    I couldn’t recommend Jon Davison & Canine Assist more - please head over and visit his page if you have ANY struggles with your dog, old or new, puppy or grown up.
    Jon’s methods come from a HUGE wealth of knowledge and accreditation (he’s studied dogs and dog behaviour for the last 20 years or so) and so understands what you may be going through and HAS A SOLUTION FOR YOU!
    Don’t struggle alone - be the best owner for your dog and let Jon help you on that journey.

  • Leanne Simpson (Tuesday, April 27 21 01:30 pm BST)

    I got in touch with Jon and from the moment he answered the phone ( during lockdown) we had found the one 5* dog trainer in our eye. We can’t recommend him enough! He give some amazing things to work on including links to help us of videos of himself with his pride and joys (dogs). Soon as Jon knew he could get back to work he booked us in. Jon gives you plenty of options of training packages to choose from and at an amazing price. He is worth his weight in gold. We had our first one to one session and the progress we have seen from our puppy from that day moving forward is amazing.

  • Jane - Elizabeth Taylor (Tuesday, April 20 21 08:30 am BST)

    I’m impressed! Jon has had years of experience training and working with dogs and it shows. Speaking to him you can tell he keeps up to date with the latest dog training techniques and understands how dogs minds work. Not outdated methods but an approach that works and literally had my Golden Retriever, Henry, eating out of his hand! He accomplished so much within the 2 hour consultation and even though I’ve read books and watched videos on dog training he taught me so much. I was amazed to see such a fast response and great results that I can build on over the next 8 weeks through the resources Jon sends me and the ongoing support he offers. I feel confident that Henry’s jumping up, door charging and resource guarding will be helped.
    If you have any training needs or behavioural issues with your dog, call Jon at Canine Assist! You won’t be disappointed!

  • Mabel Labrador-Litchfield (Friday, April 16 21 08:55 am BST)

    Highly recommended. I’d tried various trainers previously but Jon was like a breath of fresh air. Simple instructions (for dog and owner).
    Easy to repeat once he’s gone.
    And more importantly great results.
    Thank you.

  • James Harvey (Friday, April 16 21 08:55 am BST)

    Jon is clearly a professional. Very patient and understanding with you and your dogs needs. I had the 4 session package and was perfect!

  • Andrea Hill (Friday, March 26 21 10:12 am GMT)

    From the moment Jon came to the door his training of our 6mnth rescue Cockapoo had begun. He very quickly got a measure of our dog and the appropriate way how to gain her trust as she's quite anxious and skittish. With clever play and a very calm approach she began to settle and he could move on to assess our main concerns resource guarding , lead work, and how to handle difficult situations. It was such a full session we are grateful that Jon follows up what we covered in an email and things we can continue working on at home. The initial meeting was to see if we were comfortable with his way of training which was a resounding Yes. !! His patience with her and the no pressure approach just reinforcing with praise and treats is absolutely the right way for us . His experience and insight is impressive and we can't wait to organise further sessions. Jon was recommended by a friend and I would have no hesitation in doing the same.

  • Dean & Rachel (Friday, March 26 21 10:11 am GMT)

    Jon came for the first consultation with our 3 Month Puppy this Morning. It was truly amazing to watch Jon with Lester. Jon is AMAZING and BRILLIANT. A lot to take in, but Jon was very personable, friendly and inspiring - We can not Thank You enough Jon .

  • Rachel McInally (Friday, March 26 21 10:11 am GMT)

    Jon came to see our 3 Month Old Puppy Lester this Morning. Jon is truly amazing. He has given us easy and achievable (hopefully!) techniques to help stimulate and train Lester. Jon had such a gentle and calming persona about him. Jon is nothing but AWESOME - We can not wait to work with Jon so that we can become the best Owners of such an amazing Dog - Jon is an Inspirational Trainer.

  • Alison (Friday, March 19 21 12:53 pm GMT)

    I must share a proud Mum moment. Since your visit we have been working on distract, mark, treat and desensitisation to large black dogs with Reggie, following all your advice. Today she achieved a beach walk and play session with 4 big dogs. I was really so very proud of her. She had never been this close to Big Black dogs before; such a long way from the major barker we had at the beginning. Big up to you as we were really lost and despondent when we came to you. I just wanted to let you know that we also watch all your videos and we really appreciate them greatly. Thank you for your advice. Have a great weekend. Alison

  • Emma Walker (Friday, March 19 21 08:56 am GMT)

    His attention to detail is amazing!! Sprinkles is a cross breed mastiff so is big and strong even at 8 months I swear she walks me!! After just 2 hours we were at a really good point where I could walk up and down outside our house with no pulling.....I was actually in control!!! Can't wait to practice and get more confident to tackle a proper walk with the whole family 😊

  • Becky Caplan (Friday, March 19 21 08:51 am GMT)

    Jon came out to me as a welfare case, been in touch for a while. soon as it got to much he was there to assist me. had an Amazing 2 hour session tailored to my pups needs. lots of games to carry on practicing at home and very positive to get my pups bad habits stopped. very happy

  • Sharon (Friday, February 19 21 12:11 pm GMT)

