The Best Ever!

I was referred to Jackie by a friend of mine when I bought a very active large breed dog aged 14 months. Although I thought I could work with Asha, she had me overwhelmed! My friend gave me Jackie’s number and she came to meet Asha the following morning. Jackie not only reassured me, she called every few days, and was very patient when I called more often. After a few mornings of training in a natural setting with Jackie, I absolutely, positively could not believe it was the same dog.

You transformed Asha into a well-mannered best friend. Asha is still her active, strong-willed self but she is very well trained and is a perfect companion. Asha wouldn’t have lasted long with many families, but Jackie you have made her my lifetime companion. We are so blessed to have found you, and you have become part of our family. Your facility is very clean and we always enjoy our visits. Asha is my family and I wouldn’t ever trust her with anyone else. I have referred friends to you and all are very pleased!!!

I have found my dog training outstanding. I have been equipped with the skills that I need to continue to train my dog and its been great fun learning it. You are super easy to get along with and have a great passion for your dog training. Thank you.

February 26, 2018 13 weeks old Husky

I took my gorgeous but difficult puppy Lucas to Jackie. She was fabulous and it wasn’t long before I learned the problem was me. You came to me for a month and gave me the confidence to walk him in a crowded place and to get him to sit and stay before greeting other dogs. He is now a much better friend. I have worked to keep his training up (ok, I messed up a little) but do not regret taking him on. I got professional training and I learned a lot too!!

Jackie you established a good rapport with both Fin and me. You always encouraged the participation of the whole family and displayed a willingness to help at all times. You are very knowledgeable and get results. We will never forget our experience with you. The total package.

Mastiff Ed (8 months)

Ed and I thoroughly enjoyed learning Jackie’s common-sense training methods. She explained; “That the idea is to train the owner to train the dog!”

The difference in Ed is nothing less than remarkable. Also, the tuition proved to be a pleasurable bonding experience for Ed and me. I can recommend her training methodology, her professional and practised approach, her infinite patience with dumb humans, and her unmistakable deep love of dogs highly enough. She definitely knows what she is doing with dogs and why she does it.

Labrador Mojo (7 years)

I’m so glad this place exists! I was impressed by how professional everything is done giving me full confidence that my dog is left in only the best care during the day. They are exceptionally friendly and you can tell how much this means to them! I love the personalised report of his day, it’s little extras such as this that make this place truly one of a kind! Mojo has such fun days, made lots of new friends and can never wait to return!

Thank you so much to Jackie and George, one very happy dog and very happy parents here! Terry and Pamela Newton

German Shepherd (2 years).

‘Before going to ‘Rock Villa’ I had taken our dog to another trainer whose method was to dominate the dog and rule through fear.  It was a bad experience, but with Jackie (R.V.C.C), the moment we walked in for our one to one training session we could see that our dog warmed to her straight away and we felt that no matter what problems we had, she could is the one to help us with our dog.

Choosing Rock Villa was by far the best decision we ever made for our family.  We now know how to get the best out of our dog without changing her individual personality and breaking her spirit

Thank you.

The help you gave me with the recall has just been brilliant. It’s made me enjoy spending time with my dog. I have a totally different relationship with him now to before your help.

Thank you!

Bull Dog (18 months)

The most positive aspect of our experience with Rock Villa Canine Care was Jackie’s instruction. It was precise, easy to understand, well-demonstrated and followed up with hand-outs and email short that helped us build on the particular skill we were focusing on in the session. Jackie was also down-to-earth and gave us confidence that we weren’t doing everything wrong!

We would absolutely recommend Jackie and met dog owners in the park who had also used Jackie and said the same.

All the best with your future plans.

Thank you Jackie for coming over to my house at short notice to train my Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Hamlet how to play games without aggression and listen to me when I say stop.

It was fantastic, Hamlet actually did what she told him and then did it for me. Can’t wait to try the games again with him, had so much fun.

Thanks Jackie

Hi Jackie,

Thank you so much for all your help with our little Russell, Seb less than 24 hours and its like we have a different dog in the house. Seb chewed everything in sight and now is so content with his bones and new Kong toy. He loves his games that he learned and has picked everything up so quick.

Can’t thank you enough keep up the good work.

Hi Jackie

Just wanted to say a big thank you for taking care of Ruby last weekend.  It was her first time away from us and she came back a very happy doggie.

Thanks for bathing her and the lovely man who helped look after her.

All the best and thanks again

Love Simon & John X


Hello again,

Thank you for looking after Pugsley so well. We have no hesitation with him staying and recommending yourself to others.

I know my boy is in safe and caring hands.

Many thanks,



Hi both,

Thank you for working your magic so Fudge the latest addition to our family settled in and stopped chewing his feet.

The friendly professional service you gave is Top class.

Once again Thank you, Russ.


Spent the afternoon with Jackie and she worked on my both my terriers.  They thoroughly enjoyed their body massage with reiki.  They are both relaxed and happy.  You have a real talent.



Brandy was diagnosed with a tear in her knee, to much jumping about. A typical Jack Russell. My Vet suggested surgery. We tried to keep her as calm as possible for the next few weeks but she became anxious and hyper. Jackie was recommend by a friend and used a combination of massage and reiki twice a week. This calmed her down and the knee healed faster than anticipated. Surgery was not required which was a relief.

Thank you Jane and Brandy xxx


Just to let you know the Reiki seems to have worked.  He is doing his exercise now.  He doesn’t like to sit too long so we are going slowly with the sits.  We have walked a couple of times in between the showers and he can go further before needing to slow down a bit.

Phobia (Jack Russell) Rescue, 3 year old

Thanks Jackie for help with Phobia, you were so understanding of our
situation we can now sleep at night and she no longer lunges at our visitors
bearing teeth or door growling, when in her crate. Jackie talked about his
positive energy and how my thoughts became energy. I was then thinking I
could have the worlds first clairvoyant dog and Britain’s got talent here we

We have the opportunity now to have more house guests, as she is getting better every time a visitors arrives, as to the dog reading my thoughts
that then becomes energy. I believe it, I think don’t lunge girl, no teeth.

Jackie’s support is ongoing, we can phone her at any time for any little thing, if a home visit is necessary, she turns up calm, but full of energy and drive and is great value for money!

Thank you very much,
Amelia and Seb
