I've used Cam for over two years and could not be happier and have complete trust in him with my dogs in his care. He's looked after my greyhound and dachshund with daily walks and obedience training. Both dogs have been very responsive to Cam's techniques and he's very knowledgeable and has worked bespoke training to suit the issues. When Cam first came onboard my greyhound could not even get close to another dog without barking and leaping into the air - and this has changed dramatically under Cam's guidance and training where we can now socialise her with other dogs. Cam's also super reliable and always shows up and on time which give complete peace of mind when I'm out. Could not recommend Cam more.
We first hired Cam to help us out with our puppy piranha Banjo, a kelpie x springer spaniel. He helped us with strategies to redirect her extremely persistent and enthusiastic biting! We also hired him to develop a separation anxiety/stay at home alone plan for Banjo (and us) because she was getting distressed even when left for short periods of time. He made her a personalised plan, helped us figure which parts of the house she would be happiest in, and made multiple follow up visits and texts. Banjo now sleeps on the couch when we go out and we are gradually increasing the amount of time she spends alone.
We have a Hungarian Vizsla who during the pandemic turned his terrible two’s and developed an unsociable habit of leash lunging at dogs for no apparent reason. For a breed that’s meant to be known for licking not lunging, we sought out help from Cam to resolve the problem before it became a real issue. Cam taught us so much more than what we hired him for - he went through the psychology of what Bert was going through and step by step addressed each issue including explaining why it was happening and coming up with tailored strategies to the breed. There were times when training that I was highly anxious walking Bert in the event of an incident so Cam walked Bert and I observed. Cam suggested times to train that we’d get the best results from - such as busy times at the cafe when lots of dogs walked past, or at the dog walking time in the park but it was always adapted to the dogs mood to maximise results. I couldn’t have been happier with either the process or the outcome. It’s been 18 months without a SINGLE lunge and I have a well adjusted and happy dog that doesn’t hold the stress he used to. Of course the only problem now is that Cam lives next to the cafe we frequent with Bert so we need to deal with Bert whining to see Cam each time we walk past as he adores him so much (an incredibly minor inconvenience for the outcome though!!) Highly highly recommend Cam 😊
We hired Cam to help us with our large, powerful and highly anxious dog. We wanted someone to walk her while we went away on holidays and realised we didn’t know anyone who could manage her. Cam did training in the lead up to the holiday and a mix of training and walking while we were away. Cam is very calm, patient, honest, reliable and is up to date on the latest research about dog training. Our dog absolutely adores him and she has improved substantially in terms of lead walking and managing her fear of bikes. Thanks Cam!
I sought Cam out after hearing good things about him from an associate. I was looking for obedience training tips for my two pups (one a Russian toy the other a toy poodle). Cam was full of great advice and very attentive to my dogs’ needs. They both also loved him. Thanks for your help, Cam!
