I can strongly recommend Julie
Assistance dog training is largely based on positive reinforcement “clicker” type techniques and there is a lingering suspicion of harsher methods in the gundog world. However I can strongly recommend Julie as a kind humane dog trainer with absolutely no concerns about her methods.
These start with simple basics and build up in small steps. The puppy and I had a huge amount of fun, and greatly benefited from sessions in the company of some of her experienced working dogs, as well as with other puppies. Indeed when the time came for that puppy to move on to Boarding School for his advanced Assistance Dog training, I was fortunate to obtain another puppy, also sired by Cash, which has shown the same desirable qualities of a calm temperament and eagerness to please. Under Julie’s guidance he is now taking his first steps in the competition world.
