Marita was the one who championed me to go get a diagnosis for my bizarre symptoms, I'm now on the last leg with an MRI due before Christmas and for the first time in my life I know why I am the way I am. She was the one who helped me finally sleep through a night after 9 months of horrifically broken sleep. She was the one who helped Pip end up with this awesome seesaw after being initially a bit of a pansy AND she was the one who told me where my handling was leaving Alf confused... That last one, I didn't have a clue about. The week after she'd created the plan of things to work on for Alf and I, in terms of handling, he won 85% of his classes, clear. Before, we were just 15% clear. Also - she's a committed tutor - she's on the system every day and the replies she sends are HUGE and so detailed. I can't really recommend it highly enough.

Marita is a brilliant trainer making each session fun and challenging but also at the same time no matter what level or capability you and your dog are at she works out a handling solution for you to be able to achieve the results and to improve for the future. I train with Marita on a regular basis now as she has given me the confidence to attack harder European style courses, train harder weave entries and learn that I can do it! Since training with Marita, we have qualified for Olympia won our first champ ticket qualified for Crufts next year and been invited to join the GB SQUAD!

Spice and I love training with Marita. She is really encouraging and challenges us at all times. Her training is very much geared to improving both handler and dog skills, explaining what is needed calmly, clearly and concisely. My confidence in myself as a handler has greatly improved and as a result, my dog is more confident in me. She is a great trainer and I highly recommend her.

I took Marita’s Reliable Running A-Frame online course and I am so impressed! My crazy fast border was a huge leaper, to say the least! And I am now amazed to see her performance: two consistent beautiful hits!!! The lessons were well explained, with clear videos and a logical progression. I am far away in Canada and I am so grateful to Marita for this online course. She is a committed coach, replying very quickly to our videos, and her feedback is clear, detailed, effective, and tailored to our own individual dog. The best online agility coach I ever had! I highly recommend her! Thank you so much Marita! Your advice and guidance has been invaluable.

Having a Boxer I’m quite used to trainers just not quite getting us, but I started with online coaching at the beginning of lockdown and it was exactly what I needed. Marita is so motivating and adapted the training so that Penny and I were excelling quickly. The change in Penny’s confidence is so clear and she genuinely feels a huge part of the game as opposed to going with the motions.
I’ve since trained with Marita in person and it’s so much fun. She works with the dog and handler in front of her and makes sure the dog is having the best time while still working hard and reaching goals.
Can’t recommend her enough. Thanks Marita x

As a dog trainer and owner of four dogs, I’m always looking to further develop my own skills and knowledge. However, with a very busy schedule, it’s difficult to commit to set days/times for training. I wasn’t sure how online coaching would work, but it really does and that’s due to the commitment that Craig puts in. His passion and knowledge for dog training and helping people with their dog shines through. The feedback that you receive from Craig is detailed, easy to follow and in bite-size chunks. Very quickly Craig is in tune with you and your dog and he adapts all advice accordingly. I’ve done the online training with two of my dogs who are like chalk and cheese. Craig understands what works for each of them and importantly what works for me. He pushes me outside my comfort zone, but just enough to ensure we are always developing and are still confident in what we are doing. I highly recommend online coaching sessions with Craig.

Craig assisted me on several occasions as I worked towards Search and Rescue Disaster Live Find Certification with my K9 partner Ryker.  I was a novice handler and new to SAR.  With Craig’s expert insight and instruction, we were able to pass both the FSA Type 2 and CE Live Find Type 1 tests on our first attempts. Craig’s encouragement to utilize clicker training with our switch to handler reward made a world of difference.

Circumstances (lockdown!) forced a change of plan to Craig's OT programme from our intended 121 training. As a result, I now have a young collie destined for agility training that will focus, tug and return her toy back to me for another game - as opposed to galloping around the field or regularly 'catching' my hands with her teeth! Craig noticed every tiny detail on each video I sent him and made many small adjustments as we went along. He gave massive encouragement to me and showed great sensitivity (sympathy!) to the dog. It genuinely felt as if he was stood by my side.

