Anna Moss Orla is in blissful ignorance of how lucky she is to have landed up in Hampshire and under the guidance of Armchair Pets. She came to me with a prey drive that is off the scale. Lead reactive mainly due to frustration and high energy levels. And absolutely no idea of appropriate behaviour around other dogs. Today, 18mths on, she ran free on a beach with dozens of other dogs around her…recall brilliant…..even when she saw a tennis ball being thrown to another dog…..It was the MOST rewarding thing to see her enjoying herself and running free and relaxed. The learning curve continues for both of us. I CANNOT THANK ARMCHAIR PETS enough. Francis and Lorraine for all their help and support and gentle guidance along a sometimes rocky road. And it is always FUN and POSITIVE. Every lesson I have I come away feeling a little more has been achieved…….. We are now doing Rally which needs some calm obedience…something that doesn’t come naturally to Orla….again lots of fun added to the lessons and lots of patient encouragement from Francis and Lorraine has gained us a rosette in competition this year THANKYOU ARMCHAIR PETS
Armchair Pets have been just wonderful for my little dog and me. I started four years ago in puppy class with no confidence that I would be able to do anything ,convinced I was totally the wrong person for my little puppy. With patient and experienced trainers, plus a little gentle persuasion, we began competing when my dog was around eighteen months old and have never looked back. We attend shows, perform all manner of dog tricks, compete in rally obedience but above all have so much fun and they have taught me so much about understanding how my little dog thinks. She loves attending class each week. The club is welcoming, the training is all positive reinforcement based with qualified instructors who are always willing to help. You progress at your own pace and take it as far as you want to go, nothing is pressured plus there are social walks and fun activities to join. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Great training and patience of a saint to work with puppies who just want to play. Our puppy has learnt so much along with its owners
My Evie and I received a warm welcome from Frances and Lorraine today when we joined the Talking Dog Rally class. They realised we were nervous and their kindness and professionalism quickly put us at ease. We loved our introduction to Rally and thoroughly enjoyed making friends with our new classmates. Looking forward to returning for our next training session and hopefully showing some improvement after doing the homework. Thank you Armchair Pets.
I love to go Armchair Pets training. I see all my friends & really enjoy all the exercises & games. I have a go at them with loads of enthusiasm, although not always the necessary skill! Our group walks & parties are just the best. I have learnt a lot but have had loads of fun. Pawsome!
A very caring and fun environment for your dog both with regard to training and home boarding. Highly recommend.
