Kind words from Happy Clients!

Our Cavapoo Poppy has just completed 6 months of training sessions with Hannah and we couldn’t be happier about the progress she has made!

We got Poppy just before the first COVID lockdown in March 2020 and as a result we were not able to attend any puppy training classes in her first 6 months or socialise her fully with other people and dogs so we really needed some help!

Poppy absolutely loved Hannah from the word go, and thanks to her guidance and patience we feel like we now understand our dog a lot better and have the knowledge and tools to continue developing her skills and behaviour ourselves.

We’re so grateful to have found Hannah and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her. Thank you Hannah for everything xx

Jo & Poppy

We had Teddy as a newborn pup and he was a ball of brown fluff. We decided to train him and also to give us confidence in ourselves and with him when out and about.

Hannah took him under her wing and we went through a training programme with him, he graduated yesterday with flying colours.
We now have a puppy who recalls, walks off the lead most of the time and is not frightened of his environment.

Hannah’s training is not just about instruction to the puppy/dog it is much more. Quietly she develops confidence in the owner and they undergo subtle training as well, Shirley’s confidence with Teddy has improved massively.

Hannah we cannot thank you enough for what you have done for us, continue to grow and develop your business, you make a huge difference.

We will always recommend you, thank you

David & Teddy

We have just finished 7 months of training sessions with Hannah and our Sprocker spaniel, Islay, and cannot recommend her highly enough.

We had originally planned to go to puppy classes, but lockdown meant that was not possible, and as Islay went from sweet puppy to bitey little sprockerdile we realised we needed some more specialist help!

We found Hannah online, and with her specialism in Spaniels, were really keen to work with her.

We booked a video consultation and it was the best decision we could have made.
Islay is a very busy, working spaniel and Hannah was able to tailor our training sessions to work on calmness, and engagement with us, rather than the dog, bird or squirrel on the other side of the park.

During lockdown, we had quite a few training sessions over videocall which worked really well, and we were able to build up the foundation skills at home, such as boundaries and self-control, which have really set us up for success when we go out on walks. In hindsight we see that going to training classes in a room with 10 other excitable puppies was that last thing our spaniel would have needed!

The service Hannah offers is truly excellent – she goes above and beyond with the support and advice she offers.

It does require a financial and time commitment, over months, not weeks, but the results are 100% worth it.

Islay is now a year old, and we’ve been able to achieve a level of recall and engagement that is better than we ever dared hope for.

As much as training Islay, Hannah has trained us in how to work with Islay and given us the confidence and knowledge to enjoy off-lead walks without worry.

We have been working with Hannah since March this year and have seen amazing improvements in our pup.

Arla had always been shy and a little bit frightened of the world. She wasn’t a big fan of some big noises and shopping trolleys, prams and suitcases scared her silly.

She wasn’t sure about cars or other dogs and sometimes barked and lunged to scare these terrors away. But not any longer.

Through lots of different confidence boosting games, marking positive behaviours and fun with other dogs, she is now much happier, much braver and much less stressed.

Hannah has taught us how to read Arla’s body language and we’ve now got a whole suitcase of tricks and tips to use if we get in a position where Arla might be a little bit worried.

We’re still on a journey and sure we still have some hiccups, but Hannah is always there to help and support us without judging, celebrate our wins, laugh at us walking around a car park with a shopping trolley and answer our questions no matter how silly they may be.

We’re super grateful for all of her advice and Arla’s super grateful for all of her sausages.

Sally Edwards & Arla

Thank you so much, Hannah, all your advice helped us achieve what we thought was impossible task.

We can now walk all our 5 cocker spaniels at same time (age 4, 3, sisters 18 months and 21 weeks old pup). Hannah gave as the most up to date, positive and kind advice to suit our needs, she had put together amazing program tailored exactly for us, she always encouraged us and reminded us that even small achievement is an achievement and that it is ok to have a bad day.

As a breeder of this wonderful dogs I often reach out to her to update my knowledge on behaviour and best ways to socialise my litters to give them best start in life.

Although we are not local to each other, technology is amazing and every meeting is just like having her right there, always following up with notes and helpful information after and never too long to answer any questions, via emails/messages, when they arise.

I cannot thank Hannah enough for all the support and advice that she has provided regarding our nervous and reactive cocker spaniel Jerry.

Hannah has helped me to understand what is likely going through Jerry’s head and when and why he is reacting/feeling nervous.

When we started with Hannah Jerry had a lot of lead frustration around other dogs, and would also fixate on dogs from quite a distance. With a lot of work and Hannah’s advice, Jerry is now able to walk past other dogs without reacting and generally doesn’t fixate on other dogs, even when he does occasionally, we are now able to break this and distract him.

