“Owning a dog is a privilege with responsibilities; not a right with entitlements.” RSPCA

What we do…

Puppy Classes (Family Friendly) 6 week courses with maximum 6 puppies

PUPPY CLASSES (FAMILY FRIENDLY) 6 WEEK COURSES WITH MAXIMUM 6 PUPPIES

Helping owners develop the puppy they have into the dog they want and offering practical sessions that reflect what they want to do in real life – go to the cafe or pub, trips to the vet, learning to greet visitors, be a great family dog and how to just be a well mannered canine citizen. Fun sessions that are not your average puppy class and help you avoid common pitfalls. Wheelchair access. More

Behaviour work

One to one hands on sessions with detailed personalised programmes to follow, video clip reminders, supportive literature and ongoing help via email or phone call. More…

Short courses

One or two session workshops on specific subjects for dog friendly dogs working on patience/impulsiveness issues like jumping up, improving and proofing the sit, leash pulling, visitors arriving. More..

Growl Classes – for less sociable dogs (4 dogs maximum)

Ideal for dogs that are not so confident around other dogs but must be human sociable.  These classes are not for human reactive dogs. 

WHAT PEOPLE THINK

Kat with Bailey and Lexi

Tamasine of Leadchanges is superb! Cannot rate her highly enough! She is not just fantastic in the session itself, but with continuing support in preparation for the session (getting to know us, our dogs and determining exactly what we needed from the session) but ongoing, with a report following the session, and actively encouraging us to contact her with any queries or concerns. She is professional, yet incredibly friendly, and clearly knows her stuff!

I can't thank Tamasine enough for her dedication and expert knowledge in helping me with my very nervous cockerpoo puppy and building her confidence. I would have no reservations recommending her to anyone. The help doesn't stop after the appointment and she genuinely cares about your dog.

Really fantastic help and advice. I now have lots of notes and a personalised programme to go through with my dog Kiki. Tamasine couldn't be more helpful and always ready to give advice on WhatsApp when you need it!

5 Star Bark.com Review

Upon arrival Tamasine got straight to work with my anxious Pekingnese Teddy at the door and after a few minutes he was ready to engage. Tamasine is wonderfully encouraging and really learns to understand the various issues our furry friends might have. She talked through different techniques in a clear, concise way and being someone who learns slowly I found it easy to keep up. I'm really happy I came to Bark and Tamasine got in contact with me because I can now look forward to the future with Teddy and helping to build his confidence as well as mine. The session is so absorbing the time flies by, which shows how fun it is to work with our pets and to see their world filled with joy. I only wish I'd done it sooner! The next few days after the session Tamasine generously sends helpful written information of the lesson including other useful tips. Thank you Tamasine for sharing your gifts with canines and owners! Wishing you all the best. Luke X

I cannot recommend Tamasine enough. She spent two days with my dogs. I have six. Although the original remit was to work with two of my dogs it turned out that the rest of the "pack" needed some behaviour modification therapy too! The two that I had the problems with were amazing just after a few hours of Tamasine's teaching. She is so knowledgeable and imparts such confidence that I am highly motivated to carry on. I have already noticed a big difference in the dogs. She has introduced me to scent work which I had no idea was great for nervous dogs. I have looked for a long time for a properly qualified dog behaviourist who knows what they are doing. She is a thoroughly lovely person too and very patient with this old lady who has trouble remembering things! Don't go anywhere else

Sue & Milo: Foundations For Life Puppy Class

Milo & I really enjoyed this course, it has given me the basic understanding of how to get Milo to listen to and obey my commands and given us something we can really build upon. Lots of useful information was provided as back up and I will be referring to this constantly. Thank you for an enjoyable course!

Tamasine worked with us and our Frenchie Buddy on Friday, and she was amazing. She is clearly very knowledgeable but is also very skilled at identifying the areas that you need some help with and she also managed to make the session fun for all of us.

Buddy's response to her was incredible, we have never seen anyone hold his attention for such lengthy periods, and he also clearly enjoyed the stimulation of the training. Tamasine followed up the session with lots of information, including video clips and we are looking forward to starting to embed the training that she has given us but we are also reassured that we can contact Tamasine over the next few weeks if we need to.

100% recommend! The home visit with the training exercise helped my Lola the Podenco so much. She struggles with paying attention to me and getting worked up over dogs and small furries on walks. The exercises we were given have already improved her behaviour so much, and it's only been 4 days! I also received a hugely detailed and helpful personalised program via email with videos, links, and advice as well as a rundown of all our exercises.

Tamasine is friendly, knowledgeable, and worked so well with my often nervous Lola! Can't wait to see more of Lola's improvements as we continue to follow the program. 🙂

I cannot express the gratitude and admiration I have for Leadchanges. Tamasine is professional and friendly a difficult combination to get right. My two min pins have very different characters and difficulties which needed guidance for us to get them back on track. Us guiding and them following not the other way round! Would recommend to anyone with problems with their dogs a first class service.

I have a golden lab called Mason, got him from a dog trust centre, I thought it would be a big challenge to train him as I didn't know anything about him.

So I had just two training sessions with Tamasine, Mason is a new dog I feel so relaxed now when out on walks and meeting other dogs, it was fun to learn new things and teach Mason lots of tricks..
