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.
The system 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. I believe that this is a huge benefit of Pro Dog training - other 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.

"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
