The six week course passed by very quickly but it was a good experience overall. We learned a lot although we would have liked our puppy to remember a lot more! I'd definitely recommend the classes for anyone with a young puppy. More...

Dermot has just graduated from puppy school. Really recommend... Emma Clare is excellent. Great to be in a group with different dogs. ... and to see other owners in same position. We learnt loads that you wouldn't get from a book & it was lovely seeing all the dogs grow and learn over 6 weeks More...

We thoroughly enjoyed the training! It was great to meet other owners, their adorable pups and it felt good you were in the same boat. Emma-Clare our teacher was great - kind, approachable and made the 1-hour lesson whizz past. She took to each puppy and never judged their behaviour (especially since ours, although a good puppy is rather energetic!). I'd highly recommend any new dog owners to pursue dog training and if you're in the Croydon/Surrey area to go with Apple Tree Dog Training. More...

I am so glad I took the plunge and booked some one to one sessions with Emma-Clare for our 5 year old French bulldog. It is something I have thought about doing for a while but wasn't sure if I had left it a little bit too late- I am very pleased to say I was wrong! Our first session was in our home, followed by another session at our local park and it's been great to see how much our dog has picked up the new learnings!Emma-Clare is very patient and happy to answer any questions you may have, I am so very glad I contacted her and I am looking forward to seeing how much more my dog and I can learn.

A privilege to have stumbled upon this (through recommendation at the vet). I'm absolutely confident it will increase both the dog's quality of life and the family's pleasure in the dog ten-fold. We did both beginners and improvers - not because we specially were having problem, but just because our puppy loved learning! Some of what we cover has obvious practical uses (stay, leave, heel etc), but some of it is just fun for both parties. I hadn't realised how much dogs like a bit of mental stimulation - it's another way of playing with them. More...

We loved going to puppy school. It was not just helpful but really fun and our puppy made some puppy friends. Emma-Clare is always very reliable and has tips for everything, she is also very patient. Our puppy has improved so much since this course and we've learned so many things to carry on in the future. We would highly recommend puppy school. More...

Brilliant, so helpful and reassuring. Really thoughtful about individual needs during the sessions as well. Can't rate highly enough.

Emma Clare is a fantastic puppy trainer, she was organised, kind and flexible when helping us with our 2 rescue pups. She showed us creative and practical ways of training and provided her own handmade toys as well as a selection of other resources we could purchase if we wanted to. I would highly recommend her services if you have a puppy. More...

We are so thankful to have been given Purley Puppy School details by our Veterinary Surgery. It is a minefield trying to find the correct trainer for your precious puppy and also yourself. Emma-Clare was very happy for us to come along to a session without Berkeley to observe first and see if the school was up to our expectation (which are high)! We were made very welcome by the small class of puppies and there owners. We registered for the beginners class, which went all too quickly. During this time, Berkeley was asked to go along with some other puppy school pupils to the National Pet Show at London's Excel. It was a very big adventure for him at 16 weeks, but with Emma-Clare and founder Gwen Bailey's help he shone with the other puppies in the display ring. We are now into the fifth week of our Improvers training at 9 months, which has been invaluable with continued wonderful training and supplied information sheets after each class. I hope we will get the opportunity to continue our training with Emma-Clare and would recommend her to anyone who wants the best possible outcome for their puppy. One final note, you are never made to feel inadequate as an owner. More...

We visited many breeders before choosing the right one and we fully expected to do the same to find the right trainer for us and our puppy, but that was until we met Emma-Clare at Puppy School Purley. We had intended to arrange a one to one session with a few trainers before going along to view them in a class situation and Emma-Clare just happened to be the first. She arrived on-time at our home, fully laden with toys and treats, with a relaxed and calm manner that we instantly warmed too and it was love at first sight for our puppy! Our 1 hour session turned into 1 hour 30 minutes without anyone noticing as she made the training both informative and fun, and the way our 10 week old puppy was responding to her was incredible. By the end of the session we knew we had found the right person to help train our puppy and promptly signed up for the classes. Puppy School was even more fun than the one to ones and it was great seeing our puppy socialise with others of similar age in a controlled environment. 5 months on we are delighted with our decision to use Emma-Clare at Puppy School Purley and we look forward to continuing our puppy's training with Emma-Clare in the future!!

Emma-Clare was like an angel coming into our, newly found, whirlwind of a life having brought home our little puppy Cameron. She is the most patient person we have ever met and any problems we came up against she had a solution. Emma-Clare uses reward based training and this was something Cameron thrived on. He is now doing all the normal puppy things such as sit, stay, down and stand but he also learned some cute tricks that he loves to show off to friends. We chose the one on one training as we wanted practical training in our own home environment and Emma-Clare was very flexible with timing and was able to come to us early allowing my husband to get to work after our session. I whole heartedly thank Emma-Clare and know that she is at the end of the phone should we come across any problems in the future. More...

We have attended Emma-Clare's Puppy School training course as well as having a one-to-one session at home a few weeks before the first Puppy School class. As first-time puppy owners Emma-Clare's advice, understanding and reassurance have been invaluable. In the one-to-one session Emma-Clare gave us useful tips and advice which really helped improve some behaviour issues immediately. The Puppy School classes are fun and supportive and a great way to socialise your puppy in a safe and controlled environment. Emma-Clare is so good with all the puppies in class, whatever their issues. Our puppy loved her (and her treat bag!). Highly recommended. More...

We really benefitted from attending the puppy and improvers class with Emma-Clare. The rewards based training really worked for our lively Labrador and although it was tough to keep him focussed at the beginning, Emma-Clare's patience and knowledge kept us going and the improvement over the weeks was really noticeable.
