What Our Customers Have Said…

Dog training newcastle

“I contacted Sue due to issues with my 9 month old puppy biting. It was a major issue and as she was getting older it needed sorting. I found Sue very straightforward and to the point which I liked. She gave easy to follow tips and practical advice and within a few days we saw a big difference in Mabel. Sue was always on the end of an email if advice needed & the videos on her membership site were extremely helpful as you could refresh the training Sue had already given. We now have a totally different dog compared to when we started. We would certainly recommend her to anyone having any issues with their dog. Hurrah for Sue for all her help.”

Ursula and Mabel Cocker Spaniel

“I wanted to send you an email saying how grateful we are for all your support. Leo is now sleeping very settled in a crate in our room, he has some cuddles on the bed and when it’s lights out, he goes into his crate no problem. He has his private space in the living room where he feels safe from our little girl. We have been doing activities to increase the bonding between Leo and our little girl and have had no incidents. Thank you for helping us keep our family together.”

Sarah and Leo Shihtzu.

“I put off getting help with my rescue dog thinking if I keep doing what I am doing, behaviour is bound to improve as he gets to know me. I learned during the very first session with Sue that  there are different options for dealing with most scenarios & understanding your dog is the most important part of any of it. Sue’s experience in dealing with a huge range of breeds, scenarios and situations was exemplary; she immediately empathised with the issues and came up with tactics and strategies to cope which were easy to comprehend and implement. The sessions were packed with hints, tips, coping mechanisms, advice on everything from environment, stresses, precursors, triggers. Sue’s deep understanding of canine psychology and physiology was obvious. The feedback report after each session was detailed and remains extremely useful to refer back to, as well as the online materials. I would not hesitate to recommend Sue to anyone wishing to change stressful scenarios with their dog(s) and the sooner you start, the sooner you will reap the benefits.”

Adrian & Sammy Border Collie

“We both thought the sessions were very helpful indeed – lots of positive encouragement & lots of practical tips & suggestions. It’s really hard work with a young dog so having assurances that we are heading in the right direction was very helpful. We have noticed a massive improvement in behaviour from Moose over the 2 or 3 months we’ve been working with you. Moose is a really sweet boy so your help in emphasising that side of his character rather than the annoying teenage behaviours was fantastic!” 

Mike, Lynne & Moose Bernese Mountain Dog

“Thank you so much for helping us understand and showing us what Freddie needed to build up his confidence following his neutering. He responds so much better when encountering situations he is unsure about because he knows we have his back now! He is so much more confident and he knows I’ll step in if it is getting too much for him.”

Dimi and Freddie Cavalier

“I have 3 dogs and had a new baby. While the girls adjusted quite well to the new arrival, my boy didn’t. I reached out to Sue at Muttamorphosis to help. I was incredibly stressed and really thought we may need to rehome him which would have upset me so much. Using the advice Sue gave us, Hugo has now accepted the baby and I feel so much happier. My house is now settled into a much calmer routine. Thankyou so much.”

Rachele, Michael and Hugo French Bulldog

Thank you Sue for all your help and direction. You immediately changed the way I needed the look  out for Indie and we have much better times now out in public spaces.”

Gary and Indie Labrador

“A big thank you from Bella and me. We really enjoyed our 4 training sessions.
I also had compliments from neighbours who noticed the change in her behaviour. I am glad that the vet recommended Muttamorphosis!”

Lydia and Bella Labrador

“After a stressful fireworks season I contacted Sue as Alfie had become very anxious and we were struggling with his excessive alert barking and his inability to settle. 

The change in him has been remarkable. He is now a relaxed and contented dog who is much better prepared to face the next firework season. Thank you so much Sue for your advice and support.”

Alison and Alfie Cockerpoo

“Thank you so much for all your guidance, knowledge and support over the past 3 months. We feel we now have the tools to deal with any further issues we may have with Archie’s behaviour, as he grows through adolescence to adulthood.”

Juliet, Martin & Border Terrier Archie

“After having 2 rescue dogs, we naively decided on Bella, a working Cocker Spaniel. Several behaviour issues later and having worked with a vet behaviourist, we were referred to Sue. Our first session gave us a daily structure to decrease stress along with activities to keep her mind busy. The following sessions gave us various plans, to focus on specific areas. The time in between sessions gave us opportunity to put the plans into practice. A follow up email report after each sessions was a useful reminder. Thankfully, Sue was always on hand to reply to a ‘call for help’ email. As a result of Sue’s friendly, non-judgemental and knowledgeable approach, we now have a much more relaxed family life.”

Michelle, Neil and Working Cocker Spaniel, Bella

“A massive thank you for all of your help over the last few months in giving us the tools to help Ozzy and us adjust to this new baby life. He’s still the same cheeky clever dog but has shown us so far he’s able to remain calm when we need it. It’s been overwhelming bringing a baby home anyway, so I can’t imagine how this would have went if we hadn’t worked with you. I’ll be recommending you to anyone I know that wants help with their doggies, but particularly those who will be welcoming a new baby.”

Lauren, Chris & Cockerpoo Ozzy

We had a few behavioural issues with the boys which meant we were not as happy as we should be as a family, just having 4 sessions with Sue has made that happy family again so thank you Sue! We would definitely recommend Sue for training your dog(s), she is so knowledgeable, friendly, and very approachable. The mix of remote and face to face worked very well and was given time in between sessions to instigate the changes and review them. Thank you, Sue, we will be back if we need more support, but our walks are so more enjoyable!”

Darren, Geoff, Angus and Buddy Westies

With Cooper being our first big dog, we didn’t realise how much work goes into a big puppy. We reached out to  Sue when he was still growing with a couple of behavioural problems and Sue made us feel at ease. Within 2 weeks we saw a massive improvement in Cooper’s behaviour when following Sue’s instructions. Cooper is a big goofball now at 2 years old and her advice has become a part of our daily routine. Sue gave us the confidence and reassurance in handling problems we didn’t know how to p reviously. Would 100% recommend.”

Melissa, Liam and Cooper Working Golden Retriever 

“Tonight I had some friends over. I was bracing myself for the worst with Ava but I could not have been more ecstatic with how things went. This could not have happened without your help. It has made me feel really positive and pure relief. I couldn’t be prouder of Ava and the transformation from her aggression to a happy welcoming pup when we have visitors. Thank you so much Sue.”

