Maxine was super friendly, down to earth and non-judgemental with our puppy american akita cross husky, who we were having issues with leaving for even short periods of time. She was very patient when the pup was jumping around excited that someone new was in the house. She went through different techniques and thoroughly explained them & that made it easy to know what steps we had to take once she had left. We were also having huge issues with crate training & Maxine was more than happy to help us. Within a couple of weeks of following the advice given, our pup improved massively! We still have a way to go but he is getting better and better each day & I honestly cannot thank & recommend Maxine enough! If I could give more than 5 stars, I would! More...

Maxine was really lovely with my dog Sunny. She has a positive praise approach. Max has helped improve Sunny's confidence and helped give me some ideas to continue with training for Sunny's wellbeing.

Well what can I say? Max at dogs tails was amazing with my young staffy Bella who at the time starting her training was only 12 weeks old. I did a lot of research to find a trainer and time after time dogs tails has been getting 5 star reviews, I bit the bullet and got in contact. From the first message I sent Max I felt she was the one to train Bella. Max had asked what I wanted and determined how many session were required. We booked in 5 session over a 7 week period (due to Xmas holidays) as I wanted obeisance and lead training and anything else I could think of. Any concern I would have i would drop max a little message and she would get back to me as soon as she could to help with any training trouble I was having. Max doesnโ€™t only train the dog, she also trains you on how to handle situations which you may come across. Max had also provided me details on potty and crate training even though this wasnโ€™t discussed at the initial stages. On the fourth session we had covered all of the training requirements. On the final session max asked what I wanted to cover and I had a few concern which max pointed me in the right directions. I can safely say I would recommend Max to anyone who has a new or existing fur baby she very approachable and no task seems difficult. Im still training Bella from Maxโ€™s training and itโ€™s going really wellโ€ฆ.Thank you max for training Bella and myself it has been really appreciated x More...

Working with Max has been fantastic. We needed help training our puppy, Otto, who was struggling with toilet training, separation anxiety, destructive behaviour and basic commands. After just 4 sessions we had a completely different dog! Max helped us to change Ottoโ€™s behaviour as well as our own, and we noticed a huge change in him. She was full of advice and hints and tips, and has really helped make a difference. More...

Just finished our last lesson today with Dog Tails.
Iโ€™ve got to say a massive thank you to Max for all her help over the the last 6 weeks.
My boxer is 6 months old and we just wanted her to be well behaved/sociable and be well mannered.

She has done so well and we are so pleased with her, we have learnt so much from Max, she is so knowledgeable and nothing is too much trouble, she always listened to any concerns and gave sound advice. We have a very well behaved clever little girl now and we have Max to thank for that.

Lyla (and me) has really enjoyed her lessons with such a fab trainer.
Would definitely recommend Dog Tails.

Thank you for all your help.

Max is amazing! She helped us train our boy Merlin to be calm with visitors in the home. Max responded quickly to my initial contact and booked us in as soon as she could. We were incredibly impressed with Merlins first session and his response to the guidance we were given. Max provided us with a write up of our session so we could continue to work on the task at hand. What can I say! Merlin has flourished! Thank you for all your help we are very grateful. More...

She helped my dog gain confidence, Dottie was a lock down puppy, it took time and patience for Dottie to come out of her shyness. Max not only helped Dottie she helped me to, so l can continue with her progress. Dottie likes to learn, her confidence is getting better.

I never had a dog before, and had no idea on training methods. I got in touch with Max at Dog Tails, she was local to me and had very good reviews. I booked 8 lessons with Max for my cavapoo puppy named Poppy. Max came to the house to do training and have a chat with me, which made me very comfortable. To say Max is brilliant at what she does is an understatement, she is excellent and i would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs a dog trainer. By the 6th lesson Poppy had done all the training that Max had in mind for her, so for the last 2 lessons she taught Poppy how to climb stairs and to get into the car by herself. If i could rate more stars i would. More...

We were able to learn the basics in the sessions and then practice on our own, with emailed homework - clear, easy to understand instructions. Everything is tailored to what you want, just ask!

It was great working with Max training my dog who is very professional, friendly, explaining every stage, full of helpful information and my dog loved her.
During the training it was challenging for us all but after the six sessions we now have an obedient dog and reached all the goals we set out to achieve prior to starting the training.
I would fully recommend Max - Dog Tails and felt it was very good value for money.
Thanks Max.

We wanted guidance in recall mainly and working with Max we have achieved this he is now walking off his lead and listening and following our commands all which we learnt from Max . We cannot thank her enough a lovely person who is very good at her job . I will not hesitate to recommend as she is absolutely first class . More...

Percy can be a handful when out on walks. Barked and lunged at everything that moved, including vehicles.
Max was recommended to me by a friend and Iโ€™m glad I booked with her.
Percyโ€™s behaviour has improved tremendously and I now feel comfortable, in a busy park environment.

Max is a lovely lady very easy to get on with and she was great with my dog roxy the rottweiler, she trained roxy to sit and wait down and stay and when visitors come she helped us with keeping roxy calm and not jumping up and knocking people down and also walking her calmly on the lead and recall in the park all of which we are putting into practice daily. Max is definitely someone I would recommend people to I already gave max's number to a lady in the park by me who knew we was having training so if your after someone good then this is your lady very genuine lovely person again Max thank you so much More...

We booked 6 sessions of puppy training for our Springerdoodle with Max and would highly recommend! Max is down to earth, friendly, knowledgeable and our puppy loved his sessions. Max offers advice and answers questions between sessions and we received a truly fantastic service. We all learnt and gained so much. Max's techniques were really effective and we saw a difference after just one session. We will be booking future sessions and are really grateful for everything we have been taught. Thank you!

I could not recommend Max highly enough. She is so supportive and the techniques she has showed us have made our dog a lot calmer and a lot happier to walk on the lead. She worked with us to show us how to communicate effectively with our dog and as a result his behaviour has changed for the better. In between sessions she sent clear videos to remind us and checked in to see how we were getting on. Benji absolutely adored her and we are all much happier because of her help! More...

We have a very anxious french bulldog. He hadnt been socialisรจd by his previous family so he doesnt like people and other dogs. With Max's help and advice Mikey is on the right path. She is calm and knowledgeable and with her by our side guiding us we know Mikey will be strutting his stuff sometime in the future. Its great to have someone by your side to correct or tweak what you are doing or just to say keep going your doing things right. Always on hand to answer a question or 7! Thankyou Max... without you i think we would have given up by now! More...

We cannot recommend Max enough. She has made walking out dog Sam much more enjoyable. He started off as a reactive dog who wouldnโ€™t walk past a dog without losing his shit and being fixated on said dog until out of eye sight. We are now at the point where we can walk Sam round a busy park full of dogs without reactions. We are still practicing and will continue to use Max to make sure we donโ€™t get out of the good habits so hopefully we can get to the point where Sam will walk in close proximity of other dogs without reactions. Plus Sam absolutely loves seeing Max for a fuss ๐Ÿ˜Š More...
