19th August 2016Alex Fraser dealt with:
The training with Alex was excellent. We've seen an improvement with Jake straight after the training. He is much more obedient and much more manageable when walking. Also the harness has been a great help. Although we still have a few problems with Jake we feel we are getting there thanks to the Alex
Jake is a very excitable young dog who used to jump and mouth a lot. He was pushing the boundaries with his Mum and Dad, and wasn't listening to them. By the end of the first session Jake was starting to respond well to the training and was listening to his parents. I can't wait to see how they are all doing next time we meet.

We have been taking the dogs out for short training walks, door control & have changed their diet to raw food as advised. Cassie our older dog is very good at listening to commands, door work etc., but is very anxious & pulls on lead work. She has not been walked by my husband as she suffers from separation anxiety from him. This has gradually improved over time but she still requires extra time to get her to walk to heel. Poppy is much better at walking to heal now but she needs extra work & time to reinforce commands. Tina to let us have another date for follow up visit.
Great to hear that good progress is being made on the foundation exercises, so it is now time to follow up and move the work forward.

We were not new to owning dogs, our last passed away after 14 wonderful years, but we were at our wits end when we contacted Barkbusters. Our two cockapoo pups had minds of their own, were hyperactive and we felt we were losing the battle. Would we ever have two well behaved dogs?
At our first meeting with Angela she had them eating out of her hand in no time!
She suggested a change of diet, which had an almost immediate calming effect,and with a few simple demonstrations we were able to begin addressing the other issues. After the first session we could finally see a light at the end of the tunnel. It has been hard work and we are not there yet, but we have persevered and are confident they will do us proud.
Angela was always available at the end of the phone and never judgemental of our efforts. I only wish we had contacted her earlier.
18th August 2016Tina Edwards dealt with:
Tina was amazing on her first introduction to the two terrors. She had a clear understanding of our own and the dogs' needs.
Firstly the dietary advice was brilliant, and we have been following everything we were told. Even down to the treats and such. We have seen such an improvement now in health and wellbeing.
Basic skills such as Door control were pretty much solved in the first meeting,as was who owns the sofa!
Instant results are amazing and have stuck.
It takes a lot of time and dedication, but with Tina backing us up we hope to show off tWo perfect pups on her next visit!
Two teenage brother Shih Tzu's who were chewing furniture, barking too much getting over excited to meet other dogs and had a little Separation Anxiety to add to the list! They were very cute though and responded immediately to their owners new communications! They had learned to "speak dog"!! We had a lovely afternoon showing and guiding them into their new role as happy relaxed members of the family.
15th August 2016Sharon Chapman dealt with:
Sharon was really great, very straight to the point and pointing out the fact that our dog is an attention seeker I couldn't believe it because since Sharon come I've noticed it myself. We are looking forward to continuing our training with her.
14th August 2016Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
Kevin was fantastic. My daughters and I enjoyed the lesson and were absolutely amazed at the rapid results achieved. Before the lesson, I didn't dare hope that it would work, let alone work so quickly, but it really did. The change in the dogs' behaviour has made all our lives much easier and less stressful and we can enjoy our dogs knowing they are well behaved and we have the tools to correct any unwanted behaviour. I have been raving about Kevin and the programme to our friends since.

More than happy with Lee's professionalism. Looking forward to his next visit.
11th August 2016Angela Young dealt with:
Just a quick update...... We started training with Angela from Bark busters in January after struggling with a huge and powerful rescue dog who was indifferent to us and very aggressive towards other dogs. We have always had dogs before and never known such behaviour, so we were getting to our wits end and I was losing confidence in taking her out on my own.
Angela has made several visits, each time she has seen huge progress, and each time given us more advice and training tips,and a few games to try which have been great fun, so we are constantly learning.
It has made such a difference, it's hard to believe all the little everyday training tricks have brought such amazing results.
We now have a dog who listens to us and is very receptive, she wants to please and be praised.
She isn't anywhere near as aggressive when we come across other dogs and can be guided away without pulling or fighting us. We are so proud of her and the difference Angela and the bark busters training have made to our dog and ultimately our lives!
If you are hesitating about seeking help with any problems you may have with your dog then please don't, Angela is so friendly and supportive and really knows what she is talking about......I feel that we are living proof!
10th August 2016Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
Jo had already started providing tips over email before our first session even began, putting us in a good position to continue with a training plan once Jo arrived. As owners of a very timid dog, we were given tips to make sure our dog continues his settling-in process, and we're set up well to continue his training in the future. Jo spent lots of time with us during our first session, observing and making suggestions in different scenarios. Since then, we've continued email contact with Jo and we're looking forward to our next visits.
8th August 2016Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Both my wife and I were very impressed with what we learned and how quickly/happily/easy our dog took to what he was being taught. We were also very impressed with the general way in which the meeting was conducted and advice that we were given and able to take away.
