Here is what some of our previous clients have to say

What an amazing 4 weeks, we have all had with Claire. Not only has she been amazing with Wilbur, but also amazing with us as a family. We have had lots of fun, whilst training Wilbs and ourselves. Claire has had so much patience with us all whilst we have learnt so much. I would highly recommend anyone to Claire. Thanks Claire we will all miss you x


Having known Claire in a previous life, I always knew her passion was to work with Dogs. So Daisy our puppy Shidoodle and my Daughter Alexandra who is 8 years old were to be her students. Straight away the new bond grew and learning began, within only one lesson we knew this was going to be a great experience For both my daughter and Daisy. They are so excited to go to the lessons and they have both learned so much and always do their homework too. Our follow on sessions are already booked in the diary and we start those soon. I can not recommend the puppy classes enough all dogs should go to these. Claire’s professional and yet relaxed style really hits the mark. Book now. Daisy also knows Claire as the lady with very nice treats!!


We would definitely recommend Puppy Fun and Games at Wagtails. Claire’s love of dogs and passion for training shines through, making the classes fun and relaxed for the puppies and the owners. Our puppy gets excited as soon as we arrive and we are starting to see progress where we once thought it would be impossible.


I highly recommend Claire and Puppy Fun and games at Wagtails. Mali (my Romanian Rescue) and I have been regular visitors to Wagtails for a while now. When we first started visiting Mali wasn’t interested in me at all and had very little confidence with anything. With Claire’s help and never ending encouragement Claire has not just helped Mali but given my confidence such a boost that Mali and I can face anything now. The power of games is real and if you want to build the most fantastic relationship with your dog, Claire is just the person to help. The facilities are fantastic and the 1 to 1 sessions really give you the opportunity to concentrate on yours and your dog’s struggles.

About me

My name is Claire and I have been passionate about dogs all of my life and always had a keen interest in dog training. However, my interest deepened when I got a puppy who was different from all the other dogs I had known. This dog was anxious and worried about everything and the whole world was a scary place, which often meant she acted in a negative and defensive manner. I have attended many different courses and come across a variety of different training methods in my journey to find a way to help her, some better than others.

I then came across AbsoluteDogs and found a way to train that was kind, fun and made complete sense to me. Determined to do the very best for all of my dogs I worked hard to become a Certified ProDog Trainer in 2019 and a ProDog Geek in 2021, I have loved every minute of sharing my knowledge with others ever since. Training through concepts and games is fun and grows the relationship and bond you have with your dog.
