We explained before booking the group session that our dog was a rescue and new to us, and that she seemed to have had no previous training experience. She doesn't even know the most basic of instruction. However, we were told that was no problem, and should still come along and participate. When we turned up today it was clear that the other dogs in training were at a much more advanced level, and were being taught more than just the basics. What annoyed me, however, is that we were just left to our own to watch the other dogs being trained (there was no attempt by the trainer to integrate our dog). Total waste of our time and of £15, sitting off to one side like lemons. EDIT 3 June: Thank you for your response, but if you bothered to read my Google review properly, you would see that I stated we discussed in full the background to our dog with yourselves beforehand and this group session was the session you advised us to book ! I'm also disappointed that asked me today to remove my Google review with the bribe of a free 1-2-1 session. Please just refund my original fee as discussed.

I can't say enough good things about Lee Valley Dog Training School! Dexter and I have had a great time attending puppy classes. The trainers are knowledgeable and patient, making it a fun and encouraging place for dogs and owners. Dexter's confidence and obedience have increased, and we look forward to each session. The small class sizes and hands-on approach make training fun and effective. I highly recommend the classes to any new dog owners. Huge thank you to Winston, Charmaine, Emma and the whole team!

Excellent school, my dog has only been coming here for a few months, but she has learnt so much, and come so far, and it's all thanks to Lee Valley dog training school. All the staff are really friendly, and Winston, Deanna, and Charmaine have all been particularly helpful and encouraging. Thank you all so much. Btw Winston, Rosie says thank you as she loves all the Sausages you have given her, and she has baked you about a hundred Chocolate and Lemon cakes 🎂 🥮

We joined Lee Valley dog training school with a nervous puppy and were so pleased with the relaxed and supportive team of trainers. Cleo was made to feel welcome and within a couple of months passed puppy school and graduated to adult classes. The team are always so friendly, positive and keen to provide additional tips and support where they can. This is a really excellent school for teaching and supporting you to work hard with your dog to achieve the best possible behaviour.

We started our training with a reactive and nervous puppy who we were struggling to keep on the right track. Winston and the team helped us not only fix her reactivity but build her confidence in so many positive ways. We now have a joy of a dog due to her training and she gets good mental stimulation every week in the form of puppy classes which she now loves. We couldnt be more grateful for the guidance and training from the school, our teenage puppy has a healthy outlet in the form of training and is a completely different dog. Thank you LVDTS

Winston and Team are just fabulous, can't recommend them enough. The 1-2-1 home visit when we first got the pup was great, really useful and confidence giving, it helped us work through potential challenges particularly with using the crate. Following this we have attended weekly puppy training group sessions and it has been a delight to see both the pup and my daughter develop and learn together, and looking forward to further fun now he has moved up to Middle School! There is a lovely informal vibe at the school, whilst still being very professional, and any nerves my daughter had about taking part were completely negated. The flexibility is also great - you can pay as you go and don't have to sign up for a set period, or attend every week which means you really can fit around other commitments.

Jess culver Google Review

We just finished our one on one session with our 9 week Rhodesian ridgeback pup Maui. After only a few days we found ourselves overwhelmed- not sure if we were doing enough or doing things the right way- anxiety was starting to set in- some may call it the puppy blues- but after one hour with Winston we feel relieved, refreshed and most of all excited for the journey ahead. He listened to our very long list of questions and qualms and gave us amazing advice which is working instantly- we feel ready to continue steering our puppy to be happy and healthy dog. Winston thank you so much, we can’t wait to join your puppy classes once Maui is fully vaccinated.

Limor Matthias-Joel Google Review

I've gone to LVDT since my dog was a puppy. Highly rate them and one of the only dog training schools that offer drop in training, rather than having to sign up for a course. I've learnt so much and the trainer, Winston is really positive and chilled. My puppy hit adolescence at lockdown which was really tough. I arranged a one hour home visit with Winston, the trainer, once lockdown eased and I can honestly say it's the best thing I've ever done. The transformation was unbelievable and just one hour of my time. The change in my dog is so noticeable that I've been asked for Winston's number several times. I can't thank these guys enough.
