Testimonials: just some of my clients...








We bought a baby french bulldog that was misbehaving.  We had a virtual phone consultation with Nancy who gave us some helpful advice and suggestions. We have already started putting these into place and they are already starting to work. Thankyou

Carol Moody and Bruce

This evening we had an online consult with Nancy and wow, we are absolutely blown away! She has an incredible knowledge of dogs and the potential reasons behind why a dog would behave as they do. Instantly we felt at ease, reassured and supported in the decisions we were making.  It was clear Nancy cared about us and our dog as the consultation was tailored completely to our needs, rather than just a general discussion.  Nancy provided real life analogies and situations to help us truly understand what our dog could be experiencing. Nancy has provided us with a wealth of activities, ideas and suggestions without a) breaking the bank and b) changing our entire daily routine.  We cannot recommend her enough !

Nancy's helped me with my anxious dog Alfie. She's an absolute pleasure to spend time with, everything she says and suggests makes total sense and we've seen real progress as a result. Would recommend her to anyone who is struggling!


Hi had this little puppy called fluffy trained by calm canines and have to say she's a different little girl. :)

“Great advice given from Nancy about my British Bulldog Duchess. She's a nervous girl but with Nancy's advice she's certainly improving, highly recommended :)"  ​

Louise Ella Tan, Duchess's Owner


We cant thank Nancy enough for all her suggestions and ideas, after only 1 visit we are seeing real improvements and we're sure that before long Ted will become a calmer, more confident boy. 

Thanks again for everything

Claire, David and Ted

Hi Nancy, just to say, once again - THANKYOU! It's lovely to have someone from 'outside' to look in and give advice.  I will now stop putting so much pressure on me and Tess to be 'normal' and try and accept what I have, which is a lovely dog who is happy to sit by my feet and play with her chosen friends.  Will doubtlessly be in touch again.  Love Debbie

My dog Pixel and I attended Nancy's dog training classes in Staverton.  The advice and training she gave  has made a huge difference to us and has made a much happier dog (and owner!) Pixel can now meet other dogs calmly which wouldn't have happened before training with Nancy.  Would highly recommend !

Eileen and Pixel

It was a pleasure to meet Nancy.  She came out with us while we walked our staffie Rocky, who we had problems with reactive behaviour towards other dogs.  Nancy was very calm and explained what we should do to help him cope with stressful situations.  We went away a few days after the meeting and were able to put into practice all that Nancy had told us.  We had a great time camping in the new forest and Rocky was a star.

Susan Diamond

Max is on his third home and was struggling with anxiety and being calm around other dogs.  Thanks to Nancy's classes Max and I work much better together, I have more control and he is more focused.  The classes also meant that Max was ready to move on and start agility training.  Thankyou Nancy

Had a wonderful experience with Calm Canines.  Despite current coronavirus lockdown conditions we did a training consultation via Zoom and Nancy couldn't have been more helpful or wonderful.  Looking forward to implementing her advice and seeing some behavioural changes in my pup
