My puppy and I took a 1-1 4 weeks class with Luke and it has been great ! My puppy learnt a lot and has made good progress. Luke is passionate, patient and very responsive. I definitely recommend !

Very friendly, positive and encouraging. They point out things you never noticed and they make it really interesting to know things about your dog you never realised and it all helps so much. Thank you.

We attended the perfect pooch impulse control workshop. It was really helpful and full of useful training suggestions. Our dog is 2 so no longer a puppy and has been to training sessions before but it’s always good to keep practicing and improving. We learnt a lot of useful tips and covered things we hadn’t done before. Luke is a fantastic, calm trainer and explains things very clearly. His assistants were all really good too. The best bit was after only the first session our dog had stopped jumping at people coming into the house! An amazing result.

Luke had been recommended to us by a few people so we went ahead and booked a 1-2-1 training session and he did not disappoint. We have a 17 month old Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy called Tommy and we asked Luke for some guidance around recall, jumping up and pulling on the lead. The session was great and focused around ‘play’ – Tommy was so much more engaged than he ever is on a standard walk where he usually spends a lot of his time looking around for something more interesting to do or something to chase! Following this session we are practicing what we have learnt daily - Tommy is already learning to sit as opposed to jumping up. We are also all really enjoying the new focus on ‘play’ on his walks. Following this session we have booked a course of the teenage dog classes as we are keen to get some experience of working with Tommy in a controlled environment where other dogs are present. Luke was great, very calm and patient and clearly very experienced. We are looking forward to attending the classes and will no doubt book some more 1-2-1 sessions in the future. Thanks for your help Luke!

We attended the outdoor puppy classes. Luke went above and beyond to ensure that everyone's puppy got attention and each owners' questions were answered during each session. Each week clearly presented a few ideas for practicing and embodying good clear leadership techniques with your young dog - the approach was led by positive reinforcement and kindness. Luke teaches you how to be the kind of leader your dog wants to pay attention to and please. Over the course of the six week session, we were definitely on the road to increasing slowly increase our puppies' impulse control and responsive attention to their humans. The overall aim is to help us create better relationships with our puppies and better canine citizens of London.

Wow! Luke is amazing. He understands all dogs somehow - so much experience. Marnie is a rescue street dog (5/6months) then in kennels for 2 months. We have worked closely in 1-2-1 sessions over the last few months and he has given me so much confidence (massively) and practical training adapted each time to suite Marnie. He finds the dogs passion and works with it. I can’t list it all, but for a start I will try and list some: recall, nervous dogs, lead walking, reduce barking, make sure dog feels safe (so simple), name recognition (similar to recall), using a whistle, special words, and one of my favourites play play play. Thank you Luke

I've used LDS twice now (adolescent classes and one to one training) and my experience was completely positive. Luke is a great communicator and advocate for dogs' needs. I really like the compassionate and understanding-led style of training used by the school. Luke tailors the training to the dog and your environment and provided us with specific - and fun - strategies to take away. Having been at the end of my tether with a reactivity-prone, anxious young dog, I now have have so much more confidence moving forwards. Cannot recommend highly enough for those needing some extra help to get the most out of your relationship with your dog.

    Knowledgeable & friendly

    “Luke is an excellent dog trainer.

    He explained the reasons why my dog might behave the way he does, and demonstrated clearly how to reward the behaviour I wanted.

    I found Luke to be knowledgeable and friendly, and a fount of knowledge.

    I’ve been practicing what he taught us, and it is paying off. Monty is starting to settle when we’re in a cafe instead of needing constant attention.”
