Another interesting course and excellent lecturer.
Very interesting and enjoyable as always!
Excellent course and brilliant day.
A really brilliant day, I feel like I’ve learnt loads thank you.
Thoroughly enjoyed the course, everyone here is a credit to Hawksmoor. Thank you I will be back for the next set.
Couldn’t of asked for a better place to train, or people to do the training, thank you for all my new knowledge.
Course was fantastic, the staff were patient, accommodating for learning, a trip worth coming, pre communication was perfect and reduced nerves and stress. Passion is heart felt by you all and I can’t praise you all enough. I will recommend; a very professional approach.
Fantastic course, really enjoyed it and very informative, thank you.
I wouldn’t train anywhere else! If Claire was more local to me I would refer my behaviour case to her and use her for my dogs.
I really enjoyed the case studies we looked at and I learnt a lot more from them. They were all valuable, thank you.
It was interesting to listen to the dogs Claire had dealt with and how they responded.
Claire is very passionate and knowledgable with real life examples.
Excellent course very well delivered. Thoroughly enjoyed it and I have learnt lots to take back to my clinic.
Fabulous course once again! Wouldn’t dream of doing hydro training anywhere else. Will be returning to finish the diploma.
Another excellent lecture at Hawksmoor. Claire was again excellent. Will look out for more lectures by Claire for the future.
As usual an excellent lecture. Claire was very knowledgable and made every aspect interesting and easy to understand. I now have a better understanding of canine behaviour.
Very informative & Knowledgable lecturer. Thank you Claire now have a better knowledge of dogs behaviour & how to deal with them.
