30th July 2009Phillip Gazzard dealt with:
I was pulling my hair out as I spoke to so many dog trainers and they all seemed to have different and mad ways of teaching a puppy. That was before I was lucky enough to find the Bark Busters website. We have only had our first session so far and already things have improved. Our puppy is almost toilet trained, he sleeps through the night, and he was even introduced to my two cats which went well. Phillip taught us so much about dogs in general, it was a great first session and I have already recommended Bark Busters to friends. Phillip even phoned me the following day to see how things were going. As long as owners are committed to do the homework and follow the program given by the therapist, then bark Busters are the best. In our eyes it was money well spent.
Vinnie is a 12 week old curiously natured Hungarian Viszla puppy. He has a wonderfully playful and confident personality. When I first arrived Vinnie was toileting randomly in the house, relentlessly attention seeking, harrassing the owners 2 cats and wouldn't settle down to the essential sleep that puppies need in order to grow into happy healthy adult dogs. Vinnie responded immediately to the kind, unique Bark Busters communication technique, and his owners breathed a big sigh of releif with smiles creeping into their faces as we finished up the session. They had been understandably distressed having sacrificed their own sleep for many days before the training. Vinnie is thoroughly enjoying his newly learned skills of how to please his owners in a calm submissive manner.
We have since completed his second obedience training session, preparing him for lead walking, sit and stay obedience and to resolve his inclination to jumping up. He is a work in progress and will continue to enjoy his training as we progress with his puppy management program. A big thanks to the commitment and devotion of his owners.

29th July 2009Tina Edwards dealt with:
We started to see a difference in the first hour. Tina was very informative on all aspects of ownig a dog. Really looking forward to the next session.
A young dog, found as a stray and now very nervous of the outside world. Her fear shows itself as aggression and extreme hyperactivity when on lead and a desire to escape and run away. Inside she improved rapidly, but outside will take time,patience and calm behaviour to help her to overcome her fears and trust her owner's decisions. She will be well worth the effort.
29th July 2009Phillip Gazzard dealt with:
We cannot recommend Phillip & Bark Busters highly enough. Phillip's firm but calm approach worked wonders with our Chocolate Labrador -Duke. He responded almost immediately and since the sessions he has continued to improve. We are thrilled with the results.
Duke is a wonderfully biddable, yet head strong and stubborn character. He has a big personality and loads of confidence. His main issues were excessive sniffing and foraging, pulling on the lead, jumping up and recall. Duke has been a joy to work with and a wonderful example of how a mischievous character can be completely transformed into a wonderfully obedient and entertaining dog with an adorable spirit. Well done to his devoted owners for their commitment to Duke and his training

Initial visit was very positive, but we have a few issues to sort out regarding Jaspers diet before more intense training can commence.

Richard was very friendly and to the point. It was fantastic watching him work with Max. The results he got in the session were great and gave me great confidence in myself.

27th July 2009Tina Edwards dealt with:
I felt Tina explained things very well. It was very benificial to have so much time doing practical training with her here. Our dog has responded very well and is already it's already making a difference.
A young girl, rather excitable especially with the young children in the home. She used to enjoy leaping up and grabbing arms in her mouth! We taught her that this behaviour was not acceptable and taught her to listen to and respect the humans in the household rather than treat them like young dogs like herself!
25th July 2009Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Linda was clear and provided training tips for all of the problems we had. She was very approachable and we look forward to seeing her again.
24th July 2009Manda Denny dealt with:
The therapist was EXCELLENT, a very confidnet and down-to-earth person. I don't think you could have anyone better. I'm very pleased with the training and her, thank you all.
This gentleman's dog was a private rehome, nervous and very aggressive to dogs as a self-defence mechanism. In very short order the client was showing his dog that he was there to help her, and the result was that they were able to walk happily around and with one of my dogs, and also cope with neighbourhood dogs passing just on the first appointment. This is why I love this job!
24th July 2009Tina Edwards dealt with:
The session was great and the therapist was fantastic. I could highly recomend her and Bark Busters to anyone.
This boy was barking and always wanted the "last word"! We tackled this first and had a great result, then moving on the the other areas that needed work, he walked well, but still needs more work for recall.
