Alex Fraser dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Hyperactivity Sibling Rivalry - aggression or fighting between dogs in the same household

Sorry for not doing this sooner and thanks for checking how we are all doing. Since you first came to see us things have been so much better. I am pleased to stay we still have a calm quiet house. Thank you so much.

Trainer note from Alex:
I enjoy multiple dog jobs, especially when they are little dogs that bark a lot. Its often hard to hear yourself think when I first arrive, but by the end of the session the home is usually quiet and calm and this job was no different. I recently worked with 6 little barkers and the owner was blown away by the results we achieved after just 3 hours. Can't wait for the feedback.

Alex is fantastic! Bella is still a puppy learning and with Alex helping we have already seen a big difference in things. Really glad we called on Bark Busters for support. Looking forward to see Alex again this weekend to work on walking and putting lead on with out Bella mouthing.

Trainer note from Alex:
I've said it before and I'm sure I'll be saying it again before long...
......this is why I love working with puppies! Bella is a gorgeous GS, but she is going to be a big dog when she grows up. This is why it is so important to get things right from the start. I'm looking forward to catching up with them all again this weekend so we can get her walking to heel.

One session and calm has been restored in our household. I am amazed how quickly our dogs responded to these simple changes and they are so much more relaxed and happy which makes for a happy household - thanks again Alex

Trainer note from Alex:
It was so lovely catching up with my own puppy's Mummy and Granny, but boy could these 2 bark when anybody came to the door or entered the house! Within 2 hours of being there we had 2 much calmer and definitely much quieter TT's. Work will be needed to ensure they remain calm and quiet. Timing and consistency is also key to ensuring your dog/s are well behaved. In the case of these 2, I am more than confident that next time we all meet up their constant barking will be a thing of the past.

Alex Fraser dealt with: Separation Anxiety

After just two sessions with Alex my little dog Mia is a changed dog .Mia is a lot more relaxed now with people. Mia had anxiety separation problems and thanks to Alex the problem is solved .Alex is a likeable person and is very easy to talk to .Thanks again Alex .Cheers Emily

Trainer note from Alex:
After just 1 session, Mia was definitely more relaxed which was lovely to see. Mia's owner was also more relaxed due to the fact that Mia was listening to her. In regards to Mia's separation anxiety, her owner really used to worry when she left her home alone which certainly didn't help the situation. After explaining the reasons behind her anxiety and discussing ways to resolve the issue both owner and dog are much happier!! By the time I returned for the second session, I am delighted to report that neither Mia or her owner are stressing when they are separated. Keep up the good work.

Alex Fraser dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Pulling on the Lead

It only took 3 sessions with Alex to stop our little girl barking and snapping at other dogs on walks. Alex made it look very easy and we struggled at first. With lots of practice, walks soon became much calmer for all of us. Walks are now a pleasure not a chore!! Thanks you so much.

Trainer note from Alex:
This little dog was simply nervous out on walks - especially when on the lead. If a nervous dog on a lead encounters another dog, it no longer has the option of flight, so they often resort to 'fight'. We need to get the dog to trust and feel safe with their owner rather than feel they have to defend themselves. This can take time, however with hard work, great results can be achieved

Alex came to us to help with some behavioural concerns we had with our elderly rescue dog Fred. Fred was very possessive of his tennis his toys and did not respond to our instructions which made it difficult to predict his behaviour in unfamiliar situations. Alex helped us to understand that we were unclear and inconsistent in how we treated Fred meaning he was unsure how to behave. We learnt some techniques for how to set boundaries for Fred and improve our communication. We are now much happier because we understand each other much better. Thanks for all your help Alex. It just shows that you can teach an old dog new tricks!

Trainer note from Alex:
I really respect people that re-home older dogs such as Fred who they re-homed when he was about 12 years old. He has come on really well with the training methods we use and finally understands where he sits in his new pack. It proves that it doesn't matter how old a dog is. If their owner can work with them in the way we show them, great results can be achieved. Keep up the good work and I look forward to catching up in the future.

Thanks for checking how things are going. I am pleased to say that things are still going well and I would like to thank you for all your help.

Trainer note from Alex:
Its nice to know that 12 months on, things are still going well. It is important that customers keep up with the training. it doesn't have to be too structured, but rather built in to day to day life.

Alex Fraser dealt with: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Pulling on the Lead

Alfie is the second rescue staffie we have at the moment, and he is such a lovely dog. He did have 2 issues though. He pulled on his lead and he really howled when he went in the car to the park. Alex quickly helped us with his walking and he now walks really well. Alfie always seemed to be on his best behaviour when Alex came to see us and never howled the same in the car. We are pleased to say that things are so much better and we are delighted with the results

Trainer note from Alex:
The family own 2 lovely Staffordshire Bull Terriers. Both pulled on their leads and Alfie used to make a real noise when he went in the car. The pulling on the lead was easy to fix, and by the second session he was much calmer in the car. I am really pleased with the results.

We have a 5 month old English Springer Spaniel called Rocket. Alex came to us a few weeks after we brought him home and really helped us get the basics right. That first session at our house and the local park was invaluable and helped us understand how to communicate with Rocket as well as teach him some basic puppy manners. A couple of months on and he has developed into a really sociable and well-mannered puppy. We were having some problems getting him to walk to heel recently and booked Alex in to come and visit. Since that second session the results have been great and Rocket is much more attentive and pulls less.

Trainer note from Alex:
Loved working with Rocket and his parents. They have worked really hard since my first session. I was extremely impressed when I last visited them and entered the house there was no jumping up from Rocket!! He was still a bit of a challenge on his lead, however with the right technique, he quickly learnt that he needs to be a follower not a leader and walked well. Keep up the good work Mum and Dad - you have a smashing little boy!!!

After only 1 session with Alex, I am seeing a remarkable change in my dogs behaviour. My 8 month old rottie pup not only listens to me but is responding to the commands already. My walks with him are becoming less stressful, and my domineering puppy is letting ME take charge!

I am looking forward to my next session with Alex as the training is great for both my dog and myself. I would definitely recommend Bark Busters to anybody who is having problems with their dog. WE finally seem to be on the road to success. Thank you Alex

Trainer note from Alex:
Although he is a very handsome young Rottweiler, he had really started to develop his minding role and was not happy when I first entered the house. He had also started to get a bit boisterous with his owner. By the end of the first session the improvement was amazing.

His owner has worked really hard with him and over future sessions he continued to improve.

He used to be a bit dog aggressive, but I was delighted to hear that following my last session, he is now walking past dogs calmly which is great news.