    I would highly recommend Jon of Canine Assist. Over the years Jon has helped with a range of situations with my Rottweiler Kayleigh as well as having her as a holiday boarder on many occasions.Kayleigh was a re-home and only knew a few commands. I had a couple of 1-2-1’s on West Park with Jon and her heel walking and recall are now brilliant. She is not really food motivated so we found that a squeaky toy did the trick!She is scared of a lot of dogs so when we asked Jon if she could come stay while we were going on holiday, he introduced her gradually to Rebel and the other guests and she became a regular visitor.One of the most kind and accommodating things was when my elderly father had a kitchen fire that left his house uninhabitable. My Dad went into a care home and Jon took my dads dog, Winston in without a blink of an eye. Winston was with Jon for some weeks and he arranged times when I could pick him up and take him to the Care home to visit my father and the other residents. Then when my father passed away, Jon stepped up again and look after Winston for a few days while we got sorted and then again on the day of the funeral. Then, as we relocated to France, Jon has helped me with advise on explaining Kayleigh’s behaviour to the French trainer who also has lodgings.And then as if he hasn’t helped enough - recently I was able to join in with a Q&A session for my friends extremely naughty young dog that I was looking after and I am pleased to say I have him walking nicely on his new harness and not lunging and passing cars although I haven’t cured the barking in the car! Yet!

  • Chantelle Cox (Friday, February 19 21 12:10 pm GMT)

    I didn't realise how valuable a dog trainer of Jon's ability would be until I took on two German Shepherds!! Having had dogs all my life, mostly Labradors, I thought I was quite a good dog owner and knew how to train dogs until Hilda and Gary the German Shepherds arrived! I knew I needed a dog trainer to help me and having spoken to quite a few Jon was the only one that was not only interested in the dogs but also me. I cannot tell you how grateful I am I have found him, he is so kind, understanding and really gets where my anxiety comes from. From the first moment he met Gary and Hilda they were so taken with him. The reason I had called him was because they had been attacked by a neighbours dog at 14 weeks and they appeared to be showing signs of stress. Immediately I could relax, it felt like they had known him forever. We spent a lot of time going over the issues I had and Jon had so much patience it was incredible. This man is just brilliant, not only does he help the dog but he also helps the owner. Yes I was arrogant to think I knew about training dogs but Jon has been brilliant and taught me so much, I have to say that thanks to Jon I am now more 'dog'.My journey was not complete though, I have had issues with Hilda and have had to call on Jon several times for advice. He always takes my call, we can discuss the issues and he is so generous with his knowledge, expertise and time. When I call him it is fantastic that I can talk through my worries with him and he not only gives me help but can also back it up with genuine examples.I can honestly say that I have learnt more about dogs than I thought possible since I have known Jon and feel like he is a really safe pair of hands for when I have problems. I never recommend anybody however, I have recommended Jon to several friends knowing that they will not be let down. I have followed his online tutorials and they have been invaluable, each lesson is easy to understand and at a pace that really helps the dog and owner. Having a GSD that has been diagnosed with bi-lateral hip dysplasia my first port of call was Jon. We talked it through and I signed up to a couple of courses where he would learn new skills with his nose! He loves it and it wears him out without any stress on his hips. How brilliant is that!!Please believe me when I say I do not know where I would be without Jon (to the point he is now on my speed dial). I cannot recommend him highly enough - brilliant guy. Thank you Jon

  • Greg (Friday, February 19 21 12:09 pm GMT)

    Jon is brilliant. His knowledge and willingness to share and genuine desire to help us over the years has been incredible. He has helped us so much with our troubled boy for over 5 years now, where others have been unable to help or simply suggest we give up on him. His commitment and determination to help us never waivers and our boy has come on leaps and bounds as a result over the years, he has and continues to teach us so much! The work jon puts into him and the work and development he puts into himself to continue to learn and develop himself to better help our boy continue to amaze me.

  • Gem Smith (Friday, February 19 21 10:38 am GMT)

    I have had the pleasure of knowing Jon for many years now, and in the last four years especially he has been a massive influence over my own training. He kindly allowed me to shadow his work when I was studying for my own canine behaviour qualification and has provided me with constant support ever since. Jon is constantly studying and learning so if you want the most scientifically up to date help for your dog then Canine Assist is the place to go.If Jon cannot help your dog then no one can, he is an amazing trainer and behaviourist and a true inspiration to the rest of us.Gemma, Red Robin Dog Training

  • Sarah (Friday, February 19 21 10:38 am GMT)

    I was so lucky to be referred to Jon when my puppy was rejected by another daycare provider, who labelled him as aggressive and unmanageable. In reality, he was a young pup learning boundaries and once he was under Jon's patient supervision he was able to learn how to socialise with other dogs and happily be separated from me for extended periods while I work or go on holiday.Whilst the primary service that I use is daycare and boarding, Jon has taught me many positive training methods to work and play with my dog which has turned him into the well-rounded 6-year old family pet that he now is. He isn't perfect but, thanks to Jon, I have a lot more understanding and insight into his behaviour and how to manage issues, which helps to reduce stress levels for both me - and my dog.I wouldn't hestitate to recommend Jon to anyone who wants to have a better relationship with their dog, or who is struggling with unwanted behaviour. He clearly adores dogs and cares about their welfare - you only have to see the relationship he has with his own dogs for evidence. Take a look at his facebook page for other rave reviews from happy guardians.

  • Dawn (Friday, February 19 21 10:27 am GMT)

    I have found the course extremely helpful. The clear, concise instructions help you to feel the training is achievable in a happy, positive way. The videos are short and sweet which is paramount when caring for a lively puppy.In such a short space of time I have quite a well mannered puppy and tools to distract him when he is having his ‘wild’ time. The course is also very useful to create a good routine in your dogs daily life. Each day we have something to work towards, we’re bonding and using up excess energy.

