All from our happy customers and the occasional well behaved dog too! - We're happy when you're happy.
What can I say but the biggest thank you I could ever express!
You've taught me so so much, and for the first time EVER, I had a relaxed girl in some full on environments (for her). You really made me able to read her and understand her actions to stimuli and how to show her the right way.
I know there is plenty of work that I must put in, but you have given me the confidence in how to do it and shown me the way forward. If I could bottle your knowledge and sell it I would be a millionaire in a very short time!
Really looking forward to our next session, to show you that I have taken in these skills.
Thank you once again,
You are an absolute star
Kay9 Services, really are top rate when it comes to all things related to dog behaviour.
Classes, one to one's, workshops, I have had only positive experiences and my dog loves attending and adores Kay and her team. I highly recommend them.
Toni Shelbourne, TTouch Practiioner, Author.
Sue and I would like to like you for today's lesson.
We found it really helpful and thought you demonstrated a greater understanding of Kerry than we had previously experienced.
Even better, I had cause to divert Kerry's attention away from the fallen apples on Yateley Green on a walk later and she responded immediately to the 'leave' command!
Dear Kay, I just wanted to say what a brilliant fun advanced class at Hawley last night.
Wizard and i haven't been able to come for a few weeks due to my bad health, and i have missed it soooooooo much.
Wizard and i had a brilliant time, your enthusiasm and kindness are as infectious as always, so thrilled to be back!!!! Gypsy can't wait to start her classes again next week!!
Thank you! xxxxxxxxxxx
Thank you so much for the fab training yesterday at the Recall Workshop
We learnt so much and can't believe the difference already.
Took Fido for his walk with his doggy friend today and he was amazing, never once pulled on his recall lead and came every time called, even away from other doggies!
Biggest ‘OMG’ moment though was a moment ago whilst he was in the lounge playing his rough and tough game with his favourite rope toy with Dad with all his play growling. I went into the kitchen and called his name with “come, come, come” and he ran and found me without delay, we were all totally gobsmacked as you can't get him away from his toys, so am feeling very proud and chuffed, thank you so much.
Just would like to thank you for a great session last Saturday.
I thoroughly enjoyed it and I feel much more confident taking loki out on his lead. I have seen an improvement already. He now looks at me before he looks at the other dog. Depending on the dog he doesn't seem as stressed. Thank you.
I just wanted to write and say THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.
I know we will be seeing each other again but today was pretty monumental and I wanted to say Thanks as it is because of your fabulous training (of the humans as well as Hector!)
We have regularly been walking with Hector loose on the training lead and he has been perfect coming when called or whistled and being relaxed around other dogs. I always pick up the lead when others approach but give him room to make decisions on how to behave and he is doing FAB!
The day before yesterday we went to the pond by the reservoir where dogs meet for a swim. We ended up being a party of seven dogs for about 15min (all strangers to us) and even when the calm and social interaction was disturbed by the advance of a Spaniel at full pelt, Hector behaved beautifully!
He is flat out in the lounge as I type lol! I can’t tell you how different he is and how relaxed he has become.
Many thanks, Claire and Hector. Bracknell.
Thank you for giving me the confidence to leave my dog and have a much deserved holiday!
My wife and I have not had a holiday in a very long time, because we didnt want to leave our dog in kennels.
We had had a bad experience with a home boarder too, which left us afraid to leave our beloved Poppy with anyone.
But after attending your classes and seeing you with her and how much she clearly adores you, we knew we had found a perfect match for her and for the first time in 3 years, contemplated a holiday.
I know you said it would be fine and you allowed us to do a few one night stays before hand, but that relieved our nerves. When we left her with you the day we went on holiday, we felt so happy to be leaving her. Something we thought we would never do. Thank you. We had a fabulous holiday and will definitely be booking Poppy in again next time to go away.
Thank you for your patience with us over the last 6 weeks
We have all enjoyed the training and have seen Peanut really improve over the weeks, I feel our bond with her has grown and we are all more confident. Thank you to you and Claire.
