Here at Positive Plus we appreciate and acknowledge all the hard work owners put in, at home between lessons. We merely provide knowledge & experience – they provide all the time & effort, and that is reflected in the results they achieve. Some of them have been kind enough to leave reviews & testimonials – thank you. If you have worked with us and would like to leave one, we would be very appreciative.
“I contacted Martin as my dog had become reactive to certain dogs when walking her on a lead which, in turn, was making me very anxious and getting to the point where I didn't want to walk her anymore. Martin has been very reassuring and supportive throughout the training and his techniques have proven to be very successful. We started by going completely back to basics with obedience and I can't stress enough that if you follow Martin's techniques and persevere with the training you will see a remarkable difference in your dog's behaviour. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.”
“After re-homing a 5 month delightful Cocker Spaniel we contacted Martin to help and support us with a few issues that she came with. Martins vast knowledge and insight was a great help to us and even after a couple of sessions we can see a great benefit to her behaviour and she certainly is turning into a well behaved and balanced puppy. Thank you Martin for all your help and I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you, or call you up in future!”
“Martin arrived on our door after a desperate call for help with our two year old rescue Siberian husky Skye. When he arrived his calm manner had a overwhelming effect on our totally unruly dog. He brought her back to basic commands which he said would help and gave us lessons on our behaviour with Skye which we kept to the letter. The words free, wait, sit and down are still so much part of our ongoing training. Martin instructed us on all Skye's behavioural issues, fear, aggression and basic obedience. His calmness throughout all our training have been so beneficial to Skye, she learnt to respect us and as well our respect of her and helping her overcome the terrible trauma she had in her first year. Martins positive plus approach to dog training is truly fantastic, we now have a calm, responsive dog who obeys command and has even achieved more than we had hoped for. Skye responded so well to Martin and his training and even looked forward to it and waited by the door for his regular appointments. Martin is kind, considerate of both animal and owners needs, his manner and his approach to dogs is what every owner needs in dog training, feeding and training needs are something we will always continue and know if ever we needed urgent help with anything we know a quick chat or text Martin will be there for both you and your dog. We always recommend Martin with pride - if Martin can train our mad out of control Siberian husky (the so called hard to train dogs) and turn her into the adorable dog she is today he can train any dog.”
“I contacted Positive Plus Dog Training in February after taking on a rescue dog with very aggressive tendencies towards other dogs. When confronted with another dog (even if it was on the other side of the road), my rescue without warning would try and attack. When Martin told me we could eventually get her to a level of walking side by side with another dog I didn't believe him AT ALL, but thought any improvement was better so persevered. Throughout the training Martin was patient, reassuring, generous with his time and knowledge, and above all a genius; as I'm proud to say that at our last training session (in July) my dog walked alongside another dog without a care in the world, and even had a sniff at each-other. I'm overwhelmingly delighted with the results and can't thank or promote Martins work enough.”
“Martin has been working with us and our dog Phoebe using his positive plus dog training method. I am very pleased with her progress and am happy to recommend Martin to anyone looking for help in training their dogs using these effective and gentle techniques.”
“After getting our first puppy we wanted to make sure we were getting things right from the start as neither of us have had a dog before. Martin made everything so much clearer, gave us confidence and now things don't seem so daunting. We really like his approach and we will definitely use him in the future if we need to.”
“My sister got a new Labrador puppy. She and her family had little experience with dogs. Martin gave lots of very helpful advice and reading material to start them off well with things like toilet training, ways of handling and caring for a puppy. He demonstrated how to begin obedience training and how to play with the puppy to bring out the best in him. Really professional, clear and easy to understand advice. Thank you.”
“We had tried other training methods and turned to Positive Plus for help - it was the best thing we could have done! Martin reassured us that we could get our dog through it and provided clear, practical help. He taught us how to teach our dog obedience training and how to use that around other dogs (as our dog was aggressive on the lead). We can now walk our dog around other dogs no problem and are amazed at the results. Martin was great with our dog (and us) and I would totally recommend Positive Plus to other dog owners. If you are having issues with your dog or just want some training then give Martin a call. You won't be disappointed.”
“We have known Martin for 4 years, since meeting him when we were training our two Labs. He helped us with the training and has also helped us since with a couple of small behavioural issues we were having i.e. one of our dogs would bark at 5am to wake us up! He has always been very conscientious, caring towards our dogs and only uses reward-based techniques in his training. We would definitely recommend him and his classes to our friends.”
