I cannot thank Karen enough for her fantastic puppy training and her endless support that she has provided me with over the last few months. We couldn't have managed without you. Not only did we have one to one training sessions but reluctantly because of lockdown we experienced virtual training. I say reluctantly as I was not convinced this would be of any benefit. I couldn't have been more wrong. I found these sessions equally if not more beneficial. I was able to focus without any distractions. I have definitely been converted. I would like again to thank Karen for not only her training but also for her ongoing telephone advice that she has given us whenever we have needed it. As a result of Karen's commitment we have a lovely cockapoo Puppy Paddy and together we are building each day on the training that has been put into place. Thanks again Karen from Paddy and the humans. I would 100% recommend your services. More...

5 stars- the only dog trainers we’ll ever use! Loved our puppy classes with Blue Dog! They’ve helped us with our past dog doing home visits and they made such an amazing difference with our anxious rescue.

Murphy loved the ‘doggy mixtures’. He hurt his paw the week after and needed stitches, he wasn’t allowed to walk far so we tired him out with the tricks he learnt with blue dog, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their training workshops!

We have just completed doggy mixtures class...what can I say!!! It’s AMAZING, our pug puppy Luna is a dog that would play from the moment she wakes until she falls flat out at bed so I’m always looking for new adventures to keep her entertained. Was recommended blue dog canine services and it did not disappoint, you can see the love both Karen and Phil has for dogs but not only that they have a great way to teach both you and your doggy new tricks, agility training and to get the best out of the course. Only downside was that we didn’t want the course to end it was so much fun . Luckily they have many other courses available and already booked up for Lunas next adventure at their dog detective level 1 scent training course . Thank you blue dog canine service More...

We would highly recommend Blue Dog training to any new puppy owner. Our boy was quite shy around other dogs, but by the end of his first course he had grown in confidence so much. The atmosphere is controlled but fun which helped our pup not get too overwhelmed. Really fun sessions which lay the foundations for a great bond and a happy healthy dog. We can wait to get going on our next course with Karen and Phil! More...

I had 3 1 to 1 sessions with Karen for my boy Mac. He’s a 1 1/2 years old Rottweiler. I explained to Karen that I wanted him to walk better on the leash without pulling and to come back when called when off leash. And it worked! Best £75 I have ever spent. I will be booking more sessions with Karen in the near future. More...

We’ve just completed the Pawfect Puppy foundation and Cooper really enjoyed it! A lovely relaxed atmosphere where the pups (and hoomans) can learn and socialise with every care taken to not overwhelm the more nervous pupsters. Karen and Phil run a fantastic selection of courses - both formal training and some just more fun - something for every hound. I can’t wait to try some of the other courses with Cooper and our other dog. Doggy detectives is next on my list... More...

Poppy was late starter because my wife and I struggled to find a trainer that had classes that fit the times we could do so the range of times was great. We found the follow ups emails after the session are great outlining the points covered in the session are a great way to keep up training and keeping it consistent. The great thing about Karen and Phil is their approach to training is not a one size fits all. They are very understanding that all dog are different even if they are the same breed this comes across very clearly having so much patience input and enthusiasm for the doggles and explaining what works for one might not work for the next but taking small steps to build behaviours and understand behaviours works. The principles are easy to follow very relaxed and not over complicated and most importantly fun. (Egg and spoon races to teach loose lead walking) Poppy at the time was 8 months old and started with bronze training Karens methods are fun and easy to follow and replicate at home so we got the basics and moved on to silver. After Silver it was clear Poppy was never going to always do as she was told but that’s border terriers for you. During the silver sessions she loved to sniff. rarely paying attention to what was going on and just having a good old nose around. Karen suggested we do scent work together and Poppy loves it she engaged in what’s going (dare I say she is more obedient in these classes) and has moved on so quickly. She is about to start level 2 scent work. For this I could not thank her more and we look forward to “sniffs school” on a Sunday. More...

I’ve been to a few different classes with my young Border Collie, Poppy, and everyone has been worthwhile and good value. Karen and Phil are great, very helpful, love the dogs and work hard to make sure everyone gets what they need from the class. Recently took part in the Collie Collective where wee Poppy thoroughly enjoyed herself with Collie focussed activity. She attracted the attention of a few of one or two of the male dogs too but I guess they’re not made of wood!I really recommend Blue Dog to all. They’ve been great for us! More...
