Using Your Voice As The Remote Control For Your Dog and Cat By Learning How To Communicate Clearly
Removing the ambiguity in your dogs understanding of what you want from them!
A language course for you and not only your dog but cat too.
Its a training experience for you which is interesting and fun!!
Paula showed me very useful techniques to control my 3 months old lab, including how to transition potty training from inside to outside, how to use body language especially for commands like sit or when my dog jumps on me. I also learned how to use the “Leave” command which was probably the most important one as my puppy seems to grab everything that she sees in front of her (typical puppy behavior!). Finally, I learned how to walk my dog on lead by making sure she walks next to me without stopping or pulling. Thank you for the great tips Paula, now time for me to apply them :) More...
Paula was amazing!
I recently got a dog which I later on found out that he was blind, Paula adapted her approach to suit my dog. She was patient and attentive and was a breathe of fresh air to be around.
Highly recommend Paula her, she tolled me with essential skills that has helped my relationship with my dog. More...
It has been a pleasure working with Paula. She was very patient, attentive and taught my puppy and I invaluable lessons. Paula is very helpful and knowledgeable and made the training process so much easier than I thought. You can really tell how much she loves her job. I would recommend Paula to anyone considering training their puppy/dog. Thank you Paula More...
Paula is professional, knowledgeable and clearly passionate about animals! We felt very confident as new dog owners knowing that we could contact Paula at any time if we had any questions or concerns. Paula's instructions were clear and thoughtful, her approach to training is kind, straightforward and shows a thorough understanding of dog psychology which we found really interesting. I would not hesitate to recommend or use Paula again...if we ever need to! Our dog is doing great thanks to Paula :) More...
Working with Paula has been a pleasure. She is very professional and calm. Our little Maltese, Lola, was fascinated by her. By following Paula’s advise we managed to keep Lola’s behaviour exemplar both indoor and outdoor. Thank you Paula!😉 More...
Having had dogs all my life I was feeling quite despairing regarding what lockdown had done to our already anxious pup however with Paula’s calm, clear, straightforward, advice and instruction we are seeing really positive results. I can’t recommend her more highly. Happy owner and happy dog More...
Paula has been brilliant with my 4 year old cross breed and training me about his reactivity and behavioural problems. Once she started to show me how to communicate with him, he listened more, reacted less and I'm now able to start the process of weaning him back off his lead (slowly but surely! ) She's been really encouraging, reassuring and great at answering any questions I've had. More...
I got my lovely Cocker Spaniel puppy Georgie during the hight of Covid-19 lockdown. Unfortunately no live puppy trainings took place, but I needed help.
I found Paula's DogWalkersN8 service on bark. She helped via Skype to form my understanding of my dog's needs and communication (Georgie is my first own dog). Even though we never had any live/real training, Paula swiftly helped and her training was very effective. Georgie was 'more or less' house-trained after a week and we established a great routine together. Paula understood my circumstances and adapted to my needs plus she was available and helpful via WhatsApp.
I would recommend her service and am very happy about the outcome, a very well behaved new member of our small family... : ) More...
Absolutely fantastic!! I managed to get my 10weeks old puppy to be fully potty trained as well as get him to obey orders using Paula’s tips and sessions! Highly recommend her.
My dog and I had a great experience with Paula.
We had two main goals, the first one was to help my 7-month-old rescue puppy to relate and get along with my two old cats. He is very energetic, for what he wanted to play with them all the time.
Paula taught me how to teach the dog on how to behave around the cats, and to the cats of how to get confident enough to circle around the house again
The second goal was to make my puppy walk on a loose lead since he was always pulling and trying to chase squirrels, foxes, birds, and dogs. She accomplished that thanks to a specific work with the dog and with me.
Paula helps you understand how your dogs feel and thinks, so you'll be able to handle him better, generating trust between each other. My relation with my dog went from being "friends" to become also his "protector" to make him want to follow my lead.
