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?''

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.

You can teach an old dog new tricks!!

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

28th February 2017Lee Hardy dealt with:
Excellent information and understanding provided on why Vespa was pulling and how to fix it. It is now a pleasure taking him for a walk rather than being dragged around the streets of Warwick, it is still a work in progress but things are a lot better.
26th February 2017Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
The first time Bailey and I saw Graham, 3 weeks ago, both of us were a little stressed out. Bailey is quite reactive and will bark at everything, his reflection, the TV, sound, he had also started going for some dogs while we were out on walks. During our first session Graham sat and talked to me, answering all my questions, before showing me some basic training and commands. He explained why Bailey behaves like he does - he is scared and because he senses stress in me he believes I am scared too and he needs to protect me and himself.
Bailey and I have worked on the stuff Graham showed us - Bailey absolutely loves it, his tail wags like mad while we're going through it. We have just had our second session with Graham and Bailey is a different dog, chilled out and calm. Graham brought his dog Flora with him so he could expose Bailey to another dog and while he didn't play with her - he isn't that type of dog. He prefers his own or human company to that of other dogs - he was quite happy to share the park with her and even allowed her and some other dogs into his space without incident.
Since meeting Graham, both Bailey and I are happier. Bailey realises now that I am able to look after us both and he just has to worry about being his lovable self and I have learned to be calmer and if he does get a bit niggly Graham has shown me how to calm him down, and then the moment is over and we continue on our way.
Graham has such a calm way about him. He is softly spoken and unflappable and he gives you confidence and keeps you calm too. I cannot recommend him enough.
Thank you so much Graham.
25th February 2017Tina Edwards dealt with:
Tina made both Chester and myself feel very relaxed and comfortable during the time that she spent with us.
The techniques that Tina taught me to use with Chester have given us instant results - taking Chester out on his road walks is now a lot more pleasurable and I am feeling a lot more confident. The magic word for keeping Chester off the couch is also working brilliantly and I am looking forward to my next meeting with Tina.
Chester is a strong dog and had been taking control of walks by using his strength, jumping up, grabbing the lead and lunging towards cars. Not a pleasant experience! We worked a lot in the home at first, using simple easy techniques which felt like games to Chester as he got lots of encouragement, praise and fuss! We couldn't do much lead work as he was limping, so we did a little in his back garden, showing him in his new harness how and where he should be walking. I'm looking forward to seeing his progress and doing more work with him next time.
24th February 2017Lee Hardy dealt with:
Toby was 15weeks old and chewing everything, A week has passed and he is improving everyday. We still need more help with walking and recall but Lee will be coming to see us again soon. Toby is definitely a better behaved dog and on meeting 5 of our grand children in one go he was surprising good with them.
