Testimonials

Loved the Puppy Course and appreciated how all the dogs were treated as individuals, regardless of ability.

J Morgan, Aberdeen

 

I didn’t know what to expect and didn’t have confidence, due to my age! I really enjoyed all aspects of the course and am looking forward to Juniors. Support from Billie was a life saver! Am recommending she is cloned!! Had ‘light bulb’ moments all the time!

M Hay, Oldmeldrum

 

I felt the telephone support was outstanding and really appreciated the advice given prior to the course commencing. I feel this service was far more than what I would have received elsewhere. Great value for money.

J & T O’Connor, Port Elphinstone

 

The Puppy Class trainers were friendly, funny, informative, encouraging and dedicated – what more could we ask?

L Towns, Bridge of Don

 

This class has just made life with a new puppy much more enjoyable and less stressful, especially knowing that Billie is always willing to call/email if an issue arises.

J Woolsey, Sauchen

 

Great course. Billie really knows her stuff! Very enjoyable for owners and puppies and we are looking forward to having Marley back to Juniors.

F Ross, Bridge of Don

 

Great experience for all of us and the dogs.

D Leask, Udny

 

Really enjoyed the Puppy Course and Grace did too! Very informative and a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Looking forward to starting the Junior Course.

W Carle, Danestone

 

Streets ahead of training we took another of our dogs to. The party is a great idea – a fun enjoyable way to practice what we learned.

R Hogg, Whitecairns

 

Absolutely loved the Puppy classes. Full of humour, fun and helpful information. Put a lot of myths and preconceptions about training to rest. Modern methods and approach has given me greater understanding and confidence with my dogs. Still a way to go with the pups but an excellent foundation. Will continue with training. The trainers are excellent. Thank you!

F Hendry, Danestone

 

Billie has a wonderful way of helping dogs and owners achieve their goals together. An enjoyable and informative experience. Thanks and well done.

W Gault, Fintray

 

The class size was good and great for socialization. Instructor’s enthusiasm is infectious – the love of dogs is clear & all the teaching focuses on kindness & reward. I felt very comfortable with the training methods.

B MacEwan, Aberdeen

 

I’m sad the Puppy and Junior classes have come to an end as I’ve really enjoyed learning how my dog thinks and to get the best from her. Ripple loves her classes and learning new things and I had such a good time with her there – more please. I don’t want to stop!!!

K Auld, Whiterashes

 

After one week only, Freddy dragged me into the hall every time, even when I kept heading the wrong way to the door – he kept me right, so desperate was he to get to class. I also felt that I could contact Billie over any problem without feeling silly. She always had a workable solution, many of which have made our lives with Freddy much more rewarding. Can’t wait the Junior classes to start and that goes for Freddy too.

A Coxe, Udny

 

We have found the courses interesting, fun and very useful. We have recommended Positive Paws to anyone with a young dog. Best Puppy and Junior classes we have been to with any of our dogs.

A Lawson, Kintore

 

I have had such fun with Tig doing this course and taught her obedience in the process! Thank you so much!

K McGinn, Chapel of Garioch

 

Ajay and his family have thoroughly enjoyed the Puppy and Junior courses and have all learned a great deal and had lots of fun throughout. We would all like to thank you and your class assistants very much for all your help and support; giving us the best possible start to bringing up a friendly, happy and well behaved wee Puggle J

 

C Gauld, Turriff

Billie is a gem. Makes everybody feel welcome, her support is unfailing whether you have done your homework or not. Thanks, Billie, you’re ace.

L Ritchie, Newmachar

 

Fantastic trainers, friendly class J Feel lucky to have you at the end of the phone! Recommend to all new puppy owners.

W Reith, Peterculter

 

The Junior classes were informative, immensely helpful and a lot of fun! To see a puppy respond so positively is so encouraging and knowing that the training can be taken forward in other areas is hugely rewarding. Billie has taken the time to get to know the dogs individually and always takes time to ask how they are getting on. Can’t praise her highly enough. Thank you.

F Hendry, Danestone

 

Wish we had known about you and your classes with our first dog. The most useful, informative and friendly classes we have been to. We have all learned so much and feel we have happier dogs. Thank you so much.

K Milne, Auchleven

 

Sammy has attended all Puppy and Junior Classes with novice owners. We have all learned a lot with experienced trainer Billie and her great team. They were all very approachable and helpful. Would highly recommend.

J Cheesewright, Inverurie

 

Billie, you and your assistants are brilliant and your level of support is great! The Junior Course was fun and really helpful. The Support Sheets are a good resource to fall back on for revision. The benefits of social interaction for the young dogs is money in the bank! I have and will continue to recommend Positive Paws and have enjoyed the whole experience.

M Hay, Oldmeldrum

 

With having a Rottweiler, we knew that training would be essential due to stereotyping. We would never have wanted people to look badly on our dog. After going to the Puppy and Junior classes, we have been so surprised at how well behaved Xena is. She has such a wonderful temperament and Billie’s training has enhanced this. The advice given was exceptional. We could not have had a better trainer.

S Noble, Danestone

 

You have taught us what really matters and helped instill calmness in doing so. The positive environment, the way the classes are run and the inclusion of everyone, helping us all to set ourselves and our puppies to succeed, has not only been a huge learning curve, but a confidence boost as well. Thank you for that. I know whatever my puppy and I might get up to in years to come; we will have very happy memories of his early learning.

Susan

 

I would recommend Positive Paws to anybody thinking about getting a puppy. Billie’s (and her helpers) obvious love of dogs and enthusiasm made it very enjoyable.

P Reid, Balmedie

 

Overall, we felt this class not only helped us improve our dog’s behaviour, it also provided us with the tools and knowledge to teach our dog new behaviours on our own. We all enjoyed coming to class each week and found both Billie and Dawn extremely helpful when it came to specific issues with our dog.

S & L Morgan, Bridge of Don

 

A big thank you to you and your assistants for all your support, help, fun and games. Thoroughly enjoyed every single class as did both Poppy and Willow.

P Davidson & B McGuigan, Bridge of Don

 

Alice and her ‘fan club’ have enjoyed every minute. It’s been terrific watching Alice ‘get it’. Also been great fun meeting the other pups and their owners. Lovely atmosphere in the classes.

L Millar, Danestone

 

We had a great time and learned so much throughout the course. Thank you so much for your help and extra effort and support with Kimi.

B & N Grimmer, Kingseat

 

The course has been a very large part in supporting us with our new puppy, even though we previously had a fabulous pet. We would not have been able to achieve such a positive impact on our new puppy without Positive Paws. Thank you.

F Ross, Kintore

 

We as a family with a new puppy on board found the classes excellent. They helped us a lot with training and getting to know more about how dogs think. It was also great that Mia got to join in and feel part of the class which she loved. All in all this was a fantastic course. Great support. The classes were always fun and our puppy Bruno loved it too.

J Taylor, Inverurie

 

Jinky, my daughter and myself would have been lost without your help. Jinky is our first dog and we have a greater understanding of how to train him. You are very approachable and your knowledge is vast. We thoroughly enjoyed the Puppy Course and would recommend Positive Paws to any future puppy owners. Thank you.

D. Gerrard, Whitecairns

 

Logan and I loved the Junior Classes. I feel he is much more responsive to me now and he loves training. Billie was so helpful with everything and any problems you might have.
