What previous clients have said

"After getting a golden retriever puppy and not having had a dog before, I really needed to find puppy training classes to make sure the foundations were secure (for me as much as the puppy) as I didn’t know what I was doing. The 6 week course in Copford was the perfect intro to basics and Cooper and I really got loads out of it. The principles Matt taught us are what we use daily. Thanks Matt for a great course; I’m sure we’ll be back again!"

"We previously struggled with our 6 month old puppy's anxiety outside the house, but we found the format and training at Matt's classes helped us make huge progress from the very first session and as a result we now have an extremely confident and outgoing dog! Having tried numerous trainers prior to Matt, I can safely say he is head and shoulders above the rest and would strongly recommend to anybody.. we wish we had found him sooner!"

"Just completed Matt’s 6 week puppy class and would definitely recommend for any new puppy parents"

"You really have a lovely atmosphere and it puts people at ease"

"Matt is a legend! We booked a 6 week puppy course for our Labrador and I can definitely see a huge improvement from just 6 classes. The classes were great for the dog but also for me as an owner. The commands he teaches are really simple and effective and have definitely made our home life easier with our pup. Would 100% recommend training with Matt. Really affordable and you can tell he really has your dogs best interests at heart. We can’t thank you enough!"

What previous clients have said

"I cannot recommend Matt highly enough. He is calm, patient and very easy to work with and understand. As a first time puppy owner who had no idea how to integrate our much wanted pup into our lively family home, I found his methods very logical and easy to follow. He has taught us how to understand our pup and to see life through his eyes, which has hugely helped with the bonding process. Most importantly of all, Matt’s methodology is 100% based on positive reinforcement, with care and respect for our dog being at the heart of everything he teaches. This is exactly what we wanted to find in a trainer, and I am so grateful that we found him. You will not be disappointed"

"Thank you for the training this morning you are inspirational and Finley really enjoys the sessions"


"Having tried numerous trainers prior to Matt, I can safely say he is head and shoulders above the rest and would strongly recommend to anybody.. we wish we had found him sooner!"

"Brilliant session with Matt today, he was really knowledgeable, made everything sound so good and simple, and ran through some brilliant training to run through with pup, and I look forward to booking a second session with him!"