Katherine and Ava Jack Russell X Chihuahua

“We came to Sue with a 9 month old, crazy, Labrador.  His previous owner was unable to keep him as her son was terrified of the fast growing, boisterous teenager. By the time we brought him home, he couldn’t control his excitement around people or other dogs. After our initial ‘virtual’ sesion, Sue gave us tips on how to teach calm at home and once she’d met Fletcher for the first time, we learned how to begin loose leash walking, recall and getting him to focus on us. Over the next two sessions we worked around a high dog-traffic area, practising these skills. I left those sessios with the tools to feel confident in gettig Fletcher to trust and listen to me. It has been a lot of hard work, but it all comes back to the skills Sue taught me.”

Carol and Fletcher Labrador

Sue has been enormous support to us and our rescues over the years, helping us to help them have happy and  healthy lives. She has guided us on managing their individual needs, from complex reactivity to learning new skills like scent work. Our own knowledge and confidence has evolved since we have met Sue and this has helped us build strong trusting bonds with our dogs which has been incredibly rewarding for all. We cannot recommend Muttamorphosis enough!

Hilary, Fletch, Ted Collie X GSD & Lace Border Collie

Working with Sue completely changed all our lives for the better. As novice dog owners we were rather hopeless and Baxter is a bouncy exuberant dog. Sue’s patient and logical approach helped us to understand each other and change our behaviour to suit all our needs! We wholeheartedly recommend Sue, she is fantastic!”

Julia & Standard Poodle Baxter

I have used Sue with all my dogs. Her compassion and understanding of dogs and their behaviour is amazing. She is so helpful and even I as a semi-experienced dog owner, Sue spots things I have overlooked and tells you them in a unpatronising manner. I would never hesitate to ask Sue’s advice in the future and recommend her to anyone who either gets a puppy or has a dog with some issues.”

Fiona & Maddie Vizsla

“Excellent training in a great venue, and all while having lots of fun. Thoroughly enjoyable learning for me and Monty, and I can’t believe how quickly the time flew by. Thanks Sue!”

Lucinda & JRT Monty

“The venue was great, no worries about our puppa destroying anything or getting loose. Sue knows her stuff and with her guidance Rupert is coming along strides.”

Rachael, Will & Border Collie Rupert

“Harry thoroughly enjoyed his time at the puppy workshop, there was a great mix of games &  training exercises which meant lots of treats & praise! The class size was perfect, not too overwhelming for his first workshop! For ourselves, the opportunity to share experiences & lessons learnt was invaluable. We picked up some great tips for where we can improve but it was also great to get confirmation that we are heading in the right direction!” 

Claire & Harry Vizsla

“Many thanks for the class. It was lovely to see Charlie being calm around other dogs, and it has really helped me re-focus on the training too. It’s really motivating – your energy and enthusiasm is so encouraging.” 

Attending the workshop in July was a great experience for both owner and puppy. The class had been very  thoughtfully worked out with various zones set up to build upon the puppies confidence and self control as well as ways to release their energy in a safe, fun manner. The online puppy course was also followed up on with tips and support from Sue along the way to improve and progress training. The Q&A session was a great way to tackle trouble shooting and queries while bringing reassurance, this also allowed us to put crate training into practice in a new environment while the puppies took a break to rest. Sue’s pragmatic thinking and great understanding has given us an excellent start to training using positive reinforcement methods.  Using the Pre Puppy arrival package, one- to-one sessions and workshop has been invaluable!”

Joanna & Melvin, Chihuahua

“I would throughly recommend the puppy workshop especially alongside the videos. It was great for the kids to see and hear the practical advice and feedback and for us all to working in the same way. My kids have definitely gained confidence in being with our puppy. It also showed up areas that need attention and helps give focus to being with our puppy during the week. Sue is so helpful and can spot what you need right away. It’s fun for everyone!”

Anna & Brandi Yorkie X

“My husband and I attended the workshop run by Muttamorphosis with our 10 month old puppy, Cooper. We had a great day that was both interactive and informative. The puppies were well catered for with exercises to keep their attention as well as time to settle. Great day, well worth it and brilliant value for money. Sue and Jo put a lot of thought in regarding covid and we felt very safe. Thank you Sue. Highly recommended.”

Sue & Cobberdog Cooper

Relaxed atmosphere, clear demonstrations of “how to” and loved the explanations of “why”. Plenty of downtime for the pups to rest, rehydrate and recharge. Individual help with elements I found trickier. Thank you Sue and Jo for such a well-thought out workshop.”

Alison & Tibetan Mastiff Ash

“I attended a training session at Kirkley Hall with my six month old puppy. Sue has workedhard to ensure the whole area we used is covid safe which was reassuring. I could tell that sue is passionate about helping dog owners, she has such enthusiasm and knowledge. I learned reasons why my puppy was acting the way he did and how to correctly manage it in a kind manner. My puppy seemed to really enjoy himself and so did I. I came away feeling confident and more able to manage my puppy’s unwanted behaviour.”

Lind & Blue, Lurcher

“I found the session both incredibly useful and reassuring in a fantastic venue at a superb price that offers excellent value for money.”

Dickie & Lab Jet

We attended the puppy workshop at the wonderful venue at Kirkley Hall Farm. It was great to get real time feedback as well as giving puppy the training opportunity while in a new and exciting place. This gave the chance to work on creating good habits such as being able to focus on us, explore new things and also being able to settle when appropriate all while surrounded by new people, friends and smells! The content of the workshop complements the online course. There was also a theory and Q&A session to raise any specific scenarios you need advice on. The venue was perfect, nice and spacious, ideal for training as well as social distancing. The learning zones were great, our puppy particularly liked the search and play zone – lots to sniff! Sue makes all training very easy to understand and logical! We thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and hope to attend more in the future. Highly recommend!”

Emily and Labradoodle Lana

” Informative, fun and created a safe environment with no pressure to perform, neither for us nor our fur babies! Lottie is already walking well on a loose lead and is now a pleasure to take out.  She listens for her marker word and responds excellently.  We’ve acquire a long leash and will be working on recall.”

Jacqueline and Lottie Cockerpoo

The workshop was a lot of fun and informative, both for Jasper and us. It was nice to realise that others also had issues with their puppies, and we aren’t doing too badly after all!  Listening to people’s questions and your answers/ suggested fixes was a real eye opener as to how one can accidentally train the exact behaviour you’re trying to stop. Great stuff! I would certainly recommend attending to anyone.”

