2014 Testimonials

Both Suvi and Cody did beginners classes.  They both benefited from these classes and there was a noticeable improvement in their behaviour. Sonia taught us how to handle Cody and Suvi and get the best out of them.

Suvi went on to do intermediate classes. She loved these sessions and enjoyed learning new things. She now walks well on the lead and sits and comes when instructed. Suvi is now allowed off the lead in our paddock and doesn’t run off or chase the sheep anymore. She responds quickly to our commands.

These improvements are down to Sonia, who showed us what we needed to be doing. She explained how many of our behaviours can have a negative impact on our dogs behaviours. She also made me realise how smart Suvi is!

I have an 11 month Australian terrier, to say he is challenging is an understatement.

Spike and I are currently in intermediate class and have attended since juvenile. Sonia has helped us immensely in teaching me to stay calm and assertive and being the dominant one in a dog/person relationship.

Spike has come a LONG way, from a kangaroo/ mountain goat that eats everything. With Sonia's techniques, training and encouragement he now walks properly on a lead and sits/ drops on my command. It has taken a while for me and my dog, but so helpful in the long run.

Thanks Sonia.

Hi, my name is Tess. My husband, Mitch, and I started taking our dog Ruby to classes with Sonia after an incident involving our neighbour’s cat. Ruby is a four year old Kelpie/Staffy and is fairly anxious when we are out and about. She can be quite reactive to other dogs and animals, although she is lovely with people. We really wanted to have more control over her so that we could enjoy taking her out and about, rather than worrying if she would react to dogs.

The first lesson Ruby was very reactive and we were, as I put it, out in Siberia so that she wasn’t too close to the other dogs. By the end of the 5 weeks of classes (we missed one week), she is now a completely different dog. We were stationed only a metre or so from other dogs, without reaction, her body language is much more at ease, even happy, and we can walk near other dogs without her even looking at them. She listens to us, she watches us while she walks, not the rest of the world, and she is a brilliant walker now. No more sore shoulders from her pulling all the time.

We are so happy that we did classes with Sonia! We have a completely different dog.  I’m looking forward to taking her and our other dog Charlie to the intermediate class.

Cheers

We would thoroughly recommend Sonia from ALL 4 PAWS.

We completed the 6 week beginners training program and have seen a lot of changes in our dog which we didn’t believe would happen. We had come to the point where we thought we had tried everything and were almost ready to give up on our dog and send him back to the breeder, as we were experiencing a lot of behavioural issues with him that were really getting out of control. Since starting with Sonia we have learnt that a lot of the ways in which we were handling our dog was actually causing the issues. Once Sonia was able to identify our handling issues with us and we applied her methods, we saw the improvements in our dog’s behaviour and we have learnt how to manage him with a better level of understanding. In fac,t since completing her beginner course our dog is now able to socialise with other dogs something we never thought would happen.

Thank you Sonia for all your time and we certainly look forward to continuing our training with you.
