5 star review - ​“We are delighted with the results our trainer was able...”
Written on: 23/01/2018 by marshamills 


We are delighted with the results our trainer was able to achieve with our Doberman puppy in just two weeks. Not only were the results outstanding but so was the communication. Our trainer went above and beyond all our expectations sending us regular photos and updates in addition to the weekly email and facebook photos which were fantastic. Our puppy was very boisterous and struggled to express his excitment in a way that was socially acceptable. He came back just as affectionate but asking for attention in more positive ways. His recall went from non existent to outstanding. Jolene has brought no end of good out of our puppy she was very compassionate friendly and clear with her handover. We have been able to maintain the training since our puppy has returned home thanks to Jolene's ongoing support. It is fantastic knowing advice is there every time we find ourselves with new challenges, as first time puppy owners this is greatly appreciated. Thank you Adolecent Dogs and in particluar Jolene for all your hard work. We cannot recommend this type of training enough it was well worth the money and missing our puppy for the two weeks.

5 star review​ “Delightful, Sensitive Trainer” Written on: 21/11/2017

Our dog was super well-taken care of. We were sent follow up twice a week, photos, and a video at the end. Everything they said they would achieve they did. 
Handover was concise and targeted. Ample warning to be firm and consistent otherwise training is lost. Made us very careful once we went back home. 
We loved the communication. Just the right number of dogs staying at any given time.
Wholeheartedly recommend.
Thank you


We have a happy pup!” Written on: 25/01/2018 by jaymehta1


I would just like to start by thanking Jolene for her work with our young Golden Retriever puppy. She did an excellent job with the two weeks she had her. Poppy (my dog) learned the basic obedience commands as well as reinforced her crate training. When she returned home she retained the vast amount of it with minimal retraining. From all the videos, photos and discussions we've had I could tell that Poppy really enjoyed the training she did and has done ever since we came home. A keen student! I am very happy with the result and as a consequence have a much better relationship with my dog. Thank you again.
