23rd March 2012Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
We adopted Jasper at 5 weeks old. He was a problem puppy as we got him from irresponsible dog owners. Since Jo's first visit we have seen a remarkable difference in both dogs. She showed us how to correct all problems in simple, easy working ways! We really enjoyed the first session and learnt a lot. We would thoroughly recommend Jo to any dog owner in need!
I was called in to see Jasper, an American Bulldog cross who was occasionally aggressive with people and to the other Labrador dog in the family. He was very difficult to handle as when stressed he would constantly spin in circles. He showed classic signs of being separated too early from his mother and his owners had tried everything to deal with his problems with limited success. The strong bond with his family has meant that he and their other dog have responded fantastically well to training and he is already a very different dog. His family have made major progress in resolving his problems and given the level of commitment shown do far, I have no hesitation in saying that I expect them to be able to resolve all of his very serious problems.
22nd March 2012Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
Never thought that Bella would be able to walk among crowded streets walking so well on the lead. To go out with Bella on a lead and not be dragged along has given me confidence. Can never thank Jo enough. She has given myself and Bella a whole new life.
This lady's dog had multiple health issues. There has been operation after operation with prolonged crate rest after to get her well again. Her health issues meant she could not be trained as her owner would have liked and she would lunge at cars, bikes and people and generally get very distressed when walking. The work that has been done inside the house to get Bella to listen to her owner has paid off admirably outside the home with a calm and happy dog. Bella has done her owner proud.
21st March 2012Lorna MacKay dealt with:
Lorna took the time to understand each family members relationship with our dog, particularly my youngest daughter's She confidently and expertly explained and demonstrated the techniques over the three hours. As 'first dog owners' this helped us understand.
20th March 2012Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Deefer has responded very well to the 'pillow' and the bah command. He is much calmer since training began and people that call say how much better he is. The Canny collar has been wonderful for walking and he is now a pleasure to take out.
We still have a long way to go but seem to be on the right track - not bad for only eight months old. Thank you Linda.
20th March 2012Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
I found Jo very helpful. She understood my worries and show me how to follow up her training of Ruby and told me she is always available if I should have any more problems with Ruby.
Ruby is a lovely Labrador puppy with a very boisterous nature. Her owner was concerned that Ruby would be too distracted at Puppy Classes and wanted home training. Her owner is an experienced Labrador owner and recognised that Ruby was a little more wilful than many Labrador puppies. As she is calm and confident in herself, it was a case of showing her how to deal with Ruby's bad behaviour. Ruby responded to really well and was keen to listen to her owner and do what was asked of her.
20th March 2012Tina Edwards dealt with:
Having tried 2 other trainers/behaviourists for Addy's fear/anxiety, without success, I was amazed how qauickly Addy and Lilly responded to the techniques. I am sure with daily practice and support from Tina we will have happy healthy relaxed dogs. Thank you so much.
I met these dogs earlier in March. Both are rescues with very different characters so needed the training to be tailored to each of them accordingly. The owners are very experienced dog owners and understood and embraced the basis of the training immediately and we had great results on the day. I have heard from them since and their daily work is really paying off dividends!

Wow...I have a different dog. She used to urinate when spoken to. This is much better. She pulled terribly on the lead, again this was amazing to see the change in her. I would recommend Bark Busters and do already at the Vet Surgery I work for. Thank you so much.
This Veterinary Nurse hand reared her puppy from 1 day old. She has done a magnificent job with her,but struggled to deal with her young dogs fear of any visitors,even when her dog knew them. Her dog also got so excited when she went for a walk she literally pulled her over the road to the park and off her feet at times. The change is her dog is a joy to see.
18th March 2012Kim Lummis dealt with:
We found our experience with Kim very informative and helpful. Everything was explained and we were not made to feel awkward or that we had made "mistakes" with Zeus. It gave us the confidence to move forward, so that Zeus becomes a happier and more disciplined member of our family. We still have more issues to tackle with Zeus, but I am sure Kim will guide us successfully in the near future.

18th March 2012Zoe White dealt with:
Zoe was very good explaining everything to us and making sure we understood. We have been amazed at how fast Minnie reacted to Bah and the dog training we were given. Have bought dog food that we hope will help and raw meaty bones. We now hope we can have the same reaction to other dogs but really pleased with the quick result.
18th March 2012Andy Waterhouse dealt with:
Andy is a friendly chap who most certainly put us at our ease with our new puppy. We have never had a dog before so we welcomed all of his suggestions and advice. He truly is a dog whisperer.
Andy has been extremely professional throughout our sessions. We have already recommended him. Thank you.
