21st November 2012Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn was fantastic in explaining exactly why Elsie was behaving the way she was, which makes it so much easier to implement the training advice she gave us. I am already seeing changes in Elsies behaviour, one week in, and hope that in time she becomes a much happier more contented dog.I would recommended Lynn to anyone who wanted to understand their dogs behaviour.
Very Happy customer!

We have been astounded by the change in our German Shepherd puppy, Blue, since starting the training with Jo. He used to spend a lot of time outdoors as we were not sure how to integrate him properly within our home, even though he was already house trained and always sleeps indoors. Jo identified that Blue was very anxious and worked on techniques to help him overcome this. Since her first visit, Blue spends most of his time indoors and we all feel so much more confident with him and him with us. Jo also advised us of what he should be eating and this change in diet has really benefitted him. Blue still has more training to do in terms of lead walking etc but we are confident now that we are on the right track. We always look forward to seeing Jo as her input and training has been invaluable. We just wish we had contacted her sooner.
This lovely family wanted their dog to be part of their family and were disappointed to find that Blue seemed to prefer to be outside. Blue had few social manners and simply wanted to do his own thing so it was a case of them all working hard to teach him what was acceptable manners and to actually listen to his owners. He has come on in leaps and bounds and now prefers to be inside with his owners rather than outside and has become a loving and obedient family pet. He is a true credit to his owners.

Very pleased, so far Keeper has responded well from day one and so have I. Repetition really is the name of the game for me, along with plenty of praise for Keeper
12th November 2012Estelle Jackson dealt with:
Very pleased with the first session. We thought our dog was very confident and very naughty but we now know she is very timid and confused. We were very close to giving up on her but now she is like a new dog.

10th November 2012Tina Edwards dealt with:
Excellent session. Friendly and informative. Really enjoyed the puppy training, especially learning how to communicate with Ellie better. Ellie responded very well and learnt not to bite everyones socks and feet in the morning. Simple but very effective. Thank you. Looking forward to training on the lead next.
Ellie, is a gorgeous cuddly Staffordshire Bull Terrier pup who was hyperactive and getting very naughty with the owners younger children. I showed her owner how to refocus Ellie and work with her for short lessons, not just waiting for her to be naughty. She also needed more sleep and we discussed her feeding regime. She has now stopped eating her poo and is much more laid back and willing to listen during her short lessons. She responded well to the lead training and recall practice.

Wow... What an impressive trainer. I had a problem dog and was pregnant with twins and panicked about how I could turn things around so that my dog would accept the babies and how I could correct/change her behaviour problems. Not only did the trainer help me turn my dog around but she also taught me how to be the owner/pack leader that I had always wanted to be. Her continued support has been soooooo helpful and has ensured that we don't regress. Jo has not only supported me and cassey at a very difficult/challenging time but has extended this support to my dog walker and family members.
I would recommend Jo and Bark Busters to all family and friends and have been that impressed that my friend has also enlisted the help from Bark Busters for her dogs. My dog is sooooo content and completely different from before Jo came.
I have recently had my twins and cassey has instantly accepted them as her pack members (as I religiously followed Jo's instructions). I had a small blip with cassey becoming protective of the babies but that was made worse as I had not recovered fully from the op, so Jo came for a follow up visit and now we're changing this behaviour and cassey seems happier for it. I will always be indebted to Jo for her expertise/compassion and continued support.
This owner is has done everything she can to ensure that her dog and new babies live happily together. She had previously invested time in the training of her dog and had a very good relationship with cassey, but cassey felt that she had to protect at all times and was acting like a guard dog rather than a family pet. Everyone has pitched in and Cassey is now able to accept visitors and relax around strangers and is able to show her true loving personality without over stepping the mark.

7th November 2012Kim Lummis dealt with:
Kim was very professional and extremely helpful. A change was noticed almost immediately with Beau. Kim gave/showed me a number of ways of distracting Beau and made me understand what was required of me to change Beau's behaviour. Would highly recommend Bark Busters - they do what they say on the tin!!!

Estelle was absolutely lovely and demonstrated lots of patience with our dog Rolo. She helped us understand her personality and why she does what she does. Hopefully on the way to a happier less grumpy Wire Haired Terrier

Excellent start to Erin`s Training, looking forward to the whole thing,
2nd November 2012Kim Lummis dealt with:
We're impressed by the quick gains made - Tushka seems calmer (happier?) since the training.
We're looking forward to further improving her behaviour with some additional training.
It has been very helpful to understand WHY Tushka was behaving in the way she did.
