    We have a very lively Labrador, therefore we booked in Jon and to come work with us on calming activities as well as mental stimulation. Jon is so enthusiastic and knowledgeable that the two hours zoomed by. Both my husband and I had an enjoyable afternoon with our pup and are so looking forward to putting everything we learnt into action! Jon not only gave us some great advice and tips, he is there to support the process and has already answered many questions which have put us at ease! In just the last two days, we can see a massive difference with Maya. Jon is a must have when you are new to dog training! Highly recommended!

  • Nikii (Friday, June 07 24 04:49 pm BST)

    First session with Jon today to help us with our Chihuahua Dougie who finds seeing other dogs on walks rather over stimulating and screams like he's on a Rollercoaster and acts like the Tasmanian Devil!
    Got some very helpful and informative advice from Jon today with our first session and some great ideas to work with Dougie on.

    Can't wait for the next session to see how far we have come. Saw some great improvements today in Dougie and that was only the first meet.
    Thanks Jon.

  • Louise, Chris & Denzel (Thursday, June 06 24 04:56 pm BST)

    Denzel is doing great! He’s been so good, I can now open the front door and fetch the mail or parcels and he stays sitting at the bottom of the stairs, before he would have dashed straight out the door. Last night we had friends round who have been before and that time he barked and was jumpy, however when they came this time they threw his treats for him and slowly came into the house by the time they left he was sitting on the sofa with them (he is allowed to do that) and they were playing outside with him with his ball. Was so proud of him he did so well. He’s really made progress.

    Will carry on with our training and let you know how it goes.

  • Kitsten (Friday, May 31 24 11:21 am BST)

    Thanks for your help yesterday. We've been on a walk this morning, and I would say 3 out of 4 dogs he did really well with. First one, wasn't brilliant but that was my timing!!, second one a little bark and then I was able to gain his focus. The next 2 he has a little cry but not reaction at all really. The fact I have strategies has given me so much more confidence. Thanks again

  • Chris Whitchurch (Thursday, May 23 24 09:22 am BST)

    Can't recommend Jon enough our lab cross Denzel would not let friends or family in the house in the session Jon showed us the root cause of the problem did some training exercises and also showed us how to carry it out ourselves and what to work on, I can't believe the progress Denzel made in the day. Thankyou so much

  • Janet & Patrick (Thursday, May 23 24 09:15 am BST)

    We’ve had a big breakthrough. We've managed to groom Matty with the clippers 3 times now, first the back half (in two separate sessions), then up around his shoulders tonight. Patrick rewards him while I buzz. I'm not the best groomer and not taking his coat short but we're so pleased we've managed to do this... with your help of course. Not sure I'll ever be able to do his face and fringe, but we'll keep persevering. We hope hell be much cooler with a slight trim. He's such a lovely dog, and we feel we're getting close to the final hurdle. Thank you so much for your advice and encouragement. Janet and Patrick Scott.

  • Heather Cherrie (Saturday, April 20 24 03:51 pm BST)

    Jon has helped me with my dog Odie who can be over-reactive. He was very clam despite Odie barking at him and he gained Odie's trust in no time. He explained how we could help the situation well and we practised using these strategies to good effect. Jon certainly knows his stuff and I highly recommend him

  • Michelle (Friday, April 12 24 12:48 pm BST)

    We met Jon yesterday for some help with our dog, he has begun some guarding and we also needed help with loose lead walking.Jon is a fountain of knowledge, he really advocates for the dog and helps you to understand your dogs behaviour and what your dog is trying to tell you. He understands dog body language so well and what all the little things your dog does actually means!Jon spend well over the 2 hours he was meant to be with us! We have a comprehensive written plan and lots and lots of resources to help us. Jon is available afterwards with follow up calls and messages as-well if we need anything. We feel very supported and able to start helping out dog. We also felt there was no ‘ hard sell’ and the exploratory free phone call was v helpful.Thanks Jon

  • Jade (Friday, April 12 24 12:48 pm BST)

    Jon came out today to see my lovely but reactive German Shepherd who is very anxious and nervous around people leading to fear aggression. Jon's knowledge and experience really showed in our 2 hour session, and it was amazing to see what dog Raven could become and feel a ray of hope that we can definitely make some changes, so that Raven can become less nervous and be more of the chilled out dog that I dream about. Lots of work to do, but I feel so much better placed to help her now.