Jackie, David and Cavalier Jasper

“The workshop was a well structured session with lots of training opportunities, which were well supported 1-1 by Sue and her team. The venue was great, the arena gave lots of space to work with our dogs but still abide by COVID guidance, lots of hand sanitisers and masks! The Q&A session gave us the chance to benefit from Sue’s wealth of knowledge and experience for our own dog ‘issues’.  On a practical note, there was plenty of parking and outside space for doggy leg-stretching. I’d definitely recommend the workshop.”

Julia & Lab Suki

“If you want to have a long, happy and healthy relationship with your puppy, I would thoroughly recommend the Muttamorphosis workshop to get you off to the perfect start.”

Mickey and Cavapoo Oscar

“Sue really broke down the basic training principles in a simple and efficient manner.  There was plenty of time for practicing and for the dogs to interact with all the agility and enrichment equipment.  The venue was fantastic with lots of space and props for the training.  We had a great time!”

Tamara and Cattle Dog Atlas

“Sue’s training was delivered weekly with videos and clear instructions. She was always on hand, as well at the end of the phone if it went wrong and quickly steered us back on track. Our children 7 & 5 were able to follow the videos and help reinforce the correct behaviour at home. Ozzy is a pleasure and is turning into a well behaved dog who I feel I have full control over especially when my pockets are full of his favourite treats!”

Natalie & Ozzy Cocker

“I joined Sue’s online Puppy training course last year as my 1 year old dog Jasper needed some refresher training and manners. I learned a lot of new things and Jasper’s behaviour has improved. I have now got a new puppy and with the help of this course, I was able to introduce the puppy to his crate and start straight away with training correctly. I highly recommend this course.”

Steffi, Jasper & Harry Cocker Spaniels

“We engaged with Sue to help train our two rescue dogs who both had a traumatic start in their early lives leaving them with multiple issues. Sue’s patience, knowledge and understanding meant my dogs progressed quickly and after several sessions remarkable progress had been made. I can not recommend Sue enough for any aspect of dog training – thank you!”

Deborah, Lily the Border Collie & Max the Hound

“Just signed up for the Muttamorphosis Online Puppy Class. Instant crate success” 

Liz and Rufus Labrador

“Thank you so much, Sue. Your teaching is insightful & massively considerate. Your humour & dedication are infectious. We have loved every minute & will be hounding you (no pun intended) for Silver once isolation regs allow.”

Anna and Edin Cockerpoo

“I cannot recommend Sue and her intense online puppy training course enough. Sue’s videos and information packs are informative, concise and digestible. What is so clear is Sue’s passion for dogs which means she truly cares and is invested in your dog’s wellbeing and progression, and her enthusiasm makes her training really engaging for the owner too. 10/10 overall and I am hoping to make the step from online to actual classes when it is possible.”

Tom & Ruby Lab

“We’ve found your videos very informative. Brewin has responded positively to his training particularly when supported by treats. His work on and off the lead is improving and he stays close and is focussed most of the time, and responds well to recall. Thank you for all your help as we are more confident. A structure and understanding of the philosophy behind your training methods guide and support us in overcoming and developing strategies to address Brewin’s behaviour.”

Isobel, John and Brewin

“I just wanted to drop you a message to say how amazing the online course has been. Dexter has settled in great and I’m 100% convinced things would’ve been different if I hadn’t enrolled!! I’ve really enjoyed the extra info and reading behind the training. Honestly can’t thank you enough for your step by step guide but also all of your experience and insight. It’s been useful seeing other owner’s videos and feedback, some of which was also applicable to me. I will definitely be interested in further courses in future. I couldn’t recommend the course / yourself more. Please let me know how we can help spread the word during lockdown as if people get out of the course the same as what we have they’ll not be disappointed.”

Ruth and Dexter

“Having the on-line videos and feedback via Facebook has been invaluable in these difficult times and we’ll certainly be reusing them over the next couple of months as we continue our training. Thanks so much Sue, we hope that we may get to do an in-person course at some point in the future but this has got us off to a great start.”

Lucy, Duke and family. 

“We were struggling so much with our 9 month old italian spinone, Wizard, to get him to settle alone in the house. We had already seen 1 behaviourist in the past with no sucess. However after 1 video call with Sue, the results are unbelievable and looking forward to carrying on with the improvements. We can’t recommend Sue enough. Thank you.”

Dean, Anna and Wizard

“When the lockdown happened I was worried about keeping up Tallulah’s training. Thankfully, Sue’s online puppy class came to the rescue. Having access to a load of videos was really useful, but being able to share videos of my work with Tallulah with Sue and have her critique them was fantastic. While in-person training would definitely be my first choice, Sue’s online class was defintely worth it during these strange times. Thanks, Sue!”

Tom & Talulah

“Sue we have thoroughly enjoyed the 5 week online intensive puppy training. I have to admit I was a bit unsure at first at how or if on line training would work but I needed not have worried as it was great. Lots of informative videos, advice, emails & feedback on our uploaded videos has been a massive help in training our pup George. There is a lot covered in just 5 weeks but has been great for us as being so young, George has really learnt it quickly. Everyone comments how good he is, calm & well trained & your training has really helped us achieve this. I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanted to train their puppy.”

Jeanette and George

“I found the online puppy course invaluable. The videos are great to show you what you should be doing and what is possible. Personally I felt the pace of the course and number of videos to support the lessons was perfect. Being able to have speedy feedback to our posts was the icing on the cake. Hopefully Suki and I will be able to attend the next level in person. Thank you Sue, from us both.”

Julia and Suki

“We approached Sue McCabe (Muttamorphosis) at the point when we knew we desperately needed help with our very anxious and reactive chihuahua. Walks had become a nightmare trying to cope with reactions to unknown dogs and her anxiety around even passing unknown people had become extremely challenging. After only a couple of sessions we began to see a huge improvement.  Sue has taught us how to alter our own behaviour in order to help both of our dogs to change their own expectations surrounding a particular trigger or situation by using a calm and upbeat approach and rewarding reactions appropriately.

We have recently had an on screen WhatsApp session as we cannot work with Sue in person just now due to the Covid 19 lockdown.  This session was very positive and Sue’s enthusiasm and ability to motivate and share her knowledge was just as skillful in this situation.  We are looking forward to continuing with our WhatsApp sessions throughout the lockdown until we are able to meet in person once again.  We are very confident that with her tuition, our walks in the future are going to be much less stressful.  We would wholeheartedly recommend Sue at Muttamorphosis to anyone who needs help with training or managing an anxious dog.”

