“Excellent training progress” Written on: 05/01/2018 by JanieConacher 

Our 14 month old GSD has made tremendous progress in the 4 weeks he spent with the trainer in Reigate. His recall is now excellent whereas he previously ignored us if there were any distractions around. He will also respond to an 'emergency stop' command, and the video we received after the training showing him waiting and walking to heel,suggests that the training need lies with us and not our dog - something we have been working on at our follow-up sessions with the trainer.

October 2017 - "Thank you a lot Adolescent Dogs and to Petra my dog, Biju, trainer! She done a lovely job in only 2 weeks with Biju he's much better around dogs now which before was a real chalenge for me to stay with him close to dogs! His walk on lead improve a lot he sit nicely when asked so I'm really thankful to those people!
I would highly reccomend to everybody Adolescent dogs they really deserve their 5 stars rating!"

“Simply Amazing” Written on: 28/06/2016 by violacorvinus 

Our 5 months old Jack Russel girl Bärbel was trained. She has done an amazing job. Baerbel came back with perfect manners, at the door, in public, in a pet shop. Especially amazing is the Leave it command, anything dropped by my children stays where it falls. She did the handover with my 8-year-old son, who has a challenging behaviour himself.

I stepped back and let him have this handover which took about 2 hours. She showed and reassured my son constantly, corrected, showed again and was very patient. I think, this deserves extra credit an 8 year old boy and a 5 months old Jack Russel girl :).

She gave both of them so much confidence, that they are continuing the training on almost daily basis between 1 - 2 hours. Unintentionally this training was the best thing for our family we have ever done. I have already recommended the training to a friend. We also had constant updates via email and loads of pictures on the Facebook page. Considering the lifespan of a dog, this is absolutely perfect value for money.

“Fantastic results” Written on: 05/04/2017

Out 9 month old Cavapoo pulled badly on the lead, had decided that coming back when called was not for her and also had impulse control issues. After 3 weeks with Adolescent Dogs she is transformed and a real joy to walk. She also had a really enjoyable time. She had been back at home for a few days before our first handover session and it was clear when we met up that dog and trainer has formed a wonderful bond. We were sent numerous photos and feedback which put our minds totally at rest while we were away. Can't recommend highly enough.
