We love getting reviews from you:

Clare, Andy, Juliet and the team have given Clemmie the very best start in life with fun, interactive training and regular socialisation with other dogs. Muddy Mutleys are the very best at what they do, and the results speak for themselves - Clemmie is a happy, confident dog and an absolute joy. We've found our first experience of dog-ownership to be a very positive experience and, as ever, it all comes down to the quality and consistency of the training. Thank you Muddy Mutleys!

Muddy Mutleys is just brilliant! Clare has such a natural and instinctive way with dogs. My puppy has such great recall thanks to her. I will continue to train with her 🐾🐶🐾 I highly recommend!

We got in touch with Clare to help with Margot, our very excitable puppy who was really nervous walking on the streets. In just a couple of 1-2-1 sessions, there's been a transformational change - we're out every day and even starting to let her off lead in the park.

Clare is a fantastic trainer, incredibly knowledgeable and full of practical advice for things that really make a difference.

We will definitely be back for more training and could not reccomend Clare highly enough.

We reached out to Clare after having some difficulty with our new dog with separation anxiety and dog reactivity. Due to the current situation of covid-19 our 1:1 training was turned into a virtual video training which I will admit we were unsure of how it would work.

However Clare made it work perfectly and we left feeling incredibly positive and with so much helpful advice.

Clare puts in a lot of work to make sure she gets to know you and your dog before the actual call so everything you speak about feels tailored to you and your dog.

I'd highly recommend this service to anyone. We thought we would manage through YouTube searches and blogs but having Clare to speak to who is clearly so passionate about helping was truly invaluable. Now is the perfect time to make use of some virtual training, I would really recommend this not just as an alternative but as a primary option!

Thank you Clare!
