Debra and her team are without doubt the most dedicated, professional and delightful dog trainers that I have ever used. As a professional breeder and vet, I come across many businesses like Debra’s but can honestly say hers is a class apart. She is well qualified, pragmatic,’personable and extremely competitively priced. Thoroughly recommended.

Debra is brilliant with the dogs and helped to calm down my giddy boxer. He is so much easier to control now. Best thing I did was bringing him to Debra

Debra and Charlotte were amazing. We've just finished the puppy classes today and my miniature schnauzer absolutely loved it. He was so shy and wouldn't enter the room on week 1 but week 6 he was running in to see his new pals! I cant praise the training school enough! Great work ladies � xx

Over the last five months we have taken Harry to sessions each week with Deb. We have progressed well and Harry has over come many of his training issues. Deb has helped us to be more confident and comfortable when training with Harry and this has really made a difference to our life with him. Can't recommend Deb and Rixton Dog School enough. Thank you! x

Exceptional dog training school I have just completed the puppy foundation course with my Staffordshire bull terrier Debra the trainer was very professional and even taking the time to help me iron out behaviours outside of the course after class. Unlike other dog training schools I was welcomed at Rixton dog school even though I have a bull breed. I would highly recommend this school to anyone and have already booked on to do the kennel club bronze award.

Both Mishka and I have thoroughly enjoyed the foundation puppy class and are so pleased with the results we have achieved with the help of the wonderful trainers �will be coming back for progression classes and cannot wait!

Review of Rixton Dog School by Alan Chess

I have taken my German Shepherd puppy to the training classes now for six weeks
I cannot speak to highly of this lady
At first I thought I knew about being a dog owner
With this lady's help I now understand how my beloved dog thinks and how I should act .
I will admit at first I found it hard but as they say
Practice makes perfect
If you have a pup with a problem
Or a dog that says no
Please give this lady a try
My arms are now back in their sockets
And my dog walks with my
If this lady charged five times more it would still be worth every penny

Thank you

Alan Chester and Tia

I can't praise Debra highly enough for her excellent classes, support and reassuring comments on entering the world of a puppy Mum! Ted and I loved the puppy foundation course and are looking forward to starting progression classes after the summer. The training has been great for both Ted and our family and it is great to see him developing day by day. In addition to all this Debra's sense of humour made learning all the more fun and it's fair to say Ted has experienced his first childhood crush ��

Fabulous training school, Debra is amazing full of great idea and different ways to help you and your dog learn.
I took my dog to her as she became scared off other dogs and after doing 1:1 then on to bronze, silver and gold classes sparkle has now found the confidence to play with other dog as well as lots more tricks and manners.
Thank you Debra your a star

Layla came on a treat attending puppy school , unlike some trainers I have come across the trainers here totally understand that all dogs can have off days etc , really friendly and sociable , considering the next class .

Review of Rixton Dog School by Kelly Thompson

I can’t recommend Debra highly enough. My boy has completed the puppy foundation course and is now working towards his Bronze award. Debra has a fantastic understanding of dogs and the differences in behaviour between breeds. She studies your dog carefully and will adjust training practices and give tips for what your dog will best respond to. I thought I had a good understanding of dog behaviour but I have learned so much in her classes. My Bowie absolutely adores her and as far as I’m concerned you can always trust a dogs judgement.
