Ted is a rescue dog who was previously mistreated. He had a few issues- separation anxiety, chewing and nervousness around other dogs primarily. Estelle tackled these problems in a logical order and taught us how to deal with them. The difference in Ted was evident from day one and has continued to improve with consistent practice of the techniques. Ted is now much more settled and we feel more in control- so happy dog and happy owners ! Estelle herself explains things extremely well and I would not hesitate to recommend her, Thank you

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and accept most of Bryan's anxiety has been caused by me, so thank you Kim and I will definitely keep up the good work we achieved tonight with him.

Harley is a completely different dog since Kevin came to visit us and show us what needed to be corrected. Harley has gone from a 150 lb nightmare to absolute dream dog. Harley has become a pleasure to be around, I was very skeptical that we would be able to correct her negative behaviours but in one afternoon she has made a complete 180 and we are all very happy. My neighbors have also commented on what a difference they see in Harley.
Money well spent and would highly recommend your program and Kevin to anyone seeking guidance.
7th May 2012Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Hank came to us at 13 months old having been sacked by the Guide Dogs for being too inquisitive. He pulled aggressively on the lead and when let off the lead dosappeared for over an hour, and was also out of control when he saw kids playing with balls.
We went to dog obedience training and all they suggested was to put a halti on him and reward him with treats, which didn\'t work.
Since meeting Lynn Hank (and our)life has changed. After 2 visits (5.5 Hours)Hank now walks on the lead without pulling, is learning to resist chasing other peoples balls and is staying close whilst on a long lead. From the fist visit we noticed changes. We now feel increasingly confident that very soon Hank will be going for long walks over the fields off lead.
What can I say, Hank is a lovely Golden Retriever and now she understands what her owners want she is happy to oblige.

The confidence that you have given us, as a family, has been life changing.
The original trainer we went to totally destroyed our faith in Tiny, who is an absolutely fantastic dog.
It made us feel better too knowing that the neighbours were watching and asking questions knowing that we were being responsible.
We do use the Halti still, as she will still think about chasing a cat she might spot! Being so big it does help knowing that she isn't going to pull us over!
Sharon, thank you, from us all, and from the bottom of my heart. Having a professional doggy person tell us she's brilliant totally restored our faith in her.
She really does bring us so much happiness.
Tiny is a lovely dog but not quite so Tiny! She needed to learn some doggy manners which my own dog Rafa assisted with and her owners needed some confidence as they had been told that she was aggressive, when in fact there was no signs what so ever of this. The whole family got involved in the training and Tiny is now a well behaved member of the family and a credit to her owners

Daisy is responding well to the new techniques. It feels strange but seems to work.
3rd May 2012Estelle Jackson dealt with:
I was absolutely blown over after my first session. I have recently moved to the area with Tommy and Florence , my husband is in the forces and frequently away- then I find out I'm pregnant ! I had nightmares about how I will cope with two very bouncy dogs and a newborn. Estelle has shown me the light at the end of the tunnel. Estelle is an asset to Bark Busters, absolutely 100% recommend her to anyone
1st May 2012Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
I have 2 dogs of my own and I also foster dogs. Jo helped me with issues with the fosters aggression and dominance. She responded really well and I now know how to spot the behaviour changes. I also had problems with one of my dogs, Max. He woke me up every night to go to the toilet and if I didn\'t he would wee. By using the techniques and changes in the house within 2 nights I stopped being woken up. I can\'t tell you how much if meant to get a decent nights sleep after 4 years.
This lady is an experienced dog fosterer who took in an emergency foster dog after major surgery. This dog was terrified and tried to protect herself by trying to take charge in the house and rule her other 2 dogs. She has done an amazing job settling this foster dog in and has used to the techniques to give her own dog confidence. She is skilled with general dog training and just needed to know how to do the behavioural therapy part of it. This has been applied very successfully.
