17th June 2015Alex Fraser dealt with:
After only 1 session with Alex, I am seeing a remarkable change in my dogs behaviour. My 8 month old rottie pup not only listens to me but is responding to the commands already. My walks with him are becoming less stressful, and my domineering puppy is letting ME take charge!
I am looking forward to my next session with Alex as the training is great for both my dog and myself. I would definitely recommend Bark Busters to anybody who is having problems with their dog. WE finally seem to be on the road to success. Thank you Alex
Although he is a very handsome young Rottweiler, he had really started to develop his minding role and was not happy when I first entered the house. He had also started to get a bit boisterous with his owner. By the end of the first session the improvement was amazing.
His owner has worked really hard with him and over future sessions he continued to improve.
He used to be a bit dog aggressive, but I was delighted to hear that following my last session, he is now walking past dogs calmly which is great news.

Hi Linda, just a quick line to let you know my little cavalier is responding really well from the new training programme, from the moment you drove out our drive she has been a different dog! After just one week her walking on the lead has improved immensely and the best thing of all is that we are having no more barking of excitement when we are getting ready and when we are out too she is quiet! It is amazing! So Linda a big thank you for all your help.

14th June 2015Angela Young dealt with:
After making enquires to numerous dog trainers, thank goodness I found Bark Busters, and Angela Young in particular. What a Gem!
Very professional, at the same time it was clear that she genuinely cared about my puppy. He's very active, yet anxious, which she spotted right away. In less than an hour she taught me the basics on how to handle him, which has already made a huge difference. It's clear that it was me that needed training, not my highly intelligent pup.
We discussed his diet, so for my pup's sake, and all the wasted tin food he refused to eat, I tried the diet plan Angela recommended. Thank goodness I did. My pup loves it and is thriving. He clears his dish every meal, so no more wasted food.
Angela stayed with us well over the appointment time, which I thought was wonderful of her - a professional that didn't " clock watch ".
I can't find praise enough for Angela, and would recommend her to anyone and everyone. Roll on her next visit.
Little Stan is the most adorable, intelligent and loving pup, but he was taking on too much responsibility and showing signs of stress and anxiety. After showing his lovely Mum how to provide him with the reassuring leadership that he needs and how to communicate with him in a way he understands, Stan started to relax before our eyes. I'm looking forward to seeing Stan and his Mum again soon. Thank you for calling Bark Busters Stan's Mum, I'm very happy to help and delighted that with your commitment to the training plan, that Stan is coming along well.
14th June 2015Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn was straight talking to the point and we could see a difference almost immediately. It was clear she would take the time needed and really wanted to help us. Lynn was reassuring that we would be able to train our dog and very positive. After the session both us and Sydney were exhausted! very happy, excited and motivated to do the homework/training we had been left. We have finished our first day of training and the improvement already is amazing. Thank you Lynn! .. We know we will be able to get to where we would like to be :)

9th June 2015Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
We saw a vast improvement in Buster within 30 minutes of Linda been there. Buster would bark for attention, people walking passed the house, knocking on the front door, basically, Buster just barked!!!! Linda taught us the 'magic' word, and with the aide of a water spray bottle Buster soon learnt it was unacceptable to bark whenever he felt like it. We still have a long way to go but we can see a light at the end of the tunnel. With the recommendation to change his diet, Buster is calmer and more affectionate. A massive 'thankyou' to Linda.
Buster is a beautiful dog but is 9 years old and had been barking and disturbing the neighbours for quite some time. His owner is deaf so couldn't hear him barking. With the help of her daughter in the training and watching Buster's body language he was soon listening and now knows what is required of him. I know with their determination and my continued support Buster will be a much happier dog.

8th June 2015Sharon Chapman dealt with:
On the initial visit Sharon took a comprehensive history of our time with Harvey. She gave us dietary advice which we took and changed Harvey's diet, which has had positive effects, he has lost weight, his coat is shining and healthy looking and we also feel the dietary change has had a calming effect on his behaviour.
All the behaviour training advice has been useful and we have persevered with it. Sharon is excellent at explaining things and takes time with you when it's needed.
8th June 2015Sharon Chapman dealt with:
Sharon has spent 3 sessions to date with myself and my Border Collie Jake and a total of almost 7 hours. Sharon has shown me how to get Jake to pay attention when out on walks and we are working currently on his pulling on the lead and over the last few weeks this has improved tremendously. He is much more focused on me when out on walks and his obedience has improved dramatically too. The reason I started with Barkbusters was due to Jake chasing and nipping cyclists and although this is still an issue, Sharon has shown me how using a long line I can still enjoy walking Jake in areas where cyclists may be. Sharon will be working with us on this particular problem once Jake is totally focused and paying attention to me. I used to dread taking him out for walks but now this has become enjoyable again thanks to Sharon. There is still a long way to go but with the Lifetime guarantee I am not worried if it takes a few more months as long as I keep seeing improvements which as long as I am following Sharon's techniques I am doing.
3rd June 2015Sharon Chapman dealt with:
Sharon came to us yesterday and we found her a very friendly lady who spoke a lot of sense. I am not sure now wether her job is to help us teach Kayla or to help Kayla teach us! We all learned a lot on our first lesson and promise to do our "homework".We look forward to seeing Sharon in a few weeks time and moving forward to having a happy, well balanced and well behaved dog in the future
Kayla is a stunning young German Shepherd whose owners just need some guidance in how to help her overcome her uncertainty in certain situations. Helping them understand why she reacts as she does, will enable them to give her the confidence she needs to grow into a well balanced adult dogs. We made a really good start yesterday and I am looking forward to working with them again soon.