  • Val (Friday, April 12 24 12:47 pm BST)

    I just want to share Shadow's progress with you as promised. He is doing really well. Excellent with scenting and "to heel" indoors and there's much less pulling when we're out and about. I'm really pleased with his progress and appreciate all that you've taught me in training him. All the best Val & Shadow.

  • Alison (Tuesday, March 12 24 11:58 pm GMT)

    Highly recommend Jon and Canine Assist - really helpful, knowledgeable and experienced. Needed help with my dogs attention seeking via barking and nipping, was able to speak with Jon quickly and get an appointment within a couple of weeks. Jon had some really helpful tips and training tools, as well as access to loads of help sheets and videos to help me further. Highly recommend

  • Kamelia (Monday, March 11 24 01:46 pm GMT)

    Jon was recommended to us by another professional. We had very high expectations and hopes and he didn’t only meet them but he also exceeded them. Jon has so much knowledge, he explains everything to you, so you can understand it. He is very patient, and he observed your dog not only from what you identify as the problem but from before it, to help you truly find the source and the potential factors and their impact on the behaviour you are seeing. He shows you everything with great detail, he shares a lot of material and provides a lot of support for when you work on your own. We look forward to continue working with him. We just can’t recommend him enough!

  • Janet (Thursday, March 07 24 06:18 pm GMT)

    After a long phone conversation about Toby, Jon came out to meet him and the session exceeded my expectations. Toby is fearful of strangers and will bark and lunge if they approach too near to him. Jon's strategies to help Toby worked so well that by the end of the session, he allowed Jon to stroke him. Jon followed up the session with a detailed training plan which I am sure will help Toby overcome his fears. I highly recommend Jon, he has a lovely, kind approach to training.

  • Lynn Hollingsworth (Thursday, February 22 24 06:48 pm GMT)

    I have nothing but praise for Jon. He is so knowledgeable and passionate about what he does. So much so, that I feel I have learned so much about my dog Stanley today, and can't wait to put it all into practice. I have worried about my boy, as I have been told he is a reactive, aggressive dog. This I found really difficult to believe as I always felt there was a reason for his behaviour. Within minutes of meeting him, Jon told me Stanley wasn't aggressive, but he was a very nervous anxious dog. He said that he lacked confidence and couldn't work his way out of situations. It made sense to me. Jon explained Stanley's body language. It was clear he really understood him. Stanley is ball obsessed, and in all his five years, has never dropped a ball, when asked to do so. It took Jon all of five minutes to teach Stanley how to do this!! It was so lovely to watch. Jon has put me a plan together for us to work on till we see him again. I can't wait to get started.

  • Peter (Wednesday, February 21 24 08:02 am GMT)

    Wow - Thanks Jon, An awful lot to take in!!... I have already stopped Marley barking at feeding times and bought a stick toy which is helping to distract him. I'm rewarding him for good behaviour and his barking has decreased significantly already!

  • Rachelle Donson (Thursday, February 08 24 08:12 pm GMT)

    I have a very lively stubborn spaniel who doesn’t want to do what I tell her lol. Within an hour of being here, Jon had her fetching and playing (which she never does) running like a mad one in the garden & introduced a boundary line which I’ve tried tonight and has worked. Look forward to working together to get my dog less stubborn. Would highly recommend and he is very knowledgable

  • Jackie (Friday, January 26 24 12:59 am GMT)

    Incredible trainer!

