I can't thank Helen enough. She is amazing. Our puppy is really benefiting from Helens expertise and calm nature. We have all learnt such a lot. She is worth every penny and more. I can highly recommend. Thank you Helen �

I recommended Helen to my step-daughter when she bought a new cocker spaniel puppy.

The puppy is now 2 years old and so calm and well-behaved. He walks beautifully on the lead and has superb recall.

Helen's training is first class.

Helen was able to puppy sit our 13 week old Schipperke puppy, Kina, while we were working away for 3 days. Helen met up with us beforehand to meet Kina and to learn about her sleeping, eating and training routine and was more than happy to maintain these during her puppy sit. Helen also ensured Kina got more comfortable to being handled and groomed too. At the end of the visit, Helen provided a summary of her service and observations about Kina which was very helpful. This is our first experience of using a puppy sitting service and we are very impressed and happy with Helen's caring approach and bespoke service. We would highly recommend her and will be using Social Paws services again - thank you Helen!

Helen has walked our dog Rusty for about a year now. Helen provides an excellent service and is friendly and flexible. Rusty has benefitted from Helen's loving expertise as he is a large, powerful dog, who originally came to us from an animal shelter aged 18 months with a few issues to work on. Rusty is very happy to have Helen as one of his human friends and is always excited about going for a walk with her.

Helen offers me great support as I work with a highly anxious and withdrawn cat I adopted from the shelter. He is so much braver and more trusting now. Although we are struggling with learning how to use the cat flap, Helen has great ideas for me to try, so I don't feel alone and can share my frustrations as well as his achievements.

Helen is awesome! Lola always loves a visit, walk, and cuddle with her. When Lola got ill while Helen was caring for her, Helen noticed straight away that something was wrong, promptly contacted us and got Lola to the vet. She gave us regular updates on what care Lola was receiving from the vet and how Lola was doing that evening and into the next day. She didn't leave Lola alone that night so that she could make sure she was getting better. I highly recommend Helen for any of your pet sitting needs!

Helen was excellent with our English bull terrier. Thanks for your advice last year.

Helen came to see Kacey who suffers Atypical reactive behaviour. Helen is very well qualified and has a complete empathy with dogs. The training techniques she showed me have been extremely helpful and it is obvious this works .... as I have already been able to draw Kacey's attention away from the worry of other dogs around her.

We wll also work on the other areas that need attention....

It is very important to be consistent in everything we do.... it is hard work having a reactive dog.... but also very rewarding... we will let you know how we do and look forward to seeing you soon.... thank you ... Anne and Kacey xx

I don't know Helen in person, I never used her services but I'm a pet professional that works closely with behaviour problems, I love her little notes, they show great knowledge and passion. If I were closer I would be Helens client for sure. Thank you for sharing your knowledge x

Absolutely amazing first behavioural training session with Helen today ... Fantastic explanations of what was actually happening and why my wonderful dog was turning into the 'Tasmanian devil' when encountering unknown dogs whilst on a walk... After showing me some training techniques and explaining it was gunna take patience and time Helen walked with us giving step by step help as we encountered situations... We have hope at last that our walks might someday be fun again... So looking forward to our supporting summary just to keep us on track and really looking forward to more of Helens expertise in the coming months ... Cant begin to tell you what a reassuring and positive experience meeting and learning from Helen has been ... I 100% recommend Social Paws and Helens gentle, professional approach to me and my Girl Maggie ...( she even walked with my boy so he wasnt left out)

Myself & my puppy Milo love working with Helen. Helen is really good at wh she does and always put people at ease. The way trains is very easy to follow when you are working alone or by her side. she also gives myself and my dog confidence & training with Helen is relaxed and fun For All. I also have a physical disability so I find tests harder everyday but Helen never treats me any different. Thank you Helen from both of us for helping Milo be the best companion and working dog that he can be for me look forward to next week Dannie ����

We called in Helen to help out with our 12 week old SharPei puppy. Within 24 hours of Helen meeting with us, we all noticed huge improvements with Lunas behaviour and we too were more disciplined. Helen was brilliant at reinforcing some things we knew by polishing our techniques but also giving us some new ideas and ways to distract bad behaviour! I couldn't recommend Helen high enough and we shall be definitely inviting Helen back when the next phase of learning starts.

Helen has helped our Westie, Jenny so much in the last few weeks. We've noticed a huge improvement in her behaviour (Jenny, not Helen) and by following Helen's easy to follow programme, we feel we're on course to get the long term outcomes we've been trying for. We met for 2 sessions where Helen miraculously got Jenny to behave in a sensible way and had her doing things we have never been able to. I feel much more confident about our future with Jenny, all thanks to Helen. Can't recommend highly enough!

After Mollie was attacked last xmas I called on Helen to try to understand if there is anything I could do in the future to lessen the chance of another attack happening. After a few sessions with Helen, I feel I have far more understanding of potential triggers and Mollies' body language and am working towards helping Mollie feel less anxious in these situations. We also had a group walk with a friend and were able to work on recall problems with amazing results!! Oh, and Mollie told me to say she loves the tube of cheese and the reintroduction of cooked sausages!!

Very educational posts and modern information. I enjoy learning from Helen and hearing her opinions on dog behaviour.

Much love from Canada.

Helen was so helpful with giving us ideas on how to encourage positive behaviour between our dog Dexter and babies/small children. With a baby on the way, we have been putting her methods into practise which we have found easy and effective to implement. Helen really knows her stuff and we wouldn't hesitate to return to her in the future - highly recommended! 😊

If only I lived in the UK!! So nice to see someone who truly understands dogs and strives to educate humans about making dogs’ lives better.

Helen has been great helping me understand my reactive dog. Still a way to go with him but we have made great progress in a few weeks.

Thank you for your educational posts. My son is keen on becoming an animal psychologist and finds your posts informative and interesting. He is so inspired by people like you who are so clearly passionate about animal wellbeing.

Helen has offered plenty of support for our rescue dog, without her Georgie would probably have been sent back.

Her posts on Facebook are always educational and you can tell that she only has the best interests for any animal she is involved with.
