We had great one to ones with Jo with my boisterous labrador Buddy. We improved his recall and walking with a loose lead and then continued the good work with the adult classes in Tangmere. The classes were great fun and really varied. Buddy learned some great new tricks and continued to practice his loose lead walking and recall at class. I love the positive approach in class and the respect given to each dog. Highly recommended!

I can't rate jo high enough!. My dog Toby was a rescue from spain. There was no chance he could be let of lead. Had no recall at all. Now he is loving long walks off the lead. Happy to come back when called. Jo has advised me with crate training,food, toys all which have been really beneficial to toby. Can't thank her enough!

Since going to see Jo,my pugs behaviour has improved so much. She's not as nervous and is a lot calmer around other dogs. I highly recommend applause for paws!

I am so impressed with Jo and her " training" Jo truly understands how dogs learn and how to help the owners to communicate effectively with their dogs Jo makes it fun for the dogs. Boris absolutely enjoys every minute of his lesson. Amazing skills I could not believe how much progress we made in just one lesson. Jo is incredibly calm and this helped both dog and owner to grow in confidence. It is so re assuring to know that we have her to advise and support us with our puppy training so that we can give our dog the best start in life. We highly recommend Jo; she is gentle and kind and has a most wonderful natural gift.

Jo has helped us so much with training our puppy Jeff, she has an amazing understanding of dogs and such a calm manner. As first time puppy owners Jo has given us support & advice which has helped us to grow in confidence. Jeff loves the training sessions and has responded so well to Jo's gentle approach. Thank you Jo, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you.

Really impressed. Haven't had a dog in years and didn't have the know how. Jo is extremely friendly clearly passionate about dogs and really listened to us mere humans. This really helped us understand our 2 year old staffie. Unlike some places who are more about money she was very honest about how many 121's we may need which is the very reason we would go back.

Jo is an excellent dog trainer! Jim loves her so much and goes into 'work mode' when he sees her (after he has a quick cuddle and kiss) Applause for paws come highly recommended by us!

Sophie Edwards

Giggsy and I loved our 121 session yesterday! Was so helpful to learn ways to combat any little niggles my 10 month old pup gives me (pulling on the lead etc) and find solutions and techniques to deal with it. Thank you very much.

Jo is absolutely fantastic. After winning her competition I am so pleased to have amazing advice and service. Nessie is extremely happy and will now progress in leaps and bounds with Applause for Paws dog training. Thank you for an excellent afternoon.
