We did the 6 puppy lessons for Rory which we found so helpful! I’ve never had a dog before so I was new to the basics. Rory did really well- saw lots of improvement each time we went. Claire is really helpful, we still stay in touch if I need any advice and for sure I’ll be booking more lessons! Thank you! ☺️ More...
Rated highly for: Responsiveness, Punctuality, Quality, ValueMy dog has high energy and anxiety but Claire has given me the tools and knowhow to deal with it all. Highly recommended!
We absolutely love the classes and so does Molly - good fun but also learning lots

Claire is very understanding and caring and she has really helped me and my dog. I would highly recommend Claire to anyone that needs some help with their dog’s behaviour because she takes the time to really understand your situation before advising and helping with training. Claire is very kind and I really want to thank her for all her help with Coco (bean). More...
I have used claire for one to one training and she has done a fantastic job and given me invaluable information and the back up emails and training plan have been great to look back on. highly recommend x
We were at our wits end when our Jack/Chi became aggressive. Claire's way of changing her behaviour made so much sense. It's not an overnight fix but we are seeing so much progress. I thoroughly recommend her.
Had a very anxious dog that wouldn't go on a walk for fear of different everyday noises. Claire gave us lots of tips and advice and we can now take him for pleasurable walks. We are very happy dog owners thanks to Claire at pet Poppins. More...
just finished 3 one to one sessions with Claire ,max is a completely different dog a lot better on the lead ,calmer when people come in the house , not has nervous with traffic and dogs he doesn't know, I would highly recommend pet poppins.
Clair is well spoken with clear instructions and information. She will take time to speak with each owner if they are struggling or their fur ball is not quite understanding what you want them to do. Our 6 month old cockapoo had trouble concentrating and Clair was quick to help and guide us. Our first of 6 lessons was very good and Benji really enjoyed himself. More...
Hi Joanne It’s was lovely to meet you, Jessica and Benji today. Thanks for the lovely review. See you next week. Any issues before then get in touch. Cheers Claire
Fab trainer. You are a lucky begger if you live nearby!
We used Claire Pet Poppins for our very nervous rescue puppy’s dog training and it was the best decision we could have made. Claire is amazing and goes above and beyond to help and guide, I have learnt an enormous amount, never felt judged as she always made us feel at ease and it’s obvious how much she adores the dogs (it’s reciprocated btw if our boy ever sees Claire he whimpers to go & say hello lol).Claire made training fun for ‘parents’ and dog alike and we truly believe we have the awesome dog we have because of Claire and her training. Highly recommended. More...
Claire was brilliant with my two greyhounds Angel and Oscar. She tailored their walks for me due their age and had a bit off fussing time as well. Very recommended!
Would highly recommend Claire. Our two cats were well looked after and it was nice to see a picture of them on Facebook. Thanks again Claire!
Great service, our cats were so happy to stay home rather than go to a cattery. We used to collect them from the cattery and they would be grumpy for 2 or 3 days. Claire is fab, highly recommended
We had Chester's first puppy training class & we both really enjoyed it. Very professionally run & looking fwd to next week now, thanks Claire�
Claire is brilliant with my patterdale Martha, regularly posting pictures on Facebook of the adventures they have is great! Patterdales are not always the easiest of dogs and she has improved lots since Claire has been walking her. More...
We highly recommend Claire's professional service and the reassurance that Alfie & Cooper were being looked after in their home rather than a cattery. Great to receive the updates from Claire and to see the photos. Fantastic service! Jan Flynn More...
Would highly recommend Claire, my dog barney is always shattered from his walks when I come home (which is what i need!! ) and is getting less timid around other dogs since being walked by Claire! Thank you :) More...
Claire was brilliant with my three Labradors, came back from holiday and they looked a picture of health considering Belle is very nervous but took to Claire even went walking considering Belle is very particular who walks her. Can't thank her enough and will certainly leave my dogs with her again. Have not left the dogs for ages but are certainly booking again now. More...
Excellent class i would highly recommend. You get homework sheets each week so you can continue what was learned in class at home. Claires knowledge and help is invaluable. Thank you so much petpoppins, from Claire & Boo :) x More...
Dougal had his first day at school today with Claire and brushed up on his sit and down positions, he started to learn focussing on us with all the glorious distractions of other dogs and people around. Claire was very knowledgeable and patient and gentle with our Dougal, a real hit.. Dougal can't wait till next week!! ��� Anyone thinking of dog classes, don't hesitate, I highly recommend her and her professional approach, knowledge and ethics �� More...
This was the photo that greeted us on our return from holiday - what a wonderful image:) Never used Pet Poppins or a cat sitter before and cannot praise Claire enough - if Jasper's face is anything to go by, he looks absolutely content. So glad we got in before she's rich and famous and we can't afford her anymore. Thank you Claire for a 5* service. Fantastic for our cats as Mollie is SOOOO highly strung and she was so calm when we got back. I'll be using you again and recommending you to EVERYONE! Fantastic Job (Jasper said so) More...

