19th March 2016Tracey Callaghan dealt with:
Tracey was very friendly and helpful. She explained all the training we needed to do with Harry along with the reasons for all the changes we needed to make for it to work. She spent 4 hours with us and we felt that her knowledge and experience were extensive. The interaction between all of us was great and, although we were shocked at finding out how much needed changing, we were left feeling very motivated to put all her suggestions into action immediately.
17th March 2016David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
We called in Anthony to help with our two dogs Monty (a gsd cross) and Bella (a staffie cross) because they both had very different issues that needed dealing with and I think we'd just got a bit tired and overwhelmed.
Anothony was so helpful and supportive during our first training session that after it ended I was left feeling alot more confident and secure in my abilities as a leader! Its only been a week since our first session but already the change in both of them is unbelievable. Once again our walks are lovely and calm and their general behaviour within the household is much improved. We're very excited to carry on with our (because we needed it as much as they did!) training to see what we can achieve.
16th March 2016Liz Johnson dealt with:
Fantastic job. Little Mo was driving us all mad with her barking and after just one session and what Liz the dog trainer showed us to do, Little mo is now not barking and if she does she stops straight away on completing the command once that's amazing. It's like having a different dog. Thank you so very much. It's the best thing ever. We have tried several other things and loads of different aids but none have worked until what Liz showed us to do. We just wished we had got Liz's help earlier. Thanks for all your help we are very happy customers.

What a lovely Man, couldn't ask for a better Trainer, will miss him when he retires. He got Roxy to do things no problem, training is going well and I really look forward to our next session.
Exactly what I've loved about this work - Meeting lovely people and working with great dogs full of potential.
16th March 2016Tracey Callaghan dealt with:
We were very impressed with the way Tracey spent time observing George before suggesting ways to deal with his problems. She explained what we had to do very clearly and gave the reasons for training him in this way.
It is still early days, but George is already much calmer and is responding well to the new regime. We feel confident knowing that we can ask Tracey to come back at any time if have problems.

15th March 2016Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Wow!!!! We didn't expect such immediate results but with Lynn's guidance and demonstrations we were amazed at the difference in our dogs behaviour. Molly (the rescue westie) has been with us for nearly 5 years and was 'top dog', whereas Hugo (the pug) was a 6 year old rescue with severe separation anxiety. On top of Molly always barking when someone came to the door and not always being friendly with other dogs whilst walking on the lead, we now had sibling rivalry, a dog who had no training whatsoever, and having to sleep downstairs to stop Hugo whining and crying all night if he wasn't with me! On We took onboard everything Lynn told us - from changing their food to how we interacted with them - and the results were fast and made having the dogs even more pleasurable. None of it was difficult and we have recommended Bark Busters to other dog owners as a result. Thank you Lynn - you've been fantastic!

13th March 2016Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
I contacted Bark Busters mainly because my 15 week old Golden Retriever would not go for a walk. He wanted to go and would get very excited when we put his lead on but when he got to the top of our driveway he would stop. If we tried to make him walk he would visibly shake. I didn't know if I was making him worse by trying to encourage him or force him, so I thought it better to seek an experts advice. We also have a few other puppy behaviour issues.
Graham was very kind and calm. He said Dillon was very head strong and I did need to be firmer with him. He did some behaviour training exercises with him and Dillon did very well. Graham told me to practice these for 20 minutes a day in short sessions. After a couple of hours Graham said we would go for a walk. He put the lead on Dillon and off we went. I was amazed that Dillon walked with Graham for a few minutes before we turned around and came home. And Dillon and I have been doing the same walk a couple to times a day since. He sometimes needs a little coaxing but he walks!
As well as helping Dillon, Graham has given me the confidence to train Dillon at home.Many thanks.
12th March 2016Shauna Hoey dealt with:
OMG I have a different dog! The commands are working well and she is taking notice. Hollie was not my dog as a pup so I wasn't able to teach her to walk on a lead? She was pulling on the lead and I could not control her, she would literally pull me over, once breaking my wrist. Just one visit from Shauna and her recommendation for the ideal collar, my life with my dog has changed and I am not afraid to take her out on the lead any longer. It was the best thing That could have happened to me and my dog.

11th March 2016Liz Johnson dealt with:
After the first training session with Liz, we found there to be a great improvement in the behaviour of both Candy and Toffee. I have always had a problem with Candy walking to heel. Following Liz's advice, she is showing that she is readily obeying commands. There has also been a significant improvement in barking. Overall, we are delighted with the improvement in their behaviour.
11th March 2016Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
Jo was very patient with Hollie,it is a difficult problem noise phobia we have to help her with, so it will take a while to see results. Everything was explained and shown when needed. Nothing felt rushed. I could see Hollie felt relaxed around Jo which helps. I saw Hollie sitting in the garden something which she had not done for a while which was great to see.