  • Holly (Friday, February 19 21 10:26 am GMT)

    Jon has been absolutely amazing with our very nervous border collie from the very first meeting. Our collie was nervous of everything and became reactive in most situations especially around strangers and Jon has helped us using his expert knowledge to train her to be more confident and taught us to understand how we can help her to not react in situations. Jon has such a huge passion for dogs which is clear as soon as you meet him and his friendly, calm manner combined with his amazing knowledge of canine behaviour makes the perfect dog trainer. We are forever grateful to Jon for helping us with Merry and I will 100% recommend Jon to anyone who is looking for a dog trainer but particularly anyone who feels like there is no hope for their nervous dog, there is and it is Jon.

  • Jessie (Friday, February 19 21 10:25 am GMT)

    We've been sending our Dog to Jon's for around 4ish years now and i wouldn't trust anybody else to have my dog. Jarvis is quite an extreme case with some of his issues yet when hes with Jon hes so much better. To be able to have someone close to home who is more than capable of looking after Jarvis at daycare and over night stays is amazing.The training Jon has showed us has helped massively with Jarvis, his behavior has got so much better since we've had training sessiosns and since Jarvis has been going to day care.He goes to Jon's for Day Care every Monday and he has the best time, its the only place Jarvis gets to be around other dogs, in a controlled environment and he feels safe there and i feel hes very well cared for and treated like a family pet like he does all the dogs he has.I recommend Jon/Canine Assist to anyone who is having trouble with their dogs behavior or just needs day care or simple training help :)

  • James Capper (Wednesday, January 20 21 07:55 am GMT)

    John, you’ve not only helped my dog you’ve helped me. I understand my dog so much more now and we FINALLY got my puppy, Travis, to walk.

    Even during Covid and some remote work and phone calls you understood my ask and helped me and Travis overcome his fear of walking.

    Canine Assists really are real life dog whisperers.

    Would not only RECOMMEND, would absolutely INSIST YOU USE THEM AND THEIR COURSES.

  • Donna (Sunday, October 25 20 08:13 am GMT)

    Fantastic bloke! Put us at ease straight away , very focused and explains things well . Despite Bruce being very nervous of having someone strange in the house , Jon managed to get some training done with us . By the end of the session Bruce was so relaxed he had a little snooze on the kitchen floor which he never does. Very well received by myself and Bruce . Thank you!

  • Nicki (Monday, October 19 20 08:01 am BST)

    Jon was amazing with Stanley. Very knowledgeable and clearly very skilled at what he does. I learned so much just watching him with Stanley. I wouldn’t think twice about recommending him to help train any dog. He’s left me with support material and the tools and skill (I hope) to tackle Stanley’s fear and confidence issues. Thank you Jon! 🐶

  • Gemma (Monday, October 19 20 08:00 am BST)

    Absolutely fantastic. Can’t rate Jon enough! So helpful and explains everything so well. The information given after the visit and the detailed plan for training are exceptional.

  • Tracy (Saturday, September 12 20 12:45 pm BST)

    I would highly recommend Jon @ CanineAssist. He is truly knowledgable and frankly worked miracles with my very scared dog after just one session. I look forward to building upon what he has taught me and working with him again.

  • Rachel (Wednesday, July 22 20 11:04 am BST)

    Jon is an excellent Pro dog trainer and behaviourist.
    He has an affinity with dogs that allows him to see the situation and the dogs needs.
    With this he is able to give an easy to understand and workable solution to different challengers.
    Jon is friendly and informative and very easy to work with.
    We have had large breeds for 23 years and working with Jon has given us a new level of fun to our ongoing training at home. It is a joy to see our dogs enjoyment on a daily basis.
    I can not endorse Jon highly enough and would not hesitate to recommend Jon for any dog training or behaviourist needs.

  • Natalie Davies (Tuesday, February 25 20 11:19 am GMT)

    I recently made contact with Jon after looking for some 1:1 training for myself and my French Bulldog. Jon has completely changed my outlook on how I engage with my pooch to get better results and how this will build a better relationship with him. It is early days but I can already see the changes. I would definitely say if you’re thinking about this then know you need to be committed to it. I was supplied with a thorough follow up email and will be making use of the generous aftercare. I wish I’d embarked on this earlier! Jon is knowledgable and is very passionate, I’m enjoying what I’ve learned so far and looking forward to carrying on! Thank you 🐾

  • Anthony John (Tuesday, February 25 20 11:17 am GMT)

    We had been working with our American Bulldog/Staffy X Bella with another Trainer at their dog school, when we started getting a few unrelated issue's, Our trainer felt it was out of their scope of expertise and put us onto Canine Assist - From the start Jon was amazing he built and instant bond and Bella just loves seeing him -- Jon kept our other trainer in the loop and even attended a class with us and stayed to discuss Bella with the trainer so all could be joined up --- It was brilliant to see two trainers who are both absolutely passionate about Canine Welfare working together and supporting each other .... Jon has such a wealth of experience, amazing compassion and a true desire for dogs; its easy to see why he is so well respected by his colleagues and clients -- We have just completed the first stage of our Journey and cannot believe the difference already -- Bella is so focused on us and the introduction of short "ad break" & "Kettle Boiling" training sessions has really made a massive difference -- we no longer panic about spending ages on long unproductive walks -- if we can only manage a few games this gets rid of Bella's energy and allows us time to be more relaxed and then plan better quality walks --- dare I say it Jon has not only improved Bella's life, he has taken so much stress from ours too ... we are so thankful that our trainer recommended him and that we got the chance to work with him and we now have two really great trainers to call on for Bella and whats great is that they work together for the benefit of Bella.. Thank you so much --- if I could give you 5 stars I would well maybe 6 out 5 :). Highly Highly Recommend !!

