Took the time to get to know our dog and what approach would work best for her. And it has worked, our anxious rescue pup is now boldly walking on the street! We’ve been telling everyone about Landela Dogs.

One of our dogs has an extremely high prey drive and after chasing a few too many squirrels, foxes and cats and the occasional horse, we decided enough was enough.

Thuli visited our home and got to know our dogs and our issues. We were impressed with her insight and communication.

She took us all out for a walk, introduced us to a long leash, and used treats and verbal and physical cues to manage his stimulation levels and direct his behaviour.

The effect was immediate - even during that first walk, he was noticeably calmer and more attentive to us.

He's still not perfect, but walkies are noticeably more enjoyable now.

It felt like hiring Thuli was a relatively big outlay but overall it was a great investment, and we've all learnt a lot! Thanks Thuli!

It's was so helpful to have all aspects of his behaviour and ways to change his behaviour explained so clearly. We are already seeing really positive changes in his behaviour, so I really am very grateful for your visit and all your help and advice!

After moving from a quiet country neighbourhood to central London, my 4 year old Yorkie became very aggressive whenever we encountered another dog on the street. This was happening all the time as London is filled with dogs and their owners. Unfortunately, once he started barking, I wasn't able to stop him and it would cause quite a scene.. Thuli was fantastic with him. In our first session, she was able to get him to focus on her instead of the other dogs which eliminated the barking. She was able to show me several techniques to use (depending upon the situation) to change his focus and get him comfortable passing by other dogs.
She has a wonderful way with dogs. Her methods are very positive, gentle and compassionate but at the same time she demonstrates that she is in control not the dog. We have continued to work on socializing my dog in parks and gardens and he is becoming more and more comfortable with his peers. She is an amazing trainer for dog and owner.

Our family dog Roxy has had a plethora of anxiety-related issues, as well as believing she's higher up in the 'pack' than she is. We all knew that in order to help Roxy we would have to work together to alter our own behaviour, as five people trying their own tactics was nothing short of confusing for her. However we felt a bit lost and confused about what would be beneficial or detrimental, so we reached out to Kate at Landela Dogs.

Kate spent time observing Roxy in both the home environment and on a walk. She assessed how we interact with Roxy and then showed us a number of examples in various scenarios (e.g. barking when the doorbell rings, jumping on the sofa, addressing her need to be the centre of attention, then taking her out on a walk to address pulling on the lead and interacting with other dogs - to name but a few!) of how to manage and help to lessen her erratic behaviour. An instant improvement was visible after only a few hours with us. We were all pleasantly surprised! Kate has a real gift and her incredible knowledge of dog behaviour meant that she was even able to address Roxy's more bizarre issues - such as her fixation with door handles and light fixtures.

After spending a number of hours with us, Kate then sent through a really detailed report of her observations and methods to help us with Roxy. These were clearly tailored to Roxy's specific issues, as well as her breed (various games for Collies were recommended and have been a great success), as well as highlighting where each of us individually could improve our behaviour and help with commands when we're with Roxy.

We have implemented the new schedule which has had excellent results. We now have a much calmer, less anxious Collie and a more relaxed and happy home environment. The personal touch and tailored response from Kate definitely made a significant difference.

I'm really looking forward to the follow up session with Kate. Rome wasn't built in a day and I know that there are still

Thuli came to us voluntarily for 2 weeks to help with our street dog neutering programme in Dryanovo, Bulgaria. Street dogs are often scared of people and new experiences so catching them is a major issue. The next problem is some dogs cannot return to the streets due to illnesses or other problems.
Thuli has been incredibly professional and helpful. The first day we went out and caught a mother and two 6 month old puppies. They had fear aggression and one of the puppies did bite us. Within 3 days she had gained their full trust and had them all walking on leads. After a year of working on our neutering programme we have never made progress as quick as this! Thuli has also worked with 5 other frightened puppies, again gaining their trust and lead training them.
Overall Thuli has been amazing and we wish we could keep her forever! Her enthusiasm, practical support and obvious love for dogs is remarkable.

Thuli and Willow are such a great team. The perfect combination of expertise and cool unruffled calm. I'd recommend them every time.

We received help from the lovely Thuli a few years ago after we had had no luck with numerous trainers.
Thuli was fantastic! Her super friendly and kind manor (with us and our dog) and her confidence, knowledge and experience was so reassuring.
Thuli is our one and only when it comes to looking after our dog
When we go away also. My husband and I fully recommend her and all her services.

We asked Kate at Landela Dogs for advice when we began our search for a rescue dog that would fit into our family. She was incredibly intuitive and understood both what were looking for and what the different dogs would require from us. It was so reassuring to have that experience and guidance. I would recommend Landela Dogs whenever looking for a new dog or when a new dog moves into your home.

Thuli has a remarkable way with dogs - and she's pretty brilliant with humans too! Our young retriever can be quite difficult - she can be anxious and aggressive. But Thuli's advice has really helped. We have learnt so much - and our dog absolutely loves her. Thanks Thuli. We feel really lucky to have found you.

Thuli has helped us so much with our retriever's behaviour - Dixie took to her immediately and Thuli's advice about handling her aggression and her behaviour in general is sensible, practical and efffective. We feel so lucky to have found her and we have learnt so much from her. Thanks, Thuli!

I've seen Thuli at work with several dogs since I used to live near her and I have been impressed with the way she controls each situation . You know how cats can always sense the one person in the room who's not a cat person? Well with Thuli it's the opposite, the dogs and cats know that she is the most understanding human in the room. If you want a better behaved dog, she's your woman.

Very impressed with Thuli's way with dogs. She taught a dominant, aggressive young male Husky-cross how to live peacefully alongside a Labrador bitch and a male cat; and how to interact with unknown dogs out on walks. She improved his recall; got him used to strangers coming into the house. I thoroughly recommend Landela Dogs.
Her calm Labrador Willow is a great side-kick.

Landela dogs does some amazing work not only did they help to get over my unrational fear of dogs but ive also never seen a group of dogs who behave as well or are as happy.

What do you love most about your job?

Dogs have always been a part of my life, their companionship and loyalty is unrivalled. I love meeting new people and helping them get the most out of their relationship with their dogs.

What inspired you to start your own business?

When I started helping friends and friends of friends with their unruly pooches, they kept saying 'you should charge for this!' So I thought, why not? I spent time and money on training courses and literature and tools and everything else to be as professional and skilled as I could and started Landela Dogs.

Why should our clients choose you?

I pride myself on clarity and understanding. I often come to people who say 'wow, our first trainer told us to do that but we never understood why, so we didn't realise why it was important.' Communication is the key to everything I do. From my conversations with you, to your commands to your dog, to what your dog is actually trying to communicate to you. Once we're all speaking the same language, everything is easier!
