18th January 2017Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn came to our rescue very quickly when we experienced more problems than we expected when we adopted a rescue dog and tried to introduce her to our existing dog. Her starting point was that we couldnt have the two of them in the same room together without total chaos ensuing.
Lynn came out very promptly at the agreed time early evening and had the initial problem in hand within half an hour, they were in the same room happily without trying to attack each other. We had a lot of other pointers from Lynn to help us keep going.
She also checked in with us the following day and we discussed our progress the following week too. I can't thank her enough for how quickly and efficiently her approach and support has solved the intergration and behaviour problems we had with the two dogs. The advice we received and techniques help us maintain a happy home now.
I would have no problem at all recommending Lynn to anyone else who needs any behaviour advice for their dogs. In fact I have already done so on more than one occasion. Thanks again for your help Lynn.
17th January 2017Alex Fraser dealt with:
We brought Alex in to help us manage our labstaff's giddy behaviour. Almost immediately she responded to his methods and by the end of the session was walking nicely on the lead like I'd never seen her do before. I'm exceptionally happy that I sought out his help and would recommend him to anyone who has hit a wall in their dog's training.
I love working with Staffi's and I love their giddy nature, but sometimes they can be a bit too giddy and boy can they just no. Today's session went really well and she responded really quickly to the training methods used. I can't wait to catch up in a few weeks to progress her heel work in a busy dog area!

16th January 2017Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
The result of the training was absolutely amazing. My dog, Simba, who I thought was totally out of control and beyond training, responded with alacrity and showed no sign of resentment at having his "cock of the walk" position removed. On the contrary, as I remarked to the Bark Busters trainer, Simba fell asleep on return to the house and seemed more relaxed than I'd ever seen him. I now understand that he was relieved to have the "leader of the , pack" burden taken away from him and he could now let me, "the human" take the responsibility for our wellbeing. I'm very surprised that Bark Busters is such a commercial secret.

Very interesting and helpful so far. Thank you.
15th January 2017Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
The training has been phenomenal. We were really struggling with our four dogs but in particular the two youngest, Dobby and Winifred. Jo arrived to chaos, the dogs constantly rubbed each other up the wrong way, walking was simply embarrassing and we needed some serious help.
Jo didn't at any point make up feel judged. She gave us really good advice and techniques for managing the pack. Dobby now goes out for walks and dare I say it is actually an enjoyable experience. A simple addition of a tee-shirt to bring a sense of security has worked wonders A simple addition of a tee-shirt to bring a sense of security has worked wonders. It has helped Dobby be much less jumpy and reactive to people and dogs. The main changes have come from changing both dogs' diet. Dobby has raw food and Winnie has a good quality hypoallergenic, grain free dry food. I thoroughly recommend this as a standard change to make. We are now beginning to enjoy our dogs.
15th January 2017Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Linda is a lovely lady, friendly, explained things clearly. She encouraged us with advice and little tips she uses with her own dog and when she left we felt confident and more relieved that we made the right decision to get some help. We covered our pet on the lifetime cover and Linda is going to be visiting us quite often in the future until we get our Labrador Eddie back on the right track again. Linda assured us we would get the help we need for as long as we need it.
I have already made a second visit to Eddie taking my own dog to help with Eddie's fear of walking out of his cul de sac since a loud firework frightened him. We managed a lovely long walk with Eddie following us with his owners for over a mile. Fairy steps are needed until Eddie feels more confident in this area. It's going to take time and patience.

Neil is great and gives us loads of advice. Looking forward to continuing to work with him.
12th January 2017Tina Edwards dealt with:
Tina was able to explain things very simply. She has suggested a raw food diet which makes sense as we all act differently with too many additives. I am struggling to get him eating just raw food, I have therefore tried to gradually make the changeover.
Bradley was an anxious but loveable Jack Russell and I really can see an improvement in him. He is less anxious, better on the lead (almost angelic) having been a real puller and this wasnt even part of what we practiced its just a consequence of being more in control. We are practicing leaving without him barking and he is half way there. He will let most go without a bark but the last one out is still a problem. We will work on this.
We have to improve strangers arriving at the house - this is more a weekend thing but its on our homework list.
Overall I know he is getting much less stressed and is returning more to his puppy chilled out position which I am thrilled with.
Such a sweet boy, but really quite anxious and worried about his big job of being in charge of a number of humans and their visitors! He is very clever and understood very quickly the new way his owners were communicating with him. It's great that he's stopped pulling and consistent daily work will help to make sure he becomes the dog he really should be.
