Trixie is a special lady who calmed me down and helped with my behavioural problems, let alone the dogs!
She has the grace to truly listen and come up with an action plan when it seemed like a hopeless situation.
I have two chihuahuas and an elderly bigger dog, tensions were high as the male pup reached puberty.
It took a couple of weeks, changing their diet, routine and using all the tips I was given, but with consistency, my home is now a love shack 🏡
During the transition I messaged Trixie a couple of times in despair. This compassionate lady gave me more suggestions, and did not charge anymore money.
Trixie came recommended to me by an experienced vet, but I recommend her from the point of view, that I am usually a very cynical person.
Trixie is truly a magical lady, for dogs and humans alike. I will always be grateful and her modest fee is nothing compared to how happy she made us all 🥰💝😘
We highly recommend Trixie – she has helped us repeatedly with our pup throughout his various stages and some anxiety issues. We are first time dog owners and noticed our puppy seemed more nervous than most from the start. Trixie came in and gave us tips on how to make him feel more secure and confident. We attended puppy socialising class and he went from being terrified his first class to being one of the more confident dogs by the third session. He continues to go through new stages as he grows and Trixie is there to help guide us through each new challenge. Our pup loves her and is so excited to see her even if it’s been a few months in-between and he takes some time to trust people so to see how he has bonded with Trixie is fantastic. Trixie even helped my Mum become comfortable with our pup – I’ve never seen her pet a dog in my life and after one session – she and the dog were inseparable. Trixie is patient (with owners as well) and takes the time to assess our dog’s behaviour and the motivation behind it.Amazing tips and tricks to get him to understand and set some boundaries. Thanks Trixie for all of your amazing insight and work!

Trixie is a fantastic behaviourist and trainer using positive reinforcement techniques. She has worked with both my Dachshunds from puppies, from socialising, heel lead walking and recall to behavioural adjustment training for fear aggression in my older dog. I highly recommend Trixies services

Oh wow! One hour with Trixie gave us more tips for our dogs than any other behaviourist we spoke to and they all worked!! Thank you M

Hi Trixie, Billy and Bruno absolutely love your Chase’n’Tug training toy. It wears them put in no time at all. You were such a big help when we needed help with Billy being bored and not interacting with anything. Thank you Chris

2020 Cat behaviour
Trixie has transformed our kitten, he was a stray that we found on holiday when he was less than a month old. He has a long term illness which he contracted and has many behavioural issues as a result. We were considering rehoming him as a last resort as we had tried absolutely everything to try to help him calm down. Trixie managed to make a HUGE difference to his behaviour in just one night and it feels like we have our old kitten back again! Can’t recommend he renough, she has been so helpful and caring and we cannot repay her.

Molly still adores her Chase’n’Tug toy, best recall ever! Annie

2019 After a bad experience when she was on heat Juno became really scared of other dogs – she would snap at any new dogs that approached her and this made walkies very difficult!! Trixie showed us techniques to help prevent this behaviour and we could see the difference within a week. Fast forward another week and Juno is taking part in a local dog show surrounded by dogs of all shapes and sizes. Juno is now a much happier little dog and two hours with Trixie and a little hard work was all it took.

Thanks for all your help with Bruno. We all feel much more confident now with his training. I think that your sessions are just as much geared towards training us as a family to be consistent as well as giving us some great fun ideas to get Bruno to be a good pup. Also thanks for taking the photos of our final training session on the beach they are fab.
Four month old Lazslo made a good decision about sheep today – and got a huge reward which was to play with one of Trixie Howard’s clever ‘Chase’n’Tug’ toys. Well done little Lazslo 💙 🐑 🐑 🐕
Leanne Emery Garner Exciting! Was thinking of you the other day, I have to thank you for the Chase n Tug toy. It’s has actually changed our lives, helping with Meisha’s issues, and now we have a vizsla pup who is bonkers for it too! Great idea! Have a good time in Switzerland x

My little pup, Sidney, has had the Life Skills training and extra training with Trixie and he absolutely loved all of it. He learned very quickly and a lot of it was due to the Tug & Chase toy. I really think he loves it more than chicken!! It’s fabulous outside to let him chase it and it wears him out. I think I’m going to have to order a second one as he’s wearing this one out…..fabulous!!
Trixie is so gentle and kind that Sidney loved training with her. He learned so much and so did I 🤣
We highly recommend Trixie for adolescent dog training – she’s amazing! Molly has responded so well. She loves her snuffle mat and doesn’t bother us when we are eating anymore. Fantastic. And with the Chase n Tug toy, her recall is 100% now. Incredible. We cannot stress how excellent this training is, it’s genius. Thank you so much Trixie � Annie

