Training Testimonials

"My puppy, Bertrand, took the Wanderpups foundation class with Kay and Ben. As someone who has a PhD in animal behaviour, I cannot recommend the Wanderpups class more – it was truly outstanding and a must for all new puppy owners. Kay’s classes incorporate all the latest and best research on dog behaviour and training.  In addition to the basics like sit and ‘come’ and teaching positive reinforcement and clicker techniques, Kay also covers important topics such as how to read dog body language and how to set up enrichment activities for your puppy, which is so important for their cognitive development and quality of life. There are also lots of great tips for how to deal with common puppy problems such as jumping up or picking up litter on the street. Class was managed extremely well, with visual barriers between each puppy and chewy/ licky treats and snuffle mats given to each puppy on arrival so that they could settle down in the very exciting class environment. We were also provided with extensive notes and online resources after each class so that we could work on our training at home too. The only downside to attending Wanderpups is that it was a real challenge to get home afterwards as my puppy didn’t want to leave! Thanks Kay for an awesome class!"

"As a first time puppy owner I had and still have a lot questions. Kay came to my house to meet me and my puppy Shlomi. She took time to explain everything very thouroghly and structured. In her calm way she took away my fears and worries. The puppy consultation was very helpful and I feel much more confident as a dog mum :) And Shlomi fell in love with her too"

"I would highly recommend Kay's course. From the start until the end of the course Kay and her colleagues have supported us in class and outside of class. You can tell Kay really loves dogs and she has such a positive attitude! Taking part in the course is the best thing we have done for our puppies and we have noticed such a big change in our puppies and we are so glad that we took part in the course. Thank you so much Kay!!!"

"Couldn't recommend Wanderdog enough! Kay is absolutely fantastic and such a lovely person who only brings positive vibes to your puppy.
We had Kay come over to the house and give us private 121 sessions and our little Ruby learnt so much. Very affordable and highly recommended. If you're looking to get a dog trainer. Look no further than Wanderdog!"

"Our cockapoo Remi recently completed the 6-week Wanderpups course and we highly recommend it. The trainer, Kay, was friendly and communicative, while her expertise on various issues was always helpful. We now have loads of training games and routines for Remi to work on. The socialisation opportunities provided by the course were really useful for helping him overcome his early shyness. While it is a small-group class, there is lots of 1-to-1 time to discuss particular problems or concerns. Overall a great experience!"

"I cannot recommend Wanderdog's training services highly enough. We have managed to rectify a number of training issues using positive reinforcement training techniques, and the training has not only been successful but has made me so much more in tune with my dog. She is now such a happy pooch it's a joy to have such a close bond with her. Thank you Kay Warnes for all your help advice and expertise"

"I can’t recommend Wanderdog enough! Our Cavapoo Toby has completed the puppy classes and the private intermediate classes, and has absolutely loved both!! It’s been such a great experience and we have both learnt so much! It has been so lovely seeing Toby learning and enjoying himself, he really loves his time with Kay!!"

"Kay is a lovely lady, who has helped me and my puppy so much. I had a naughty pup, who enjoyed biting me, more than his toys, but that has all changed now, and apart from the odd accident, he is house trained, this is because Kay trained me how to teach my puppy correctly. I would recommend Wanderdog, to everyone and anyone!"

We took the awesome class for puppies. Our three to four month old whippet Taco loved it and learned some really useful life skills, as well as getting the chance to socialise with lots of other pups and people. The first, humans only, session is great as well. Really informative and interesting approach to training dogs and loads of good advice and information. And generally it’s a lovely, informal environment where you don’t feel embarrassed if your pup misbehaves!

"Is it possible to give more than 5 stars?! Kay was so helpful not only with the training but helping me cope with bringing home a puppy as a single dog mum. We have done both the private training and group puppy class and she has helped set my puppy to become a confident dog. She went above and beyond with her general advice especially when my pup had a poor tummy. She passed on so much knowledge not only about training but also advice on the general well being of a dog. 😘🥰"

"A great, friendly and safe puppy course covering all the essentials to help you get off on the right foot with your new furbaby. Kay was absolutely wonderful, even providing me with email support on separate issues I was having with my puppy, which was invaluable! Hannah was also very helpful in giving me individual advice during classes."

"We attended the 6 week Wanderpups training program for pups under 6months of age. The training was comprehensive and effective week on week. Kay and her team are great with dogs. You are given individual advice and tips based on the needs of your puppy, in addition to the group training activity. Above all, my puppy had fun and ran into the Sunday morning classes with much exuberance 😊!!!."

"I took my cockapoo puppy to these classes and they were SO HELPFUL. She was able to get lots of socialisation and I was able to learn about how to train her, and how to make it enjoyable for both of us. Each class is broken down into digestible parts to work on a few training items each week. In addition, there is always a summary email and material following each session so you can work on the material in between classes. Overall, highly recommend!!."

"Our cocker spaniel, Carlos, has completed Kay’s puppy classes and we highly recommend her and the team at Wanderdog. Well structured classes with a great atmosphere, and both Carlos and I leaned a lot. Kay and her team provide brilliant coaching and excellent 1-1 training during the group sessions. Carlos loves it and we are very excited about the intermediate classes! I recommend Wanderdog to everyone, thank you, Kay and team! :)."

"Kay and Ben are wonderful trainers and a pleasure to spend our Wednesday evenings with. Jessie our 5 month old Cockapoo loved her time training and couldn't wait to go back every week. It's not just the hour's class, Kay makes sure to send through notes and additional points after every class which makes training throughout the week so much easier. Couldn't recommend highly enough.."

"Couldn't recommend puppy classes with Kay more!! The classes were super helpful and really fun for us and for the pups! Kay and Hannah were really knowledgeable and made the experience so enjoyable! They were really great at running the classes socially distanced and making sure we were all comfortable throughout. Thank you so so much, we hope we can make it back for intermediate classes if we haven't moved by then.."