Jan & Barry Marshall

“Working with Sue has made such a difference to us and our dog. She has given us the skills and the confidence to help develop our big and boisterous rescue pup into a nearly socially acceptable pet! Sue listened carefully to our specific needs and put in place an individualised and practical training programme that has transformed our relationship with our furry companion.

Due to the current social distancing restrictions Sue suggested that our session could be via a whatsapp video call, we were a little unsure but decided to give it a go. It turned out to be invaluable and very timely; we were still able to demonstrate our handling skills so that Sue could continue to give us feedback as well as seeing the progress that we have made. Throughout the call Sue was giving clear instructions and she was able to assess where we currently were and suggest the next steps for us to take. Sue followed this up with a detailed email clarifying exactly what we needed to work on and directed us to video links to help us.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Sue and we are thrilled with the results. We have without doubt ‘noticed the change in our dog’ but equally importantly in ourselves as well. Thank you Sue.”

Catherine, Claire and Lupo

“I highly recommend Muttamorphosis in whichever service is required. I have had Sue’s help in training 2 of my dogs over the years. Due to the coronavirus our last ‘Meeting’ for our one to one behaviour consultation was carried out by video call. Although, I was a little unsure of how it would go, I shouldn’t have worried, however, as it’s was completely comfortable and just the same as it would have been if we were in the same place.

Sue has a lovely way of making me feel at ease and more confident with my dog training, despite the fact that I’m more often than not, part of the problem!
With my new dog I have had some very difficult behavioural problems to deal with which made me incredibly distressed and almost regretful of taking on my new dog. Thankfully, Sue has a wealth of knowledge and experience and has been able to explain my dog’s behaviour and give advice and training to both me and my dog. The transformation in my life is just amazing.

Alison & Belle

“This week I had a facetime session with Sue from Muttamorphosis to help with puppy training. I was not sure how this would work, but Sue was fabulous. We talked through some of the issues we have been having and Sue was able to give me step by step guidance, followed up by a detailed E-mail with links and videos to help me understand further. Sue even did a demonstration of one of the techniques for me.

I felt I got as much out of the session as I would have done face to face. It was possible for me to show Sue what Lottie was up to during the session. As always Sue was friendly, knowledgeable and hugely reassuring. During this time of isolation I think this service is invaluable, it has helped us to have a well behaved and well stimulated dog to keep us entertained.”

Ginette and Lottie

“Given the current pandemic we arranged a video consultation with Sue to get tips on preparing Cooper for the arrival of a baby. We have worked  1 on 1 with Sue over the past few years, since Cooper was a puppy on a variety of issues and we honestly have a different dog who can navigate through day to day life with more confidence because of the advice and support Sue has provided. This mainly lead to change in our thinking and approach.

The video consultation was no different where Sue provided some really valuable tips & followed up with a report with guidance and resources -Sue holds a great amount of knowledge and experience, her ability to engage and equip us with modern positive training techniques has allowed us to achieve all we set out to achieve when we first got in touch. While you’re at home we fully recommend getting in touch with Sue to arrange a video consultation regardless of the age or issue you are facing and get training now, there isn’t anything more satisfying than seeing the change in your dog.”

James, Melissa & Cooper

“When I was pregnant I contacted Sue for some advice on how I could prepare my 2 Tibetan Mastiff’s, Bailey & Jenson for the arrival of our baby. I was hoping to limit the stress that this would put on them and also ensure we took the relevant steps to make sure we would all live together safely.

Sue gave us so much advice including lots that we didn’t even think about. This was then followed up with a detailed email which included everything we had discussed.  This helped prepare us and the dogs for our new arrival.

We implemented the advice and training that we were given prior to our baby being born. This really did help once we came home with the baby. The dogs were relaxed really quickly and were used to everything before we came home so this relieved their anxiety. It also helped me as I wasn’t stressed or nervous with how the dogs were going to deal with the situation. I would highly recommend Sue for post-natal dog training.”

Nicola, Andrew, Bailey and Jenson

“Before we started working with Sue, we would dread dog walks with our big goofy guy Arthur. We have loved him since day 1, but as he grew he became harder and harder to handle while we were out with him. This got to the point where Emily would regularly come back from his walks on the verge of tears because of how difficult it was to walk him (he isn’t much smaller than she is and he is a very strong boy!)

We were absolutely desperate to enjoy our walks with our lovely boy and so we decided to reach out to Sue to help us with his training. And we can honestly and wholeheartedly say it has been the best thing we have ever done with him.

Not only have we seen his behaviour massively improve on his walks, but also around other dogs, in the house and around other people. 6 months ago we would worry about taking him out with us to dog friendly cafes and pubs, to see friends and even on local walks…now we get compliments about how well behaved he is when we are all out together!

It didn’t come without hard work, ups and downs, but Sue was there to support and guide us all the way through and we could not have done it without her! The only reason we have had to stop is because we are buying a house, but as soon as we are moved in we are sure Arthur will be as excited as we are to get back to his training and learning even more.

Working with Sue to help us understand our dog and helping him to understand us has been truly life changing. We no longer go on walks worrying how Arthur might misbehave, but with excitement to enjoy our time out together whether it is in the countryside, on the beach or at the local cafe. If you are considering working with Sue, it will be one of the best decisions you will ever make with your dog! “

Jack, Emily and Arthur

Our 3 year old Cocker Spaniel, Arlo, is the most affectionate, biddable boy we could wish for. He is a much-loved family member, always eager to please and is a joy to spend time with but, since his early months, he has been quite nervous. This was exacerbated by two run-ins with aggressive/out of control dogs when he was 18 months old which left him very reactive when walked on the lead. It had got to the stage where neither of us were particularly enjoying our walks together as he was reacting not just to other dogs but also to humans and I believe I was passing on my stress to him when encountering these situations, which only made matters worse! I contacted Sue and booked a Behaviour Package of 4 hours. Following completion of a detailed questionnaire  we met with Sue for the first session. We talked through our issues then took Arlo for a walk on his normal route. Sue’s understanding and insight into what makes our dogs tick is vast. After only one hour I felt a lot more relaxed as Sue reassured me this problem was not unsolvable, though I did feel  a wee bit guilty that I simply had not realised to what extent Arlo had been affected by the incidents when he was younger. Every time we met, Sue gave me an action plan and tips for training with Arlo. She followed each session up with emails and links to training videos and information. Whilst I think Arlo will always be a bit reactive on the lead, he’s certainly less anxious on our walks and I am no longer dreading them! I think many of us are under the misconception that it is our dog being trained when, in fact, it is a shared process between us humans and our companions. Sue has given me the tools and knowhow to build a stronger and better relationship with our lovely boy, making us all happier and more confident. Thank you Sue; I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you and will be straight back in touch should we have any further issues!

