“Rachael and the team are amazing. We have an almost 6 month puppy who has been doing virtual Zoom training with Rachel since he was 3 months. The team are extremely helpful, responsive and our pup has come on leaps and bounds because of the training. We honestly don’t know where we would’ve been without Rachael’s help. So grateful to the Haven Dog Centre.”

“Rachael and Liam helped shape our Labrador Shadow into the wonderful dog he is today. Their advice has been invaluable and I’m so glad we decided to train with them while Shadow was young. If you’re looking for some support and guidance, especially while your dog is a puppy, I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.”

“The Haven Dog Centre was our saviour as we got a puppy just before the 1st lockdown. With the help of Haven and Rachael, we have managed to train our pup via Zoom and one fabulous face to face session. Can’t recommend enough. Worth every penny.”

“The team at The Haven are brilliant. We asked for help with our older dog who was just over excited when we went somewhere new. This is not great and made us all stressed, so Rachael suggested training classes. How nervous was I, terrified to be honest as I arrived.


“The welcome was warm and understanding. I learnt so much about myself and my boy. We enjoyed our classes and Eddie was exhausted as he had to concentrate so hard.


“We did not feel stupid and our successes were celebrated. Eddie would not do “down” but several ingenious training methods tried; he was not having any of that, but it was fine and Eddie was never made to do anything that made him feel uncomfortable but he was certainly put through his paces. We learnt loads in a very supportive and caring environment. Thank you.”

“Highly recommend, especially with the tailored new premises and space. Rachael taught me how to ‘read’ my dog’s behaviours, understand the lying causes and how to react in a supportive and positive manner.”

“We took Flo a couple years ago now and it was the best thing we ever did. She’s well behaved and as her owners we learnt alot. Would recommend haven every time.👌 They will even help you out of hours.”

“We will definitely be booking into the intermediate classes to continue our puppy training adventures – we can definitely recommend The Haven Dog Centre!”
