What our Clients are saying about us
A great insight into the world of how a dogs mind works. Really enjoyed the first lesson and look forward to the next. Can tell Anthony really knows his stuff.E.G., Nottingham, Nottinghamshire17th June 2017
Anthony was punctual, professional and polite at all times. He asked questions but listened intently to my answers and any questions I had. The pace was just right and he explained everything carefully. The practical training was excellent and I saw a difference in my dog straightaway. Anthony was with us for nearly 3 hours and we covered a tremendous amount. When he left I felt very motivated and keen to get training with my dog. Now, a week later we are progressing well and the notes Anthony sent through keep me focused on what we are trying to achieve. A very worthwhile investment - I know both my dog and I will benefit tremendously.P.A., Stilton, Cambridgeshire15th November 2016
I had my first session with Anthony yesterday. It was one of the best decisions I have made. Anthony was very professional and obviously very passionate about what he does. Could not believe how Rory responded to the training methods Anthony used. After his very first day of any sort of training he is now a different dog and even at this early stage he has become much easier . I would most definitely recommend Barkbusters to anyone having canine problems !! Thankyou Anthony.J.B., Kinoulton, Nottinghamshire8th September 2016
Anthony was thorough and tuned in quickly to our issues and gave good clear instructions and explanations. Bess has responded very well to the session and to the daily practice we have been doing with her. We've seen real results after just a few days and fully expect that things will continue to improve with each new skill mastered. Other dog owners have commented on the difference in her behaviour and manners and are envious of the results already achieved.A.B., Peterborough, Cambridgeshire31st August 2016
Anthony was fantastic. Everything he taught us he explained thoroughly and clearly. It was effective and easy to learn. We have a 3 month old Border Collie that was more than a little over excited to be in his new home and didn't display it in the best ways. Although we still have a long way to go, the improvement after just one session was amazing. Our puppy is starting to give us happiness rather than headaches. Thank you so much Anthony, looking forward to working with you more in future.L.F., Lincoln, Lincolnshire22nd July 2016

Anthony arrived and was very professional. He calmed my anxiety and gave me several tips on behavioural training and what I should look for in the dogs behaviour so I could correct it before any problems occurred.
He was not in a hurry and took his time, explaining things to me several times.
I was very pleased with the session and feel positive that if I follow his advice over time my dog will become more relaxed.

Our first session was very informative and helpful with clear explanations and demonstrations. Anthony's experience with dogs shows through and he has given me the confidence to continue with Polly's training knowing that I can contact him with any problems.
I am sure that with Anthony's help I will be able to complete the training successfully.

Found training to be very effective and the psychology behind it is very interesting. Anthony made the training methods easy to understand.

Anthony was so helpful with our two dogs we called bark busters as we were at our wits end with our Bobby who is 8. When walking he never stops pulling or barking. Anthony explained why he thought Bobby was doing this and showed us how to walk him to stop him pulling it is only day 3 and he is already getting better with the pulling early days with the barking as when Anthony was here we did not come across any other dogs but he is going to come back in 2 weeks with his own dog to work on the barking. Anthony also showed us other exercises to do with Bobby and Teddy which we are really pleased about and the boys are doing really well with them. Thank you so much Anthony we feel like a weight has been lifted off our shoulders.

The training given on the day by Anthony was excellent, useful for my dog and myself and very easy to follow. Louie has always been very easy to train and still remembers a lot of his puppy class training from 9 yrs plus ago. This new training will be a drop in a very large ocean for such a small dog, but I know he will be a happier dog in the long run.

Its very early days, infact less than 24 hours since Anthony visited us for 3 hours. The difference in our 2 dogs is significant and they are on their way to having 2 very well trained owners. !!!!! Anthony did not train the dogs, he didn't even interact with them at all, he just told us,in a very easy, calm way what to do. Its just amazing and anyone considering dog training should look here first. It may seem expensive but in our case we may have had to rehome our youngest dog so the cost is worth every penny. We hope we don't need to have any further help but its always there for when/if we need it.

Training going well so far feel Peggy is listening to me and looking to me to be her leader. Hopefully in time we will be able to walk with other dogs without her reacting.
