17th March 2017Jacquie Callaby dealt with:
Jacquie was brilliant, so helpful, knowledgeable, and experienced. She didn't make me feel silly for not getting things right or for having been trained by my dog! She made me feel confident and looking forward to doing all of the exercises and homework.

16th March 2017Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Linda was very friendly and helpful. She was calm and confident and taught us how to respond more effectively to Barney. We have been practising what we were told and have seen a big difference in some of his behaviours. We will need some more lessons and some more advice, but thank you so far.

16th March 2017Angela Young dealt with:
When we brought Bailey home at 12 weeks Archie was 3. Things were fine intially but as time went on Bailey began to be aggressive towards Archie. Even after neutering Bailey's aggression remained and before we contacted Angela they had fought badly on 4-5 occasions. Seeing your dogs fight is horrible and it had a massive negative impact on the whole family. Archie was very stressed and so was Bailey. We were coming to the awful consideration of possibly rehousing Bailey, however we decided to try Bark Busters and Angela came to see us for her initial 4-5 hour session back in November. The training was very simple but we all had to stick to it and we had made some adjustments prior to review 5 weeks later. We knew that Christmas was going to be difficult due to the changes in the house with the tree etc. which can be stressful for the dogs and I was very despondent at times as the fighting continued. Angela was very supportive and visited us on many occassions and took our 'out of hours' calls and e-mails and tried to help us with the situations we were describing to her. Along with the training we made changes to their food, bedding, routines and with keeping up with Passive Leadership we are now into the second month of no fighting!!. Both boys are calmer and their previous skin conditions (they are terriers) has cleared up. The house is calmer and so are we. The boys get on very well now and have gone back to play fighting and sharing the living room rug. We still have moments as we must remember that they are aminals but we know how to react to the situation now to prevent it escalating. We cannot thank Angela enough for her help and patience as it was very hard not to throw in the towel at times but the reward of seeing my boys playing together is worth the effort for what has only been a few months.
Thanks again Angela x

We had a great session on Tuesday. I never thought we would see Tilly socialising with other dogs. By the end of our session Tilly was walking side by side with Snoop, Angela's dog. I was amazed and extremely grateful. Gives me real hope that Tilly will get over her fear of other dogs
15th March 2017Isla Clarke dealt with:
Isla has helped me greatly so far she was very attentive to our concerns and listened intently to our needs. She was so friendly to both us and Mabel and we totally felt at ease with her. It's only been a week and the training sessions she showed us are working already (Mabel is not the worse drunk at the party ) over the park already.
Thank you Isla looking forward to next session.

15th March 2017Tina Edwards dealt with:
charlie used to pull on the lead ,react badly when seeing other dogs or cats.she used to charge past us when going up or down stairs, jump up at people that came to the house. but since just one day of training and knowing a certain word and sound she no longer does these things. after being advised to change her diet she is now a lot calmer.we would like to thank tina for her help and advice and would recommend bark busters to anyone who has trouble with their pets
Charlie is such a willing girl, so once she understood and was shown and guided into a new way of working with her owner, she was much happier and more relaxed. She loved all the praise and cuddles when she understood, which made learning so much easier for her. She's a lucky girl to have such a lovely committed owner.
14th March 2017Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lyn took time to listen to our problems and discussed all our issues at length. She understood and gave us many ideas on how to improve Elsies behaviour,including researching her diet, in fact from the moment she met Elsie things have improved.
It has only been one week since Lyns visit and I can now take Elsie out with a lot more confidence, with just a collar and lead, not with a harness and halti as it used to be. Also Lyn showed me that Elsies behaviour in the house could be improved, this I had not realised was a problem, but with a few small adjustments this has greatly improved too.
I have noted that Elsie is now more content and I believe happier.
I know there is still a long way to go, but I am confident that with Lyns help, I shall soon have a very well trained dog that I can be proud of.
14th March 2017Sharon Chapman dealt with:
Sharon was very insightful regarding the reasoning behind our pugs behaviours, the training techniques surprised us all with the instant response we had from both the dogs, we have been following her instructions and it already feels like there had been a huge improvement with their behaviour this was mostly due to the barriers we agreed to set, it turns out that it was us that needed the most training and not the dogs.
I would highly recommend the service as it had vastly improved our knowledge not only on why we had the issues to begin with but also on their food intake.
