In June 2016 I adopted a rescue dog as company for my dog (and also because I had fallen in love with him)

From very early on I was aware he was coming to us with a few issues - particularly when on a lead out walking, or when we would encounter a small dog. He would shake uncontrollably, pull on the lead and bark. Most people (including me) interpreted this behaviour as aggression.

My husband and I had gone from taking our girl for long walks, off lead most weekends to not being able to go out in public at all with the dogs because of our new boy's behaviour - which was rubbing off on our girl.

I was recommended to get in contact with Sonia from ALL 4 PAWS by a friend.

I cannot recommend Sonia highly enough. I have been blown away by not only her ability and understanding of dogs and behaviours (and importantly the owner's behaviours) but also her knowledge, insight and ongoing support.

By implementing a structured home environment for my dogs I have been able to see changes in my dogs I never thought were possible. The results were almost immediate.

Sonia has taught me how to move up in the 'pack structure' and the (now obvious) mistakes I was making in the past, for example, by me pre-empting the dog's bad behaviour, tightening the lead and becoming nervous was actually reinforcing the behaviour - not preventing it.

Sonia's incredible skill and practical no-fuss training methods work.

My boy can now be in close proximity to other dogs (including small dogs) without reaction. He walks by my side on lead (not pulling me down the street) waits to be invited into the house and looks to me for direction.

I have a long way to go but Sonia has set me on the right track to having two social, well-mannered family members that I can control and keep in my company in any environment.

Thank you !