    We first contacted Jon following a recommendation from a doggy daycare our German Shepherd used to attend as a puppy following a negative incident there. Jon helped us learn more about her body language, her nervousness, trigger stacking, and how to reduce her resource guarding. Her nervousness improved, but it came back worse after a few negative incidents with uncontrolled off-leash dogs to the point where she bit a dog that charged directly at her. That's when we contacted Jon again. He reassured us that we could help Suki feel more confident around dogs again and, having assessed her before, knew that she wasn't aggressive, just anxious, and sent us a ton of resources to start working on with her. As anyone who's worked with Jon knows it's not a short-term fix, but we've been able to go from Suki lunging and fixating on dogs and people on the street to being able to stand to the side calmly while they pass. She doesn't pull on the leash anywhere near as much and she focuses on us so much more. Our relationship with her has improved so much. Jon's knowledge of how to work with dogs, and how to help humans communicate with dogs in a way they'll understand, is second to none. His training methods are so compassionate and kind, and that makes all the difference! We feel so much more confident as dog guardians, and it's all thanks to him

  • Sarah (Friday, January 26 24 12:58 am GMT)

    Outstanding Experience !!

    Absolutely outstanding experience, gutted I didn’t explore this service sooner to give my baby a happier time. Can clearly see a way forward with the family and the ongoing assistance of Jon, the welfare of my best friend always being paramount

  • Aurora (Friday, January 26 24 12:56 am GMT)

    There’s probably not enough space for how amazed we are with Canine Assist. We have a Labrador that has shown aggressive behaviour towards people without dogs and visitors to our house. Our initial consultation we were blown away with, especially Jon’s knowledge and passion for the job he does. I was dreading our first face to face meeting as I imagined our lab being in his crate as he wouldn’t stop barking but I couldn’t have been more wrong. Within 30 minutes Jon was training through play in the garden with myself and my husband watching from a distance. The same day we received a detailed training plan to get started asap. I would honestly recommend Canine Assist to anyone and everyone I can’t wait to practice what we’ve learnt.

  • Ian Aram (Wednesday, January 17 24 05:10 pm GMT)

    We had our first session with Jon on Monday. He is amazing very friendly, explains in away that is very easy to understand, could not recommend him enough. Top man, top service, you won't be disappointed.

  • Jo Sarson (Tuesday, December 05 23 01:29 pm GMT)

    We got in touch with Jon after a recommendation, we needed some help and support with our dog when visitors enter the house. Before the consultation we had a great initial phone call with Jon who listened to our concerns and told us what his plan of action would be and next steps. We then had our 2 hr training session and Jon was amazing at adapting his techniques based on how Bo was reacting to the situation. Due to be part collie he can get frustrated quite quickly, Jon showed us various techniques to help defuse this situation when it happens but also how to avoid getting to this state in the first place with visitor protocol. Thank you Jon for your advice we are feeling super motivated to continue our training journey!

  • Jo Byrne (Tuesday, December 05 23 01:28 pm GMT)

    We have 2 spaniels that are very over excitable and our oldest one also has developed a difficulty in going out with our dog Walker- Jon made everything make sense- I was amazed at the results achieved- even in the hour and a half Jon was with us- thank you jon- I’ll definitely going to be trying to follow the plan you set out x I feel very hopeful x

  • Natalie (Wednesday, November 22 23 03:02 pm GMT)

    We had our first session with Jon yesterday.
    Jon was very patient, listened to our problems and explained things in a very simple way that made a lot of sense to why we are having the problems!
    His methods were easy to follow and we saw improvement within the 1 session.
    I’m looking forward to getting the plan and working through it to carry on the improvement.
    We asked Jon for help with our Luna’s reactive behaviour towards other dogs when we are out walking and it turns out it may be our other dog Monty who is very submissive when meeting other dogs that is bringing in her reactivity….i would never have thought that if it hadn’t been for Jon’s session!

