We cannot recommend fun n’fur highly enough!!! What wonderful, knowlegdable, calm, fun professionals!!! They instantly had a great rapport with Otto and it was evident that he was keen to learn under their calm influence. We are working with fun n’ fur and 6 month rescue puppy, Otto, to help him to feel more comfortable and secure when he is left on his own. Frenchie has given us the training, technique and confidence to work on this with Otto and we saw progress instantly! We now have to put in the work to achieve the outcome we wish for, but we are confident we can do this! Thank you so much!!! Charlie, Laurence and Otto More...

I would definitely recommend Vic and Frenchy..they are very personable and knowledgeable, we took to both of them straight away. We are starting to work together with my 1 year old husky/GSD/Akita mix Mika, I have done basic training with her but we were hitting puppy 'teenager' issues...already she is improving, she learnt the initial training games in minutes...she learns very quickly...I needed direction to be able to train her effectively. She is very friendly and over excitable and they are helping me to play games to calm this down a bit. We get many admiring comments about her, we want her to be the dog everyone wants, with 'Fur N' Fun's help I think this is the future for Mika.. More...

Couldn’t recommend Frenchie and Victoria enough they are full of knowledge. Right from the consultation they came up with an action plan to best help me and my very anxious Springer. We had the first training session today and it was great fun and learnt so much, can’t wait to get applying all the training. They give you everything you need including everything you went through in a written format and continued support throughout the process! As soon as I got home we started applying some of the techniques and have already started seeing small improvements! Thank you so much, can’t wait to Keep working with you. More...

We recently had Victoria house sit for a week to look after our 4 dogs. This is the first time we have been away and left them with a pet sitter. This proved to be the best decision we made. Victoria was amazing with them and bonded with them so quickly. The dogs absolutely loved her and were so happy. She sent is pup dates every day to show how settled they were and trust me they were. It made our holiday perfect knowing the dogs were happy and at home. Victoria treated the house with the utmost respect and it was clean and tidy on our return. We had a late flight and Victoria had left milk and snacks for us on our return. She went above and beyond and nothing was to much trouble. I cannot recommend Victoria and Frenchie enough for the excellent and professional service but especially for making the dogs happy and safe. We’re already planning next years holiday. Thank you. Xx Million stars. More...

I really can’t recommend Fur n’ Fun enough-they are truly amazing! The initial consultation was very interesting and I learnt so much about our new furry friend that I hadn’t even considered before but the session I had yesterday was absolutely brilliant-Frenchy very patiently took me through how to work with Teddy myself and explained all the reasoning behind the techniques. I love the positive behaviour management and have already made a start myself, looking forward to continuing. Feel so much more confident and can’t thank you guys enough. More...

I've just got back from my first session with these guys and I've learnt a lot. They were incredibly patient and went at my pace. Above all, it was really chilled and relaxed. There was no pressure to get it wright first time and they explained everything as we went. Looking forward to putting it all into practice. I would recommend fur N fun in a heartbeat. Thanks for all your help so far More...

Not even had an “official” session and I feel like I’ve already learnt so much! Learning to understand behaviors and how to communicate rather than teaching your dog tricks. Totally what I wanted out of the session. I can’t wait to learn more!! Feeling super inspired!! More...

Couldn't ask for better. They came over and met my 3 boys and I instantly knew they would be in safe hands. I wouldn't have left them if I wasn't sure they would be looked after. Happy dogs when I returned. Communication was perfect and very organised. Will definitely book again. Thanks so much love Me, Bruiser, JoJo and Frankie xxx More...

Frenchy and Vic have been absoultly incredible for us and our dog. We had almost come to the end of our tether woth our over boisterous puppy American bulldog. They instantly made us realise she is a wonderful dog and gave us the tools we needed to better our relationship and instantly see a massive improvement in our tank of a puppy. I have overcome a lot of anxieties I had whilst out walking woth there great idea of learning the training techniques with another dog. I could not recommend these guys enough there understanding of dogs is incredible and they are lovely people. I am so grateful to have found fur n fun they truly are amazing. More...