Jerry is also nervous of people he doesn’t know, and whilst this is still the case, we are now able to hold conversations with other dog walkers without him barking, and he now warms to people much quicker than he used to.

We worked with Hannah for around a year, and whilst jerry still has his ‘issues’ he has improved immeasurably thanks to Hannah’s help.

He is still very much a work in progress, however Hannah has helped us to set a solid foundation to our training, for which I cannot thank her enough.

Hannah is an excellent trainer, very encouraging, patient and really understands Spaniels. We did a remote training session over FaceTime yesterday and it worked really well.

She was able to see what Finley was doing, offer suggestions and support and we could talk through how to take his training forward whilst we’re in lockdown. It worked really well and is highly recommend. Thanks Hannah

We have worked with Hannah recently after having a couple of issues, mainly resource guarding and anxiety around touch.

Hannah has helped us progress with the vets for tests and a pain trial which we probably wouldn’t have managed alone.

She has also given us some management techniques and methods to teach touch with consent which is working really well 😊

Aside from that we have worked on engagement out and about, loose lead walking, connection around distractions and settling in a cafe 👍
Hannah has been non-judgemental, motivational and really helpful for us and Dizzee.

Rachel and Dizzee

Hannah is amazing!

Chester can’t cope being alone and Hannah has taught us so many amazing positive ways to help Chester feel more confident being alone.

It’s not a quick thing to teach but it really works and he’s becoming more confident each week!

Thank you!!

Joanne Poland & Chester

I used Hannah to help me with Dave, my springer spaniel. All my contact with Hannah was via zoom, which worked perfectly for us.

Being able to chat whilst having a cuppa in the comfort of your own home and not worry about an anxious dog is brilliant.

Hannah recognised that Dave’s behaviour were most likely medically related and he had some ongoing ear issues that needed addressing at the vets.

After several more vet visits and encouragement from Hannah a whole lot of drops and ear cleaning regimes we managed to get this sorted. Hannah taught me to listen and understand Dave and also helped with my other spaniel, Monty.

I was able to contact Hannah at any time and felt fully supported and still do!

Thank you Hannah for giving me a happy household and for helping Dave, Monty and me.

It has been around 7 months since we found Hannah….. and what a find she was!

Our then 10month old cocker spaniel brothers were, i thought, naughty and out of control, and we had started to question our abilities as dog owners.

After meeting with Hannah she explained to us that the behaviour our boys were displaying was actually due to fear and anxiety, especially around other dogs.

She helped us to identify the cause of their ‘trauma’ and explained the methods and lifestyle changes we needed to introduce to help our babies be happier.

7 months ago Buddy would completely lose his mind at the sight of a dog more than 2 football pitches away……. now he walks around the park off his lead paying very little attention to dogs just feet away!!!

We have so many more challenges to overcome but thanks to Hannah we have already achieved so much.

I feel like she has fixed parts of us that were broken and given us the confidence as owners that i never thought we would have.

Helen Gobsill, Archie Buddy

Hannah was (and is!) absolutely fantastic since the first day!

I have struggled with my first dog to establish a good recall and when I got another puppy I knew this was one of the priorities to work on. Now little snickers comes running even when recalled away from play with other dogs!

I’m so happy with the service Hannah provides, and she really listens to individual needs and what you want to achieve.

Looking forward to working with her more in the future and learn lots more with Snickers. Definitely recommend 100%, thank you Hannah!” 

Paulina Weber & Snickers

“Within a month of working with Hannah we’d seen such great improvements with Maple, our cocker spaniel – progress we could never have imagined in such a short space of time!

Hannah is so friendly, supportive and completely non-judgemental and what she says makes complete sense! We chose her to help us during lockdown as she was so flexible in delivering her sessions over FaceTime and we felt we needed the specialist spaniel help she offers!

We are now about 4 months in and Maple continues to develop such lovely and strong behaviours – the time and effort to work on what Hannah teaches is so worth it teaching long lasting behaviours over commands is having such a positive outcome for both us and Maple!

Her recall is brilliant, she’s getting better and better at loose lead walks and she’s generally a much more settled dog! We love our sessions with Hannah and can’t wait to see what we can achieve for Maple!”

Zoe Clarke & Maple

Hannah has helped us enormously. She is insightful about our dog’s behaviour. She has so many ideas to direct Lottie’s development.

We first knew of Hannah through seeing improvement in another spaniel. At the time it seemed like expensive training but it has been more than worth it. She is always positive and supportive and she has a wealth of practical ideas and skills to pass on.

 We have had one to one training sessions as well as using “Spaniel Inner Circle” online.

They have complimented each other nicely.

We would not hesitate to recommend Pawsitively Pawsome to anyone with a spaniel or spaniel cross
