Donal, Frances and Oscar

We heard of Problem Paws from a neighbour who couldn’t speak highly enough of Joanne. We asked Joanne to come and help with our dog Oscar who was a bit highly strung. Within the first session at home Oscar could sit, stay and wait. The continuing success of the training depends on the consistency of the owners but Joanne is alway on hand via phone or text to give guidance and encouragement. We asked Joanne to come back and help with lead training since Oscar pulled like a train on his lead and appeared to dislike every dog he met. Joanne brought the lovely Shona with her to help Oscar with his behaviour around dogs.

As it turned out it was Oscar’s Mum’s nervousness around dogs that was the problem and Joanne gave a lot of help in that area. Oscar is now a happy little dog and his Mum and Dad are very grateful to Joanne for all her help. It has been worth every penny (and it has not been a lot of pennies to be fair!) to have Joanne come to our home to help with Oscar. We would regard Joanne as a family friend and never have to worry about Oscar because if we had a problem with him we know that Joanne is always there to offer support and encouragement.
