Our dogs Lady and Shadow stayed with Paul for 2 months. We have done a lot of work with Shadow for fear aggression which developed after his stay in a highly reputable boarding kennels several years ago and were very apprehensive about where he boarded. Lady as a collie cross requires a lot of exercise. No need to worry. Both dogs returned absolutely shattered and Shadow has gained even more confidence. They are also much more responsive to commands. We would highly recommend Mere Brow Gundogs and we will only be asking Paul to board our dogs in the future.

I can't thank Paul enough, he worked wonders with my one year old German Shepherd. He's more obedient and much easier to walk. Paul trained me more than my dog! As a result my dog is much calmer. Well worth the money and I will be taking him back at some point for further training. Friendly, welcoming and professional and my dog liked him straight away. Thank you so much.

Wonderful people with a broad range of expertise with different breeds and challenges who are still willing to listen and remain open to new ideas. Always a warm personal welcome with plenty of encouragement whatever the challenge.

Amazing results. Couldn't get anywhere near other dogs with one of my dosgs. There was a significant change after only one session. After fourth meeting my dog was completely different character. Relaxed, well behaved, hapier. Highly recomend the training and behavioural services MereBrow Gun Dogs offer.

I have been with these guys now for around 4 months training my cocker spaniel. Paul has a great approach and always finds the best technique to teach each specific dog. Amazing people that produce amazing result. I think I like the training more than my dog, its great fun. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Paul is an excellent trainer. He is firm but fair and my dog has really responded well to his methods. I think all breeds would benefit and I will not be using my dog for hunting, he is a family pet. Would highly recommend.

Paul was recommended by a friend to help us with our wayward Vizsla / GSP cross as she was a serial absconder. We’d tried with three other reputable and recommended trainers but none of them could get reliable recall. Within six weeks (one hour 1:1 a week, so 6 hours total) we had the dog we always dreamed of. She comes back EVERY time, instantly, she stops reliably on the whistle, and heels perfectly off the lead. I really can’t recommend Paul at Mere Brow highly enough - since he’s trained our dog, we’ve sent several more people to him and they’ve all had great results.

I started puppy classes with Paul and Laura when Poppy was 12 weeks old. In 9 weeks I have a dog that recalls to a whistle and her name, she sits and doesn’t move until told, she walks to heel and even comes back when other dogs or distractions are around her.
I soon discovered it’s not just about training Poppy, Paul is training me with the right commands and techniques to get the best from my dog. We love our classes �

I recently had a 1 yr old springer given to me by a friend, he didnt have much in the way of training and was pretty ignorant and unruly so i got in touch with paul booked us both in for 1 on 1 training which was a massive eye opener for me!!! 1st lesson went really well so we have had regular lessons i think 4 lessons so far in the 3 weeks iv had Ted and the difference is in him is unbelievable. I would highly recommend anyone to get in touch with paul he is down do earth very informative, detailed and methodical in everything he says and does with your dog no matter how far along you are with your training!!! I look forward to every lesson
Cheers paul
