"I highly recommend Surrey Search Dogs, the online Indication course has been fantastic for my 12 week old puppy. It has been great to have something so productive to work on. Astrid's expertise has been brilliant and my puppy and I have learnt so much from her during this course. It has been a perfect way to build his confidence and give him focus."