Andrea and Arlo

Just wanted to thank you for your excellent training classes which both Geno and I looked forward to attending each week. Your relaxed approach and small class sizes made the training very personal and lots of fun. We picked up lots of tips and good practice along the way. Geno started with the puppy class and has just passed his Bronze Good Citizen award. I would definitely recommend Sue and both training classes anyone.

Karen and Geno

Sue has been absolutely brilliant  in helping us with our two Yorkie pups. Very easy to engage with and she is bursting with ideas and enthusiasm to help any problem. Would definitely recommend her to help you get the most out of your relationship with man’s best friend.

Tracy & Rob Webber

We had Sue help me with my nearly 3 years old cockapoo who was having a lot of difficulty with fear aggression. After using 2 previous behaviour workers I was losing a bit of hope we would ever be able to change this, as well as this having a knock on effect with my confidence when walking him. After the first session it was clear that there was a drive and enthusiasm to change his behaviour and also to help me understand him more in order to help. She gave me great pointers and knowledge in order to understand how to respond but also how to build my confidence with him and allow him to have trust in me. Don’t get me wrong we are nowhere near where I would like us to be but with help and support, Sue has given me the tools to start my journey with my boy and continue our development and training!

Jamie Sanderson

We have a completely different dog already! Us understanding Lucy’s needs has made a massive difference. Mealtimes are no longer a nightmare. The downtime is a revelation. There’s a lot less frustrations in the house and we can’t thank you enough. I can’t wait to see what happens as we keep on learning about Lucy and training her to be the fantastic dog I know she is.

Wilson Family

“I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done for us and Skye, she’s so much more relaxed and happy, it’s lovely to see and we wouldn’t have got here without you.”

Val Crosby & Skye

“Just to say a big thank you for all your wonderful advice and help by guiding myself and Malcolm with Molly. We found that getting a puppy at our time of life was harder than we expected but with your guidance and advice we will get there and start to enjoy our new family member. It is our turn to put into practice the teaching that you have given us  Also the notes that you sent after each class will come in handy for us to recall what we learnt. Through our daughter Amanda introducing us to Muttamorphosis we would not have known where to turn, but along came Sue our saviour, THANK YOU, we will certainly recommend Mutttamorphosis to anyone who needs help with their pets.  I have sent a photograph of Molly taking a well earned rest from puppy class. Thanks again Sue and I am sure we will be looking at other classes as and when Molly is ready.”

Norma & Malcolm Cowen

“Just wanted to drop you a line to say a huge thank you for all of the training with Lola so far. Your expertise and enthusiasm is invaluable. We are really looking forward to carrying on in June.”

Baker Family

“Thanks Sue for all your help, training and advice. We all think Scooby got a lot out of his classes”

Rosemary Jones

“Sue and Muttamorphosis came highly recommended from several people when we brought home our Border Collie puppy, Denver. We quickly signed up to the puppy classes, but as we haven’t shared a home with a dog in a while, we rapidly realised we would benefit from some extra guidance so booked a few home training visits too. These focused sessions have proved to be invaluable and a perfect complement to class. With this extra direction we are now very confident we have our pup on the right track, but most importantly, that that we have been personally trained and given the right tools to achieve great results. Sue works at a million miles an hour and is a whirlwind of positivity- after just an hour’s session we are all exhausted – dog and owner alike! I thoroughly recommend these services as it accelerates results and builds a great foundation together.”

“We just wanted to say a massive thank you for all of the help you’ve given us with Dakota over the last couple of months. She has improved so much in the short space of time and we hope she will continue to do so. Your advice has been fantastic and we really appreciate it.”

Holly and Klee Kai Dakota

Sam“We had found Sue’s puppy classes very helpful so she was the obvious person to turn to when Sam’s poor recall starting making life miserable. Sue’s one to one sessions were invaluable. She was realistic about what we could achieve and suggested lots of ways of making Sam more owner-orientated. She also emailed summaries which were great to refer to in the weeks between the lessons. We still use a long line in new or particularly challenging places, but walks are now enjoyable again and we haven’t had a stand off where Sam won’t come back for ages. Sam even passed his Silver Good Citizen Award at Easter – something we never thought he would manage. We would have no hesitation in recommending Muttamorphosis to any dog owner at any stage. Thank you Sue.”

Kathryn and Doodle Sam

Zeus“We would like to let you know that we found you very knowledgeable and helpful. Your advice has been manageable for us, well explained and is clearly specific to Zeus and his particular issues rather than general advice that we could read anywhere. We found your manner approachable and none judgmental (often a problem when owning a reactive dog) and we felt a huge relief that we’d found someone who was going to be able to help us. You may remember we’re on to our 4th trainer and have struggled with the non-positive methods and un-achievable advice we’ve been given.”

Abby & Eurasier Zeus

Florrie“We met Florrie at Morgan’s Rescue in Alston. She had been rescued from Ireland
together with her three big brothers.
he’d started to react to other dogs.
We had a consultation with Sue after filling out her questionnaire, followed by a coaching session involving her four impressive dogs.
Sue was able to explain why Florrie had started to react this way and what we should do. And two months on it’s working. Florrie is learning to confidently pass other dogs in the street, in the park and on the beach, on and off the leader. And we are much better equipped to manage these situations.
We recommend that you contact Sue if you have a similar problem.”

hugo“Thanks so much for your help and expertise we ALL got so much from the classes and can’t wait to get started on the next set.”

Amanda and Hungarian Vizsla Hugo

jess“Thanks for the fantastic sessions with our (feral!) collie, Jess. I really saw an improvement in her behaviour and thought the clicker training was a marvellous system; much easier to practise than I had imagined. She has since been and enjoyed a visit to the pub and is greeting other dogs more calmly when on the lead. I think she also enjoyed the stimulation of the exercises in class and at home.”

Cathy & Collie Jess

Lucy“What a brilliant experience both myself and Lucy have received from Sue. Lucy has become a calm puppy who is eager to learn. She is calm around other dogs yet sociable, and I feel confident in taking Lucy into any environment. The course was extremely informative and I’m now looking forward to the next training stage.”

