WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Darren is an amazing trainer. When I first met Darren I was really struggling with my young labrador Brody. He was so reactive with everything people, dogs and he even barked at his own reflection in the window . We're still working on this but thanks to Darren I can take him for a walk and I know what to look out for through his body language. Darren is an amazing trainer who is so understanding of both mine and brodys needs . Thank you Darren
Life changing training from Darren. We were told our dog had cataracts that would have him blind within 12 months. We contacted Darren and he called to the house to give training to our dog, focusing on increasing his sense of smell. It's been 4 months now and it's like having a new dog. He is loving his 'smell toys', treat hunts and 'snifaris'. As dog owners we are confident he will have no trouble losing his sight as his other senses are better than ever. Huge thanks to Darren
How would you rate our services?: Excellent
Describe your experience: We met Darren at the adventure park with our 10 month old cocker spaniel, which is a brilliant set up for any dog to have so much fun. Darren showed us how we could encourage Ziggy to make his own choices, build his confidence and become a much happier dog. Ziggy has struggled with reactivity and since having some 121 sessions, where Darren has shown us some brilliant mechanisms to use, we have learned how to get Ziggy to look to us instead of reacting to a passing dog, Ziggy is now doing so much better at 15 months old. Darren's love of dogs is evident, with lots of enthusiasm and knowledge. The PDF he sends you after a session is brilliant as it really sets out clearly the things you need to work on and how to execute them.
We would highly recommend Darren to help with your dog training needs. We had been to a couple of trainers before but none of them gave us practical, clear tips on how to engage with and enrich our dog's life. Our doggy responded well to the training path Darren set us on. He is much calmer and knows how he should be before heading out for a walk or getting into a car, etc. Darren gave us lots of enrichment ideas also to help stimulate our very clever doggy too. Thanks for all your help Darren!
(Translated by Google) Many thanks to the fantastic trainer Darren, he showed us how to work with Shiba (German Shepherd) in a very simple and accessible way. Everything that seemed so complicated in raising a dog is now understandable and simple. Thank you Darren
Wielkie dzieki dla fantastycznego trenera Darrena , pokazal nam jak pracowac z Shiba ( owczarek niemiecki) w bardzo prosty I przystepny sposób. Wszystko co wydawalo sie tak skomplikowane w wychowaniu psa, teraz jest zrozumiale I proste. Dzieki tobie Darren 😁
I fostered an American staffi he is one and a half years old. He had absolutely no social skills, he was afraid of cars lorries humans other dogs and even the dark. I thought I took on more than I could chew to be honest. Walking him was a complete nightmare he reacted to everydog. Both of us would come home wrecked, incredibly frustrated and I really didn't know how I was going to fix this poor boy that was locked up and knew absolutely nothing about life. I knew I was his only hope so I wrote an email to Darren for help. He doesn't know it but I cried writing that email. He came like a real life Superman. He was honest, and super positive. He was gentle with Bear, he understood him the minute he met him. The two of them bonded and Bear loves him. He has the midas touch. If you have any behavioural problems with your dog please dont hesitate to reach out. You will enjoy each other much more. I really couldn't recommend Darren enough I know he has changed my life but more importantly he has saved my dogs life.
I've had multiple visits to the fetch dog park with groups of greys and also guide dogs. This is a fab safe fun area for dogs to play, explore and interact together all under the watchful eye of Darren, I highly recommend this place for any dog.
Darren is absolutely fantastic. Has so much Knowledge, great with the dogs and humans 😂. We have learned so much and seen massive improvements. The adventure park is great for safe play for our dog and will continue to use even after the training is finished. Would highly recommend. 🤩
I couldn’t recommend Darren highly enough! He has made such a massive positive impact in helping my relationship ship with Roxy! He is so supportive and insightful! I have made huge improvements with how I teach and understand Roxy that it brings me so much joy knowing we are reaching our goals! Thank you so much Darren!
Darren obviously cares hugely for dogs, and has a great understanding of their behaviours and body language. He's been a great help with JoJo, our rescue, and we're making great progress in restoring the confidence of our little rescue with his help!
Highly recommend the FETCH four week puppy training programme. Darren is a dog whisperer and we all learned so much from him. Our puppy adored him!
Darren is amazing with the dogs as well as their humans :) He is super friendly and knowledgeable and we have learned a lot from him. The adventure park is awesome and our dog absolutely loves going there! ❤ we would definitely recommend a visit to FETCH!