On a final note, Paula works towards objectives, for what she ensures that the goal is achieved and she will guide you through all the process, with both, presential and online consultation, depending on the need More...
Paula’s training technique is brilliant. She taught me a simple way to communicate with my dog. When we first started Coco was struggling with separation anxiety, was waking up in the middle of the night. After our training sessions Coco has become a more confident puppy. Paula’s tips are very practical, she makes sure that you go through it with her as many times as you need it until it becomes intuitive. I’d highly recommend Paula to any pet parent. More...
Paula is brilliant, I can not recommend her enough, she took our new rescue who has a lot of issues from a history of neglect and helped make her into the happy confident dog she is now. We all learnt so much and we are so grateful. Paula definitely goes way beyond what we paid for, checking in all the time, lending us equipment, giving continuous advice. We are really grateful xx More...
Absolutely loved working with Paula. We got two puppies (frenchies) and as you can imagine every day was very hard work, we were getting nowhere. With no prior knowledge on "how to have a dog" we stumbled upon DogWalkers online. Well Puala's training classes were absolutely mind-blowing. Packed with tips and tricks, ways to understand your dog and more. She helped us train our doggos and train ourselves to be better owners! I would suggest DogWalkers to anyone! More...
Simon and Emmanuel
Paula has been an incredible source of support for us in our first days with our puppy Angel.
She has been very flexible in supporting us via Skype during the COVID-19 lockdown. Her expertise shone through from our first interaction with her - massively reassuring to us as first-time dog-owners.
Perhaps the most important thing to emphasise is how far beyond the call of duty Paula has gone in supporting us - she's arranged numerous Skype calls (many at strange times e.g. Sunday evenings), responded almost immediately to our queries via WhatsApp, and even offered to meet in person for a free training session with Angel in the park once the lockdown is lifted. The degree of care she feels about doing a good job for the dogs and for their owners shines through.
Her style is generally quite direct, and sessions are fast-paced, but she's also been really good on the human front giving us encouragement at moments when we were doubting our own ability, and adapting her style to the way we learn.
Thank you Paula for helping us welcome Angel to our lives - we're so grateful, and we hope you're able to support many more newbie dog-owners. More...
We first contacted Paula when we’d picked our puppy up a week too early because of lockdown.
He was having trouble settling, being alone for any amount of time and with toilet training.
Every session with Paula was transformative and brought more calm and normality back to our home.
Within just a few sessions our puppy was able to toilet almost always outside, sit, wait and leave and he’s really happy when he’s in his own company now. More...
Elaine & Dom
We would highly recommend Paula! We chose the Puppy Training Package for our 10-week old puppy. Due to the lockdown, our sessions were done virtually with Paula’s dogs lending a helping hand for demos.
Paula’s sessions were really concise and we left each one feeling optimistic with a clear idea of what we were trying to achieve in the coming week.
The structure of the virtual sessions worked well whereby we came up with a list of questions or concerns we had and Paula went through the list with clear instruction for us building on exercises from the previous week/s. In fact, really, it was us and not the puppy that was getting trained and Paula was very understanding and patient.
Paula is a great trainer who obviously loves and understands dogs. More...
Paula has been very helpful with our female frenchie. At first I was shocked that she wouldn’t great our dog the first day as soon as she came in our home, as it was what people would usually do and what we’d expect as our frenchie is super friendly. But then I understood that Paula wasn’t here to flatter us about how cute our dog is but to tell us honestly everything we were doing wrong, starting by letting our dog greating everyone coming in which was in fact giving her anxiety by making her think that she should protect us at all time. During the 3 sessions, Paula told us frankly what had to change and Maggie, our frenchie was very responsive to the exercices, which were fun for both Maggie and us. We try keeping with the good work and are very thankful for all the tips we were given. Paula is very honest and has a great charisma with dogs, as Maggie was following her orders straight away. More...
