We first brought Jefferson to Paws 4 Training when he was just 8 weeks old. He was teeny tiny but it was important for us to take him to puppy school as early as possible. He is a boisterous Hungarian Wirehair Vizsla, who is fast growing into a giant! Naomi’s calm teaching methods using positive commands, lots of treats and the clicker have been revolutionary for us, and people we meet often comment on how well Jefferson responds to us. The bond we have with Jefferson has been strengthened by attending classes together. Naomi has taught us to be better, more patient dog owners too, so puppy school isn’t just for dogs!
We will keep attending Paws 4 Training classes as it is a vital part of Jefferson’s socialisation and education. Having graduated from Puppy to Novice, we’re looking forward to seeing Jefferson develop into a smart and obedient dog under Naomi’s careful guidance.
It is clear how much Naomi loves all the dogs she meets, and we’re able to talk about all aspects of “dog life” including raw feeding, dog health and general dog behaviour.
Jefferson absolutely loves his weekly session and we are thrilled to have found such a great trainer with Naomi – Aimee and Joe with Jefferson
