Loose lead walking and puppy behaviours

I have used various dog trainers over the years and can honestly say I haven’t seen results in such a short space of time as we have with Simon , highly recommended and even though we are in Teesside will have no hesitation travelling to Manchester to work with Simon again . We have a Dogue de Bordeaux and a French bulldog Simon was great with both of them

Helen (Dog Trainer)
Local dog trainer 

I am a dog trainer in Teesside @clevelanddogs. I have had the pleasure of working with Simon and recently doing a joint training workshop with him which was a huge success. He is extremely knowledge and committed in his work. He had built up such an amazing business in the area and Teessides loss is very much Manchesters gain. Over recent months I have had the pleasure of meeting some of his clients who have spoken so highly of him.
For anyone in the Manchester area looking for support with your dog I urge you to contact Simon.
Your dogs trainer needs to be the right trainer and Simon is just that.
Best of luck Simon in your relocation launch, not that you need it as I have every confidence you will smash it!

Dog to dog aggression

Simon helped me reconnect with my dog after the hassle of walking him near other dogs took all the fun out of dog ownership. He gave down to earth advice about walking strategies and very successful drills to improve the experience. Learning training games improved Baxter's fun during the day and he became much more attentive. Everything from feeding techniques to lead management was covered. Baxter is much happier and deals much better meeting on-lead dogs. Worth every penny.

Dog to dog reactivity 
Justine & Bella

I first came across Simon about a year and a half ago, when I was out on the field with my own dogs. Being into dog training my self I’m aware what I’d look for in a trainer. 

I stood and watched and it was incredible, kind of like a magician doing his magic. This ‘magic’ made himself engaging to both dog and owner. It was perfection. 

Eventually the opportunity arose to to take Bella to workshop ran by Simon and another trainer. I knew I had to go! Having a cataplectic dog, we don’t just take Bella to any trainer. It has to be someone I trust and uses the very best of training methods. Someone I trusted 100% . 

The recall workshop was fantastic, everything you’d want out of a work shop. It wasn’t pushy, it wasn’t trying to take a dog to a level they weren’t ready for and in turn being organised chaos. What it was , it was Informative, a great learning environment and as well as developing dogs to their tailored needs.

Having trained with Simon, he is everything you’d want out of a trainer. Trust me if you’re looking for a trainer or dog walker Simon is your guy. 

Simons sadly relocated away from us, but Simon without doubt is worth the travel. Having seen his talent and it’s clear there’s something very special about his training methods he deserves every bit of success he’s earned. I honestly couldn’t think of anything more I’d want out of a trainer. You’re a credit to the training world Simon

Simon was fantastic helping us with our gsd rescue Betty Boo. His ability to read her body language and ours and give us an easy to follow protocol to work on has really turned her around. His wider support online, seminars and team ups with other trainers has inspired me to progress my career working with dogs. Thank you The Mutt Nut!

Aggression to people and dogs
Sharon & Loki

We contacted Simon to ask for help training our puppy, who is very nervous around people he doesn’t know. He barks and growls and so taking him for walks was becoming very stressful. Working with Simon has made a huge difference. He is fantastic at what he does and really knows his stuff. He is able to explain things clearly and simply without being patronising. He is also very friendly and puts you at ease immediately. We’ve learnt so much over the course of our sessions and will continue to work with him. I can’t recommend him highly enough.

Alison & Charlie
Recall and loose lead walking

We rehomed a lively 13 month old Cocker Spaniel, Charlie ,just over five months ago. He was very nervous , anxious and a little bit hyper at first. He hadn’t had much experience on a lead and had never been off lead. Gradually he started to settle in but my husband and I were struggling to stop him pulling on the lead and generally just keep his attention. Then The Mutt Nutt was recommended to me 🙂
Right from the start Simon was wonderful with Charlie and us. He is very knowledgeable,friendly,patient and has a’lovely way’ of training dogs. With patience and gaining confidence Charlie is now doing wonderfully and 2-3 months down the line our walks are much more pleasurable, Charlie can go off lead and comes back to the whistle!
Things are so much more fun for us but most importantly for Charlie too 🐾🐶💕
YES I would definitely recommend Simon ,The Mutt Nutt.

Recall and hyperactivity issues
Ste & Louie

Got in touch with Simon to help with general training as wanted to develop good habits for both our dog and us.

We found the experience a pleasure, he’s friendly, very knowledgeable and helpful. Listened to our concerns and answers our questions no matter how trivial.

He really helped us to think about training and how we interact with Louie in a different way. We really feel he has changed our whole relationship with Louie.

We are already putting his advice to work and more important seeing the benefit of it.

Would recommend 100%

Puppy Course

Puppy Course

We attended Simon’s puppy classes! It was great to be in a smaller group than usual as it allowed us to have more 1-1 time with him as a trainer. Simon’s taught us to understand the aggression ladder and to train our dogs in a fantastic positive way. 
Looking at how we build confidence in our puppies, using a settle mat, socialising, loose lead walking, target practice and lots more!

He was on hand for any questions about our dogs and was fantastic! Really brought a lot out in our little rescue puppy! 

If you’re looking for a trainer, Simon’s your man! We will definitely be looking to book on more courses in the future as his training list begins to expand! Thanks Simon, you were great!

Baby prep
Mark & Bruce

Simon has been fantastic with our dog Bruce! We got in touch with Simon to help us prepare Bruce for the arrival of our baby. He did a online video consultation and followed up with a comprehensive one to one session. He’s then always been available to support us through FB as we carried out the training he gave us. He’s recently made a follow up visit to progress the training further. 

The training keeps Bruce engaged & stimulated, providing games and positive re-enforcement tips for good behaviour. I’ve found Simon’s approach very practical and affective, he also has a wealth of knowledge and experience that he shared with us to help us better understand Bruce’s behaviour.

Simon came across as professional, passionate and dedicated towards dog training and our experience has been amazing. We will continue to use him and couldn’t recommend him enough!
