24th November 2016Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
At first I was dubious about spending so much money on dog training but as my dog, when fully grown, will be extremely big and strong I decided that proper training would be advisable.
Graham is an excellent trainer not only of my dog but also me. I needed to be taught how to interact with my dog so that she would accept my commands. Graham showed me how to do this and I am amazed at how quickly she responded.
I can honestly say that the whole experience has been a success and I now have an obedient dog inside the house and out.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Barkbusters and especially Graham to any dog owner.
23rd November 2016Lee Hardy dealt with:
My first session was encouraging and everything Lee recommended felt do-able and sensible. He was thorough and I was pleased he didn't rush our first session. I'm not sure I am making the progress I hoped I would but that is down to 'me'. I have every confidence that Lee will tell me where I might be going wrong at our next session.
22nd November 2016Alex Fraser dealt with:
The techniques Alex has shown me have drastically impacted on Bella's jealous and attention seeking behaviour. She has quickly responded to the 'Bah' correction method and the amount of barking to get attention has reduced significantly. Milo has been extremely responsive to sit and wait before taking a treat or his breakfast/dinner and we're working on the lead walking and he's taking to heel slowly but surely. The result of these changes between me/my partner and my boxer dogs is really positive. They still have their adorable and slightly bonkers personalities but there just feels to be a little more of a respectful balance. There is still some way to go, but with more work with Milo around other dogs and on lead behaviour I'm really confident we'll get there. Thank you very much.
Bella was one of the chattiest dogs for attention I had ever met, but I was delighted to see a different dog when I visited them all for their session. She was so much calmer when I met her for the second time I thought she was a different dog! Time now to focus on Milo who gets very excited when he sees another dog whilst out working. His walking to heel is going and he is far more focused on his Mum so I am confident we will get there. Looking forward to our next session.
21st November 2016Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
Jo was very friendly and patient with both me and Poppy she listened to all my concerns and implemented some very good techniques that are making our little dog a happier one and she has helped all the family understand how poppy is feeling and that she can not help feeling this way. We still have quite a bit of work to do in the future but with the main problem we have started to make some progress
21st November 2016Sharon Chapman dealt with:
I was very pleased with everything Sharon advised and ask me to do, simple but made sense, why use words a dog doesn't understand, when bahhh is effective, thanks for that.
Having been on the food website, I have ordered Aatu 80/20 which had a rating of 5 and a very good feedback, also ordered a 20ft horse lunge lead, could find bark busters training collar.
But have started putting training in place right now, so thanks very much and look forward to seeing you in 14 days, when I can show a new improved maya off

Neil Price is very friendly and easy to communicate with. Casper has taken to him as does as he asks. Training is simple and easy to follow
18th November 2016Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Linda taught us so much, we now have a wonderful well behaved dog that we can take anywhere without having to worry about his behaviour. Our dog Fergus is an absolute joy thanks to Linda even though he still has that boxer personality and we wouldn't want it any other way. Thank you Linda big kiss from Fergus x
Fergus is by far the most handsome Boxer I've met (sorry Oliver but he is)! And such a joy to work with. His owners listened and followed my instructions and now they have a well mannered Boxer which they are proud to take away on holiday with them. Thank you for entrusting his training to me.
Nafferton, East Riding of Yorkshire
17th November 2016Alex Fraser dealt with:
Our rescue greyhound had separation anxiety and had shredded the stair carpet, run through the TV, eaten 5 dog beds and a cage. She was so anxious that the day we rang bark busters I was in tears.
Within hours of Alex's first visit, Mabel was much more settled. He worked with us to train us. Everything he said made perfect sense and he gave us practical exercises to do that would help Mabel to know her place in the home and in turn increase her confidence.
3 weeks after his first visit she was out of her cage and we were able to leave her whilst we went to work with the free roam of three rooms. Her destructive behaviour has ceased and she is happy and settled.
The money we paid Bark Busters has been worth every penny; we would have paid out far more in repairing damage to our home. Worse still, we may have given up on Mabel.
We look forward to our continued support from Alex throughout the year and have every confidence that he will help us with recall and socialising her with other dogs.
Alex is calm, reassuring and gifted. A true dog whisperer! Thanks Alex.
Pete and Veronica
Separation Anxiety issues can often take a while to resolve, so I was delighted to hear that she is no longer anxious when she is left home alone. I've been back to see them again recently and she was like different dog. I'm not sure who was more chuffed - me or her owners.
16th November 2016Sharon Chapman dealt with:
The training was thorough and delivered at a good pace. Both myself and my dog 'Louie' gained a good understanding and knowledge of how to attain the standards expected in/around the house.
Sharon our trainer was excellent and her techniques, uniquely tailored to us.
Looking forward to the next lesson and already seeing positive results
Louie is a lovely young dog with lots of good points, with some guidance from me, they will soon have the perfect relationship