Denise and Peanut
Just wanted to say again how much I gained from the Puppy Classes over the last six weeks.
As I said on Tuesday, Ollie had not had any training before we took him on and Roger and I have both worked very hard to get him up to speed.
We are both looking forward to October 7th when we can do the Beginners class. In the meantime we will be working very hard continuing the training that we have learnt at the Puppy Class.
Thanks once again, you are so good and I have learnt so much. So looking forward to October."
Chris and Roger – Ollie and Jay (Golden Retrievers)
I would just like to say how chuffed I am after attending a group social walk today.
I didn't know what to expect and Luka was petrified when we arrived .. But with your guidance and the support of the other walkers (especially Lenny the collie X )
I, but more importantly Luka thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a delight to see him change from a trembling dog with his tail between his legs ignoring any glance from another dog, to a dog running and playing with them!
The Humans were a good crowd too! Husband will def have to come next time coz I heard the men talk about football so as an avid Chelsea supporter I’m
sure they would have a thing or two to talk about !! But the thing that sticks in my mind most, is Francesca coz I had read her testimonial on your website
this morning (I’m always dubious about testimonials!), but it was so nice to hear her relay her story when I asked her about Sophie.
Kay, once again thank you.. I’m certainly coming back and I could kick myself for not attending sooner.
Theresa and Luka
I recently consulted Kay for a 1:1 session to help my dog and myself regain confidence around other dogs.
From the very start Kay's confident and positive attitude, and correct diagnosis of the reason, put us both at ease. She gave me some ground rules and plenty of advice on how to deal with various situations and, immediately, the behavioural problems started to ease. Now, a month or two on, I can take my dog out with confidence and we can enjoy our time together again. She has been available with encouragement and help whenever needed, and we both think she is wonderful.
Cherie and Darcey
You have revolutionised my walks thank you so much. X
The day after our 1-2-1:
Molly and I were having breakfast in our road, the paperboy came and she never misses barking at him. She glanced at him twice other than that she took no notice of him. It's truly amazing!! Thank you. Honestly I'm over the moon. As Bailey can be a bit reactive to cats and bikes I shall use the technique on him too? xx
Three days after our 1-2-1:
Kay Molly loved her trip to your field last night so thank you for that. Also I met my dads dog today. She briefly pulled but quickly looked back at me! And NO barking!!! You have revolutionised my walks thank you so much. X
Just one session and reaping the benefits.
Just to say what a wonderful time I have had over the last few weeks at the Beginners Obedience course.
It's kinda become a social event for me and Lucky, so many lovely people, oh and doggies of course ! Would love to book onto the Intermediate Course next week at Hawley next week at 6.30. I have noticed a great change in Lucky over the last weeks and cannot thank you enough for your support.
Pauline and Lucky
Thanks again for a super group social walk on Sunday and thanks again for all your advice!
You've made such a difference to Indie. By the way, the vet said Indie has a lovely nature. It makes me feel like telling that other unkind trainer, but no doubt I would be wasting my breath!!
Sandra, Paul and Indie sends lots of licks! Essex
It was so lovely to meet you & Kay yesterday!
The recall session was excellent & Kay is clearly incredible at her job! I truly wish I'd done my homework & found you all earlier!
We stopped off on our way home & purchased our long training lead...Patience & perseverance is what we need now
I was a naughty adolescent dog. Kay said it was normal behaviour and assured my owners that I wasn't being naughty through choice.
She came round to our house and since then I have understood everything that my owners want me to do.
She taught them how to communicate with me and now I can communicate with them!
I don'tnt think they liked me very much before Kay came, but now I know they LOVE me and I love them! I also love Kay too!
I just wanted to say thank you for giving us the tools to manage Joeys intensity.....
We brought our little boy home from hospital this afternoon and was expecting what we got- a friendly (kissy!) but over enthusiastic welcome with no sense of space or being gentle.
Rather than panic or create a bad situation, because of what you taught us, we were quickly able to get him to remember 'look at that' and go from there and within minutes had a calm baby and a dog that was only going for a quick check and coming straight over to me for snacks.