I believe Craig is one of the best out there. So far I’ve been to his instructors workshop, done an online course with him working with my own dogs and have now begun a professional mentorship with him and each time it’s gone beyond my expectations. Craigs great at breaking down things to be more easily understood while also inspiring and motivating you through the process. Couldn’t recommend him more and I’d happily do each service again.

Marita's online training has kept me motivated in reaching my goals from home. Her communication is amazing and she is so encouraging providing positive feedback for me. Her attention to detail is second to none. Marita's workshops are just brilliant! She always makes training fun, with lots of positive energy. Marita treats Mabel like an athlete - giving advice on her exercise as well as which diet will best suit her performance and recovery, I'm already seeing the difference. Marita not only provides amazing support for Mabel but also for myself. She has given me the confidence to believe in myself. She has changed my mindset to believe that Mabel and I can achieve great things in the years to come. Marita has allowed me to stop worrying about what can go wrong and get excited about what can go right. I am so proud of the skills that Mabel has already learnt in the short space of time we have spent with Marita, and this makes me excited for our agility journey.

I have worked a lot with Craig with my Collie cross Terrier, Percy, who does not like other dogs, during lockdown his aggression issue towards other dogs started to get worse, so I decided to sign up for 30 days online coaching with Craig. Wow what an amazing 30 days, Craig pushed us every day and gave me confidence back in my amazing boy!! The videos with feedback and instructions on what we needed to do next with him, were easy to understand. Working with Craig over 30 days helped me be consistent with Percy and we are back to enjoying our walks and agility training. I would definitely recommend the online coaching for anyone who is looking to improve their dogs training and it is excellent value for money!

I can’t recommend Marita enough. I did her six week online training and for the six weeks it felt like I had my own personal agility trainer. The training covers lots if areas and my messages were efficiently answered. Thank you Marita

Marita’s guidance on fitness and nutrition has not only dramatically improved my agility but has also completely transformed my whole life. She is always an incredibly positive and inspiring agility trainer and competitor, hugely fun to train with and has a massive amount of knowledge and experience in dog training and skills. Marita has also taught me a huge amount about mindset and meditation which has again had a huge impact on my agility but also helps me in day to day life. Thank you so much, Marita, I would happily recommend you to anyone looking to improve any part of their agility.

Craig has been simply the best support I could have wished for. I needed help with my then 22-month-old cocker spaniel who was not an easy puppy, with quite a few behavioural problems. With his help and total commitment to both my dog and myself online, Craig helped me work through different issues. I sent him videos of behaviour modification aspects of training, life skills, play and trick training. His attention to detail of teaching online with passion, care, love and understanding of dogs and how their brains work has given me the best advice to get the behaviour I needed with my girly. It’s teamwork between you, your Dog and Craig, I absolutely love putting in the work with my dog with Craig’s instruction. Craig is always clear and I feel very much without him being part of our world my relationship would not be the wonderful bond that I and my girly now have. All our training is with kindness and understanding of my dog. We continue to still do our online training. I always have questions and Craig always very quickly replies. Thank you, Craig.

I did Marita's reliable A-Frame online course and to say I'm happy would be an understatement. I'm over the moon with the progress we've made, it's so easy to follow and solve common issues and we're really successful with both dogs! Can't recommend enough!

Craig’s help to overcome my dog’s habit of parading with his toys has been invaluable. All feedback has been frequent, positive, very clear and encouraging and we have made so much progress in a short space of time.

The feedback from my regular students has been incredibly positive and they can’t wait until you come back down! They loved your no-nonsense approach and that you got stuck straight into training. You definitely challenged all levels but broke it down appropriately for all the groups and everyone learnt something new and went away with some homework!

I took the online running A-frame course. The instruction was super clear and easy to follow, no tricks or gimmicks just clear cut criteria and consistent training. Havent had a chance to test in a trial situation yet, but even in some pretty high energy situations, my dog is nailing it about 80% of the time. I am thrilled!

Craig adopts a different approach for every dog he works with.  He understands their character and mood and quickly assesses what is needed with each individual.  Boundless energy and enthusiasm that he passes on to his class.
