Dog Training

We found Tail Tapping Antics after trying another training class, in which our puppy Tia spent the whole session hiding under the bench and shaking! This is a far cry from her reaction to Angela’s dog training classes – she can’t wait to get there and is visibly excited when she realises where we are going! Tia has come on in leaps and bounds since we started training with Angela. She was a very excitable puppy, verging on uncontrollable at times and the training sessions gave us a positive way to channel her energy. We started with the introductory course and now attend the drop-in sessions on a weekly basis. When we got our second puppy Sapphire, we booked her on the introductory course straight away with a view to starting when she was fully vaccinated. I also started to use Angela’s techniques with her as soon as we got her home and she soon became a model puppy! Angela uses only positive techniques, which help to create a happy, well behaved dog. I would recommend her to anyone. Victoria Atherton, Chorley.

Angela is an excellent trainer. She has a passion for dog training. We have done a basic dog obedience course with her and now go to her drop in sessions as often as we can. My young dog (Alfie) is a good all round dog now. Angela knows her subjects, advocates good practice through positive reinforcement. She will break things down to help you get the best results from what ever it is you are trying to do with your dog. I am glad we found Angela and we are very happy with her services. Craig Hobin, Chorley.

I spoke to Angela with regards to a one on one consultation with my dog, who is dog agressive. Angela met me in my local park, spent an hour walking around with me and my dog assessing us both in different situations, she even brought treats for my dog! She then said we would fit into her training classes, and didn’t even charge me for the one on one consultation!

Classes were excellent, everyone was very friendly, each dogs personality was taken into consideration, and dogs with problems were helped. Angela kept in touch with me via e-mail and phone calls, and let me know when she had a new service available. Excellent, can’t wait for your next training class! Heather Parkinson, Leyland.

We have known Angela in a professional capacity since July 2009.  Angela has worked with ourselves to rehabilitate our Rescue dog.  We began with one to one sessions. Angela visited our home, met our dog, took notes, assessed the dog and discussed our requirements with us.  Angela offered us advice on caring for and training our dog.  We then attended training session with a small group and have recently enrolled on a six week course, with a larger group of people and dogs, doing some basic training.  Our dog is coping very well and improving all the time.

We have had other trainers work with us and the dog and although they offered some sound advice we didn’t manage to achieve the improvements that we have been able to achieve with Angela.  We also found that Angela’s rates were very reasonable in comarison with other trainers, in some cases Angela charges 80% less.  This is because Angela is dedicated to helping people help their canine companions.

Angela always uses positive reinforcements in her training methods and works in a caring and responsible manner.  Angela is a great motivator and is never judgemental and we also have a lot of fun along the way.  I have already recommended Angela to friends who are struggling with their dogs and will continue to recommend her.

At all times we have found Angela very friendly, professional and approachable. Mary Gleeson and Dave Lancaster, Leyland.

Dog Grooming

Hi Angela. Just a quickie to say, Thank you for grooming Moonie! She looks absolutley gorgeous. You’ve done a really great job. I’m so pleased. Here markings and colour have really come out but without her looking skinned. I like the way you’ve shaped her ears and left her tuftie top too. Somebody commented on her coat while we were out walking today. So thank you so much. I hope she was good for you.  Speak soon. Take care. Caroline Mostyn, Leyland.

As a previous owner of a Pet Shop/Grooming Salon I know a little about what Angela’s about. I have used her sevices more than once and intend to use them on a regular basis. She comes prepared, she is always pleasent and efficient it is a pleasure to see her. My two dogs have never looked better. She has a deceptively efficient way to get my two to do exactly what she wantsFrank Griffiths, Chorley.

I have used Tail Tapping Antics on more than one occasion for the Grooming and Training of my Yorkshire Terrier. I have found Angela to be very polite, friendly, and extremely thorough in her work.  I would and have recommended her to all my dog loving friends! I have taken Alfie to many other groomers and not been as satisfied, Angela is excellent value for money and extremely good at her job! Joanne Smith, Chorley.

Dog Walking/Pet Sitting

I contacted Angela in Summer 2009 to provide a dog sitting service for our dog, Benny.  Benny is a Heinz 57 with lots of staffy terrier in him.  Benny came from a rescue shelter over 7 years ago.  he is dearly loved and comes with lots of little traits, e.g. sitting and shaking if he can hear the wind rushing through the trees.  He also requires daily medication for an allergic condition.  I felt apprehensive about leaving him with a stranger.  I must say that Angela is not a stranger to Benny for long.  He even sits on the doormat at the same time each day waiting patiently, hoping that Angela might turn up.  Angela has done a brilliant job with him and I have no hesitations in recommending Tail Tapping Antics services to any caring dog owner.  I will certainly be using your services again.  Thank you for a really professional job well done. Linda Doherty, Heskin.

We are very grateful for the care and attention that you gave to our dogs Lucy and Cleo whilst we were on vacation.  They were very happy and seemed very content when we came home.  In fact the bonus to us is that they now sleep down in their baskets together.  I have been trying to do this since we adopted them last year.  Once again thank you for your care and for a very professional service that you gave, being able to text you was definately a bonus to me.  We will be recommending you to all our friends and colleagues and of course relatives, if they need their dogs or cats looking after. Drene & David Lee, Chorley.