IMG_20150716_205437678“Big thanks Sue for all your help & guidance throughout your Puppy socialisation & Foundation caninecitizenship courses. Both Cinder & I enjoyed your classes & the chance to meet other puppies & their people alike. I’ve gained a valuable insight to how Cinder sees the world & learnt how to assist her in developing self control & good manners. Cinder overcame her fear of descending the stairs & improved her focus & concentration over the weeks whilst attending your classes all thanks to your knowledge & experience. Highly recommended & much appreciated. “

Sarah & rescue pup Cinder

“Lily wasn’t the most attentive of dogs as she wanted to play with the other pups and their owners. However, I persevered with her – and so did Sue – and she was actually learning, though she didn’t show it initially. I listened and watched and managed to get Lily to do all of the exercises when at home. It was certainly worth taking her to the course because she has calmed down lots and I’ve learned how to control her in most situations. Thanks again Sue.”

Hazel Lawson & Staffie Lily

photo“Just to say thank you for the brilliant puppy class that I came to on 25th July with Monty. I feel like we both learnt a great deal and it was far more informative than previous classes I’d attended with my spaniel ( not yours I might add !).”

Carrie Walker & Dachshund Monty

Barney“Barney was a 10 month old troublesome pup with behavioural issues & little-to-no training when we re-homed him from his previous owners. We spent all the hours in the day attempting to train the behaviour problems out of him, however all the typical training methods appeared to have little positive impact on the undesirable characteristics that had developed in his previous environment. One day, however, we came across Sue McCabe & Muttamorphosis by chance.  Sue visited Barney after we completed our questionnaire & provided on-the-spot corrective guidance on Barney’s handling – which he responded to immediately. We have now attended classes for five weeks & Sue McCabe is one of the most inspiring trainers we have ever met & her methods are second-to-none. Her approach is supported with facts & logical reasoning; making training easy to digest & follow, particularly from your dog’s perspective. We would highly recommend anyone to enrol into one of Sue’s classes, whether you have an eight week old pup or an adolescent dog (with or without behavioural problems), as you will emerge with a first-class, well-mannered dog that will be welcome anywhere.  This is the best five weeks we have had together as a family & we have learnt so much that we have enrolled into the Bronze Level of The Kennel Club Good Citizen Award Class.”

Widnell Family with Barney Cockerpoo.

“As a dog walker and pet sitter I have learnt so many valuable lessons and feel I am prepared for any eventuality. I feel this course should be essential to anybody who looks after other people’s animals! Emma delivered the course with great humour and interest too.”

“Thank you for your time and very good advice for Harvey. We appreciate all your help. We will recommend you to anyone needing help with their dog.”

Marshall Family with Cocker Harvey

Phoebe‘The main goal was to be able to let her off the lead to have a good run around, which we have definitely achieved. Thanks again for all your help and giving me the skills (and confidence) to let Phoebe off lead.’

Lucy & Jane with Greyhound Phoebe

DIGGER 3‘A huge thank you for yesterdays class.  We thoroughly enjoyed it and have already seen a huge improvement in Digger’s behaviour in just 24hrs. We will continue with his training and be able to enjoy him more.  Thanks again for everything, we will definately reccomend you to friends. We wish we had met you 7 weeks ago!’

Nicky & Andrew Burton with Tibetan Mastiffs Bailey & Jensen

Spike!‘Thank you Sue for the excellent puppy training course, both Spike & I greatly benefited from your patience, advice & guidance. Spike is my first big dog &having previously owned terriers, I want to try to ensure he is a dog that everyone likes – & not one to be avoided. You have helped me have a clearer understanding of how dogs learn & why they behave as they do. I will have no hesitation in recommending you to other dog owners who are in need of support in training their pet. Thankyou.’

Simon Finch & Husky Spike

‘A big thank you for helping us through your puppy socialisation & foundation courses which we recently completed. Our beautiful Staffy George has really benefited from attending your classes and he is a pleasure to take out on walks & visits to the pub! We will certainly recommend you to anybody looking for puppy classes.’

Martin & Pam Howlett with Staffie George

‘We found all your comment, tips & exercises really useful & thankfully Izzy is smart enough to pick them up really quickly even if we are beginners. We’ve enjoyed watching Izzy & ourselves develop in the class & at home over the last few weeks. Your positive energy & enthusiasm really makes us want to work harder &  train longer to make sure Izzy reaches her potential!’

Steven & Kathryn with Coton Du Tulear Izzy

‘Dotty was a nervous seven week old German Shepherd when I first got her. Although I have had dogs in the past I had never attended training classes before, but decided we might both benefit from the experience.  I have seen Dotty make so much progress over the past twelve months & am ever grateful I found Muttamorphosis & Sue. I took Dotty to the Puppy Socialisation sessions to see how we would get on and the sessions were so rewarding and enjoyable that once we had finished, we signed ourselves up for the Puppy Foundation Course & then progressed to the Kennel Club Good Dog Scheme Bronze Course.  Dotty has gained much from socialising & training with other dogs, as a result her behaviour and confidence has much improved. Sue is a great tutor and both Dotty & I have benefitted from her guidance and advice. Each session is also a lot of fun! The Bronze Course has quite a demanding test at the end… and Dotty passed the test. We have now signed up for the Silver Course. The Muttamorphosis courses are well run, in a nice location & are great value for money. I think the vast majority of dog owners would benefit from the courses. I highly recommend them. If you are like I was, a bit of a sceptic, I urge you to have a go.  You will be very surprised at how much you &  your dog take from these courses.’

Graham Pears & Dotty GSD

‘We have been taking our dogs to Sue’s classes for over a year. Although I’d trained a German Shepherd before this time I took on two puppies at the same time.  I don’t think I’d realised what I’d taken on.  However from the off Sue offered really good advice on what we should be doing to make sure we’d have two well adjusted dogs.  Thanks to her advice (often tough) we now have to beautiful well natured dogs.  Both have been through & passed puppy, puppy foundation and Good Citizen Bronze – & as we have trained them separately I’ve attend the classes twice.  I couldn’t recommend Sue more highly – she is brilliant trainer, the classes are good fun, with great advice.  I have two large Husky crosses that are wilful but because of the classes they are well behaved, are even more beautiful & a pleasure to have & I put that down to Sue’s classes’.

Chris Pegg & Lab X Huskys Zeus & Apollo

‘Muttamorphosis dog training classes make’s life so much easier for you and your new pup, and is also so much fun and very rewarding!  Thanks Sue!’