  • Kerrie Bates (Wednesday, November 22 23 09:23 am GMT)

    I wanted to book a dog trainer to work on some behaviour areas with my 2 year old Labradoodle Benji.

    From the moment Jon arrived he was calm, knew how to approach an excited and slightly anxious Benji and had so much advice on how we can improve Benji's behaviour to give both more relaxing and calmer dog walks.

    We worked on interruption and redirection of unwanted behaviour, recreating scenarios such as 'fake visitors' to train him to stay in the kitchen when someone knocks on the door. Some lead work outside to get Benji focussing on me rather than other dogs or people around him. And also simple things like leaving the house in a calm manner and how to reward Benji for good behaviour with treats and key words.

    It was amazing to see just how much we covered in our first session and what I can work on and continue with Benji until our next session. Jon had toys that he used in the garden with Benji to burn some of his energy before we started. It was really good to know what toys Benji actually responded to and what makes him work for the treat. Jon also brought some decoy stuffed dogs which he positioned in the street when we worked on how to approach other dogs on walks. This was such an interesting one as I wasn't sure if Benji would think they were real but he certainly did!

    ​Jon was great at giving me simple instructions that would make big differences with how Benji reacts to certain scenarios. He was patient with both me and Benji and we covered so much. Jon also sent supporting material after and was available if required to follow up.

    I would definitely recommend Jon if you are looking for quality training with someone who is obviously so passionate about dogs and getting the very best out of them. Benji absolutely loved it and was ready for a good nap after!

  • Samantha Smith (Tuesday, October 31 23 07:19 pm GMT)

    We have just had our first session with Jon to help our Doberman puppy Cooper with his over excited behaviour. Jon was so informative and gave us so much helpful advice and we now have a plan to try and help us going forward to help Cooper become a calmer and more relaxed dog. We also have so much more optimism having his support.

  • Donna (Wednesday, October 11 23 09:18 pm BST)

    We had our first session today and I cannot believe the change in my terrier already. Jon explained things so well and I'm excited to get to work. I wish I'd done this ages ago

  • Jackie (Wednesday, October 11 23 09:17 pm BST)

    Since you came round Emma's improved so much it's unbelievable. My Son was away the weekend after you were here, when he came back he said he wanted to let her build her confidence up in us. What you explained about her gave us a real understanding of her.I can get her out now, just on the front! but that is a massive move forward. Its not just Emma that has improved, but us to, we are so much more relaxed around her, and you have taken the stress away.Looking more and more likely we'll be keeping her.Know there's still a lot to do but all our confidences have improved.Thank you again, we couldn't have done it without you x x

  • Caroline (Friday, September 29 23 09:22 am BST)

    Jon has been to visit today, I’m very impressed so far. Lottie our beautiful black working lab didn’t have much interaction/socialisation as a pup through lockdown which hasn’t helped her, although her fear is genetic I needed to understand how I could help her. He was thorough and very professional. Straight after the training session he sent lots and lots of information, video links, a training program which is broken down into bite sized chunks. Jon will be back for a follow up, I’ve already recommended him to my sister. Excellent service, I highly recommend Jon

  • Tom (Friday, September 29 23 09:20 am BST)

    The reason I approached Jon for assistance was primarily an inability to take my Lakeland terrier for walks alongside a road. I am a week into the personal plan that Jon created for Abbie and already I am seeing a great difference in her posture and confidence. Jon has recommended I take things slow but l am delighted with the progress so far. Jon is very knowledgeable and experienced, he is generous with his time and has shown me much more with regards to training Abbie than I expected from him. It is going to be a busy few weeks or months but I have Johns support going forward which makes things so much easier.

  • Amy & Jasper (Thursday, September 07 23 03:24 pm BST)

    Jon was great! It’s clear he really knows his stuff and really cares about helping. We ended up running over our time because there was so much to learn and talk about but at no point did he cut it off and say your time’s up I’m off! He’s taken time to write up an extensive plan for Jasper and we will definitely be booking another visit in to learn even more.

