Your probably like all dog owners in wanting to get it right straight away? Wanting the best for your dog. Well I understand, I am no different, only the best will do for my dogs to!
If you live in Northamptonshire then I cover it all. I also dog train in Buckinghamshire, over to Bedfordshire, taking in Warwickshire and Leicestershire. Of course I am happy to travel anywhere to help any dog owner. Including London and all counties in between to Scotland.
Chris is helping my dog Jake, who after the loss of our other dog, behaviour was getting out of control, he’s always been excitable but his hyperactivity went off the scale & just a simple walk was a major task. After our first session I couldn’t believe the change in Jake, Chris had made it so i enjoyed walking my dog again & given me some great advice on keeping him calm at home too. Just had a follow up session in which even more improvements were made. At 7 years old I didn’t think you could ‘teach an old dog new tricks’ but clearly I was wrong!
I came for my first ever Agilio class and had a superb time. I really enjoyed it and think I was rather good. My human said the basic obedience ground work was really paying off, that the way I looked to her for instruction meant at Agilio I as able to do exactly what was asked of me. thank you Human Chris for helping us.
Hi. I just wanted to share a proud moment today. I have a young Tibetan mastiff who through a set of unfortunate circumstances developed nervous aggression and dominance. The result was 4 hrs in A&E with a friend he bit and a few weeks later a lesser bite to me. I so nearly gave up on him but three months later and with help and support from Chris he is a different dog.
The vets had become a traumatic experience for us both, even muzzled he would growl and bark and even snap …at the vet.
Today we went for a check up and he didn’t make a sound, allowed the vet to check his ears, his and also his feet and even stick a needle in his neck. There have been lots of milestones reached in the last three months but this has to be the best so far! We still have a long way to go but I am so much more positive about our future and the bond and trust between him and me is so much stronger.
I wanted to share this for anyone with a dog with similar issues to show that with hard work, patience and trust even what you thought was hopeless can be turned around
A big thanks from Nikki and myself for all your help with Alfie and Ringo in the 1-2-1 session.
In literally just a few hours we went from having a mad house to almost complete calm.
Still work to be done in following your plan but the results are extrodinary to say the least. Highly recommend anyone to do this.

Chris came to visit my family yesterday as my dogs were extremely anxious and lead reactive. As soon as Chris entered my house we instantly felt at ease. He was so easy to talk to and his wealth of knowledge is brilliant. He helped us to read our dogs body language and understand their behaviours and demonstrated how we can change them for the better. And in one session their reactivity was instantly lowered.I cannot recommend him highly enough. Thank you so much Chris. We are now looking forward to much more enjoyable walks with our dogs
Attended puppy training seminar on Friday. Very informative and somewhat reassuring – we are not alone in our miscommunications! Thanks Chris it is already helping and we are keeping our poker faces in place for the bad and rewarding the good. 😉 Excitedly looking forward to next week.
What a fantastic time we had yesterday at the group dog walk. Have started training today. It has helped to understand Mickeys behaviour and it was great to meet you
Chris to came see our dog called max who was slightly dog aggressive and wouldn’t walk to heel. After a visit from chris and dedication from us Max is like a different dog. We in herited my mother in laws dog. She is a gorgeous dog but no matter how hard we tried she would do the same as Max. So we contacted Chris. Yet again he has made such a difference to our household. Sadie now walks to heel on the lead and i can now get to my front door without being shoved out the way and go for a drive in the car without 2 dogs whining in my ear. Chris is a life saver and i trust his techniques. Thank you Chris.
Excellent Service, great value, all problems solved. Would recommend to anyone. Really impressed,…
Chewing socks, bouncing round the furniture, can’t answer the front door, pulling on lead, over excited dog. Get the picture?? Well Chris has sorted all of this out and more. Happy dog equals happy owner and happy owner equals happy dog. What more can I say other than Thank you very much Chris you are a master
Hiya Chris. Its one week on and Ginny is already loads better. Her new lead arrived the next day and she is getting used to it. Kong bought and in use and no more howling when I leave her at home and I opened the front door to the postman and she was as good as gold 🙂 .Hoping to come to your walk on Sat so will c u there. Oh and the trainers are happy for you to come to the club if you want to. Thanks so much Gail
Hi Chris what a fantastic day i had when you came and spend the day with me and Bella.
Our Westie bitch would bark and go totaly mental even with volume off at the tv to the extent we could not watch the tv and always bark when in the garden and bite if you touched her paws or put the lead on her .
After spending the day with you she totaly changed from a misbehvouring puppie to a more relaxed and behaved puppie.
We can now touch her paws and brush her without her biting and watch any tv program we want with no barking or going mad and pulling things of the table because the tv is on. I would recomend you to anybody who has problems with there dog.
