We are very pleased with Leo our new Springer Spaniel. He has settled very well with our other dogs and has immediately made friends with the cats as well. He is such a sociable dog he is a joy to have. He travels well in the car and is so well behaved while still being fun for a game or a quiet snuggle. He has met our Grandchildren now and was very good with them. Leo has been fine with out free-range chickens, which is such a relief.
We have taken him to the clay pigeon range for an introduction to shooting. He settled well once he realised the big bangs were not bothering him and we had no problem putting dog ear defenders on him which was a big plus. It is so good to have a really well trained dog that is so responsive to new things and takes everything in his stride.
It was very nice to meet you and we really appreciate the time you have taken to discuss our requirements and supply us with the right dog. Thank you to you and all your Team at WKD.
Picked up Barney (fox red labrador) in May 2013 after discussing with Matt the type of dog we needed. Matt was very helpful in getting us the right dog and Barney is such a lovely well mannered dog that everyone in the family has took him to their hearts. He has such a wonderful temperament, great with other dogs, obedient and always willing to please. Thanks to all the staff at WKD Trained Dogs.
I have now had Harley, my black lab, for appraching a year and can safely say that he is the most well mannered, handsome dog which I have ever had the pleasure to own. There is hardly a day goes by without being stopped by other dog owners to say how well trained he is. I am every bit the proud mum – even although the thanks for his training goes entirely to Matt and the team. Harley is every bit part of our family and even my reluctant husband adores him.
I can’t recommend WKD enough, Matt takes the time to find out exactly what your individual needs are to ensure the perfect match between dog and owner.
“We selected Maggie ourselves from the same lines as our existing dog Dexter and after some research decided to place her with Matt at WKD for her foundation puppy training. It broke our hearts to leave her at only 8 weeks old, but during our regular visits we could see the progress that was being made on each occasion. Following the 8 weeks training, Fran gave an extensive handover in which she demonstrated what Maggie had learnt and helped to introduce her to our existing dog. Fran gave invaluable advice on how we should progress her training ourselves at home.
Maggie is a feisty, driven, cocker spaniel and is full of energy. With the benefit of hindsight we now realise how beneficial the training she received has been, which has enabled her to integrate with our lives. We would not have had the time, energy or patience to have trained Maggie ourselves to the standard which WKD achieved. We have recommended WKD to our friends and would recommend them to anyone thinking of undergoing the foundation puppy training course