We picked up our rescue puppy Monty just over 2 weeks ago, we both had lots of experience with older dogs and thought raising a puppy would be easy. ..right? A colleague advised me that puppy training for their dog was the best thing they could've done, so with a sceptical frame of mind I started searching for trainers. I came across Fur N' Fun through a comparison website for dog trainers (yes, such a thing exists) and they had by far the most registered customers and positive reviews. I was going to give them a call anyway, but they were proactive and called me once they knew I had researched them online. There was no pushy sales talk and it was a genuine interest in ourselves and Monty, Vic was so friendly and understanding, I wasn't sure what we wanted or needed but we arranged an initial consultation, and it was the best thing we could've done. Vic and Arnaud came to our home and we instantly connected, they were so friendly and likeable, and Monty was immediately mesmerised by them. After a lovely chat and introduction, we went for a walk and they taught us all about canine psychology and how we could make the walks an enjoyable bonding session rather than a mundane necessity. 2 hours flew by and we enjoyed it as much, if not more than Monty! we happily arranged a second session for the following week and we couldn't wait for it. The second session was incredibly rewarding, Monty was walking with so much more confidence, we felt more confident and in control, and we had a really enjoyable time learning games and exercises, how to socialise with other dogs, how to deal with pulling on the lead, how to get Monty to return to us, and so much more. Again, the time flew by and we were sad when the session ended. At the end, they genuinely felt like friends and I hope we stay in touch and they are able to continue to see Monty grow and develop. we have walked Monty since and it has been an absolute pleasure, we are lucky to have a pup as well behaved and engaging as Monty, but equally we were lucky to find such wonderful trainers. We have really bonded with Monty since his training and I would recommend them to anyone else who would like to have a better relationship with their pets. give them a call, you wont regret it.

We just got a puppy and we decided we wanted to do some basic training. I am so glad that we picked Fur n’ fun to help us do this. We felt so comfortable and at ease straight away. I found it so unbelievably helpful but also so interesting. They both made everything easy to understand and made it so easy for us to start using the techniques for training. I am now so excited to get out there and put them in to practice with our pup Monty, I think he loved them and much as we did! I can’t recommend them highly enough, the whole experience was a joy from start to finish, I didn’t want it to end. More...

Absolutely positive experience with Vic and Frenchy today at our consultation. My dog Ralph was immediately at ease with them both. They took time to listen about the issues we are having with Ralph and we have now booked sessions to both help Ralph and educate us on how to communicate with Ralph and how to walk our dog properly on a long line. I am so impressed at how knowledgeable and relaxed Vic and Frenchy are. I cannot wait until our next session. More...

We had a free consultation. Frenchy was amazing gave us some tips and refused to take our money because we could manage our issues ourselves. Not many honest people around that would so that these days. If we have any further issues I would 100% go back to him knowing how helpful and honest he is. More...

Wow wow wow. Amazing. On meeting both Vic and Frenchie myself and my husband were quite frankly amazed how our little Bella responded to them both, she magically turned into a very well behaved dog! We have taken on the advice so far and have seen huge improvements in Bella's behaviour and I am enjoying commiting more time to her. We have been telling all our friends about Frenchie "the dog whisperer". These guys clearly have a pure talent here and they have so far been very patient and kind towards us. Two very lovely people with a obvious caring nature and love towards animals. We are so pleased and looking forward to our future sessions. Thank you so much! More...

I would like to say a massive thank you to fur n fun who have spent the last 3 sessions giving me and my partner the confidence to continue training Murphy (our staffy x lab). By using their expertise and challenging us with other people's dogs we have built up our own confidence which is what our boy needed. I would highly recommend!! More...

My partner and I really enjoyed meeting Vic and Arnaud for our initial consultation on Sunday. They really opened our eyes to our Muphy's issues (Staffy x Labrador). Which are non existent ! He's a perfect boy and we as the owners need some training and guidance which can often be the case. They are both very professional and well-humoured and we're really look forward to our next session of training those darn humans! It was great to meet you both, would highly recommend. More...

Absolutely amazing, from our 1st consultation to Chester’s 1st training session with Frenchie and Victoria, within minutes of Chester meeting them they had already performed a miracle he was taking note of them and was eager to learn, very kind and patient and explain everything they are doing, Chester our 10 mth old cockapoo is like a completely different dog, we had a puppy who didn’t listen and did exactly as he pleased which wasn’t any enjoyment,he is a joy to now walk and his recall is amazing, looking forward to his next session, ty you are both amazing, would highly recommend.

Today we have had our consultation with Frenchie and Vic. Already we are feeling positive and excited to get starting with the training. They accompanied us in the pouring Rain to see how our big bear walks on the lead and interacts with other dogs. It was a real eye-opener, to learn about a completely different and extremely positive approach to dog training and behaviour. Our dog instantly loved both Vic and Frenchie, as they obviously love animals. Very professional and very reasonably priced, I am confident we will get fantastic results and our time together as a family will become even more fun filled! More...
