Pamela & Suki

Working with Tamasine was so helpful and let me understand why to do things in a certain way would be beneficial to my self and Suki my dog .

It has only been a couple of weeks but I noticed even after a couple of days how much more responsive Suki was and now she is able to be left for over an hour with free run downstairs and is settled when I come back .

Yesterday I free reined her for the first time and she played chase with the other dogs and recalled to the whistle. A Great improvement .

Heather & Daisy

Daisy and I spent some time in the garden today retrieving, using her toy. She was doing everything fine. Staying calm, bringing it back to me, lying down and good eye contact.

Another achievement today - Daisy let me put her leash on by myself and without any treats to start. Several treats after though for being such a good girl!!!

I was so pleased to hear that you could see a difference in Daisy. Watching you working with her was genuinely a amazing. I can assure you I really try hard to follow you. I've got away to go yet but hopefully I'll get there eventually. I find it all very interesting.

Thank you again so much for all your help, we really couldn't have progressed without your professional help.

Karen & her ‘min pins’

Google Review

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.

Belinda & Buddy

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.

Karen & Bob

Tamasine has a tremendous affinity with dogs and soon had our 14 week old golden eating out of her hand. As she wasn't leash trained it really was starting with the basics but by the time she left our puppy was managing to walk well tethered to me, sitting before entering another room and had started to master down!

Quite outstanding really but most importantly she spent time supporting and training the humans and although not as quick to learn as our pup we did pretty well and have been able to build on what Jess learnt and with all the resources Tamasine has shared with us we are confident we will be able to continue to train our pup to become a thoughtful, kind and obedient canine ready to meet the world. Thank you Tamasine we would definitely recommend you.

Tamasine came to see me and more importantly my dog on Monday, as soon as she walked in I felt totally at ease, she spent 3 hours with us and was so informative and professional.

She explained in detail the issues i had with my dog and talked me through step by step how to work with my dog to achieve positive results. Tamasine also provides follow up information and is there via email or telephone should I need her. I would totally recommend Tamasine and Leadchanges.

Excellent quality dog behavioural training and after care service. Tamasine certainly knows what she is doing - both my dog and I look forwards to more training sessions.

Leadchanges are great. Tamasine is so knowledgeable and very patient with both dog and owner. The dog wasn’t terribly badly behaved, but she lacked confidence and got confused occasionally, leading her to guard stuff she shouldn’t!

Am very happy with how the training is going, and the follow-up support by email has been really good too. The program is hard work and needs to be followed consistently but I am really pleased with the results so far. I think the dog and I are both happier now. Many thanks!

I found Tamasine really helpful she has a natural way of putting you at ease in what could be stressful for your self and the dog. Her techniques are easy to follow and she gives very clear instructions and explains what and why we are doing certain things. She listens to you and will develop techniques to suit the dogs needs, Her guidance has given a way forward into the potential of reintroducing the dog to the rest of its family. I can highly recommend her.

Tamasine was prompt, interested and informed. She came and spent a considerable amount of time with us on a dark and damp day and 5 days later the improvements are remarkable. Thank you

Geoff Barber & Cora

Yesterday I had my planned visit from Tamasine of Leadchanges. To be honest I was a bit sceptical as you do hear so much negative about behaviourists generally from people who don't know. So to say I was happy is an understatement!!  From the word go I was instilled with a feeling of this is going to be good   And it was. I am too busy training tethered to Cora to write too much at the moment but I will add a follow up later however at this stage I am happy to give 5 stars plus and recommend you to the expert service of Tamasine who is not only dog friendly but also Hum

Tamasine was brilliant. Very patient with owner and dog. Sensible and logical approach to addressing my dogs behaviour. We will be getting a puppy soon so will be asking Tamasine back to help with training for two dogs. Would not hesitate to recommend. Thank-you!

Tamasine spent a busy Saturday helping us with Benn and Bella. Everything she taught us has been useful and we have seen lots of improved behaviour since her visit.

Most of the training is really directed at the humans, helping us to re establish ourselves as the bosses! But the two boisterous B's have taken notice of the changes. Tamasine is a ball of energy and positivity and we loved having her here.

Tamasine was very professional and easy to work with, she made it easily understood why we were doing what we were.

The training we needed was to get our dog Freddie to focus on us basically and know how to teach him what was right and wrong.

He has made fantastic progress and it was money well spent

Bark.com Review

We spent a fabulous introduction day with the amazing Tamasine, learning all about how to prepare for our new puppy. It is also our first dog so we have a lot to learn and want to get it right. If our dog can turn out to be remotely like any one of Tamasine's 3 incredible dogs, we will be so happy. Tamasine is patient and knowledgable and explains everything thoroughly (and has to repeat herself many times). She helps you to understand the reasons why you need to do the things in the way you do them as well as how this impacts on your dog. She also manages to make it fun for us and the dogs! After this intro day, I have learnt so much and can see how vital this training will be for our puppy. Thank you Tamasine.

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..

Spent most of Sunday with Tamasine and my little jack x cavalier Kotie and learned so much in such a short space of time such positive ways to train a dog and its owner.

I learned so much about kotie and how she sees things I had issues with her and her controlling me as a resource and with the new ways to change her mind set I have literally got a completely different dog now it tired her out better than any walk possible it’s mental stimulation and I feel like I have built such a better bond with her now than I had before I would highly recommend Leadchanges if you have any trouble with your dog well worth it x

It is only 6 days since Tamasine came to my home. My 6 year old Keeshund, Poppy, had a high level of excitement and barked incessantly. In such a short time Poppy is more relaxed, thus she does not have the need to keep barking, her barking is under her control. obviously it will be ongoing .

Poppy and I are thrilled that Tamasine came into our lives. Tamasine can certainly teach old dogs new tricks .
