West Bromwich Training Reviews
Lynn Jesson & Rodney (Sproodle)
We had 1 training session with Mo, he was fantastic, he explained everything really well and our dog is transformed.
He is walking to heel, no pulling or reacting to other dogs, we are so pleased.
Would recommend Mo without hesitation
Martin Emms & Izzy (Springer)
I have 2 springers, the one in question is a 6 month old working springer thats literally into everything from cans, leaves, sticks double her size and anything thats not nailed down, doesn't walk on the lead, intermttently likes to listen and a general loveable pain in the a**.
In steps Mo, within 5 mins she's sitting still, 10 mins later she's still sitting there while we're throwing a ball in front of her face and she's still sitting there 20mins later, after that we go for a walk and it's the usual mess she's all over the place and I'm getting tangled up, again in steps Mo and she's walking next to me loud and proud and no pulling.
I ain't saying the problems have magically disappeared but after 1 session I could definitely see what can be done when you get a bit of guidance on how to deal with situation.
Glen Rhodes & Oscar (German Shepherd)
Travis thank you very much for the help and guidance you have given me with my German Shepherd "Oscar'.
He is now much better behaved, walks well on the lead and the recall is coming along nicely.
Top class trainer.
Clare Evans & Daisy (Cockapoo)
We have just completed our puppy training package with trainer Mo and have loved every minute.
Mo was excellent from the start and always on hand when I had any questions. I felt like it wasn't 'just 5 sessions' it was much more. Mo was very approachable and had brilliant tips and advice. I felt nothing was too much trouble.
Overall an amazing start to our training journey.
From Clare & Daisy
Grace Williams & Evie (Springer)
Started my puppy package and just completed lesson 3/5, Trainer Mo who I have been completing my training with is absolutely amazing and I couldn’t recommend him more!
Anything you need and any struggles he is there ready to help, if you’re looking for a trainer then I assure you vislor is the way to go!
Doc Singh (2 x German Shepherds)
We have 2 Alsatians who pulled on the lead,. Mo and the team were very thorough, knowledgeable and often hilarious with their approach to sorting our the issues that were in hand.
Definitely booking another session and probably more to sort out the matters relating to our dogs in due course.
If you need a trainer who knows their onions, these guys are definitely the ticket.
I’ve been going to Trav an the team for IGP training for the last 2 years an I cannot recommend them enough.
Trav an Mo are two of the best trainers I have came across a the knowledge between them is exceptional.
The atmosphere at Vislor is always welcoming and a nice environment to be in, no egos just passionate trainers looking to help you on your journey.
Highly highly recommended.
Charlotte Poulton & Otto (German Shorthaired Pointer)
Amazing work with the guys at Vislor.
Really helped me and our pup progress together.
I have been training with Trav since March '22 with my Malinois. Our relationship has improved so much and our partnership has really cemented.
Trav has a super ability to think outside of the box and finds solutions for what best suits the dog in front of him.
I would, and have recommended him to others. And hopefully we will be training with him (for IGP) for many years to come.
Phoebe Morgan 2 x German Shepherds
We have 2 German Shepards who we love dearly but they we’re getting a nightmare on the leads when walking very reactive, pulling, barking at everything just not listening and fighting with each other.
We found Vislor and Travis and they taught us how to work with our dogs and made us understand why they were behaving like they were giving us the knowledge and tools to have 2 well behaved dogs.
Travis is amazing he’s trained us to train our dogs it’s amazing I would highly recommend Vislor & Travis after just 2 sessions we have our dogs walking by our side listening to us amazing, we’re continuing to use the tools that Travis learned us and we are happier and so are the dogs so massive thanks 🙏
