Recently completed the puppy course at four paws, initially after having a 121 home training session. Would recommend 100% the class was friendly, and we learnt a lot more than we initially thought we would. The exercises were easy to follow, and Kathryn was always on hand for further advice if we needed it, and we did.!..Thanks so much…

Kathryn has done a one to one session in my home with me and my one year old. What an astonishing lady. So generous with her time and knowledge and patience. I can not recommend highly enough tho, very talented lady. Thank you SO much Kathryn.

Kathryn is amazing. With our first jack russell, Jax, we had a home visit, followed by both the puppy and junior classes and he is now an absolute diamond. We have now also recently introduced a new puppy to the family, our now 10 week old Sookie, another jack russell terrier.
Kathryn has today attended a home visit for us and we are instantly seeing results again with her advice. Thank you Kathryn, your love for dogs clearly shows and you continually help us to provide the best life for our furbabies.

Got so much from the puppy foundation course! Can’t recommend it enough to new puppy owners! Kathryn is a great instructor and makes you feel at ease and confident even if your pup is not performing at that particular moment. Our boy has come on so much in the 6 weeks! Plus, there’s lots of valuable information as well as Kathryn’s experiences which she shares. We will definitely be enrolling on the junior course! Thank you, Kathryn!

Kathryn was highly recommended and she certainly fulfilled our expectations. Both her skills relating to training and her knowledge of dog behaviour was first class.Excellent service, excellent advice on. a 1-1 basis DOUGALL our puppy loved it. We will not hesitate to use Kathryn’s service again. Thank you KathrynIan & Lynne (Clayton le Woods.)
I have known Kathryn for many years and she is an asset to our Rescue. Her gentle expertise and knowledge of dog behaviour has helped many a traumatised Golden to trust again.She will also help and advise new owners who may have a few teething problems in the first few weeks with a new dog.
This is invaluable to us, the new owners and the Goldens.I would recommend her to anyone who has a training problem whether it be small or large, as I know she will work through it with you.

Just a quick note to say Bella our rescue golden retriever, is responding well to the training techniques you gave me. You were right about not training on the ‘off day’ for the dog, no other ‘experts’ have mentioned this…I get lots of ‘advice’ when out walking, but what you said has worked in our favour and Bella has responded well.
Thank you, your advice has been invaluable.
Take care. Diane & Bella

My cockapoo Harry had a one to one with Kathryn and she was brilliant what a difference in just one session .Thank you Kathryn .

Just completed the puppy foundation course with our little Darcy. We initially took her for “socialisation” thinking we wouldn’t learn much however we were proven wrong. As well as learning the standard sit, lie, stay and come commands, we also learnt commands we didn’t think about such as “watch me”, drop it and leave it. These have been especially useful. We also learnt the importance of exercise and how we can keep our puppies safe. We couldn’t recommend this course anymore and Kathryn is absolutely brilliant and always available for any 1 on 1 advice.

We’ve thoroughly enjoyed coming to Puppy classes with our boys Gideon and Ezra. Both dogs have made really noticeable progress and benefited greatly from Kathryn’s positive teaching methods. We realise this is the start of a lifelong journey for all of us, but what a great start we’ve had. We are so proud of our lovely boys and Four Paws has played a big part in this. Thank you very much..

Really enjoying training with FOUR PAWS. Lovely, relaxed and very informative. My little Jack Russell is becoming much more attentive and responsive, a joy. Highly recommend to all dog owners.Debbie & Max. (Bretherton.)
We met Kathryn today for a 121 session after a recommendation and wow! She took the time to explain things to us and answered any questions we had. Bella learnt so much and so did we! Would highly recommend Kathryn to anyone!Stacey & Bella. (Penwortham)
Just graduated from Puppy training with Teddy and Jasper aka double trouble! Learnt so much and whilst both pups have developed greatly, us humans learnt so much and are far more confident owners. Would absolutely recommend Kathryn. Her style is patient, inclusive and based on love for dogs.Janet, Teddy & Jasper. (Euxton.)
Really enjoyed our Puppy course with our Labrador Henry, he has settled a lot more since going to class and the socialisation was structured and we feel this helped us a lot. Thanks for all your help.Alan, Sarah. & Henry. (Leyland,.)
The puppy course has been extremely helpful, informative and reassuring for us as new puppy owners. We are so glad to have learnt these really important and useful commands, thank you very much Kathryn.

