love and loves to sleep after all!
Lily still goes to classes to continue building on her skills and her confidence in different situations and I find the classes just as useful now as I ever did.
Thank you to Jemma, Nici and Molly for giving us the support we needed to make Lily the calm, confident and happy dog she was always meant to be!”

We have just completed the beginners classes with our miniature Jack Russell and she has ended the course a completely different dog! With plenty of time to practice each task during the session and Jemma & Nicci’s personalised and thoughtful advice we have a much calmer and happier little dog. Jemma’s 1:1 sessions are so productive and have helped us deal with our dogs fears at home in a positive and safe space for her. Thank you!

Great fun training for both the dogs and their humans. The trainers are able to adjust to what is going to work best for the individuals. It has been a great part of our dogs education. Well worth attending

We have done Whistle and Wag puppy and intermediate classes with our rescue schnauzer and and she is a different dog as a result. They have given fantastic and thoughtful advice about how best to help her overcome her fears and how to build a bond with her through positive training. Most of all it's been great fun for both of us, she loves going there.

I have been training with Gemma, Niki & Molly at Whistle & Wag since my puppy, Copper, was 13weeks old. Copper is turning into a beautiful, well trained dog and this is good to the hard work Whistke & Wag put into their training with us all. I thoroughly enjoy my Monday evenings with the group as does Copper who comes home mentally exhausted ☺️
