Happy Dogs & Owners

We’ve been working with Emma for a few weeks now and we are rapidly gaining confidence with our puppy. Emma is always on hand for help and advice and even during Covid she has managed to use technology to still deliver training sessions.

I would always recommend Harmony to all friends and relatives it’s the perfect way to gain the experience needed to successfully train and provide the welfare needed for your dogs. Thank you Emma!

Emma came to see us and our 3 year old rescue spaniel who we’ve only had 5 months but have been struggling with his high anxiety issues. Emma is extremely knowledgeable and instantly Loki took to her and was learning within minutes of Emma being in the house. She’s given us some homework which we are doing daily, and we can’t wait for our next session!

Emma has been great, Benji has learnt a lot of new things, and is now a much calmer boy, just like to say thanks.

New Dog Owners

I couldn’t wait to get started on training classes after getting our vizsla pup, but then lockdown happened! I’m so pleased I came across Emma’s online puppy training course as I wanted to get started early and the course ticked all the boxes. We’re only on week two but have learnt so much already! We’ve made a good start on training and it’s a real benefit that Emma’s also an expert dog behaviourist. She’s given us lots of advice and I love her positive approach. As well, getting to know other owners via the WhatsApp group is invaluable. I thoroughly recommend the course!

Emma has been a great help to us and is guiding us through training our puppy Oli. We have been to in person classes as well as online training and I can’t recommend it enough! Emma is always there to answer any questions or worries and is a great support for new puppy owners. She has introduced us to tips and tricks that have really helped us! Thanks Emma.

Having completed the 6 week blended puppy course with Emma, it was apparent from the start that Emma is an extremely knowledgeable and compassionate animal behaviourist. Her love of dogs and total commitment to ensuring their well-being is evident in all that she does. Her advice and guidance has been exceptional. As new owners of a very lively black lab, Emma has helped us to become more aware of how our puppy thinks’, which has enabled us to better understand her needs and resultant behaviours. As a result, we have learnt ways to nip potential problems in the bud at an early stage, and to help our pup to be calm, better behaved and happy. Emma is truly outstanding at what she does, the best decision we made was to buy our lovely lab, the second was to enrol on the 6 week blended puppy training course, run by Emma. We can’t recommend this course and trainer high enough.

Sarah Greene

Emma is incredible, I honestly couldn’t recommend the classes enough. She has given me the reassurance I need to be able to train Marty with calmness and confidence that was needed! Marty has come on leaps and bounds since we started. The skills you and your puppy learn are invaluable for the rest of your future. Thank you Emma.

Melissa Finch

Just had our first 1-2-1 puppy training session and I can’t believe how much we learnt! We loved it and most importantly our puppy who is usually shy was instantly relaxed and had so much fun! Thank you smile

Rusty is a happier, calmer puppy after our 6 sessions with Emma – we’ve signed up for 6 more and we even love the ‘homework’.

Having Fun

A massive thank you to Emma for such a wonderful few months of training Mollie! We enjoyed puppy sessions and I learnt so much about the way I need to approach training Mollie. We enjoyed it so much that we started 121 agility training with Emma. The sessions have really improved Mollie’s behaviour and has helped me to learn so much about her and her behaviour. Mollie grew in confidence during our 121 sessions, and now happily runs up the A-frame without hesitating! We still have a way to go but I cannot recommend Emma enough. She teaches you various skills that are stimulating for the dog and helps towards their overall behaviour. She also teaches the owner why these skills are helpful and how to improve them, rather than just ‘do the skill or trick’ like I have felt in other classes at other places. Emma’s approachable attitude means training is worthwhile! 100% recommend Emma!

Becky Allen

1-2-1 agility training with Emma has been such an important part of our rescue dogs start with us. Bella is not the most confident dog and at first was very anxious. We can’t thank Emma enough for her steady and energetic approach. Getting to know Bella and understand her so that she could help her confidence grow. We are so pleased with the progress she has made in a short time. Emma goes above and beyond and really understands dogs.

Rebecca Woodgate

A huge thank you to Mallory, a really fun and interesting hour, we both thoroughly enjoyed it. Really looking forward to booking another session very soon. PS: Sorry Mallory, we went home with your hot dog sausages.

I initially met Emma as an instructor for Agility which I’m doing with my youngest dog Bonzo. We got talking and I explained the issues I have with my eldest girl Beau. She can be reactive when she sees other dogs when out on walks, I’ve been working on this for quite a few years and she has improved, unfortunately Beau got worse once I got Bonzo and tried to walk the two together. Emma has been helping me during the lockdown on Beau’s issues, we’ve been having weekly consultations via online meetings. She’s given me tasks to do with both dogs and I’ve then provided feedback on what happened. Beau is a hard one to predict at times, as she has spondylosis which is causing her pain, and this can impact her reactivity. Emma is absolutely brilliant, taking into account Beau’s pain and giving me different options on how to help her when out on a walk. I would thoroughly recommend Emma, her knowledge and support is brilliant, she cares about the dogs she is working with and is always at the end of the phone, message or meeting as required.

Dogs in Crisis

Emma has started to work with us to help us with some behaviours in our 1 year old. Her first visit was extremely helpful in clarifying the reason for the behaviours and the work that we need to put in to help our dog with them. Emma was clear, informative and helpful. We are looking forward to working with her and learning how we need to change our behaviours to help our dog.

Head and shoulders above a basic dog training course. Emma takes on the essential elements of training and details the tasks and exercises very clearly. She takes the time to tailor her responses to the needs of each dog. Week on week, you expand on your knowledge and understanding of your dog while enhancing your relationship with them. Our Border Terrier, Ted is learning some excellent new skills to manage his over- excitement with other dogs. Emma is generous with her time and ideas and has a wealth of knowledge to share. It’s interesting and it’s fun.

Barbara Sutton

Having just completed this course we cannot recommend it enough. Not only have we a more relaxed and happier dog, we too have developed into calm and confident “leaders” with a better understanding of our dog and his needs. The techniques used and training we have learned has led to a beautiful bond with our dog, who now knows what it is we are asking from him, and he’s responding very positively. The group sessions are beneficial and also reassuring to know you’re not alone with some behavioural issues. We gained so much more through Emma’s course than any dog training classes we’ve experienced before. Thank you Emma from Ted, Den & Barb

Denise Kellet

I highly recommend this course, the resources and personal attention you get from Emma are brilliant and being in a group with others gives you a different perspective on things. Looking forward to progressing on a 121 basis.