  • Jane Grant (Tuesday, February 25 20 11:16 am GMT)

    Highly Recommend -- We first called Jon in the early part of last year and just had an assessment visit to help us with our troublesome pooch -- We were amazed at how much time he spent with us and Marley, his knowledge is immense and his passion for all things dog just shines through, Marley just took to him so quickly. The improvement over the coming months was amazing and having the additional support so we could call on Jon as we needed was invaluable - we were even able to send videos in for him to review.
    We have since called him back and chosen one of his games bundles so we can teach Marley even more fun things to do -- whats great is that there is no pressure to rush through and complete the visits and having the email and phone support keeps us on track and when we update Jon he tinkers with what we need to do next. Canine Assist thank you so much ... and we now know "There's a game for that" 😊!!

  • Emma (Monday, October 28 19 07:41 am GMT)

    We have been working with Jon for the past 6 months. We opted for the games bundle and have had sessions monthly. We are so grateful that Jon was recommended to us. If your thinking of getting a dog trainer I would encourage you to do it and contact Jon - we don’t know what we don’t yet know. Every time we meet with Jon I am astounded by his wealth of knowledge and we learn so much. There is no way we would have helped our dog Joey 🐶 and found our way with books & the internet. Joey came to live with us when he was 3, this was his 6th home within the last year. His past experiences meant that life could be quite stressful for him and he had many challenges - scared of new people, places, dogs, people near our home and noises, hyper vigilant, struggled to relax etc etc. This surfaced in lots of behaviours that was pretty difficult for us and him. Jon has helped us make HUGE progress teaching us how to beat manage situations and support Joey (all of Jons advice and techniques are evidence/ researched backed). These are our successes made possible by Jon they might sound simple but for Joey they are really significant compared to where we started. Joey is much calmer, barks / reacts less, we are able to introduce him to new people, he has made new human friends he loves, he walks and plays with other dogs, he has grown in confidence, he has a higher tolerance to stress, he calms down much quicker, we can have visitors, we can take him to a cafe / pub, he has learnt lots of new skills he is now starting scent work etc etc etc. It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Jon and we’re so very grateful for all his support and guidance. One of the nicest guys and passionate people I know with your best friends welfare at the heart of everything he does 💕

  • Molly (Tuesday, October 22 19 07:36 am BST)

    Hi Jon,
    It Was great to meet you, we enjoyed the session and found it really informative, plus we all slept well, Loki even had a lie in this morning too hes normally a 5am early bird haha. Alot if not all made perfect sense once it was explained, it all fell into place and I feel more confident with what im doing now which im sure Loki will benefit from that aswell.
    I noticed a massive difference from him yesterday he was alot calmer and quite focused on me waiting. Today we have had a productive day, going at his own pace with his harness and playing games in the garden. He is sitting without me asking, we also did alot of work with going through the door/gates calm and normally when he'd hear a noise he would be pacing back an forth barking non stop anywhere from 10 mins to an hour, now I just say Loki, this way and he comes sits gets a treat. So all in all even from just yesterday I have seen a great improvement and to see that he is able to progress was a huge weight lifted off me. Thank you for your support and all the work for us to do, im quite nerdy so look forward to putting it into practise.

    I shall keep you informed on his progress and contact you about further meet and greets.

    Thanks again, im honestly so grateful and cannot wait to see him progress.

    Molly & Loki

  • KP Snippets (Friday, October 18 19 11:14 am BST)

    Outstanding service and a real asset to the community. Jon has been absolutely excellent with our dog over the past years and we are really sad to be parting ways. He is a wealth of knowledge, he is incredibly committed to the dogs, their fulfilment and to the integrity of his business. We have been very lucky to have him right on our doorstep and we will miss him a lot. 5 stars, Canine Assist offers a huge amount more than just a place to park your pooch!

  • Joel Stockdale (Wednesday, October 02 19 08:03 am BST)

    Where to start? We have had problems with our Jack Russel x Chihuahua for around a year, he is a very anxious boy and has bitten family members and friends as a way of creating distance. Louie is always nervous around people he doesn’t know and in particular people that come into our home. Jon came to us around a month ago in our hour of need. Since then Louie has been fantastic. He is starting to become more confident around people and allows visitors into our home by being well behaved. Jon’s training methods are first class, his session was engaging for Louie and he was upset when Jon had to leave! Jon helped us learn that there is no such thing as a lost cause and even when you feel like there is no hope left, there is a light at the end of the tunnel! We aren’t 100% there with Louie and may never be, but since Jon’s visit we have seen a massive improvement with our dog. The support during and after the session has been amazing and we have been learning how to train Louie through the 8 week support programme that comes with the sessions! Thank you for helping us Jon we really appreciate it🙏🏻🙏🏻

  • Kellee (Wednesday, October 02 19 08:03 am BST)

    Really helpful and informative phone call with Jon this evening about my 2 year old schnoodle who is weeing upstairs 🙄! Talked through possible reasons why and also gave me a wealth of ideas and strategies to use with her! Thank you Jon!

