Alison is fantastic. We've seen

a marked improvement in

our puppy - who was

very headstrong.

Carefree Dogs was not the first training we had used, but was certainly the last. We felt at ease, and completely supported.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Alison has really helped us with Louis, our one year old Airedale.

Alison has transformed our walks into a manageable pleasure by teaching us how to manage him.

Highly recommended!

Alison is great to work with. Very patient and non-judgemental, with some great techniques and ideas, tailored specifically for your individual needs.


I found Alison very friendly and approachable and always offering help inbetween sessions on the phone if required.

I would highly recommend Alison.

Alison's way of training is so lovely and calm, she not only instils confidence in Ivy

but also in me as her owner.

Ivy has made huge progress in all aspects of her behaviour and I am thrilled that we have achieved this purely with expertise.
