We were introduced to Adem Fehmi December 2010, when my family gave a home to our first dog a flat coated retriever 8 weeks old. We were all total novices when it came to bringing up a new dog and were given a recommendation by a friend to have a one to one session with Adem to set us in the right direction of having a well behaved and well mannered dog. We progressed from this to Kennel Club puppy training, ending with Sid, our dog receiving his Gold award within one year of weekly classes and practicing at home.
Without Adem I believe Sid would not be the well rounded, social able dog he is today. Sid is now training as a Gun Dog and doing excellently thanks to Adems ground work with us. Sid travels with us everywhere, hotels, restaurants, and holidays home and abroad, travels on public transport, basically we can take him anywhere and know he will be well behaved, well mannered and a huge hit with everyone.
Adem's training techniques are very calm and clear; he is very patient and answers questions thoroughly. He is excellent at spotting areas of development for dog and owner, giving praise when deserved of course. He is always at the end of a phone to offer advice and has time for everyone. I would recommend Adems to new dog owners, dogs with behaviour problems 100%.
Charlie is a rescued dog who had 4 owners before me,I was about to give him up myself because of his bad behaviour .Then I met someone in the park who gave me Adems phone number as I do not like to give up on any dog as I believe its the owners who are usualy to blame for bad behaviour so Adem came to my house and told me where I was going wrong .We then went to group training classes ,this ofcourse helped with socialising Charlie and learning what I expected of him .He now has The Bronze ,Silver & Gold good citizen Kennel club award and is now having fun doing Agility.It has been hard work for Charlie and Me but if it had not been for Adem Fehmi, with his kindness, patience , understanding and never giving up on us life would have been very restricted .THANK YOU SO MUCH ADEM.

Charlie has gone on to have a career on the small screen. Look out for his appearance in this advertisement for Denti-Stix!
Hi ! I found out about Adem as i was being dragged to the park by my working spaniel Charlie, we passed a lady walking her dog perfectly by her side and i had to stop and ask her how she done it and she gave me Adems number. At that time Charlie was ten months old and reducing me to tears most days, it wasn't just the pulling he wouldn't come back when called and would run around us in circles and that was only a few of the problems, he was out of control.
Adem came round and we started training he was fantastic, he showed me that most of the problems were not with Charlie but me i was a bad leader. Slowly things got better and now i can let him of the lead without worrying.
Last summer we got another spaniel and have not had the same problems I would like to think its because Adem taught me to be a better leader and have a better understanding of my dogs. I could not recommend him enough.
We were first given Adem's number following a consultation with our vet regarding Rocco's aggressive behaviour. We were having problems with his aggression, he had attacked us both on a number of occasions over the years and we were struggling to cope with him. There are very few people he trusts, namely me, my husband and his parents, so we were running out of hope that anyone would be able to help us. He is also very unsociable around other dogs.
We booked Adem in for 121 sessions, from the moment he came into the house he asserted his dominance over Rocco and we were quickly amazed by how well Rocco responded to him, out on a walk Rocco instantly walked to heel. We continued to work with Adem and begun to take him for day trips to a kennels, where Adem worked with him both one on one and with his dog, Yogi. I don't think we have ever seen him so close to another dog in such a calm and contented manner.
Seeing Rocco with Adem really is amazing, he had an instant respect for him and seems to really enjoy any time spent with him.
We can't thank Adem enough for his help, it has now been over 2 years since Rocco last attacked either of us. Additionally due to the improvements we have seen in him we are now able to have the confidence to leave him in kennels and go on holiday for the first time in over 5 years.
We continue to have contact with Adem and Rocco still enjoys spending the day with Adem at the kennels. We hope to have Adem involved for the rest of Rocco's life as the influence and effect he had on him is invaluable.
Thanks again for all your help, I hope the above is ok. Let me know when you're back at the kennels for the day as I'm sure rocco would love to see you.