I’m forever grateful for all the help Paula have been able to provide for me and my 3 dogs. One of them were suffering with quite difficult behavioural issues and anxiety and another one in need of general training.
Paula have provided excellent techniques for me to work with them and if I ever need help or have any questions she’s just a phone call / text away.
If it weren't for Paula I wouldn’t been able to keep one of my dogs but after her training techniques and directions we’re all living in a stress free and calm environment.
I would recommend Paula and her services to anyone having any type of issues with their dog or if you’re a new dog owner wanting to understand how your dog works - she’s fantastic!
Thank you so much Paula!! More...
Paula is truly amazing! Patient but firm, clear and smart - Paula taught us how to communicate with our lovely boy effectively and we can’t thank her enough :)
She is very kind and nice, she knows what she is doing when it comes to training dogs and as soon as she started visiting I already see progress with my dog.
We consulted Paula at dog walkers N8 for some behavioural issues with our year old rescue dog. Paula has turned it around for us. We we having difficulty walking her due to some fear issues. After a few sessions with Paula we started to see the difference and now a few months along and with a short stay at Paula’s she is becoming a different dog. Paula checked in with us even when we weren’t on a session and offered advice any hour of the day and extended it to our dog walker. I can’t recommend her enough. Having consulted a few trainers previously I found Paula’s method easy to follow and it made more sense than other ones I had tried. What is reassuring is Paula’s belief that she will turn the behaviour around and dogs can change. Her commitment and knowledge is second to non. More...
I had done some research on the bark site looking for a trainer for my puppy shepherd Theo. I had a few people contact me but after reading paula’s reviews I decided to go with her.
Paula was absolutely amazing with Theo her training provides results in a very short time. I was guided all the way and learnt how to deal with all different situations. Paula has given me allot of advice and has offered me to contact her anytime I need more advice/help.
Paula I can’t thank you enough for giving me the tools to raise Theo to be a good balanced dog around people and other dogs. I feel more confident now and will follow all the training and advice you have given.
I would recommend Paula to anyone who is looking for a trainer. I hope that one day if Theo needs further training that I can give him to Paula for board and train. Paula is a professional trainer with proven results.
Professional personal service which was delivered in easy to understand bite sized chunks.
Andrew & Abi
Paula is brilliant! Massively helped us get our dog, Nelson to behave better both at home and on walks. She really goes the extra mile to make sure you’re on the right path to make progress and using simple commands makes it easier for us and for Nelson to know what to do. Couldn’t recommend her enough.
Rachel Cecil Gurney
Paula was great from the start with her no nonsense approach to training Winston and in the first session she taught us all the important commands and gestures to get the dog to be more obedient. He stayed with Paula too whilst we were away and came back even better trained! More...
Great training for our pup ! We were so impressed how fast the results were there thanks to Paula’s tailored training !
We got in contact with Paula to help with our little Cocker Spaniel. We had two sessions with Paula, one for inside training and one session outside for leading pulling.
Paula used very simple but effective commands, even tweaking them when she noticed our dog wasn't as responsive to one particular command. With continuity and consistency from us we have seen such a difference in our dog.We can't thank Paula enough.
Paula also offers to help with any future issues we have, which really shows how much she cares about her clients!! More...
Paula is a very lovely lady. She goes the extra mile to help. She has helped training my chihuahua puppy and has given me so much support. She helps you whenever you need her. Thank you so much xx More...
We contacted Paula to give us a hand with our French bulldog Boris as he had been misbehaving and we were a bit desperate.
Since the first lesson, we saw an immediate change on our dog, she used very basic but effective commands, Paula really knows how to talk to dogs.
Paula will find a solution, no matter how difficult the situation looks. More...
Sent my puppy for one week board and train with Paula. She was amazing with Elvis and brought him back as a well rounded dog. Highly recommended!?
