I cannot speak highly enough of Leah and have already recommended Positive Training For Canines to a number of people as a result of our positive experience.  My dog has attended Leah’s classes since he was a young puppy (he is now 1.5 years), recall workshops and has recently started fun agility which he ABSOLUTELY LOVES - an hour that works his little legs but most importantly, his very busy brain!  Puppyhood and adolescence has brought us a number of challenges which has tested us as dog owners - we had sleepless nights and anxiety issues around being left and subsequently, being around other dogs.  Leah has helped us tackle each of these as they have arisen.  She is approachable, non-judgemental and has always helped us see all the amazing behaviours our dog offers us all the time!  We are very lucky to have such a strong bond with our dog, a relationship of mutual understanding and trust, which I honestly believe that without Leah’s assistance we may not have achieved.

I have taken both of my Poodles to Leah from puppy class through to adults and I highly recommend her and would never take my dogs anywhere else. We go to weekly classes, agility and workshops and every time I am amazed at what Leah helps me achieve with my dogs. She's amazing and offers high quality training which is always fun and totally tailored to the needs of your dog.

We have worked with Leah with 2 dogs now and have found her to be kind and understanding with lots of helpful hints and tips. Our eldest dog is now 8 years old and an absolute joy, yet as a puppy her fear aggression was so problematic that she was almost unmanageable. Our vet even suggested that euthanasia might be the best option! Yet Leah supported and encouraged us to keep trying and her techniques have really paid off. We now have a really wonderful dog that we can take anywhere without worrying.

More recently, we have acquired a new puppy who is also becoming reactive in adolescence. Leah has been able to provide clear targeted advice once again. She is calm and positive with an uncritical approach which makes it easy to ask for help when it is needed. We have attended puppy and junior classes and Leah has been really helpful in ensuring that we get the most out of these sessions despite the extra challenge of an anxious puppy. The classes are well-run and in a calm environment. I would definitely recommend her classes to all new dog owners and to anyone in need of extra help with behavioural issues. We are really thankful for her hard work and expertise.

We have two full of life Cocker Spaniels which we started training 7 years ago. I can proudly say that Leah is the reason they are such friendly, loveable and well-trained dogs.  So many of my friends and indeed complete strangers have complimented on how well behaved they are.  Although this is down to a lot of hard work and dedication by my husband and I, we could not have achieved these results without the guidance and support of Leah.  Her patience in teaching and giving dog owners the tools they require with her Positive Reward and Reinforcement Training is outstanding, not only does she have the ability to train dogs, more importantly is her ability to train the owners! Leah is always at the end of a phone to help with any behavioural problems we have, from a puppy who didn’t want to go for walks, to a 4-year-old who seemed to have a passion for destroying my sofa!  With her experience in reading dogs body language, she easily recognised the signs and gave us the solutions which worked successfully. I have lost count of the many puppy/dog owners that I have met and passed on Leah’s details, she is always at the top of my recommendation list.

Leah recently walked my dog for me whilst I was away on holiday. I worry about absolute everything and can hand on heart say that I felt so reassured and happy knowing he was in such safe hands. I got a picture and update after every walk which made me feel so much happier knowing how he was and how he got on etc. Hugo is always happy to see Leah and this puts me very much at ease!
I was able to relax on holiday for the first time ever and would recommend Leah to everyone! Thank you from both me and Hugo!

We started with the puppy class with Leah, which was fun and informative. Leah always helps with each dogs needs in a kind and patient way we then progressed to the agility class which was very enjoyable gradually progressing around the course each week. Now winter has arrived we are doing indoor trick workshops which challenges both the dog and their owner, but is very rewarding when we achieve. Looking forward to starting agility again in the spring.
I would 100% recommend Leah as a trainer for her kind ,patient and fun way of teaching.

We joined puppy classes with Leah in October and from our first session we knew that we'd made the right decision. The 6 weeks classes helped us as a family (with a primary school age child) to develop a consistent approach in the way we engaged with our dog (Toy Cavapoo) indoors and outdoors. We've continued our learning and started incorporating practical sessions at home during lockdown whenever we could. Our puppy loved it....we got to a point where she did not want to get off her training mat what so ever! Our puppy wanted to learn more and more, so did we! We decided to continue with Leah's training and moved onto Junior classes where we consolidated our learning and also challenged our skill base regularly. At 6 months our puppy followed all basis commands consistently and by then also built eye contact which was lovely to see when out and about. We have lots more to learn and I am sure we will be back for more lessons when the world changes again after lockdown! The classes are user friendly, inclusive and stress free, we would recommend it to all!

I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you so much for your help and attention at times when we needed you. I’ll confess, I was sceptical at first about how dog training could be done online but you did a terrific job at adapting and we got a lot out of it.
I think back to my rather anxious email to you asking for tips back in October when we picked Ruby up and now look at the lovely pet that Ruby has grown into.
Thank you so much for your help to date and your clear dedication to the training, clearly more than just a job to you!

As a first time dog owner working with Leah & joining her training courses has provided me with good techniques to train my dog to acceptable behaviour.

She offers practical assistance & reassurance when you think you’ll never get it right!! Her courses are also fun.

I have attended Leah's online classes for the last 3 months with my puppy. It has been fantastic. I'm new to positive reinforcement training and each week we'd learn new exercises to practice with our dogs. My puppy has loved it all and is now far better behaved, with better lead work than I've ever achieved before with traditional methods. Leah explains the 'dog logic' behind the methods she uses and looks to solve problems from the dogs perspective so you set them and yourself up for success. It works. Couldn't ask for better.

We cannot find words to describe how grateful we are to Leah, at Positive Training For Canines. Leah started helping us, when our puppy was 12 weeks old. The support, encouragement, advice and understanding has been so helpful. So far, we have not been able to meet Leah in person, due to the coronavirus, but we have had online sessions with her on a one to one basis, and also joined a group class on zoom. Leah is really approachable, very friendly and is in constant contact with us, to see how we are getting on.

Very highly recommended for any canine owners.
