In my opinion, Alex is the best and most experienced dog trainer you could hire in Essex right now. Both our dogs are easier to manage since training and boarding with him. His advice and guidance has been excellent. Thank you Alex and your lovely team!

We had our first session with Alex last week and were honestly speechless by the progress made in just two hours. We rehomed a 16 month old Chow Shepherd three weeks ago, and he's never been trained to walk on a lead, so he was pulling us down the street like there was no tomorrow. I was specifically looking for a trainer who uses kind training techniques and have experience with big dogs, and that's how I came across Essex Dog Trainer. After just one session with Alex, our dog now walks calmer and much nicer before. And you can tell he's less stressed and enjoying the walks much more. He still pulls a little bit, of course, but nowhere near as intense as before, and Alex taught us how to handle the pulling in a constructive way. He also gave us advice on which elements of training we should focus on in order to achieve results faster, and tips for activities that can help calm our pup down. Highly recommend!🐶

We have been working with Alex for the past few months and I am super impressed with my dog’s progress. Alex has shown us how to better spend our time together, learn in a more structured way, progress patiently for faster gains and most importantly… have fun! My pup is enjoying obedience, he is happy to work, his drive has increased significantly and our relationship is on another level. We have also used the boarding school services for when we have been away and our pup came back even better trained. Alex’s team have been so friendly, really approachable and I can see how our dog loves spending time with them. After seeing various trainers around the country, we can say Alex and his team are by far the best dog trainers in the UK for us.

I’ve been working with Alex for just under a year with my young female Rottweiler and I am over the moon with everything we have achieved so far. He hasn’t only helped my dog but he has helped me improve as an owner. His way of teaching is simplified and easy to follow. A really friendly team, with years of experience behind them with all types of dogs. When you find a great trainer that you can really connect with, it makes all the difference. I look forward to seeing what else we can achieve over the years working with Alex and his team!

I have been to a few different trainers over the years to learn and improve and Alex was brilliant. He listened to me, assessed my dog and then we worked. He really was looked at us - which a lot of people simply don't have the skillset to do and follow set methods. His knowledge and skills really shine through and he spends time with you. I would recommend Alex and his team as they are different to other trainers in their experience, knowledge and mindset. I would also say we spent years learning different things with different trainers and we had improvement after one session with Alex. He corrected the little things that hadn't been noticed or commented on before. If you want a trainer who really knows what they are doing and will look at you as individuals then this is the place to go.

Alex is very knowledgable and patient. He listened to what I wanted to get from the session and showed me how to train my dog properly. Highly recommended.

After only my second visit to Alex I’ve learnt an incredible amount. His knowledge is truly outstanding and he builds such a bond with his clients dogs which is amazing. Will 100% be visiting again, myself and my 14 month old GSD are very thankful for his help and continued support.

Alex has gone above and beyond to help me. He is very knowledgeable and I’ve seen huge results in single sessions where he has problem solved issues I’ve had for months within minutes. I can’t thank Alex enough and I look forward to continuing to working with him.

Alex came highly recommended to me after feeling disillusioned with progress at a different training school with my bully pup Otis. Alex' expertise and experience is invaluable, he is a master of his craft. Sessions are so relaxed, with Alex teaching and guiding us both, my confidence with handling grows with each session which I hope is reflecting in the progress Otis is making. We are both absolutely loving the journey and cannot thank Alex enough.

Could not recommend Alex highly enough! 1st started my dog training journey with him a few years ago with my Doberman juke who was very dog reactive, anxious, no recall and huge lead puller. After just 2 sessions a year apart and all the homework inbetween I could walk juke off lead anywhere in public with a perfect recall and he would happily go on pack walks with other dogs ignoring them. Sadly he died young and since owning my new puppy Bruno I see Alex most weeks and at 2 years old he’s already the perfect dog. We’re training for his BH test and work on protection and I could not be happier. The best thing about training with Alex for me is that he teaches me the owner so I can practice it all with my dog and build an exceptional bond. Jack and keeley are also both excellent dog trainers and I often recommend all 3 to anyone who stops and asks how I got Bruno so well behaved.

Will YOU be my next AMAZING review?