  • Melinda (Wednesday, October 02 19 08:01 am BST)

    Massive thanks to Jon. He is a very knowledgeable guy and explained everything to us in a really clear way. Totally understand why our dog is the way he is now, we cannot wait to see Milo progress. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend CANINEASSIST x

  • Mary McCann (Wednesday, September 11 19 11:18 am BST)

    I would definitely recommend Jon to others. He has a great understanding of dogs and their behaviour. He is very professional and explains everything clearly. I was very impressed with how quickly our dog Oliver responded to his positive training methods.
    Jon left us with lots of games and exercises to help us build Olivers confidence and get his brain working.
    We are already beginning to see results, thank you Jon!

  • Carol Lawson (Monday, August 12 19 08:57 am BST)

    Absolutely amazing training session for me and my 9 month old puppy today with Jon - I could not believe how much could be achieved in such a relatively short space of time linking to specific issues we were having. Barney responded brilliantly to Jon’s calm, positive training methods and was clearly having huge amounts of fun too. Jon was just as brilliant with the humans making sure every action was clearly explained from both the trainer’s point of view and the dog’s. I already feel so much more confident as a first time dog owner and would recommend Canineassist without hesitation to anyone who is having training or behaviour issues or who simply wants to enhance their relationship with their dog.

  • Tam (Monday, August 12 19 08:56 am BST)

    I highly recommend Jon for help with your dog(s), no matter what you need. His friendly, calm, highly skilled and bespoke approach is amazing to watch. Am learning so much, and my dog absolutely loves his sessions with Jon!

  • Lewis (Monday, August 12 19 08:52 am BST)

    Had a great session with Jon helping to understand and control a few bad behaviours from our pup. Jon is incredibly knowledgable and intuitive and has left us with lots of great techniques, tips, tricks and resources to help keep us more in control and keep our dog calmer when out on walks and stop unwanted barking around the home👌🏼

  • Gary Wagstaff (Friday, August 02 19 06:47 pm BST)

    The advise and suggestions Jon gave us re our excitable 10 month old black lab have already started to show dividends in less than 24 hours.

    Jon’s down to earth and friendly approach have helped not only our puppy but also educated myself and my partner.

    I couldn’t recommend Jon enough and I’m looking forward to the progress we’ll make over the next few weeks.

  • Alan Froggatt (Monday, July 15 19 04:09 pm BST)

    Many thanks for your advice on Friday evening and for the written instructions. We are implementing it, and have already made Robbie a
    noise box and he is using it, mainly to get food from, although he has
    already been moving the can we put in.

    On Saturday morning we noticed that when he heard a car door slam, he lifted his head up, but then ignored it, so of course he received a
    treat. We feel marvellous as he is already making headway.

  • Ben (Thursday, July 11 19 10:06 am BST)

    For anyone who is looking for an experienced training professional then look no further than Jon.
    Jon is a positive reward based dog trainer who uses fun and games to train which has worked brilliantly with Joey. Without his guidance and knowing what games to play and when we certainly wouldn’t be where we are today with Joey.
    If you have a certain behaviour from your dog that you would like to improve/change then definitely contact Jon 😀

  • Jessica (Tuesday, July 09 19 11:18 am BST)

    We had Jon visit us on Sunday (07/07) with our 14th month old Rottie Lena.
    Lena is anxious with new people and new situations so we needed to work on building her confidence.
    I wasn't sure how it was going to go - but once Lena let Jon into our house he worked his magic and to say we were impressed was an understatement!!!
    He got Lena doing things I didn't think was possible and all in a short amount of time aswell (she's rather clever!). Jon explained everything to us so we could understand why Lena reacted as she did and what we can do to help build her confidence and to help her choose the right behaviour. We are looking forward to working with Jon and seeing how Lena progresses. We would recommend Jon in an instant, Thank you! 🐕

  • Mel Willetts (Saturday, July 06 19 08:50 pm BST)

    Absolutely fantastic what Jon got my dog carter to do within 5 mins of meeting him I was amazed. Has given us great tools to continue training and now I am actually looking for to walks rather than that feeling of dread. Thank you Jon

  • Rachel Maria Knight (Friday, July 05 19 12:12 pm BST)

    I just wanted to say a fantastic thank you to Jon. He came to meet our Canine Family tonight (all 4 of them). A fantastic positive, stimulating games session for our fur babies and an amazing training session for us. We recently added a rescue to our clan (Balley) and Jon has really helped us to work with him and the others.

  • Amy B (Tuesday, June 11 19 10:56 am BST)

    Called on Jon for some advice RE teaching our over excited Staffy Cooper to great our guests politely!
    What he achieved at out assesment visit was quite something and it's given us lots to work on.
    Jon was able to change our thinking and we now feel we can better support Cooper to stay calm which will help us manage all sorts of his behaviours.
    Would definitely recommend and looking forward to seeing how Cooper makes progress over the coming weeks :-). Thank you!

  • Mitch (Thursday, June 06 19 12:35 pm BST)

    We had a great initial session with Jon. He is extremely knowledgeable and uses the latest training techniques. We made some good initial progress and have been given plenty of excercises to go away with to work on over the coming weeks. We're looking forward to working more with Jon and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a trainer.

