My puppy Reggie recently trained with Top Dog Academy puppy training and I could not recommend it more. I found Rhonda to be very knowledgeable and she really cared that you got the most out of the training. Very interactive with each puppy and always made it fun.

Rob Yette

We have just completed the puppy preschool program a combination of on-line via zoom and one session face to face. The information provided by Rhonda is invaluable and has helped us manage and understand our puppies behaviour. We will definitely be continuing our training with Rhonda by participating in her obedience classes and would highly recommend her services

Cassandra Evans

Excellent communication skills which Rhonda easily adapts to suit the understanding of her "Captains". The difference in confidence in our "lock-down" puppy was quite frankly extraordinary after only 6 weekly lessons. So much so, that we will be continuing with Rhonda for the foreseeable future to discover the wonder of my lovely dog within the limitations of my ability¬†ūüôā¬†Tks Rhonda, we love you xxx

Tracey Parker

We have just completed Rhonda’s 6 week Basic Obedience course with our two middle-aged Ridgebacks. It has made a world of difference to both of them and us! Rhonda is a fully qualified teacher with lots of experience and we highly recommend her for all levels of fun and positive training. Thanks Rhonda, we are looking forward to continuing on with your socialisation walks.
