What our Clients are saying about us
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
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 very pleasant,patient and extremely knowledgeable in dog behaviour.Having sent my dog away for training and him returning with the same problems I felt he needed one to one training.Anthony was amazing.In a short time my dog was doing exactly what was asked of him.I am following Anthony's instructions and am so pleased at the progress we are making. I feel that at last with Anthony 's expert knowledge and patience we will get there.So so grateful.Thank youM.M., Wisbech, Cambridgeshire2nd August 2016
I highly recommend Bark Busters to anyone in need of dog training! We had a 3-4 hour sessions with Anthony, who came to assist our 2 mixed breed rescue dogs with various things such as pulling on the lead, aggression towards other dogs on walks, general hyperactivity, and toileting. The session with Anthony was so incredibly informative, he started off explaining the psychology behind a dog's behaviour and how to change / correct it. We learnt so much from him! We then put things into practice and from that day that he came to our home, our dogs have been so well behaved. It is now such a pleasure to walk our dogs and not be pulled on the lead or stress about encountering other dogs and it has only been 4 weeks since we had our initial session! I am so impressed with the training and with the knowledge that Anthony passed on to us! He is such a nice person and a brilliant trainer, and he has honestly changed ours and our dogs lives. Thank you so much Anthony!C.G., Nottingham, Nottinghamshire24th July 2016
Was totally unprepared for the progress made ! Both dogs responded quickly to the training guidelines that Anthony taught me . I feel optimistic for the first time in three years , that Charlie's nervous aggression can be curbed and both dogs be a real pleasure to own ! Even Roo , a very bouncy 6 mth old, caught on fastM.W., Peterborough, Cambridgeshire16th May 2016

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.

4th December 2016David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
I have been having issues with my GSD pulling on the lead and recall so this is why I had called Bark Busters. Anthony was very friendly and this made the lesson enjoyable. My husband had taken Cube for a walk this morning following the instructions from Anthony and Cube is like a different dog already. Don't get me wrong he did pull but with the techniques we had been told to follow Cube responded straight away and walked really well next to my husband, which is something that has never happened. I know there is a lot of work to do with us, but with the changes that have happened in less than 24 hrs I'm excited for our future.
Thank you Anthony!!!
27th November 2016David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
After just one session with Anthony we have seen a huge improvement in our dogs behaviour. He was showing signs of aggressions and constant barking for attention. It has been a week since we have put Anthonys training techniques into pratice and we seem to have a different dog already! He is so much calmer, obediant and both barking and aggression has subsided significantly. We would highly reccomend Bark Busters to anyone and only wish we had contacted them sooner!

Anthony was brilliant with our dog, Scamp. He listened to our concerns, explained everything thoroughly and was very professional. He gave us demonstrations on how to carry out training techniques and showed us how to do them ourselves explaining everything along the way. We are very satisfied with the change we have seen in our dog already and look forward to our next session with Anthony.

6th October 2016David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
We found Anthony to be very polite and friendly, he explained everything clearly. I contacted Bark busters on behalf of my elderly parents, Anthony was very patient with them and didn't rush any of the training. As with anything it is consistency and repetition, it is early days at the moment but we could see changes after only the first session.