  • Cat (Thursday, September 07 23 03:22 pm BST)

    Jon was recommended to us for our nervous rescue dog Cookie. The initial call was kind, helpful and informative, Jon is obviously very knowledgeable and caring about dogs and people. The home visit was great-we learnt so much and saw and practiced the training for key behaviours.
    Following the visit Jon immediately sent us a ton of resources tailored to Cookie. We have loads of work to do, but a bit more confidence and optimism.
    It’s great to know that we can contact Jon for ongoing support, and we’re enjoying using the games and drills he taught us. Feeling positive again !

  • Rachel (Thursday, August 17 23 07:41 pm BST)

    Well what can I say, absolutley amazing.. we had our first session today and cannot believe by the end of it, our reactive dog was walking with a slack lead past other dogs & a cat. Looking forward to continue practicing what we have learnt today. Cannot recommend Jon enough! Thank you so much

  • Sam Nichols (Thursday, August 17 23 04:57 pm BST)

    Wow - what can we say! It’s only be two days since Jon came to meet Bailey and help us out with his needs. We feel more confident and calmer in dealing with Bailey and the transformation in such a short timescale is amazing. Thank you so much.

  • Emma (Wednesday, August 16 23 05:53 pm BST)

    Thanks so much for today - we feel so much more confident; now knowing what we need to do and we are really looking forward to putting all that we learned into practice. Can 100% Recommend Jon at Canine Assist

  • Alison Terpilowski (Wednesday, August 16 23 05:51 pm BST)

    Could not recommend Jon highly enough. First visit to our nervous/reactive pup and to see results was absolutely amazing. Jon has shown us how to help her and we will be putting everything into practice. Also the, time spent with us, he did not rush the session and actually stayed nearly an hour later, Gave us a concise report with links to further help us. Jon is very knowledgeable and helpful and really cares with positive rewards

  • Fiona Fox (Wednesday, August 16 23 05:50 pm BST)

    Amazing dog trainer , I cannot recommend enough. So professional, helpful and knowledgeable. Makes you feel so at ease and helps you build your confidence with your dog as well as spotting behaviours and issues that need addressing. Follow up is also excellent. No question is to small.
    Thank you

  • Nina (Wednesday, August 02 23 03:05 pm BST)

    Awesome. Amazing. Professional and knowledgeable just some words to describe Jon- already in a short period of time see the work and difference in the issues we was having with separation anxiety in our puppy

  • Katie Tucker (Wednesday, July 26 23 02:09 pm BST)

    We cannot thank Jon enough for his brilliant, kind and well explained work with our Riley (and us). I am so excited to take his teachings forward and Riley has come on leaps and bounds already. Jon’s kindness, experience and knowledge is evident in everything he teaches. We have struggled with barking and anxiety around our garden and we could not believe that our dog ended up playing on the lawn she has avoided for over a year! Wonderful man and wonderful ethics can’t recommend enough.

  • Alison (Friday, June 23 23 10:03 pm BST)

    Works wonders
    Jon worked wonders with us - 1st time dog owners with a feisty pup. He reassured us and whenever we've had a wobble he's always helped us.By the way it was the humans that needed the training!!Highly recommended!

