“Excellent and enjoyable training boost for young labrador”
Written on: 19/11/2017 by digbysmum - 5 star review


"I was looking for somewhere to send our exuberant 22 month old working-type labrador while we were away on holiday. I didn't want to leave him in kennels and was also keen to give his training a boost, to improve his lead walking and recall, especially around distractions. Adolescent Dogs seemed an excellent solution and I am so glad we sent him. After nearly three weeks he returned home in excellent health and spirits and hugely improved in all behavioural areas. Thanks to his young trainer's intelligent, focused and kindly training he now walks nicely on the lead without pulling, has learned the rudiments of heel work, is responsive when recalled from play, has learned the emergency stop and now does not jump up when meeting people. Most importantly we have had two very helpful handover sessions in which we have learned the skills needed to keep Digby's progress on track; we are very aware that we needed training, too, that there will inevitably continue to be some challenges in our training journey, and his trainer is always available with advice and support.

We always knew we had a lovely dog, but training has helped him become a lovely and well-mannered dog. He clearly enjoys training sessions and on our follow up session he was so overjoyed to meet his trainer again that we have decided to send him to her again for a top up next year."


“Thanks brilliant, kind & knowledgeable Trainer ”
Written on: 25/10/2017 by fmrshops - 5 star review


"We are absolutely thrilled with the care our puppy Teddy received from Naomi and, of course, the training. I cannot recommend her highly enough - and cannot imagine a better place to have sent our puppy to be looked after and taught some very good manners whilst we were on holiday.

It's been terrific - way beyond expectations - and I will look forward to the follow up meeting with the trainer in due course. Whilst it was undoubtedly expensive, our puppy's time living with her trainer has given her an absolutely brilliant start and it feels like it has been worth every penny.

Adolescent Dogs were great to deal with and even when I had a last minute change to my booking they were incredibly understanding, helpful and responsive. It's no small thing - trusting a company with your pet. But the brilliant training and genuine care we (and our puppy) received from Naomi, plus the helpful administration team, has made it a very positive experience that I would recommend to anyone who needed it."