Claire, Donna & Macey Cocker

‘… after completing both the KC Good Citizen Puppy & Bronze courses with Sue, Belle has turned into a lovely calm dog most of the time but being 10.5 months old she still has her mad moments! The courses are brilliant for helping to structure the training that you do. Having 7 or 8 other dogs and owners to help share the experience with is great as everyone has good and bad weeks so you laugh together as the dogs decide that they don’t want to do what you are telling them. Sue is brilliant at helping you to get things back on track and encourage you when you feel disheartened!  We would definitely recommend Sue to anyone as she is a marvel with dogs’

‘Before we had Sue’s helps Buster had to be in the middle of everything, literally! With advice from Sue, Buster is now a much more settled dog & is happy to not always be centre of attention.  This has made our life with him so much more enjoyable.

The most invaluable help we have had from Sue was from when she accompanied us on a walk, to give us guidance on letting Buster loose! With the tips from Sue, and Buster’s new found best play thing, we can now let him off his leader to run around & burn off some energy.  We all love nothing better than going on a nice long walk & seeing Buster running round happy, this also makes things at home a lot easier as he is a lot calmer.’

Julie & Darren Burns with Patterdale Buster

‘A brilliant dog 1st aid course covering everything you would need to know, from saving your dog’s life to learning to put a bandage on an ear.  Fantastic day.’

Gail O’Donnell, A1 Pretty Paws, Gateshead.

‘Many thanks to you and Emma for a fantastic course today.  Loved meeting the gorgeous canine helpers too!  I have recommended the course to some other dog walkers I know’

Janine Fairbrother

‘Overall it was a really good class which I enjoyed.  The nurse was an excellent speaker, fluid and friendly, and I would recommend the course to any dog owner and especially to any dog professional.  Keep up the great work.’

Jayne Lockey

‘Glad I attended the first aid course.  I’d encourage anyone living or working with dogs to go along to the next one.  Now I’m aware of what to do, and just as importantly what NOT to do in an emergency.  Emma explained the dos and don’ts and whys and wherefores very clearly, and the course booklet is a welcome reference guide.’

Deborah Collins

‘I truly enjoyed the course and it was great to learn lots of new things and know that I may now be able to save my pets life if necessary! Everyone was very friendly and the day was enjoyed by everyone including your dogs. Thank you for the opportunity and hopefully this experience will help me gain the job I really want working with dogs in the long run.”

Suzanne Metcalff

‘If you don’t have a clue about first aid for dogs, then target this course!’

David Holmes, Diamond Dog Behaviour

‘The First Aid Course was very informative and useful.  I hope I never need to use what I have learnt at the course, on Cody or any other dog but I am very greatful incase I ever do.  There was a lovely friendly atmosphere and Emma kept the whole day interesting.  Many thanks to Sue for arranging it and Misty for allowing us to prod and poke her!’

Carole Harrison

‘I thought that the Canine First Aid Course was very enlightening and my friend Diane and I very much enjoyed it. We learned a lot on the course and some things that we were told we were amazed about and it was very worthwhile to be there and have these things brought to our attention.  We found Emma very good and she explained things very thoroughly to us which is good, as on a lot of courses you come away thinking ‘what was all of that about?’ but not on this one.  It was very well presented and everyone was made to feel part of the course.  Please give Misty another piece of chicken from us as she was wonderful yesterday, letting us bandage her leg and ears.  She deserves it!’

Pauline Brown

‘Thanks for providing such a valuable and professional course. As a pet care services provider first aid knowledge is invaluable as no owner would forgive me if their animal suffered in a health emergency. I now feel confident and fully equipped to deal with any first aid situations I may encounter thanks to the courses great balance of information and practical demonstrations.’

Rob Adair

‘I wanted to write and let you know how pleased I am with the Muttamorphosis classes. Polly and I both enjoyed the classes a lot. Many people have commented on how quickly Polly’s behavior has improved, and I’ve noticed a big change in her myself. I was particularly impressed with how all the dogs get individual attention. Being a terrier Polly is very excitable and full of energy, and the individual tips you’ve given me have made a big difference.’

Ann M Wilson & JRT Polly

‘Just to say, thank you again for your very useful course. It has certainly made him a much better behaved teenager and everyone comments on how good he is. I have recommended you to someone who was asking about dog training and will do so again, if asked.’

Stephen Lightley & Whiskey Lab

‘I must say you have transformed both of us – and the family . I never thought I would have a border terrier who would “leave it” when faced with a bag of chips on a walk . She was on a lead but it’s a good start.She walks well on a lead , sits when I meet people and loves to play with us. She is quite polite to other dogs. And gentle with my cats and does not even notice the guinea pigs , all a result of training and advice from yourself. We have a new saying in our house when faced with any thing new with the dog “ What would Sue say?” and Ruth will tell me. Your name has been quoted so often even my son talks about you. When sitting in the car talking to his friend who has a dog  I heard him say “ Angus you must never set your dog up to fail. That’s what Poppy’s trainer says.”  not bad for a 3 year old.’

Victoria Daniels

“We can’t recommend Sue highly enough.  Her classes have been a vital part of Bertie’s development -and he adores her!  She provides you with the tools to bring out the wonderful potential in your dog; the improvement in all our puppies by the end of the Bronze course was amazing.”

Cath Amos & Golden Doodle Bertie” We have been to Sue’s (Muttamorphosis) clicker classes and had a couple of home visits/private trainingsessions. Sue is friendly, professional and enthusiastic, she whole-heartedly throws herself into working with the dogs and really seems to have a special way with them.

The clicker classes were enjoyable, helpful, with a relaxed atmosphere, great handouts and fun for the dogs. Since working with Sue, Kizzie’s recall has improved massively and we have been able to use the tools that Sue has taught us to teach Kizzie further skills and commands.

I would recommend Sue to anyone and would have no hesitation in using Sue’s services again.”

Dianne, Megan & Melissa Burnett

‘Just wanted to tell you we enjoyed your class, and we have seen a real improvement in Dexter, and will recommend you to our friends.’

Bev & Jason

“We cannot  thank Sue enough for putting her skills and extensive knowledge to good use in transforming our Springer, Alfie, from being a hyper, unruly puppy into a lovely well-behaved dog. Sue’s training and guidance have been invaluable – you just have to look at her own dogs to appreciate her love of animals and enthusiasm for her profession.  We highly recommend Sue and the services of Muttamorphosis.”

