Testimonials

A selection of reviews and testimonials from some of my satisfied clients.

Phillipe has worked wonders with our GS meg, who needed to learn some manners. He has worked very hard with her. I highly recommend his services.

I would highly recommend. I can’t put into words how much you have changed our dog only been out today and already he is a different dog. I could not have picked a better person to come and what a gentleman you are also.

Thank you so much for all your advice today! I could have listened to you all day long! I would highly recommend your services to anyone who is struggling with their dogs. You have helped us so much! I wish you could have stayed all day to train our dog. If I win the lottery tonight. I will be hiring you for a week!

We found Phillipe very informative and helpful. We will definitely recommend him to our friends. He taught us things we did not know and will use him again.

Philippe did an amazing job in transforming our extremely aggressive Bullmastiff/ Boerboel cross to be a placid dog. Truly magnificent service. I’ve recommended him to numerous friends and acquaintances. He’s even been on the radio!

Philippe, I can’t thank you enough! You are literally Cardiff’s dog whisperer! What you achieved today with Bob the ASBO dachshund I didn’t think was possible! Thank you so much. I now know that he’s not in control I am, you showed me he can be calm and submissive in 2 hours, so I am now confident to continue being the boss of him and not vice Versa! Thank you so much again!

Philippe is the best dog trainer in Cardiff would not have anyone else train my dogs. Also, my Rottweiler is the best-trained dog ever so thank you from me and rock.

Philippe came to see my Dad, after re-arranging his appointments so he could see my dad sooner! You see my dad’s dog, A nine-month-old standard poodle, had pulled him over and dragged him around the park (he’d got excited after seeing his friend) and broken my dad’s collarbone in two places! Phillippe took extra time with my dad and was totally considerate of not hurting my dad’s feelings and had the dog behaving straight away. My dad still needs more work!

Philippe came over last weekend to see my German shepherd 9. months old. Gave us very good advice and training tips. listed to all Philippe advice and so far, so good. Ruby is now socializing with other dogs and enjoying being off the lead in the park. Thanks, Philippe. Will keep you updated. Ruby Sue Chris.

We had Phillipe around a couple of weeks ago for our nervous dog. He helped and gave us lots of advice and training tips, and our dog has come on leaps and bounds. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Phillipe to anyone, already recommended him to friends and family.

Within only two hours Philippe has made such a difference to our family home! Couldn’t recommend him highly enough! He’s absolutely fantastic, my dogs responded so well to him and he is so knowledgeable.
Thank you so much.

Really can’t rate this man enough. I highly recommend his services. He is fantastic! We are different the dogs are getting different and it’s just a happier easier household. Thank you so much.

Philippe, the advice you gave us is starting to pay off he is calming down although he still has his moments with our bitch it is getting less. The bitch is becoming more confident around him and others too.

I had Philippe over to see my dogs today, and he really is a dog whisperer! Within seconds of arriving he had them listening to him, doing what he said, and watching his every move! I cannot recommend him enough, he had a solution for every problem, and helped us in every way possible! Absolutely brilliant.

Philippe was recommended to me. I have two 5-year-old Cocker Spaniels who, though great around the house and with people, were very nervous around other dogs after being attacked when puppies and hence could not be off-lead around other dogs.

It has been a long journey but thanks to Philippe’s effort I can walk both dogs on and off lead around the park and both dogs have a lot more confidence.

One of Philippe’s strengths is the “trains” you as well and I have found this immensely rewarding as I can enjoy my walks again.

I would recommend Philippe to everyone and only wish I had contacted him when the dogs were puppies.

Philippe has been a great help to me in teaching our Border Collie puppy, Archie, not to pull when we are out walking. As usual, the problem is the owner, not the dog! Philippe has offered good advice and has trained me well!! I now feel I have the tools to continue our training together and Improve day by day. Archie is much better behaved all round after our time with Philippe.

Thank you!

I would have no hesitation in contacting Philippe again if I had any further issue with Archie.

Philippe has been giving me one to one training with my GSD Seve, who suffers with fear aggression towards other dogs. Seve totally respects Philippe and he has helped me to understand so much regarding my dog’s behaviour and in doing so, he has made me more confident handling Seve when amongst other dogs.

We are making great progress and I look forward to every training session with Philippe.  He is an amazing dog trainer and a friend who is always there for us when we need him.

Philippe had quite a challenge working with my two rescue Doberman’s who joined the family a year apart and who had very different behaviour challenges. He has been brilliant and worked with them individually and both together.

I have seen such a change in both their behaviour and particularly the confidence of the male who spent the whole of his two years life in kennels before coming to live with me. I can’t recommend Philippe highly enough,

once you have met with him and he has started working with your dog you will feel the same way.

We first contacted Philippe prior to choosing our Labrador puppy and he gave us some invaluable advice on what to look for and how to settle the puppy in the first few weeks.

By the time we met Philippe a few weeks into puppy ownership, we were quite smug with ourselves thinking that he we’d done well as he was already toilet trained which was great but we hadn’t noticed that he’d taken over the house! Our puppy instantly respected and adored Philippe although he scared me a little at first! Despite being quite boisterous and challenging he trained well… graduating just before 5 months!

We can now walk him off lead as he is so responsive and we have had many people comment on how well trained he is. He is still a puppy and is full of energy and enthusiasm but he is more manageable. Only wish Philippe would train the kids too!

Thanks Philippe, great job and Yogi misses you!

I have known and used Philippes’ dog training service several times. The first was for a Rottie x Dogue de Bordeux with really bad hip dysplasia meaning she couldn’t attend regular dog training classes. Philippe designed & delivered a specific plan for her, resulting in a far happier dog (and a far happier owner).

The second time was for a rescue Welsh mountain dog, who was nervous of the whole world. Once again a specific plan was put in place and he turned into the most fabulous individual.

The biggest challenge I have given Philippe (and my biggest personal challenge) is for my current rescue GSD. Her story is very sad, as she had been locked up since a puppy, not walked, beaten and not socialised at all. To say she is scared of everything is to put it mildly! She is a work in progress and she is making positive steps forward.

Philippe puts together individual plans for each dog. For the three dogs of mine that he has worked with, the approach and needs are completely different. Through positive training methods and a clear description of why these techniques are necessary, I have seen brilliant results.

I cannot recommend Philippe highly enough.