2018 We highly recommend Trixie for adolescent dog training – she’s amazing! Molly has responded so well. She loves her snuffle mat My vet, Laura from Coastways, recommended I contacted Trixie as my 12 week old puppy, Fifi, was biting quite painfully and I was feeling very distressed. Trixie responded immediately by Email and a follow up phone call and provided very sensible, helpful advice. We then attended the brilliant Puppy Skills Class run by Trixie and Jay. Fifi loved meeting the other puppies and I found the advice very useful and reassuring. I decided to take Trixie’s 3 session puppy training course. The first session at home was a revelation. Trixie was so gentle but firm and immediately loved by Fifi. She encouraged her to stop biting within the first hour by recognising that Fifi was very bright and probably bored needing further stimulation and “work”. She loved responding to Trixie’s commands and to the snuffle mat and tug and chase toy. The next two sessions in the park and the beach were equally successful. We keep meeting dogs trained by Trixie as we recognise the expressions used such as “say Hello”, “…..(dog’s name) come!”. She has a well deserved fabulous reputation. I really love Trixie’s approach of praise rather than harsh discipline.

I have just this week asked Trixie for further advice for my now six month old Fifi and, as always, she responded immediately with very sound recommendations. I’m really pleased she’s helping Fifi develop into a confident, happy, well behaved (most of the time) pooch. I’m sure we’ll stay in contact during the next phases (on no … teenage years!)
Thanks and love Trixie from Fifi and Carolyne x

Mark and I both feel we have been most fortunate having you supporting us with kobe’s lovely integration into our lives. Thank you so much Trixie. Lots of love. Fariba xx ❤ May 2016
Trixie is brilliant. We joined her for Puppy Life Skills when our puppy, Geoffrey, was a couple of months old. And then we decided to get one-to-one puppy training with Trixie too. It has been an absolute revelation, and Geoffrey has responded so positively to it. Trixie’s Chase’n’Tug toy works particularly well with a distracted terrier, and he is now so much better at recall. We couldn’t recommend Trixie more highly! Laura
Highly recommend. Bella loves her Chase n Tug, we play every evening and it is her favourite game. now a great choice of toys to go on the end. Very quick delivery and very helpful and friendly. Naomi
I just wanted to say thank you so much for the Chase’n’tug. I could never get my dog to take notice of me and he would never come back when I call him, but he loves this and keeps watching me all the time now. Not only that, but when I call him, he runs up to me and sits waiting, but also so do other dogs, they like it as well. I think you will do really well with this. Linda, Brighton
The Chase n Tug has been an amazing discovery for our energetic 3 year old boxer, Harvey. He reacts to it far more favourably than any other toy, making walks more fun for him and for us too. We highly recommend both the toy and the genius behind the concept. Christian & Myles, Brighton.
I wanted to again thank you for your help with Poppy. The Chase’n’Tug brings her back 85% of the time. There has been a vast improvement in her behaviour.Many thanks Vicky

If you never buy another toy for your dog get this !!!! Fantastic …. our dog loves it and we keep it exclusively for when we walk off the lead and it has been a great training aid for that purpose … Thanks Trixie …..

Subject: Rafa: lead training
Hi Trixie, I had a very successful 10m lead walk with Rafa yesterday, utilising all the skills you shared with us. Rafa didn’t stray beyond a couple of metres (with the exception of chasing a couple of birds!), I think he’s as anxious about being able to roam as I am. I’m so chuffed with Rafa’s progress, he’s really taking to your techniques. Rafa will be part of our family for a long time and I am so determined to put the effort in now so he is a pleasurable addition to the family. I’m so glad you were recommended to us. See you next week, Susie x
13th October 2014 I just love to watch you work, you have the most amazing rapport with dogs and you provoke incredible responses with such a gentle manner. It seems to be all about calm and patience; it would be lovely if that approach could be adopted in the human world! I’m always amazed at how willing dogs are to learn and how intelligent they are and with such little effort they can become real buddies. I got so much out of the session this afternoon, but best of all was Rafa’s happy expression you left us with. Soppy eh?! So glad you were recommended to us.
Look forward to seeing you on the 29th. Susie
Seeing as I had never had a dog from a puppy before I wanted to get it right so decided to get some training for my boy Bruce. I’m extremely pleased with the results and would highly recommend Trixie’s services, she was extremely clear and patient (even with a dog as stubborn as mine) haha!! Hana Kessler
Feb 2016 Hi Trixie, One training session with you was more helpful and enjoyable than the 16 sessions we had at a local dog training class. I love the Chase’n’Tug, it is wonderful Jackie and Paddy the Cockerpoo
