Julie knows what shes talking about and it works! We have tried many trainers in the past and though they have worked for a while they always went wrong in the end due to the reliance on treats (after a couple days you forget to always carry treats). Bark busters works without treats so there's no panicking when you haven't got any on you, and you can be consistent with the training. Max is much better behaved and actually seems much happier now that he knows his place in the family. I'm so glad we chose them. Though I initially thought it expensive, the one year guarantee makes it definitely worth it and I'm just amazed at how quickly his behaviour has improved. The bruises and scratches on my legs have had a chance to heal since he has stopped humping legs. The techniques don't require you to be overly active which is great for me since I have a long term illness so don't always have lots of energy (don't worry, max gets walked by the rest of the family). I feel like I can do stuff without max constantly demanding attention and he seems to appreciate cuddles all the more now that its me who decides when he gets cuddles rather than him demanding them. I can't praise Julie enough. The techniques are easy to do and really work, and they can easily be adapted for small issues that weren't really noticeable before Julie came because of the bigger behavioural problems. All this and she only came for the first time less than a week ago.
It was lovely to meet Nicola and her lovely caring family, and of course, Max, who had a very unusual and off-putting way of greeting visitors! I'm so glad they have been able to get results, and that Nicola feels she can take a full part in the behavioural training. I look forward to seeing them all again.

Brilliant for us as first time dog owners.
Correcting George & us to do the right thing.
We found an immediate improvement & continue to do so.
George is a real character and definitely got a mind of his own. His owners are working hard at turning him into a lovely family dog, and have already started to realise the signs of him dominating the household and can do something about it.

Julie has been fantastic at showing me how to control Alf, we train little and often between visits and keep on top of what she has taught us. Julie is very patient, and explains things sometimes more than once. She has given me confidence which in turn feeds through to Alf. Each day he is getting better. I can't thank her enough.
Alf is a beautiful german shepherd dog who, although physically a big dog, is quite nervous of other dogs. This can come across as aggression to those who don't know him. My client wanted to be able to take him for country walks without fear of him lunging and barking at other dogs. He's getting much better and enjoys our walks with my two dogs. He's stopped being so reactive around other dogs now, and I'm sure he will soon be fully confident that other dogs pose no threat.

Julie was very patient and tactful. She explained things well and I have found a new confidence with Arthur.

Positive results acheived in a short period of time. Very pleasing indications for both the dog and the owner. Just need to keep on with the training programme and enjoy it!

Very good. Calm, polite, interested, knowledgable, great listening skills as well as articulation skills. Charlie warmed to her very quickly which is not always the case with him and strangers. Looking forward to the next year sharing the training with an expert. Too early to give definitive feedback but I am optimistic.

Romeo is a fearful rescue chihuahua who has come on in leaps and bounds but still barked at everything and everything.
Julie spent a couple of hours with me and Romeo and she taught me a command to say every time he barked. That night me and my husband had the quietest night we had ever had with Romeo and as the week has progressed it has got better and better.
Romeo can now go in the garden and chase birds and does not bark! If he does bark a swift word from me stops it. The same for visitors knocking at the door etc. It has also benefited my other barky chihuahua and stopped her from barking at the TV!
Julie has been brilliant!

I cannot believe the improvement in Ziggy after only one session with Julie. He's a lovely Miniature Schnauzer but is prone to barking especially when people call at the house. This makes visitors arrival quite stressful and not very welcoming. Ziggy also barks when it is a member of the family returning home. Julie's explanation of his behaviour made total sense and we did some simple exercises with him. I was thrilled when he waited patiently and quietly when there was a knock at the door. The rest of the family are amazed that this transformation could take place in a six year old dog during the course of one afternoon. Ziggy seems happier and calmer now and is loving spending more time in the garden - he doesn't bark at all outside now and the neighbours are delighted too! He has always demanded a lot of attention, especially from myself, but after a lesson from Julie I now choose how much fuss to give him and then he happily settles down so we are both more relaxed. Carpet fitters who came today complimented his calmness today compared to the dog in the house they'd just been to. Thanks Julie - I wish I'd contacted you six years ago!
