Due to Covid19 and the national "Lockdown" all programmes will be carried out via video on Zoom until further notice New for 2021 a programme to give your puppy the best start in life. Many puppy classes focus on training your puppy to do smart things like sit, wait & walk on a lead. These are all valid things that dogs need to do (eventually) but they have a lifetime to learn these things. With this programme we cover the things they need to know such as confidence, bonding, meeting new things and people in the small window of time they have available which can be started as soon as your gorgeous pup is home & settled and can be completed before they are even allowed out into the big wide world.Learn More
Due to Covid19 and the national "Lockdown" all programmes will be carried out via video on Zoom until further notice. New for 2021 a programme to help your teenage dog work through this major life change. This period in your dogs life can ne frightening, stressful for them and a worry for you. With this programme we re-build their confidence, and work through any issues that the fear and stress of these hormonal changes have uncovered. During this time you may feel that your once lovely & loving puppy has turned into a bit of a monster and has forgotten many things they previously knew. This is usually not the case but with the hormones running wild this stage may need careful handling.Learn More

Since the March 2020 the need for puppy training has increased due to the number of new puppies that have joined families due to them being at home more. But the options available for myself and my friends and colleagues have also had to change due to "lockdowns" and restrictions which are continuing. This means due to ever changing circumstances and the numbers of puppies that require support and "training" you may be interested in what is currently available for you and your puppy.Read More
Had our first training session on Sunday and what a difference in Rio already. Gill taught us as well as him on how to react to things around us and to watch him and let him tell us if he is nervous Looking forward to next week . Highly recommended.
Gill is patient and encouraging. The sessions really help to build trust between dog and owner. We have learnt strategies to help with various behaviours in a positive way. Thoroughly recommend.
Reactive Dog Training I have attended two courses with my 2 reactive dogs. Gill is very positive and has helped me have to confidence to recognise signals from my dogs and act accordingly. I have even started walking them again! And Flappy has made a new friend on our walks!!! Thank you
Very good for new owners Gill is very good at showing how new owners can spot the behaviours in dogs and overcome them to the benefit of both. By showing owners and explaining what the dogs are doing and why, you get invaluable tips on how to control and enjoy the dogs without worry. Bertie has loved the sessions and so have I, and both dog and owner have come on in leaps and bounds!
Great opportunity for my dog to meet farm animals in a controlled setting. Will be booking into the next one.
Back to Basic's is just what Theo and I needed. Theo was an easily distracted dog when out and now he is a pleasure to walk. Great environment for lessons. Thank you Gill for the training and advise
Great to be around farm animals and be up close to the lambs. Lyla didn’t seem to be to bothered by them. Gill does take a slow and gentle approach so that dogs can process the environment they are in. Good afternoon. Thanks Gill.
Absolutely superb Had a fabulous first session with Gill. Usha had an absolutely brilliant time, she slept for hours after! Plenty of opportunities for her to learn, play and 'be' in a safe, controlled environment. We both learnt new skills ... and are already practising them at home. Gill explained everything really clearly which made everything so much easier to do! Thank you, really looking forward to the next session
Great Fun for Dogs We have been bringing Lottie our Jack Russell to Hoopers on Sunday mornings and she absolutely loves it. The trainers are brilliant and explain the exercises really clearly and make it fun for the dogs with plenty of opportunity to socialise too.
Hi Gill I hope you are ok and all your classes are going well. I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated the classes you did for us and for all that you taught us – a big thank you! Ella and I did really enjoy the classes, especially the puppy socialisation ones. I feel they really helped Minnie get on with the other puppies and got her used to being around new dogs and experiences. I get lots of compliments about how well trained Minnie is, which makes me a very proud puppy mum! She is very obedient (on the whole!), sociable and keen to please. I do lots with her off the lead – she never goes far and comes back quickly if called. I believe that a lot of this is due to what you taught me and it gave me confidence with Minnie and her training. I love being out and about with her and she is now enjoying running off road with me, which is just great for us both! So a big thank you from all of us for your help and guidance (and a woof and a lick from Minnie!)
Hoopers We are on our second Hoopers course with Gill and really enjoying it. The lessons are lots of fun and our young dog Marble has become much more focussed and attentive. Would thoroughly recommend the sessions.
I initially met Gill when attending her Reactive Dog Classes as my Rottie could and was very reactive. Roxie and I learnt together in these classes, skills which would help me in helping her in situations she was not comfortable in. She is maturing into a very well mannered girl albeit can still have to odd moment but I am more aware of her body language. Thanks Gill :-) xx
Having nearly always just done obedience, I feel we are more of a team moving around a Hoopers course together!