I couldn't reccommend pet poppins enough. Claire is a great dog walker and is very flexiable and understanding when it came to our busy schedule.
You can tell she loves animals and has a great relationship with our dogs. We where very happy to leave the dogs in Claire's company as we know they love being out and about with her and all the other dogs.
We will definately continue using Claire in the future and would reccomend her to anyone :) More...
Star and I have just had our first meeting and training class and Star did brilliant sooooooooo proud of him. I love the way in which Claire teaches and approaches things, she is down to earth, patient, has great ideas how to do things and for sure knows her stuff. We are super excited for our next class and I highly recommend her. ��❄��❄��. More...
Claire is very professional, caring and her advice and knowledge is invaluable. My puppy was struggling to focus and understand my commands but with Claire's training my puppy (and Myself) we now have excellent communication in basics so we can achieve our goal in furthering our training. Claire is best trainer by far ive met in my 20 years of working with dogs. Highly recommend her to everyone who owns a dog�. Xx More...
Meeko has made brilliant progress since meeting Claire and using her training methods. He's an extremely reactive/nervous dog, who started to become aggressive, using Claire's training, we have now gone a week with no incidents.
I know it doesn't sound much to some people, but it's a giant victory to us, after going so long with having at least 3 in week.
I keep Claire posted on Meeko's progress, and I know I can cotact her with any questions or if need be book another appointment.
I would definitely recommend anyone to her, whether they have a puppy or a problem dog, she's brilliant! More...
Can’t recommend this lady enough she is superb and has given us really good training for our puppy x
Lovely lady seamed to really know a lot about dogs, can’t wait to get started once I get my training plan, I had so much info in that 1 hour I can only remember bits. But well worth it I can’t wait to see the results of her help in a few weeks/months with my dogs � x More...
Can't thank Claire enough for helping us with our new rescue puppy Billy and our older girl Evie to settle with each other. We were a little unsure of how to do things for the best but with Claire's help and guidance we have two happy pooches and two even happier and more confident owners. Can't recommend highly enough. Thank you. More...
We have just completed the puppy training course with Claire and we have thoroughly enjoyed it. We were lucky to have a really intimate group which I’m sure made it an even better experience - but we were taken through all the basics, chatted through real life scenarios and were able to discuss individual needs too. We’ve got lots of homework and practice to be getting on with to make sure our puppy doesn’t forget what he’s learned! Claire also does some puppy visits for us too and is fantastic with last minute requests! Really recommend and we’re looking forward to joining the new class in a couple of months when we’ve mastered what we’ve learnt! More...
Brilliant methods of training without force. Claire is exceptional at explaining any problems your having with your dog and putting you at ease. Loved puppy class and were now doing 2nd class which is great for socialising your dog and getting my boisterous puppy to calm down. I would definitely recommend Claire at Pet Poppins for puppy training or any other dog behaviours as I know she does 1 to 1 training . More...
Fab trainer, really knowledgeable and encouraging highly recommended

Fabulous speedy reply with good information and friendly manner.. Highly recommended!
Thank you for the lovely review. I have only just seen this. I hope you are well. Thanks Claire
Claire looked after my two rabbits whilst I was away at a family wedding. I knew their care needs & particularly Florence's glaucoma were in safe hands and loved the updates!
From my initial contact with Claire at Pet Poppins I knew that my cat Jazzy was going to be well looked after whilst we were away, which was very comforting. Claire came round to do a consultation beforehand, and was very thorough asking questions about Jazzy, and getting a feel for his temperament and practical side of things. Whilst we were were away Claire texted me daily with updates on how Jazzy was.I have to say Jazzy seemed very chilled out when we returned, and I was very pleased with the service Claire, Pet Poppins provided.I will definitely be using her again - excellent value for money, and total piece of mind for me :-)Thanks Claire :-) More...
We would not think of using anybody else except Claire to care for our two cats Merlin and Simba, and our dog Roxy, for both holidays and everyday care. Whenever we have needed her, Claire is always only a phone call away and she has helped us out in times of need, even at short notice.We can always be safe in the knowledge that our pets will get the best care from Claire as she will treat them as if they were her own, and we know that we will come home to happy, contended pets.We would be happily recommend Pet Poppins to anyone who needs a friendly, reliable pet care service .

We asked Claire to look after our two cats last year when we went on holiday to Egypt. It was the first time we left the cats for more than a weekend so we were anxious to find the right person for the job. From the moment we met Claire were instantly reassured by her warm, friendly and caring personality. For no extra charge she came to meet us and the cats to discuss their individual needs and also offered to water the plants! During our holiday it was nice to get regular messages reassuring us that the cats were ok. As an extra bonus it was great to know that our flat was kept a close eye on while we were away.We will definitely use Claire for our cat sitting in the future.As any pet owner will appreciate, knowing you can rely on someone to care for your pet to your standard while you are away is priceless!
