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
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!G.D., Nottingham, Nottinghamshire27th November 2016
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
We had a fantastic first session with Anthony, so impressed with his manner and knowledge, he really helped us feel at ease and understand Murphy's (our stubborn shih tzu) point of view. After just one evening session (which he purposely arranged to suit us) the difference in Murphy was amazing, he was calm, settled and seemed relieved to no longer have to try and be in charge all the time. The support is the best bit, knowing that any time in the next year we can cry for help is hugely reassuring especially as we are first time dog owners! So happy with Anthony and definitely recommend him and bark busters as a whole, who have been great from ringing for advice to quick email replies. Thank you Anthony!! All the family is looking forward to the next step in making Murphy and us happier.H.D., Peterborough, Cambridgeshire26th February 2016

Anthony was very helpful and explained everything thoroughly and easily. He listened to what we needed help on and created a plan to both ours and Nala's needs that we can easily follow and work on.
Nala has already improved and it's only been 24hours! We're able to correct and guide her so much more confidently, that it also just clicks with her.

We were told how to focus Pip's attention on us rather than other distractions. He responded very well and continues to make progress.

16th July 2017David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
Very professional and reassuring. We felt there was a solution to our issues and that it was attainable which was a great relief. The explanations were all logical and clear, and the "homework" in achievable bite-sized chunks. Improvements visible after only 48 hours.

This was helpful and conducted in a calm, friendly and relaxed fashion. There was certainly more than enough information to be absorbed in one session.

3rd June 2017David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
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.
26th May 2017David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
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.
