We recently took our 2 year old doberman, Ava, to ADK9 for 2 weeks training, and I couldn't recommend it more!
Ava was a little anxious and could be reactive in certain situations, she was also sometimes hard to control on the lead. Our trainer Danny focused on all these things during her training and has worked absolute wonders! With some simple commands and a solid foundation built by Danny, we now have much more control of Ava. She is far more comfortable when out and about and we are more confident taking her for walks.
Danny put us at total ease when dropping Ava off, sent regular updates about her progress and looked after her so well. We cannot thank him enough!
Our dog walks are now much more enjoyable and Ava is a truly happy and content dog.
Our (3 year old) Labrador was reactive, anxious with his socialisation and needed foundations for basic manners, constant pulling on the lead and sniffing around on walks…. It was a drain to walk him ….constantly pulling ( he’s a big dog )After two weeks of boarding school I can say you’ve absolutely transformed our family dog, not only given us confidence as owners but offered him confidence and reassurances. Pulling on lead …. What pulling!!! Immaculately walks to heel on the lead and follows commands trained during his stay … absolutely recommend this to anyone struggling!
Louie our three year old rescue bull lurcher was over zealous with other dogs and humans. He also pulled on the lead and was very reactive towards cats and occasionally other dogs. Kirsty trained him for two weeks; he has been home for a week and his behaviour has much improved much more engaged and less reactive. I was worried he had lost some of his character but that is slowly coming back in a calm way. Yet to let him off lead and test his recall but that is a work in progress. Can't thank her enough.
We have had such a brilliant experience with ADK9 and will now be using them for all our training and kennel needs!
Our 2yr old Border Collie was struggling with his manners and aggresstion towards strangers and dogs. From the minute we got in touch with the team at ADK9, they put us at ease and were so helpful explaining all of the information.We were able to get booked in nice and quickly and had a meet and greet with the team beforehand. Dozer was booked in for two weeks residential training; we received regular updates from his trainer, Danny, and lots of info on how he was getting on and what they had been working on. He was so loved and well looked after by the team.
We as owners have also learnt so much and spent time with Danny training us! We can see such an improvement in Dozer's behaviour and are excited to keep going back for more top up training to continue his progress. The support we've had after we brought Dozer home has also been brilliant, Danny sent over all of the information needed for us to apply the training at home.
We can't thank the team enough, you've all been amazing and really helped our family! Dozer will be back!!
I came to adk9 with a 9 month old German shepherd that was reactive on the lead and I was struggling to walk him and in all honesty dreaded taking him for walks and would purposely choose places I knew there wouldn’t be people or other dogs. We decided a few 1-2-1 would be in both of our best interests and I can’t emphasise how much of a difference I have seen already! Within the first 10 minutes of our first 1-2-1 my dog was walking to heel with Danny which is something I’ve never witnessed before, Danny gave me clear directions and happily answered any questions I had. Kirsty then bought out a residential dog so we could work on my dogs reactivity and I was amazed at how easily Danny managed to regain my dogs attention and teach me exactly how to do the same.
Both Danny and Kirsty made me feel completely at ease and were so informative and helpful and I came out of my first 1-2-1 feeling so much more confident in my abilities to walk him. Fast forward a week and I have been implementing all the steps and corrections Danny had previously shown me and I feel like I am walking a completely different dog. I had my second training session today and both Danny and Kirsty were impressed by the work we had both put in over the past week and worked some more on his heel work around other dogs and yet again I have come away feeling more confident. I couldn’t praise these people more if I tried, amazing establishment, amazing staff and amazing results. Thank you adk9
