6th August 2009Tracey Callaghan dealt with:
Session was excellent! It made a difference straight away. Our puppy is now led by us instead of him leading us. Would recommend to anyone. Trainer was brilliant (Tracey)
5th August 2009Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Thank you Bark Busters.
After one session Linda had our two German Shepherds walking to heel in a way I didn't think was possible!
People used to cross the street to avoid us - now they come over and say, 'What lovely dogs and so well behaved!'

As Zoe explained the way dogs view life the historic behaviour of my dogs fell into place. Results so far have been encouraging - early days yet but I am hopefull we'll have a socialable Buster before long.
2nd August 2009Phillip Gazzard dealt with:
The whole family were amazed at how quickly Mollie responded to Phillip's techniques. At only 6 months, Mollie was thriving to be "Top Dog" and only within a few hours the home is a much more calmer place! We have a long way to go yet but already am excited at seeing her amazing progress. Phillip is very dedicated and we are looking forward to working with him more. Thank you.
Mollie is a 5 month old female Border Collie who was adopted into a family with two other dogs: Jade who is an 8 year old German Shepherd bitch and Chico who is a 4 year old Jack Russell Terrier dog. Mollie's devoted owner was facing difficulties integrating Mollie into the pack, with rivalries escalating between the dogs. Mollie also had a tendency to chase cars required general obedience training for lead walking and jumping up. Having completed her first training session with behaviourist Phillip Gazzard, Mollie is already responding beautifully. The family are now enjoying a harmonious integration with a calm and content pack, and Mollie is enjoying her new found obedience as a means of pleasing her owner. Well done Mollie and Kayleigh.

1st August 2009Kim Lummis dealt with:
I was really pleased with the way the session went. I learnt a lot with information and advice given, and I also saw a change in Jak from the very first session.
When I continued with the training on my own, it was great to feel Jak was listening to me and responding in a positive way!
Kim is friendly and had patience and understanding which makes you feel that there is hope and that things can only get better!

1st August 2009Debbie McCulloch dealt with:
After only one session with Debbie my Springer Spaniel Tess is walking to heel and I have the tools and techniques I need to ensure she sees me as pack leader.
Debbie was friendly and explained everything very clearly and addressed the root of the cause of the issues I was having with Tess's behaviour.Money well spent I say and Im looking forward to her next visit.
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
