Despite months of research, visiting the breeder several times and reading as many puppy manuals as I could get my hands on, getting our puppy home was like a baptism of fire. Ok, so we’d gone for a Vizsla as our first dog, which I was later told was like buying a Ferrari just after passing your driving test. It was harder than I could have imagined, and I definitely had ‘what have I done moments’. My concern was that I didn’t really know where to start with training our gorgeous girl, and so started looking for some local classes. I found Sam and started the classes as a complete novice, with hands full, and a head full of doubts. However, over the weeks with the help of Sam and her team, I have grown so much in confidence, gained some much needed advice and now have a 6 month old puppy that is doing me proud in and out of lessons. The classes are all small and friendly, and what I like is that Sam adapts the lessons to suit each individual dog, with the aim of us all reaching the same goal. The expert tuition and support in general, has turned dog ownership into an absolute joy, from something that felt quite scary to begin with. I’d highly recommend the classes.
