Charie is a typical Cocker- A 3 ring Circus going on in his head most of the time but just wants to play with other dogs. Tips learned in class definately have helped and he has improved week by week. Would recommend anyone to do the puppy class, for us they have been invaluable. Thank you, Monica, Darren with Charlie.

The enthusiasm and expereince of Mechelle, encourages good practice and this does become a desire to be able to fully enjoy your dog. Would recommend to anyone with a young dog. Claire and Ted

Learnt loads, both about the dog and me as a handler. All owners should do this course. Karen and Nenet

I previously attended a dog school in Oxford which I thought was good, however having now attended Curlabull Training I strongly believe it is the best training club you are likely to find. Mechelle's approach to training and knowledge of all breeds really does make training, even difficult breeds, a pleasure. So happy I discovered Curlabull Canine Training. Our Akita Sam is such a chilled male akita and I strongly believe this is down to attending training with Curlabull. Julie with Akira and Sam

I recently adopted an 18mth old Cairn terrier, who is absolutely lovely and friendly with people including children but growlly and very reactive with other dogs.

I signed us up for puppy classes as I had never dealt with a dog with issues.

Mechelle and Amanda are very welcoming and both are hugely knowledgeable about training and the psychology of a dog.

They have given me the encouragement, skills and confidence needed to deal with Brian growling at other dogs and at the end of the course he was like a different dog.

We both enjoyed the classes and I now feel like I have a great bond with Brian.

We look forward to joining the Bronze good citizen class.

Thanks so much! Susan and Brian
