Every dog deserves their day to thrive

Clare amazed me with her supportive responses, which are obviously exactly what you need when you are worried about an aspect of your dog’s behaviour. She was precise, detailed and analytical in her approach whilst also being very human (which in my experience is not always the case with dog experts!). She gave us immediate, practical suggestions, and then followed up with a detailed plan of action. This was all done over a zoom call and a phone call – I would have loved for her to meet us in person but even this communication was better than I had experienced with other trainers in person. I would highly recommend booking a session with Clare in whatever capacity you can!


So being a first-time owner of a St Bernard I was up against everyone! I’d tried two trainers with Sully, we actually got asked to leave one group! So when I found Clare I cautiously turned up waiting for the first task knowing Sully was going to wreck the whole event! As soon as he saw other puppies he was off. But Clare was calm…first thing she did was advise me on better treats…from there on in, very slowly Sully started to perform. Through personalised training and going above and beyond Sully started to improve. From thinking I was going to have to admit defeat to now having a family dog. Thank you so much Clare the Puppy Master for everything!

Clair Britton

I have known Clare for over a year and I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my dogs’ training, even though she’s an hour drive away! Peanut & I have attended Puppy classes & Advanced classes, including some Online classes, all have been well organised & fun. As a first-time dog owner, I have felt fully supported by Clare every step of the way. I trust her expertise and value her knowledge immensely. I would highly recommend using Clare.


We have been using Tom for a few months now and are really impressed with his easy-going nature and dedication to the training asking how we want to progress with the training rather than dictating what we do. We can highly recommend Tom as a dog trainer.

David Pullein

Clare’s advice has been invaluable in helping us to understand our rescue dog Baxter and his insecurities. After behaviour assessment and a training session, he is already improving so much. We feel more confident in helping him to live his best life. He’s already so much happier, looking forward to our next training session. Thank you Clare and Tom! Love that your training is completely centred around what is best for the individual dog.

Julie Jennison

We have used Clare’s training services for both our dogs right through from puppy class to advanced class and we are always so impressed with the level of knowledge, experience and understanding that Clare has to offer. I would highly recommend The Puppy Master for training of any kind, any age and any ability – she does it all!
