We love hearing how our dogs are progressing.  Below are just a few of the many testimonials we receive about how we have helped them.

Nigel and Monty (off lead behaviour)

Monty was a 12 week old Bernese Mountain Dog puppy when I met Paws in the Pink and Kiri & I learnt how to have some control of our lovable, boisterous and enthusiastic puppy. Unfortunately, a few months after our puppy training had finished, things started to go downhill a bit.  Monty was enjoying himself … Read more

Caroline and Mimi (puppy training and behaviour)

I have come to Kiri to help me train my Cockapoo puppy. Even though I have had many dogs I had forgotten the basics.Kiri’s approach is wonderful, no shouting and very modern (as things have changed enormously!) I feel more confident and have learned a tremendous amount which has helped me to enjoy Mimi (puppy). … Read more


Frankie – (puppy training & behaviour advice)

Paws in the Pink (Kiri) has shown us the way to train our Cockapoo in a quiet and gentle manner to achieve great results. Kiri has an affinity with dogs and they with her.


Sophie & Harvey (behaviour)

I would happily recommend Kiri to anybody needing any help, support or advice with their dog- her friendly, engaging character is great and she is very realistic in the training and outcomes that she sets for the owner and the dog.


Mikhaila & Jaxon- (training to qualify to be an assistant dog)

Jaxon and I started our journey with Kiri in September 2017. We enrolled on her puppy class, it was amazing, her training methods are brilliant, insightful and covered so much.


Rosie -Working Cocker Spaniel (re-call, re-engagement & connection)

I initially took my new puppy, Rosie, (Working Cocker Spaniel / Labrador cross to a Puppy Class run by Kiri. This got us off to a flying start; I really loved Kiri’s reward based training and her obvious love for what she does and her total compassion and commitment to the puppies / dogs in her care.


Linda, Robin & Wellington (behaviour and training)

We were desperate to find help for our golden retriever puppy Wellington who at 12 weeks was jumping, biting and getting over excited very quickly.


Shanie Grant & Hugo (dog to dog reactivity, building confidence & training skills)

Kiri has been absolutely incredible with Hugo, our 3 year old Shih-tzu terrier mix and in just a few short weeks she has helped him grow into a confident and happy dog again.

Darcey & Maggie (learning to re-connect, new fun skills, agility, gun dog seeking, find it & much more)

I came to Kiri with a young rescue dog with a few issues and a newly arrived puppy. The changes that she has helped bring about have been remarkable. Throughout the process, she has been cheerful and patient.
