West Bromwich Training Reviews
Anna Patyk & Ragnar (Doberman)
I had an amazing experience with Mo, the trainer, at the dog training center.
Mo has incredible knowledge about dogs and explains everything in a very accessible way. After just one session, the improvement in my 8-month-old Doberman's leash walking is remarkable.
I highly recommend this school; it's a fantastic investment in our future with Ragnar.
Yvette & Enzo (Border Collie)
I recently had a training session with Mo, due to my Border collie's inability to listen and walk without dragging me after cars, but ever since the very informative and practical training session coupled with follow up phone calls I have seen a vast improvement with my dogs behaviour.
I would definitely recommend the services of Vislor dog training.
Susan Love & Freddie (Cockapoo)
A big thank you to Mo who spent time at our home one to one training.
Mo is very caring, full of knowledge and put us in the right road to achieving great results. Within a short time we can clearly see he has made a good start.
We will continue with the plan Mo put in place for us moving forward. He his keen for updates and at the end of the phone if we need help.
I would highly recommend and many thanks to Mo for his valued help.
Pete Guhman & Kylo (Labrador)
We are first time dog owners and were looking for some help training our puppy and came across Vislor.
From the first point of contact Lorraine was extremely and passed us onto the perfect trainer for us
Straight away it was clear to see that Mo was very experienced and passionate about his work. We could contact Mo at any time of day and he would point us in the right direction straight away.
The lessons were easy to arrange and Mo would try and fit lessons around our schedule as best he could.
After our five lessons our puppy has made real progress with Mo as his trainer and we were reassured by Mo that we are still able to keep in contact and that he can help us further if need be.
Omarah Taylor & Arlo (American Bulldog)
Would highly recommend!
We are first time owners to our beautiful American bulldog pup and was after some guidance and direction with how to correct and teach our pup.
Lorraine was extremely helpful in explaining how everything worked at Vislor and took the time to understand our needs.
We booked our first session with Mo and and he was amazing - so friendly, you can tell that he loves his job and really has a care for the dogs, he has given us SO much to move forward with.
The training field was also such a great space and easy to find and communication with everyone has been faultless.
Really grateful we found them 👍🏽
Kasia Starosta & Ruby (Minature Poodle)
We decided to have 1:1 puppy training for our Ruby after we had bad experience with puppy class for our other dog Roxy 3 years ago (with different trainers).
During the lessons we had a lot of training tips from Mo not only for the puppy but some really good advice for the older one too - both making such a big impact in such short time it’s unbelievable.
Of course we had to put work in too - it doesn’t just happen magically but without the advice we had from Mo we would be going round in circles and older dog issues would probably become puppy issues.
Lessons are worth every penny and we will be back for obedience and nose work with both dogs as it’s great fun for them.
So glad we found Vislor !
Mo went above and beyond ! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Cheryl Freestone & Burt (Bull Terrier)
We met Moses today for a training session with our Bull Terrier who has been experiencing certain dominance issues, we have tried 2 different trainers up until now with limited success and after reading Vislors previous reviews decided to try them, l must say from our initial contact communication was fantastic, upon arrival at our first greeting we were met with a very pleasant welcoming reception, time was taken to explain everything to us about the reasons behind the behaviours we were experiencing and a stong plan put in place to move forward with.
We found Moses to be very knowledgeable and affable, with everything broken down to clearly understandable levels. He clearly loves his job and having the ability to assist in making sure our fur babies having absolutely the best life possible.
An honest, guy and genuine passionate dog lover.
Would not hesitate to recommend.

P Kaur & Enzo (Labrador)
Mo was an absolute god send to us.
We contacted him when we first got our pup at 8 weeks. He was really informative and patient, helped us with our puppy nipping, sleeping and socialising.
We couldn't thank him enough and recommend him to all of our friends and family 💫
Roger Miles & Ruairi (formerly Enzo)
It’s been a totally pawsitive experience with everyone at Vislor. We’re loving Lab puppy Ruairi as our newest family member. He’s not only gorgeous and friendly, he really is a very good boy, thanks to Lorraine and Travis – what a delight!
From the moment we first contacted Vislor, it was clear that they’re an exceptional outfit, a cut above all the others out there. Professional but also very friendly and Lorraine is always super quick to respond. The whole Vislor team clearly cares about what we’re looking for in a dog. Lorraine and Travis have a real focus and interest in Ruairi’s specific character and needs. They like to know what sort of life he has with us, so they can support it with just the right elements of training.
Lorraine and the team are easy to talk to, they listen carefully and are generous in sharing their insights and skills. Rather than just listing a random load of methods we could use, they always take the time to show us specific methods, to guide us through what Ruairi needs. So, all the basic instructions as well as more advanced things like walking to heel, waiting by the door, and not jumping up when excited. They really do know pretty much everything there is to know about how and why dogs behave as they do! There seem to be no problems they haven’t already worked out how to deal with.
As I didn’t really “speak dog” before this, Vislor have been brilliant at helping to understand how Ruairi thinks, so we have realistic expectations of how to behave with him. There are so many simple ways to change things for the better, when you know how, as we do now.
Lorraine is a lovely, caring person to deal with. She offers lots of support and communicates really well, making little videos for us to show what to do if we’re ever stuck. Practical advice has also been great – things like which leads to use (and how), the best food, crates, everything. Absolutely we’d recommend them, if you’re looking for dog training that’s super-effective, because they understand how important it is for you as owner and your furry friend to work together – it’s so important to engage with both sides, as Vislor understand so well.
We’re so glad we found Vislor. Ruairi is a cheerful and well-behaved puppy, and we’re more confident owners, thanks to Lorraine and Travis. We’re glad to have Ruairi visit Vislor for training top-ups as he grows up, because he loves it there and we enjoy the results. Thanks, Vislor, you’ve brought us a lot of happiness!

Lynne Taylor & Erik (German Shepherd/Malinois)
I would 100% recommend Vislor Dog Training Centre.
After trying other dog trainers who could not help me with Erik, my 10 month old GSD/Malinois, I contacted Lorraine who was so friendly and helpful. She organised an initial assessment session with Travis, who was very professional and reassuring, and helped me to understand Erik's problems and what training would be needed.
I decided to send Erik on the three week residential training programme with Mo. Oh my goodness, what a difference! Erik is like a different dog! He now walks so well on the lead, no pulling, lunging and barking at other dogs and people.
I understand there are no quick fixes and that I need to continue to use the techniques so patiently (and humorously!) taught to me by Mo. Nothing was too much trouble for Mo, he gave me daily updates and regular videos and phone calls. He is such a dedicated and hard working trainer, I could tell that he genuinely cared about Erik's progress.
Mo was absolutely brilliant and I fully agree with his philosophy 'Changing the world one dog at a time.'
Thank you so very much Mo, you have certainly changed our lives!
Lynne and Erik
