Very informative, clear and friendly
18th June 2016Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
We wish we had found Graham sooner! He is a natural with dogs (and humans alike !) He has a very calm and personable approach. Our main problem with Nelly was recall. We also needed help with pulling, noise and barking at foxes.
Graham took us right back to basics, observed Nelly, taking notes, before getting started. We started at home, with a training plan, which is now part of our daily routine. He showed us the tone of voice to use to get Nelly to respond, which she responds to beautifully.
Graham showed us how to stop pulling, and demonstrated this with the T touch harness and lead. We have now purchased this, and walking her seems effortless. We are all enjoying our walks and it no longer seems like a chore. On the common, Graham showed us how to start practicing recall with a long lead, which again is now part of our daily routine.
Graham has given us the tools, lead, karma wrap, detailed notes and the confidence that we can overcome the above concerns we had. This was only our first visit, and I cant wait for the next sessions.
I cant recommend Graham and Bark Busters enough. I've been raving about it to all my doggy friend owners.
18th June 2016Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn is a determined teacher who has the best interests for your dog in mind. She gave clear precise instructions in how to continue with the training and her knowledge was extensive.
16th June 2016Jacquie Callaby dealt with:
After 1st session, pulling on the leads was much improved. I can now walk both (big dogs!) without the need for a harness, with loose leads on collars, without charging!! Visitors to the house get a much more, quiet, polite welcome. Can now get both dogs to stay by me when doggie friends spotted. It's a relief for them not to charge over to say a big hello! Hardy, flat coat is somewhat belligerent about the new regime, but he is coming round slowly...Thomas, lab, has been very good with the training. Thoroughly recommend Jacqui, understood completely what we were looking to do. Both dogs not naughty, just very friendly, excitable and big, so we needed much better control, and that's what we are getting. There is no magic wand, it's training everyday and being consistent....but it works. Thank you
16th June 2016Sharon Chapman dealt with:
Sharon is so professional and worked on both on us today. I'm having less anxiety about the procedure. End of session went back to repeat all the training that Sharon showed and was easy for Pax to listen. The way Sharon worked with Pax and I will be successful. I feel comfy and Pax Jr is much calm and good listening.Thank you Sharon.See you in 2weeks time.
15th June 2016David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
Anthony really helped me to start taking charge of both dogs . Roo is only 7 months , so still lots of puppy antics ! but she responded quickly to commands she obviously understood and felt confident with ( as did I ) ....Charlie is 3 years old and has some fear/aggression issues . He also quickly responded to Anthony and I felt hope for the first time that there was calmer times ahead !
I found myself gaining confidence in my ability to continue the training programme.
On the second appointment Anthony kindly and very patiently helped me see that
it was my lack of continued confidence in myself that was slowing progress down ...I'm now really happy at the progress and hopeful that all the problems are fast being addressed and remedied .
14th June 2016Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Linda is extremely knowledgable and clearly trusts her training methods 100%. Had an instant effect on Charlie and we saw an improvement within an hour of her being there. Really happy with all techniques and information given to us. Charlie is really improving day by day and with Linda's homework training we've seen such a change in his behaviour on a short 2 week period. Really happy with service and Linda in general. Highly recommended.

13th June 2016Tracey Callaghan dealt with:
Tracy explained clearly what we needed to do to change Jesses behaviour. She now keeps off the furniture and uses her own bed. We are progressing with her lead work and their is a marked improvement. She now stays out of the window and does not bark continually at passers buy.Jess is still a work in progress but she is improving daily with the help of her training

It's like we have a new dog. I would totally recommend Estelle to any future clients.

10th June 2016Sharon Chapman dealt with:
Sharon was very patient and friendly and explained everything very clearly. She took time to find out what our specific problems were, and I was very interested to find out some of the issues could be caused by things we had never thought of (for example the behaviour of our puppy could be due to his lack of sleep - I just assumed that as he was always awake and wanted to play, this was the best thing for him!!). I now make sure he gets lots of sleep and put him in his crate after every walk.
Sharon also taught us some little games we can play, and lead training was especially helpful - just 2 days in and our puppy has almost mastered walking on a loose lead!
Although I have had a puppy before, this one has been much more challenging, so Sharon's help and advice has been invaluable.
Since our first visit, I have emailed Sharon one and called twice and she is always quick to get back and answer any queries. So far very happy. Although I paid for the year guarantee, I'm sure I won't be needing this as our puppy is responding very well. Unfortunately, he is on antibiotics after being bitten by another dog, and has a lampshade on his head - this has made him rather grumpy so putting into practice some of the techniques Sharon taught me is proving rather tricky! I'm sure once he has made a full recovery, we can pick up where we left off and continue to make good progress.
