Kate and Bunty, the Cavapoo

Bunty had our Top Dog 121 training, and then attended our Puppy Intermediate Course.

Jo has been brilliant in helping us to grasp the basics with Bunty.  She is very patient and makes the classes fun and informative.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her workshops to anyone.

Debbie and Buddy, the Cockerpoo

Attended the Puppy Beginners Class.

The classes were really helpful.  Jo helped me recognise my dog’s needs and how to interact with him.  I understand much more dog language now which helps a lot as he interacts with other dogs.  Jo also helped with Buddy’s food guarding issues with great 121 tips to stop him growling if we went near his food while eating.  Thank you.

Sarah and Dusty, the Cocker Spaniel

Dusty attended our Puppy Beginners course.

Dusty’s training with Jo at Pippin Pets was excellent.  We have learnt so much in a short space of time and seen the difference in Dusty each week.  I particularly enjoyed the techniques and seeing how they worked during the exercises.

I would recommend Jo as her training style is very relaxed and fun to learn it the way she teaches it.

Amy, Tom and Wilf, the Mini Dachshund

Attended the Puppy Beginners Class.

We loved our puppy classes!  Wilf has improved so much and we love teaching him new things once learning them from Jo.  We are still working on ‘lie down’ but he’s so low to the ground already that it doesn’t really matter!

Amber, Harrison and Guvnor, the English Bull Terrier

Guvnor attended both our Puppy Beginners and Puppy Intermediate courses.

The change and development through the two courses has been amazing.  Guvnor has loved his time with Jo.  Having an EBT, we were prepared for a stubborn pup so training was a must.  Jo has helped develop Guvnor into a pup we can be confident in.  We have also learnt how to keep him safe too.  His recall has improved beyond words, and the courses have been so much fun.  Thank you!!

We would not hesitate to recommend Jo to anyone with a puppy who wants to learn alongside their fur baby!

Ian, Anna and Juno, the Labradoodle

Attended the Puppy Beginners Class.

Juno loved coming to these classes and responded so well to Jo.  As owners, we learnt so much from Jo’s calm and positive approach.  Jo was friendly and approachable and full of wisdom.  We particularly enjoyed the body language section and we had time to ask questions and bring up topics we wanted to improve on.  Highly recommended!

Nigel, Sue and Arthur, the Show Cocker

Having added another Cocker Spaniel puppy to our household, we felt that we needed to engage a trainer to help train our puppy and ourselves.
We searched online and found Jo from Pippin Pets Services.  After speaking to Jo we decided to engage her services for three sessions which has been invaluable for our puppy and gave us some very useful tips of what we were doing wrong.
At the end of the third session, our puppy was responding well to various commands and it has to be said, it is now down to us to continue with the training.
We would certainly highly recommend Jo and we would have no hesitation in calling on her again for a refresher course.

Richard, Joan and Cassie, the Sprocker Spaniel

Thank you for your help and care, and the training of both Richard and Cassie!

Sarah and Theo (puppy) and Bertie (big bro), the Show Cockers

I would like to thank Jo so much for her amazing training skills. I have never met someone who understands dogs so well. Her patience is second to none. She is reliable, kind, thoughtful and gave me the confidence to implement the training methods she suggested. I would not hesitate to recommend.
Thanks Jo.

Kirsten and Cooper, the Labrador

I booked the Top Dog Training sessions as we had just welcomed Cooper, a 10 week old Fox Red Labrador, into our family and I knew we’d need some expert advice and guidance.  We were keen to have a well-trained, polite and sociable dog and Jo’s training has certainly helped us with the foundations for that.  The clicker training works so well with Cooper.  He has learnt good behaviours through us acknowledging and rewarding them as they happen, and then repeating that process over and over so he starts to do it naturally.

Jo was great at helping me to not feel so overwhelmed by this new born toddler, particularly with advising on toilet training!  Jo is very calm and has bundles of knowledge that she imparts at just the right level and pace in order for it to stick!  I’d definitely recommend the one to one at home training, and now we are continuing to practice what we’ve learned so far.

Janet and Rufus, the Cavapoo

Rufus enjoyed his three sessions with Jo and she gave us useful advice and tips on training. Jo was very responsive and adaptable regarding our needs. I would recommend her services.

Gail and Marty, the Labradoodle

Having never had a dog before, we thought it a good idea to get some friendly advice. Jo came and visited us a few days before our labradoodle puppy Marty arrived and got us well and truly prepared. Then, after a few days his training began. It was amazing and we can’t thank Jo enough. We shall definitely see her for a top up as he grows. Clever dog training worked brilliantly for our puppy and us!

Robin and Ferdie, the Dachshund

We contacted Jo at Pippin Pet Services after we re-homed a one year old Dachshund. We didn’t know too much of the behavioural history or what training had been completed in the past. With Jo’s help we were able to address a few little issues and begin building on his training, session by session. Each lesson was informative and tailored to our specific needs. We now have a very happy, well behaved little dog who is a great addition to our family. Would definitely highly recommend Pippin Pet Services.

Graham and Barley, the Cairn Terrier

Having had a Cairn before I knew they could be a challenge to train and so when our 9 week Cairn puppy arrived I soon realised I needed help. Jo from Pippin Pet Services was just the help we needed. As I cannot drive pet training was always going to need to be local. So what is more local than the training coming to your home! Brilliant! My dog and I were on familiar ground and Jo could see the behaviour that I needed help with (mine and the puppy’s!). We had five tailored sessions which included the basics of recall and attention along with other fun stuff. The plan l have now is to go back to Jo to develop the training so that I and my young dog are better equipped to be responsible and polite in public. I recommend you give PIPPIN a go!

Victoria and Indi, the Labrador

We came across Jo by accident whilst looking for a harness for our new lab puppy. I’m so glad we found her. Jo provided us with a lot of advice for buying a harness and socialising our new puppy. We were thinking about puppy training classes when Jo mentioned one on one training in our own home. We had 5 sessions and they were really great. Jo helped teach us how to train Indi, demonstrated what to do until we got it and introduced us to frankfurter which Indi loves. Jo was very patient and invested time explaining techniques to us and dog body language and behaviour. Jo is committed, she even came back after being jumped on and having her shoe lace chewed in half. Indi is doing really well and thank you to Jo has quickly picked up the essential skills.

Philippa and Dougal, the long haired Pointer

I was very impressed with Jo’s calm approach to training using the clicker / reward technique – and to the calming effect that Jo had when walking in to a room. My dog (and my sanity) benefitted massively from the lessons we learnt and Dougal looked forward to the sessions with great enthusiasm!
I would not hesitate to recommend Jo’s one-to-one classes that take place within the dogs familiar environment.

Helen and Mollie, the Shih Tzu x

Molly is a lively dog, Jo’s training techniques kept her calm and captivated and soon she was quietly following all her commands beautifully. The range of behavoiurs covered during the session was superb – from sitting and walking to heel, to getting her attention and keeping her concentration and so much more, I was extremely impressed. She also worked with me, teaching me how to work with her to see great results. Myself and Molly have since been working together using her techniques and already I have seen a great improvement and I am confident that Jo has set us up with the tools to enjoy a calm and happy life together.
