"Leaps and Bounds puppy socialisation and training has helped my dog to be a well behaved, well rounded dog and has helped us to be better dog owners - it has been brilliant" V.Gale. Milton.
"Holly, my bright, energetic working cocker, and I have gained immeasurably from training with Mary. By following the behavioural principles she teaches in her Leaps & Bounds programme, I have become a much more confident owner and Holly a happy, fulfilled dog. I warmly recommend her."

modern, force free reward based training techniques suitable for the whole family to use.
During lessons you will learn how to teach your dog to walk on a loose lead, come when called, to sit, stand up and lie down on command, to leave and to stay. We also play games and have a question and answer question at the end of each class.
Aggression and other behavioural problems are seen on a one to one basis.
Our modern force free training methods are highly effective!
"After going to leaps and bounds with our 6 month old Jackapoo, Jax - we now have full control on and off the lead. He comes back to us when we call him away from other dogs, his heel is excellent and he, in general, seems to be a lot happier and so are we, knowing he will do as he is asked when out on walks. We can highly recommend Leaps & Bounds and Mary was excellent with Jax and also with us. Thank you!"
