25th May 2009Andy Waterhouse dealt with:
Andy was very friendly with all the dogs. It was amazing how quickly the dogs responded to the training session. He not only helped Alfie, but us the adults too.
24th May 2009Phillip Gazzard dealt with:
Phillip was clear and explained things in an academic manner that was perfect for the whole family. Karmalita listened immediately to him and it became clear that with time and training, the same response could be achieved with the family members. Initially hesitant that an old (8 yr old) dog couldn't learn new tricks, I am being convinced otherwise.
Karmalita is an adorable 8 year old female Rhodesian Ridgeback, blessed with a loving family who want only the best for her wellbeing. Karmalita's principle owner, a student veterinarian, researched Bark Busters and called upon the services of Phillip Gazzard to resolve problematic aggression towards other dogs. Other problems addressed include separation anxiety, excessive sniffing and scavenging, coprophragia (eating poo), attention seeking and recall. Karmailita is a work in progress and is responding well to the new training regime.

Janet was a lovely, reassuring trainer. Excellent session, walking problems were able to be addressed immediately, and we are making progress with aggression with other dogs.

23rd May 2009Jen Phillips dealt with:
Jen had a kind and gentle nature which Toby responded to immediately. Two hours was not enough to cover all Toby's problems but the basics were introduced and he responded well. Homework was set which we practice on a daily basis. Jen telephoned after one week which was nice and arranged another meeting.

Janet was very friendly and understanding. We were amazed how quickly Bex responded to the training methods. We are looking forward to learning more in the next session and ultimately to having a calmer, happier dog.

19th May 2009Phillip Gazzard dealt with:
"Once again thank you very much Phillip for helping me with Martina, after you left, I couldn't believe it so I went out, with both dogs, off lead, all the way around the block and Martina never once, stepped in front of me. I know I probably shouldn't be doing that and I promise to continue practicing the techniques a lot more before I do it again, but I just had to feel it was real."
Thank you very much. All I have ever wished for was to have a dog, that I could take for walks to the park, to the beach, take it everywhere with me, unfortunately Martina was nothing like that, always pulling on the lead and always aggressive towards other dogs, which made walks in the park quite frustrating. She just needed to see a dog at the distance to start running at them.
Thanks to the techniques taught to me, by Phillip, I can now walk her quite easily through the park and although I know she is a work in progress, I have every confidence to see it through and all thanks to Barkbusters.
If for some reason in the future I feel that I am losing my touch with Martina, I know I can always ring Barkbusters and book another session.
Thank You So Much
Martina is a delightfully biddable and loyal 2 year old Staffy Cross, with a slightly shy personality. Prior to Bark Busters, Martina had unwittingly assumed the role of minder of the pack and was presenting fear aggression towards other dogs and pulling excessively on the lead. She was completely misinterpreting her role in he pack manifesting itself in poor recall and dog aggression. Under the guidance of Bark Busters therapist Phillip Gazzard, Martina's devoted owners have rehabilitated Martina, and reclaimed the leadership role to resolve the issues and provided themselves and their two dogs Martina and Ika with a calm safe well behaved environment with which to live happily in. Well Done David and Sonia