Hi Kathryn,Just to let you know how Ralphy is doing after your home visit he is beginning to be a lot more focused and a lot calmer when we are out and about. We didn’t think it was possible.!!!
Thanks for all your help.

Thanks Kathryn for our home training the other day, and to help us with our rescue spaniel Daisy. She wasn’t very confident, and we were her third home so we wanted to make sure, she stayed with us now,she needed some socialising, and glad to say what you told us has worked. She seems to be gaining confidence daily now so thank for all your help.Jim Sarah. & Daisy (Leyland)..
Just a quick email to let you know how Dexter is doing, he is much better on the lead now, and the other training you taught has helped us enormously, especially getting his attention when out.!!
Thanks once again..Brian, Jan, Holly & Dexter. (Tarleton.)
Update for you Kathryn….. Bertie is beginning to be a lot better on the lead now, its not been easy at times but we have persevered and now got him walking nicely, 🙂 walks are so much easier, we have the odd blip, but only now and again…just come back from a few days in the Lakes and the walks were so much more enjoyable..
Thanks once again…Phil Jenny & Bertie (Lab.) (Leyland)
Kathryn came to our home to help us train our Labrador Spencer, he jumped up and wouldn’t listen to us. Kathryn showed us how to train Spencer, and we have kept up with the training and cant believe the difference in him. He now listens to us, and we are now enjoying him, at times it has been hard but Kathryn was always there to assure us and help us along our training path. We love him to bits and cant thank you enough Kathryn. Thanks once again and big kiss from Spencer.
Peter, Janet & Spencer. (Leyland)
So happy with Trevor’s (my pup) progress in such a short time. You can really tell the trainer loves dogs…. Thank you!!!!
Lisa & Trevor (Adlington.)
Cant recommend the home training enough, we were unable to attend classes due to our work commitments, so Kathryn came to see us to help us train our young cocker spaniel, we thought we had left the training too late as he was already 9 months old, but after 2 sessions at home he has really come on.
Thanks for all your help Kathryn, we are keeping up with the training you showed us, and the training hand outs have been invaluable.Dave, Sue, & Charlie. (Leyland).
Kathryn helped me with my older lab Charlie,pulling on the lead and recall,she was brilliant and her advice helped me enormously,even my neighbours cud see a big difference in Charlie after the two visits to my home,thank you Kathryn x
Veronica & Charlie.
Definitely 5* training, atmosphere very friendly and wasn’t pushed into anything our Merlin didn’t want to do. His confidence grew every week, and he is coming along now in leaps and bounds…Thanks Kathryn, big kiss from Merlin, ( I know how much he loved you.!! )Janet & Merlin. (Euxton)
Hello. ! Just to let you know Arnie is doing really well with his training. He is responding to ‘watch me’, ‘stay’ and we have him walking well on his lead. Thank you for all your help. We may be needing you again soon as we are looking to get another dogBarbara, Anne, & Arnie. (Bamber Bridge.)
Excellent puppy training course. Learnt so much every week. So informative and Kathryn makes you feel at ease and confident. I can’t recommend this course enough. Thank you KathrynDeborah,Barry & Daisy.
After a fantastic afternoon with Kathryn, I just wanted to say to everyone “Don’t overlook the 1-2-1 home visits”! I couldn’t even begin to think how many hours of training time Kathryn has covered in the home visit. When she started with ‘Watch Me’ with puppy-Floyd, one of my existing Bichons, Bertie, just joined in from fascination. It’s amazing what Kathryn can spot and advise on when you are in you own home. **THANK YOU** for today, Kathryn – lots of practice coming up now!Ani & Floyd (Chorley.)
My name is Holly I’m a 14 month old Cavapoo. My daddy took me to four paws dog training classes. I like going there my teacher is called Kathryn Roughley she is very nice, she has taught me how to sit/stay,go down, wait. walk to heel and lots more. She never gets angry or shouts at me but gives me lots of praise and treats. She also gives my daddy lots of tips and information on how to look after me what food I should eat, checking my ears, coat, claws and lots more. I would recommend four paws dog training.Ron & Holly (Euxton)
I have known Kathryn for a number of years, through her work with Rescue, as she has rehomed hundreds of dogs into their new home. She uses kind training methods, and has helped many owners and dogs, she is always there to help anyone with a training problem. I have no hesitation in recommending Kathryn.Carolyne Poulton (Co-ordinator) Labrador Retriever Rescue Scotland.
