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

Aela

Sue’s training is really enjoyable for both puppy and the owners. For young puppies this is a great course to learn the basics of training, but also fantastic socialisation. The training is as useful for the owners as it is for the puppy! Sue is really supportive and provides excellent on-line material, as well as many treats for the puppies. Having completed the puppy training we’ve now booked on...

Bailey

Have taken part in 3 of Sue’s classes and have found them all interesting and very enjoyable. Well worth the hour journey each way. Look forward to taking part in her summer classes with my pup and older dog. Ann Nottingham & Bailey April 2018

Taylor

We thoroughly enjoyed the puppy training classes. We were given lots of useful tips and ideas. It helped to focus us as a family on the importance of good foundational training for our puppy ‘Taylor’. It also helped the children take part and realise that their behaviour was just as important in the training of our puppy. Mary Woodward & ‘Taylor’ March '18

Noddy

I would recommend Sue’s classes as they are well structured and tailored to a wide range of different dogs. I learnt lots about effective and positive training and also about how my puppy learns and takes in new things. Classes are fun and educational for dog and owner and my puppy has loved attending. Andy Price & Noddy. July '18

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

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...

Flora

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...

Bonnie

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. Ann Dunnington and Bonnie – Feb 18