  • Mrs Waby (Saturday, June 01 19 05:52 pm BST)

    From start to finish of our session Jon just had my girls full attention. A full packed session full of tips, encouragement and really good training. Also you have continued support for a further 6 weeks.
    I have already recommended Jon to two friends and I would recommend him to everyone.
    Thank you Jon.

    WOW – We feel so lucky to have had Jon recommended to us when looking for home boarding/trainer for our 7 month old puppy. We have had nothing but first class service, from our first conversation with Jon to meeting him with our puppy in his home for the introduction session - Jon is such a genuine & professional person. Cooper has just had his first week at Jon’s and it was clear from the regular updates, videos and photos he had the best time, lot’s of fun, been very loved and given a lot of games based training that he absolutely loves - He is so eager to learn & the method of training that Jon provides is perfect for Coopers personality, keep’s his brain totally active & interested – He’s come home shattered & very very happy. The whole experience of leaving Cooper with Jon really enhanced our holiday knowing he was in such safe hands. We have learnt so much from Jon in such a short space of time, he has shared with us a wealth of knowledge on how to address certain behaviours and nothing is ever a problem, he explains things so clearly and always willing to help and advise. We are so grateful to Jon and I would recommend him 100%.

    What an incredible session we had today with Jon. We learned so much and Cilla just melted by heart by how she responded and engaged. Peggy even joined in too. Now the hard work begins with us getting the best out of our girls. We couldn't be prouder. Jon was a fabulous trainer with the girls but most of all making easy for us to understand too. Onwards & upwards.
    Can't recommend Jon enough. Thank you.???

    Jon is such a nice, genuine person who is clearly passionate about the work that he does. His knowledge and experience is outstanding ! Jon was amazing with our very fearful, vocal and nippy dog. Our dog really struggles with visitors so it was amazing that Jon was able to help our dog calm down, build a rapport with him and play with him which we didn’t think would be possible. He has helped us understand our dog and given us practical easy steps to follow to help us help our dog ?

Jon is very knowledgeable about modern training techniques and was really good looking after my 14 week old English Springer, Archer. Thanks





Patricia Cragg(Monday, April 24 17 09:33 am BST)

Jon came to our rescue on 19th April,'re concerns about our rescue Springer Spaniel age 5. His excitablity was leading to hard mouthing. We have young grandchildren so this was a real concern. Jon's calm knowledge and instruction which we are following to the letter has led to an amazing transformation in both our lovely Springer and ourselves. A BIG Thank You Jon :) Would highly recommend.




Sarah(Monday, April 17 17 12:37 pm BST)

Highly recommend . Willow is not good with other dogs and some people . She was very wary of Jon at first but she gradually allowed him to stroke her and bonded well with him. He worked with her in the garden also and was able to hold her at the fence whilst next doors dog was there and she didn't bark. Thankyou.




Kate(Saturday, March 11 17 04:50 pm GMT)

Jon has helped us with Milo's fear towards other dogs. The improvement we have seen in him is amazing! He even stayed with Jon while we went away and had the best time! I would 100% recommend these services to anyone with a dog! Jon is brilliant.




Joanna Repton(Wednesday, March 08 17 07:33 am GMT)

Had first consultation for our Beagle Beau! Found Jon to be very knowledgeable, supportive and encouraging. We have been given lots of tips to start us on our journey. Highly recommend!!




Rosemary(Tuesday, March 07 17 04:12 pm GMT)

Jon has been amazing in putting us on the right path, the transformation within the session was fantastic...although we know that we have a long way to go still. We're looking forward to working with Jon more in the future and whilst Ethel is a lovely (to us!) little dog we can't wait to see what she becomes with the support of Canine Assist!




Michelle Wright(Friday, October 21 16 06:58 am BST)

Jon was great with our beagle Alfie really explains and demonstrated everything well, taught us a lot and was very informative, gave us lots to work on with Alfie but made it easy to follow and was
great all round. Time for us to do the real hard work now but I highly recommend




Keith Griffiths(Tuesday, September 20 16 07:41 am BST)

Wouldn't trust anyone else with my little guy Maverick




Jemma Edwards(Sunday, June 05 16 06:30 pm BST)

We have been working with Jon since January with our highly reactive and excitable cocker spaniel. Since getting Louie he has always barked excessively at the sight of other dogs making walks
somewhat unbearable. After only a few sessions with Jon Louie's behaviour has improved dramatically. Jon has gently socialised him using stooge dogs building up to a short visit in the day care, then
a full afternoon where he was off lead and playing with Rebel and Chi Chi. We never thought he would ever be able to do that! Jon has since visited us at home with the gorgeous Dora and patiently
built up socialisation on a walk and then a run around the garden. Again we were so impressed this was possible! The barking is still an issue we are working on but it is reassuring to know that it
is pure over excitement and not aggression. We look forward to continuing working with Jon. He is so knowledgable and dedicated, he has been a massive help to us and Louie. I would definitely
recommend him to anyone with doggy issues.




Kim McAree(Friday, April 15 16 12:32 pm BST)

I just wanted to say many thanks to Jon for all his help with my dogs Max and Izzy. I have followed his training plan for the last 2 months and already seen a huge improvement with the problems we
were having . I realise that it will be a long road but feel confident that with his advice we will get there in the end . I would highly recommend his services. He is very professional with a very
reasonable pricing policy.




