We had our visit from Angela on Friday and learned so much. Who knew that our little Jack Russell, Milly, had us so well trained! Within the first few hours we were shown and practised techniques to stop the dog jumping up at visitors and attacking the post. 2 days in and Milly is responding well to the training. Thank you Angela.
Milly is the most adorable, intelligent little girl and as her Mum has said, was a very good trainer! It was lovely to see her responding so well to the training. Within the first session she was no longer attacking the post and was able to watch it coming through the letterbox from a distance. It will take time and consistency in the training to completely overcome her attraction to the post and to make her more relaxed and I'm confident that her Mum and Dad will keep practicing all of the training exercises in their plan so that Milly gets the full benefit of her training. Thanks for choosing Bark Busters, I look forward to seeing you and Milly again soon.

After trying numerous trainers and group sessions we met with Angela today to solve a number of issues that were happening with our boxer boy. She arrived on time, had great listening skills, understood our issues and now the journey begins. We have chosen the silver service - so having her support over 12 months which gives us peace of mind and also someone to call. She discussed Bark Busters' Techniques and after an hour we started. She showed us what to practice and how to put "rules" in place. We found her very informative and helpful and looking forward to putting the training into day to day practice. A great method that Bark Busters have which is one to one and the package is based around you and your dog. You feel supported and you have the one to one advice and guidance as well as homework to do with your dog. Due to the time Angela spends with you, your dog as well as you, you don't feel an idiot trying different methods. Thank you and looking forward to working with Bark Busters as well as our boy.
Diesel is a beautiful big gentle giant. With the correct training and leadership provided by his lovely family, he will be less anxious and over protective in the presence of strange dogs. His owners have already taught him some lovely manners and it's a pleasure to work with them and Diesel.

Firstly I'd like to say how lovely, friendly and easy to get along with Ang was, making us all feel instantly at ease, she was informative and made the things we needed to know about Betty's behaviour easy to understand and make sense.....
She gave us a series of exercises to do and from the off we were amazed at how well they worked!!
We understand that consistency is vital and have put into practice the advice and exercises given and really are amazed at the difference in Betty's behaviour, we've actually enjoyed doing it and think Betty has too!
Can't thank Ang enough ! Absolute star !

We contacted Bark Busters because our 1 year old Cocker Spaniel Khaleesi was becoming aggressive towards other dogs and was barking whenever someone came to the house. Angela came and was extremely helpful, we told her the problems we were having and she explained why our dog was behaving the way she was and showed us ways to stop her behaving this way. Angela was very knowledgeable and very good with Khaleesi, who responded very quickly to the training. Since Angela left we have been continuing with the training and are very happy with the results so far, Khaleesi has not showed any aggression towards any dogs since and is a lot better behaved. There is still some work to be done but I'm sure we will get there with Angela's help. We would highly recommend Bark Busters with anyone having problems with their dogs, especially Angela Young.

We had our first visit from Angela on Thursday and I thought she was excellent. It's not until you see theories actually put into practice that you see for yourself how quickly they can be adapted. Angela was really understanding of our needs and I didn't feel like a complete failure when it was obvious where I'd been going wrong. She was very informative on a number of issues and the visit went so much better than I anticipated. Look forward to putting the work in and achieving the desired results with Angela's help & guidance. We felt totally comfortable with Angela and she explained things easily and was very patient.
It's such a pleasure to work with Bella and her lovely family. It was lovely to see her responding so well to the training and to see the enthusiasm and determination her Mum shows in implementing the training plan. They're going to do so well!

I was really impressed by Angela's professional but friendly attitude. She is a very knowledgeable lady who is obviously doing a job she loves. Robbie responded well to the training, even though it was his first session, and I shall persevere with his various issues (particularly in respect of the TV, a major problem!). The difference in Robbie when I walked him later was amazing. It was like walking a different dog, and he responded well to my commands. I really wish I had contacted Angela sooner, it would have saved a lot of problems.

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!

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.