A short time after that, he came to me before baby and now he's asleep at my feet snoring while occasionally looking hopefully in the treat bag direction, even when baby makes noise. (Molly quickly became a bit tired and went to sleep).
I know there will be plenty of work to do to make everyone safe and happy, but without your advice we wouldn't be so relaxed so soon and it's been a godsend today- thank you!
Not only is Kay professional and competent with her knowledge of dog training, she is also extremely caring to the dog and owners.
Kay trains both, so the owner is able to lead/control the dog safely.
Kay continues to expand her qualifications and ensures she is up to date with the latest training methods, because dogs, we believe, are like humans, in that they each respond to different teaching methods.
Thanks to Kay our rescue lab grows in confidence every day and Kay is only a phone call/email away, for even the smallest of questions.
Mandy and Keith Murray
We have used Kay’s services as a dog walker and minder for over a year now and have been very pleased with the services she provides.
It is comforting for us to know that our dog is being looked after by somebody who loves dogs so much and she always knows exactly what to do when it comes to veterinary and other things. In fact judging by the reception she gets when she picks him up, I think our dog loves her more than us!
Mr Thompson – Sandhurst
Ollie adores Kay and she has worked wonders teaching him not to pull on the lead and re-enforcing recall when not.
Ollie loves his daily walks and even waits by the door for Kay on the weekends
Mr Andrews - Sandhurst
Kay's canine knowledge coupled with a friendly approach encourages you to get the very best and a bit more from your dog and yourself.
From Paula and Eriq
I cant thank Kay enough for her help!
Her 2 hour consultation is worth every penny and her knowledge is second to none. High recommended
I have used Kay’s services for looking after my dog for quite some time.
He always seems very content when I call to collect him and doesn’t even notice that I am there at first, as he’s too busy playing with her dogs! I travel with work quite a bit, so it is comforting to know that I don’t have to worry about my dog at all. When he is at Kay’s house, he is in more than capable hands!
Classes with Kay are informative, relevant, helpful, but above all, they are FUN.
My boys (two Springer Spaniels) thrived and both passed their KCGC Gold awards because Kay helped them, but just as importantly, she helped me to gain confidence in our abilities.
When we later developed a problem with 'distance control' we had a 'One to One' where Kay showed me many different ways of tackling the issue. Many months later Kay again visited (free of charge) to make sure we were getting to grips with the problem.
I cannot stress enough what a high calibre trainer Kay is, and look forward to starting classes all over again.
F. Scott - Eversley
Poppy and I have learned so much with Kay in obedience classes over the past 9 months.
Kay is always so passionate and enthusiastic about training the dogs and both Poppy and I really enjoy the classes. We work hard, but Kay makes it fun and gets results! Poppy is now on her way to Gold - thanks Kay!
Kay helped me train my Labradoodle, when I thougth all was lost!
We took him to puppy classes elsewhere, but now he was 5, things had kinda gotten out of hand. Until we met Kay. We were sceptical, but Kay assured us she could help.
Now we get compliments wherever we go with him and we take him places we had only ever dreamed of taking him to before.
Life is great again.
I have a lively, lovable, 2 year old Cocker Spaniel, The day care service is invaluable to me
it is wonderful to know I can leave my precious dog in such capable hands, and he is going to have a lovely interesting day so that I can have a day "off" and do something non-doggy friendly and have nothing to worry about as far as the dog is concerned. Kay is always my first choice for Day care for Oscar!
Jane Wright – Yateley
Kay is one of the best trainers I have used. I have had dogs for over 20yrs and used them for both obedience and showing.
Kay is patient, kind but firm, she knows lots of tips and tricks to get through to even the most difficult of dogs. Kay specialises in dogs with "behaviours" and gets good results.
A one hour 1-2-1 with Kay has been a life changing experience. Within 20 minutes we had Blue walking to heel on a loose lead without the aid of treats.
For the past two years Blue had been walked on a halti and was uncontrollableolable without it. Now it's a different story, we both love our walks. Blue is a nervous dog and with Kay'sys help he's getting more and more confidence and so am I
