Lucy has been a godsend for our dogs, someone with insight, practical experience and tips that work for our rescue terrier and lurcher. She’s incredibly talented at reading dog body language, up to date in terms of advice around behaviour and treatment, and provides a huge amount of information and support. We’ve had problems due to poor socialising and a previous dog trainer who didn’t understand sighthounds, and she’s really helped us and our dogs have a far better life together. I only wish we’d met her many years ago!
