7th April 2014Tina Edwards dealt with:
There has been a marked improvement with Mabel and we continue to work together with Tina on Mabel's behaviour.
Mabel is a very pretty whippet who has calmed down tremendously since we started training. She was stealing, jumping up, getting agitated when left and had no recall! I am soon to visit again to work more on recall now that the foundations are in place.

Sharon was very good. She explained everything and wrote up a training program. we have seen some improvement, but it's early days. She seemed confident that we could sort out the problem

7th April 2014Tina Edwards dealt with:
Tina was a great help. She gave us some advice about his diet which seems to have improved his temperament. She gave us some useful tips on how improve his walking on the lead and how to stop him barking in the garden. She educated us on his behaviour and enabled us to understand why he does things. I would recommend her and wish we had found her sooner.
5th April 2014Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
Jo spent 3 hours with us and identified problems I hadn't spotted, particularly with my older dog. Everything she told, and showed, me was excellent and made so much sense - I felt so much more relaxed when she left and my two dogs are getting on so much better with the instruction she gave me.
This owner got her new dog from Serbia. Street dogs generally make wonderful pets, but can take time to settle down to living in a home and understand what is expected of them. When an owner gets a new dog it totally natural to assume that any problems occurring are caused by the new dog, but it is very often a combination. The existing dog has to make just as many adjustments as the new dog and is just as capable of misbehaving! Knowing what to do is half the battle and I have every confidence that this owner will do a brilliant job with both her lovely dogs.
4th April 2014Neil Price dealt with:
Dylan was a rescue dog and was our son and daughter in law's for 4 1/2 years. They now have a baby so we have taken over the care of Dylan. Dylan, although a lovely dog and very intelligent, barked at anything and everything and guarded anything he decided was his. The initial training worked well for a couple of weeks then began to slide. We asked for Neil to come round and he gave us a different method of training. Obviously, like people, dogs are all different and respond to different types of training. The training is working very well and Dylan is a much nicer dog to be with. He is far more relaxed and, generally, responds well to commands. We are now more in control and feeling good. We can see a light at the end of the tunnel thanks to Neil and Bark Busters.

So far we had three visits from Neil and Lucy is responding well,both to him and his training methods.We have great hopes that all her issues will get resolved and Neil is managing to keep our spirits up.
3rd April 2014Aaron Noble dealt with:
We had an unusual problem with our Biscon Frise puppy. He point blank refused to walk on his lead. He would just sit there no matter how hard we tugged on his lead. Julie came and by the night time I had taken him on his first walk on my own with him. I was really pleased. Sergio also suffers from very severe separation anxiety. On my second appointment Julie showed me how to help him with this anxiety. We have managed to leave him for an hour on his own. He was not shaking and crying like he had been originally. We are still working on the separation anxiety and he is getting better. Getting in touch with Barkbusters has been really worth it for us and Julie is still going to come back and help with other puppy training.
Sergio is doing really well, and now walks well on his lead. His owner and I will continue to work with him as he develops from puppy into adulthood.Very well done!

So far so good....
Neil was great with teddy and we just need to expand on it.
2nd April 2014Sharon Chapman dealt with:
Sharon was friendly and listened to all my concerns about daxter. She explained things thoroughly and in a way that was easy for me to understand. She was absolutely fantastic with daxter making him feel at ease. She showed me techniques to practice with daxter which I am pleased to say are starting to have a positive effect already. I am confident with continuous training using the techniques shown and with sharons support daxters problems can be resolved.
Daxter is a lovely Yorkshire Terrier who is a little nervous, but his owner now has some techniques to use to help him and her become more confident and able to deal with the situations that they find stressful
2nd April 2014Tina Edwards dealt with:
Very calm explanation of training methods.
Genuine care and dedication to the dogs and the task at hand of training me.
Still a work in progress but each day I'm gaining the pack leader position and my dogs are listening more to me instead of me to them.
A very experience owner who already had great control of her two large dogs, but had a problem with the female on lead as she had started barking and behaving badly when seeing other dogs. Off lead she greeted dogs in a friendly manner as did the large male. We worked on making sure the their owners gained more respect from the dogs with some simple work indoors initially and then outside on lead one at a time and towards the end of the session both dogs together. They responded extremely well and the feedback so far is very positive. I'm looking forward to seeing their progress at my next session!
