We have not owned a dog before we brought Hazel home and we didn’t know what sort of training a pup needs.Reading through several sites and reviews, we decided to book the ‘Puppy Starters’ course with Joyful Dogs. The description of the course and what was to be expected was helpful and clear.Once we started the course, we quickly learned that the training was not just for the pup but for us as well.We learnt lots of techniques and exercises to keep Hazel focussed on us.At home we use the games we learned like ‘find it’ which Hazel loves!Since we began the training, Hazel is more focussed on us and is much easier to go for a walk.Using Joy’s recall practices and techniques, Hazel comes back to us when we call 90% of the time... success!As we have still got lots more to learn, we have booked the ‘Improvers’ training and are very much looking forward to it!The training, advice and tips we have been given are very good and we highly recommend Joyful Dogs to any owner.

Highly recommend cotswold dog training. Perfect with dogs and most reliable. Wouldn't recommend any other knowing dogs are coming out for the better with the training. Vinny is so respectful along with giving dogs the training they need, also being reasonably priced. How much of an outcome in dogs which vinny has worked with, the change in dogs are more or so perfect when cotswold dog training are doing the most reliable job when needed!

We have been so impressed by how our little rescue dog, Mollie has come on under the care and guidance of Johnny. Not only does she love her walks with him but in just a few sessions we have seen a massive improvement in her behaviour and can now confidently let her off lead in public spaces without fear of her running off. Johnny also came to our home and spent time with us explaining and demonstrating his methods so that we can continue Mollie’s training ourselves. He’s super friendly, highly professional and Mollie’s a big fan! Highly recommend.
