Here are just some of the reviews that previous clients have written after experiencing my services. More can be found on Facebook: @captainsordersdogtraining
"Highly recommend Debbie, she's patient and so understanding. Today, we had our second session and already feeling more confident. Best thing we did, getting in touch, and we can't wait for more sessions."
- Marnie and Frank, 1 year old Lab x Staffie
"Couldn't be more full of praise for Debbie. She clearly loves dogs and wants to help. She has been brilliant with my anxious pup teaching me how to help her not pull on the lead and get in the car without massive protests and stress. Debbie also told me when I needed no more sessions... a really honest approach to business."
- Wendy & Penny, 1 year old Labradoodle
"Only one lesson, followed up by walks focused on Debbie's advice, and my dog has already changed his behaviours, making our walks more relaxed and enjoyable. But most importantly, our bond is getting stronger than ever. I want to highlight the fact that I've been through training with other dog behaviourists and never had these results, turning around so quickly. Thank you, Debbie!"
- Francesca & Brodie, 3 year old Staffie Cross
"First lesson done today and already a huge change in our boy. Very impressed and can't wait to continue!"
- Lauren & Pablo, 10 month old Staffie Cross
"Absolutely fantastic trainer. Within 10 minutes of meeting her, we had a different dog. My Shepherd used to pull my arm out of the socket on a walk, but seriously, within 10 minutes, I was walking with him at my side!
We've done some Recall work today and if we continue with what we've been told, I can see a great dog being developed. It's worth stating that I'm not a novice, this is my 3rd Shepherd. I wish I'd known Debbie years ago."
- Paul & Simon, 14 month old German Shepherd
"Debbie provided us with 5 great training sessions which were exactly tailored to our needs for our 1 year old cockapoo, Ruby. We got lots of value out of the sessions and was great value for money. We really enjoyed getting a write up summary after each session and helped us remember all the tips and tricks we learnt. We would highly recommend her for anyone!!!"
- Sally & Ruby, 1 year old Cockapoo
"Debbie knows her stuff, highly recommend her, lovely lady, so pleased she was recommended to us"
- Sue & Ollie, 10 month old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
"Debbie’s love and understanding of animals shines through in the sessions I’ve had with her trying to improve some behavioural issues with my daughter’s Dalmatian, Tilly. She really knows her stuff and there’s been a huge improvement in Tilly’s behaviour. Debbie understands the principles of working with both the dog and owners and this has has improved my confidence hugely. Her own dog Captain is evidence of her skills and love for animals. I would wholeheartedly recommend Debbie to help you train your dog."
- Shelagh & Tilly, 3 year old Dalmatian x Springer
"First session tonight with my dog Bodie and I can already see a difference. Cannot wait to see what further sessions bring. Thank you so much"
- Sam & Bodie, 1 year old Old Tyme Bulldog
"Today we had our first 1-on-1 training session with our new best friend Debbie at Captain’s Orders Dog Training.. she was amazing! I swear she’s a hypnotist, miracle worker and dog trainer all in one. We made it all the way around Woodbank Park without a single incident, a cool-as-a-cucumber Moose and lots of up-close encounters with other dogs.. genuinely worried I’ve got the wrong dog today! I’ve left our first session with so much hope that one day Mooby can be a normal dog with friends and lots of new adventures. Moose is goosed now! Thank you so much Debbie!"
- Hannah & Moose, 2 year old Rescue Cross
"We booked in with Debbie for our pup, Dora. Debbie helped us and by 5 months old, Dora had learnt impulse control, specifically around food. Since then, Dora has learnt recall & a hard stop. Dora will now walk loosely on a leash which makes our walks a dream with no stress & without being pulled around. Debbie hasn’t only helped us with behaviours and obedience but also fun things such as “rollover”.
If you are in need of a behaviourist or trainer we would highly recommend you get in touch with Debbie! We couldn’t recommend her enough. Who says Dachshunds can’t be trained?
Thank you Debbie, it’s been an absolute pleasure to work with you."
- Danny & Dora, 7 month old Dachshund
"Debbie helped us so much with our 3 year old Labrador, she wouldn’t walk properly on the lead and barked at anything that moved while she was out . After a few sessions with Debbie and learning what we were doing wrong I can now walk our Labrador on my own and feel proud of her behaviour. Thank you so much Debbie for everything, you're the best. Would recommend you to anyone 100% simply the best"
- Donna & Dollie, 3 year old Labrador
"We cannot recommend Debbie highly enough! We have 2 Labradors one 2 years, the other 10 months. We put a lot of time and effort into the older one but not the younger so this was her time to shine. Debbie helped with some of the basics when walking through doors and using the command “Me first” we also worked on an Emergency Stop when playing ball. My favourite is the “Can’t reach” when playing ball or getting the dogs to pass you something. We had great fun working with and learning from Debbie. Thanks!"
- Mark, Jo, Jax & Jessie, 2 year old & 10 month old Labradors
