Well Done Everybody!!!
Poppy, 8 month old Romanian Rescue

Poppys owners brought her to us because of her fear of people.

In her first session I spent the entire time trying to get within 2 metres of her and any fast movements would set her off barking, cowering and backing away.  I sat on the floor tossing bits of food to her, letting her decide to come to me.  She eventually came and sat approximately a metre away from me and we called it a day there as we felt that was a big improvement. 

Our second session was at Poppys house, where she wasnt keen on me entering the house, nonetheless we went out to the back garden and again I sat on the floor and let her come to me. Within half and hour Poppy was led right next to me and letting me stroke the side of her head. She let me stand back up and walked with me around the garden. 

Our third session was on Sunday and what a difference! Poppy waited on the stairs for her Mum to answer the door and let me in no questions asked. We went in to the garden and she was happy for me to sit down and even tried to climb on my knee! She let me stroke her head and along her back and side too. 

We will continue to see Poppy as she settles in further focusing next on walking and meeting dogs but her progress is fast and her owners are putting in a lot of effort and taking on board our advice. Well done to all the family and to Poppy on the progress so far and we look forward to going through the next steps with you too!

Roscoe, 18 month old Rottweiller X Labrador

Roscoe's owners contacted KRRs for help with his walking and recall. Unfortunately the family were also subjected to breed stereotype judgments which had made them even more wary about his behaviour. 

The first session was spent concerntrating on Roscoe's Lead manners to help everyone feel more at ease when out and about. In just 45 minutes Roscoe was walking nicely at heel and Sarah felt more confident that she could walk him by herself. 

Our second session was spent on recall and highlighted one of the wonderful things about getting a Rescue Dog... you never know how they were trained before until you happen to try it. KRRs managed to unlock his Recall Training and within half an hour had his unreliable and slow recall transformed into a speedy, 100% Recall.

Whilst there is still work to do with Roscoe and confidence to build with his owners, KRRs are over the moon with their progress so far and would like to congratulate the Marsdens on their Success!

Darcy, 3 year old Curly Coat Retreiver

Darcys owners got in touch with us for help with Darcys walking. They admitted to us they were, at that point, avoiding taking Darcy out to places where there would be other dogs. She would bark at anything moving and on several occasions had pulled Sue into the road.

We spent time reminding Darcy where heel was and introducing new rules that she was only allowed off the pavement once she had sat down and Sue asked her to continue on. 
 
After 7 sessions with our Canine Team and the Handlers/Trainers, we felt they were ready to move on to the next step... a walk at Stannah Estuary. Darcy walked nicely by Sues side despite Ria being next to her. As this was Rias first day working Darcy had never met her before making this an even bigger achievement. 

We finished the session by allowing Darcy and Ria to play off lead and it was lovely to see them happily playing. Whilst Darcy is now much better on walks and her owners are happier to take her more places, they have asked to continue their sessions whilst their confidence in her is rebuilt. 

We would like to congratulate Mr & Mrs Hodson on all their hardwork and progress!

Jacob, 2 year old Chihuahua
 
When we first met Jacob he was a very angry Chihuahua who protected his bed, food and toys against anybody in the room. The second you moved he was there to protect. The owners were concerned that was how he would continue to be throughout his life.

After spending some time talking to the family about Jacobs behaviour we showed them some techniques to enable them to have a happier, less stressful experience with Jacob and how to ensure their own safety. 

Just a short two weeks later, we went back to see the family and were amazed at the progress they had made. Such an improvement infact that both our trainers were happy to sit on the grass and play fetch with him - something we wouldnt have dreamed of doing on the first week! 

The Kirkpatrick's have clearly put a lot of work into helping Jacob and it is definitely shining through! Congratulations!

Boo, 2 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross
 
Boo came into our first class a very nervous dog, she was jumpy and wouldn't let our trainers near her. She wouldn't eat food in the hall and she didn't join in with the activities for the first few weeks despiite Kathy's best efforts. 

We spent time after classes playing fetch with Boo in the hall to make her feel more at ease - with the hall and with the trainers. We also used this as one of Ria's training exercises, to play with Boo - they ended up being good friends and often played through classes and after!

Kathy, her family and our trainers put in alot of work with Boo and boy did it pay off! Boo went on to achieve 100% in her Bronze Obedience Assessment - a KRRs first!

We are over the moon with Boo's progress and can't congratulate the family enough!

Mia, 8 month old Border Collie
 
Mia came to us as her family were concerned she was becoming reactive. Our initial assessment concluded that this wasn't infact the case and but she did need more socialising as she had missed out on this. 
 
She spend her last session playing chase with two of our resident demo and assessment dogs! Our team put the whole family in some extreme conditions to demonstrate the progress Mia had made and to make the family more confident. 
 
Congratulations Mia and family and well done on your hard work!

Molly, 2 year old Border Terrier
 
Molly came to us after showing aggression towards other dogs. We spent time looking at the signs for her owners to look out for and took time to build up her positive associations with new dogs. We have concluded her 1-2-1 training this week after just 4 sessions.
 
She spend todays session playing chase and fetch with one of our resident demo and assessment dogs!
 
Congratulations Molly and family and well done on your hard work!

Ella, 4 year old Springer Spaniel
 
Ella came to me after attending Agility classes for a few months. Whilst Ella and her owner enjoyed the Agility, Ella was that excited that she was missing all her contacts and often knocked jumps down. 
 
We spent a couple of sessions on contacts, by the end of which Ella was getting 90% of her contacts. With perserverance Ella is now hitting every contact thrown her way! 
 
We then spent a few more sessions on handler positions and accuracy...Ella is now preparing to compete in the New Year once registered! 
 
Great team work Ella and Kerry!

Bracken, 7 year old Parson Russel Terrier Cross
  
She has supported me throughout with my Parson Russell terrier cross, Bracken, in improving her behaviour around other dogs (she could be very reactive, particularly with Border Terriers) and working on our technique with agility. I have been fortunate in receiving one to one tuition, small group training and training through our agility club to improve my handling skills and partnership with Bracken.
 
Through one to one tuition, Bracken is now far less reactive towards other dogs and I feel my handling of potentially reactive situations has improved dramatically. Natasha worked tirelessly with Bracken and eventually created a bond between Bracken and her own Border Terrier, Stitch. We are now working towards creating a better relationship between Bracken and Natasha’s parents’ Border Terrier, Bonny, who is similarly reactive.
 
Natasha was a strong influence in my desire to start competing in agility. Although I had thought of competing, more for fun than anything else, I had no idea how to go about registering Bracken and becoming part of the competition circuit. Natasha talked me through registering Bracken on the Kennel Club Activity Register and supported me with my first few competition application forms. Understanding that I was nervous about what to expect, Natasha accompanied me to my first competition with her own dog and showed me the ropes. Since then she has supported me at the majority of the competitions I have entered, and ensures I apply to as many local competitions as possible. Although we are still competing at grade 1, Bracken’s confidence has grown, as has my own,  and I am sure we will progress further in the near future.
 
Natasha has been instrumental in improving my handling skills in agility, particularly with weaving which has been our nemesis! Within weeks of a few small group sessions and a one to one session, Bracken went from plodding slowly through the weaves with no understanding or enthusiasm to bouncing through them at speed. She has also worked on my positioning on an agility course and how to direct Bracken through complicated jump sequences. At the present time, we are working on contacts and distance handling which I know will improve our success in competition.