To see her change within a couple of hours of you bieng with her is amazing.
she now walks on the lead without pulling also thanks to you it is a joy to take her out with us now.
Thanks Chris for your great help and training over the last 4 weeks ! Rigsby and I would like to thank you for all the tips and info. It was a great help. Phil and Rigsby
I would highly recommend Chris,great results,professional,friendly service. Thanks
Chris worked his magic on my lovely lurcher. It took a long time but was so worth it! Today we had a lovely walk. Thank you
After a very thorough and knowledgeable consultation with Chris we were able to implement the strategies suggested with our boy who was severely dominant and aggressive to our bitch. Within just a few hours things have changed quite dramatically and we have 2 considerably calmer dogs and a more peaceful household. I am very pleased with the service provided and highly recommend Chris. Thanks Chris
my lab porter and i really enjoyed our puppy classes with chris. we have retained a lot of useful information which we use at home and out on walks. chris introduced us to clicker and whistle training which is working well for me and my dog. i will happily recommend chris to any dog owner keen to enrol in training.
After re-homing Harry, an 8 year old Lab, from the Dogs Trust. We noticed that we had some pack leader issues in the home. I contacted Chris, who came to our home and noted the problems I had. Within hours Chris had taught me how to deal with these issues. His training methods are incredible. He communicates with dogs on another level. He has given me the confidence to apply what he taught me. All I can say is, thank you Chris.
Fantastic. I have learned a few things that would be handy for my dog. my dog enjoyed the agility and was a great way to finish the session. Will be looking out for the next event. Would advise anyone to take their dogs.
Chris was instrumental in building my confidence when I brought my two puppies home. The girls are well behaved, obeident and happy
We had introduced a labrador puppy into our household with existing 3 year old lab and they were fighting when off the lead – since our day with Chris we implemented his suggestions and now have two very calm dogs who are happy to play together – this was a massive success for us. Thanks very much.
We had an excellent day with Chris yesterday. We have had Willow for about 11 months and she had a fear aggression with other dogs when on the lead. Chris showed us how to manage this with various techniques and was easy to listen and learn from. His passion for dogs is obvious and Willow soon took to him and was a near perfect public when he had the lead
We had a one to one session with chris rose took on his advice and there has been a big improvement with walking both our dogs. We attended the event this saturday and were really surprised at how our dogs began to interact with other dogs. Thanks chris will be there next saturday. Laura and Duncan
Thankyou to the Legend. Chris started working with, Ollie our working cocker. He was very aggressive towards other dogs to such an extend that we simply did not enjoy walking him and had pick our routes and times to avoid other dogs. Chris worked with us on structured walks, at home and with his own pack and was ‘like a dog with a bone’ until he was satisfied that he understood Ollies behaviour. We were given a plan of action and Chris was in touch constantly to check our progress. We have just returned from a 2 hour walk, encountered many individual and groups of dogs with no issue whatsoever. Thanks to Chris this is very much the norm now. Thanks again Sam and Martin
After having such difficulty walking my dog bear (currently 11months) and getting him to interact in the right manner with other dogs I contacted chris. We arranged a 1 on 1 session at Abington park and within minutes I was blown away with how quickly chris knew what was wrong with bear. I had mistaken his behaviour for overexcitement, but it was actually anxiety issues. Chris spent 3.5 (and would of been longer if needed) hours with me, my partner and bear showing us different techniques of how to control his behaviour and to get him to loose lead walk. He also got bear to start interacting with other dogs at the park. By the end of the consultation he was a Different dog, bear used to constantly pull on the lead, Lunge at other dogs and some people. It made walks such hard work. Chris has gave us the tools to totally change that. He has totally filled me and my partner up with confidence on how to successfully change bears bad habits. I would totally recommend chris to anyone. I also feel that chris is easy to talk to. Doesn’t judge at all. And is full of knowledge on all aspects where dogs are concerned. Really couldn’t ask for anyone better. Thanks chris
Chris reminded us who the leader of the pack should be and surprisingly it shouldn’t be the dog!!! He gave us plenty of suggestions and advice, and I can honestly say that they have made a great difference. Thanks for everything Chris.
Just a quick up date Lewie and Holly my two German Shepards are no longer jumping up when people knock the door and Lewie is not bouncing all over the place when he sees the leads. All in all my house is now a peaceful and happy house thank you for all your help who would have thought one day would solve what I’d been trying to do in six months so thanks once again your a star
Had a brilliant time on the pack walk today. It was great for Ted to meet so many other dogs in a safe environment, and fun for me to meet so many lovely dog owners. Training session was great too, a real test of concentration. Ted is exhausted and is enjoying a well earned nap. Thank you
We had puppy training with Chris was great for me and harley
Thanks for the 1-2-1 visit yesterday. I can already see a change in Bryn’s behaviour, and my visitor said he was like a different dog
Loved the harlestone firs dog walk and can’t wait to join u again! Fab idea!
