26th March 2015Sharon Chapman dealt with:
We were extremely happy with the work we did with Sharon. She is a very friendly lady and we got on well. I called Sharon last April with concerns over my chocolate labrador Rolo barking aggressively whilst on the lead at other dogs. Rolo is such a softy with people & dogs off lead but turned into another dog when on the lead walking. Sharon explained to us that if we were anxious then Rolo would pick up on that and it would not help the situation Over the months she trained" US "to deal with the situation and now he is so much better. We now know what to do if we approach another dog closely. I am so glad we contacted Barkbusters and Sharon as I was getting to the stage when I didn't want to take him out. I now feel more confident when walking him on the lead and so does Rolo. Thanks so much Sharon.

I contacted Sharon as our rescue Patterjack was being aggressive towards other dogs, plus he and our Westiepoo rescue were difficult to manage on the lead. Sharon taught me the wonderful techniques I needed to control their behaviour; but please remember you definitely get out what you put in, so it is up to YOU and well worth all the effort YOU put in after the training sessions. I can now walk both dogs on leads without being "dragged" around the streets! Our Patterjack will never be an angel, but at least we can go out knowing how to manage him and the other dog owners out there who haven't got the sense they were born with!!! Our neighbours have all commented on what a wonderful job Sharon has done with the dogs and I recommend her services to fellow owners on a regular basis. Barkbusters is well worth the initial outlay as the service is excellent value for money. Thank you Sharon, and a big sloppy kiss from Tom & Gerri!

I was amazed at how quickly Roxy changed. Kevin our therapist was friendly and it felt as though we had known him a long time. There was loads of encouragement from him. I would highly recommend Kevin.

I thought Eddie was beyond help! My lovely, friendly and excitable dog had a few problems. He destroyed all of our post, barked at every sound he heard outside, pulled on his lead and kept running past me when I was going up the stairs. As soon as Angela taught me how to communicate with him in a way he understands, he responded. He is a lot calmer already, he is not barking as much at passers by and he waits at the bottom of the stairs until I call him up. We are working on him not attacking the post, he's getting better each day. Thank you Angela.
25th March 2015Alex Fraser dealt with:
Alex set to work straight away & we were delighted that we had made progress with Toby even within the first hour. We liked the fact that Alex role modelled everything for us first then gave us feedback & corrected us as necessary when we tried the techniques.
Alex stayed with us for several hours so really got the measure of Toby and our weak spots! We achieved far more with Toby than we expected from the first visit.
Two weeks later, we have had real success with much of what Alex taught us but are ready for a second visit to reinforce where we need to make further progress.
I went back to visit Toby and his family earlier this week and I couldn't believe the difference in his behaviour. He was SOOO much calmer - I was delighted!! I always expect to see an improvement, but sometimes even I am blown away by he difference in a dogs behaviour, and this was one of those dogs. There is still some work to be done in some areas, but I am confident they will get there, now that I have seen how well he is doing. Keep up the good work.
25th March 2015Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
I have to say that the service I recieved from Kevin was nothing short of brilliant. I did not realise that he could get the behaviour of my 8 year old staffy to change so dramatically in such a short time. After sticking to the training regime for the first week or so Keith has become a totally different dog and is a lot more relaxed and happy as a result.
25th March 2015Aaron Noble dealt with:
I didn't think anyone could get through to my Dalmatian Harvey, he is 9 now and set in his ways. Julie made an impact from the moment she came in, the barking just improved by 90% in the 3 hrs she was with us. The tools we learnt are excellent for him and us. I'm so glad we made this desicion.
It was lovely to meet Joanne, Richard, Harvey and Blossom. Harvey had some very strong views on his roles within the household, and these were stressing him and the rest of his family. He very quickly learnt that he could hand these duties over to his humans and just be a dog. We are hopeful that he will become a much more relaxed dog both in the house and out on his lead. More work to do but a very positive start! Well done.
24th March 2015Angela Young dealt with:
Angela came in and identified areas where we needed to work on with our dogs so we could be the pack leaders we need to be. Angela also identified where Rogue was passively training me and gave me easy instructions for me to regain control. Extremely helpful and highly recommended.
21st March 2015Janet Goosen dealt with:
When Janet arrived we were looking for a miracle! We'd fostered a second dog that we hoped could be a companion for our troubled 3-legged Lurcher. As soon as they met they appeared to hate each other. It was awful.
Janet helped us to understand that we needed to change our behaviour so that the 2 dogs could follow our lead and not be scared of each other.
Some techniques seemed irrelevant initially but soon everything began to make sense and things started to improve.
Today after 4 or 5 visits and lots of work, the 2 dogs were let off their leads for the first time together. And to our utter amazement, they got in the same bed together. Wow...
Janet IS A MIRACLE WORKER. We can't recommend her highly enough. Knowing that she'll be there if and when we need her is brilliant.

Bridget's recall improved 100% after we trained her using the recommended techniques and we are now able to enjoy walking her off the lead. Her indoor barking and over enthusiastic welcome have significantly improved.
