Joining the worried dog classes has been the best thing we have done for our doggo! Learnt so much about his behaviour as well as how to help him (and us!) when he’s in potential stressful situations.Thank you Bob and Pals!

I did the Worried Dogs training course with my chihuahua Lola and it was fantastic! I really liked the holistic and empathetic approach. I gained some great insight into how dogs’ brains work, how to reduce overall levels of anxiety and skills to deal with specific triggers - for Lola, other dogs and people walking past the house. Lola is a much calmer, happier dog as a result of this course so I would definitely recommend it.

We attended the Teenage Training classes throughout November which were great! We learnt lots and have definitely seen progress. We’ll be continuing the training on a 121 basis and are looking forward to seeing more results!

The teenage terrors training was superb. We were able to take so much away, to work at on our daily walks and training to see improvements week on week. That coupled with one to one training, brought amazing improvements in our relationship of trust and companionship with our dog. Highly recommend.

We recently attended the training course for teenage dogs! We have learned such a lot from Rachel in the few weeks on the course. It has given us the confidence to just enjoy our dog knowing we are doing the best we can by implementing lots of new ideas from Rachel. Rachel is knowledgeable, experienced and obviously has a great passion for her work and loves dogs. I can highly recommend the course

We started using Bob and Pals for groups walks for our dog during the week whilst we are working, but we have also learned lots and had fun at in person and virtual circus school training classes. Rach, Lauren and the team are great with the dogs which really is the most important thing, but they are also really lovely to deal with,as well as being super knowledgeable and helpful. They always try and accommodate our needs and the dog. Keep up the great work

Having not had a puppy before, we spent absolutely ages trawling the Internet for suitable classes - by chance Bob & Pals popped up at the perfect time! We didn't need classes to help us get the dog to sit and stay etc...what Rachael teaches is far more valuable, she gave us a great understanding of the basics of dog psychology and their natural needs and instincts. The course taught us how to enrich Izzys life and make our own soo much easier and more enjoyable. Rachael went above and beyond for us and we wouldn't hesitate to use her again in future. She's also far more entertaining than your typical 'teacher'! 😅

We’ve been part of the Bob and pals family for the past 6 months. Lucy Rachel and Lauren have been fantastic and always go above and beyond what we could ever have expected. We’ve recently taken part in the worried dogs class. It was a 5 week class with the aim of understanding our dogs behaviour in a fun and easy to follow way. We’ve picked up so many tips! Our dog Leo also goes for solo walks with Lucy as he gets nervous around new people. He’s come on leaps and bounds under her guidance. From their first meeting where he was terrified of her she’s now one of his favourite people and he can’t wait to see her again. We love seeing the videos of what he gets up to on his walks and the progress he’s making. We’d recommend Bob and pals to anyone who’s looking for a reliable, knowledgeable, friendly (but straight talking!!!) company who goes the extra mile.

We took our puppy to the Bob and Pals puppy classes and it’s been a great foundation for having a well behaved dog. We hope to take some of what we have learnt to train our puppy daily and so hopefully he becomes the dog we dream of and all the hard work will pay off! Rachel and her team are always happy to answer any questions too!

Why recall is like ice cream.

Getting a reliable recall from our dogs can be an absolute nightmare; some times they come back first call, other times it can feel like shouting into an abyss. There’s no magic trick to recall training but figuring out the ice cream factor can feel pretty magic!...
