Ian set us on the right track from the start with simple, no-nonsense, easy-to-follow instructions. We were taught how to get Scooter to sit, drop, stay, come, and walk beautifully on-lead. Ian taught us how to prevent and stop any unwanted behaviours such as excessive chewing, barking or jumping up.

Ian, the dog trainer - please add 'lifesaver' in brackets as I don't know how Molly and I would have survived without his expert knowledge of how a dog thinks and behaves, his kind yet firm authority with both the animal and the owner. Molly still receives compliments on how well trained she is when we are out and about. Always indebted.

Ian's confidence and knowledge is fantastic and has also allowed our beloved Buddy to be calm and collected throughout his training. Ian is well aware of how to train unlike "most" puppy training.

Ian showed great patience with Walter and I and explained why Walter was the way he was and how my behaviour needed to change to ensure Walter's behaviour changed. I'd done pretty much everything wrong from the time I brought the puppy home.

Ian totally changed the way we were training Atticus. His technique is to train the owners, so you can train your dog. We saw a marked improvement in Atticus' behaviour instantly. Atticus still tried pushing the boundaries, but we now had real tools to fix the problems.

When we picked up Max, Ian was there to meet us at home to initially start the training. This involved Max acclimatizing to his new environment, which included his new sleeping quarters and eating arrangements. We were expecting a very noisy and disruptive first few nights but Max did not cry once and was extremely happy and contented and had been running up our back stairs from the word go. We were extremely impressed just with the initial training regime.

He assured us that with proper training we could obtain that goal. He has been right. We are proud owners of a spoodle. With Ian's help we have a wonderfully trained pet.

I believe Zippy is a happier dog since Ian's visit, and I know I am certainly a happier dog owner. I gladly recommend Ian and Ian The Dog Trainer to anyone, no matter how old or unresponsive to training you may think your dog is.

Ian's visit was a revelation. Ian quickly exploded the myths. Ian explained why his primary goal in training is to ensure the dog does not dominate the owner's life, but behaves sensibly according to your needs and normal social expectations.
