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

Tracie and Basil

5 Star Bark Review

Tamasine was brilliant with Basil and certainly knows her stuff! She gave me step by step demonstrations of exercises I could do with Basil to keep him calm and control his greed, which I am now putting into practice. Tamasine was very patient with me as I struggle to remember instructions and suffer with high levels of anxiety. Tamasine was extremely professional, very friendly, polite and made me feel at ease. Our session was backed up with demonstration videos and an invitation to contact Tamasine if I need further guidance or have any questions. I would highly recommend Tamasine and will be calling upon her services again in the near future.

My dog is a big rescue from Spain and came with lots of baggage . He was a victim that didn't have a voice and used normal but unacceptable behaviour to show his feelings . Two days working with Tamasine as part of the family and we are all in a better place, a happier more confident  dog and owner . No longer worrying about him being a bad dog, just a dog that was crying out for help. She was the help we needed with a service that starts before the home visit and follows through after  with help and advice for as long as needed. Massive thank you Sheila , Simon and Big Boy Benji

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

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!

Jane and Ellis – with Maisie

5 Star Bark Review

Tamasine responded to our cry for help with our 8 month old Labrador, offering lots of email support before we even committed to a home visit. We saw just by using the emailed information a marked improvement in Maisie’s behaviour so booked a home visit to learn some more good practices. From the moment Tamasine walked through our door everything she demonstrated made sense. Maisie is not our first Labrador but hadn’t come across this impulsivity/lack of frustration tolerance before to this degree. Tamasine explained all this the why and how’s she was excellent. Went over and above her time with us and is still there for support. No taking her money and that’s it. We have a detailed programme to follow emailed quickly to us . We are already noticing a difference in Maisie’s behaviour. Just can’t thank Tamasine enough.

Glyn & Nelson



Hello, things are going really well with Nelson. His concentration is so good now and he is definitely focused on us, when we are out we sit and treat him when other dogs are around and he is only interested in us. Yesterday we took him to our local, the first time for about 8 weeks, and he was brilliant. We asked the landlady beforehand not to feed him and when he first saw her it was the old Nelson but we got his attention straight away and it ended up with her walking right by him and he took no notice, he was a pleasure to have in there and we cannot believe the change in him.

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!
