Heather

Heather - New Zealand

“The slip lead has made all the difference to my controlling Arki on the short lead and I am delighted with it. Just so much better than dragging on a collar a Mark says in his book. His book is fantastic and I am living and breathing it at the moment!”

Margaret

Margaret - Auckland

“Just wanted to tell you how very pleased I am with the training bag. I use it all the time! Love it being flat against the body when walking and so easy to get treats out quickly.”

Susie

“I started at module 1 and I’m about half way through watching module 4. If I wasn’t writing this email I would be watching some more – I’m addicted! I’m finding the video’s really interesting and valuable and I’m looking forward to getting into the training. ”

Sharon

Sharon - NZ

“Just wanted to let you know what a difference your Dog Zen programme has made to our dog Macy (and us!). We’ve been using clicker and contrast training from your videos and today we had success for the first time by turning her round and asking the other dog owners to do a “nose to tail” greet. So simple, but so effective!!”

Marie

Maree (& Ella) - Hot Water Beach, Coromandel

“Just love your videos (& can’t wait to receive your book). I look forward to watching a few videos each day and am learning so much. Thanks for putting together & sharing such brilliant techniques! .”

“I think everyone should be doing this course before owning a dog! So informative into the workings of a dog’s mind. Critical to dog ownership.”

Pip

Pip - New Plymouth

“I have been watching all the Dog Zen foundation videos and learning a huge amount. We started work on the clicker on the weekend and he is making progress already on the lead, which is wonderful. I wish I had been onto this programme when he was a pup! Watching the dog language and foundation videos are really helpful to firstly know how a dogs mind works. Great and really important starting ground!”

Kerri

“Thank you so much for your expertise and help with training my girl. Your format is extremely easy to follow, it all makes sense and it’s been a huge help to me. She’s definitely come such a long way on a short time. “

Gloria

Gloria - Breeder, Auckland

“I recently purchased Puppy Zen book and thoroughly enjoyed the read and have some new things to try now.”

Sonia

Sonia - Breeder Cider Field Labradoodles, Australia

“As a breeder of working lines of labradoodles, we recommend all owners to get a copy of Puppy Zen, and read it before they get their pup. It has been a very helpful book and we are consistently told how prepared they feel for their pup, and we notice that the transition into their new homes is extremely smooth. If people are thinking of getting a pup, we would wholeheartedly recommend Puppy Zen and also Mark’s training videos. The information in Puppy Zen will give you the key to continue with the training from when puppy comes home, through the crucial early socialising period.”

Rhea

Rhea - Breeder, Cambridge

‘Puppy Zen book has ABSOLUTELY blown me away. The amount of useful and sensible tools/information/knowledge and skills to learn in this book is just incredible. It highlights how important it is as responsible dog owners to play our part and provides excellent guidance on how to achieve it.’
