Leicester Training Reviews

Tracey Ridgway-Sanderson & Chewie (German Shepherd)

Rich had our dog Chewie for a 3 week residential.

The difference is unbelievable and Chewie now enjoys walks in all situations and environments. Obviously there is still work to be done but Rich has laid the foundations and given us the tools to continue this training.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Rich or Vislor to anyone.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again….. thank you Rich, you have transformed Chewie’s lifestyle!

John Hudson & Gus (Lakeland Terrier)

One session with Rich certainly improved my Lakeland terrior's walking on a loose lead, no need for harness or halti now and no pulling

Joan Wentworth & Sandy (Poodle)

My poodle Sandy , stayed at the home of Rich the trainer and his family for 2 weeks in October, while I had an operation.

He was very well looked after and fitted in well with the family environment.

Rich did some training and socialising him, also sending me very regular updates and videos of Sandy, his settling in and progress with his training, which was very reassuring.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Rich and this site. Good communication and your dog in safe hands. Jo

Romi the German Shepherd recently attended Vislor Puppy Training Package with dog trainer Rich - Leicester

Jonathan Ward & Romi (German Shepherd)

Can't recommend Vislor highly enough.

Trav, Lorraine and Rich have been there to offer help, advice and support through the first few turbulent months of us owning a German Shepherd puppy!

Rich has not only done puppy training lessons with us on site, but he has done a home visit and is always available to message and phone at any time of day to talk through any problems or issues we have!

Vislor are a fantastic team and we will continue to use them as our puppy gets older so we stay on top of the training regime!

Carmen and Max the German Shepherd - Vislor One-to-One Dog Training - Leicester

Carmen & Max

Rich is a great trainer! Nothing is too much trouble.

Max started his training at 14 weeks with Vislor. He is a joy to walk and my companion in the pub and coffee shops. Vislor gave me the foundations to be able to enjoy my dog. Rich has helped with his obedience and given me training that has helped keep Max motivated.

Vislor and Rich come highly recommended ⭐ by myself and Max 🐾

Wayne Morris, Missy & Otto (Sighthounds)

Couldn't fault the way he worked with us and his general philosophy.

He spent more time with us than we paid for and offered a number of ideas to train our two dogs. Unsurprisingly his ideas have worked and both animals have responded well. Life with them outside our home is much easier and far more rewarding.

I was surprised that he never made us feel responsible (as a result of our failings) for the behaviour of our charges. He saw things as they were and offered positives to move forward. Whilst he stressed that he is always happy to revisit to offer more help, he isn't a serial attendee at our expense. He seems happiest when his advice leads to results and there is no further need for him to return (and charge us again for his services).

His fees were in line with others we approached but most of these suggested that the work would be ongoing and involve continued payments. He has visited us once and our dogs are manageable as a result of his advice.

His success has not made him a great deal richer but has made our lives with our pets far more rewarding.

I cannot offer enough praise and thanks.

Michael Mcfarlane & Dory the Dogue de Bordeaux at Vislor Puppy Training Package - Leicestershire

Michael McFarlane & Dory (Dogue de Bordeaux)

Had the puppy package, Rich has given great advice and my puppy has progressed really well.

Would recommend.

James Carter & Luna (Labrador Cross)

Home visit by Rich was amazing. We talked over our problems with our dog Luna and he then proposed how to remedy the issues. Within the same lesson Luna was then on the way to being heal trained and a plan set out (at our speed) for her recall training.

Rich went above and beyond what I expected from the first session and we will booking more sessions at the training ground when we have mastered the heal training.

Highly recommend.

American Bully Luna - 1-to-1 Dog Training at Vislor - Leicestershire.

Utsanee Phalee & Luna (American Bully)

Had a great experience with Vislor dog training and Rich ..... I went for obedience training and general behaviour with Luna who is a American Bully puppy and the improvements have been dramatic, from pulling like a maniac to now casually walking by my side.

Recall work and general character and manners have vastly improved as she was a high energy puppy and we will be back soon to continue Lunas progression in what we see fit for the next step.

All in all a great experience and highly recommend 👍

Thankyou Rich from James & Luna 🐾

Wendy Tucker & Jellybean (Border Terrier Puppy)

We can’t thank Richard enough for helping us train our Border Terrier puppy. What fantastic trainer he is. Our stubborn little puppy, has now become truly reformed, and with Richard’s advice and brilliant techniques, our now, six month puppy is transforming in an obedient young dog.

We definitely, recommend Richard at Vislor.

Wendy and Steve and not forgetting, ‘Jellybean’.
