Angela was very nice and just confirmed what I was thinking was wrong with Ellie but didn't know how to fix. Ellie had anxiety problems. We went through a few things then she met Ellie. I showed Angela her reaction to a couple of household items and within an hour Ellie showed a distinct change in behaviour towards them, with a few treats thrown in! I was amazed at the difference. I'm just sorry I never found her before and I'm looking forward to seeing Ellie the happier and more calmer dog I know she is.

Trainer arrived on time. Had a very friendly and warm personality. Had a great insight into helping our dog. Went into great depth explaining what our dog needed. Offered numerous invaluable training tips. Even went out in driving rain. Have recommended her to friends.

The training was excellent I really find it hard to believe that Misty could learn as much In one session as she has done , and that I already feel more confident , I took her out this morning by myself she wasn't perfect but the improvement was so good and I feel we will get so much better she walked nicely , still wants to go to everyone but I managed her , her on lead work was also good I would deffintly recommend Bark Busters

We were not new to owning dogs, our last passed away after 14 wonderful years, but we were at our wits end when we contacted Barkbusters. Our two cockapoo pups had minds of their own, were hyperactive and we felt we were losing the battle. Would we ever have two well behaved dogs?
At our first meeting with Angela she had them eating out of her hand in no time!
She suggested a change of diet, which had an almost immediate calming effect,and with a few simple demonstrations we were able to begin addressing the other issues. After the first session we could finally see a light at the end of the tunnel. It has been hard work and we are not there yet, but we have persevered and are confident they will do us proud.
Angela was always available at the end of the phone and never judgemental of our efforts. I only wish we had contacted her earlier.

Just a quick update...... We started training with Angela from Bark busters in January after struggling with a huge and powerful rescue dog who was indifferent to us and very aggressive towards other dogs. We have always had dogs before and never known such behaviour, so we were getting to our wits end and I was losing confidence in taking her out on my own.
Angela has made several visits, each time she has seen huge progress, and each time given us more advice and training tips,and a few games to try which have been great fun, so we are constantly learning.
It has made such a difference, it's hard to believe all the little everyday training tricks have brought such amazing results.
We now have a dog who listens to us and is very receptive, she wants to please and be praised.
She isn't anywhere near as aggressive when we come across other dogs and can be guided away without pulling or fighting us. We are so proud of her and the difference Angela and the bark busters training have made to our dog and ultimately our lives!
If you are hesitating about seeking help with any problems you may have with your dog then please don't, Angela is so friendly and supportive and really knows what she is talking about......I feel that we are living proof!

We met Angela last year after trying various different trainers. She kindly visited us and our pooch, and has help support us using various techniques and skills. We fully appreciate and also committed to using all the guidance and made it fun for our boxer. We both feel more confident walking past other large dogs, and have formed great leadership skills so that our boy knows who is boss. We are continuing to use and put all in place all the training Angela has taught us, and we both feel without her we would be in the same position and not enjoying our walks. We highly recommend Bark Busters, they come out whenever they are needed and you have Angela's full support.
It's been such a pleasure to work with Lori, Jules and their gorgeous boy Diesel. He is certainly a unique young man, who is a big softie and the most adorable boy with a beautiful heart. He fits perfectly with his wonderful family. They are fantastic owners who have worked really hard to help Diesel be a relaxed, happy and focused boy. It's been lovely to see Diesel's progress and to see his family's confidence grow in certain situations as they have learned and practiced some new techniques to keep Diesel nice and calm. I have loved working with you all, thank you for inviting me into your home to help you. Over the past 12 months I have made three lovely new friends. Please keep in touch and keep up the great work! xx

Best money I've ever spent, before Angela came I thought we were on a losing battle, not like me to give up on anything, Enzo wasn't my dog and I originally didn't want to be involved, but he belongs to my son and Enzo was still part of our family. Angela has changed my whole way of thinking, the difference in Enzo on her first 4 hour session has been amazing. It's like having a different dog, Angela listened to all what we said, then set the standards and I think particularly for me we have
challenged ourselves to train Enzo instead of him training us. With Angela's support, it's peace of mind knowing we chose to go for gold, simply just knowing you are always there if we need you just makes us a winning team :). Thank you Angela, Bark Busters certainly struck gold with you.
Thanks you so much Josey, for such kind words and for asking me to help you with Enzo. He is a gorgeous, intelligent young boy and I'm sure you're all going to do brilliantly with his training. I'm so pleased that he is already making good progress and you can see improvements. It's lovely to have your commitment to Enzo's training and I'm delighted to be working with you all. Looking forward to our next lesson and seeing how he's coming along. Keep up the great work! Angela x

Excellent information provided in a very patient and understandable manner. Very knowledgeable on all the problems we are facing and can't wait to put the exercises given to us into practice. Very reassuring to know that our problems can be fixed.

Well, where can I begin to say how helpful Angela has been over the past 12 months with our beautiful boy Heston xx
She came into our home and helped us with every single problem we had with him, which was a few, and he really was turning in to an even more beautiful dog. Angela is so professional yet caring at the same time, and her passion and enthusiasm for animals shines through. She even had our cat, Yoshi, getting treats!
I could not recommend Angela highly enough to anyone who needs help training their dog.
Sadly, we lost our boy suddenly age 4 a couple of weeks ago, and it's so upsetting our time working together has come to an end. Hopefully we will get to work together again x
Thanks so much for these lovely words Heather. You and Heston were doing brilliantly and you know how much I adored him. I still can't believe your beautiful boy has gone and I'm going to miss him terribly. It's been wonderful getting to know you and Heston and your lovely family and I am very sad too that our lessons have come to an end. But I not only had the pleasure of meeting and working with you and Heston, thanks to him, I've now made a lovely friend too xx RIP Beautiful boy, run free and play happily with that gorgeous smile and waggy tail. xx

It has been a pleasure and a tremendous help to have a trainer on call who comes to you. Add to that the special skills and abilities of the trainer we were lucky to get to work with, it has been a worthwhile and valuable experience. Its always clear from a dogs reaction if a person is a dog person, ours loved Angela and they just fell in with what she wanted them to do...well mostly as Bailey is a bit strong willed. She always listens and finds alternatives, offers ideas and kit to try to see if works. Its all about your relationship with your dogs. It been a pleasure and we will miss lessons with Angela, but keep working on her great ideas.
I've thoroughly enjoyed working with Elizabeth and Neil and Bonnie and Bailey over the past 12 months. They have consistently put the effort into their training and the dedication and commitment they have shown has been fantastic. Bonnie and Bailey are absolutely gorgeous dogs, they have always made a lovely fuss of me when I've visited and I've looked forward to seeing them so much over their training term. I have seen the results of their Mum and Dad's efforts and see now that it is a joy to walk the lovely brother and sister together. Thanks so much for calling for me to come and help you. You have done brilliantly and I'm going to miss you all. I absolutely adore your lovely dogs and I'm so happy and proud with the progress you have all made. Well done and keep up the great work!