We can’t thank Paula enough for the work she’s done with our Lurcher puppy. He had a very nervous temperament and was howling constantly, day and night, and we didn’t know if we could cope. Paula not only gave us advice that really worked, but she also boarded our puppy for two weeks when we unexpectedly had to travel due to a family emergency. When we returned our puppy’s behaviour was markedly better and now we are able to really enjoy having him! Paula has an intuitive understanding of dogs and can read each dog’s individual temperament very well. We highly recommend her! More...
Luke and Sophie
Paula was great and the results have been really promising. Our little Frenchie had become a real handful and there were lots of behaviours that needed correcting, including aggression, toileting, being possessive and a whole host of other things.
She's come back a different dog; obedient and so much less anxious, it's been revolutionary for us.
The most important thing was that Paula met us at our level, we knew as owners we'd been making mistakes but were reluctant, and in all honesty a bit naive. Paula helped us so much without ever being judgemental or patronising - and she tolerated our millions of questions.
We've still got a way to go with our dog, but we are working from such a solid foundation now, thanks to the great work Paula has done. I can wholeheartedly recommend. More...
Our 3months old chow chow Puffy stayed with Paula for 10 days and we were very happy with the results. Puffy learned all of the basic commands and Paula gave us all of the instructions to carry on with the training. We would definitely recommend Paula and will certainly use her services in the future. More...
Paula was just brilliant! She spent long hours helping training our 3 dogs, travelling from far on several occasions. Her methods are logical, well explained and simple to implement. We had great results where other trainers' methods just didn't work. We had an enormous improvement within days and can now consider it to be a complete transformation. We continue to follow her advises to keep on improving our dogs behaviours. A highly recommended dog trainer and a lovely lady to meet! More...
DWN8 has helped us hugely with our 9-month old nervous lab who is naturally shy and fearful. The team walk her regularly and the intensive training by Paula has really helped her confidence and day-to-day behaviour. Paula has introduced us to positive techniques to manage our pup and build her confidence such as walking nicely on lead, not jumping up, managing her barking when anxious and importantly for London life, positive socialisation with other dogs. She’s now more confident and relaxed when out and at home she is less destructive and sleeps the night on her bed (before her stay with Paula we were using a night crate). The work is ongoing of course (for us and our pup). Overall we’re really pleased with the time and personal effort Paula has put in (and continues to put-in) to help our dog be the best she can be. More...
Fantastic no word's can discribe it I would recommend Paula to anyone who needs help with there Dog
Eddy and Campbell
Paula was a great trainer, she helped provided a few different methods for us to try with Wolfgang, as we had established some previous training techniques and were happy with the new ones Paula suggested. Wolfgang reacted very well to our new routine for him, and his behaviour has changed in regards to further understanding more commands and listening to us. Thank you! More...
Paula is a fantastic trainer. In only two training sessions I am now able to control my dog’s barking; jumping up at visitors;
begging for food - she is now a gorgeous, cute bundle of fun and best of all obedient
Paula is a lovely lady, totally in tune with dogs. More...
Paula is incredible in her ability of delivering near instant results! My puppy learned how to stop having accidents inside the house and how to walk straight in only one session! She is a truly remarkable trainer and would highly reccomend to anyone. More...
Our 5 year old Pomeranian stayed with Paula for 2 weeks while we were on holiday. Our dog learnt the words: Sit, Wait, Bed, Leave, Get down, Outside, Inside, Leave, Come, Shhh (be quiet! ) and Good girl. She also helped with walking on a lead and recall when faced with a distraction. Paula taught me how to embed these new behaviours with our dog at home and at the park. I’d highly recommend Paula as an excellent dog trainer who loves dogs. More...
When our rescue lurcher, Sam showed some worrying behaviour, Paula managed to find time at very short notice and went above and beyond to help us and Sam
Paula was amazing! She was extremely professional and I definitely learned a lot, as well as my puppy Elvis.
I have no hesitation in recommending Paula.
