Gosia has been so amazing with our Malinois x GSD cross, Data. She has made a huge positive impact on our lives and the training we’ve implemented under her guidance means we enjoy our walks more. I love the workshops with various trainers she organises at her centre. And we’re continuing to go to her Communication and Obedience classes to hone our skills, have fun and learn.

Gosia has been amazing for for my 2 collie dogs.
Very knowledgeable and has always been available to help.
Both my pups love going to classes and have come on so well!
Especially the troublesome pup who before was so anxious around other dogs, we can now happily walk past other dogs!!

Gosia makes time to help, highly knowledgeable and classes are fun!

Maggie and I have learnt so much. We attended puppy classes and now attend out door obedience, scent detection ,one to one and visiting trainer workshops.

Classes are fun , Gosia is so dedicated ,approachable and knowledgeable . She truly loves dogs and they love her . 

I now think like a springer spaniel !

I cannot recommend Gosia enough, I started coming to her in 2021 with my traumatised, rescue Galgo Espanol, Josie, who was scared of people, could barely be touched and had extremely strong prey drive having been trained and used for hunting previously. Gosia’s patience and understand of Josie was incredible and now not only is she a cuddle bug with people, able to be off lead with reliable recall but we have obtained the Kennel Club Good Citizen Silver Award, and she is one of only 4 Galgos globally that have obtained a DMWYD Advanced Master Trick Dog title. None of this would have been possible without Gosia’s guidance, help and support. Josie is a dog who gets bored easily and she LOVES doing scent detection and Proprioception classes with Gosia too. Working with Gosia has hugely improved my relationship with my dog and made me a much better handler and owner.

I was seeking a solution for two of my dogs to help address their environmental reactiveness and help improve focus on their handler etc.   By way of recommendation, I met up with Gosia at Harburn Dog Academy and I have been so impressed with the facilities, training and Gosia herself.  The Academy’s facilities are ‘second to none’ with penned, high fences across multiple acres enabling me to work with, and alongside, other similarly reactive or nervous dogs in a perfectly safe environment.  Gosia can read and understand each dog’s behaviours then personally feedback advice and information on both a ‘one-to-one’ and class environment to help and train each dog (and handler!) to better cope with a range of environmental challenges.  In addition, and by way of example, for anyone with a dog facing issues amongst other animals, Gosia even has a small number of lambs to help with familiarisation and improve dog interaction and behaviour.  My two dogs had completely different challenges and the mix of superb facilities at Harburn Dog Academy and coupled with the skills and input from Gosia is genuinely making a positive difference.  Highly recommended.
