What people say about our dog training and behaviour services.



Julia with Angus
"Si came to us to show us how to tackle a few minor issues with our two 'kids'. Si was very professional and encouraging. So patient and we

(and the kids) felt very comfortable in his company. Si had a wonderful kind approach with us all!! Feeling so much happier since Si gave us

all some training. We are confident that with time we will achieve the outcome we desire. We cannot thank him enough. Highly recommend Si

as we think it would be difficult to find anyone better. Thank you Si it was an absolute pleasure."

The Nevilles
"Simon W from Sociable Dog responded to our request for help to get our 4+ year old, 11.5 Stone Newfoundland dog to climb the steps into

the back of our 4x4 vehicle; something he had been able to do in the past but suddenly decided not to causing us great inconvenience.

Simon was quickly able to identify the problem as a behaviour issue and not one of fear or health. Within a very short period of time he had

the dog racing up and down the steps with great enthusiasm. We were seriously impressed, and recognised Simon as a real expert in the

management of dog behaviour and thoroughly recommended him to anyone who is looking for help with their dog. Thank you."

"Bruno had a few behaviours that we were struggling with, so we sought help from Simon. From talking to him on the phone, I knew I had

done the right thing, Simon filled me with confidence that Bruno's behaviour wasn't as big a challenge as I feared. Straight away he gave me

some pointers and then spent three hours with myself my partner and Bruno, talking us through ways to challenge his over excited

behaviour. He was fantastic, Bruno was very sad to see him go and we were keen to implement some of these techniques. I would highly

recommend sociable dog, in fact I already have and will continue to do so, excellent!!"


"100% recommended! My little darling has some issues, but Simon has so much patience and is calm and extremely knowledgeable. Both

myself and my Jazz had complete trust in him from the off, and Simon has proved his methods work - and they are kind, positive methods.

Jazzy is soooo much calmer I have so much more understanding and confidence in how to continue in her outstanding progress . Jazz is

now teaching me all that Simon has taught her! she really has come so far and I can't thank Simon enough ?"


"I have worked with Si at sociable dog for quite sometime now and I must say I’m very impressed.

The love of dogs that Si has is plain to see and this comes through in his training .

Training methods are explained in an easily understandable way,and always have a back ground explanation as to why they work and what

you can expect to gain from them.

Since working with Sociable Dog my confidence around my dog has grown and I have begun to enjoy my dog and the time that I spend with

him immensely.

If your willing to put the work in I can assure you that Si at Sociable Dog will show you how to make great progress.

Give Sociable Dog a call you will not be disappointed."



"Simon is THE person to have on your side if you are feeling lost or anxious about your dog’s behaviour. He helped me to feel more relaxed
about Moose as a dog and coached me to use kind and effective training methods to change the things that I was struggling to cope with about his behaviour. With Simon you get the whole package… a raft of experience backed up by an ethical science-based approach to training dogs. But best of all, there’s no lecturing, blaming or finger pointing. Just a lovely light touch, lots of laughter and plenty of cheerleading for you and your dog’s journey”.

“The Sociable dog is the whole behaviourist package. Not only does Simon really know his stuff about dogs but he's also super easy to work with as he had a positive and out going attitude to our consultation. He has great people skills which can sometimes be hard to find in this industry. Highly recommended, you wont meet a better person!


Thanks for the help!”


Chris with Chilli

He has offered individual support and advice according to the behaviour needs of the dog. Simon has devised individual training plans for certain dogs, which are always comprehensive, easy to follow and monitor success. Simon is always kind, gentle and patient with the dogs and always uses kind methods, which we strongly advocate at our Sanctuary. Simon always offers follow up support and advice by telephone and is always available for follow up visits if required. Simon is always friendly, patient , sympathetic and compassionate with the hounds and the humans during his visits.”
