Jake, my Airedale Terrier, and I have been attending Capable Canines since he was a puppy at Puppy School. He is now 4years old and in that time he has changed from an unruly, self-centred bundle of fun into a calm, mature, well socialised young man, who is a rather larger bundle of fun. Jacky’s firm but loving tuition has been invaluable in his progress and her advice to me when Jake misbehaved or ‘refused’ to obey commands – he is a terrier after all- really helped me and gave me hope. At Capable Canines you not only get quality advice and individual help if needed, you also get the chance to attend seminars about dog related topics. Very important when you are a dog owner. I think it is very important that owners and dogs continue with their training and do not just get the awards and leave. Like people dogs are always learning and I can see me and Jake being OAP’s together and still attending classes. Keep up the good work Jacky and your team- we need you.

We have been attending obedience and now agility training for nearly two years, since Troy joined our family.

When Troy joined us, he was a rescued ten-month old collie-cross, with loads of energy and hardly any training at all. We brought him to Capable Canines four days after getting him, and he hasn’t looked back.
He has now achieved his Gold Level obedience certificate and really loves his agility classes each week. Every Friday from around 4pm, he starts to wait by the back door, ready to go visit “Auntie Jacky” for his weekly runs around the course.
We would recommend Capable Canines to anyone wanting to install some obedience into their dog. Everyone is really friendly and whether your dog takes to it straight away or takes a little time to get there, Jacky and the team will help you and your dog achieve your goal together.

Amy, Adam, & Troy.

After this week, I have taken on work that has me out of the area mid-week,so I won't be able to continue bringing Charlie to the Wednesday night classes. Great news for us but not the best time as far as Charlie is concerned. We have really enjoyed the classes and found them very helpful; I have already recommended Capable Canines to everyone who has remarked on how well-socialized Charlie has become. We will continue to reinforce his training at home, as will our pet sitter who will be looking after all of the dogs while we're at work. If my schedule changes, I will be writing to you again to beg you to make a spot for Charlie to return!

So after 2 and a half years of training at Capable Canines, Alrewas, Zeus has achieved his "Top Dog" award. The highest level of basic obedience training they do.
Sarah and I are so proud of him. When we first took him he was trying to kill all of the other dogs there!
He is still a work in progress and occasionally reacts to other dogs, but so much calmer and better behaved now than when we first rescued him.
Next step will be agility training.
So a big "thank you" to Jacky and her team who have transformed my reactive rescue GSD from an untrained aggressive dog into a well behaved "Top Dog".

Hi Jacky. Hope you don’t mind me emailing but I wanted to let you know how Chester got on this morning with his morning walk.
We went across the fields and I let him off the lead. He’s good has a sniff about but comes or waits when I ask. I noticed a dog and owner coming towards us so I put him back on the lead and we said hello. Chester said his hello and I said gently and no growling. We carried on off lead and came across another dog. This time I thought I’d keep Chester off lead to see what he did. He was fine had a sniff of dog when he looked like he might start to jump I said gently and he turned and looked at me and sat. He said hello to owners and then I got his attention and we carried on. We then came across first dog and I kept Chester off lead again and he stayed calm sniffed dog said hello to owner again and we carried on. There were lots of treats but I was really pleased with him. Feel like we are moving forward.
I also wanted to say a huge thank you. I never thought I would have the confidence to walk with him off the lead, worried he would run away. So thank you for giving me the confidence to do all we do.

Fiona & Chester
