After making enquires to numerous dog trainers, thank goodness I found Bark Busters, and Angela Young in particular. What a Gem!
Very professional, at the same time it was clear that she genuinely cared about my puppy. He's very active, yet anxious, which she spotted right away. In less than an hour she taught me the basics on how to handle him, which has already made a huge difference. It's clear that it was me that needed training, not my highly intelligent pup.
We discussed his diet, so for my pup's sake, and all the wasted tin food he refused to eat, I tried the diet plan Angela recommended. Thank goodness I did. My pup loves it and is thriving. He clears his dish every meal, so no more wasted food.
Angela stayed with us well over the appointment time, which I thought was wonderful of her - a professional that didn't " clock watch ".
I can't find praise enough for Angela, and would recommend her to anyone and everyone. Roll on her next visit.
Little Stan is the most adorable, intelligent and loving pup, but he was taking on too much responsibility and showing signs of stress and anxiety. After showing his lovely Mum how to provide him with the reassuring leadership that he needs and how to communicate with him in a way he understands, Stan started to relax before our eyes. I'm looking forward to seeing Stan and his Mum again soon. Thank you for calling Bark Busters Stan's Mum, I'm very happy to help and delighted that with your commitment to the training plan, that Stan is coming along well.

Angela was amazing with Lucy, she taught us how to be pack leaders and within a couple of hours we could tell that Lucy was listening. We have put all of the training into action and Lucy is responding well. If ever we need any help or support Angela is there for us, she really is our doggy angel!
11th May 2015Angela Young dealt with:
We have two rescue dogs who are calm at home but who pull like trains and bark wildly at any dogs we meet while out walking. People literally picked up their dogs and crossed the road to avoid us. After our first session with Angela we began to see some improvement in both dogs behaviour and our confidence when out with them. The attentiveness training and door manners work is really paying off. After our second visit from Angela we feel we are well on the way to having two calm, relaxed and happier dogs. It's not an overnight cure but we can see it will be a life long improvement. We can't thank Angela enough!

Angela came on Wednesday and from then we have seen such a change in Charlie. He now no longer pulls my arm out when we go for a walk. I cannot believe the changes in him. Angela was very patient with him as he is a very nervous dog. I am certain he will improve even more in the weeks to come.

I would just like to thank Angela for helping my mum and dad with their dog . Paddy likes to bark a lot and Angela has given great advice in her first visit and with the help of Angela, we can see improvement already in Paddy . Angela reassured my parents that she will help with Paddy's barking. I would recommend Angela to anybody, thanks again.
It was lovely to meet gorgeous Paddy and his Mum and Dad. He was quite nervous when I met him and his barking is his way of protecting himself and his family and home. With the correct training methods to show Paddy that he doesn't need to worry and be so protective, his barking will reduce and he will become much more relaxed.

OMG what a difference in only a few hours. Wouldn't believe I could have a calmer happier pack in a matter of hours if I hadn't seen it for myself. INSTANT improvement on lead was near miraculous. Stopped three dogs barking the same afternoon. Angela is truly a dog whisperer :-)

Angela was very good and clear in explaining what we needed to do, to improve my dogs behaviour. Within minutes Angela had Beano doing what she had told him to do. Both me and my husband were very impressed with the service Angela provided. Looking forward to the next visit.
13th April 2015Angela Young dealt with:
I would just like to say a very, very big thank you to you Angela for coming to us and meeting our very big boy Beano, our Old English Sheepdog. My husband and myself were very impressed of the work you did with us. In just a short space of time he was doing just what you asked him to do. You have given me my confidence back. Anybody reading this review, very highly recommended.
It was great to meet Beano and his lovely owners. He is a beautiful, big exuberant boy who is very intelligent and a quick learner! He responded to the training very well. With consistency and the right approach, I am confident that his owners will see him quickly become calmer and more settled and relaxed, and much easier to handle on the lead.
10th April 2015Angela Young dealt with:
Angela was very friendly and professional! She clearly knows exactly what she's talking about, and gives advice on exactly the issues you present to her. First she talked through the issues with us and then showed us how to handle them in practice! We've taken all of her advice on board and have already seen some great change in the dogs - for one, our pup hasn't barked at the sound of knocking on the door since we worked on it with Angela, despite us setting up situations to test her!
We highly recommend Bark Busters if you're struggling with any problems with your dogs. There were a number of behavioural problems we can now address properly, knowing that we've got the expertise of Bark Busters behind us and their training plan to support us through it, and are excited about working through the training plan with our dogs! It's also really great knowing that we can contact Angela if we struggle with anything or if a problem persists.

I am over the moon with Angela's first visit with Mooey and Dozer. I was getting to the point of not being able to walk them and since the visit I can walk them happily, all other problems such as barking, jumping, general disobedience has subsided dramatically I have even had visitors which have stayed for a cuppa instead of trying to leave instantly. I can't wait for her next visit to show her the improvements. Even though I knew what the problems were, I did not know how to change them .
I am absolutely delighted with the progress made with Mooey and Dozer. They are big beautiful, mischievous boys and were becoming a bit of a handful for their lovely owner. I am looking forward to seeing them again and to continue with their training! :-)