SJ Newcastle

“We were very impressed with the way our puppy became a socialised and (nearly!) well behaved dog, all thanks to both your puppy class and more recently clicker class.  I have, and will continue to do so, recommended especially the puppy class, to friends.  Also – it’s good to know that if behaviour problems appear we always know that you will be able to help to sort them out.”

Avery Family

“We bought a Border Terrier puppy that turned out to be a bit highly strung and very nervous of other dogs. Attending Sue’s puppy and clicker classes equipped us with some great techniques and confidence to turn our dog into a well trained and confident adult. We love having a terrier that comes back when called. We valued the experience so much that we now have our new BT puppy in Sue’s puppy class.”

D. Collins

‘Muttamorphosis have provided us with an excellent, friendly, flexible and reliable dog-walking service. I have felt confident about giving Sue access to our home when we are out, and also have complete confidence in Sue’s ability to look after our dog. Our old dog always comes back with a smile on her face and a spring in her step!’

‘Our puppy is so well behaved and a delight to have around the house and I know we can take no credit for this, Sue’s help and training has been invaluable. A wonderful website + service and we would recommend her wholeheartedly!’

Kelly Bowers

‘Two home visits to help me begin training a rescue dog which was extremely helpful in getting started with a dog who had no previous training at all. Lots of help and suggestions to my questions by e-mail. Subsequently joined a training course for several months and worked on various behaviours. Very good handouts and general advice and support.’

Irmgarde Horsley

‘I have two Cocker Spaniels, Lola and Millie who have both been to the puppy classes that Sue (Muttamorphosis) runs. I found the classes to be fun and informative and the dogs certainly had a good time! As a result I have two well behaved dogs that are a pleasure to own. I would definitely recommend these classes to anyone who has a puppy or is thinking of getting one in the near future.’


‘My dog took to Sue right away. He’s gone through a lot of changes in his life and it’s great to see him so happy and at ease with her. Thanks!’

‘Sue is a star! My work pattern is erratic and she is always happy to fit Buddy into her already busy schedule. He can be a challenging dog, but she has had a positive impact on his behaviour, and he is much easier to handle. The ultimate test is Buddy’s reaction when he sees her!’

Jeni Ling

‘Harvey is doing really well in most areas. We have found the clicker training method and your advice amazingly successful. Within the house he is such a different dog to when we first got him. He sits and looks at us to have a door opened or to get his meals. He loves training sessions. Friends can’t believe the commands he understands…I dread to think what life with him would have been like if we hadn’t been to your classes.’

Pete & Vic Smith

Bracken‘Sue has been walking Bracken our 41/2 year old Golden Retriever for just 3 months now, but during that time she has managed to overcome our dog’s fear of cars. Bracken used to dig her heels in and need physically lifting into the boot. Now she will leap into Sue’s van without hesitation. Bracken obviously loves her walks with Sue and always comes back happy, exhausted, wet and sometimes muddy – just what an energetic retriever needs. From an owner’s point of view, Sue is reliable, trustworthy and extremely accommodating. We cannot recommend her highly enough.’

Chris & Carole

‘We have used Muttamorphosis services on three occasions – behaviour support, puppy classes and clicker training. We would highly recommend Sue for her knowledge, support and understanding of dogs. Sue has been a great help to our family and has also introduced us to rescue dogs which has now resulted in us having a wonderful pet.’

The Fisher Family

Turi Bidetta‘I can’t recommend Sue’s classes highly enough, if you follow the course through you can’t fail to notice a huge difference in your dog. She teaches (amongst other things) how to get the dog to focus on you when out and about which means they are an absolute pleasure to walk. Sue makes the classes easy to understand and each dog (and owner) is dealt with as an individual. She is always happy to give help and advice if you are having problems with things that are not covered in class and you never feel rushed. If you ever need confirmation of the fantastic things that can be achieved with Sue’s methods you just need to see her beautiful collie Sage in action!’

Katy Bidetta

‘Through this site and other people’s recommendations and experiences, I found Sue McCabe, who looks after my dog Taz while I am at work. Sue has an excellent and natural ability with animals and I was immediately reassured by my dog’s reaction to her when we first met. Now when I drop him off, he happily rushes through the front door to meet with his friends for a day of fun and games. My job demands a great deal of flexibility and Sue always manages to work things around in order for my dog to be kept looked after and safe while I am away. I hope my posting helps other dog owners to find excellent care for their dog and peace of mind for themselves as I have found with Sue.’

Magnolia Kannava

Ebony Clarkson‘Sue has been an absolute godsend! Ebs is a different dog, very settled, happy and more confident with other dogs since making friends with Sue and the other dogs she walks. I no longer feel guilty about leaving Ebs when I go to work as I know she gets an excellent walk every day. Sue is extremely professional and is excellent with the dogs. A service I cannot do without.’

Sam Clarkson

‘Ruby and I owe a big THANK YOU to Sue’s skill and patience. Ruby is a 3-year-old bull terrier who, after having four homes within a 9 month period, came to me with some peculiar habits – some of which were distressing for her and me. They ranged from fear and lack of socialisation, to aggression and ‘tantrums’. The one-to-one consultation, at home allowed Sue to see Ruby in her own environment, giving her the background needed to devise a training program for Ruby and I that is fun for us, easy to implement and takes into account our needs, lifestyle and Ruby’s idiosyncrasies! She has supported us offering advice, guidance and praise at every turn. Sue has made a small dog (and her owner!) very happy! I would recommend Sue unreservedly.’

Helen Davison (and Ruby)

Kenny Dryden‘Sue has made me feel happy about being at work during the day, my dog gets more exercise now than if I had been at home all day! Sue makes sure he has enough water and if I have any worries or queries Sue is more than happy to help. She is very professional and has a very special way with dogs. I would not hesitate to recommend her.’

Rachel Dryden

‘I had complete confidence in Sue when she walked our two spaniels for a week recently. She took the time to come out with me before to find out how they behaved and the commands they were used to and generally get to know them. She is very professional but also obviously a great dog lover and my dogs loved her back!’

Sarah Bates

‘I really cannot recommend Sue highly enough. She has been regularly walking my springer spaniel Jay for the last 9 months. She really is quite wonderful with dogs and her abilites as a dog trainer have not only ensured that she has wonderfully trained dogs my 12 year old dog (who is completly deaf) is now trained to respond to hand signals. It is such a help to know the dog gets not only regular walks but also lots of fuss and attention and comes back happy and exhausted! We were also fortunate enough to have her to look after jay while we were away and had absolute peace of mind about how she was being looked after.’

Valerie Vaughan
