Am three weeks into the course and both us and the dog are loving it! Educating Alice is a great companion book.
Great trainer.. Great sense of humour extremely experienced and came highly recommended to me by other people attending the training. Highly recommended 5*****
We bought our german shepherd pup wolfie to your training classes 3 years ago you helped us loads and hes a great dog on and off the lead,Im always recommending you to people and you never know we may be back to see you soon :)
First time dog training and we both loved it, relaxed but informative, Fitz has a great sense of humour. Rocco’s learning loads thank you.
Our first day of training here today & already really impressed. We have both really enjoyed it, very organised, clear instruction & plenty of help on hand, with a good dose of humour thrown in. We will be practising what we learnt today ready for next week, already looking forward to it. Thank you More...
This is the place to get best advise and guidance on how to train your dog.
Amazing instructor, and great training school. I have been around many dog trainers and he is by far the best !
Which can be seen by example of his own dogs and there achievements
We can't recommend Cosford Dog training enough! 6 weeks and our boy Fudge is a different dog! Thank you Fitz for your patience & guidance, we enjoyed every second and saw the changes in his behaviour from the first hour! Looking forward to the group sessions. More...
Just finished the dog warden course with fitz , had a great time picking up knowledge on how to handle dogs safely for the dog and ourselves.

Attended Cosford Dog Training last year for one to one. FItz rebuilt our confidence and our adolescent dog's confidence, which has greatly improved his quality of life.
Since then, with another male, we have passed our Bronze and two days ago our Silver Good Citizens Test. Fitz is kind, humorous and very knowledgable. We are fortunate to have attended his classes and hope to attempt Gold next. More...
Our rescue puppy Dixie had 1:1 sessions with fitz which helped us so much even after the first session. She has since done the puppy course and has just completed the bronze course. She really is a different dog to the one we got 6 months ago thanks to fitz and his team. More...
Can't fault the training courses, we are waiting to get on the kennel club silver course the dog absolutely relishes the challenge. Puppy & bronze negotiated so far. Fitz makes it enjoyable yet very informative & helpful for group & individual issues when they occur More...
We have just finished the puppy/introductory course with our rescue Labrador Alfie, sometimes know as 'mental Alfie' - we're extremely pleased to say he is now no longer mental! Huge thanks to Fitz and Fiona, such an enjoyable course and a fab way way to spend an hour on a Sunday afternoon! Can't wait to move onto the Bronze Course! More...
Shadow went through the puppy course and bronze unfortunately he didn't pass the silver but he is still going to try.
This is after a training group in Wolverhampton told the class we had a nasty dog.
Thanks to Fitz for all the help Shadow is growing in to a beautiful dag. More...
We would wholeheartedly recommend Fitz to help you with any training or other needs you have for your dog. He is kind, patient and knowledgeable and puts the needs of your dog first. We took our very nervous Romanian rescue dog to Fitz on a one to one basis. At the start Ollie had no recall or real regard for commands we gave him. Fitz trained us as much as Ollie and made us realise where we were going wrong and we now have a much more balanced, confident (even a little cocky!) little chap who we are happy to let off lead and who walks much more nicely on lead! We cant wait to sign up for group classes shortly. Thanks again Fitz xx More...

Zola passed the puppy course today. We've had ups and downs along the way but overall its been a good experience. We've had some good advice and tips from Fitz which we will put in to practice. We're going to have a break for the summer then get enrolled for the Bronze course. Fingers crossed she will pass that too. Thanx Fitz. See you soon xx More...
Updating my previous review as our working line GSD Tala went through puppy class and her brother is currently doing bronze. I can't recommend Fitz highly enough. He is clear and forthright, genuinely loves dogs. More than that he speaks dog tailoring his instruction to each individual dog to get the very best from each dog and handler team. He has probably forgotten more about dogs than I will ever know and I feel privileged to be able to train with him. Off and on I have been working various dogs in classes for over 13 years here and in the States and I am loving the positive training at Cosford. More...
