5th September 2016Alex Fraser dealt with:
We have a very giddy Springer Spaniel pup who, within 3 hours of the first visit was lying calmly at Alex's feet, looking up adoringly at him! Hugo responded really well to the passive leadership techniques and Alex's natural affinity with dogs - it's just Hugo's owners who needed a refresher a few weeks later! We're back on track now and the new harness helps to reduce the pulling & keeps my arms in their sockets! As Hugo is still very young, I'm sure there will be many more challenges ahead however, I have every faith that Alex and the Bark Busters training techniques will help us to deal with them effectively.
My training is really about training the owner who in turn can train their dog or dogs. Hugo is a typical young Springer Spaniel who can be extremely giddy. He responded really well on the first session, however as his owner mentioned, it is often them that need further training as Hugo grows up. It won't be long before he becomes a teenager! I've seen him a couple of times and I can't wait to see how he is doing next time we meet.

5th September 2016Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn visited us on Monday evening, she could immediately see where a lot of the problems were. Lynn gave us lots of tips and advice that could help with our specific problems, i.e diet, lead work,separation anxiety and barking. Lynn then put us through our paces in training us how to train our dogs, it's going to be a long process but it will be worth it in the end, for both us and Ziggy and Star. Thanks Lynn
4th September 2016Tina Edwards dealt with:
It was amazing, we didn't know we had been doing everything completely wrong, we learnt such a lot, and so did Billion, he behaved so well instinctively with Tina, who we all thought was so nice, calm, and knowledgeable.
It wasn't that they were doing things "wrong"; with a dog of a different personality I'm sure everything would have been fine, but a clever boy like Billion was taking full advantage of them all! We got all the basics in place including teaching him how to walk on a loose lead, our next steps will be to teach him how to approach other dogs without rushing and barking at them!

3rd September 2016Lee Hardy dealt with:
We are one week in and so far we are very impressed with the results and delighted to say that Olly has responded incredibly quickly to the training, walking him on the lead is no longer a stressful experience and we can even walk past the house with the cats and any dog on a lead without any yelping
3rd September 2016Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
Very good within five minutes of graham being here saw a different dog
2nd September 2016Tina Edwards dealt with:
We have had two visits from Tina now and must say we are over the moon with Ringo's progress. We still have a long way to go but feel confident we can get there with Tina's help. Always friendly and easily contacted and Ringo has responded so well. We are so pleased and can't wait to carry on with it. We finally see a light! We have struggled for 2 years with a gorgeous French bulldog with a bad attitude! Thank you Tina! :)
The only reason Ringo has made such good progress is that his owners are totally committed to putting in the work that he so desperately needs! He has a strong "bulldog" personality and was ignoring his owners, charging and biting at visitor's feet and trying to attack any dog he saw! After the first visit when I showed and coached his owners with some basics, they started work! They changed his food which was making his natural behaviour worse with all the cereals, carbs and sugars which helped him to concentrate. Yesterdays session was about teaching him to walk on lead without pulling and to focus on his owners which he started to do very quickly. They will update me in a few weeks time when we will begin to tackle his dog aggression from a much better base!
31st August 2016Manda Denny dealt with:
I found it interesting, clear and straightforward.
My dog is already responding to my commands.
I still have away to go but I am confident for the future.
A wonderfully responsive dog with a very committed owner. It was lovely the last time we met to see her playing so well at the park without having dragged her mom there first :)

31st August 2016David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
Anthony was thorough and tuned in quickly to our issues and gave good clear instructions and explanations. Bess has responded very well to the session and to the daily practice we have been doing with her. We've seen real results after just a few days and fully expect that things will continue to improve with each new skill mastered. Other dog owners have commented on the difference in her behaviour and manners and are envious of the results already achieved.
30th August 2016Angela Young dealt with:
Angela was very nice and just confirmed what I was thinking was wrong with Ellie but didn't know how to fix. Ellie had anxiety problems. We went through a few things then she met Ellie. I showed Angela her reaction to a couple of household items and within an hour Ellie showed a distinct change in behaviour towards them, with a few treats thrown in! I was amazed at the difference. I'm just sorry I never found her before and I'm looking forward to seeing Ellie the happier and more calmer dog I know she is.
