Group dog training classes in West Cornwall specialising in Life Skills and Scent Work
From our very 1st call Vicki has been such a great help and support with our puppy. The training is practical and Vicki is so supportive and encouraging. If you have a new puppy I would absolutely recommend getting in touch with Vicki.
Vicki was absolutely amazing and taught me so much, not just about the training techniques but also about the behaviour of dogs and why they are demonstrating certain behaviours which really helped me to understand my puppy. I can’t thank Vicki enough for her personal and caring approach. I would 100% recommend Love Your Paws to anyone, definitely the best trainer around!
Best decision I've ever made! If you're investing in a hairy addition to your family, then go the extra mile and book a course with her, it's fun, rewarding and gives you challenges and methods in training youd never think about that will set you up and last a lifetime. My pup has learnt a lot and both of us are confident we are going in the right direction. THANK YOU VICKI, your a star, 5 stars in fact!
Myself and Rusty joined in with the Love your Paws puppy zoom class last night. I have to say that even though I was in a relatively small space in my lounge and the family were around (I was concerned about space and children!!) the class was really enjoyable and we learnt a lot. Rusty was calm and relaxed throughout and enjoyed learning. Today was beautiful so managed to get out to practice. Thank you Vicki we look forward to next week.
Love this scent training class and so does our puppy Bella. Fascinating to learn and watch how the dogs use their noses to see their world. Highly recommend love your paws. Very friendly very informative and very caring.
This fun beginners scent course is highly recommended for all breeds! Me and Betsy (a beagle ) really enjoyed it and i was constantly amazed at " the power of the dog's nose" in learning the techniques
Vicky was a knowledgable,kind and considerate trainer to both owners and dogs taking part
Adventure walks are just the best!
They are a great way for dogs and owners to socialise with one another especially if like me, you normally walk on your own with your 4 legged friend. Vicki is always very open to answer any questions and often instigates a topic for discussion amongst us humans. There is often a real mix of breeds on the walks which makes it very interesting to watch how they each enjoy the walk and interact with one another. I recently gatecrashed a Puppy Adventure Walk and this was equally as enjoyable.
Vicki is a superb dog trainer - you would not find better. I can say this with total honesty as Bramble and I have been with her for the past 2 1/2 years, completing puppy classes, loose lead walking, 1-2-1 sessions, recall and scent training. Love Your Paws Dog Training is 5 years old this week -Happy Birthday and just keep doing what you are doing. You are amazing.
What an excellent class, I thoroughly recommend it.
Vicki is a knowledgeable and informative trainer and led the class well. I did not know a great deal about scent work and she gave a good balance of practical trials with theory and knowledge. This is a great course for beginners.
My dog, Kobe, loved it, I was astonished at the size of the Kong he detected and loved seeing his perseverance and concentration. It was a great way for us to strengthen our bond together.
This has been another brilliant course. Amazing to see all the dogs (and owners of course) learning new skills in such a fun set of sessions. This course has been so helpful in thinking about the verbal and non verbal signals that we give and how we can learn to better communicate with the dogs. Great to have the opportunity to try fun activities and it has been a lovely class where we have have engaged with other handlers and learnt a lot from each other.
As always, absolutely amazing. Eadie and I are just finishing up this course and I wish we could do it all over again. Hoopers is a great way to help build not only your dog's confidence but your own as well. I was amazed at how quickly Eadie picked everything up, but even when she struggles, Vicki showed me how I could make things easier through more clear communication. Vicki is really patient - even when my 12 month old Cockapoo has her mandatory 10 minute zoomies. She gives brilliant advice on how to help us both focus and work together. She is also so aware of my dog's limits, which is so refreshing.
We've done a lot of classes with Vicki and they are all brilliant and bring another dimension to my partnership with my pooch. Life skills is about helping my dog learn how to be confident and thrive in a human world. Scent work is about building trust with my dog - I need to trust she knows what she is doing and can smell something so small I have no way of finding it. Hoopers is about us both working together and teaching me how to communicate clearly.
Vicki is an expert in training humans how to communicate with their dogs and enable them to thrive!
I can't wait for more courses!
