Our Testimonials


  • "Absolutely amazing!"

    Took our puppy in today who is a very nervous little fluff ball as he hasn’t had proper socialisation, within 5 minutes we were taken into a private room and the staff were playing and working with our pup to get his confidence up, gave us loads of advice and tips and were just absolutely amazing!

    The staff are so kind and so helpful, not to mention how knowledgeable they all are, they have a real love for all animals!

  • "By the end of the classes Ollie was like a totally different pup..."

    These guys are amazing!

    I’ve just finished Canine Capers training classes with my puppy Ollie. When we first came along Ollie was quite anxious and hid behind me for most of the session, but Bren and the team were fantastic at helping him to feel comfortable and take things at his own pace.

    By the end of the classes Ollie was like a totally different pup, his confidence grew and he was running around with the other dogs without the slightest bit of anxiety, and was often the one to instigate play (as well as learning a lot from the classes!). It was so lovely to see.

    The classes themselves were great and very supportive, the trainers are incredibly knowledgeable and always on hand to give advice about anything you want to work on. Would 100% recommend to anybody looking for a training class for their puppy!

  • "Very welcoming and patient group of trainers..."

    Wonderful pup class with advice on diet, behaviour, toys and health just to name a few!

    Pampered Pets really do make you feel like they care about your pet and the progress you make with them. A very welcoming and patient group of trainers which make the whole process just a bit easier on you as the owner.

    Highly recommend.
