“Ema is so calm, patient & very knowledgeable.”

Pippa & I have just completed the puppy foundation course & cannot recommend this enough.

Ema is so calm, patient & very knowledgeable. We chose Ema as she has 4 spaniels herself and having a springer puppy her knowledge and support has been invaluable.

Knowing what to expect with a working breed and how to manage certain behaviours has really helped as new puppy parents!

Each week we are taught something new & you can raise any concerns or questions during the class.

At the end of each session I go home confident that I can practice the excercises we have learned & are on track to raise a well behaved family dog.

As part of my Dog Training Course with the Victoria Stilwell Academy, Ema has been my mentor for the past 3 months, and I couldn't be more happy to be able to learn from her and participate of her classes and some of her one-to-one sessions with clients. She is really knowledgeable in all that has to do with dog training and dog cognition, and has been kind enough to share all that she knows with me. Her feedback has always been constructive and supportive, and she helped me develop my own skills to improve as a dog trainer. Many thanks!😊

We are currently taking part in the Beginners Gundog training group with our three-year-old dog, Leo. Ema was recommended to us by our vets and we first met her on a consultation appointment regarding Leo’s recall. Her knowledge and experience with working Cocker spaniels is 2nd to none. Week by week we have been amazed with Leo’s ability to learn and his obedience and recall have greatly improved. Ema’s relaxed approach to sessions make gundog training fun for both dogs and humans . We are looking forward to our next sessions 🐶

We took our pup, Alfie, to puppy classes and it was excellent! Ema and the gang really know what they are talking about. They do positive reinforcement training too, which was important to us. It was a 6 week course which really teaches you and your pup alot and you and your pup even get a little rosette and certificate when you pass! They also offer 1 on 1 training and lots of other courses too. Alfie has also took part in the Sniffer Dog course which he really enjoyed and helped him build his confidence loads as he is a nervous dog. Would highly recommend whether you've just got a new pup and looking to learn the basics, already have a pup and want to build confidence and learn new skills or just need 1 to 1 on a certain issue. Ema is a highly renowned trainer and behaviourist with lots of qualifications and experience under her belt. Well worth the money, I wouldn't want anyone else to teach me and my pup!

We have been using Just for Paws for just over a year, taking part in the the various group classes and the using the 1 2 1 sessions. I am a so fortunate to have chosen Ema . Having a nervous pup was a real challenge but with Ema’s knowledge, skills , patience and support we now have a pup who is growing into a happy and well adjusted dog. I would highly recommend using Just for Paws, you won’t be disappointed!

We have done 3 x 6 week training classes and a couple of 1:1s with Ema and learnt so much. Would definitely recommend the puppy classes, we learnt so many little things we didn’t even know we needed to learn. The 1:1s were to help with specific issues we were having and they were a huge help. Ema is lovely as well as very knowledgeable.

Excellent puppy training class. Learning the basics of training for both the person and the puppy. Great to meet new people with puppies in Sale too! Definitely recommend

Ema & Hannah were professional and great fun. We had wanted the quality reassurance of a Kennel Club approved trainer, which was certainly worthwhile. Sessions were well organised, personal (six-in-a-class numbers) and based around practical exercises we could practice at home - always with opportunities for Q&A. The course content was just what we needed as a family starting out with a puppy. It has given all of us greater confidence as handlers and, perhaps more importantly, will hopefully help our puppy to develop as a happy and well mannered young lady. I have no hesitation recommending Just for Paws to anyone wanting to make the right start with puppy training.

We’ve just finished a 6wk Puppy course with Ema, it was super informative! It has really helped focus Wilbur, especially training him away from our older dog. Lots of useful tips that we’ve been able to practise week to week. Thanks again to Ema, Hannah & Roo 🐶
