I am always amazed by the skill and patience Louise has with the dogs she trains and their owners, she is very thorough and explains in detail the steps to communicate and train your dog. If you are unsure or have a problem Louise is only too happy to explain why your dog isn't responding correctly and gives you the guidance and confidence to continue. I highly recommend Louise and Animal Talent.

Having been through 3 different trainers and various training classes we were reaching the end of our tether with our rescue Maltese. Louise has helped us so much not just with our Maltese but with all of our dogs. We have learnt so much from her and will be eternally grateful for what she has done for us and our furries! If your looking for a honest, knowledgable, no nonsense trainer then I would highly recommend Louise!