Thanks so much for the help!!!!
Paula was great with my dogs she was so confident in her methods and the dogs instantly responded to her. She has good knowledge and understanding of dogs and I have seen great improvements in my dogs behaviours. Family and friends are no longer scared of my dogs and the dogs are much more accepting and calm when people come into the home. More...
Good at what she dose saw a change straight away the down fall was arriving an hour late only telling me at the time she due to arrive for canelo first session brought two dogs in the house I felt this was a distraction for my puppy on his first session. He done well considering.
If I could give 10 stars, I would! I was absolutely blown away by Paula's session with us. I had been long-term boarding my friend's young spaniel, who I was unable to have in the same room as my cat for the six months that he lived with us.
An otherwise lovely dog, he would become highly excitable when he so much as heard the cat in the other room, and would bark aggressively. This meant that our poor cat was not getting the attention she deserved, and lived in a constant state of fear. The dog also had very extreme separation anxiety and alarm barking problems, so I was unable to leave him alone for any length of time without bothering the neighbours.
Paula came to visit us in the final few weeks of the dog's stay with us, and armed me with some powerful tools to make the end of his stay much easier for everybody in the household, and to teach my new puppy – who will be arriving in two weeks – appropriate behaviours around my cat.
She arrived in the evening, and stayed far longer than expected – until she saw tangible progress. That in and of itself was really impressive and displayed incredible commitment to the job...
We worked first on the separation anxiety/alarm barking, with a place command – "bed". We spent more than an hour enforcing that certain situations meant the dog was supposed to go to bed, and stay there. She then spent as long with my cat as she was interested in taking food from us, and at the end of the session, we brought the two behaviours together. There is still a long way for this dog to go, but knowing what I needed to do to enforce good behaviour made my life so much easier in the final few weeks. We were able to completely eliminate barking at the door/while I was in the other room, and he was much more relaxed if I left the flat. He would, without FAIL, go to bed if I told him to, and relax immediately. I was then able to expand the cat's living area beyond where we had separated the two animals. While I wouldn't have them in the same room, the spaniel could absolutely hear her and smell her without losing the plot, and my life was so much calmer from that point onwards.
I feel extremely well-prepared for my new puppy's arrival, and would absolutely not hesitate to recommend Paula's services or use them again. My friend, who was present for the session, has already asked for her number for when she brings her new dog home in 2020! Paula went above and beyond, and I can't thank her enough! Without a doubt, her services were the best money I've ever spent on my pets. More...
Paula gave me some really useful tips to help with my ‘slightly scared of strangers’ pup with ‘slightly aggressive behaviour’ towards them.
I have started to use some of them and change has been showing already.
I would definitely recommend her as the sessions are reasonable priced and you won’t be losing out. I guess it’s important to keep in mind that dog training is mostly training for dog owners that requires consistency and hard work. More...
Paula was great and was able to create immediate, positive changes in our overly energetic and stubborn Border Collie Toby. Toby responded immediately to Paula and started to behave, which gave us the confidence that he was not a lost cause! Though we still have a lot of work to do, we feel Paula has equipped us with all the tools we need (as well as her ongoing support between and after our sessions).
If you are looking for a trainer who really cares about helping you and is determined to get long term results, Paula is the trainer to go for! More...
Paula was wonderful with my 12 week old maltese. She was very calm but firm and Poppy picked up on sit, wait and bed in the 2 hours she was with her. Highly recommended
Paula is a very good trainer and takes her job very seriously. She started her work with my pup within minutes of me walking out the door. He's a tough cookie but in such a short time I have seen a big improvement and I am sure that with consistency I should be able to continue to apply what he has been taught during his time with Paula to continue to overcome his behavioural issues and keep him on the path of becoming a reformed, well rounded pup. Highly recommended. Thanks Paula. More...
My family very happy with the rezuls,after a week training his become well behaved dog.Many thanx
