Hi there, my name is Sue and I have been training my own dogs since I was a teenager and competing in agility for nearly 30 years. I have owned Labradors, a Springer Spaniel, Border Collie, Collie-crosses and a Sheltie; all dogs with very different personalities. I am an Absolute Dogs certified Pro Dog Trainer, and am a member of the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers.
The Absolute Dogs system of games-based concept training has transformed my reactive Border Collie. Having a dog with more demanding behaviour issues means that I fully appreciate the challenges which some owners may be facing, and I would love to help you achieve similar results with your dog.
This approach addresses day-to-day training and importantly it also takes a complete view of the dog's routine or environment as these can be very influential on their behaviour. Other apparently 'quick-fix' methods may give a result initially, but will not provide the long term benefits which will be gained from resolving the root cause and the dog's emotions in a particular situation.
Absolute Dogs provide their Pro Dog Trainers with weekly updates on training knowledge and skills, which means that I am always able to apply the latest methods to helping you and your dog.

"Sue has been a huge help to me and Mabel and I am so pleased I booked the 6-week Junior Paws puppy course. Mabel and I have learnt so much and I truly believe this has helped us bond with one another. Sue's helpful tips and advice helped me get through the very early stages of puppyhood, and I use all her advice daily! Thank you Sue!" Julie
"Sue is a patient calm trainer who makes training fun for you and your dog with a different approach. I would definitely recommend her training." Anna S.
"Sue is a calm and confident trainer. Any issue or problem I have with my dog, Sue is able to offer a solution in the form of positive, fun games and techniques. Sue offers flexible arrangements for our 1-2-1 sessions in locations that are convenient and local. Sue makes me feel relaxed in our sessions and never puts me under pressure. My dog and I really enjoy meeting up with Sue!!" Lisa C.
"This is Sophie our 18-month-old Chocolate Labrador. We contacted Sue at All Games Dog Training because of the problems we were having. Sophie was being destructive and unresponsive to us. We had tried other trainers, but we found it very repetitive. When we contacted Sue for help, we explained what problems we were having.On our first meeting at our house Sue showed us some simple games to keep Sophie and us focused. As we continued the games each day we saw a steady improvement. After each visit we found that the training and interaction between Sophie and ourselves became more fun. The destruction of furniture has stopped. The distraction techniques Sue has shown us are also working during walks. Sophie's interaction with other dogs has also improved, she is calmer when walking on the lead, she pulls a lot less. Sue thank you for giving us our happy home back." Richard & Sarah Moore
"This is Monty, he is a 10-month old border collie and we have done both of Sue's courses, Junior Paws and Graduate Paws. Sue has shown lots of patience and dedication to training both Monty, and us, and we have made huge progress since we started. Training a puppy using his daily food allowance and games, is a great way to get the puppy engaged. Sue is exceptionally good with dogs and provides a calm and confident training approach, with additional techniques when the training needs to move on to the next stage. We have trained during lockdown mainly, so Sue has been extremely flexible with video calls and training videos to ensure we are doing the right things and making progress. We are so grateful for her guidance in training our boisterous puppy!" Michelle
"We had a fantastic time training with Sue over a period of 4 months. She created a bespoke training schedule with a variety of different games and exercises each week which meant that each session was lot of fun for both us and our puppy Henry.
As a teacher Sue was very supportive and gave clear feedback each week to help us progress and she made sure that all of the training was very positive and centred around playing games.
We can’t thank Sue enough for her help in making Henry such a well behaved puppy and we often get compliments on his strong recall and ability to walk to heel." Daniel & Jonathan
