6th March 2017Jacquie Callaby dealt with:
Early days but Hugo is unrecognisably better on the lead. He is also much better at not rushing out of doors. We still have some work to do on behaving when the doorbell rings but visitors have noticed a big improvement. He is still not good at meeting other dogs but the water spray does calm him down and we have had some non aggressive meetings with smaller dogs and I have great hopes of future improvements. We have changed his diet and he does enjoy the new food but it's obviously too soon to know if his behaviour has been affected.
5th March 2017Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
We were throughly impressed with our session with Kevin. He is extremely knowledgable and everything was explained fully to us. I didn't imagine the dogs would show changes so quickly it's amazing! Highly recommend for anyone who feels they need some direction and wants simple and easy achievable training. Was also lovely to meet Russell and Bruno. Thanks Kevin!
5th March 2017Gina Hinsley dealt with:
It was clear from the moment my father and I met Gina that she had a real passion for her job. She immediately put us at ease and then took us through her presentation, which was hugely informative and enlightening! She explained the ethos of Bark Busters and the tools and techniques she would be teaching us - for we quickly realised it was us that needed to be educated!!! She gave us easy to follow advice and we were putting this into practice with almost immediate effect. The two and a half hours she spent with us, and Tara, flew by and the almost instant results were really encouraging. I would highly recommend Bark Busters to anyone who wants to see changes in their dogs behaviour. Thank you Gina and we very much look forward to OUR next lesson.
When you understand your dogs needs, you can communicate to them in a way that they understand. It's a two way thing, they soon realise what it is that you want from them. Looking forward to continuing to work with you.
4th March 2017Alex Fraser dealt with:
Roxy is an 8 year old cross pommeranian. She is a beautiful dog with a big bark and that was the problem. Everytime people entered or left the house Roxy would bark her head off and it was annoying and embarassing as she would not do as she was told. Roxy also has a bit of food aggression so when she is eating no one can go near as she would growl and snap at you. Alex came to visit us in early January , he spent about 3 hours at our home wiith me and 2 of my daughters. He fascinated us with how quickly he was training Roxy to stop barking and how easy it was for us to implement the techniques for us to do this.
Alex visited a few weeks later to see how we were getting on and to offer any more supoort. He could see a vast improvement
Its a couple of months on now and Roxy is a different dog. We feel we have much more control over her barking. Obviously she barks because thats what dogs do to communicate but Roxy does not bark at everyone like she did when they are coming and going from our home.
We have control over her eating now too as she has learned to wait for us to allow her to go for the food.
I would definately recommend Alex Fraser to assist with any dog training problems that you have. He has helped us to control Roxys barking and eating issues. We are grateful for his professional incite.
Roxy is a lovely pampered Pomeranian who barked a lot when people walked past and especially when people entered the house. By the end of the first session, her family were able to stop her barking repetitively when I entered their home ad they had also built in some control manners around food. By the time I returned 2 to 3 weeks later there was a massive improvement in her behaviour - I am delighted!!

4th March 2017Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn was very straight to the point and explained each individual issue easily was very calm with myself and brilliant with Mia showed me step by step instructions on how to deal with Mia's issues still ongoing training to be done but all looks promising and some progress has been made I would definitely recommend Lynn to anyone who needs help .
3rd March 2017Estelle Jackson dealt with:
After a chat outlining Murphy's ,nature,routine ,meals etc Estelle started the training to teach Murphy to stop barging through doorways. Within seconds he got it ,same with me leaving the house and also vying for my attention. Slowly he learning it's not just upon one or two occasions but every occasion. He is learning he musn't bark and herd everyone that leaves. He's almost stopped barking at people and other dogs in the street except perhaps rowdy people but I'm ok with that. I have a very quiet dog but a far happier dog. He gets praise in abundance and I can leave him alone at home without him barking at me and distressing me and himself before I leave. I can't praise this training highly enough. It needs every day practice it's only been a week but he knows as soon as I utter his command. The best part is when he sees someone and is quiet and looks to me as if to ask ''Am I doing ok Mum?''

3rd March 2017Aaron Noble dealt with:
I would like to say a massive thank you to you.
After just our first session Tilly is a different dog and behaving. You explained things so clearly and took time to make sure we were comfortable. I took her for a walk myself this afternoon. We walked together she did not pull me which made it a pleasure to do. Lots of work to do but this is a very positive start.
Thank you again
You're very welcome! Tilly is a lovely dog, just young and like all young dogs she has her issues. I look forward to working with you all over the next year to iron out the creases!

3rd March 2017Lee Hardy dealt with:
Lee was very punctual and easy to talk to. He was very honest in telling us that due to her age and previous gun dog training she may never be totally reliable at recall when in full flight but gave us some excellent suggestions that may help to improve things. We are working with Tetley and have seen some improvement in her recall. He also gave us a suggestion on how to have more control when we walk her with our daughter's dog which has had spectacular results.
3rd March 2017Lee Hardy dealt with:
So sassy is a 6 year old miniature shiatsu with a massive attitude and naughty, barks at everyone and generally hard work, Lee came to see us on 28th Feb and oh my gosh what a difference in just a few days, his advice was amazing and she is actually doing really well I am very proud of her progress
You can teach an old dog new tricks!!
Thank you so much and looking forward to doing more.

1st March 2017Angela Young dealt with:
Before Angela visited us we felt after reading all the wonderful reviews that others had given her.we had made the right choice.
We had only had our rescue dog from Romania two week so training was going to be a little limited but Angela anticipated this and showed us a few small training moves to start with, and this is going very well.
We were also left plenty of literature which has really helped us.
It is obvious Angela loves her job and gives it 100% and knows a dogs mind inside out.
We definitely made the right choice with Angela and Bark Busters
