She has a relaxed, approachable and friendly manner with people, will remaining professional at all times and all clients engaged well with her.
My dogs thoroughly enjoyed their training with Joanne.
We were recommended to Jo by Alberto, Senior Partner at Vets for Pets in Romford,due to Bailey (Chocolate Labrador) developing an anxiety to going on his walks, which he used to love and wait for.
When we first met Jo she was very friendly and introduced herself to Bailey straight away who really took to her. Jo sat with us and went through all of our concerns and went into the detail of Bailey’s background and current problems, which she then later sent to us as a report.
Jo then came out for a walk with us to watch Bailey and his reactions and could tell the same as us that he was very anxious but showed us some very good techniques we could use to try and distract him from his fears and we were able to get him to walk for a short distance. Jo also left us with a disc with noises on which Bailey is scared of to help to try and get him to hear these as part of everyday life.
After Jo’s initial visit she sent us a behavioural plan to follow with Bailey and arranged two further visits where again she was very helpful and could see the difference herself and suggested further ways we could help Bailey.
Since Jo’s last visit we have been working with Bailey to try and help him conquer his fears and even though he is not completely there yet we have noticed a big difference when using Jo’s techniques.
Overall Jo was very good at what she does and very friendly answering any questions we had. We would definitely recommend Jo and Paw-Position to other dog owners.
In her first visit Jo took plenty of time to ask us all the background information about Rufus; his daily routine, general behaviour, how he responds when he’s nervous and so on. She also made her own observations both in the house and out walking. In this first visit Jo made some really useful observations and picked up things that we had previously not even connected. She gave us some techniques to try which were really easy for us to adopt and Rufus began to respond very well to them. She then provided us with a detailed behaviour plan that would enable us to help Rufus begin to respond differently to the things that made him nervous.
In her second visit a week later we were very happy and relieved as she told us she could see a really big improvement in Rufus in just that short amount of time. We are still in the process of using these new techniques and Rufus is learning very well and making really good progress.
Jo has given us a much better understanding of why Rufus is responding as he is, and the advice and suggestions she has given us is producing really good results.