  • Andrea & Julio (Friday, June 23 23 09:40 pm BST)

    We were given Coco during lockdown as after 12 weeks it was deemed she had ruined family life. What had actually happened was quite the reverse , and we took on a almost four month old who was badly damagedShe bit a groomer and was showing all other sorts of guarding and anxiety issues.Jon came initially for 4 sessions and his intuition in working with Coco was evident from day one.He returned for another couple of sessions in which he worked on recall to our delight and amazement, she cracked it We introduced Bliss Jon's fabulous stooge dog and we got comfortable together in the park.We couldn't have imagined our snappy bitey little shark would ever calm down but with lots of positive praise and coping strategies we have. Walking on the lead , putting on a harness, recall, resource guarding, and back to the groomers, We have had a couple of setbacks but we have other online tools we can refer too . You need the best to bring out the best in your dog

  • AMY (Friday, June 23 23 09:39 pm BST)

    Absolutely amazing Dog Trainer
    Being a dog trainer myself meant it was difficult to reach out for help. Other trainers locally didn't want to know but Jon didn't hesitate. His only interest was helping.From our very first conversation I felt at ease.The reassurance he gave me at a time I wasn't thinking straight or even processing what was happening was incredible. I can't ever thank him enough for his help.Jon inspires me, his wealth of knowledge is incredible, and if I can become even half the trainer he is I would be happy.

  • Tracey West (Friday, June 23 23 09:37 pm BST)

    Jon was our last resort, as we thought we had an aggressive six month old Border Collie that we thought we would have to rehome. In a matter of hours, we had learned so many different techniques and how to help her rather than let the dog do what she wanted! We had - and still have - a very nervous dog. However, she will greet people and allow them to stroke her and, if you throw a ball for her, she is your best friend for ever! I cannot thank John enough as I cannot imagine life without her!

  • Shellley (Friday, June 23 23 09:21 pm BST)

    Gold star trainer
    The Man everyone needs, be it free advice from social media which I myself has took on board by the way , which I'm proud to say works 100%Put Jon's name forward to many who have asked for recommendations.You just have to watch Jon's dogs Bliss & Rebel That will say it all Wonderful ❤

  • Sarah Inasi (Friday, June 23 23 09:19 pm BST)

    Outstanding, patient and knowledgeable.
    I first contacted Jon when our puppy was trying to make a run from us and had no recall at all, a session with Jon and our girl was sat on her designated spot in the hall whilst the front door was wide open! Miraculous!!As part of my job role we sometimes need to undertake pet assessments, I put Jons name forward and he has worked with us now for around 3 years ensuring our foster carers are all pet safe for the children that stay with them, everybody comments how knowledgeable Jon is and how patient and kind he is too.I cannot thank or recommend Jon enough he is fab!

  • Ruth (Friday, June 23 23 09:18 pm BST)

    We have 5 noisy Dachshunds. We didn't know how to calm the barking or the excitement when someone came to the door. Enter Jon........ Now we know and we're working on it! Progress is being made and now we have hope. I can't recommend Jon enough!

  • Helen B (Friday, June 23 23 08:58 pm BST)

    Best ethical trainer
    If you need help or advice with regards to a dog then Jon is the person to go to. He's very patient and extremely knowledgeable and always uses ethical, kind & caring ways to deal with problems. We would 100% recommend Jon and have had him work with two of our family dogs.

  • Kathryn Buxton (Friday, June 23 23 08:56 pm BST)

    Patti chases anyone and anything, I sought Jon's help and he came and we had a 2 hour session at homeThe dogs interest was fore front and was all about rewarding good behaviour. Jon showed me tactics to help Patti show the desired behaviour in a kind and gentle way.I learnt so much and I received a comprehensive plan with support available at any time

  • Kerry Shaw (Friday, June 23 23 08:55 pm BST)

    We called on Jon after recommendations chatting to fellow dog walkers whilst out with our dog. Booking was easy, the initial call was insightful and the day came for our first training session, Jon had a lot to cover and we were amazed at how quickly our girl responded to his gentle techniques including games that she would unknowingly do in order for us gain some control when visitors come to the house and build on these to make better recall when out on walks. The follow-up assistance and him being on hand to help with calls whenever he's needed is reassuring, and another visit later on will help us, and we look forward to. Super chap, very calm and thorough, doesn't rush and is very professional. Very very pleased<

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!!




Andrew Glisson reviewed CanineAssist — 5 star

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