Margaret(Tuesday, March 08 16 08:45 am GMT)

The first consultation with Jon on a couple of problems we were having with our rescue dog, Bella, was really good and has given us the confidence to work with her and her issues. I would have no
hesitation in recommending Jon to anyone who has issues with their dog, big or small.




Hannah Walch(Wednesday, December 23 15 10:57 am GMT)

Hi Jon....wanted to give you an update as it's been a while since you visited. Gem and Bella had one more scuffle following your visit but we stuck to the advice of removing ourselves if it was safe
to do so and it stopped within seconds. We thought about the discussion we had about leaving them alone together and after a week of no fighting decided to leave them together overnight so we could
still intervene if needed. Pleased to say that went well so after a week of being alone with us upstairs we tried our first short trip out leaving them in the kitchen. Again that seemed to go ok. Now
Gem will not leave Bella alone...but not in a negative way, they play together constantly until the fun police (Taz) breaks them up!! We've still got issues to work on with Gem which we'll get in
touch about in the new year but as far as my two dualling bitches goes...we've cracked it!! :)




Ralph & Vanessa Anderson (& Monty)(Tuesday, December 01 15 09:41 pm GMT)

The visit was a great help to my confidence with Monty. It is slow progress, taking it in small chunks, but we are getting there.
Long walks seem to help. We still have some lead biting, we just try to be patient.




Katie Hopewell(Monday, August 17 15 12:53 pm BST)

Hi Jon,

I just wanted to give you an update and also give you another huge thank you.

This weekend my parents have gone away from Thursday evening until this afternoon for the first time since we have got Duncan.

They left me with Duncan in complete confidence that there would be know problems. Which is thanks to the training you have provided us.

My sister came over a few times to keep me company but I was mainly on my own with Duncan, I didn't have any problems what so ever and he exceeded everyone's expectations.

I tried to keep him in his normal routine and it worked he was the most relaxed and happy he has ever been with me. The bond between me and Duncan has grown massively and he is now happy to come to
me while mum is sat next to me which he has never done before.

He has been a fantastic boy this weekend and I am glad I took time off work and got the opportunity to spend some quality time with Duncan while my parents got a well deserved break.

It has boosted all our confidence that my parents can have weekends/breaks away and trust Duncan with me or my sister.

This is all thanks to the help and advise you have provided us. It has changed our household as we aren't worried about how Duncan will react about things.

I can't thank you enough for what you have done for us, you have helped us find the true Duncan who is now comfortable and happy around all of us.

I would like to make a form of donation towards the doggy hotel/day care you run as this is an amazing service. If there is any equipment you would like for your garden please let me know otherwise I
would like to make a cash donation.

Thank you again for everything you have done for us and Duncan. I would highly recommend you to anyone and everyone who has any issue with their dog or puppy.




Dave Bryan(Tuesday, July 21 15 06:41 pm BST)

Absolutely brilliant advice Jon, thank you!
Claire, Ruby and I really appreciated your help and advice. We learnt more in 2 hours, than we could have ever imagined.
HIGHLY HIGHLY recommended!!




Katie Hopewell(Monday, May 25 15 09:38 am BST)

Our nervous unpredictable dog has finally turned a corner after one session with Jon.

This weekend for the first time since we got Duncan we have been able to have guests round. We have had a fantastic weekend with know problems thanks to the training and support we have

I would recommend Jon to anyone who has a nervous dog and needs support. I look forward to our next session!!




Carole Scholes(Friday, March 06 15 10:58 pm GMT)

We met Jon when we sought help for one of our puppies. Along with sound positive advice we were given, my puppies now attend daycare once a week and we are regular users of the dog hotel. I love
watching them in day care on Facebook. I just can\'t believe we\'ve been so lucky to find such overall care. Thank you.




Ray Ferg(Wednesday, March 04 15 10:55 am GMT)

Jon is very knowledgeable with the dogs and their behavior and he provides an all round great service.
My Rottweiler/Bullmastiff got to spend time with a pack of dogs whilst we were away and I could access Facebook updates and photographs each day. It was brilliant to see her playing and relaxing with
other dogs. We initially took Freya to Jon because we felt she had developed a slight lead aggression on walks and Jon had a whole load of tips and advice. she has since improved and we are very
happy to know that she gets on with most other dogs and people. I would recommend Canine Assist to anyone!!




Kathryn(Monday, March 02 15 09:49 am GMT)

5 star - Brilliant advice and training techniques! Ella (our dog) has many behaviour issues which we thought would be impossible to solve but within the consultation Jon showed us what Ella really
could do and it was fantastic! I would definatly recommend Jon 100%!




Ann(Thursday, February 05 15 08:24 am GMT)

He is really good behavioural therapist he taught us a lot of things about our dogs behaviour that we could not work out why she was doing it like barking chewing her behaviour towards others her
behaviour towards us why she runs to door when some one comes why she runs around people when they come in so yes he is good at his job




Karen & Kieron(Monday, January 26 15 12:14 pm GMT)

Great dog behaviourist really helped settle our worries over a new rescue dog. Fantastic day care too she loves it there and we know she very well cared for




Wendy(Monday, January 26 15 12:13 pm GMT)

My first puppy, and I’m an over anxious first time Mum! Lottie loves spending time with Jon and all the other members of the household. From her first stay they have been brilliant with both her and
me making sure neither of us are stressed. Fabulous day and overnight care. Thank you.




