We had emma do a one to one with our puppy two years ago, it was great! She taught us the basics and it really helped us with our routine - toilet training, commands etc. however after a year and a half we noticed some behavior issues that we wanted to sort - we knew Emma would know what to do so I gave her a call! She was so helpful and understanding, we left our dog with her for three weeks for her to get a chance to see these issues first hand and to try to fix them. We have another little puppy now too and she took her for boarding - which also helped immensely because she could see how both dogs acted when they were together etc.
When they came home we noticed a massive difference! He was much calmer and more confident in himself. She dropped him home to us and spent time with us showing us what he had learned and explaining why the behavior issues took place. She explained that he might need more time and reassured us that it was included in the initial fee. After two weeks she took him again for another two weeks and it really did make a massive difference. It’s is so reassuring to know that Emma is on the other side of the phone for any questions relating to our dogs, behavior, diet etc. our dog has been an angel ever since and we are confident it will stay this way,
I would highly recommend Emma for one to one training in your home, behaviors training if needed and for boarding also, they couldn’t be in safer hands!
Hi Emma, it was great to meet you and great to work with you. Polly is thriving! She's nipping less now we have her food sorted and she doesn't have a sore tummy. We're enjoying walks more, using the gentle leader and a long lead and Polly is getting more independence. Overall we're all feeling more confident and enjoying life! We thoroughly enjoyed your visit. Thank you Michelle, Brian and Polly x
Emma came to see me, my 4-year-old daughter and our 4-month-old Cockapoo for a one on one training session 2 months ago. She was brilliant. The training tips and one-word commands she gave us were fantastic. It was the best thing ever for our daughter. She used to treat our puppy as a hand bag and our puppy used to treat our daughter as a big over sized toy to nip at. Now we all live happily together. I think everyone should have a one to one session with Emma to understand what your dog is thinking and how to praise and give out to them correctly. I would highly recommend Emma.
My dog, Rosie, was so maltreated before I found her bleeding in the middle of Portobello Bridge that I've always been afraid of asking very much of her. A visit from Emma of Hollybarn has shown me the error of my ways. With Emma's guidance, I have discovered that Rosie actually enjoys training and since I've begun the programme that Emma suggested she is a happier and more relaxed dog. What gave me confidence besides Emma's obvious knowledge of how Rosie's mind works what her flexibility in what we did and how we did. I would recommend her without reservation.
Emma, my husband and I cannot thank you enough for your knowledge, training and support. Rupert is already responding and engaging with our clear, concise and calm demands. Totally transformative for all. You are an exceptional talent.
