5th March 2015Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
We were impressed with the professional, experienced approach from Kevin McDonnell. We liked the fact that the dog was looked at as an individual and that no treats or punishments were recommended in helping correct his behaviour, instead the techniques used were acceptable and effective. We have already noted an improvement in Lincoln's behaviour.
5th March 2015Alex Fraser dealt with:
We have had Alex visit us on a number of occasions now to teach and give us better tips on how to walk our Staffie Diesel and also how to calm him down when we come across other dogs who are aggresive. He has also taught us how to correct Diesel when in the home from excessive barking when hearing noises or the door bell. We would recommend Alex as a great trainer who is calm and very informative and spends time explaining procedures. It is like having our very own Ceaser Milan in our home. Thanks again Alex.
Diesel is a lovely natured Staffie who loves people. Her owners used another Bark Busters trainer (who used to cover my areas) many years ago and took out life time guarantee. They started to have some issues with him barking in the garden and walking him past other dogs. I visited them some weeks back and helped them with both issues. It was clear to see that their passive leadership wasn't as good as it could be and as a result Diesel wasn't not feeling as secure as he could, especially outside. I returned yesterday to focus on his walking and we encountered a number of dogs. He barely reacted, even when we passed 2 staffies in a front garden who where barking quite aggressively. Although I don't think they will need me to go back again, I would like to go back in a month or so to se how Diesel is doing.

2nd March 2015Neil Price dealt with:
It was worth every penny paid. We learned how to control and train our dog. Even though she is just a small Morkey she managed to cause a lot of headache with never ending barking. Things get worse when baby arrived - she was barking all the time when he cried and tried to jump on person holding the baby. Se would not walk on lead without pulling.
We are still working on pulling and coming back when called, as well as barking at postman but it all seems much more under control.
Thanks to Neil we have a happy family again, I would never forgive myself if we had to give the dog away.
2nd March 2015Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
I was absolutely amazed with Kevin's traning techniques. It was a lovely experience seeing my dogs learn so quickly and calmly . I would recommend bark busters to people in the future & I was very happy with Kevin McDonnell. Just after one day my dogs are doing what I want them to do and that is making my life so much easier. I'm thrilled .. It was worth every penny!
2nd March 2015Kim Lummis dealt with:
I rescued Ronnie and within a few weeks he was showing signs of aggression towards men and my other dog. Kim came and retrained us all and truly changed our lives. I took everything I was told on board including changing their food, and they responded amazingly and I now have two calm, settled, happy dogs who love life and get on brilliantly. Ronnie loves men now as well. After owning Boxers for over thirty years I thought I had encountered every situation and never thought I would have to call in a behaviourist. Kim was calm, helpful, non-judgemental, and got to the crux of the problems immediately. I would recommend Kim to anyone, her services are life changing and words aren't enough to describe what she has done for us.

1st March 2015Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
Kevin arrived on time, his training was very clear and gave me confidence to use the techniques he told us about. I love my dog but he was a real handful. Kevin has made us realise we were causing a lot of the problems and now we feel confident to manage the behaviours as they arise.
27th February 2015Neil Price dealt with:
Excellent advice - even though I have had dogs in the past you forget about puppy training. The advice was very useful, some things I had forgotten and other advice I had not known and found to be extremely useful. I Would highly recommend Neil

27th February 2015Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
I am so pleased I contacted Bark Busters, our trainer Linda was very patient and understanding going through all training techniques and even helped with food and nutrition. After spending the morning with Linda, Tess was calmer and was reacting very positively to the training, that night it was like having a new dog she was calm and settled. We have a long way to go but I feel more positive and empowered I am the leader in our house now.
27th February 2015Sharon Chapman dealt with:
After the initial session with Sharon I learned so much (It is really owner training!). Sharon is extremely knowledgeable and imparts her knowledge in a very enjoyable and practical way. Jake is already responding to the training methods Sharon showed us in the first session only 2 days ago. He seems much calmer already and I am enjoying taking him out walking again. I am looking forward to further sessions with Sharon when we can start working on Jakes other issues which I have no doubt if I follow Sharon's methods will be sorted in time.
25th February 2015Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
Kevin was very approachable and very friendly. He spent a lot of time explaining the reason for our dog's behaviour and we were able to go through all of the habits that were troubling us. His methods were easy to understand but very effective and Charlie was already showing signs of improvements despite his stubborn nature. With more practice we hope to see a continued improvement. Highly recommended and hopefully will change our life!!