Steph(Thursday, October 09 14 05:04 pm BST)

I needed some back to basics training with my two dogs as I was beginning to lose confidence when out walking with them. Alfie my eldest dog developed a habit of barking at other dogs when out
walking, through not fault of his own, more to do with me developing a lack of confidence. After meeting Jon and listening to his sound advice we went out walking with him. It was clear to see the
issue lay with me, as I had no problems when I was walking with a calm approach. Since my first meeting I have had good days and bad days, but with more help from Jon in the coming months I hope to
improve so dog walking can become more enjoyable again. I would recommend Jon to anyone having dog related issues, it is so good to talk and listen with someone who understands and cares.




Rebecca(Wednesday, October 01 14 05:07 pm BST)

Finlay absolutely loves his visits to Jon and the family. It's also proved fab for us to get snippets of how we can improve Finlay's overall environment and relationships with other dogs. Thank you
for all your help!




Nicole(Monday, July 14 14 06:24 pm BST)

Jon and his family have been caring for our Lexie for around a year now. They provide an excellent service and are always there to support us whenever we need any advice or training. Lexie always
enjoys going to both doggy day care and the dog hotel, she sees it as her second home and always comes back to us smiling. I really Couldn't ask for a better family to care for out dog. Thank you so




Dawn Burns(Sunday, May 11 14 04:34 pm BST)

Our mum was a nervous pack leader, which wasn't a good disposition to have with us two youngsters. Luckily mum found Jon at Canine Assist. We all took to Jon's calm, positive approach, especially
mum! Jon even came to school with me one evening. We met Rebel for a long walk one day,
he"s cool. We feel mum has come on in leaps and bounds in confidence, I do test her occasionally, just to make sure, Boosh says thats a naughty thing to do but she's a goody two shoes. Anyway, thank
you Jon, our mum now really enjoys her walks and we're happy to tag along! love from Rowdy




Sunny & Annie Hallam(Sunday, May 04 14 05:13 pm BST)

Mum arranged for me to spend a few days with Jon and his family and Rugus and Rebel while she was off partying with her mates. This was a much better idea as I got to meet some other nice dogs and
was taken proper walks instead of being turned out in an exercise area. Even got to one of my favourite swimming places- and I could get in a sofa if I felt like it.. Luxury!! Jon seems to think a
bit like me which is ace. I can't wait for mum to go off partying again as I had a fab time. Thanks Jon &co big licks all round! Sunny




Lee Marshall(Tuesday, April 22 14 12:34 pm BST)

Canine assist has been a wonderful experience for us, a breath of fresh air. Our dog, Chester is very anxious and fearful and Jon has worked wonders in a short space of time and given us hope that
over time he will become the dog we want. Jon is extremely caring and has a real passion for dogs. I will certainly use his excellent dog hotel again in the future.




Deb & Gary(Friday, April 11 14 08:53 am BST)

Dylan loves doggy hotel and cant wait to come again in June for 8 days, we struggle to get him past the end of the road he is so eager to visit again!




Sheryll & Steve(Sunday, April 06 14 09:57 am BST)

Henry loves coming to stay at jon's he has ha so much fun playing with rebel and rufus. We can go away happy knowing that Henry is well looked after and treated as one of the family we wouldn't leave
him with anyone else. Thank you Jon




les gladdin(Saturday, April 05 14 06:06 pm BST)

Les Sandiacre, at our wits end with our dogs fighting the vets recommended canine assist and jons first visit really gave us hope and confidence we are still in the process of working with jon but so
far there as been a significant change for the good in our dogs would recommend jons services to any dog owner




Carla Etches(Friday, April 04 14 02:37 pm BST)

My hero!
Every dog owner needs a canine assist in their life! I can go away and relax knowing Riley is having fun in his 'second home'!
You have also helped me help Riley over come separation anxiety and basically given me an incite in to his mind.
I would, and do, recommend you to everyone :)




Angie(Saturday, November 09 13 09:47 am GMT)

Canine Assist were flexible to fit into our busy lifestyle, Jon listened to our concerns and addressed each one in turn. Jon had a calm, patient and firm approach with Alfie and we have already
recommended Canine Assist to our family and friends.




Dawn(Friday, May 24 13 05:04 pm BST)

Jon delivered a calm, patient, kind and positive approach with very clear 1 to 1 guidance - the treatment plan was easy to follow. The service we received from Canine Assist was excellent.




Annabel - Long Eaton(Thursday, November 22 12 09:46 pm GMT)

The service was fantastic, well worth every penny!
Advice given was practical and straight forward, the one to one training was extremely clear, the children are now much more at ease. Jon interacted brilliantly with Archie (he made it look so
easy)and Without a doubt, if anyone had any issues I would highly recommend Jon to visit.




Dawn - Long Eaton(Monday, June 18 12 05:24 pm BST)

The overall service was excellent. An easy to follow treatment plan & 1 to 1 training that was excellent. Jon had great interaction with Saffi. I will certainly be recommending Canine Assist.




Anne - Stapleford(Saturday, March 24 12 08:19 pm GMT)

I was realy pleased with the advice Jon gave me and it made what seemed a impossible task possible, It was very easy once I was shown and told the correct way to deal with the problems. It was
clearly explained and anything I didn’t fully understand was explained in detail to me. Jon's interaction with my dogs was very good, I would definitely recommend Canine Assist