Was meant to post back in January! We had Chris over to help us with our Alaskan Shepherd. She had become quite anxious and was on high alert when we had guests over. I am please to say that Winter’s anxiety has dampened a lot: having guests over still poses some issues as we do not have them over often. But overall, a huge success!
All I can say is WOW!!
What a difference a day makes!
Having had Chris round on a 1-2-1 to sort out our pack of 4 terriers, he soon had them behaving themselves.
We have a issue with 2 of the dogs fighting and the tips and pointers that have been given to us
have been remarkable, even though its only been a few hours!!
We can not begin to express our gratitude, what a remarkable guy!!
Dave & Leanne
Thought I’d update you on Mollys progress since you visited a couple of weeks ago.. we are making some real progress minimal barking in house and garden and she is settling in her bed and having some good down time.. a lot calmer and settled than before and we are now walking on her collar with no harness and fingers crossed so far so good.. still a bit of a way to go but we are in a really good place so far and we still have some cuddles so I am a happy bunny too
Chris you were my saviour I had a very agressive dog who you turned into a much more social animal in 3 hours. Thank You.
We used Chris back in January couple weeks after getting our reactive rescue dog, who also needed some training with manners on the lead. Had an excellent session with Chris, who walked around the corner at the park head on to Molly going bonkers!! . We have been using the tips and advice given by Chris that day. We still have a long way to go but we are making some really good progress.
Best PUPPY CLASSES Ever… Now we are on Bronze level 1 with Chris… So much Fun & Knowledge
We rehomed Stan from Many Tears rescue when he was 14 weeks old. We joined puppy classes with Chris a week later. We both enjoyed the friendly session and although Stan was shy the first week he really liked being with the other dogs. Chris is very informative in a friendly and approachable way. He has helped us a lot to understand the way to teach our puppy. We particularly liked how he taught in a group but also individually at times where needed.
Over the years we have been to various dog training classes, with our other dogs and we would very much recommend Chris to others.
Big thank you and a waggy tail from Stan, Suzanne and Mark! Thanks Chris!
We have a 6 month Newfoundland pup “Meg”. Lovely nature, but bad jumping up habit. Thanks to Chris’s advice and guidance we can now return home from a spell out without getting jumped all over. We continue to seek his guidance and think his prices are real value for money.
Absolutely well impressed by the advice and help given fantastic 🙂 very nice man too
Hi Chris. Thank you so much for all your help with Leesha (and Jet). Having thought that we had taken on a dog aggressive dog , your patience and good sense has shown us that she is just highly excitable and has never learnt how to play appropriately. With some brilliant training techniques now in place we have already seen a marked improvement and are looking forward to enjoying many happy years dog walking – hopefully not constantly in the rain
Hi Chris, I’ve just met a couple walking their (absolutely stunning) rescue dog up at Hunsbury .
They asked if my cockapoo Lola had been to any training classes, and it was then I realised that I could confidently recommend your services, because you have a natural affinity with the dogs and it’s not just ticking boxes. So it gives me an opportunity to thank you for the training you did with Lola (and me)!
She is such a happy, lively dog but is now more obedient thanks to the guidance you gave us. – Mac
thank you so much for your help with tilly, what you have said all makes good sense and we have already started with the training 🙂 Iam now looking forward to taking her for a walk !! (from one happy client ) 🙂 x
Hi Chris, Well, what can i say. BRILLIANT!!!!!! We have 2 Black Labs, A 4 year old and a puppy, The puppy was a nightmare, too much energy and a real handful. Chris came to see us one evening to see what he could do and within minutes Bronx (the puppy) really settled down. Chris today came back to spend a few hours with us and the dogs and WOW, the dogs now walk to heel instead of walking us. they now don’t climb on the furniture unless they are called up and wait at the bottom of the stairs instead of bolting up after us. Its almost a miracle. He put together a structured dog walk so we can go out and fulfil the dogs both physically and mentally. Im rambling a bit but you get the idea. Definately worth the time, money and i wish i’d called him months ago. Thanks again Chris. Regards Dave and April
Since your one on one training session the other evening, I have seen more improvement in all three of our dog than I ever thought possible. I have seen all three of my dogs relax around strangers and their dogs. Walking the dogs is now enjoyable. Thanks again.
