I contacted Brian at the start of the year in a panic, as my newly arrived South-east Asian (Hmong) Hunting Dog (SuSi) had developed a taste for chasing sheep. She’s 5 years old and has spent her entire life living free-range in northern Laos; about the most independent dog you could imagine. Susi is an escape artist and capable of climbing all fences she has encountered to date. She has (or should I say, had) zero recall. With sheep all around our house I couldn’t imagine how things were going to turn out.
Brian made time for us immediately, and he tailored a solution suited to both me and Susi. His training led to much more than sheep aversion, and has totally turned around our owner-dog relationship and day to day life.
Part of me always worried that training her would mean losing a piece of her free spirit — I’m so pleased to find out that this is not the case at all. She’s the same dog, just happier and more settled than I’ve ever seen her. Our interactions are all positive now, and from time to time we share moments of mutual understanding that would not have been possible without Brian’s help.
Thanks Brian! I strongly recommend his services.
Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve seen Beren change from a frightened puppy to a much happier, well adjusted member of our family.
Beren loves working with Brian now and gets so much out of his training sessions. I can’t thank Brian enough.
Brian was fantastic. Took Lucy for one visit & we had our problems sorted. Recall is now fantastic & she is no bother while out & about. Cannot thank Brian enough. First class service. I would highly recommend this service. Thanks Brian.
I have been up the wall with my Sprocker pup 6months old. Always pulling, I have spent a fortune on all the fancy harnesses and puppy training classes but I still have one arm longer than the other. As a last resort I googled dog trainer in Dumfries and found Brian. I could hardly believe my eyes that after just 20mins my pup was walking to heel without pulling using a very simple lead he designed himself. I can’t praise him highly enough. Thanks Brian.
Can’t thank Brian enough. In just 10 days we have seen a massive change in our Labrador – mainly by training us more than the dog lol. It’s been great to be given the help and advice to help our dog – who wasn’t adjusting all that well to our new addition to the family. He’s so much better already. Still a way to go, but very confident that we are on the right road to a happy & obedient dog. Highly Recommend K9 Care dog training to everyone in need of assistance with their 4 legged friends!
Great help and advice from Brian, the Calm8 lead has made my dog a lot calmer when out. I would recommend Brian’s help and the lead
Brian is brilliant. Called him to help with my boxer who pulled on the lead, had him walking by my side within 20mins! Can’t thank you enough Brian for making my walks with Bobby much more enjoyable.
Great service, loves dogs and my big boys learning n is happy ! For a spooky Rotty, Brian’s calmed him down brilliant…. No other dog trainer has come close to Brian! N his lil Spaniels are lovely and help my boy too
We have turned our dogs behaviour around with the help of K9 Care Dog Training. Our dog walks are now an enjoyable experience again. Thanks so much.
Brian has been great. Helped us correct some bad habits our lab puppy had. The new Calm8 lead has solved a huge problem with me and walking our dog! I can now do it easily and it’s enjoyable!! Thanks for all your help Brian
We can’t recommend or praise Brian enough. our springer spaniel Murphy was really difficult to take for a walk & had some bad doggy manners. Thanks to Brian’s hard work & knowledge, Murphy is a completely different dog & a pleasure to walk. We learnt a lot from Brian about how dogs think & only wish we had found Brian a lot earlier than we did!

We are really pleased with the service we have received so far. I contacted Brian as I wanted a dog trainer to put us on the right track with our puppy. I wanted help with how to stop him biting and other things and Brian was really helpful, offered advice and made me feel more confident to deal with it……….would definitely recommend.
Fantastic! Had Brian help me with our 2 spaniels today they have learned so much already and so have I!! I would recommend highly to anyone with dog training issues, wish we had found him months ago!!
Brian is an amazing dog trainer. Charlie was definitely not easy to train being a stubborn/cheeky beagle cross and he is now really brilliant at recall, walking to heel etc. Brian’s own spaniels are the most perfectly trained dogs I’ve ever seen its unbelievable. I cannot recommend him highly enough
Brian helped us lots when we got our GSP pup. Introduced us to ‘clicker training’ which worked really well! Fab service.