Loved the training really helpful, Ella really enjoyed going each week meeting up with the other dogs. Looking forward to starting the bronze
Brill my puppy completed the puppy class today. Loved the course . Was easy to learn and fitz was a great teacher to the point and down to earth. Definitely recommend
Excellent way to enjoy and make the most of owning a dog. I’m never going to be a brilliant trainer but am a lot better than would have been if I had not had Fitz’s help. Every dog deserves the best & would highly recommend training to any dog owner. More...
Fantastic training, even though Delta didn't pass her bronze today (of all days she decided to have a day off from recall) we have learnt so much from going to Fitz for training, without him, we would have got so much wrong with our pup and wouldn't of done her any justice. Thank you for the support and guidance, we would highly recommend Fitz to anyone. More...
Tilly, border collie, and I loved taking part in the puppy course. As an newly, inexperienced dog owner, Fitz really showed me how much work I needed to put in with her and how to do it to get her to be the best she could be (she is a naturally quick learner).
We had a set back after the course where Tilly was diagnosed with growing bone disease with a treatment plan of large doses of steroids which knocked Tilly about a fair bit, training became very minimal parts of her weeks. When we weaned her off the steroids eventually despite hesitating slightly we signed up for the bronze course with Fitz and safe to say me and Tilly were so out of practice and it showed on the first week. But the six week bronze course with Fitz and co made such a difference again, even after that first week. His two helpers gave me several ideas to keep Tilly's attention on me and under my control (rather than everything else) whilst Fitz was demonstrating/teaching. Fitz and co, made me think again about how I as the trainer approached tasks in a way that would best suit Tilly and it paid off! I was happy enough with Tilly's progress that I didn't mind if we didn't pass the course first time (although we did!). We just need to keep it up this time and hopefully have an attempt at the silver course, to see how we can further progress.
I thoroughly recommend cosford dogs for training, particularly if your inexperienced or not had much luck with other places. Fitz and co, will make you and your dog work hard together and you'll see the benefits of it. More...
Truly excellent 1:1 training. Milly [Bichon Frise] was frightened of large dogs and by the 4th session was happily romping around the field with two of Fitz' dogs. Thankyou so much, Fitz. I am so pleased you were recommended to me More...
Don't do Facebook, so I've gotta leave a review here Fitz is a very special bloke, understands dogs after working with them for so many years ❤️He also understands "us humans"! ! He taught so much to "this little old lady with a small pea brain" Thank You FItz (and Fee ) xx More...
Great atmosphere and Fitz is so helpful and brilliant at what he does. A credit to his profession ;-)
We took our new dog here as we wanted to train her and get her socialised with other dogs as she was nervous of them. We had a few one to ones which were great and then joined the puppy training class. Fitz is a great trainer and really gives you the tools you need to reinforce the training with your dogs at home as well. Our dog has come a long way since attending his training sessions, and we hope to continue progressing with her by attending the bronze training classes. More...
We did the puppy course and I'd thoroughly recommend it. Some serious owner training is involved. Fitz is very forthright with his views and wonderfully and colourfully expressive. Buy the book, meet the man, be prepared to be educated, and the dog will love it too. More...
We have taken our puppy through the introductory course and she is now on bronze, the whole way through Fitz has shown his dedication in helping people become the best for their dogs. Having never had a puppy before he has been essential in helping us learn what we need to do for our pup so that we are able to give her the mental stimulation and guidance of what we want her to do. Fantastic trainer and brilliant with all the dogs in the courses. I would highly recommend to take your dogs here! More...
Excellent highly qualified trainer with years of experience. Dogs love him.
This is a fantastic school with a trainer who trains with positive methods and really knows what he is doing.
Great trainer ... makes sessions fun
I can highly recommend cosford dog training from personal experiences. We started with 1-1 sessions as we had recently adopted a 6 month old dog, straight away we were shown the basics needed to have a happy relationship. Then we moved on to complete the kennel club good citizen bronze award. through reward based training me, my partner and our dog have a great relationship and a good family unit. More...
I highly recommend Cosford Dog Training. Completed puppy course and the bronze course with our Labrador Retriever. The trainer was very knowledgeable, patient and got results. If you are looking for dog training, look no further! Considering carrying on with the silver course More...
