TESTIMONIALS

Excellent Dog School, my Cocker Spaniel Pup enjoyed her Puppy training class, and is very well trained now. My pup and me absolutely love Scurries Dog Training and our Trainer Emily! We made lots of progress and take lots of helpful advice and tips home with us every week! Highly recommended!

Jessica and Skye / Working Cocker Spaniel

Emily has been a revelation, my puppy (now 9 months) have completed two courses with Scurries and her attention to detail and preparation for each class is evident, and her lessons are a joy. Emily is always available to offer her excellent advice for general life with a puppy, and both dog and owner, after a course with Scurries, all are better for it! Emily’s approach is pitch perfect and I have no hesitation in awarding 5 stars and recommending to all.

Matt and Layla / Working Cocker Spaniel

I was introduced to Scurries as I have a Vizsla that I want to train using her natural instincts and willingness to learn, even though I have no intention of taking her shooting. Emily and Jay are putting me on the right path with their gun-dog classes. The classes are small, there is lots of great tuition and encouragement and the dogs love it! I go home with plenty of homework ‘banked’ and and am happy to say my dog is making great progress. I would highly recommend.

Emily at Scurries has really helped me and Molly the Sprocker get on the right track, thank you. The training is more for me than Molly! Practical advice, a consistent method of training the dog, and happy to answer any questions. It’s given me the confidence I needed as a first time dog owner and we are both looking forward to the advanced puppy course.

Rachel and Molly / Working Cocker Spaniel

Regular puppy training wasn’t enough for our Springer; we tried Scurries and never looked back! Emily’s passion is second to none and the results speak for themselves. We have completed puppy and advanced puppy courses and look forward to returning for foundation gun dog. Scurries provide the training that working breeds need.

Amalia and Digby / Golden Retriever

Couldn’t recommend it enough! Having tried many various types of training and puppy schools with my dog, Scurries has definitely been the best. Emily is so lovely, helpful and is always there to help. The classes are fun for both owner and dog and we have both learnt so much. The online classes have been great to keep up our training during lockdown, but we can’t wait to get back into the field with Emily to continue our training!

Thoroughly recommend Emily and Scurries, our pups have benefited so much from this training. I didn’t realise Gun Dog training would have so much relevance for pet dogs, it really does, fantastic life skills.

Jane and Milo / Cocker Spaniel

I signed up to have fun with my sprocker spaniel, to be able to play retrieve games and put in place some useful basics like the stop whistle and walking to heel. Classes are always relaxed and fun with supportive teaching. Jay and Emily are great at spotting where you can improve and after only a few sessions I had Bess retrieving dummies and delivering to hand.

Nicola & Bess / Sprocker Spaniel

We have had 1:1 with Jay and been to her classes and we are very impressed. Jay’s depth of knowledge means that she explains everything from a dog’s point of view which makes it so much easier to understand why our behaviour as dog owners has a positive or negative impact on our dogs. The lessons are really well structured and fun. We learn so much, but even better we are given tools and knowledge to continue the training. We love Jay’s classes because they really focus on our dog and what she needs to be happy and confident.

Bella at 3 months of age attended the Puppy Training Classes with Emily, being our first dog it was just as much training for me and family as Bella, now 1 she has come on leaps and bounds. 
Whilst I can say it was the best thing I could have done and how rewarding it was, there is no better acknowledgment and recognition of Emily’s invaluable classes than my long term dog owner friends telling what an exceptionally well behaved and trained dog Bella is.
