It is always great to receive feedback from clients, why not have a read of some of the letters we have received below...
Just a quick line to say thank you for the truly amazing time spent training at Bromyard. It has taken a long time for your teaching methods to sink in for as always, analysis paralysis kicks in! Going from puppy and handler meltdown to coming away thinking we are finally starting to get Some things right and as you said, the journey can be both fun and rewarding.
The amount of time, observation, patience and level of concentration that goes into your training sessions is just Phenomenal. For you, this must be not only tiring but stressful for perfection comes at a price! I hope you have a wonderful relaxing holiday in Spain, please say a big thank you to Maiko and also Max for their, as usual hard work and encouraging input.
Catch up soon
I just wanted to say thank you for the training day yesterday. It was fascinating and I have come away with so much information and practical advice and loads of tips - I have been remembering and understanding more today and adding points to the notes I made yesterday.
I definitely plan to come back.
Tenbury Wells was SWELL!!
The Chance arose to go away,
A place at Tenbury-Novice for to stay,
I packed the Dogs and Items many
,Collected together all my pennies,
With Bated breath and heart in mouth.
.I set out to meet new friends from North and South.
What to expect I did not know..
But given the chance I HAD to go.
The Dogs for Life Team are ACE!
We were so glad to be offered a space.
We learnt so much in such a short time,
The Whole package was worth every dime
.Philippa's teaching is the Best,
Her training filled us full of Zest.
To make things easier a delivery of BARF..
And I Exaggerate not, we had such a LAUGH.
The food was Great the Company Too.
..Next time if your Lucky there may be space for You!
!The Whole Experience was such a Treat
A better group of People you’ll never meet !!!
Can’t believe how Lucky I was to get a place on the residential !!! It was meant to be.
The whole experience was AWESOME and what a lovely group of people all personalities in their own right...I wouldn’t have missed it for the world.
Thank you so much for looking after us all so well-You Philippa and Claudia are an ACE team...
I now understand why Den has always raved about Philippa's teaching-her help with Kito and Tiy and especially my timing etc has been invaluable.
Both dogs did some Fantastic work in Wales yesterday...
Hope to hear from you in due course to confirm my membership details and I look forward to many more training sessions in the future.
Thanks again Love and Hugs to All-Ails x

Thank you is a bit understated for how grateful I am for Philippa and her teams help. After trying, and failing with more ‘traditional’ gundog trainers, I was on the point of giving up with my young labs training - we were both utterly miserable and I was beginning to believe I had a dog that wasn’t capable of being a working dog and that I was equally incompetent at handling him.
After much dithering I plucked up the courage to contact Philippa and with luck there a was a beginners course just about to start, that first morning I set off with my usual feeling of dread I had on the journey to our lessons, how wrong could I have been. I had the most wonderful day, everything was so well organised and welcoming, but it was the training that really made the difference, no stress, no shouting (no humiliation) – the difference all this and Philippas methods made to us was huge, he has responded so well we even look like we know what we are doing at times. I have now attended several more training days and observed at some of the more advanced as well, and we are on our way to becoming a proper working team. So again thank you and I look forward to continuing our journey with the Castlemans/Dogs for Life team. I only wish I’d found you sooner!
Dear Phillipa and all the Team,
I don't know if you remember me?
I was the guy who is training his first black lab - 22 month old Max.
I came to see both your wonderful displays at The Game Fair on Friday and Saturday, we spoke after both events.
I just wanted to drop you all a line saying thank you. Since coming home Max (my dog) and I have incorporated your techniques and style in our daily training together and we're really enjoying it!
Although by accident I picked up two furry toys at the show that have squeakies inside! I'll have to reorder some without!
Wishing you all the very best for the rest of the year, hope to see you again soon.
Chris and Max
