Here’s what others have said about their experience of Good Start Dog Training

Fern

I just want to say a big thank you for the recent “good Start – Puppy Class” course. It was a great introduction to dog training. We were given the teaching tools for basic commands such as sit, down, wait etc.. Sue is a calm and knowledgeable teacher who passes on valuable learning resources after each lesson and is always there to help between classes. if needs be. Julie & Fern, May 18

Kayli

We appreciate the huge effort Sue makes in preparing both the hall and the course with all the equipment and the internet follow up. Preston Patrick is a good venue. Liked how the tone of the course is gentle and the puppies made welcome including their foibles. We like how dogs are encouraged to be successful rather than made to be obedient. The puppy course is both highly informative and ...

Rolo

What a warm person Sue is. Her lovely smile puts one at ease. My little puppy adores her and we've both progressed superbly under her tuition. Her positivity has hugely increased my confidence which has helped me adapt what I've learned with her to deal better with other puppy issues. The amount of thought she's put into our sessions as well as detailed emails summarising our work together with li...

Ruskin

Sue’s training methods are squarely reward based. Our HWV pup has thoroughly enjoyed his 6 weeks Junior Dog course and will certainly be back for more. Never been to dog classes before and expected them to be the old ‘Barbara Woodhouse’ style..couldn’t have been more wrong. You need to put the work in at home to ensure the methods demonstrated in class are learned, but you can be sure to enhance y...

We have been bringing out SCWT puppies, juniors and adults to Sue’s classes over nine years. Three generations have been trained by Good Start. We show our dogs, and are on the committee of Westmorland Canine Association which means we have plenty of experience of training dogs for shows and are aware of what is needed to have a successful training experience for dog and owner. Sue’s classes are...

Sue is positive, encouraging and non-judgmental. She teaches clearly and the sessions are full of relevant material. Small classes help the puppies to be focused and Sue is alert to avoid potential issues so there is not a minute of wasted time. Brilliant trainer. Brilliant classes.

Tali

Sue delivered the course really well and made sure everything was clear and easy to understand. Sue is incredibly friendly, the class was warm and welcoming and fun! She also has a handy tip for lots of issues you might experience with your puppy. It’s been invaluable to us – we’ve enjoyed taking part and we are sure Tali has too. Caroline and Steve Barber and Tali .

Sue has now helped us train 4 puppies. The courses and information have developed over this time & now provide a valuable package to assist us giving our puppy a ‘Good Start’. Thanks very much Sue.    The class was very well organised, information clearly given & follow up papers very useful. The evening / hall was very well organised to help all the puppies succeed – plent...

Nell and Floss

Sue’s puppy classes are well run and have the puppies interests as a first priority. The hall is set up so each puppy has it’s own space and if the puppy is struggling there is no pressure and things go at the pace of the each individual puppy. The course is brilliant for first time owners who want to get their socialization right. I would definitely recommend these classes.   Nell and ...

Rusty

Our experience at Good Start Dog Training Puppy Classes in Castle Street Centre, Kendal, has been very rewarding for both us and our Norfolk Terrier puppy Rusty. The first thing that struck me about Sue and her training methods was that the emphasis of training is about building a good relationship with the dog based on mutual respect, trust and cooperation. This is such a refreshing approach to p...
