10th February 2015Janet Goosen dealt with:
We called Bark Busters, after reading Janet's reviews, to help address separation anxiety. Janet quickly identified a number of other contributory issues, some that we were aware of and some that we weren't.
Janet is friendly, non-judgemental and she explains everything so that it makes sense.
Although I'm writing this after only a few weeks and we know some things will take time, we saw immediate improvements in response to the techniques. We are confident, happy and reassured that there is now guidance, support and light at the end of the tunnel.
It's like walking a different dog!

We have a lovely Cocker Spaniel but he had a few issues such as barking at people when they come to our house, pinching food off our plates, pulling on a lead and other behavioural problems. After the first session there have been massive improvements and its like we have a new dog. Alex is fantastic and I would recommend his service to anyone that has a dog with issues, however small.
After every first session I expect to see an improvement in the dogs behaviour and an improvement in how the dog responds to their owners. But sometimes even I'm a little amazed at how much the dog has improved after just 3 hours of working with them and this session was one of those times. I can't wait to go back and see them all in a few days time!!!

I was very pleased with my first training session. Sharon spent time with me discussing my two dogs and I never felt judged once. Since the first training session my two dogs have started listening to me abit more that they were but there is alot more work to be done and I am looking forward to my next training session.
2nd February 2015Lynn Prentice dealt with:
After many years of owning dogs (mainly rescue dogs) we decided to get ourselves a 9 week old black lab puppy. We were not at all prepared for how energetic and naughty puppies can be and completely misread his behaviour as aggressive rather than playful. After a couple of weeks of tearing our hair out and being constantly nipped and growled at my daughter found Lynn's number and my husband gave her a call. From the moment she arrived at the house she took control of Charlie and immediately said he was actually quite a timid puppy and not at all aggressive. She taught us methods of play and when to train him and importantly how to discipline him. Up until Lynn came I was not happy to be alone with Charlie and didn't know how to deal with him, the night after she came I spent the whole evening with Charlie playing with him and from that moment on everything changed. He is now 22 months old and is a lovely affectionate dog, he is great with other dogs although still incredibly naughty and loves nothing more than to 'steal' socks from the washing machine and run away with them! I would suggest that anyone experiencing problems with their dogs contact Lynn, she is absolutely brilliant!

Alex has been fabulous, really friendly and easy to talk to. The help with training has been nothing but positive. My dog olly had started to take leadership away from me and Alex has shown me how to take it back, really simple but effective training. Alex is still visiting but I feel much more positive and relaxed. Thank you Alex
Olly is a lovely dog, but during his time living with his owner he has slowly started to take charge of their home. His owner really took on board everything we discussed on our first session and the results have been great. Both owner and dog are much happier now that they know who is in charge in and out of the house. Keep up the good work

We just had our Bark Busters assessment today with Andy, and we couldn’t have been more impressed with him. It became clear from the moment he arrived that he “knew his stuff” and had a genuine interest in helping us, and we started to see results immediately. The techniques he taught us made a lot of sense, and he patiently walked us (literally) through each step until we felt confident in implementing them on our own. We also appreciated his holistic approach, which included looking at diet. His passion for this work really shines through, and he was also very generous with his time. All in all, we feel we are in very capable hands and off to a solid start with "our boys". We can’t recommend him highly enough.
1st February 2015Lee Hardy dealt with:
EXCELLENT, LEE WAS VERY PATIENCE AND CALM. HE EXPLAINED WHY ALFIE'S BEHAVIOUR OCCURRED, WHAT THE TRIGGER WAS AND SHOWED ME HOW TO ADDRESS IT AND PREVENT IT HAPPENING.
SUCH SIMPLE TECHNIQUES WORKED WONDERS. A MASSIVE THANK YOU. ALFIE IS MUCH CALMER NOW WHEN SOMEONE KNOCKS AT THE DOOR, EVEN IN SUCH A SHORT SPACE OF TIME.
1st February 2015Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lyn was brilliant, within the few hours that she was here, our troublesome 1 year old was visibly calmer and relaxed. The training techniques work very well and although still a lot of work ahead we can now definitely see light at the end of the tunnel. I would recommend Lyn and Bark busters to everyone having problems with their dog.
1st February 2015Alex Fraser dealt with:
We were struggling with our 3 month old border terrier puppy and Alex saved the day! He taught us so many techniques which helped us teach our puppy boundaries, how to walk well on the lead and to come back to us when off the lead. Alex has been an invaluable source of advice and support during the first year of having a dog. We would highly recommend him and Barkbusters.
Another puppy success, but like a number of puppies I have worked with - some things take longer to learn than others. This young dog very quickly learnt what behaviour was acceptable around her home and her walking to heal followed shortly. Her recall skills took a little longer, however her owners persevered and all their hard work certainly paid off. I'm very proud of all of them and delighted with the results.