Amazing results in the dog from lesson one and amazing amount learnt by owner! Especially grateful to Chris for involving my young daughter in the training session the advice given was easy to follow and easy to continue at home my staffy is calmer and listening and no longer jumping up like a crazy dog
Highly recommend Chris
Thank you Chris for the brilliant advice you gave me to help me with my Labrador, Bailey. I’m confident Bailey and I will have the jumping up under control in no time.
Thank you for getting back to me so quickly too. Lou & Bailey
I cannot thank you enough for the help given in the one to one with us and Harvey. I wouldn’t have believed we could have such fast results but he and I are much happier and our relationship is much calmer. we are enjoying being all together and are recommending you to everyone!
Bruno has been making brilliant progress since our one to one session. The obedience skills you taught us all have turned our lives around to be honest! He has settled in really well and the little hints and tips about our behavior towards him have been great. We look forward to the next group walk! Thanks again
Chris Rose, you are Amazing. My husband and I were seeing some behaviours developing in our dog Guss in the few weeks we have had him that we did not know how to change. We contacted Chris for his guidance and expertise and he visited yesterday. Within minutes of arriving he knew that our dog’s behaviours were down to anxieties, and us unwittingly letting the our dog control us! Chris was with us for over 4 hours demonstrating the techniques needed. We knew exactly where we were going wrong and how to achieve the changes and after Chris left we started straight away. By yesterday evening we knew that the techniques were working, they are simple and very effective and we will never underestimate the use of a ‘Lead’, today we have incredible changes in our dog, and he knows that we now have control. Thank you so much Chris, Incredible.
We had a lovely, fun and productive day with Chris Rose yesterday. Learned a lot from him that would definitely make my PLIO (15wk old Husky x German Shepherd) be the best she can be. We will carry on doing what you taught us. Again, Thank you so much, Chris Rose.
Highly recommend Chris Rose
After a pretty much all day session with my border collie Jasper, I have learnt some fantastic techniques from Chris, his friendly, informative approach is excellent. He helped me understand Jaspers body language and also to recognise when he is displaying anxious behaviour, what I’ve done wrong and left me with techniques to help Jasper, within 24 hrs I have already started to notice a calmer dog, long way to go but highly recommend Chris!
Chris has spent the day with myself and Jackson my 9 month old puppy who was displaying almost every behaviour going. Jackson was the top dog in my home and that was down to me allowing him to be in control. Jackson would bark constantly at everything, get over excited and nip at visitors and myself, he would steal any object lying around, dig holes in my garden the list was endless. Jackson is now already alot calmer and and I feel I am in control. This is down to Chris and how he understands dogs so well. His techniques are instant and my disobedient puppy was at last following instructions. I know it is now down to me and working hard to be consistent and making sure that everyone that comes into contact with Jackson sticks to our new rules, which from Chris’ advice I am already typing up to display. Thank you so much Chris
I took on a little rescue staffy, who had a big separation issue and was very unsure around other dogs. Thanks to Chris and all his hard work my little girl now happily interacts with all other dogs and will sleep peacefully in her bed when left home alone:D. I would certainly recommend Chris to anyone with dog behavior issues.
Hi Chris, you saw me and Tess the puppy collie on Monday. Just to let you know things are going really well, we made all the changes you suggested and she is responding really well. My husband couldn’t believe it was the same dog when he got home! I hope to join your 7-8 class this Friday. Regards Nicola
Well I cannot thank Chris enough for the help he has given me and Albie my 10 month old staffy. Since the first phonecall he filled me with confidence that he could help and has worked in such a non judgemental way towards us both. He knew Albie was highly anxious and gave me the tools and strategies to help me be a better owner and Albie to come out of himself to be the playful staffy he is. I can now read his body language and can judge situations on if he feels uncomfortable and he has worked with as many members of my family (other dogs included) to ensure we are all working together. I am full to the brim with confidence and cannot wait to update Chris with how well me and Albie are doing socialising him with new dogs and having him be the loving family dog I knew he could be! THANKYOU!
Wanted to say a big thank you. We have just had four 1-1 sessions with our 11 month old German Wirehaired Pointer -Floyd.
We have really taken onboard all the advice given. We cannot express how much Floyd has changed.
Your knowledge and style of delivery is spot on.
We Now have a calmer and happier dog.
We are really motivated to keep up twice daily training.
Please thank Chris again- Floyd is so much calmer- we are loving walking him now – Ali and Paul
Chris was absolutely amazing, we have a dog who suffers anxiety issues. Chris helped us understand the causes and triggers and trained us to overcome these issues. Within a week we noticed big improvements and are continuing to follow Chris’ advice. Highly recommend! Can’t thank Chris enough.
Thanks for helping us with echo, can’t believe the massive improvement in her. Returns from walk leave me with no aching arms and with the dog thanks to the recall training ! it’s fun to take her for a walk now
