“The group, course and Rebecca have been fantastic. Highly recommend. If ever I need advice or concerned everyone is so friendly and willing to help especially Rebecca who goes the extra mile every time. The course was very informative and perfect way to help train my new puppy and have had many people praise how good he is from such a wrong age. Thank you for everything!”
