Met Selina yesterday for a 1:1 session to help me with our new border terrier 8 month old pup Pixie. Not having owned a puppy before I felt I needed some guidance with basics. We had taken Pixie to a village hall training group where several dogs all trailed around the room attempting to do the same thing....! I just felt there was something lacking but I wasn’t sure of what it was. Definitely no individual attention, after 2 sessions I did not know what we would gain from this type of training. After a bronze 1:1 session with Selina I feel empowered! It might sound like an exaggeration but her enthusiasm and positivity are catching. She has given me lots of ideas and lots of information so I can do my own research. And we start dog training classes with her in a few weeks. Just small classes of 6 dogs max, where I know we’ll get the individual attention we need to be able to learn. I want to develop a solid relationship with my dog and I have no doubt Selina will help us achieve that. More...

We've done 2 courses including a home 1-2-1 session with Selina and her help and advice has been brilliant. She has helped us understand the needs of our dog and given us the information and support to deal with issues. The change in our dog has been amazing. I wish we had found Selina when looking for puppy classes as I'm sure had we gone to her from the beginning our issues would never have started. Dog training is not one size fits all, and in small classes selina is able to really work with each dog and adapt sessions individually. More...

I couldn’t recommend selina enough!!!! Having a troublesome puppy I was at my whits end!!!! How she understands the psychology behind the dogs behaviour is actually shocking! !! She explained to me that the food I was feeding her had additives inside which was a factor and also taught me ways to change my handling which made such a difference!!! Selina wasn’t/isn’t just a dog trainer she’s a asset in which helped change our fur baby into our perfect edition!!! Couldn’t recommend her enough 100% trust worthy great prices and great at her job!! 5****** all round!!!!!! More...

In the door, straight to the point. Addressed the problem immediately, no nonesense chit chat wasting precious time. I got easy to follow guidance and Selina didn’t stop advice & instruction for the duration of the session. Friendly, immensely knowledgeable and the best investment I’ve made in corrective behaviour for my dogs. Gave me so much info, backed up with examples of variations. Followed up with email & a full right up of session and plan going forward. I would recommend Selina to anyone & everyone. Truly professional expert knowledgeable friendly service. Fabulous More...

Selina is brilliant and is such a natural with dogs. We’ve tried other trainers but not had much of a success with any until we were recommended to try Hedingham Hounds.

Just wanted to say thank you Selina for the one to one training which is helping with Mabel’s recall. She is coming on in leaps and bounds ( literally) . Your advice is invaluable and you are always there to give advice when needed .

Selina came highly recommended by a friend of ours. We we’re having difficulty with our rescue dog, Darcy, who is extremely nervous of new visitors in the house. Selina spent some with us to understand the issue before meeting Darcy, then gave advise while observing Darcy’s behaviour. She talked us through some training techniques/ behaviour corrections while at the same time making sure not to overwhelm Darcy. We found the session extremely helpful and are just coming to the end of week one of our tailored plan, we have already seen a big improvement in Darcy’s behaviour ☺️. We will be booking a second session with Selina shortly to work on Darcy’s separation anxiety and once Darcy’s learnt the fundamental commands we’ll book up to Selina’s “Moody Mutt” course. Thank you Selina for all your help! More...

I recently called upon Selina’s services as my 19mth old dog found his voice and began attention seeking with a very loud bark during the evenings. Selina initially made a home visit and helped us to develop consistent behavioural strategies to help our young dog to self settle. Selina also emailed a 4wk programme of support outlining strategies that we could use. Nearly two weeks on our house is already a calmer and quieter environment. Thank you Selina! More...

Really enjoying the Moody Mutts course! Long way to go still but it has helped me a lot to see when my dog gets too excited and act rather than react. Being able to work close to other reactive dogs really helps too without having to feel ashamed when my dog does react and bark.. More...

Selina is brilliant! We have had a 1-1 behavioural session where we looked at resource guarding. The thing I love most is how she looks at everything- considering all aspects of the dogs life and behaviour (not just one thing). The guide she gives is comprehensive, helpful and most of all simple. We made several little changes and family have commented on how much calmer he is than 6 months ago. My favourite thing is her focus on the dogs language and now I much more aware of how he is reacting to situations. Then we did a hoopers course which was fantastic! And we cannot wait for the next. Selina works with every dog and owner at their own pace. It was so much fun and I would recommend it to everyone. Selina will teach you so much about yourself and your dog. Whatever the problem, or question, or worry she is non judgemental and so understanding! Flynn absolutely adores her. More...

Selina came for a home visit to train my two cavapoo sibling pups 5 mths old. I would definitely recommend her services.
She was very helpful and had a warm personality so I felt very relaxed , she listened to the issues we were having and gave me constructive feedback and advice on how to tackle them.
she brought with her a range of toys for the pups to try out to keep them mentally stimulated.
We tried out recall and tips to get them to toilet outside.
The dogs now come in straight from the garden when called , the toileting is getting better , it’s been 3 days now and I’m seeing improvements , got everything crossed I sort out the toileting!!
Selina sent over a plan and a review of what we discussed and also web links which was very helpful.
The pups and I are looking forward to our follow up session soon

We attended the 6 week puppy course, and really enjoyed each week. Selina has a way of explaining things e.g. how the dog see's each of our actions/requests. Certainly makes us think - we have this cute fluffy puppy just wanting to please us, yet we expect them to know not to do this, or do that. Its called puppy training but really its the owners who need training ! If you're prepared to put in the hours after class, and keep up with the training/advice, the pup's soon seem to grasp what you're expecting. My Shih Tzu pup can now sit, lay, paw, beg, both paws, and is very well socialised. We are still working on leave and stay but with the foundations Selina has given us we will get there ! Looking forward to another class in a couple of months to see what else we can learn :) More...
