I rescued Haggis 2 and half years ago as a puppy. She is a black Singapore special and had been through puppy preschool for basic training, which meant she walked well but with a lot of anxiety problems and boundary issues around the house. It was at this point where I couldn’t eat my meal, or sit next to my boyfriend on the lounge before she would bark and/or try and hump me. I contacted Anita mainly, because I was also unable to get through a single work zoom call without Haggis barking at either me, or at things outside. So I'd been given a recommendation to contact Anita and I immediately loved her approach. Anita has helped Haggis adapt to sleeping separately, general obedience and attention, with reduced barking, and her anxiety when crossing the road has significantly improved. Haggis had a HUGE FEAR of crossing roads at intersections, and in the first few sessions we saw improvements through lead techniques I learned, and by using a harness. I CANNOT BELIEVE how much calmer she is and I have really noticed her as being all round happier! I would highly recommend training packages to ensure you spend time continuously improving and not just specific behaviours - it is nice to know your pet is happier and always learning new things that affect other areas of their behaviour. I am now moving from Singapore to Australia, and Anita is helping me crate train which has been super successful through using the techniques and games we worked on early in our training sessions. Having owned Dogs my entire life, I thought I knew enough of the basics of dog training, but I've been surprised to see how much of her behaviour was in my reaction and her fear that was only worsening because of my reactions. I am confident that I can relax and enjoy time with Haggis - both inside and outside my house - anytime! THANK YOU ANITA!
We adopted Lyra and she had a real fear of crates as she has been put into them before against her will. We had to move her from SG to HK and wanted her to be comfortable in the crate so that the journey wouldn't be so scary for her. We were at the point of losing hope of her every being ok in the crate when a friend recommended Anita's services. Thank god for this! We were away and asked Anita to take Lyra for 9 days and do 6 sessions of crate training - TOTALLY WORTH IT! She got more and more comfortable in her crate and her journey was that little bit more pleasant. Would definitely recommend both TRAINING and BOARDING services - it is nice to know your pet is staying with someone who knows what they are doing and who treats your baby well!
We are so incredibly thankful for Anita and everything she has done for our sweet Penny. From the first consultation phone call through the very last session, Anita was kind and patient working with us and encouraging us each step along the way. What we loved the most about our journey was how attentive and gentle she was when in our home. Anita carefully listened to our training needs. She created a plan for our Singapore Special and helped us cultivate a calm and confidence environment for our 2 year old dog to thrive. It was a joy to celebrate big milestones with her! She was responsive to questions and held us accountable with weekly check ins. We can’t thank her enough and highly recommend Singapaw Dog Training services for other families needing a bit of help.
Anita is very professional, friendly, and always punctual. Her two point harness method really helped our puppy improve her leash walking. In fact, Anita goes above and beyond her duties as a dog trainer. She introduced me to new dog food that my fussy puppy would actually eat. She even helped groom my puppy’s ears when they became knotted after a day at the beach. Anita is the perfect package!
Anita has been nothing but professional and kind. She is very patient and takes her time to explain in detail every step that she takes while training the dogs and makes us owners very comfortable and reassured with every session. Highly recommended for every dog owner.
My family and I loved dealing with Anita. We are new to dog ownership, and very green. Anita gave us great ideas, tips and practical tools on what we needed to do to improve our interactions with our dog. She was never in a hurry and always stayed longer than allocated time, and we would have no hesitation in recommending Anita to others.
I cannot recommend Anita highly enough for anyone who is looking to help their dog improve or change their behaviours. Anita came to my home and helped me with my two rescue dogs and their various problematic behaviours that were causing stress to both myself and to my dogs! She was patient, kind and reassuring, and with her incredible knowledge and training she was able to alter their behaviours and give me the tools to continue with the training that she had started with me and my dogs in our home. She continued to be on hand even after the training sessions to further reassure me. I am forever grateful to what Anita did to help me and my beloved dogs.
A much loving & caring holistic trainer, both training your doggy and his pawrents. she helped us with our Beagle puppy (god knows they are not the easiest one) to be more relaxed, calm, assertive, and happy, and that does not destroy home and respect our boundaries (it’s still a puppy, but she is almost there and we have now the right tools to help).
Anita is extremely good without wanting to sound dramatic she has helped me change my life completely to a point where I can now walk both of my dogs together off lead .. previously my rescue would try and attack every dog she came into contact with ... now it is a joy to walk my dogs...
I cannot recommend Anita at Algarve Dog Training, enough.
Fantastic techniques which are communicated to both owner and dog simply and clearly - easy to use guides with instant results.
Anita is hugely knowledgeable and on hand once training is over to offer advice and encouragement and answer and queries.
Couldn't be more happy with the results - one very happy owner and 2 obedient dogs.....Thank you!!
I can highly recommend Anita. I've been using her grooming services for some time now and am very happy. She has a lot of knowledge on what is best for all sorts of breeds. My dogs adore Anita, and she certainly knows how to handle them in a kind , loving way. I'm going to use her training services soon too as I have a lot of confidence that she can help with my dogs "issues"
I have never known anyone so devoted to dogs and their welfare as Anita. She has fostered so many and helped find many more a forever home. Couldn't recommend her enough. Wonderful lady and family.
