27th January 2014David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
It was our first session with David and to be honest we didn't think our head strong rescue dog 'Monty' had much chance of been helped. How wrong could we have been. After only 2 hrs we realised that we had been the main issue, totally confusing the poor little man with his position in the pack! We had instant positive albeit sulky results which have continued over the weekend to the extent whilst taking Monty for a walk yesterday 2 dogs off their leads approached Monty, which normally resulted in him wanting to play dominantly but he didn't they were the aggressors, with Monty looking at us for his protection. This action completely shocked us but has given us a positive outlook for the future of our happy little family. Really looking forward to our next session with David.
26th January 2014Tina Edwards dealt with:
Was really beneficial, 3hrs of very useful tips and training methods which seems to have already had an effect on the boys.
Two boys who unknown to their family, were barking and howling when left which resulted in an official letter from the Council and a very upset neighbour. We started working calmly on showing the boys that they have no need to worry about being on their own, but will be setting up to record to assess if there are any external triggers setting them off. Early days, but we will try various regime changes until we find the one that works.
26th January 2014Sharon Chapman dealt with:
Very pleased with initial three hour session. Sharon answered many of our questions and gave us lots of valuable advice and guidance for dealing with a boisterous puppy. Sharon helped us to understand some of the mistakes we had already made (puppy pads, retractable leads, etc) and gave us some guidance on how to better deal with these issues. The use of proper training leads for recall and close walking are proving invaluable - unfortunately the current weather conditions have limited the recall training but initial results are proving positive.
26th January 2014Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Amazed. After several months of a 4am wake up call every day from our Husky pup Willow, we couldn't believe that after the first visit it all stopped! The weeing in the house as well as the scatty barking has also stopped. Pixie (our Boxer pup) is taking a bit longer with her lead training but I'm sure we will get there soon enough. They have both put on weight due to the change of diet, and look much more healthy (as they were both under weight). Lynn explained everything really well and showed us how the pups see things. Would recommend Lynn to anyone having problems with their dogs.
26th January 2014Sharon Chapman dealt with:
Really useful - we have learned a lot about Teddi and why he is behaving as he is. Sharon gave us simple training activities to do which have really made an impact already.
25th January 2014Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn was amazing. At first we all were very dubious of how much Daisy could be helped due to extreme fear and need to protect but within the lesson Lynn was banging on the door with only one bark from her which is unheard of. She is peacefully laying down, listening to commands like we have always prayed she would do. Thank you so much for your time and expertise!
24th January 2014Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Was very practical and applicable advice. I could see immediate results in how Jessie was responding and could actually understand what I was/wasn't doing right in terms of how I was resounding to Jessie.
Lynn was very assertive and knowledgable and a really insightful teacher.
We made great first steps with an actionable training programme designed.
24th January 2014Isla Clarke dealt with:
I was starting to worry that my beautiful baby was somehow a problem case. She is only a pup and suffered with not staying in her fate and when she was there howling like a wolf. Within 1 hour of Isla's arrival she was quiet and behaving. Of course I have many weeks of imbedding the behaviour into my dog but the difference in just 3 hours is quite frankly remarkable.
Isla is lovely and easy to discuss issues with.
Would highly recommend

22nd January 2014David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
David gave us some very useful intial instructions that have helped enormously with her behaviour whilst walking on the lead. We are now starting to focus on heel walking and distance control after our second session with David, so far so good.
22nd January 2014Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
We were quite desperate for some help with our rescue Dobermann dog. He had some very bad habits like stealing absolutely everything, jumping up, constant attention-seeeking and very big separation anxiety, to the point that we weren't able to leave him alone at all. He also marked constantly and was quite unresponsive to any kind of command. We had a training session with Kevin and the result is quite dramatic! Kevin gave us an informative and interesting talk on why dogs behave as they do and how they work and then addressed all our concerns, one by one. Kevin showed us some very effective ways to control and lead our dog which we then practised as well. Our dog responded very well and the change is quite unbelievable. The session lasted about threee hours, and we were given a detailed individual plan of easy-to-follow training instructions which we are applying very successfdully. We can honestly say, thanks to Kevin's work our home is a much more relaxed and peaceful place . Our dog is much more relaxed and so, are we. We would certainly recommend a training session with Kevin if your dog is making your life difficult, the actions we were shown are so easy to apply, and theyn work immediately. We know that you don't get a perfectly well behaved dog in three hours but we know that our dog's behaviour has dramatically improved after Kevin's session and that it will get even better by keeping applying the bark busters method. Before the session, we were quite desperate and exhausted, now we feel very confident that our stressful dog will become a well-behaved friend.
