Fantastic, Jon has helped several of our rescue dogs and today my daughters dog Red .Wonderful advice for Ash to work on and a chance for Red to learn to meet and play in a relaxed calm manner. Jon is a quiet calm trainer,very impressed!!
Jon is very knowledgeable about modern training techniques and was really good looking after my 14 week old English Springer, Archer. Thanks

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.

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.

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!

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

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.

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)
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)
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
