Hi Jo, The way you taught me to stop him barking at me was amazing!!!!! He is responding so well. Life saver!!!! You've taught me so much. It's really made us bond so tightly. Thank you.
We would just like to say a huge thank you for all of the work you have done and continue to do with us, and Woody. I contacted you at quite a desperate time and I was honestly of the impression we would be unable to keep Woody because of his anxiety and aggression ‘issues’ and behaviour. You suggested such simple changes for us to implement and we cannot believe the difference it has made to his and our lives in such a short space of time. We’ve got our gorgeous boy back to the dog I knew he could always be. He is happy, calm, playful, confident and an absolute pleasure to be around. We’re now implementing his strategies with Luna, (the newest four-legged member of the household) and it’s working delightfully. Your explanations, empathy and understanding and the knowledge you have imparted on us have been great for us as a family and we really cannot thank you enough. We look forward to continuing to work with you in the future.
We cannot recommend you highly enough.

Lynda & Ciaron, Uckfield
I adopted a second rescue dog in Sept 2014, I called Jo for help with lead walking, after a one to one with both Ciaron and my husband , both humans learnt how to help Ciaron with lead walking. Ciaron and I have just completed an eight week course on back to basic training. Ciaron has become a confident, sociable dog. He is developing skills that make him a joy to be with.
HEATHER & BLUE, Lewes- I have to say, he’s a different dog from the one you met at Christmas, a generally reformed character. These days I can take his food away from him while he’s eating and he doesn't bat an eyelid. If he does try to get hold of something of ours, it only takes one word and he holds back. The other day Alan dropped a piece of chicken, complete with bones, on the kitchen floor. Needless to say, Blue got to it first, but dropped it as soon as Alan said “leave it” – a few months ago there would have been much snarling and we’d never have got it off him, at least not with fingers intact! Thanks Jo!
I just had to write straight away to say a BIG thank you for the training session this morning. It was unbelievable to see how Foxi tuned in and responded to your methods and Foxi and I had great fun. I would never have believed she could learn so quickly. We (especially me I guess!) are raring to go with our first session on our own; I just need to get my coordination on track! I now feel so optimistic that Foxi and I will be enjoying our time out together without any worries.

Jane & Merlin, Eastbourne. I decided to start with loose lead walking with Merlin. Every time we left the camp, I put him on that long leather lead and practised what you had taught us. By the 2nd day, one of my teammates asked what magic trick I had used! I will be passing your card on to a few people!
We were naïve to think that our Bouviers' behaviour would just suddenly improve - until the final straw and he went for another dog. My friend gave me Jo's number and it was the best thing I did! Her advice, insight and empathy has been invaluable . In fact, Jo changed my whole thinking and confidence which has consequently changed the dogs' behaviour. I realise that my training is on-going, however I would rather that than have to do anything drastic with our family pet !

Just a line to thank you most sincerely for arranging for us to have a visit from the behaviourist Jo Asquith this week. We adopted two dogs from the RSPCA rescue kennels at the end of March and one has had particular difficulties settling into our home due to her past experiences. Jo was very pleasant, positive and showed a keen interest in the dog’s and our problems, she then was most helpful and constructive with guidance on how we can progress the current situation forward thus giving us much hope. We felt that with Jo’s previous experience working for the RSPCA she is an ideal person to advise new owners of adopted dogs and we would recommend her most highly. With our thanks and best wishes
